The latest issue of Rolling Stone arrived. It keeps coming, though I don't remember having paid for it, and think I'm the only one here with the vision to read the tiny print.
I was intrigued when the cover promised a list of "THE GREATEST SONGS OF ALL TIME." Certainly Rolling Stone would have compiled this list before, then just linked to it after that. However, it appears the list varies with time, and turmoil, and tastes.
I expected that there would be a number of songs I didn't know, given that I ignored all music during the eighties and nineties and then became spectrum-level-laser-focused on Barenaked Ladies. Turns out, not only were there numerous songs I didn't have on my playlist, there are songs I should know but I have never heard. What really astonished me was I have never heard A Change is Gonna Come (Sam Cooke) or A Case of You (Joni Mitchell).
I have added both of them to my Favorites playlist, not because they are favorites (how can it be a favorite after one try), but I feel my never-ending subscription to Rolling Stone should be used for something.
