FOREVER YOUNG THE ULTIMATE POST-BEATLES ERA SONGS FOREVER YOUNG
 

Dopo attenta analisi, accese discussioni e un imprecisato numero di feriti, abbiamo stilato questa mini-classifica delle canzoni che, per vari motivi, hanno segnato l’epoca che va dallo scioglimento dei Beatles (1970) ai giorni nostri.
Il criterio adottato per la selezione dei brani ha tenuto conto dei seguenti parametri:

1) valore musicale “tout court”
2) livello artistico dell’esecuzione
3) innovazioni stilistiche introdotte
4) impatto emotivo esercitato sul pubblico
(a prescindere dal successo commerciale riscosso)
5) capacitā di resistere al tempo e alle mode

Non č colpa nostra se non č presente alcun titolo successivo al 1989 ...
