What Song Would YOU pick?

If a deaf person could suddenly hear, what is the first song you'd play for them? A 39 year old British women who has been deaf since birth just got cochlear implants and her friend made her a mix file. It included McCartney, Springsteen, Prince, Fleetwood Mac (sounds like she should've just let her tune to KHITS 96.3!) Anyway, the first song she chose for her no-longer-deaf friend  was "Imagine" by John Lennon. My pick would have been Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode", that's the song chosen for the 'gold disc' that was blasted into outer space in 1977 so any aliens who discovered the disc would be introduced to rock and roll. What would be your 'introductory song' for someone who 'used-to-be-deaf'?

    I would choose Don McClean's American Pie. Ifeel it is a song every one can relate to, it tells a wonderful story,and I think she would love to hear mussically.
