Find Me On:
To join a choir of others, “Days in the Wake” just seems to be way to low on this, “I Send My Love” is still one of the all-time great Oldham tracks.
It doesn’t so much bother me that “Nothing Ever Happened” isn’t on here at all (a band’s “biggest” or most well-known song has been left off these lists before), but that there’s not even a b.s. reason given as to why it didn’t make the cut.
Leans a little too heavily on “I’m Wide Awake,” would’ve loved to have seen “It’s Cool, We Can Still Be Friends.”
Possibility of seeing K.R.I.T. on here next week?
I don’t think Tom is officially forgetting those releases, they just weren’t full-length LP releases.
If Gucci keeps this pace up, can we expect a 2013 Gucci Mane mixtapes from worst to best?
This list seriously overprivileges “Life After Death.” I can understand leave off “Juicy” if you’re outright making a point to keep the hits off there, but somehow “Big Poppa” still made it???
Number 1 Bjork song in my book: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=no_G6Qyo04k
Would’ve loved to have seen “I Have Forgiven Jesus” on here, that being said this is a solid list.
So this list would have us believe “Ms. Jackson” isn’t a top 10 OutKast track. Anybody really believe that?
This is what happens when you’re balling on a budget.
I love that there’s a joke about Stereogumming (agreed upon verb) up a Pink Floyd list, and that’s precisely what happens here. If anything “Soft Bulletin” deserves to be number one not because of critical or commercial success, but because it fully delivered on the promises of “Clouds Taste Metallic” and “Transmissions”
That DOOMStarks would also be in such small font has to be a dead giveaway.
You can complain about the order all you want (Queen is Dead not number 1?) but they told us they were including the comps in the article, so where’s the beef?
Still looking for that Brian Scalabrine mixtape.
Any electronica love for Sally Shapiro’s “Anorak Christmas” or Lindstrom’s “Little Drummer Boy” would also be appreciated.
You’re the only one.
Liking the Mudhoney/Nirvana analogy, really disappointed Reese, Durk, or maybe even Chief Keef didn’t make an appearance on this mixtape though.

Not doubting the greatness of that song in the least, just saying if you take most of the parameters for “best song” like: chart success, critical acclaim, re-playablility, impact, then songs like “Runaway” and “Pyramids” should win out by a long shot.
To me, then picking “Oblivion” over “Pyramids,” is like in 2010 when “Round & Round” got the number 1 spot over “Runaway.” All songs I love, but five years from now which two are you more likely to remember?
No one gonna respond to those end questions? Best song, still hard to argue against “Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang.” And it’s prolly next to impossible to not find yourself chanting along to “Dre Day” at some point.
Just so I have it right, Madlib’s production on “Madvillainy” was “too perfect?”
I know Grant Hart was at least spoken of, but this list really should be “How Can We Discredit Grant Hart?”
Also, based on that Sgt. Pepper’s statement, I have to wonder what the Top 5 Beatles Records would be. Can we get a list of this and launch another “controversy?”
