05. December 2004 · Comments Off on Another Rolling Stone List To Make Fun Of. · Categories: That's Entertainment!

Rolling Stone magazine came out with a second edition of their 500 greatest songs list a couple of weeks ago. And, as with any of their lists, it leaves a lot to be desired. Of course, tough calls have to be made; there’s only 500 slots. And I know I can name more songs I think should be included than those I think should be removed. But certain omissions are just puzzling. Foremost among these has to be Don McLean’s American Pie – how many months was that song at #1? Or how about The Pretenders’ Brass In Pocket, The Charlie Daniel’s Band’s devil Went Down To Georgia, i>, Yes’ Roundabout, or The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s The House At Pooh Corner? {note edit}

Oh, and a note for you whipper-snappers who might accuse me of being locked in a musical time-warp: only a couple of dozen songs on that list are from 1990 or later, and only about twice that number are from the ’80s. 🙂
