image from twimg.com

In 1996, Billboard magazine lanched the adult album alternative (AAA) chart. The radio format is a spinoff of the album-oriented radio format rooted in music from the ‘60s and ‘70s. AAA includes some of that genre’s most noted acts (Eric Clapton, John Mellencamp, Tom Petty, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen), but expands to include a variety of genres generally broader than most other radio formats, encompassing alternative rock, alt country, folk, jazz, and blues.

The Top 1000 Songs of All Time

Originally posted 1/13/14. Updated 11/28/2017.

This is the granddaddy of song lists. It has been created by compiling hundreds of best-of song lists into this one definitive list. Other song lists have built-in biases, depending on the publication or institution behind the list. Even these lists that solicit public vote will be subjective as they are gathering votes from their own audience!

The focus in crafting this list was to weed out the individual idiosyncrasies of those individual lists. Average enough lists together and the subjectivity is slowly erased. To this end, every attempt was made to gather lists representative of every possible genre and era. Chart figures, airplay, and sales data were also figured into the equation. The end result is that everyone should find something they like on this list. Of course, there will also be plenty to feed the haters. That’s fine. The goal is to represent as much different music as possible and truly capture those songs that best symbolize the history of recorded music.

Songs are listed in chronological order; dates in parentheses are for the song’s first chart appearance unless noted otherwise.
