As I'm watching (and laughing at the majority of the song choices they play) I am saying to myself 67 and 69 have to be at or near the top...when it got to #2 and neither had shown it was..."WTF?", then to not even give 67 an honorable mention but just say "while 1967 was also a great year for music, 1969 is #1" is just ridonkulous.

But my favorite thing was them using the examples of Macca leaving the Beatles and Hendrix and Joplin dying as the main reasons 1970 was one of the 10 best years in music history...

I don't know why I obsessively watch this channel, but I can't help myself. Usually, I just disagree with their order, but a list like this is something special: Ill thought out, poorly researched, bad examples. Generally, a disaster.

They did a similar list for film years, and as I recall, it was much better:

Nope. I have a Carpenters radar that pings me to let me know when there's been a post about them, usually by the same person each time.

Exhibit A.

1971 and 1969 are my two favorite music years.
