Top 100 Singles of All Time (75-51)

<< PREVIOUS

If you only like music that it’s OK to like, go read Pitchfork. 😀

I counted: my favourite tracks include 31 from the 1960s and 28 from the 1990s. Just five from the 00s and only one from the 50s made it in there.

My music taste is overwhelmingly rock (51%), though of the 31 pop tracks I picked, the “Motown” style accounted for 13 – more than any other subgenre on my list.

Here’s the next part of the countdown:

75. Your Song, Elton John

74. Lebanon, Human League

73. 7 Seconds, Neneh Cherry + Youssou N’Dour

72. World Around, Levitation

71. I Wanna Be Your Dog, Stooges

70. Gimme Shelter, The Rolling Stones

69. Vermillion, Slipknot

68. Everybody Hurts, R.E.M.

67. I Put a Spell on You, Nina Simone

66. Weeping Song, Nick Cave

65. Superstition, Stevie Wonder

64. One Step Closer, Linkin Park

63. Is This The Life?, Cardiacs

62. Soon, My Bloody Valentine

61. What You Waiting For?, Gwen Stefani

60. Son of a Preacher Man, Dusty Springfield

59. Hold On, En Vogue

58. I Eat Cannibals, Toto Coelo

57. He Ain’t Heavy, The Hollies

56. Layla, Derek and the Dominos
