    Queen Taylor continues to win! All Too Well a non single making it into the 100 greatest songs of all time is legendary!

    Congratulations to Grammy Winners: Jazmine Sullivan, Doja Cat, SZA and Olivia Rodrigo!

    A tip of the cap from me for giving Aretha the top spot. One of the most iconic songs ever and the best to ever hit #1 on the charts.

    It’s a modern classic and an iconic song, but there’s no way it should be ahead of untouchable masterpieces like those. Dock of the Bay should also be far ahead of it.

    Only complaint: 04. Bob Dylan, ‘Like a Rolling Stone’ 1965……..I don’t get the appeal of this song at all

    A Change Is Gonna Come should have been number 1.

     

    respect to Public Enemy as number 2. Iconic song from an ICONIC group.

     

     

    Nas- The World Is Yours should have been somewhere in the top 100

    As a BTS stan, I’m happy dynamite was included but I wish that it was not BTS’ entry. Songs like fake love, spring day, tear, black swan, or even blood sweat & tears would have been better choices. But they aren’t in English and this publication only cares about western/english music. I haven’t scrubbed through the entire list yet but from what I’ve seen less than 5 songs are in a language other than English, and none are in a language other than English or Spanish.

    I agree with the sentiment that the list is a joke, or at best lazy.
