What songs deserve the label "masterpiece?"


Base you choices on originality, meaningful and poignant lyrics, staying power, and all that makes the song a classic and memorable tune. My pics: "Is it a Crime" by Sade, "I Will Always Love You" by Dolly Parton (Whitney Houston's version), and "Bridge Over Troubled Water" Simon and Garfunkel's version.
