Much of the list is taken up by songs by the Beatles
and the Rolling Stones, and was compiled taking into
account the opinions of 172 artists including Joni
Mitchell, Elvis Costello and K D Lang. Interestingly,
only one song from recent years made the top 20 -
Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit.

Over 200 of the top 500 were from the 60s, 144 from
the 70s, and the 1980s spawned only 55.
