What Do Philbert And Rolling Stone Magazine Have In Common?

Below you’ll find a list of Rolling Stone’s “Top 30 Songs Of All Time”. Rolling Stone magazine ceased to be a credible music resource for me years ago. I seldom agree with their critics choices for these lists but they’re still kind of fun, and I have to agree that some of the top 30 are spot on, others, well…let’s just say that I would have placed “God Only Knows” much higher.

Do you agree? What did they miss?
