The 20 Biggest Fallers in Rolling Stone's Updated 'Greatest Songs' List

"The times they are a-changin" Bob Dylan famously sang.

And when music magazine Rolling Stone updated its 2004 "500 Greatest Songs of All Time" last month, Dylan's hit was among those to fall the highest number of places.

That song and those listed below fell more places than any others in the updated list, tumbling out of the top 500 like a rolling stone.

The legacy of these tracks still remains but as new artists and songs make their mark in the music scene. See the new entries here, and find out the highest climbers here.

These are the 20 biggest fallers in Rolling Stone's updated rundown...

1. 'You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' by The Righteous Brothers (1964)

Critically acclaimed and a commercial success on its release in the mid '60s, the song ranked No. 34 on the 2004 list.

In 2015 the track was inducted into the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".

In its latest 2021 update, "you've lost that lovin' feelin'" is out of the RS 500 and there is not much the Righteous Brothers can do "now it's gone... gone... gone... woooooo..."

2. 'When a Man Loves a Woman' by Percy Sledge (1966)

OUT. Down at least 447

A No.1 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B singles charts when it first came out.

In 2004, the Percy Sledge version was listed 53rd in RS 500 greatest songs, but 17 years later it didn't make the cut.

3. 'Long Tall Sally' by Little Richard (1956)

"Long tall Sally, she's built for speed" but not for the RS500 update. The track was not included in the 500 greatest songs of all time list, even if in 2004 it ranked at number 55.

The song was Little Richard's biggest hit, with The Beatles and The Kinks both later recording their own versions.

This song by the Nobel Laureate in Literature winner—although major literary figures like Mario Vargas Llosa did question his award, saying it should go to writers not singers—was deemed unworthy of inclusion in the RS 500 greatest songs of all time in 2021.

5. 'Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On' by Jerry Lee Lewis (1957)

OUT. Down at least 440

Jerry Lee Lewis's version of the song ranked 61st greatest song of all time in 2004, a year later, it was selected for permanent preservation in the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress.

I didn't realise it at the time; I just wrote the song because I was commissioned to write it for the movie. But later, I knew I really was crying out for help. So it was my fat Elvis period."
