Mountain playlist

It's the 27 March 2007 and the Daily Mail were asking Did Knut the celebrity polar bear kill Yan Yan the panda? and Postman Pat was packing his bags and setting sail for the USA as he made his TV debut.

Elsewhere in the USA, scientist at the University of Maryland were telling us how they created a healthier pizza by exploiting the baking and fermenting process of the dough.

Meanwhile in Kathmandu, the team were making lists and singing songs as they came up with the ultimate Top 20 song list of mountain songs.

The Mountain Song Top 20
Written by the Summit Team

When in Kathmandu, the Caudwell Xtreme Team came up with a list of top 20 mountain songs. These songs may not have the word mountain in the title, but did refer to mountains in the lyrics, or fitted with an Everest theme. Songs about hills were rejected. The top 20 is listed below:

  • 1. Top of the world
  • 2. Stairway to Heaven
  • 3. Climb every Mountain
  • 4. River deep, Mountain high
  • 5. She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes
  • 6. Skyscraper
  • 7. Eternal Flame
  • 8. All things bright and beautiful
  • 9. Jerusalem
  • 10. Run to the Hills (even though it includes the world hill the general feeling was that the song was too good to exclude!)
  • 11. Voodoo Child
  • 12. La Cage aux Folles
  • 13. The U2 song from the Joshua Tree
  • 14. The Mountains of Moure
  • 15. Rocky Mountain High
  • 16. Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia
  • 17. Move any Mountain
  • 18. Edelweis
  • 19. Misty Mountain Hop
  • 20. In the Hall of the Mountain King
