220px-Santana_-_Santana_(1969)#17– Santana – “Evil Ways” – (1969)

Santana had our #1 song of the 1990s. And it was an even bigger hit in the 2000s. That’s some serious staying power. This was actually a cover, having originally been recorded in 1967 by Willie Bobo. It was the band’s first top 40 hit, reaching #9. With that wailing organ, it’s one of the best examples of jazz-infused latin rock.
