What Song Had the Greatest Historical Impact on the World?
Here’s the latest edition of my regular series — An Unconventional Convention:
AN UNCONVENTIONAL CONVENTION — LVII
What song has had the *greatest historical impact* on the world?
Music can be powerful. It can alter our emotions. It can change how we think. It can motivate us to do good things. It can motivate us to do bad things. It can ignite even revolutions.
Songwriting dates all the way back to the Middle Ages. All cultures produce music of some kind. Millions of songs have been written over the centuries — recorded and performed in every country on earth.
Your challenge today is to pick the ONE SONG that’s had the most profound impact — which can be either good or bad. What song has gone so far as to alter the course of human history? Certainly, some songs have changed how people think and what they believe. Moreover, some songs echo deeper instincts that don’t always produce a positive outcome. Some songs can be bad and motivate people to harmful things.
Keep in mind this is not a question about the “best song” or “most popular song.” This is only about songs that have *made a difference” in some way.
BONUS QUESTION: What specific impacts did your song choice have on people? Try to be as specific as possible.
This is the FIFTY-SEVENTH edition of A.U.C. Here’s another challenging question that will require some contemplation. Honestly, I have *no idea* what my answer will be. I need more time to think about it.
So, what’s your pick?
