The Magazine's editors picked The Beatles' Blackbird as their favourite and they said of the poll results "We chose Blackbird because it’s been covered for years by multiple artists. It was also recently featured on the TV show, Glee. It’s a beautiful, classic song from The Beatles, and we love that it features a bird singing throughout. We weren’t surprised at "Fly Like an Eagle,” either. This song has been popular for generations, and after all, it is about our national bird icon—the eagle."
