The music meme revisited

Thanks to King Bananian, there's an alternative list of music with a lot more good tunes than the original that I worked off of.

The Top Songs from 1977

Rank/All Time Rank/Artist/ Single
1 30 Sex Pistols God Save the Queen
2 58 David Bowie Heroes

One of my favorite songs.
3 99 The Bee Gees Stayin' Alive
4 179 Donna Summer I Feel Love
5 201 Fleetwood Mac Go Your Own Way
6 224 Talking Heads Psycho Killer
7 232 Ramones Sheena Is a Punkrocker
8 266 Elvis Costello Alison
9 299 Sex Pistols Pretty Vacant
10 310 Television Marquee Moon
11 314 Iggy Pop Lust for Life
12 331 The Clash Complete Control
13 427 Elvis Costello Watching the Detectives
Overrated, like so much of his music.
14 452 The Clash White Riot
15 456 Sex Pistols Holidays in the Sun
16 669 Richard Hell & The Voidoids Blank Generation
17 731 Queen We Will Rock You
18 732 Bob Marley and The Wailers Jamming
Overplayed. "Buffalo Soldier" was a lot better than this.
19 748 AC/DC Whole Lotta Rosie
20 775 Billy Joel Just the Way You Are
21 792 The Trammps Disco Inferno
22 808 Parliament Flash Light
23 828 Queen We Are the Champions

24 832 X-Ray Spex Oh Bondage Up Yours!
25 852 Althea and Donna Uptown Top Ranking
26 898 The Buzzcocks Orgasm Addict
27 924 Electric Light Orchestra Mr. Blue Sky
28 959 Kraftwerk Trans-Europa Express
29 999 Devo Jocko Homo

30 1089 Suicide Frankie Teardrop
31 1090 Ian Dury and The Blockheads Sex and Drugs and Rock'n'roll
32 1189 The Jam In the City
33 1232 Eddie and The Hot Rods Do Anything You Wanna Do
34 1345 Iggy Pop The Passenger
35 1350 David Bowie Sound and Vision
36 1383 The Buzzcocks Breakdown
37 1424 Wire Three Girl Rumba
38 1565 Jackson Browne Running On Empty
39 1648 Eric Clapton Wonderful Tonight
I liked this when it first came out, but then it got played to death.
40 1672 Meat Loaf Paradise By the Dashboard Light
41 1770 Fleetwood Mac Dreams

42 1847 The Bee Gees Night Fever
43 1858 Peter Gabriel Solsbury Hill
One of the few Peter Gabriel songs that doesn't really move me one way or the other.
44 1908 The Emotions Best of My Love

Wonder what happened to the other 56? Anyway, I like a lot of the songs from the Music Outfitters 1975 list. King must be way more picky than I am.
