The Beatles Bootleg Recordings Richard Rodgers Lorenz Hart. Live at the BBC. Then came "Some Girls," which would become the band's best-selling album, led by the funky disco of "Miss You. Peter Gabriel - "Sledgehammer". Warner Bros. Dire Straits - "Money for Nothing". Weeks on top: 3. He modeled the guitar parts after ZZ Top, which were second to none at the time, and the result was a massive hit with the music video to match.
Weeks on top: 2. It's the song that single-handedly pushed Percy Sledge into the Rock Hall. And it's one of the great soul songs of all time that's proved timeless.
Elvis Presley - "Suspicious Minds". Originally recorded by Mark James, "Suspicious Minds" became a signature hit for Elvis Presley and served as a return to form after his Comeback Special. Stevie Wonder - "Superstition". In many ways, "Superstition" is the starting point for Stevie Wonder's dominant creative-period of the s. It was his first chart-topper in a decade. But it was The Platters' delicate and sophisticated version that soared to No.
Neil Young - "Heart of Gold". One of Neil Young's signature songs, there's no mistaking "Heart of Gold" right from its opening chords. The acoustic track was performed out of necessity, as a back injury kept Young from playing electric guitar. Madonna - "Like a Prayer". Arguably Madonna's greatest song, "Like a Prayer" finds Madonna getting more personal than she'd ever been. For cynics, it was jarring to see a woman who had created some of the most sexually suggestive pop songs of the s singing about God.

Michael Jackson - "Beat It". For a time there, it felt like the singles from "Thriller" just got bigger and bigger. The Byrds - "Turn! To Everything There is a Season ".
Weeks at the top: 3. The Byrds took a folk song written by Pete Seeger and turned in into one of the most important folk rock songs of the s. The track was even more complex than it sounds, taking a whopping 78 takes to complete. Stevie Wonder - "Sir Duke". Of all Stevie Wonder's No. It's his love song to music, more specifically jazz and Duke Ellington. It's proof that Wonder could do no wrong during his brilliant s run.
Weeks on top: 4. There was no escaping Pink Floyd's "The Wall. Ray Charles - "Hit the Road Jack". Charles put his voice, backup singers, and a full band behind it for one of the catchiest songs of his career.
The fourth No. Bad Boy Records. The Notorious B. The Beatles-"Ticket to Ride". The first of several Beatles songs on this list. Not only was "Ticket to Ride" one of the more sophisticated compositions the Beatles had put together up until that point. It was one of the more complex and intelligent pop songs to grace this Earth. Prince and the Revolution - "Kiss". And "Kiss" would have been a hit whether it was attached to a film or not.
It was a monster record in and one of Prince's most unique, yet most accessible singles. George Harrison - "My Sweet Lord".
Pop quiz: Who was the first ex-Beatle to have a No. No, not Paul or John. The song builds and builds into the kind of stunning epic that helped "The Joshua Tree" become a monster album.
