10. Rocket Man - Elton John

Reason why I chose that is because last night I was listening to the local college station (WKNC) and the DJ played the original songs which were sampled for her favorite hip hop tunes. It was like listening to a classic pop set, of which Rocket Man was one, but somehow the set became something cool because of that one unifying characteristic.
