Rock And Roll Is A Shape!

Apparently, it is. I don't know what kind of shape. Maybe circular platform with lots of declining curves. But anyway, Music writers and critics, led by James Henke (chief curator for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame) released the list of 500 Songs That Shaped Rock.

I've read the list for a few times, and still can't figure out the reasoning behind the selection. Maybe because the songs decribe traits of Rock and Roll? Because Rock&Roll "Smells Like Teen Spirit"? Or maybe because the songs deliver their inner cry? "Like a Virgin" "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction"?

Or maybe because they know, it's fun to play sentences with the choice of titles. Well, "Help Me" "Moondance" "Sincerely" "Brown-eyed Girl" because "U Can't Touch This!"

Speaking of "U Can't Touch This," have you ever wondered whatever happened to MC. Hammer? Well, at least now, he could say that he helped Shape Rock and Roll.
