In Search of Ancient Thread: Undebatably Awesome Things

Many years ago, there was a thread that I'm 89% sure was on AskMe. The thrust of the question was: what cultural products enjoy a very broad consensus that they are good? Answers, for example, were things like The Beatles, Shakespeare, the jazz standards..things that have been respected from both popular and critical perspectives,. Things that a person might or might not like for themselves, but that few people would seriously dispute they were of great quality. Does anyone remember this thread? Did I make it up? Thanks for any help!

My heart be warmed

This AskMe thread looked like trouble but turned into a pretty encouraging display of thoughtfulness and knowledge, and when Grlnxtdr started to really understand the responses it just about knocked me out. A fascinating read, too. [more inside]
