Guardian (UK) 1,000 Songs Everyone Must Hear (2009)

Postby yakov99 » Tue Jan 09, 2018 5:13 am

I've noticed that the following list from Guardian is missing.

It is a theme based list and is different to Guardian (UK) - A history of modern music (2011) list which is genre based.

https://www.theguardian.com/music/musicblog/2009/mar/14/love-songs-missed

Today sees the first instalment of 1,000 Songs Everyone Must Hear, a lovingly compiled week-long series of supplements free with your copy of the Guardian and the Observer. For each day, we picked a different theme and through a process of rigorous debate (and the odd insult), our award-winning team of music critics and writers came up with the songs we think best represent that theme.


Full data is available in list format

https://www.theguardian.com/music/table/2009/mar/14/love-1000-songs-everyone-must-hear

and in spreadsheet

https://www.theguardian.com/news/datablog/2009/mar/20/1

It is not a reader list for sure :) . They used the same format as in their 1000 novels everyone must read

https://www.theguardian.com/books/2009/ ... ks-fiction

Selected by the Guardian's Review team and a panel of expert judges, this list includes only novels – no memoirs, no short stories, no long poems – from any decade and in any language. Originally published in thematic supplements – love, crime, comedy, family and self, state of the nation, science fiction and fantasy, war and travel – they appear here for the first time in a single list.

Feel we've left off a crucial book? Email to us with your nomination and an explanation in no more than 150 words at review@theguardian.com, or post your submission to The Guardian, Kings Place, 90 York Way, London N1 9GU, by 4 February.


They then published the readers suggestions to what was missing from their list separately as {...} songs we missed … but this has nothing to do with the main list, which is purely staff selected.

Hope this helps.

Of course, Martin Strong main book was used, but the genre books looks like not. For example, Pink Fairies albums have no Martin's ratings in the data sheets, but they do in his genre books. The reason for this omission is not obvious.
