AMF All-Time Song Poll (2015 edition results)

Postby BleuPanda » Wed Jul 01, 2015 11:34 pm

Hello and welcome to the Acclaimed Music Forum Top Songs of All-Time Poll. I hope everyone’s ready to party hard as we count down another 1000 songs. How many of your favorites have fallen completely off the map? What songs will take the top spot for each respective decade? Will anybody be happy with first place? Find out as I roll the results out in an excruciatingly slow fashion!

Some basic stats:
52 contributors, 10625 songs
formula: 500*(1+50)/([place]+50)

I unfortunately won’t have enough time to start the actual countdown until later this evening, but let’s celebrate those songs that barely missed the cut. Here are our 52 contributors and their favorite song that everyone else should care about a lot more (including 3 of our #1 rankings).

This one didn't make it even with the votes of Otisredding, Nicolas, and mine? It will not be because of the accent?

That's a great stat. It's a bit overwhelming always when someone has like a list of 500 songs and a lot of them I've never heard/heard only once. But like definitely I have time to listen to the highest song that someone's ranked that is a bit obscure. I will have to go through that list step by step in the following days.

Edit: Oh I see it's outside of the top 1000. No wonder some songs on that list I think I've heard before.
I feel like that

Now it's time for us to party and we will party hard. Here's a spotify playlist that I'll update as I post the results:


Fans this time will consist of everyone who mentions the song in their top 10, or the top three who have mentioned it in their top 100, and the top vote outside of the top 100 if it didn't receive that high of a vote.

For unranked songs from the 2012 poll, 'entry' represents a song that was eligible but didn't make the list, while 'new' represents a song released from 2012 onward.







Note: All songs through #603 are actually one spot lower on the ranking due to an error

And that's it for tonight. Any thoughts? I'm just happy "Stillness is the Move" managed to find its way here. Really sad to see "Svefn-g-englar" fall so much, but at least "Born in the U.S.A." tanked with it.

Except for the daydreamy Reveal album, the post-Bill Berry years were not especially worth it. Simple album track "Diminished" is inspired, along with "At My Most Beautiful," and that's really about it.

Oh, whoops. Just as a note for future entries: I'm kind of sort of entering the fans section manually because I'm not good enough at Excel to figure out an automatic process. For example, I might simply type the wrong name every once in a while. I had Live in Phoenix as 47 in the excel file, but I guess I just typed Listyguy because they're next to each other and I was scrolling too fast...

I made this template for Zorg and his 1970s poll earlier this year. You will need to use a lot of extra columns, but that is hopefully not an issue. Let me know if you have any questions.

Edit: Maybe someone could enhance the formula to sort the fans in ranked order?

Huge thanks BleuPanda! Awesome presentation! I love the Spotify list!

A minor error, that I only mention because it has an impact on JimmyJazz's stats: Lou Christie's "Paint America Love" is from 1972 and not 1992.

Edit: Oh, and don't you want to embed the Spotify playlist? Use spotifyplaylist instead of URL as the BBcode.
Edit 2: Oh-Oh, maybe it's because the spotifyplaylist code isn't working since Spotify started with https links. You need to remove the s in https.

The most surprising one I guess. Others like Blue Suede Shoes or Where Did You Sleep Last Night could seem odd too but I'm sure we'll see covers of them ;)

Happy to see songs I voted for (of course), especially I'm Not Done that made it with only 2 votes, Whole Lotta Rosie because AC/DC is not the most popular band around here and Int'l Players Anthem because I don't recall it doing very well on the decade poll; but also happy for some songs I didn't vote for but would have been in an extended list if I had made one, in particular Sleep (which honestly should have made my top 500), Shakey Dog and I Only Have Eyes For You

Not much I'm disappointed of, except the drop of Staring at the Sun and the low placement of Svefn-g-Englar (though I didn't vote for it and would rather have seen Staralfur even higher). And happy I made a late addition of SK's Entertain in my list
Some of the big drops, like Born in the USA or Hey Hey My My are really unexpected !

Great start Bleupanda! I really like the first feature with the favorites that didn't make it. Nice addition. I will go and listen to the ones I'm not familiar with.

And thanks Jimmyjazz for the in-between stats.

Yes, great start. Lots of listening to catch up to (as always). Something I like in particular I have to admit is the feeling when a song appears that I voted for but didn't expect to actually make it. Up til now those are the songs I'm noted as the biggest fan: Mykonos by Fleet Foxes, Sleater Kinney's Entertain and even David Bowie's Young Americans.

Wow, great start! I can't believe from my list that "Music for 18 Musicians" (or any of the sections of it) did not make this, but Ligeti's utterly terrifying "Requiem" did! :o So a little bittersweet from a modern classical perspective.

Also, pretty funny that "Party Hard" landed at 1000.

Other comments...

998. The Flamingos - I Only Have Eyes for You (1959) -- shocked it fell so much, glad it made it in
995. Squeeze - Up The Junction (1979) - wonderful song
985. TV on the Radio - Staring at the Sun (2003) - tough drop, it seems that TVOTR is falling off our radar a bit
982. The Chills - Pink Frost (1984) - it didn't make my 500, but it is great this is here!
981. UGK - Int'l Player's Anthem (I Choose You) (2007) - see above

972. Sufjan Stevens - I Want to Be Well (2010)
971. Ramones - I Wanna Be Sedated (1978) - I love the randomness of lists, that these two titles would be next to each other in the results...

968. The Beach Boys - Heroes and Villains (1967) - glad this made it!
962. Rachid Taha - Ya Rayah (1993) - one of my favorite things about the AM list is they are so overall representative, nice to see this here (again!)
960. György Ligeti - Requiem (1965) - as I mentioned above, YES! Do not play with the lights out.
956. Afrika Bambaataa - Planet Rock (1982) - :happy-partydance:
951. Tubeway Army - Are 'Friends' Electric? (1979) - see above
949. Ghostface Killah - Shakey Dog (2006) - so great that a hip-hop album track can hit our list
938. ABBA - The Winner Takes It All (1980) - nice to see a less obvious ABBA song sneak in
929. Sigur Ros - Svefn-g-englar (1999) - a precipitous and surprising drop!
925. Jeff Buckley - Last Goodbye (1994) - this is easily my favorite Buckley song and I'm always surprised it lands so low. Speaking of which, this was 924 last time, at least we are consistent.
920. Mahmoud Ahmed - Ere Mela Mela (1975) - fantastic!
918. Lou Christie - Paint America Love (1971) - double fantastic!! (even though it fell 257 places)
903. Santigold - L.E.S. Artistes (2008) - nice to see this one make it, looks like this will stand the test of time
901. Roxy Music - Virginia Plain (1972) - bit of a surprising drop

BleuPanda, you're doing a GREAT job with the roll-out! So much fun...

Then again, Ligeti's Requiem is utterly genius and one of my favourite calssical pieces too. Got introduced to it thanks to Kubrick, as with Ligeti in general. Probably my favourite 20th century classical composer by now. I didn't vote for Requiem, because I still haven't found a way to include classical music into these lists. Unlike albums, songs - or rather musical pieces - could be doable. Maybe I should start listing them in favourite artists list. Have never done that before, but it seems the most easy and logical list to add classical music to.

I'm gonna take a break for now. I sure wish songs from last year did a bit better, but 2011 also only had a few songs during the last poll. "Digital Witness" has to rise by the time the next poll comes around, and I'm sure none of us would have guessed "The Bay" would end up on the list back in 2012.

I'm doing a quick look at the ones that stand out.

Just Missed Out:

Tool-Lateralus: Yeah, I figured. Prog-Metal's just gonna be the genre I love but nobody else seems to care for.

Future Islands-Seasons (Waiting on You)-Surprised this missed out. Not only because I also voted for it, but it also won our EOY last year. I guess it proves my point grading songs holistically is different than by year.

Countdown Itself:

990. Metallica - Nothing Else Matters-Barely nicking the countdown. Happy to see it land here after I voted it identically last year.

976. Bob Dylan - Knockin' on Heaven's Door-Lowest Song for which I voted. Ironic since it jumped on my list from last time. My favorite Dylan song, but not a universal consensus.

960. György Ligeti - Requiem-Yay Classical Poll! It's the power of the mini-polls exposing people to underrated pieces such as this. I voted "Stella" myself, but no other "classical" or "modern classical" because I wasn't sure how they'd fit. No regrets though.

944. The Prodigy - Firestarter-Lot of major drops this time around. Also a lot of new songs from the past five years. Changing demographics or boredom? Not sure, but I think by the Top 500 we see the truly worthy ones.

929. Sigur Ros - Svefn-g-englar (1999)-Another very surprising drop. This was hugely popular and it's not like this was a flash-in-the-pan. It's been big for awhile.

923. Pearl Jam - Even Flow-All right. I could do this list for years and I don't remember it ever leaving my Top 25.

905. XTC - Dear God-Dangit! Hope "Senses Working Overtime" is higher.

885. Frank Ocean - Thinkin Bout You-It's not that new. I think it was at least out when we did the last one. Oh, well.

883. Green Day - When I Come Around
869. Green Day - Longview

My favorite Green Day song has been beaten by my second. They are close together, though. Impressed "Longview" made an entry.

858. Ritchie Valens - La Bamba-A significant climb by a somewhat older song? That's unexpected.

853. Cee-Lo Green - Fuck You-Another disappointingly meteoric drop from one of my favorites. I liked it last time because it almost matched up with my rating for it.

835. Thin Lizzy - The Boys Are Back in Town-One of my new entries makes it! I actually really liked this song for awhile but only recently felt confident enough to include it. Glad to see it here.

833. Duffy - Mercy-An entry I'm proud of. It's been hovering around the lower 400's for me since its release, but it has a aspecial place on my list.

820. Animal Collective - My Girls-This band doesn't promote any strong feelings either way. I understand on AM there's been a bit of a backlash against MPP, but I still have to play the neutral card for the song and album.

812. St. Vincent - Digital Witness-Wasn't crazy about it, but can see why it landed this high.

804. Kanye West feat. Paul McCartney - Only One-Bought into the hype and almost voted for it. Again, it may be my favorite Kanye song. So why didn't I? Simply, it's too new. I have to hear the song for another few months to see how it ranks.

Agree, it's the best way of enjoying the countdown! Listening to "Shangri-la" right now... :music-listening:

Have a look at attached file, column V. This is only for voting songs in top 10 and every cell requires a value (no vote means e.g. 999).

Starting to recognize more songs now.

To list them all would be a nightmare, so here are more standouts.

797. Green Day - Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)-A bit surprising considering I voted it somewhere in the middle of my list. But here is just fine.

787. The Alan Parsons Project - Old and Wise-Interesting. It's from the original Unacclaimed (and one which lost in the first round to boot) and probably won't be the last one from there. Still no 2.0's though. I wonder if any did make it.

776. MGMT - Electric Feel-Oh yeah! Love that this placed.

768. Radiohead - Just
766. Queen - We Will Rock You

One a dramatic drop and one an entry in a weird spot. I was sure both would be higher. I submitted votes for these songs also.

752. Michael Andrews and Gary Jules - Mad World -Must really love Donnie Darko!

723. Focus - Hocus Pocus-Oh my gosh! Really pleasant surprise here. I heard it a few summers ago and I mostly loved it because it's so wacky. And am I the only one who notices it came out around the same time as the eerily similar "Frankenstein"? I'm not sure which came first, but somebody has some explaining to do.

719. R. Kelly - Ignition (Remix)-ZZZZZZZ. Sorry guys, this is one of the very few songs so far I simply do not care for.

716. The Monkees - I'm a Believer-Happy to see it jump. A song I forgot about last time catapults into my Top 200 where it rightfully belongs. I guess 716 is okay for the AM demographic, though.

This was my fault. I had "Music For 18 Musicians" on my albums list and had meant to transfer it to my songs list, as well, but somehow missed it. I did have "Music For Mallet Instruments, Voices and Organ" at #372, so I didn't forget Reich completely. Still, "18 Musicians" in its entirety would've ranked in my Top 100, so it was quite an oversight. The good news is that I did help with the ultra-eerie "Requiem."

Great presentation so far BleuPanda! Since I love songs even more than albums, this is my World Cup when it comes up...

Also, what is everybody's thoughts on pacing? I was thinking of getting through the first 500 today and then slowing down a bit from there out, add a bit of stuff to make it more than just the basic facts. Is this going too fast, too slow, etc?

^^^That's fine.

Pacing has been relatively manageable. Not too fast, not too slow. Like Goldilocks, it is just right for me to keep up.

I was wondering abouthe stats, but then I figured what you said since you posted your stats just after the new batch.
