Not a bad list but also interesting for how it’s not even close to capturing the moment. Maybe that’s too much to ask but still...

I hear you. But we may be using hindsight. Those middle picks aren't much, and even The Beatles is fluff. But at the time, this is what a lot of people listened to. It's the difference between using the charts from the time, and picking out own selections that we want to hear now. Or, to put it in the context of the time, it's me feeling the need to add "She's a Rainbow" at the end.
