Editors’ Notes Here’s an era- and genre-spanning playlist of genuine pop classics—the stuff of weddings and barbecues, that transcends old and young; songs so deeply lodged in the cultural memory that you can probably hum them even if you don’t know their names. In other words, music we know, love, and never get tired of. Evergreen as most of this stuff is, our editors do make updates regularly, so if you hear something you like, add it to your library.
