Gimme Top 5 : Best songs about NOTHING

The heading concept is very simple: every Wednesday (or so), Still in Rock proposes to list some “top 5”: an artist’s 5 best songs, a label’s 5 best albums, a musical style best’s 5 albums and so on … One day, we will even make the top 5 of these Gimme Top 5, I promise. This little game necessarily is subjective but it compensates by one of its main qualities: to tease all of those thinking that lists are useless. Whether we like it or not, the amount of available information on the Internet is endless. Let us try to put a little order, each at our own scale.


Le concept de cette rubrique est des plus simples : tous les mercredis (ou presque), Still in Rock se propose de lister quelques “top 5” : celui des meilleurs morceaux d’un artiste, celui des meilleurs albums d’un label, celui des meilleurs albums d’un genre musical et j’en passe… Un jour, on fera même le top 5 des tops 5, promis. L’exercice est nécessairement subjectif mais il compense par l’une de ses qualités : titiller tous ceux qui pensent que les listes ne servent à rien. Qu’on le veuille ou non, la quantité d’information disponible sur Internet est sans fin. Tachons d’y mettre un peu d’ordre, chacun à notre échelle.
Bonne lecture my friends !
