I agree about Streets of Laredo (I'm losing the quotes for song titles...pain in the ass to type, and this ain't English class, lol). Unfortunately, country/western is the only one of the larger musical genres in which I have little background, so I'm at a loss for many c/w songs.

Of course, if I was going to be completely evil, I'd say that the theme song from Barney the Dinosaur is culturally significant, if only because it makes most sane adults want to call in air strikes on their televisions while it's playing.:D

agreed Go Blue!

i love that song "Maybe I'm Amazed" it has been all over the place. i'm very unfamiliar with James Taylor, but i do know the song "You've Got a Friend," i like Carole King's version. yeah that's another big one.

love your theme songs oh, and you can't forget the theme song to the Brady Bunch, "there was a lady...." hahahaaaa, yeah where does this madness stop? as you can see from yesterday i could not stop!! have a good 4th y'all!!

Actually, in terms of "pop culture," naming the 1812 Overture makes just as much sense as Smells Like Teen Spirit or Bridge Over Troubled Water. I'm sure Tchaikovsky would be gobsmacked to hear his music being played for Burger King commercials, at the end of American July 4th fireworks and elsewhere.:D
