Music Expert Dan Kois has gone through the songs I’ve ranked at #1 on each of the 20 (!!!) lists I’ve shared so far and shared his official ranking of those songs. We had a further conversation:
Dan Kois I would enjoy seeing a Top 25 of all songs so far. I have no sense of, like, where U2 stands in relation to Throwing Muses
R Kevin Garcia Doyle So you mean looking at everything ranked so far and identifying the to 25 of everything? Hunh.
Dan Kois yeah. would it just be 14 dexy’s songs and one of everyone else?? the people need to know
Presented without almost no further discussion from me (parenthetical comments are from Dan, the footnote at the end is from me) and with links to the relevant portions of the lists.
15. Ray of Light (Madonna)
(This has made me so angry all over again)*
7. This Is What She’s Like (Dexy’s)
(my favorite of the songs I didn’t really know at all on this list)
* Presumably this is a reference to where I ranked “Cherish.” (#84)
