1. A-Ha: 'Take on Me' (1984)

At heart, "Take on Me" is just a simple synth-pop song. However, through its course, the singer ranges nearly two-and-a-half octaves, soaring to high notes that are exhilarating to hear. It became a No. 1 pop smash around the world and featured a highly memorable video using pencil sketch animation, which took home six awards at the MTV Video Music Awards.

2. John Lennon: 'Imagine' (1971)

John Lennon himself stated that "Imagine" is as good as anything he wrote with the Beatles. The song remains one of the most powerful and poignant pleas for a peaceful world ever recorded. It reached the top 10 in both the U.S. and the U.K. upon its initial release.

3. Queen: 'Bohemian Rhapsody' (1975)

Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" is an epic recording. At the time of its release, it was the most expensive song ever recorded. Notably, the song does not have a traditional chorus but instead is organized in distinct movements. "Bohemian Rhapsody" topped the pop singles chart in the U.K. for nine weeks and is regularly cited as the greatest pop single of all time in U.K. polls. It reached the top 10 in the U.S. on two different occasions.

4. Bruce Springsteen: 'Born to Run' (1975)

Bruce Springsteen has stated that he wrote "Born to Run" as a last-ditch effort to become a star. His first two albums had been critically acclaimed but didn't sell particularly well. The song is essentially a passionate, heroic love letter to a girl named Wendy, which features such powerful imagery as "kids huddled on the beach in a mist" and "highways jammed with broken heroes." Along with the rest of the album, "Born to Run" did indeed help propel Bruce Springsteen to the top. He appeared on the covers of Time and Newsweek, and the album hit No. 3 on the charts. Neither of his first two albums had even placed inside the top 50. The song itself reached No. 23 on the pop singles chart in the U.S.



5. Madonna: 'Like a Prayer' (1989)

Madonna's classic "Like a Prayer" grew out of a concerted effort by the singer to record something more adult. She was inspired by the Roman Catholic belief in transubstantiation, by which the bread and wine in the Eucharist become literally the body and blood of Christ. The song and accompanying video generated controversy, but the anthemic sound of "Like a Prayer" and its gospel backing chorus were enthusiastically received by fans, who turned it into a No. 1 pop smash.


6. ABBA: 'Dancing Queen' (1976)

The Swedish pop superstars first performed "Dancing Queen" live as part of a televised gala honoring the wedding of Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf and his bride, Silvia Sommerlath. The song went on to be a No. 1 pop hit around the world and was certified gold in both the U.S. and the U.K. It is the legendary group's only No. 1 hit in the U.S.  


7.Beatles: 'Yesterday' (1965)

"The Guinness Book of Records" claims that no song has inspired more cover versions than "Yesterday." A melancholy ballad comprised of Paul McCartney's vocals laid over a string quartet, it details the aftermath of a relationship gone sour. However, when something so simple is done so perfectly, it becomes a classic. The other Beatles members were at first adamantly against including the song on an upcoming album because the sound was so different from their other work. They did veto its release as a single at home in the U.K. In the U.S., the song was a No. 1 hit. A 1999 BBC poll voted "Yesterday" the Best Song of the 20th century.


8. Backstreet Boys: 'I Want It That Way' (1999)

The ballad "I Want It That Way" is seen by many as one of the ultimate boy band singles. The Backstreet Boys earned Grammy Award nominations for both Song and Record of the Year with the recording. It topped both mainstream pop and adult contemporary radio charts.



9. Bon Jovi: 'Livin' on a Prayer' (1986)

Although Jon Bon Jovi did not like the original recorded version of "Livin' on a Prayer," a reworking of the song has turned into his band's signature hit. It has become a favorite for jukebox singalongs and has sold more than 3 million digital copies. 


10. Bob Marley: 'Three Little Birds' (1980)

To many fans, the upbeat, inspirational words of reggae hit "Three Little Birds" are the essence of reggae legend Bob Marley. It was released as a single from his 1977 gold-certified album "Exodus."
