The 100 Greatest Belgian Songs of All Time (Radio 1 aggregated chart 2006-2014)


Info: 100 op 1 - De Beste Belgen is a radio show broadcast by Belgian Radio 1 that every year asks its listeners to vote their favorite all-time songs by Belgian artists. I discovered it in 2010, when I spotified the results of the most recent survey. Now, instead of refreshing that playlist, I did something different: I looked for all the 100 op 1 yearly charts available online and I made a spreadsheet, assigning 100 points to the #1, 99 points to the #2, etc. etc. The result is a kind of an aggregated Top 100, collected in this Spotify playlist, that includes some artists internationally known (Brel, dEUS, Hooverphonic...) and many others that I guess are more local favorites. As of August 2015, the chart is based on the 2006, 2009, 2012, 2013 and 2014 charts. The show started in 2002 and if anyone knows where to find the other Top100s, I will be very happy to add the data and to update the playlist.

Pitchfork The 200 Best Songs of the 1980s (2015)


Info: "A great deal of today's music looks to the '80s for inspiration, but there are so many different ideas of what '80s as a descriptor can mean. Here we return to the source material". Pitchfork polled its staff and contributing writers for their favorite songs of the decade and it tabulated them in a Top200 chart. Complete list is available online, with a review of each song and some related tracks for further explanation. As of August 2015 twelve songs are missing from Spotify, whereof six are by Prince, who in summer 2015 removed his entire catalogue from the service.

NME 100 Tracks of the Decade 2000-2009 (2012)


Info: "The turn of the century may have begun with a glut of Toploader and Travis-shaped banality, but by 2002 a new wave of talent had changed everything. First came The Strokes and The White Stripes; The Libertines soon followed dragging a whole heap of Arcadian fantasists with them while, through the rest of the decade, more brilliant bands than you can shake a skinny jean-clad leg at followed suit. Whether you're Team Foals, Arcade Fire, Yeah Yeah Yeahs or other - here are the decade's finest offerings. "

Info: The Pitchfork 500 - Our Guide to the Greatest Songs From Punk to the Present "chronologically explores Pitchfork's 500 favorite songs from 1977-2006, constructing an alternate history of the past three decades of popular music, one that extends beyond the typical Baby Boomer-approved canon of the Clash, Prince, Public Enemy, Nirvana, Radiohead, and Outkast. From art-rock and proto-punk godfathers such as Brian Eno, Iggy Pop, and David Bowie to today's leading lights such as the Arcade Fire, the White Stripes, and Kanye West; from superstars to cult heroes; and from punk, indie, and pop to hip-hop, electronic music, and metal, we've created the ultimate playlist"

Mojo 50 Greatest Beach Boys Songs (2015)


Info: "The Beach Boys redefined the possibilities of pop music, creating harmonies and experimenting with production in ways that had never been heard before and have rarely been rivalled since. Accordingly, their catalogue is one of the richest and most labyrinthine in popular music, encompassing flat-out rock’n’rollers and golden-age pop, bittersweet ruminations, and experimental harmonic euphoria under the direction of troubled genius Brian Wilson"
