Prelude to The Top 500 Songs of the Rock Era*: Paul Mc Cartney & Wings with "Listen To What The Man Said"

What is unique about our presentation of The Top 500 Songs of the Rock Era* is that we don't rank songs by chart numbers, nor do we do the unprofessional thing and rank them by our own opinion.  The songs are ranked by public opinion, through music sales and radio airplay, as well as awards won and other verifiable factors.  These factors are plugged into a huge database of over 13,000 songs using a formula that would take nearly a page to print out.  Thus, a #1 song isn't necessarily better than a #2 or 3 song, and weeks at #1 isn't the determining factor.  One published ranking actually had "Macarena" as The #1 Song of All-Time.  That was embarrassing--I felt bad for the author.

This great #1 song used to be a member of The Top 500 Songs Club*--crank up this great 1975 song...
