Re: AMF Favorite Songs of the 2010s - RESULTS

The presentation is fine as it is, but I just have to mention that I like Wolves OG version from Yeezy Season 1. TLOP version has an added verse that's kinda cringe. For example it has the follow/swallow line rehashed when it was already perfect on Yeezus. Just sounds like a cheap copy.

IMO it's the 60s. 70s is a bit deeper, but the 60s has more of my absolute favorites.

Is Royals by Lorde 2013 or 2012? It was included in The Love Club EP in 2012.

Edit: I see it was self-released in 2012 and commercially released in 2013. So I guess not an error.
