Grimes lists her favorite songs of all time (includes Mariah Carey, Beyonce, Paramore, Burial, Butthole Surfers & more)

Grimes at ACL 2013 (more by Tim Griffin)

Whether it’s to criticize her or praise her, it’s hard to deny that people like talking about Grimes‘ musical opinions. Her top 10 albums of 2012 list included the most pop (Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber) AND the least pop (Swans), and she totally meant it too. She’s defended Beyonce, Mariah Carey, and pop music in general, and denied accusations of trolling when her Boiler Room set included Taylor Swift, Maria Carey, Ramones, Skrillex, and others.

Grimes has now published a list to her tumblr of her favorite songs of all time. It continues her trend of pulling from pop and experimental music with songs from Burial, Mariah Carey, Joanna Newsom, Beyonce, Mazzy Star, Skrillex, Animal Collective, Butthole Surfers, Paramore and more. It’s not only newer stuff though, she’s also got Patsy Cline, Prince, and Enya, among others.

Check out her whole list (subject to change), via Exclaim, below…
