Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs of All Time (2010 version)


In May 2010 Rolling Stone revised its list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, originally published in 2004. Introduced by an essay written by Jay Z, the new chart included a total of twenty-five new songs, all from the 2000s, except Juicy by the Notorious B.I.G. The only new entry in the Top 100 was Gnarls Barkley's Crazy (#100), while most of the new songs were added in the second half of the chart. The following playlist is based on that 2010 version (if you're looking for the 2004 version, you can find it here) and it has been updated on May 2015. The full list of songs is below the playlist, with 2010 additions in bold. As of May 2015, all 2010 new additions are available on Spotify, while twenty-nine songs are still missing from the service (twenty-three by The Beatles, two by AC/DC, one each by Left Banke, Bob Dylan, George Harrison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts).

Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs of All Time (2004 version)


The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time was the cover story of a special issue of American magazine Rolling Stone, published on December 2004. The list was ranked with the help of 171 artists, producers, industry executives and journalists, and it is dominated by music from the 1960s/1970s, with just two songs from the 1990s in the Top 50 (Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit and U2's One). The Top 500 includes songs by 240 acts: The Beatles are the most-represented act with 23 songs, followed by The Rolling Stones (14), Bob Dylan (12), Elvis Presley (11), The Beach Boys (7), Jimi Hendrix (7), Chuck Berry (6), James Brown (6), Led Zeppelin (6), Prince (6), Sly and the Family Stone (6) and U2 (6). The list has been revisited by Rolling Stone in 2011, with 25 new songs added. The following Spotify playlist is based on the original 2004 version and it has been updated in April 2015: 29 songs are missing, including all The Beatles tunes. Full list is below the playlist.

Metacritic 75 (february 2015)



Metacritic 75 is a playlist collecting best reviewed 2015 albums according to critic reviews on Metacritic (a website that aggregates reviews of paper and Web magazines, averaging a numerical score). In it I include albums answering two requirements: a score of 75 (or more) based on at least 20 critic reviews. I update it on monthly basis and I keep two playlists alive: with full albums and three songs each albums.

In this second 2015 episode you can find new albums by Natalie Prass, Father John Misty, Drake, Torche and Dan Deacon. Three big albums not available yet on Spotify: Bjork's Vulnicura, Bob Dylan's Shadows in the Night and Jessica Pratt's On Your Own Love Again.

Enjoy!
