It's strange that YouTube is the easiest place to find most songs on the internet. As a result, I often provide links to songs on YouTube, lacking other good alternatives. I have also, myself, uploaded a number of videos to YouTube with photos of records. I may find YouTube aesthetically displeasing, but I'm a pragmatist.
In an ideal world, with more music for listening and fewer videos for watching, I think I would still appreciate YouTube's potential for countdowns. I've always loved countdowns. They are not simply lists, but lists with drama and suspense. Just this morning, I enjoyed this 8 minute YouTube video counting down the top 30 rock songs of the 1960s.
I think I'll hold my commentary on it back for a little while in case any readers wish to enjoy the suspense of the countdown themselves. I will say that almost all of the songs in the top 30 are ones I will be seriously considering for my own top 300 or top 500 once I get up the energy and gumption to tackle the 60s, as I have already done with the 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s.
