Las 500 mejores canciones de la historia, según la revista Rolling Stone

Las 500 mejores canciones de la historia según la revista Rolling StoneHace un año publicábamos un post con la lista de las 500 mejores canciones del rock según la emisora española Rock FM. Como ese post gustó bastante, me he decidido a publicar también la que posiblemente sea la lista de canciones más famosa. Estoy hablando de las 500 mejores canciones de todos los tiempos, una lista que publicó la revista Rolling Stone en 2004 tras consultar con 172 profesionales del sector, desde músicos a críticos, pasando por productores o compositores.

Como en esto de las listas cada uno tiene la suya, no voy a comentar que falte tal o cual grupo, o que algún otro tenga demasiadas canciones. Además hay que tener en cuenta que esta lista abarca todos los estilos, no solo rock o pop, por lo que la variedad es notable. Es criticable que solo haya canciones del mundo anglosajón, con muy pocas excepciones, pero hay que entender que ese es el ámbito de la revista y el origen de las personalidades encuestadas, así que tampoco resulta extraño.

Lo que sí haré es citar algunas curiosidades. El grupo con mayor representación son los Beatles con 23 canciones, seguidos de los Rolling Stones con 14 y Bob Dylan con 13. Todas las canciones son cantadas en inglés, excepto La Bamba (345), cantada en español, y Green onions (181), que es instrumental. La década que aporta más canciones es la de los años 60, con 204, mientras que hay solo una canción anterior a 1950 y 3 posteriores al año 2000.

Y ahora, vamos ya con la lista. Seguro que no estás de acuerdo con algo, así que no dejes de ponerlo por escrito con un comentario.

  1. Lo que me pregunto es que criterios tendrá la gente que diseñó esta lista. Me imagino que estará basada en la popularidad de las canciones principalmente, y que tanto hayan pasado por la radio.

    1. Preguntaron a una serie de personas del mundo de la música, y supongo que cada uno aportó sus canciones favoritas. Al ser profesionales hay muchas canciones importantes o que marcaron época, pero no deja de ser una lista elaborada mediante votaciones subjetivas.

      Por otra parte, ¿hay alguna forma objetiva de realizar una lista así?

  2. Jolín, como tengo poca tarea, ahora a buscar a los que no me suenan pa ná.. aunque imagino que si están en las 500 mejores copillas, las habré oído... o no?
    Empiezo por la 440.. es una coplilla que se escuchó bastante, así que claramente los "conocía".. pero de ahí a ser una de las mejores de la historia...me gustaba más Let's Talk about sex.. jejejeje. Como bien dices, no hay forma objetiva de hacer este tipo de lista. Ni yo, en mi lista, sé mu bien cuáles serían las primeras.. Y hay tantas coplillas altamente congratulantes que no están en esas 500..(y mi grupo favorito no aparece nunca por ningún lao, afú.. jajajaja)

    1. Se han colado varias canciones que yo no pondría ni entre las 5.000 mejores. Por cierto, ¿y cuál sería entonces tu grupo favorito? Si lo dices le hacemos un post ;)

    2. Más de una vez he estao tentá de decirlo... pero voy a esperar un poco más. Creo que si un día lo veo me voy a poner tan tan tan tan contenta, que quiero daros la oportunidad de ser los artífices de esa contentura.. jajajajaja :p

      Eliminar
    3. Pues no, jejejejeje.. son de entre 1990 y 1995... hasta ahí puedo leer, jajajajaja... bueno venga, otra pista... son ingleses.. :D

  3. Solo dos canciones de Queen, la primera de ellas la 163th y eso que es El mejor grupo de rock británico de todos los tiempos (con permiso de los Beatles), y en la lista de los 500 mejores albumes de la historia de esta misma revista, ni un solo disco de Queen. No tengo más que añadir.

    1. amigo la pregunta es...DONDE ESTA SULTANS OF SWINGS Y NOVEMBER RAIN?¡?¡ ahh si y tambien Iron Maiden

      Eliminar
  4. una cancion como Sultans of swing tendria que estar en los primeros puestos y aca ni siquiera aparece en la lista, INCREIBLE

    ResponderEliminar
  5. vaya mierda de lista: bohemian rhapsody 163¡¿¡¿ starway to heaven 31
    donde esta master of puppets o one, sultans of swings...
    aqui solo ponen a los beatles y los rolling( indudablemente leyendas pero vamos aqui solo han abordado el rock clasico sin ningun tipo de variedad)

  6. Partiendo de la base de que esto es muy subjetivo, me parece una caca de lista, y supongo que en ella las discográficas habrán tenido mucho peso. Se echan en falta un montón de canciones y de artistas, y sobran otro montón, que no merecerían estar ni entre las 5000 mejores. Por citar a algunos que es inconcevible que no aparezcan, Supertramp, The Alan Parson Project, Barry White, Leonard Cohen, Boston, John Denver, Carpenters, y muchos más. Pero sobre todo, Louis Amstrong y su "What a Wonderful World"; "una lista" sin esa canción en un puesto relevante, es "una tonta". :-)

    1. "What a Wonderful World" esa canción es hermosa, también falto "Run to me" de Bee Gees y bohemian rhapsody debería estar muchos puestos mas arriba.

      Eliminar
  7. ¿Y la banda más caliente del mundo, KISS? ¿Dónde los dejan? Supongo que, como dicen comentarios anteriores, se basaron en la popularidad de las canciones, aunque hay alguno que otro grupo y/o canción que no me suenan de nada.
