Re: Albums and Songs of 1981 Poll

1981 is the only year since 1961 without a single album in my top 500, so I won't be making an albums list. Songs 19 | Joan Jett | Bad Reputation 27 | Stray Cats | Runaway Boys These are from 1980.

Re: Should Joy Division and New Order's "Substance" albums really be considered compilations?

The general rule I have used is that the majority of songs have to be released a) within the last few years and b) after the artist’s last album. All the songs before ”Closer” and ”Brotherhood” make these albums ineligible for AM.

Re: Best Ray Charles Songs - RESULTS

I am very confused that ”Unchain My Heart” is only bubbling under at AM. And even knowing that it’s not one of his most acclaimed songs, I’m surprised that it doesn’t make the top 10 here. Top 3 for me (though I have not listened enough to Ray to send in a ballot).

One minute into ”Running in the 90s” I was sure I would put it dead last (like almost everyone else, it seems), but then the furious tempo became irresistible. It’s the song from this batch that I find myself coming back too.
