As the 21st Century began, many organizations and media listed their Top 100 songs of the 20th Century. Four of my records were on almost all lists! "American Pie" by Don McLean was in the Top 10 on all lists, his hit "Vincent" was also in the Top 100; "At Seventeen" by Janis Ian made most lists and "Get Together" by The Youngbloods was in the Top 100 on many lists.
