Stereogum Artists Lists

Post by StevieFan13 » Thu Feb 02, 2017 6:08 pm

Might need some help transcribing these. I don't know if these have been brought up before, but Stereogum has a TON of "best songs by ____" lists, so I'll try to copy as many as I can. AXS also has lists like that, but that's for another time. They're single-critic, for the most part, but does it count as a representative for the whole website? I'll start with one, and if there's an answer on their eligibility, I'll post some more.

The 10 Best Marvin Gaye Songs
(http://www.stereogum.com/1788994/the-10 ... est-songs/)
10. Marvin Gaye - "You're All I Need to Get By" (1968)
9. Marvin Gaye - "I Want You" (1976)
8. Marvin Gaye - "Is That Enough?" (1978)
7. Marvin Gaye - "That's the Way Love Is" (1969)
6. Marvin Gaye - "Distant Lover" (1973)
5. Marvin Gaye - "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)" (1965)
4. Marvin Gaye - "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)" (1971)
3. Marvin Gaye - "Ain't That Peculiar" (1966)
2. Marvin Gaye - "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" (1968) - cuz lord knows that song needs a boost.
1. Marvin Gaye - "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)" (1971)

Not eligible. There's a requirement of at least 30 songs for lists by artists. They also need to be by multiple writers.

Got it. I'll see if I can dig some of those up.
