<STRONG>So, yeah, I would like to know what you think is the best tune of all time, and to make sure that you vote for the song and not for the singer you should at least know of 3 versions by different artists that you all like. Or is that too complicated?
Complicated, no. Asinine, yes.
You generally make an assumption nothing good has come out in the last 10 years becuase other artists haven’t had sufficient time to record cover versions. The only music written in the last 3 years that has 3 seperate versions is pop… so there you go, we must all vote for pop.
Did you ever stop to consider people might actually like Smells Like Teen Spirit? I mean, I don’t think it’s the best song of the 90’s but prolly top 10. But no, no, no, there aren’t 3 covers of it I know so therefore it can’t possibly be good.
If the increase in popularity of teeny bop, date rap rock, and rock/rap has taught us anything, it’s that [most] people will generally like whatever they’re told to like by the media. That’s why polls come out the way they so often do. Unfortunately, that doesn’t make what’s popular bad.
If you are actually upset Stairway to Heaven, SLTS, and Hotel California were on the list, you probably need some "anti-indie elitest" pills cause most everyone would agree they’re fine songs.
3 covers or not.
