3. Pop Standard Definitions
This is a list from foreign/international songwriters/composers of over 100 Pop Standards in America from across the Globe. Since the advent of Rock 'n' Roll the idea of new Pop Standards has generally been dismissed.  It can be clearly argued there have been new Pop Standards written and performed since the mid fifties. This is the Great American Songbook of International Pop Standards in the Electrofied Era. To Identify a Foreign Pop Standard there needs to be a definition:

A. Definition of Foreign Pop Standard -- Music composed by foreign songwriters which became and remained popular in America.  It is music written and recorded since the invention of the phonograph, but must notably from the advent of World War I to the mid 1950's which have seen recurring popularity.  The Golden Age of foreign Pop Standards are most associated by stage, screen, and modified traditional and classical compositions

B. Electrofied Era Foreign Pop Standard -- Music composed by foreign songwriters with enduring popularity that is not clearly defined or solely associated with other genres, and with less emphasis on the songwriter, national traditions, Classical compositions and more on the performer.  The post mid 50's Pop Standard follows in the traditions (songs from stage, screen and television)  and style of the Pop Standards of the first half of the 20th. century, but is enriched by synthesizers, electric guitars and other electric instruments and enhanced by electronics in the modern recording studio.

Electrofied and Pop Standards -- The word "Electrofied" has been coined to point out more than just electricity has been added to modern music and recording studios. It also is set in place to help differentiate the newer Pop Standard from the pre-1940 era Pop Standards.

7. Criteria, Formulary & About The List
Criteria for making the list.
1. The song must be at least 50% composed by a non-American, a foreign national.
2. The song must have maintained a residual popularity.
3. The song must have been composed and first recorded no less than 20 (twenty) years ago.
4. Songs were not disqualified due to musical origins thus there are songs from all the continents and with a wide range of music genres as the roots of their origins.

Some songs such as "My Way" (based on a French song) are not included because more that the lyrics were changed to create the song making them over 50% American.

Formulary for ranking within the list.
A. - Recording artists were broken down into four groups
     1. Mega Stars (Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Bing Crosby, Elton John, Mariah Carey and others)
     2, Super Stars (Britney Spears, Kenny Rogers, The Beach Boys, Cher, The Ventures, Rod Stewart, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and others)
     3. Stars of Importance (Andy Williams, The Lettermen, Sarah Vaughn, Harry Connick Jr., Johnny Mathis, Floyd Cramer and others)
     4. Lesser artists
The first three groups were given points with group one receiving higher points and so on down in descending order. Group four were not given points but were to be used in the event of a tie.

B. - Length of popularity and recent recordings were also factored into the equation.

About The List
In creating this list it was fully expected to see the song "Yesterday" be firmly in the number one slot. The research found more than a half dozen songs that claimed to be the most recorded song in history. Of course, "Yesterday" was one of those songs. It was expected "Candle In The Wind" to be firmly in the Top Ten. "Candle" was the single biggest selling single in the history of recorded music except for Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" which continues to sell well annually. "Candle" is somewhat handicapped like so many Beatles and Elvis Presley songs in that artists shy a way from recording it because it is so associated with the "Mega Star". The James Bond Theme is in the Top Ten living up to expectations, but just barely.  For now the formulary stands, but like Billboard the formula for chart ranking could be tweaked. Why the formulary as it stands was put in place was reasoning the bigger stars sell more music and their material stays in print longer thus the songs reach a larger audience.  It also stands to reason if The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Elton John and Madonna all record the song then it will reach an even bigger audience than if just the Beatles recorded it. This adversely impacted "Candle's" ranking since Elton John was the only Super Star or Mega Star to record it.  
The magnitude of France's impact on the American music scene was something of a surprise.  The country claimed the top spot and numerous others.
One song of note is "Apache" with Jorgen Ingmann, The Ventures and The Sugarhill Gang all having substantial success with the tune. Some will question whether it belongs on the list since it does fit nicely into the Surf Rock genre and was performed as a Rap/Hip Hop song. It has however been performed by large orchestras. The song itself is crudely based on stereotyped Native American music.  The point is the song crosses musical genres and does not have a set boundary, thus it was included. The songs popularity rests on the technology of the Electrofied Era.
