This is very nit-picky, but “Chutes Too Narrow” came out in October of 2003. I just remember being so excited my senior year of high school fall of 2003 to find “Chutes Too Narrow” among the $9.99 black Friday Circuit City sale. And soon became obsessed.

I swear by “Childhood” from their first album. Those arpeggios that come in halfway through the song? Gives me chills every time.

The Joshua Tree is the first album I recollect hearing (along with Fleetwood Mac’s “Tango in the Night”) and Zooropa might be the first album I remember being obsessed with. “Stay (Faraway so Close)” has to be the most underrated song EVER. It brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it for the sake of pure nostalgia. The song still holds up today in every shape and form.

It’s difficult to take a list that includes Beyonce’s “B-Day” and Adele’s “21″ on the list. We must remember that EW like Rolling Stone is very populist and needs to appeal to the masses.

And here’s my bitch omission comment: Eric B & Rakim’s “Paid In Full”?

And Hole? Really?

nope. not pushing it. it’s difficult to rank a not-even-3-years-old kanye album next to beach boys and beatles… but in 30 years i imagine we’ll be treating MBDTF with the same reverence. i can’t think of a more universally lauded album from this past decade, and if there’s one post-millenial album that deserves the top 10 spot, it’s this one. that and the writer obviously hates Radiohead.

Get Lucky IS the song of the summer already. It’s a ubiquitous, multi-format, multi-generational smash that has bled into popular culture and will be played at weddings 30 years from now. I’ve heard the song 200 times and it STILL hasn’t gotten old.

I haven’t seen Charli XCX’s “Take My Hand” mentioned… one of my favorite pop songs this year.

And just to throw it out there… I’m exactly one year too late… but King Tuff’s “Keep on Movin” is my summer 2013 anthem.

I saw it live… it was great entertainment.

“Love Ridden” is by far my favorite Fiona song. But still, nice to see a “When the Pawn…”-heavy list. It’s by far her best.

My favorite thing about this song is that Nile Rodgers is in part responsible for inventing and popularizing this exact sound. I hope this is the start of a late career resurgence.
