    1. i find this album to be very boring

    i would have moved the old days into the top 20

  2. It’s really kind of a crapshoot what gets in the top 20. I should have done a top 50 or something, but really it’s silly to rank songs anyway.

    Oh, and you’re the one who’s boring, buddy. You and your knee-jerk contrarianism.

  3. Coach Football

    No Boston? Boston should be on most lists.
