Hey there hi there ho there good people! Today’s episode is all about Billboard’s Top Ten Greatest Songs Of All Time. This list is taken from Billboard’s website. It is not our list!
Why am I saying that? Because, frankly, we don’t believe this list. At all. This list angers Dave repeatedly.
Billboard claims that this list is determined by an algorithm that takes sales data, streaming data and radio airplay into account.
Personally I think their algorithm is shitty because this list is shitty. Here is a pdf of the entire Hot 100 of all time list. Judge for yourself! My guess is that the billboard algorithm is just wrong. It’s coded wrong, the numbers are weighted wrong, something (or maybe everything!) is wrong.
Anyway, the list may be awful but the podcast, however, is awesome because Dave gets progressively more irked throughout it which is pretty hysterical. If you ever really wanted to know how he feels about Olivia Newton-John, welp, this episode is for you!Read more
