After being prompted by a commenter, I thought that we could take a stab at putting together some the greatest American songs of all time. Please notice that I said “we.” I think that this could be a an absolutely fabulous project, but I’m going to need some help. This is going to be an interactive project. Please post songs that you think should be included in the Great American Songbook. The criteria for Great American song is somewhat loose. It has to be more than simply a popular tune. It really has to transcend its time. For that matter, let’s not restrict the genre to pop music or rock ‘n roll or symphonic.
Let’s see what we can come up with. Tell your friends. I look forward to your input.
