Pretty amazing list really, and it largely speaks to the vanilla tastes of the general public. I mean, there are some good songs, but it’s telling that while songs like “Macarena”, “You Light Up My Life” and “That’s What Friends Are For” are on the list, there’s nothing from Led Zeppelin, Queen, REM, AC/DC, Michael Jackson, Eminem or Nirvana. I also found it interesting how jarring it was when Elvis hit the scene in 1956, and then The Beatles in 1964. Big changes indeed. Oh, and what song was most popular the year you were born? Mine was “Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White” by Perez Prado. Yeah, me either.

Anyway, enjoy.
