THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
133-The Doors-Riders on the Storm.
1971-Number 22 single.
Best Bit-At.2.41.I believe that an artist records all their best work early on in their careers,but like every good rule there are always exceptions.This was the last song that Jim Morrison recorded before his death.
Jim Morrison(see also best songs 460 and 235) (December 8,1943-July 3,1971) put many of his short life’s inspirations into this song.For example some of the lyrics relate to mass murderer Billy Cook who was executed in 1952,while other lyrics echo the American poet Hart Crane’s poem,’Praise for an Urn,’which includes the line ‘Delicate riders of the storm.’Another inspiration was the 1948 Stan Jones song ‘(Ghost) Riders in the Sky,’made popular when recorded by Johnny Cash.
My interpretation of the song is that we are born into a world where we have to make the most of every opportunity,but along the way there are many dangers,but if we work together we can win out in the end.
‘Girl you gotta love your man,take him by the hand,make him understand.’

THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
134-Depeche Mode-Blasphemous Rumours.
1984-Number 16 single.
Best Bit-At 1.44.Those with faith will accept any situation that occurs and still believe.
The song tells of a 16-year old girl who attempts suicide but fails,over the course of the next two years she turns to God but is killed in a car accident at the age of 18.
In the UK the song was considered too anti-religious to be broadcast during the daytime by the BBC and other organisations.Because of the controversy surrounding the song Depeche Mode released the track ‘Somebody’ making the release a ‘double-A-side.’
Depeche Mode(see also best songs 968 and 261) singer Dave Gahan explained.’I’m by the way not anti-religious at all,I only appose a certain kind of religion that was forced upon me when I was young.The song only wants to say that no one should let someone force anything upon him.You have to choose yourself what you wanna do with your life.’
‘I don’t want to start any blasphemous rumours but I think that God’s got a sick sense of humour and when I die I expect to find him laughing.’

THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
135-Led Zeppelin-Whole Lotta Love.
1969-Was not released as a single in the UK until 1997 when it reached Number 21.
Best Bit-At 0.01.A cover version by the band C.C.S.was used for many years for the opening titles to play over the top 40 singles chart rundown for Top of the Pops,which is ironic because Led Zeppelin never released singles in the UK.
A lot of music critics cite this song as the start of ‘Heavy Metal’ music,influencing bands such as Black Sabbath and Deep Purple,some have said that Led Zeppelin were as important to the 1970’s as the Beatles were to the 1960’s.
‘Whole Lotta Love’ started out as a guitar riff written by Jimmy Page and developed by the other band members Robert Plant,John Bonham and John Paul Jones.Lead singer Robert Plant provided the lyrics which were contested in a court case in 1985 by Blues artist Willie Dixon who claimed that parts of his song ‘You Need Love’ recorded by Muddy Waters in 1962 had been used without his consent,Dixon won the case receiving back dated royalties and his name was added to the songs writing credits.
‘You need cooling,baby I’m not fooling,I’m gonna send ya back to schooling.’

THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
136-Lonnie Donegan-Cumberland Gap.
1957-Number 1 single.
Best Bit-At 1.12.Previous versions of the song probably didn’t include the lyrics,’Two old ladies sitting in the sand,each one wishing the other was a man.’
Cumberland Gap is a traditional folk song originating from the Eastern United States and dating back to the latter half of the 19th Century.The songs title refers to the Cumberland Gap,a mountain pass in the Appalachian Mountains at the juncture of the States of Tennessee,Virginia and Kentucky.
The first recording of the song was in 1924 from the American ‘Old Time’ fiddle player Ambrose Gaines ‘Unkle Am’ Stuart.Other notable recordings are from Woodie Guthrie from the mid 1940’s and a live version performed by Earl Scruggs at the Newport Folk Festival in 1959.
In 1957 Lonnie Donegan,MBE(1931-2002) (see also best songs 484) took his Skiffle version to Number 1 in the UK for five weeks.
Before the Beatles,Donegan was Britain’s most successful and influential artist. Paul McCartney said,’We all bought guitars to be in a Skiffle group.he was the man.’Brian May said,’He really was the cornerstone of English Blues and Rock.’Roger Daltrey said,’The man who really made me feel like I could actually go out and do it was a chap by the name of Lonnie Donegan.’
‘Well the Cumberland Gap ain’t nowhere,fifteen miles from Middlesborough.’

THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
137-The Jackson 5- I Want You Back.
1969-Number 2 single.
Best Bit-At 2.04.For most artists to have recorded their best song by the age of 11 would be a career highlight,but Michael went on to even greater things….as I’m sure your probably aware.
In order to promote the up and coming solo career of Diana Ross who had recently departed The Supremes,the head of Motown Records Berry Gordy came up with the brilliant idea of telling the world that Ross had discovered The Jacksons,he called their debut Album ‘Diana Ross Presents The Jackson 5.’In-fact the person who put Gordy in touch with the brothers was Motown employee Bobby Taylor through his acquaintance with Gladys Knight who knew of The Jacksons(see also best songs 812-511-249 and 191.)
‘I Want You Back’ was co-written by Berry Gordy,Freddie Perren (who would go on to write ‘I Will Survive’ for Gloria Gaynor,) Alphonso Nizell and Deke Richards(see also best songs 365.) Together these four songwriters worked under the banner of ‘The Corporation’ along with other artists signed with the Motown label.Each of the first four Jackson 5 singles(I Want You Back,ABC,The Love You Save and I’ll Be There) were all credited to The Corporation an all went to Number 1 on Billboard.
‘When I had you to myself I didn’t want you around,those pretty faces always made you stand out in a crowd.’

139-Prince Buster-One Step Beyond.
1964-Has never charted in the UK.
Best Bit-At 0.03.’Hey you,don’t watch that,watch this!This is the heavy heavy monster sound.’
Prince Buster(see also best songs 734) wrote this song in 1964 which first appeared as the ‘B-side’ to his single ‘Al Capone.’The song was brought to the attention of a whole new generation when British Ska group Madness(see also best songs 801) took their version to Number 7 in the UK chart in 1979.

THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
140-Daft Punk-Da Funk.
1996-Number 7 single.
Best Bit-At 2.32.Ever wondered how Daft Punk got their name?(probably not) well now you can find out.
Daft Punk are the duo of Thomas Bangalter and Guy Manuel de Homen-Christo,they originally played together in an Indie Rock band called ‘Darlin” named after The Beach Boys song.A negative review in ‘Melody Maker’ magazine by Dave Jennings called the music of Darlin’ ‘A daft punky thrash,’ this amused Bangalter and Homem-Christo who decided it was a good name for their new project.After Darlin’ disbanded they joined forces and changed their musical style by experimenting with drum machines and synthesizers.
‘Da Funk’ was initially released in 1995 to little success,but did receive a boost when The Chemical Brothers incorporated it into their live shows.After a bidding war amongst several record labels Daft Punk signed with ‘Virgin’ and released their debut Album ‘Homework.’
As for the songs video Bangalter has stated,’There is no story.It is just a man-dog walking with a ghetto-blaster in New York.Is it about human tolerance?Integration?Urbanism? There’s really no message.There will be a sequel someday.’

THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
141-The Beatles-All You Need Is Love.
1967-Number 1 single.
Best Bit-At 3.23.At the current time of writing the record for a song being viewed on YouTube in a 24 hour period is 74,600,000 held by Japanese boy band ‘BTS’ featuring Halsey with the song ‘Boy With Luv.’ Small fry in comparison to what the Beatles did 52 years earlier.
On June 25,1967 the Beatles were asked to take part in the very first ever live international satellite television programme called ‘Our World.’Alongside other creative artists such as Opera singer Maria Callas and painter Pablo Picasso they were performers representing nineteen nations over a two and a half hour broadcast to twenty four countries around the world,’All You Need Is Love’ was performed for the first time live to an estimated audience of somewhere between 400-700 million people.
The song was written by John Lennon(see also best songs 927-599-473-456-319-238-218 and 168) who realising he could send out a message to the world made the lyrics as simple as possible so every nation could understand them.The time of this songs recording has become known as the ‘Summer of Love.’
