Any list that doesnt include "Peanut Butter Jelly Time" is a farce.

What was the influence of the New Order song? I can figure out most of the others.

We Are the World was a copycat of #10. Do They Know it's Christmas (Band Aid).

American singers saw that and said "Oh crap! We'd better do a charity song now too or we'll look bad compared to those Brits!!" and We Are The World was thus conceived.

^ It's more of a British thing (as Q is a British magazine). Blue Monday was the influence for about 75% of all pop music in England from the '80s through to the '90s. It also started the 12" dance-remix craze.

Hey, you can dance if you want to.

Just leave your friends behind.

Because your friends don't dance and if they don't dance, well, there no friends of mine.

(er, something like that . . . )

How did Blue Monday by New Order change the world. I've never even heard it.

^From a recent thread, this song.

Upon its release, hospitals across the globe were crippled by a deluge of patients with foot injuries, incurred by kicking stereo systems in futile attempts to make the wailing stop. Masochists and "accident looky-loos", a surprisingly large proportion of the population, fed the crisis and, along with overburdened health care facilities and insane asylums, the music industry took years to recover and to slowly regain the wary public's trust.

Dude, don't joke around. It's obviously "Complicated."

I personally like What a Wonderful World, guess it didn't exactly spawn any musical genre which seems to be the theme of the list though...

I wouldn't go that far...at least half of those songs helped to change music completely, and music most definitely has a profound effect on the world.
