Re: AMF's Greatest Guilty Pleasure Songs of All Time (2018): Results Thread

I've gone through the top 200, and as expected, my reactions are wildly varying. There are some of my all time favorite songs included, and some of my all time least favorites included (including several in my bottom 10). Based on a 0-10 scale, here are the counts: 0-0.5: 15 songs 1-1.5: 18 songs 2-...

Re: AMF's Greatest Guilty Pleasure Songs of All Time (2018): Results Thread

A very minor quibble: "Things That Make You Go Hmmm" actually only has one vote according to the spreadsheet. That would make "Relax" by Frankie Goes to Hollywood jump into the top 200.
