The 100 Greatest Songs of the Century – So Far

uh, y'know, the sounds that sound good together... sometimes... and sometimes sounds like the disgusting "squish squish" sound Slicker's mom makes whenever she walks

The 100 Greatest Songs of the Century – So Far

Postby Ran » Fri Aug 10, 2018 12:16 pm

Not sure if 21st century music sucks, Rolling Stone magazine sucks, or if I'm that out of touch with reality. "Call me maybe" made the list, but nothing from Foo Fighters (and very few other rock bands) did.

I knew 41/100 based on just the song titles. I'd probably recognize more if I heard them.
I can't recall a single one I thought was good.

I am surprised Foo Fighters weren't on there though.

There are some bombs on that list. Tell me the Kelly Clarkson track still doesn't make you sing along - loud - every time you hear it in the car alone. :D

Although I don't like it, I think Call Me Maybe could be the best pop song since 2000.
Its sweet and catchy and will stick on your head for days and sounds like it could have been from the 80s or 90s.

Were those in random order? Some of the ones in the top ten suck ass.
But there were a few catchy ones on there. I only looked at the top 50.

Fun fact. “Mr. Brighteyes” hasn’t left the charts in the UK since it debuted like 15 years ago.
