Le “100 Greatest Songs” dei Beatles secondo Rolling Stone USA

RS_beatlesQualche giorno fa vi avevamo parlato del cinquantesimo anniversario di “I Want To Hold Your Hand”, storico successo dei Beatles pubblicato nel novembre 1963. Questo brano, come avevamo già detto in quell’articolo, si trova al secondo posto della speciale classifica pubblicata da Rolling Stone USA riguardante le 100 migliori canzoni dei Beatles. La classifica in questione, pubblicata in una Special Collectors Edition della storica testata americana (che ovviamente non ci siamo fatti sfuggire durante un nostro recente viaggio negli States, N.d.R.) spazia in tutto l’arco temporale di attività dei Fab Four, ovvero dal 1963 al 1970 e contiene una speciale introduzione redatta da Elvis Costello. Ve la proponiamo in dettaglio in questo articolo. Se vi va, diteci poi cosa ne pensate.
