Nice placements for St. Elmo's Fire and Golden Hours. I thought the latter might be much higher from scanning the individual lists but not bad.

Up the Junction was one of my favorite discoveries from this poll process. It debuted around 220 on my list and I could see it going higher next time. It's just such a jam, and almost every line is meaningful and memorable.

Looks like "The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness" outperformed a lot of other, more high-profile 2017 tracks - thrilled for it.

How Do You Sleep by LCD Soundsystem was the song I was worried about being missed earlier; didn't expect there to be an unlisted vote even higher than my own! Really happy with its placement.

I think we've exhausted 2017 now that "How Do You Sleep" has shown up. So the question of what the top new song for this poll is either from 2016 or late 2015. I imagine the song will be by David Bowie or Beyonce, unless I'm forgetting something obvious.

beautiful music about masculine objectification

Great, neither looks like "Carpenters"

[991] King Crimson | Starless

I've heard this song a lot in the last few days.

I love the placements of "True" and "September."

I'm surprised at the low placement of "Man's World." One of the best instrumental openings ever in my opinion.

Polish music legend Czesław Niemen kind of ripped it off on his most famous song, "Dziwny Jest Ten Świat". It's an amazing track nontheless if you're interested.

Although I don't included in my list (almost), I'm happy with the "The Middle" placement.

Shit, I was found out! But I only did it go give the playlist at least a small measure of credibility and respectability.

Then again, Cake's version will probably show up in the top 100 (or else at #409), so I might add it later. I have put Gloria Gaynor in its place.
