I concur. Annoys the crap out of me. Just a list would be fine.

Or any kind of journalism, for that matter.

Ugh, did they really? I stopped going there some time ago, but that sure doesn't make me sorry I did.

For all the country on that list, no Blues Eyes Crying In The Rain? No I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry? They overthought that one.

On the plus side...SEPTEMBER GURLS

The list is such a huge mess. They tried to take on way too much. Sometimes the went for the obvious pick, sometimes the pretentious, but the most egrious error on the list, however, is definitely picking anything by Louis Armstrong that is not "Wonderful World."

They said they were trying to pick the most enduring, beautiful songs...well...uh...duh?

I love Janelle Monae and Tightrope is a baller song, but one of the all-time 100 English language pop songs? Nahhhhhhh.

It's the Bleacher Report syndrome. That website (which is the worst thing on the Internet) gets a ton of play on Google for any sports search, purely because of the slideshow system.

Well to be fair I just checked and it's actually about 3 paragraphs, but when each "recap" is 10-20 pages you start thinking bad thoughts about the corporate tools running it.

Plus I got bored of the straight recap house style.
