Welcome to the first installment of ATRL's 250 Greatest Songs Of All Time. Inspired by Rolling Stone's iconic 500 Greatest Songs of All Time list, this is meant to capture the musical taste of the entire ATRL community and recognize the best of the best songs. Beginning on March 1st, I will begin counting down the 250 greatest songs of all time, according to ATRL users. To keep things interesting and fair, I have established some rules.

 

How It Works:

  • All songs must have been released on or before September 1st, 2016
  • No more than 5 songs per artist per list
  • You may nominate any song, whether it's a single, album track, or demo
  • Each participant must submit a list of 35 ranked songs (25 songs + 10 honorable mentions)
  • NO OBVIOUS TROLL OR FORMULATED BALLOTS WILL BE ACCEPTED.

That's what I'm hoping, too. I won't be surprised to see a Britney or Beyonce song be the #1.

 

My idea with the September 2016 deadline is to weed out a lot of hot, new songs which people tend to have on their minds when they do these kind of lists.

Also...does this mean released singles only, or can album tracks be included as well?

It can be singles, album tracks, leaked demos, etc. Anything, really.

 

P.S. I made the text big so nobody misses it.

This is very discriminatory against artists who have impeccable catalogs.

  • No more than 5 songs per artist per list

Just pick 5 of their very best songs.

 

I did that so Glory, Lemonade, and Anti didn't make up the entire top 20 because lord knows...

All I'm saying is there better be at least one pre-1985 song.

The chances of that or a song from a male artist even charting high are probably slim.

It's hard to pick 5 from someone like musical genius Stevie Wonder. However, I will see what I can do. :gaycat2:

And yeah, lord knows ppl would put those whole albums on their lists. :doc:

My #1 song is from a male artist from before 1985.
