Metro Times - The 100 greatest Detroit songs ever! (2007)

Though the list is called the 'greatest detroit songs ever', the guidelines were expanded to include all Michigan artists :

We simply asked some Detroit music experts for their lists; some got back to us, some didn't. The guidelines were expanded to include southeastern Michigan so that Flint, Grand Rapids, Saginaw, etc., were included.

My goodness Henrik, When will you have time to add all of these lists to the site. Or do you have some sort of method that makes it pretty easy for you to do it.

Eh, not really...

But when the lists are as good as this one, I don't mind at all! And in search for number 100, I found that there were in fact also 93 bubbling unders!

Yeah I kind of thought so just curious. I thought you may have some automated system or something. And absolutely these lists are so good I wouldn't mind at all either. When you're passionate about something in this case music it shouldn't bother you at all.
