Only one song from after 2013 in the Top 11 is a pretty interesting trend.
I honestly expect the latest album in our top 20 to be Blackstar (2016) at this rate.

The top albums in terms of songs in our top 100 are...

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (5)
To Pimp a Butterfly (3)
The Suburbs (3)

...which, not coincidentally, is a pretty good bet for our top 3 albums in the albums poll (though Blackstar could certainly sneak in there somewhere).

So that puts us back at 99 songs confirmed.

There are rumors now that Trump may resign rather than taking a beating in the election, attempting to martyr himself.
