100 songs Long Islanders should know

As we prepare for the upcoming Long Island Music Hall of Fame Induction Gala on Oct. 18 at the Paramount in Huntington, we wanted to pull together a list of the songs that should be a source of civic pride.
These are the 100 songs every Long Islander should know -- songs by people from here, about here, and written and recorded here, that also have changed the world of music. And by here, we go along with the LIHoF's definition of Long Island: Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk.


85. "Pull Me Under," Dream Theater

The Long Island Music Hall of Famers named their “best of” collection “Greatest Hit ( .. . And 21 Other Pretty Cool Songs).” “Pull Me Under,” a Top 10 rock hit from 1992, is their “greatest hit,” a relatively straightforward aggressive track for the progressive rockers from Kings Park.
