Re: Al Borde - "The 500 most important ibearoamerican rock songs" (2006)
From the pdf:
"The list has collect the songs considering the importance of the band, and the song impact in its time, in its country of origin and in a regional level as well. Local lists, as well as books, specialized webpages and fan forums were taken as sources; all of them with a proportional value."
That Rolling Stones list is more Spain-oriented. There are many obvious omissions when you considered the whole spectrum of the spanish-speaking world.
As for Serrat, I really don't know why he didn't make it this time, he's great. I'm from South America, and he's as important here as he is anywhere else, and that's a fact.
