Universal Songs...

I've had this discussion with some of my friends and I'll try my hardest to explain in here.

I think there are a lot of different types of songs. Some that tell stories, some that tell about a moment in life, some talk about break ups, politics, sex, some that make you laugh, dance, etc. But then there are those that can speak to everyone at anytime in there life.

'One' by U2 I think is one of those great "Universal Songs" no matter if they like U2 anyone can take something out of that song.

What do you think are some other great "universal songs".

An obvious one would probably be:

'Everybody Hurts' by REM

I'm going to be thinking of more songs, very interesting topic

Hunters & Collectors - Throw Your Arms Around Me
(75% of their catalogue would sort of fit the description of this thread I guess)

It really is a pity too many people outside certain parts of Europe and Australia are not familiar at least with this song Salome. Any Americans reading, please, go and download this song. Listen to it twice and then write what you think.

By My Side and Never Tear Us Apart by INXS.

well, look for Hunters & Collectors at just about any source where you can d/l mp3's and it should be about the only song of theirs that will pop up

yes, yes, yes, yes!!!!!

For anyone in the world, who is not familiar with H&C, then download this song. In my opinion they SHIT all over INXS, Crowded House, Silverchair- they are truly one of the BEST Australian bands, ever and 'Throw your arms around me', is their gold medal winning song

definately the sound of silence
and what about 'I cant get no satisfaction', that riff is soo universal
teach your children- Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
smells like teen spirit- spoke to a whole generation that song
dont dream its over- Crowded House
give peace a chance- John Lennon
respect- aretha franklin

I've heard of Hunters and Collectors...can't recall if I've heard that particular song, though, at this time.

Anywho...I'll agree with a lot of the songs mentioned here.

How about "Free Fallin'" by Tom Petty. I can't really think of too many people out there who don't like that song.

Angela
