THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
COMING NEXT THE TOP 10.
I would just like to say thank you to everyone who has taken time to read, like, share or comment on any of the songs I have written about over the past 1000 days. I can’t believe how quickly the time has gone, it doesn’t seem like two minutes since I set out on this labour of love back on June 29th, 2017 and to think in just ten days time on March 24th the list will be complete.
There have been many lists of ‘best songs’ submitted by many organisations over the years, but I think where mine differs is in its diversity. I have striven to include every genre of music from the 1920’s onward, and include all genres of music from the ‘Crooners’ of the pre Rock ‘N’ Roll era, all the way through to the ‘Grime’ artists of the early 21st Century.
The one thing that becomes evident when studying popular music is that the majority of artists have written their best material by the age of 30, it appears that even the greatest musicians struggle to keep the standard up as they head towards middle age.
Pop Music certainly took off with the advent of Rock ‘N’ Roll, there is no comparison between listening to a song from 1957 and then hearing what was being recorded in just ten short years later, but it appears that Pop Music’s most productive period according to my countdown is the years from 1967-1969 with more songs appearing in this list from that time than any other. I would also suggest that the years of the late 1970’s and early 1980’s were also a boom period.
We are so lucky to have such wonderful music in abundance, any of the top 10 are worthy of being the best song ever. I hope you take time to listen to my choices over the next ten days and please feel free to comment.
Music was my first love and it will be my last
Music of the future and music of the past
To live without my music would be impossible to do
In this world of troubles
My music pulls me through.
