The most recent issue of Rolling Stone, featuring yet another 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time list, got my friends and I joking about how editorial departments pander shamelessly to the public's perceived affection for lists-as-features. Cue "100 Greatest Lists of Greatest Lists" gag now.
Lo and behold, what to my wondering eyes should appear when I click on RollingStone.com today to stream Jónsi's new soundtrack for "We Bought A Zoo" but—you guessed it—"The Greatest Rock & Roll Christmas Songs." *sigh* Most of it is as predictable as you'd expect from a magazine that only ranked two women among the Greatest Guitarists (Maybelle Carter who? The Duchess? Never heard of her...), but there are a couple surprises after you dig past the opening no-brainers.
