The Essentials?

CBC radio has compiled the 5 most essential songs from each decade since 1900.

Click here and let me know if you agree.

You Said

Not at all. 2 of 5 I would agree with for most decades.

I'm of a mind that this most recent fad of publishing lists is more for the sake of discussion than anything else.

I like most of this list, honestly (Ray Charles in the 50s...outstanding!). But to not include Born to Run in the 70s? Blasphemy!!

That was awful. The 60's were horrible choices. The Beatles track, however beautiful is hardly a good representation of their music.

Where was David Bowie? Where was..~cough cough~ Nights In White Satin...(just a personal preference)

What about 867-5309 or Come on Eileen? No 80's list is complete without at least one of those.

What? No YMCA? No New York New York? No Mickey?

Smells like Teen Spirit? That song doesen't even make sense! Well then again, maybe that does represent the 90's...

Says: Mel at September 9, 2004 10:09 AM

Smells Like Teen Spirit and Nirvana really represent the grunge movement. It's difficult for me to think of Nirvana and grunge as a "retro" thing, but back in the day it was all the rage.

I do go back to my original thought on lists -- they're squarely in the eye of the beholder and have little to know cultural value.

AFI's movie list comes close, though. I will concede that.
