Rolling Stone magazine has published the list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time •

NSthe famous music magazine Rolling Stone has updated its ranking of 500 Best Songs of All Time. The best 20 included, among others songs by Beyoncé, Aretha Franklin, The Beatles, Missy Elliott, Marvin Gaye, Prince, Outkast and Fleetwood Mac.

In 2004, Rolling Stone published its list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. This ranking is one of the most discussed publications in the history of the magazine. After 17 years, the editors decided to rethink and choose the crème de la crème, the best of the best.

To create the new version, over 250 performers, musicians and producers were surveyed, including Zedd, Sam Smith, Billy Ward, and Megan Thee Stallion, as well as leading critics and journalists. Each of these people submitted a list of their 50 favorite songs and the editors of Rolling Stone summarized their results.

While the 2004 release was dominated by early rock and soul, the new edition features more hip-hop, modern country, indie rock, Latin pop, reggae and R&B. More than half of the songs on the new RS 500 were not on the old list, including a third from the Top 100.

The 1967 hit “Respect” by the queen of soul Aretha Franklin was recognized as the best song of all time. Public Enemy from “Fight the Power” and Sam Cooke from “A Change Is Gonna Come” were also on the podium.
