THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
646-Paul McCartney and Wings-Juniors Farm.
1974-Number 16 single.
Best Bit-At 3.56. Make your own mind up what the song is about,but it’s probably about drugs,the state of the economy and America’s disgraced President Nixon.
While recording in Nashville Paul McCartney and the band Wings stayed at the ‘Lebanon,’Tennessee farm of Curly Putman Junior,which accounts for the song’s title.Putman (November 20,1930-October 30,2016) was an American Country and Western singer/songwriter.His two best know song’s in the UK are ‘D-I-V-O-R-C-E’ a Number 12 hit for Tammy Wynette and the classic ‘Green Green Grass Of Home'(see best songs 964) a Number 1 single for Tom Jones.

THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
647-Van Halen-Jump.
1984-Number 7 single.
Best Bit-At 3.34.We’ve already enjoyed a kickass guitar solo and a kickass keyboard solo and now hidden away right at the end of the song a guitar riff to die for.
The guitar riff wasn’t wasted because in 1991 Van Halen used it again to form the basis for their Billboard top 30 single ‘Top Of The World.’The synthesizer used on ‘Jump’ was a point of contention in the band,Eddie Van Halen wanted to use it,but David Lee Roth thought it would look like they were selling out to get more radio play.Using a synthesizer instead of a guitar as the lead instrument was a huge departure for Van Halen,this ultimately led to Roth leaving the band.

Best Bit-At 0.55 While appearing on the legendary American music television programme ‘Soul Train’ The O’Jays were asked if the song was inspired by ‘Soul Train,’they replied ‘yes’ but of course they were just being nice.

THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
649-Slade-Cum On Feel The Noize.
1973-Number 1 single.
Best Bit-At 0.01 Three very noizy baby’s.
The song’s introduction of Noddy Holder shouting ‘baby baby baby’ had just been a microphone test and was not intended for the finished recording.
In the 1970s Slade tried and failed to be a success in the States.It wasn’t until American Rock band Quiet Riot covered ‘Cum On Feel The Noize’ in 1983,taking the song to Number 5 on Billboard and selling over 1 Million copies that Slade received recognition and finally achieved a top 20 single with ‘Run Runaway’ in 1984.

1942-It did not chart until 1977 when it reached Number 15.

The song was written by Herman Hupfeld for the 1931 Broadway musical ‘Everybody’s Welcome,’ but was made memorable when sung by Arthur ‘Dooley’ Wilson in the 1942 film ‘Casablanca.’The song connected Rick Blaine(Humphrey Bogart) and Ilsa(Ingrid Bergman.)
Aside from being an actor Dooley Wilson was a professional drummer by trade and did not play the piano.In the film the piano is dubbed and Wilson pretends to play.The pianist was Eliot Carpenter.

1984-Number 16 single.
Best Bit-At 0.48.Billy Gibbons,Frank Beard and Dusty Hill,guess which one doesn’t sport a beard?
The name ZZ Top,according to Billy Gibbons,came from a tribute to BB King.The band originally were going to call themselves ZZ King but decided that King was at the ‘top’ of the Blues world.
Legs is taken from their 1983 Album Eliminator which was the bands eight studio release and their most successful,selling in excess of one million copy’s in America alone.The Album also includes the singles ‘Gimme All Your Lovin’ and ‘Sharp Dressed Man.’
The band wanted to be easily found in ‘The Guinness Book Of Hit Singles’ which is why their name starts with ‘ZZ.’ If you want to find them go to the very last page of the book.
