Prince, "1999"

It sounds quaint now, but back in 1982, with renewed fears of the Cold War and nuclear proliferation, some folks thought we'd never make it to the millennium. Prince captured the zeitgiest with this apocalyptic anthem, which will party your end-of-the-world blues away. "We could all die any day, but before I let that happen, I'll dance my life away," he sings.
