40 ans : mon Top 40 International Songs

Nous y voici, le dernier classement spécial de votre serviteur, concernant les "chansons internationales" cette fois : beaucoup de classiques et de compositions assez anciennes finalement, qui ont toutes pour moi les qualités d'une production imparable mais surtout d'une mélodie "qui tue" ! J'ai rajouté pas mal de petits "oscars" pour certaines d'entre elles, qui expliquent aussi pourquoi elles sont là.
Classement sans ordre particulier :
Year Of The Cat (Al Stewart)
The Fool On The Hill (The Beatles)
Across The Universe (The Beatles)
