Link: The 200 Best Songs of the 1980s (Pitchfork)

Pitchfork released a new list, ranking the best 200 songs of the 1980s and embracing their cultural significance:

A great deal of today’s music looks to the ’80s for inspiration, but there are so many different ideas of what “‘80s” as a descriptor can mean. Here we return to the source material.

I don’t know a lot about music from the 1980s and actually grew tired of most of what you can hear on local German radio stations. But this list looks promising as it does not resemble those playlists at all – so I’ll give it a spin…

Again, I created a public Google Docs Spreadsheet with the plain ranking of the 200 songs. Find it HERE.
