Re: A Bit of Help With My Listening List

Wow, what a brilliant idea! Except for one thing... do you have any way of automatically updating the values in the DM and YM columns, or do you have to manually update the values for each album in a given year/decade? That should be easy if you just sort by year, but I figure there might be a somew...

Re: Most Popular Songs of AM Top Songs of the Decades (60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s) (according to Spotify)

Another red flag is Moves Like Jagger. For such a massively popular song, it's hard to believe it's so low on the 2010s list. If that list was based on the Spotify playlist that I created, it may be because I inadvertently added "Moves Like Jagger" from an appearance from some random compilation in...

Great choice for #1. I have a continually updating songs list (sadly, I lost the data I used for the 2018 all-time poll, so I had to start from scratch - what should I do to prevent losing the new data?) but for album lists, I find it better to take things one poll at a time for now.

I wonder if this will push any 2010s songs into the all-time top 100. "Get Lucky" started out in there and then fell out, but it still has a strong lead in the current update, and I'm not sure how much these lists will push other songs ahead of it, or if it will land back in the top 100.
