The 1000 best songs in the world ever.
737-George Harrison-My Sweet Lord.
1971-Number 1 single.
Best Bit-At 2.38 The first of The Beatles to have a solo Number 1 single-Ringo is still waiting for his.
Harrison wrote My Sweet Lord in praise of the Hindu God Krishna,while at the same time intending the lyrics to serve as a call to abandon religious sectarianism through his deliberate blending of the Hebrew word Hallelujah with chants of Hare Krishna and Vedic prayer.
In the UK the song went on to become the biggest selling single of 1971.

The 1000 best songs in the world ever.
739-The Four Seasons-December 63(Oh,What A Night.)
1976-Number 1 single
Best Bit-At 0.15 Unusually for a Four Seasons song Frankie Valli was not the lead vocalist.
The song features drummer Gerry Polci on lead vocals,with Frankie Valli singing the bridge sections and backing vocals and Don Ciccone singing the falsetto part.The songs lyrics were originally set in 1933 with the title ‘December 5th 1933’ and celebrating the repeal of prohibition,but the lyrics were changed at the urging of Frankie Valli to a nostalgic remembrance of a young mans first affair with a woman.
