  2. Veenstra's Essential 500

Het einde van elk jaar staat in het teken van eindejaarslijstjes en dat zet ook Michiel aan het nadenken. Welke nummers zijn volgens Veenstra de beste en belangrijkste nummers ooit gemaakt?

Je mag het een DJ nooit vragen: "Wat is nou het beste liedje ooit gemaakt?" Maar toch, luisterend naar die Beste Aller Tijden-lijsten aan het einde van 2015 begon ik me af te vragen welke liedjes mijn selectie wel en niet zouden halen. Ik turfde mijn hele bibliotheek door, wel goedgekeurd, niet goedgekeurd, twijfelgeval.

Uiteindelijk kwam ik op een getal rond de 500 uit. Toen kwam de autist in mij omhoog die een rond getal mooi vindt. Na wat schaven kwam ik eruit: Mijn lijst van 500 Essentials. Geen rangschikking, daar begin ik niet aan. Dit zijn - volledig subjectief - de 500 beste en belangrijkste liedjes ooit gemaakt.

Bekijk de lijst hier of beluister hem op Apple Music, Spotify of Deezer:
