List@mania: 75 canções que definiram o Rock ‘N’ Roll !
Quando o personagem Rob Flemming, do livro Alta Fidelidade de Nick Hornby, mostrava-se um viciado em contar fatos através listas de “TOP 5”, foi criada uma das melhores metáforas do mundo pop; a mídia e o ser humano adoram listas! Todos fogem, todos discordam, todos fingem não ver, mas ninguém resite a uma lista; no mínimo, para discordar de seu conteúdo.

Fato posto, o Blog Do Maia inaugura uma nova sessão: “List@mania”; uma seleção de listas de todos os tempos, sobre discos e fatos do universo musical pop em geral.
Para começar, que tal a lista do consagrado jornal/site NME, apontando 75 canções que definiram o Rock ‘N’ Roll? Esta lista foi lançada no suplemento da edição de número 3000 da revista e posso dizer que, logo de cara, eu mesmo fico decepcionado por não ver nenhuma canção dos Beatles!!!
