Sonic Reducers | The Fortunate 500

The 500 best songs of all time? We have something to say about that.


Quick: What are your 500 favourite songs? Don’t know? No problem; Rolling Stone has you sorted with their newly updated 500 Best Songs Of All Time list.

It’s a revamped version of the list first published in 2004, with more than 250 new songs picked by a slew of new judges — which seems to be apparent in some of the very timely selections that now make up the Top 10. That should give music fans plenty to talk about. It certainly gives Eric Alper and I enough to dig into for today’s Sonic Reducers episode. Listen in as we check out the list, talk about how times and context change our relationship with art, and question some of the odder inclusions and exclusions. Sonic Reducers. One topic. Two music nerds. Five minutes. Everything you need to know.
