Through the steady growth of the South African economy, one of the biggest success stories of its many years of democracy is the growth of the music industry. From the numerous festivals to the success of independent labels, the flourishing of original music and the death of the cover band culture, South African music is thriving and gaining international recognition even bigger than the days of the 1900s Musicians.
A testament to that is the fact that the South African Music Awards is the biggest entertainment event on the calendar. Oppikoppi attracts 20,000 alternative rockers. In a salute to some of the South African musicians who have entertained and nurtured us with their music in one way or the other, a list has been compiled of the 100 greatest South African songs that were ever sung.
These songs are not necessarily based on sales, they are the songs that have helped to change and mould the South African culture and have become a part of our history, our daily lives and our everyday diction.

Whoever said ‘ is life’ made the most accurate statement since the human species came into existence. Music slithers into our souls, it interacts with the memories and experience of the listener to become something intensely personal.
A great song is about melody and lyric dovetailing together to become more than the sum of their parts, evoking ideas and emotions. A truly great song takes on a kind of intrinsic life of its own. The best songs of our great continent are as varied and attention-grabbing as the artists who sing them, and they’re about everything from love and sex to heartbreak and survival—and just about every topic in between.
