    They coulda kept this. I’m cool with ranking albums of all time. But this list just comes off like clickbait.

    Now why’d they pick a song that isn’t even in the top half of Lorde’s discography…

    Why is Gasolina in the top 50? I like the song, but there’s no way it should even be close to that ranking, or even on the list.

    These lists are not just about quality, they are about status and influence. Royals is one of the most influential pop songs of the last decade, it was one of the first pop songs that mixed minimalist production, slow tempo and a key that was not major.

    All these are qualities that have become more and more common in pop music after the release of this song, so if personally I would have preferred to see Liability in terms of quality, I understand that they chose Royal for its importance in redefining 2010s pop music.

    .

    Similar as with Royals, Gasolina gains its place by influence, Latin music of the first half of the 2000s was dominated by Pop, Rock and tropical music, it was not but thanks to the resounding success of Gasolina that Latin music has become seen dominated by urban music since then, it is the first Reggaeton song to gain recognition throughout Latin America and even in the United States.

    The constant appearance of artists like Bad Bunny on the Billboard Hot 100 charts that we see today can be traced to the success of Gasolina

    And stop putting Hey Ya as the OutKast’s best song. I can accept B.O.B but tons of songs on ATLiens and Aquemini are better than Hey Ya.

    Very true. B.O.B, International Players Anthem(I Choose You), Rosa Parks, and even a more mainstream track like Ms. Jackson as well are all better songs. Hey Ya is a great song, and it did have a lot of cultural impact, but the only reason it’s ranked higher is because it’s their most mainstream-friendly hit.

    I see, but I still wouldn’t put it in the top 50.

    Respect by Aretha Franklin should have received a Record of the Year nomination and I would have been happy with a win.
