This was, for me, by far the most difficult selection. I could easily have picked 20 songs from this fabulous list!! After careful consideration, however, I have whittled it down to these 10 songs:

1. All My Loving - My favourite Beatles tune.

2. California Dreamin' - The Mamas & The Papas. IMO, the greatest folk/rock song of all time.

3. Ohio - Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. One of the best protest songs of the rock era.

4. Abraham, Martin & John - Dion

5. La Grange - ZZ Top

6. S.O.S. - I'm not a big ABBA fan, but I love this song.

7. Here Comes My Baby - The Tremeloes.

8. Garden Party - Ricky Nelson

9. 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy) - Simon & Garfunkel

10. Money For Nothing - Dire Straits

I would have included I Say A Little Prayer in my top 10 if it had been Dionne Warwick's version.

2. My Happiness - Powderfinger

3. Imagine - John Lennon

4. Money For Nothing - Dire Straits

5. Personal Jesus - Depeche Mode

6. Down Under - Men At Work

7. All My Loving - The Beatles

I have a feeling this one is going to be close - I can see Imagine and All My Loving should be near the top, but otherwise I'm not sure.

I think you're right c s. I reckon it's between them. :)

Mockingbird and California Dreamin' could be a couple of 'smokeys'.
