Re: The AMF Top Songs of All Time 2018 Edition: Results

I've always been a fan of the "alternative" lists. One of my favorites was from last year's albums poll. The list by people who didn't vote for Sgt. Pepper still had Abbey Road in their to 10!

Re: Songs and Albums of 1999 Poll

The wild cards benefit the years when more people vote, and those tend to be the earlier years of the polls. I do think we should try to come up with an alternative wild card system for next year's poll (I have some, which I'll suggest in another thread when the time comes).

I think we've exhausted 2017 now that "How Do You Sleep" has shown up. So the question of what the top new song for this poll is either from 2016 or late 2015. I imagine the song will be by David Bowie or Beyonce, unless I'm forgetting something obvious.
