    [QUOTE]"Imagine" by John Lennon would be my choice.

    I love "Imagine," but I have actually been in places where I have heard groans when this song came on and the station abruptly changed.  Some people really object to lines like "Imagine no religion." Again, certainly not me.  "Imagine" is as close to my personal anthem as a song can get.  But some songs are not as universal as you may expect.

    Well, by "universal" I mean maybe about 99% universal, of course.

    There will always be that one negative out of a hundred. However , if I was the one "negative" in a room of 100 people that all thought YMCA was a great song...I'd be out of there in a heartbeat!!!

    I can understand your points of view but I still disagree... (It's hard for me to make my point on a computer)

    Talent can only bring you so far and then you must progress. I have played drums for 20 years without any lessons and I now feel an inability to communicate because I have missed quite a bit by just playing out. Anyways, to Like or Dislike a style of music is one thing but to be able to fully appreciate any style of music an education is a must. Yes, Punk is a great raw style and yes you can appeal to the masses easier but considering music is an awesome tool of communication, I would also love to be able to communicate with the masters. I never said that I look down on people with the talent but I do feel a balance is what truly makes a style of music live on & on.....

    Oh well, I could go on and on but I won't....

    "We Are Family" comes to mind, if only as represented at seemingly every wedding or wedding-related function I've ever been to (except mine...I banned it  :P).  Same goes for "Shout", "Twist & Shout" and, anywhere near Boston, "Dirty Water"....

    And maybe a strange choice, but "Werewolves of London" seems like one of those perfect, nobody-dislikes-it type of songs that you could play in any club or bar and get people tapping along.
