Re: "Acclaimed" Wedding Songs

When I (hopefully) get married, I want it to be a funky wedding. First dance choice would probably be Bruno Mars' "Treasure."

Re: Ranking Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees

Your personal ratings? Because as much as I love Yes, I don't know if I'd call them more deserving of induction than the Beatles.

Also, technically Carole King got in as a songwriter (alongside Gerry Goffin).

Re: The Rap Yearbook by Shea Serrano

It was a Spotify playlist with the collected songs. What made it confusing was that there were also songs that were thematically similar, but not the exact rebuttals. So I sort of had to guess which of the two were the right ones for some of them. I'm just glad Ron gave the precise ones.

I just like how this list is so varied. Could use more non-English-language songs (like the 1001 Songs book), but just as a fountain of information for a music nerd like me, it does the job.
No Biggie, 2pac, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, or Billy Joel, though. Bummer.

Impressed that "Get Lucky" is still just barely missing the top 50 (already the most critically-respected song of the decade - I'd have initially pinned it on "Rolling in the Deep" or "Ni**as in Paris"). And I'm glad the Smiths still have songs in the top 50.
