    Re: 1 saong to represent humanity


    Since you said only one song, I'll give you four that immediately come to mind and you can choose the one that fits best:

    Imagine - John Lennon


    What a Wonderful World -Louie Armstrong   


    Highway to Hell -AC/DC


    On a Road to Nowhere -Talking Heads



    Depends on your perspective

    I remember when you told me that classical "wasn't a song" -- just teasin.  Maybe some ambient music?   

    Let's go with the Beatles and the universal language of love:

    All You Need is Love.  

    For Boston exclusively:  Dirty Water.   :D

    how dare you! take it back! Cool

    if we broadcast ambient to outerspace maybe we'd put an end to a centuries-old intergalactic war or something...

    perhaps some EitS?  if we go with Sigur Ros, I'd definitely say NY Batteri or Hoppipolla.

    I'd prob stick with Beethoven's 9th

    From A Distance...by Bette Midler

    From a distance the world looks blue and green,
    and the snow-capped mountains white.
    From a distance the ocean meets the stream,
    and the eagle takes to flight.

    From a distance, there is harmony,
    and it echoes through the land.
    It's the voice of hope, it's the voice of peace,
    it's the voice of every man.

    From a distance we all have enough,
    and no one is in need.
    And there are no guns, no bombs, and no disease,
    no hungry mouths to feed.

    From a distance we are instruments
    marching in a common band.
    Playing songs of hope, playing songs of peace.
    They're the songs of every man.
    God is watching us. God is watching us.
    God is watching us from a distance.

    From a distance you look like my friend,
    even though we are at war.
    From a distance I just cannot comprehend
    what all this fighting is for.

    From a distance there is harmony,
    and it echoes through the land.
    And it's the hope of hopes, it's the love of loves,
    it's the heart of every man.

    It's the hope of hopes, it's the love of loves.
    This is the song of every man.
    And God is watching us, God is watching us,
    God is watching us from a distance.
    Oh, God is watching us, God is watching.
    God is watching us from a distance

    I recognize that 'From a Distance' song because the Byrds did a version of it for their box set.
