Interesting list as usual. Although, I am a little worried when a list claims to be representative "of all time", but appears to have forgotten that plenty of great songs were recorded before 1960, and in languages other than English.

Anyone else confused slightly by the explanation of how it was compiled?

"Voted for by NME journalists past and present, each individual was asked to submit a list of their top 50 albums. These were combined with lists of NME's Top 50 tracks of the year to create the definitive list of 500 essential songs published in the magazine."

"Imagine" is incredibly low :? And I don't know how worthy "Last Nite" is of being called the fifth greatest song of all time.

It makes no sense. To me it seems incredible that NME do these things so disastrous.

And I agree with JimmyJazz: "I am a little worried when a list claims to be representative "of all time", but appears to have forgotten that plenty of great songs were recorded before 1960, and in languages other than English."

Stop these lists are not consistent with its title (greatest songs of all time). Not eligible! :music-rockon:

Which is the biggest problem? That they asked people to submit a list of their favorite albums, or that they combine the info with their tracks of the year lists? I think the first is a typing error, they must have asked for songs list, huh? And the second thing is not so bad for the list itself I think, however it is not ideal that with the inclusion of this list the EOY lists are being counted twice-ish. I can live with that though.

Or do you think they only asked people about their favorite albums, and then used the info for both the albums and songs lists?

I sent an email to the online editor, so hopefully we can get a reply.

What would an albums lists have to do with a list of greatest songs? And how do NME top 50 tracks of the year come into play? I.e. a song like "Material Girl" didn't appear on any NME year-end list (and the same goers for others, I'm sure).

Yep- was a typo. NME journalists were asked to submit their listof top 50 songs. So, that's straightened out, at least.

NME's lists are interesting at times- i.e. with the decades lists, we had instances of songs that were ranked lower than others, that placed on NME's lifetime list, when those ranked higher on the decade list didn't place. If that all makes sense. :mrgreen:

Postby JimmyJazz » Thu Feb 06, 2014 10:11 pm

I have to really say, I'm not nearly as impressed by this list as I was with the albums one, not regarding my few complaints with that one. Their hard on for Oasis is particularly confusing to me, specifically because I always thought they were a little too mainstream for NME's tastes (in this regard, the stellar performances of Blur and Pulp aren't nearly as surprising). Also, I love the Strokes, but mostly for Is This It and the songs off that seminal album of the 21st century. I just really don't think that they are Top 10 material for either an albums or songs list, although that's just me. Hurricane as Dylan's highest song...? Um, ok... :whistle:

On the other hand, the very high ranking of Gimme Shelter is surely enough to guarantee it a spot in the Top 100 (finally!!!)

PS: That one article you linked to JR is filled with numerous errors btw, as he claims that Buddy Holly's Rave On is from 1953 (lol!) and also that it is the oldest song on the list, even though Billie Holiday's Strange Fruit from 1939 is also on the list.

Actually, now that I think about it, both of these lists are basically poll summaries, much like the RS top 500s, so, you can't really criticize such a list, since it is simply summarizing the most popular works among a group of professional critics. Although, the combining with NME's songs from each year seems like a simplistic way of trying to keep recent stuff in their so they can sell magazines, kinda like RS throwing in their favorite songs of the 21st century randomly into the mix of their 500.

These journalists just can't keep the facts straight, JJ. :P

The digital issue is available for the full NME list- but, I guess it's more fun to post it little by little.

While this list certainly has its aesthetic (anyone need more Blur/Pulp/Oasis/Suede/Arctic Monkeys??), I think it does far more good than bad for the AM all time list. I like how NME isn't afraid to put a bunch of songs from the last 25 years side-by-side with the 60s and 70s classics, which extends all the way to the top 25 (which are all very good songs, no complaints here). Also, "Outdoor Miner" makes an appearance!

Oops! Completely skipped the first two and thought Paperback Writer was 50/50 for real with John.

Edit: Okay, it's like 80/20, which is enough for me.

Edit: What numbers are they? Located Live and Let Die only one time and then forgot, havent' located Band on the Run :whistle: :D

Edit: Okay now located. 286 and 461! That was hard for me.

NME has 26-30 and 51-75 available for free viewing here:

No Madonna in there, either, so that leaves just 145 unknown positions. If MG is the only one... :mrgreen:

Looks like there is a second Madonna entry and it's no surprise that it's "Like a Prayer." :)

The full list is on Spotify, sans songs that are not on there. Between the revealed top 25, No.s 26-30, 51-75 and 201-500, I count 12 tracks unaccounted for, based on what's on Spotify.

This list turned out pretty good for McCartney! Eleanor Rigby is my fav of his, so really happy it's 11th, and Blackbird I think is a great choice to put it that high! Temporary Secretary W.T.F :mrgreen:

Edit: Even though actually all the Beatles added something to Eleanor Rigby, and obv Martin's production is a big part why the song is so great.

The Beatles' final count isn't yet known (it has 10 accounted for thus far)- but, Blue and David Bowie comprise 5% of the list, just between the two of them (13 Blur/12 Bowie). :o

Oasis has 10.

I enjoy the majority of the songs on the list, and some of the rankings regarding various artists and their songs are quite provocative, but I still am firm in believing that earlier pre 60s songs and non-English language tracks are being discriminated against. For this reason, I honestly like the last songs poll list that AMF did in 2012 better than either this or the RS 500. While some may think that this list is better than RS's, I don't really. It strikes me actually as being the same mold, just with the decade biases being reversed.

JJ- it's not really surprising that non-English songs don't get much consideration for lists originating from (predominantly) English-speaking countries.

As for pre-1960s songs- well, maybe pre-1955, as Elvis tracks from the 50s, and some others, often receive good notices. It is a treat when there are pre-1955 tracks that appear.

So clearly Oasis is one of the top 5 bands of all time, right? :roll:

I still think the list is decent overall, though, and does a good job of bringing some more recent songs into the "canon."

Thanks for compiling, JJ.

Looking at the 5+ acts, Kate Bush has three entries. Jay-Z actually has six, with his featuring on '"Crazy in Love."

Like with music charts, these featurings are becoming a bit much. :mrgreen:

Corrected.
And thanks.

Strange that Blur is the second band with more songs. Damon Albarn should be happy to have the same number of songs in the list than the Beatles. Are we slowly coming to that time when the Beatles are no longer the biggest? That time when the "Can you imagine how the Beatles will be seen in 50, 100, 200 years?" becomes "Yeah. They were great in the last century!"?

Oops- yes, I meant Blanco. :D

The Beatles usually do dominate on stuff like this; also, keep in mind that NME is a British publication, so Brits fare better overall here than they would on most U.S. lists.

It's not enough that the Beatles still have the most songs on a list heavily slanted toward newer music? Now the problem is that their lead isn't big enough??

I did enjoy this list. Like I said, if you take its "all time" label with a grain of salt and think of it as the best songs within NME's coverage universe, plus some pop hits through the years, I think the list makes a lot of sense. (though, as an aside, I'm still not sure how a magazine so focused on British bands is essentially unaware of the Kinks outside of their most famous hit songs, while throwing in numerous deep tracks by the bands they influenced years later).

All I'm saying is that beyond the regional focus of the publication, and even when the Beatles remain as the band with the highest number of songs in a list like this, contemporary bands begin to reach them. I mean, the difference between the songs of the Beatles and other bands that are critically acclaimed begins to make more and more narrow. By this I do not mean that the Beatles are seen as worse as time passes, nor do I want to say that bands are better now. Nor do I say it's a problem, because I do not even saying it's good or bad. It's just the product of reflective thinking: A list of 50, 100 or 500 "best" songs that attempt to cover the history of recorded music will have less Beatles songs as more time passes, and I think this list is a very good example.

And yeah, NME is inclined to the latest music. But even this will happen to Rolling Stone. If the Beatles lasted roughly a decade, and this decade will have less space on the lists as time goes on, and if we add that there were other great bands at the same time, well... ;)

Thanks everyone for your work on this!

Of the 16 artists with 5 songs or more, 13 are British. That's a bit too much regional focus IMO...

it also look like another big list where females are underrepresented.

Henrik, so you still plan to weigh female entries differently with the next update?
