I should listen to these kind of lists from the bottom up…

 

But after listening for a while, these kinds of lists are utter trash and show the real problem:

Finding music is difficult and a chart based on the amount of people listening doesn’t really help. For all I know all these people might have just listened to the top song because they wanted to understand how other people were listening to that song at all. Echo chamber, you know.

So really, the human curation is much better than the algorithmic.

That said, my favorite curator is, strangely enough, Elton John.
