Great rollout and very interesting results. I had a feeling that Kyoto might win, but didn't want to jinx it.

We ended up with the same top Fiona Apple song and Dua Lipa song as critics, as well as a lot of other artists' songs. We really synced with critics in that sense.

I don't really get the massive love for "I Know the End." It's a good song, but I feel like Radiohead's "The National Anthem" did the same thing twenty years ago? It probably comes down to there being a group of popular songs that don't click with me, but I thought I'd put it out there.
