If you think my lists are too short...
My decade lists for the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s range from 300 to 500 songs. Somebody who made a list at rateyourmusic.com made a list that currently stands at 6,612 songs. My hat is off to him not only for ranking so many songs, but also for getting it all posted with links on rateyourmusic. He's also made it sortable by artists, which allows for a different way to browse if you're looking for how your favorite bands rank. I saw the sortable list first and was initially alarmed to think that somebody ranked 6612 songs and put A-Ha's "Take on Me" first, but A-Ha is just first in alphabetical order and "Take On Me" is the 3,086th best song, which really sounds just about right. I bet I could think of about 3,000 better songs than "Take On Me", but probably not a lot more than that.
