Rock me Amadaeus by Falco. I know they had other hits in Europe, but that was the ONLY song that was a hit here in American. Honorable mention goes to safety dance by men without hats.

I can't hear "Stuck in the Middle With You" without thinking of Reservoir Dogs. brutal.

My pick- Norman Greenbaum ...Spirit in the Sky. Rocks with that distorted guitar.
