What is your favorite song NOT included in the AM top 6000?

I personally love Take Pills by Panda Bear, and was surprised when it didn't appear on Acclaimed Music.

What's your pick?

Re: Errors in the July 2014 update v. 2

I noticed that "The Entertainer" by Scott Joplin is listed as being released in 1973. This song was originally released in 1902.

It might have been re-released at some point, but I think it's likely that the version the critics are referring to is the one from 1902.

Re: NME 2014 The 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time

So clearly Oasis is one of the top 5 bands of all time, right? :roll:

I still think the list is decent overall, though, and does a good job of bringing some more recent songs into the "canon."

Re: Albums of 2013

Musically, Yeezus has me floored. I can't stop listening to it, and that hasn't happened to me since 2010 at least.

The album is problematic for me, though, because the lyrics are just so bad. I don't know what to do with it.

Strange, I normally take punk over soul. Carr's grabbed me from the start, though.

4. Tha Carter II

The entire album boils down to "fuck bitches, get money," but at least it won't fall apart when I pick it up.
