About Entertainment Lists

Post by Bruno » Sun Mar 05, 2017 12:28 pm

I don't know if it is eligible, but sometimes I get the impression that the lists are made by more than one writer.

In fact, this list is not just pop songs but all genres.

Same here, not only pop songs.

All general enough that I think they could probably fly.

They're all single-critic, but he's the "Top 40 and Pop Expert," so who knows.

Alright, what is going on here? I just noticed that the list Bruno linked to starts from the middle of the one I posted and branches out. 50 is now 1, 51 is 2, 49 is 3, 52 is 4, etc. There's no way his opinion changed that formulaically. And I think the old top 10 looks more reasonable than the new one.
