    Tell us Your Favorite Song of the Decade

    Not sure this thread has been done yet, but maybe Angie can help us out. Name your favorite Song of the Decdade from 1950s to 2000s.

    My list:
    1950s: That'll be the Day by Buddy Holly
    1960s: Light My Fire by the Doors
    1970s: Go Your Own Way by Fleetwood Mack
    1980s: Born in the USA by Bruce Sprinsteen
    1990s: Losing My Religion by REM
    2000s: Beautiful Day by U2

    Now pick the favorite song off your list like:
    Go Your Own Way by Fleetwood Mack


    As songs have changed through the years, it would be interesting to pick your favorite.

    Sweet Child of Mine was a great song. I agree. 1980s appear to have the most great songs.

    Re: Tell us Your Favorite Song of the Decade

    This is basically impossible for me.

    1950s - "Sh-Boom" by the Chords
    1960s - "Hey Jude" by the Beatles
    1970s - "Baba O'Riley" by the Who
    1980s - "This Must Be the Place (Na´ve Melody)" by the Talking Heads
    1990s - "In the Meantime" by Spacehog
    2000s - "Abel" by the National

    And because it felt like I was choosing between children, I present the 2nd Team:

    1950s - "Shout Pt. 2" by the Isley Brothers
    1960s - "I Want You Back" by the Jackson Five
    1970s - "My Sharona" by the Knack (but only for the guitar solo)
    1980s - "In a Big Country" by Big Country
    1990s - "Underdogs" by the Coup
    2000s - "Beautiful Machine Parts 3-4" by the Apples in Stereo

    Dang. Busted. It was late in the 90's, but I just had to list that song. It was a great drive to work song.

    I would have to say that Sweet Caroline fits for every decade.

    Good call with the ISU Fight song.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
