Re: Errors in the 2018 update

Pitchfork and NME's end-of-decade lists cite M.I.A's Bad Girls as a song of the year 2010.
On the AM website the song is dated as a 2012 release.

However, I didn't like this list, obviously there are some songs I like and that's all

It's great to have "Dancing On My Own" at the top, which is infinitely higher than "Get Lucky" if Robyn tops the AM list for me, it's great !!!

Re: AMF All Time Artists List 2019 - Results

A good example of an artist who was not well recognized by both the public and critics at the time is Nina Simone and now she is more important than most artists who emerged in the 50 years.

Critics bring an overview of how they see the past in current times, so it always changes.
