One reviewer pointed out that the song list does not include songs that are on the 100 albums.

Here's the albums list, for reference. http://www.indiepedia.de/index.php/100_ ... 2C_2006%29

The song list is not actually one list of 500, but rather 25 lists of 20 songs each, with a certain theme to each list. I have no idea whether or not these lists are ranked.

Re: Sean Egan's 500 songs you need to hear

Great work, Sweepstakes Ron! Thank you!

I think I will include this as an unranked list since you "have no idea whether or not these lists are ranked" or if it's just numbered. Also, the different placements of the 3 repeated songs (Alice Cooper's "School's Out" at #5 and #15, The Crystals' "Da Doo Ron Ron" at #11 and #16 and The Righteous Brothers' "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" at #11 and #15) perhaps indicate that there is no ranking. Either that or that some categories are stronger than others.

Are there any more songs that will be added to AM (that aren't already on the big spreadsheet) because of this list?

Does Mr Paul Gadd (aka Glitter) have to be added? (Though I see he's on already). Any chance of a blanket ban for certain offences?
