Post by Zorg » Sat Aug 02, 2014 10:20 am

1976 is here!


Post your list of your favorite songs and/or albums of 1976. The point scoring system is as so:

1. 50 points
2. 40
3. 30
4. 20
5. 15
6. 10
7. 9
8. 8
9. 7
10. 6

However, feel free to post lists much longer than just a top 15!

The deadline is midnight on September 1st, but I will be lenient if you're close to finishing a list.

To advance to the final list, songs/albums must have a minimum of 2 votes. In case of a tie, a tie-breaker will be set up.


EPs and compilations are not allowed. Quibbles about release dates will be settled by RateYourMusic.


Happy listening! :music-listening: :music-guitarred: :music-rockon: :happy-partydance:

Bad year IMO. Only one album that is on my 246 albums list, and even that is in the low end. So I'll post just top 5 songs.

1. Paul McCartney - Silly Love Songs
2. Boston - More Than a Feeling
3. Sex Pistols - Anarchy in the U.K.
4. ABBA - Dancing Queen
5. Fleetwood Mac - Go Your Own Way
6. ABBA- Knowing Me, Knowing You
7. Stevie Wonder - Isn't She Lovely

Edit: Didn't even remember Silly Love Songs is 1976... It ended up top 7.

Definitely a weak year. I just realized that out of the 691 albums I have in my rating system, only 7 are from 1976. The best albums this year are from other continents.

For some reason I had Zombie down as 1977 but it's 1976 in AM.

1. Fela Kuti - Zombie
2. Jorge Ben - Africa Brasil
3. Steven Wonder - Songs In The Key Of Life
4. Joni Mitchell - Hejira
5. Tom Waits - Small Change
6. The Modern Lovers - The Modern Lovers
7. Jean Michel Jarre - Oxygene
8. Ramones - Ramones
9. David Bowie - Station to Station
10. Bob Dylan - Desire

The only dirty stuff is in the spoken word intro. Once the singing starts it's the same as the hit version.

PSA: Zombie by Fela Kuti is eligible for 1976.

It seems it was released in Nigeria in 1976 - I assume that's Henrik's reasoning for making its year 1976 on AM too. Just in case some of you were thinking that Fela isn't available for this year. He certainly is!

On that subject. Will votes for Kate & Anna McGarrigle's s/t album be counted for 1976, or did I miss my chance last month?

Yes, Zombie is from 76. It was released in Nigeria on a LP with only 2 songs : the title song and "Mr Follow Follow"

Hmm, not so sure about Zombie. RYM, Discogs and Allmusic all have it filed under 1977. RYM and Discogs even have the Nigerian Coconut Records issue as a '77 release. Wikipedia mentions the Coconut version as a '76 release in the description, but the album is listed under 1977.

Third world album releases are headache inducing.

I had thought it was 1977 too, though that was probably having taken a quick glance at the wikipedia article years ago.

Anyway, I think the best thing to do is to take the earliest year that someone can plausibly argue for and be consistent with it. Since quite a few sites do put it under 1976, I'm going to stick to this.

Sorry DaveC, I think this counts as 1975. AM, Wikipedia, a certain RYM vinyl release and discogs all hold it as 1975. Though the headaches are not limited to the third world - this was 5th in the 1976 Pazz and Jop poll!

No, before that bit. He makes a suggestion to her about the next guy. He almost says the next guy you fuck, but, with tongue firmly in cheek, he pauses and goes with the next guy you make love to. I assume if he had dropped the f-bomb, the x-rated version would have become the xx-rated version!

About Fela, I use this discography made by a Japanese guy who seems to know his stuff. The Coconut recording is listed as 1977, precisely the last of a long series of albums issued by Fela that year.

But I do agree about the difficulty of dating African and other continents music. Maybe we should just agree about a theoretical year of release everytime there is a doubt.

It could have been worse. You could have been born in 1974, my birth year.

I just noticed something interesting. I just went back through the 70s polls to find anything that qualified for the finals that I hadn't heard. From 1970-1973, 0 albums, 1974, only Caught Up. Then three albums from 1975.

I wonder if it's just a coincidence or if there's just been a change in the last month or two to the way people are voting, and including things that aren't Anglophone and aren't necessarily toward the top of the AM list.

Look at the all-time ranking of the nth ranked album from each year (eg 20th, 25th...). '74 thru '76 just have fewer highly acclaimed albums overall, thus an increased chance of a less acclaimed and less heard album making the top 15 in our polls. In my case 3 from 1974 & 1 from 1975, but I bet there will be zeros again '77-'79.

Strange year. Kind of no man's land between the decline of funk, glam, art-rock, and the rise of (post-)punk. But mediocre, weak? I don't think so. There are so many exciting disco anthems and more gems out of the mainstream than in any other year of the seventies. And finally it's reggae's big year.

Such a pleasure to see another Michael Franks fan; unfortunately The Art of Tea came out in 1975.

I've been aware that the copyright says 1975, but most sources go with 1976. An album can be done one year but released the year after. It's weird that your #5 album by Heart is the one that I have to bring up because I forgot that it was released in Canada in 1975.

Looking up on discogs: http://www.discogs.com/Michael-Franks-T ... ter/118794

Seems to suggest quite conclusively that the album was released in 1975. Should I take Milton to be your new #15?
