Well, for what it's worth, Simon and Garfunkel and Wilco placed at #23 and #71 in our top artists poll last year, keeping about the same distance from each other as the previous version of the poll. And LCD Soundsystem and Elton John placed at #39 and #41, switching leads from the earlier poll. http...

"Be My Baby" is great and stuff, but it could just as well be outside of the Top 100 songs and I wouldn't be bothered. (Though I guess don't tell Brian Wilson that... damn, I wonder what his daughter Carnie thinks of that song now.)

Thanks as always, Henrik

Depeche Mode, Kendrick Lamar, and Pearl Jam are new(?) top 100 artists. AC/DC now at #57!

Seems odd to see "Be My Baby" around the very pinnacle of all musical recording. Just seems like an enjoyable song, nothing more.
