    Firstly, may I congratulate you on an AMAZING category nomination! We have had our differences of opinion, SongPop, but I feel we may just be able to salvage our relationship if you get this one right! So, without much further ado, I would like to run some ideas past you! In NO particular order, and keeping in my mind, I picked the more OBVIOUS choices - (no really obscure ones here, damn it!)

    Billy Ocean - When The Going Gets Tough (The Tough Get Going)

    Stevie Wonder - Master Blaster

    War - Low Rider

    Michael Jackson - Billie Jean

    Pink Floyd - Money

    Red Hot Chili Peppers - Higher Ground (Yes, you knew it would be here!)

    Led Zeppelin - Ramble On, or the Lemon Song...

    Primus - Tommy The Cat

    Dee-Lite - Groove Is In The Heart

    Crap, is that ten already?! OK, well, there you go...  If no-one adds to this thread, I'll be back with a fresh 10...   ;)
