Some great songs here, but 1989 getting as many songs as the entire 21st century is a little ridiculous. And no songs since 2013.

Sin also did a 5 Best Videos of the Last 35 years list. That one was credited to Spin Staff, unlike the songs list, which has a single writer. She does write "we" in the intro, though, for what it's worth.
