"The Q Ultimate Music Collection"

As many "top" music lists as you'll ever need

"Why Classic Rock Isn’t What It Used To Be"

And this last one reminds me of Picasso's "Good artists copy but great artists steal": "Bob Dylan’s ‘Da Vinci Code’ Revealed".

Researchers say they’ve uncovered more than 1,000 items lifted from other authors in Dylan’s ‘Chronicles.’ And that’s just the beginning.
