[in a Bruno Brookes voice] At 40 it’s Pavement with Gold Soundz dropping down all the way down from number 1 in this year’s chart

Wonder if they mean ‘singles’ as opposed to just ‘songs’ as some of the tracks in the list are nowhere near the best by some of the artists imo.

Yeah I know the whole things subjective clickbait and no one ever agrees, but here I am.

the idea of ranking 250 of anything annoys me

Too close to call, both excellent.

if the aim was to list 250 songs that aren’t as good as holy wars… the punishment due then they’ve nailed it

Aye, bet everyone just skips to the top 25.

Also, I know they are trying to be all things to all people these days, but without any particular slant or character to the list it just reads like a big long vague list of popular songs that were released across the decade.

Will be interesting to see what the biggest faller is from the last list. Maybe NMH? Can’t see them in there and I think Holland, 1945 was top ten last time.

Maybe a bit fast and loose with the word ‘interesting’ there.

Think the only thing this really shows is how stark the change in Pitchfork’s editorial direction has been.

will get to the content once i finished browsing, but goddamn having this as one long scrolling list is so much worse than what they used to do with different pages for each section of the list. Would be easy to check the end then the start that way, now it’s so long to get between those parts! blah bad design
