MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – One thing is for certain. The editors at Entertainment Weekly have certainly purified themselves in the waters of Lake Minnetonka.

The staff at the popular magazine have just released an issue featuring top 100 lists of all time in movies, music, TV and more.

Minnesota musicians certainly earned their stripes among the magazine’s choices for music. Among the top 10 albums of all time were Prince’s “Purple Rain,” which landed in second place, and Bob Dylan’s “Highway 61 Revisited,” which was 6th.

“The moment Prince sang ‘Baby I’m a Star,’ he was one,” the magazine wrote.

The rest of the top 5 albums included The Beatles’ “Revolver” at #1, The Rolling Stones’ “Exile on Main Street,” Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” and The Clash’s “London Calling.”

The magazine also called Prince’s “Kiss” the second best dance song ever.

Entertainment Weekly also declared the Minneapolis-set sitcom “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” the fourth best TV show ever.
