What No Weezer! Have you heard the new CD? What do you think

This is an amazing list. I like your mixture of the old and new....and it's just incredible that you made it at all. I could never go through music like this. I don't know enough and I don't have enough patience.

I like that The arcade Fire is in your top 10. I resisted them for a long time because they seem to be a Provo favorite and I'm bitter about Provo favorites (unrightly so). But since I started listening to them I found that they struck a chord, and understandably for a Provo audience.

This is a pretty much immaculate list. Well done. Way too many Paul songs that were untouched by John but other than that, my only complaint is that "Don't Worry Baby" isn't higher. In my opinion, the quintessential pre/non Pet Sounds Beach Boys song.
