The Hoff makes 'world-changing songs' top 10

Filed under:


He might be an affable figure of fun here in the UK but in Germany, David Hasselhoff is a world-changer.

The Hoff has made Time Out's top 10 most "world-changing" songs of all time. No, not for Jump In My Car, but for German hit Looking For Freedom.
It became something of an anthem during the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, and David famously rocked a joyous New Year crowd standing atop the wall itself.

The list, compiled by musicians, historians and enthusiasts, sought to find 100 songs that had a significant impact on world events.

While the Hoff's hit made it to the number 10 spot, it was Public Enemy's Fight The Power that topped the list.

In second place was record-breaking Band Aid song Do They Know Its Christmas?, while John Lennon's Imagine, Stevie Wonder's Happy Birthday and the Sex Pistols' God Save The Queen also made the top 10.

What do you think - does The Hoff deserve to make the top 10? Leave a comment below...
