Re: I see this list and I feel
As someone who read Rolling Stone for a spell when I was an early teenager, I think these lists are valuable for people who are just getting into older music. Like, if you've never heard any music from before 2010, these 20 songs (and probably the other 480) wouldn't be a bad starting point.
But yeah, I would much rather read a list of one person's favorite songs than one come up by committee. Or I'd enjoy reading a list of songs for which only one contributor voted (if there was a voting process associated with this).
