let me explain everything that is wrong with this.
first of all, the songs are ethier boring pop or rock hits that will be forgotten in 20-30 years, or good songs... that are cliche on these lists anyway. the top spots go to the songs that pander to the lowest common denomiator the most, which is why the list breaks down into a list of random micheal jackson songs after place 50. thens theres artists like bowie. bowie is a legend, and his cat people makes 22. but, bowie has far better songs, such as heroes, life on mars, space oddity, starman, moonage daydream, changes, rebel rebel, sound and vision, or even blackstar off his new album. and yet cat people makes the cut, becuase its the most popular. i could go on and on, but the probelm is theres no imput from anyone who knows anything about music, and nothing in the way of dissucion and critism of placements
