Re: Albums of 2019

To complete the circle. here is the list based on the 25 sites that are featured on AM. Note that these lists may have not met the standard criteria individually and are purely based on the fact that their publication feature on this site. The publications were Guardian, Billboard, Complex, NME, Upr...

Re: Albums of 2019

CRITICS & WEBSITE LISTS Similar to the songs of 2019 I have scoured all music and culture related sites (both acclaimed and unacclaimed) to determine what I being considered the best of the year so far. The lists cover late May to end of July although the lists dried up particularly at the end of J...

Re: Songs of 2019

Re: Songs of 2019

As with the previous two years, I have compiled half year lists from publications (some acclaimed, some not) covering end May to last week. 41 lists in all of which 11 are AM eligible. No runaway leader this year but interestingly the number 1 song for 2017 and 2018 (Humble and This Is America) ende...

Re: EOY 2018 Songs Spreadsheet Updates

The Middle is listed three times under the below names:
Maren Morris
Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey
Maren Morris, Zedd & Grey

6 appearances in all for a song regularly featured in the 'worst songs of 2018' lists. A case of love it or hate it!

Re: Songs/tracks of 2018

ColmD, did you have the chance to update this?[/quote]

Completed at last. The lists run up to Aug - 63 in all. Did not include lists that were explicitly genre related as that would tip the scales. No change to the top 4 from the last update.

Re: Albums of 2018

Here are the albums listed in order of appearance up to 5 lists As many of the sites are entertainment and cultural sites th...

Re: Songs/tracks of 2018

Similar to last year, and against better judgement (!) I have been looking at online lists for best songs of 2018 (so far). I started from the last week in May up to end of June for the purposes of this list. I will be updating throughout July and providing the final version at the beginning of Augu...

Re: EOY 2017 - Critics' lists

Metacritic pulled together 334 critics lists for 2017. Criticstop10 pulled together 850 lists so is a broader representation of year end film lists. https://criticstop10.com/ It does not give a breakdown of the lists as far as I can see nor does it calculate similar to AM. Purely number of lists. Th...

Well done Henrik on the update and the huge task in increasing the number of albums/songs over the period which cannot have been easy. I cannot find the topic where the list of new songs added is located so if there is a final list of all new songs added to this update that would be great. Also kudo...

Re: Songs of 2017

[ Overall, I think the list includes a lot more poppy songs that we'll see at year end - especially with "Shape of You" placing so high - but overall it's a good mid year consensus with a long of songs that I think will place high at year end. Most of the lists covered all genres but there were a f...

I'm sure someone could show me how that can be done in a fraction of the time, but for now here are the top 50 with the number of appearances in brackets. Kendrick Lamar ...

Re: EOY 2016 Songs Spreadsheet Updates

The Poptimism comment is interesting and I noticed a trend in the last few years toward perceived pop acts within the EOY list. Drake is definitely the cheerleader for male R&B (remember late 90s/early 00's male R&B , I'll take 2010's over that any day - D'angelo excluded of course) and the change i...

Re: 1001 Songs..Before You Die

Yikes. A big file though at 10,000 + songs that shouldn't be a shocker. If it ever came to it, it would be great to see though prob as a google spreadsheet - something externally available as it may be too big to post here!

Re: 1001 Songs..Before You Die

One thing I've wondered is whether you have a full list with all sources listed (the 2012 file includes 4 sources). Similar in concept to the year end files or is that too mad of a concept?!!

Re: Rumba (Finland) Year End lists 1990->

Petri, do you have the 2000 and 2001 lists available by any chance? If you have a screenshot but not transcribed then that's ok. If I am correct, the 2003 and 2005 lists were never used in AM which is why they didn't appear in the songs spreadsheets on the site for those years when I did them up way...

Re: POPMATTERS Country's Top 100

I saw this list recently and was going to include but found it had been suggested before as above. If it is being excluded due to it's focus on one genre, how do the other country lists fare. I'm referring to CMT's 100 and 'Heartaches by The Numbers' which are specific to country and are important l...

Re: Film Sites

Metacritic which also aggregates album reviews. Rotten Tomatoes is the most famous though I tend to use their average rating rather than tomatometer. MRQE is pretty good too. To give an idea of the amount fo reviewers it covers, I use 12 years a slave as an example Metacritic rated using 49 reviews ...

Done. I've included the lists at the end of the columns. No formulas changed...as I haven't a clue how it's done.
I haven't deleted the lists that were to be removed as per one previous post. I'll leave that to you to decide. Let me know if you need any more changes.
