I think the most they give to any artist is 2 songs on the list. Not enough of the Supremes for my taste.

Cline did re-record "Walkin' After Midnight" in 1961 with more of a pop style than the '57 country version. I suppose it's possible they are referring to the re-recording, but it does seem odd that they would choose to include it rather than making room for another great song that was originally released in the '60s.

Thanks Nassim! Great list!


I need to ask for everyones opinion on "A Love Supreme". This not actually a song title, but the whole album, which is divided into 3 parts (or 4 if you're not grouping "Part III - Pursuance / Part IV - Psalm").

Some critics lists have a specific part listed, while others have just listed "A Love Supreme". I have separated the parts on AM and given all parts credit if the entry is "A Love Supreme". However, this time the comment to this song is

"Released in 1965, John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme—led by the strength and cohesion of its title track—was certainly celestial."

Do you think they meant just "Part I - Acknowledgement"? And do you think I should keep the parts separate on AM, or group them into one song?

I think in this case, based upon that quote, it's safe to assume they're talking about "Acknowledgement." However, for all the lists that don't specify, my personal opinion would be to group them all together, since it really is (essentially) one cohesive piece. (I would consider it the same as if someone listed "Music For 18 Musicians" in a songs list.) I'll be curious to hear others' thoughts.

But what should I then do with those that specify a certain part? Do you think that they should be added to "A Love Supreme", just like the ones that don't specify a part? I don't think I want to list both "A Love Supreme" and "Part I - Acknowledgement" on AM, as there would then be an overlap of songs.

I think in this case they are referring to "Part I - Acknowledgement," which I'm sure a lot of people could erroneously think is titled "A Love Supreme," given how the lyrics near the end of the song repeats the album's title over and over.

Sorry, I wasn't very clear with my response (and, again, it's just my thoughts), but if a list just said "A Love Supreme" on a songs list, then "credit" would be given to all 3 parts equally. (I know you do have "Pursuance/Psalm" counted together on the site.) However, if it did specify the part somehow (as this list seems to do with its comment), then that part alone would get the credit. Therefore, there would still be differentiation amongst the parts. I certainly agree that I wouldn't add "A Love Supreme" as a sole entry, since many lists will specify, and I wouldn't want to credit "Resolution" and "Pursuance/Psalm" for lists that specifically mention "Acknowledgement" alone. Does this make more sense?

That makes sense. Assuming this entry here is just part 1, then the entries that don't specify a part are
Rolling Stone (Germany) - Anniversary Special: 222 Songs (2013)
Blender (USA) - The 1001 Greatest Songs to Download Right Now! (2003)

About the German RS special, Federico said There were no details about "A Love Supreme".
In the Blender list, "A Love Supreme" was chosen by Chris Robinson from The Black Crowes, with the comment:
"Spirituality has rarely been celebrated quite so briljant as in this jazz standard"
What do you say about this case? All parts or part 1?

I think both of these would be great examples of giving all parts equal credit. It's unlikely that either the RS authors or Chris Robinson would only be considering Part 1 if they didn't specify it as such. Obviously, I can't say for sure, but from my own experience, people usually mean the entire work when they say "A Love Supreme" and typically refer to Part 1 as simply "Acknowledgement."
