Are These the 100 Greatest Songs of All Time?

Neil McCormack of The Telegraph has published what he believes to be the 100 greatest songs of all time. It’s a very subjective list, of course, but everyone likes arguing over lists, right?  I’ll give you the first ten (100-91) and you can find the rest here. I have a feeling there will be considerable disagreement over his pick for #1.

100. “Space Oddity,” David Bowie

99. “What a Wonderful World,” Louis Armstrong

98. “Your Song,” Elton John

97. “Come On Eileen,” Dexy’s Midnight Runners

96. “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,” U2

95. “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” Nirvana

94. “Single Ladies (Put Ring on It),” Beyonce

93. “Runaway,” Kanye West

92. “Help!” The Beatles

91. “Somebody to Love,” Queen

Keep going.
