Not much qualms with the number one, however in my opinion songs from Heathen, The Next Day and Blackstar are too low, even though I agree with UCR that for those albums the sum works better than the parts.

I'm not a fan of this list. The 2013-2015 singles are way too low. It's as if the #56-61 group is put there until the staff have decided how much they like these songs.

This is specifically for the singles, so "Ziggy Stardust" is for a live version, and the text implies that it would be higher if it was the album version. Same with "Station to Station" which is a shortened version (how dare they!).
