Let me suggest two:

1. Hole in the Bucket - Harry Bella Fontane (hope I got the spelling right)

2. Boy named Sue - Johnny Cash - Even non-country listeners like this song.

When I was a youth, the UK was riven by tribal warfare: the local disco attracted punks, mods/rudies, rockers, new romantics, and yes even the odd young ted (I'm talking about 1980-81 here), who co-existed uneasily in an ambience of mutual disdain.

However, one unifying factor (as I recall) was a shared appreciation of the group Madness. It seemed impossibly churlish to dislike Madness. Even the headbangers admitted a begrudging fondness for them. So I'd be tempted to suggest one of theirs- 'Baggy Trousers' or 'House Of Fun'- as "The Song Everyone Likes"

Or, indeed, "ONE STEP BEYOND!"

You'd have to be pretty miserable not to like that, eh?

Also, I don't think I've ever met anybody that didn't rate Ian Dury And The Blockheads' "Hit Me with Your Rhythm Stick". But maybe that's just the circles I move in...

Who could forget the unbridled joy in teenage faces when locked in an arm-swinging chain with knees bent to the heavy, heavy monster sound...

Were they the same discos that always played 'Three Times a Lady' as the last song, giving those of us with no confidence the opportunity to move in a circle clutching the ass of our intended grope...?

I can't remember anybody disliking 'Too Much Too Young', mind...

If you include only the Slade version, then I agree with your list.

Slade does it much better. Good list.

This thread goes very well with the top ten thread. I think we all kind of like most of those songs. :)

Just a litle.

The Doors- Light My Fire

I like that song, but I know some people who hate it simply because of how long the solo is.

Anyway, over here in Australia, everybody loves Khe Sanh by Cold Chisel.
