My Favorite Song by.............

It's simple: Listed below are some of the most successful singers and bands of the past 50 years. Name your favorite song by each one. Do this however you want. You can do them off the top of your head or think long and hard about each one and even do research to jar your memory. You can also use the internet or iTunes. If you don't know or like any songs by a given artist, feel free to type in "none" or "pass."

Copy the rules and post your list as a note and tag me and whatever other friends of yours you think would enjoy this exercise. If I didn't tag you but you are reading this list, post a list anyway and also tag me. Feel free to add comments to your choices.
