Debate

Best ever lists are usually around 25 to 50 per cent right; the rest being up for big time debate.

This latest list - best songs from the last 60 years - is one of those 'big time debate' lists, especially with Joy Division's Love will tear us apart being voted into the top spot. 

Sixty years - that's the best? The one people remember most?  The one they appreciate more than any other song in six friggin' decades?! 
 
Number two isn't ringing my bells either, although the retro video is pretty cool

The first 20 tracks from the list:

1. Joy Division - Love Will Tear Us Apart
2. Pulp - Common People
3. David Bowie - Heroes
4. The Beach Boys - Good Vibrations
5. New Order - Blue Monday
6. The Stone Roses - She Bangs The Drums
7. The Smiths - There Is A Light That Never Goes Out
8. The Specials - Ghost Town
9. Dizzee Rascal - Fix Up, Look Sharp
10. Oasis - Wonderwall
11. The Rolling Stones - Sympathy For The Devil
12. The Ronettes - Be My Baby
13. Michael Jackson - Billie Jean
14. Sex Pistols - God Save The Queen
15. The Beatles - A Day In The Life
16. The Cure - Boys Don't Cry
17. Bob Dylan - Like A Rolling Stone
18. The Beach Boys - God Only Knows
19. Madonna - Like A Prayer
20. The Stone Roses - I Am The Resurrection
