Speaking of classic hits, let’s take a look at some of the essentials that you absolutely must add to your playlist ASAP…

  1. “Bohemian Rhapsody” — Queen

This timeless tune is a masterpiece of rock opera and has been hailed as one of the greatest songs of all time. With its soaring vocals, intricate harmonies, and epic guitar solos, it’s sure to give you chills in all the right places. 

  1. “Stairway to Heaven” — Led Zeppelin

This legendary track is a true classic — with its haunting melody, intricate guitar work, and poetic lyrics. It’s a song that’s been analysed and dissected countless times over the years, but it still manages to maintain its magic and mystery today. 

  1. “Hotel California” — The Eagles

A haunting guitar riff and memorable lyrics make this song one of the most recognisable of all time. It’s a track that’s been covered by countless artists over the years, but no one does it quite like The Eagles in their 1976 original.

  1. “Mr. Blue Sky” — Electric Light Orchestra

This upbeat and cheerful song is the perfect pick-me-up for any day, with its catchy melody and uplifting lyrics. And with BeFibre’s high-speed internet, you can experience every detail of this song’s intricate instrumentation and production.

  1. “Don’t Stop Believin’” — Journey

This feel-good anthem has been a staple of radio stations and karaoke bars for decades, and for good reason. With its catchy chorus and uplifting lyrics, it’s a song that never fails to put a smile on your face. 

  1. “Careless Whisper” — George Michael

Smooth and sultry, this track is a true ’80s classic — with its iconic saxophone solo and unforgettable chorus. BeFibre’s crystal-clear connection delivers sound quality that will transport you back to the days of big hair and neon lights for the ultimate audio experience.

  1. “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” — Shania Twain

Who doesn’t love a girl power anthem? And, as if this dancefloor filler wasn’t enough of a feel-good masterpiece already, Shania Twain’s collaboration with pop music sensation Harry Styles at Coachella 2022 took it to a whole new level. No, we’re still not over it.

  1. “Good Vibrations” — The Beach Boys

Dominated by riff changes, echo-chamber effects, and elegant harmonies, this Beach Boys hit has aged very gracefully since its 1966 release. Did you know it’s also home to the very first theremin heard on a pop record?

  1. “A Hard Day’s Night” — The Beatles

Are jangly guitar riffs and infectious energy your thing? In that case, this timeless classic — first released in 1964 — will be right up your street.

  1. “Dancing Queen” — ABBA

Representing the height of Swedish Europop, this disco classic is a must-add to any party playlist, with its infectious beat and unforgettable chorus resonating with listeners across multiple continents.

  1. “Respect” by Aretha Franklin

What you want, baby BeFibre’s got. With our seamless streaming you can experience every nuance and detail of this empowering masterpiece, with powerful vocals and message of self-worth, in all its glory.

  1. “Mr. Brightside” — The Killers

A true crowd pleaser to suit multiple occasions, Mr Brightside’s catchy guitar riffs and infectious sing-along chorus are second-to-none. Lyrically, the tune depicts a true story of jealousy and paranoia when keyboard player Brandon Flowers walked into a bar in Las Vegas and found his girlfriend cheating on him.

  1.  “Hey Ya” — Outkast

Funky, catchy, infectious. First charting in 2003, this seminal track by hip hop duo Outkast is an essential addition to any playlist. However, despite its melodic beat and snappy hook, its lyrics reveal a much more sombre meaning surrounding modern-day relationships. Go and have a listen — you’ll see.

  1. “Piano Man” — Billy Joel

Epitomising the man himself, it comes as no surprise that Billy Joel’s first official single is also his most-loved of all time. A true masterpiece of storytelling, with its vivid characters and poignant lyrics, it’s a gift that keeps on giving every listen.

  1.  “Sweet Caroline” — Neil Diamond

This sing-along classic is a true earworm that has been delighting music fanatics since its release in 1969. Funnily enough, it was written about his second wife, Marcia Murphey — but he needed a three-syllable name to fit the song perfectly.

  1. “Thriller” — Michael Jackson

Representative of the Halloween season — bolstered by its iconic music video — this 1983 blockbuster hit remains a staple song on every must-listen Spotify playlist today. And with BeFibre’s high-speed internet, you can stream this song with incredible audio quality that will send shivers down your spine.

  1. “Hollaback Girl” — Gwen Stefani 

A late addition to ‘Love Angel Music Baby’, Hollaback Girl almost didn’t make its place on the debut solo studio album. Buy boy, are we glad it did.

  1. “Blue Suede Shoes” — Elvis Presley 

The oldest entry on our must-add Spotify track list, this classic Rockabilly hit is one of Presley’s most signature tunes — despite failing to top the charts when it debuted in the ‘50s. But did you know this version wasn’t the original? Presley’s release was actually a tribute to friend Carl Perkins, who originally wrote and recorded the song a few years prior.

  1. “Smells Like Teen Spirit” — Nirvana 

Wow, this list is varied! But it wouldn’t be complete without a mention of this Kurt Cobain classic — an ironic commentary on teenage party culture, exploring how devoid of culture day-to-day life had become in ‘90s America.

  1.  “9 to 5” — Dolly Parton
