The magazine specialized in music Rolling Stone published on Tuesday a list that ranked the top 100 singles debut that have come on the market, and that heads number one in the u.s. Britney Spears with the song …Baby One More Time.
“The list that we have formed is very much leaning towards those ‘singles’ that became the foundations of great careersalthough there are a couple of artists of a single success,” explains the environment in the introduction to the listing, which notes that no account has been taken of issues of figures that had been made famous in musical groups and later began a solo career.
Of …Baby One More Timethe experts say that it was “one of those manifestos of the pop that ushered in a new sound, a new era and a new century.”, and describe it as “a statement that caused divisions, and that drew the line between the past and the future.”
In the second place, the magazine highlights the I Want You Back of the Jackson 5, who says that “every moment is perfect”, from start to finish, and points out that “not only defined the ’70s, but has summarized the essence of the joy of music since then”.
The Sex Pistols, and his Anarchy in the U. K. occupy the third place, a “single” whose first few seconds described as a “bulldozer that is heading straight to you”, and her first words sound “as if Lucifer had ascended from the underworld”. But even so, it is a song “very catchy and very funny”.
At the gates of the podium was Run-D. M. C and the song Sucker M. C’s/ It’s Like That, a melody “explosive” which took hip-hop to go from the nightclubs to the street, and that was “the beginning of the golden age” of this genre of music.
For the fifth position, the magazine goes back in time, specifically to 1955, and retrieves the Maybellene Chuck Berry, who ranks as “ode to the founder of rock & roll” and a “revolutionary sound”.
Rounding out the top ten positions Radio Free Europe of R. E. M., Good Times Bad Times Led Zepellin, That’s All Right Elvis Presley, Blitzkrieg Bop of The Ramones, and Hand in Glove of The Smiths.
