Freedom fighters, films inspire top hits
Voters select world's greatest songs

More than 100,000 voters from
Senegal to Poland, Great Britain
to Peru chose the world's top ten
songs. The global poll, conducted
by the BBC, received votes from
155 countries and territories. About
7,000 songs were nominated.
CRIES FOR FREEDOM
Some songs were so embedded
in independence movements that
they've become timeless.
Under the shadow of British rule,
Irish nationalists carried out raids,
killed prominent officials and sang
Irish rebel songs.
Thomas Osborne Davis, the
founder of an Irish independence
movement, wrote A Nation Once
Again - the winner of the poll - in
the 1840s.
The famous Irish folk band The
Wolfe Tones popularized the song in
the 1960s.

Bengali poet Bankim Chandra
Chattopadhyay wrote Vande
Mataram - which translates to
"Mother, I bow to thee" - in 1876.
The song became the rallying hymn
for Indians fighting British colonial
rule in the early 20th century.
Although it's not the national
anthem, the song is played at the
close of each session of parliament.
ON THE SILVER SCREEN
Films use music to underscore
emotion and move the plot in a
certain direction. The power of
soundtracks is clear. Three of the
world's top ten songs come from
movies.
Rakkamma Kaiya Thattu is
from the movie "Thalapathy,"
India's equivalent of "The
Godfather." Thalapathy is Tamil for
"commander."
Poovum Nadakkuthu Pinchum

Nadakkuthu is from "Mugungal," a
film about the struggles of Tamils in
Sri Lanka.
Chaiyya Chaiyya is a Punjabi folk
song performed in the Bollywood
film "Dil Se."
WHERE ARE THE BEATLES?
Several University musicologists
only recognized Cher's Believe and
Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody.
American bloggers seem to be
confused by the list.
"The world hasn't really grasped
our good stuff yet, and maybe never
will," wrote one American blogger.
Artists who are popular in the
U.S. who garnered votes but didn't
make the list include the Beatles, Bob
Dylan, the Scorpions, Abba and Ace
of Base. The Baha Men's "Who Let
the Dogs Out" received two votes and
"White Christmas" received eight.
