Well, I'm betting on either Stairway to Heaven, or Satisfaction to come out on top.
Loved both these songs when I first heard them but I can go 20 years without hearing either. Didn't you people get sick of them?

OK, someone help me here. I don't get the love for the Smiths. Even bands I despise I get the appeal on why others love 'em but I don't get anything from the Smiths. I find them to be so boring beyond belief. I keep thinking I'm missing something and I re-introduce myself to their music every once in awhile but they just remain bland.

LOL! I'll say something about that later. But for now...

15. Radiohead - Paranoid Android-The "Bohemian Rhapsody" of the 90s. Tripped out and odd. This is Radiohead at their wackiest and most fun. Even if the song is in a depressing key and the lyrics don't make a lot of sense, it is a ride. Every track on OK Computer pushed the envelope. But this was their most ambitious tune.

14. Jimi Hendrix - All Along the Watchtower-While I put it as my #1 and it is a permanent fixture of my Top 10, I don't really have too many qualms with its placement. Of all the lists I provide you with, the songs list is the most fluid. Not necessarily in the sense that songs keep coming and going (though they do). It's more that I'll have a different #1 each time. I think this is definitely my favorite Hendrix--And Dylan--tune, but don't be surprised if I go with "Smells Like Teen Spirit" or "Bohemian Rhapsody" or something else next time.

13. The Beatles - Strawberry Fields Forever-The other song I didn't vote for in the Top 20. Yeah, I miscalculated when I wrote of "Waterloo Sunset". It actually doesn't rank high on my list of Beatles tunes. Even though it sounds pretty unique with the sitar and somewhat trippy atmosphere, I never was able to jam to it. I like "A Day in the Life" much better.

12. Joy Division - Love Will Tear Us Apart-It would appear I mis-predicted the highest song of the 80s but almost got this song exactly right. This is a heartbreaker and a fitting eulogy for Joy Division. The band became popular just as Ian Curtis died, and it is even more tragic as a result. You rock, Ian!

11. The Clash - London Calling-Standard punk. Crisp and clea production with Joe Strummer's angry vocals. One of the hardest, rawest songs ever made. I rock out every time.

10. Michael Jackson - Billie Jean-Highest song of the 80s! Not a bad choice. I think it works for establishing MJ as a pop star. Good choice.

9. The Rolling Stones - Sympathy for the Devil-Innovative and detailed. This is textbook 60s. Protest, anti-war, anti-authority. But I prefer "Gimme Shelter" and "Paint It, Black"

8. Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit-It's gonna be "Like A Rolling Stone" at #1. If Nirvana couldn't cut the mustard, Dylan can. AS for the song itself, it seems the 90s have the most consensus for the decade's best song. This song was more than a song, it was a rally call. It was a step for the youth and a shout against humdrum Middle America. Good call.

7. The Rolling Stones - Gimme Shelter-Catchy and another anti-war song. When I did my thesis project on Vietnam-era music, I cited this song specifically.

6. Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven-The song with continuous airplay, downloads and streams. Legend has it it's always playing somewhere in the world and has been continuously on someone's stream or radio for 44 years now. The best part is the solo. The way it builds set a precedent for soft-loud-soft songs after it.

So it's "Like a Rolling Stone", "A Day in the Life", "Good Vibrations", "Born to Run" and "(Sittin' on) the Dock of the Bay"? I feel it's Bob Dylan for the win but all are deserving of a Top 5 spot. The first four broke grounds and conventions on how a popular song is constructed but "Yey!" for "Dock of the Bay" going up this high on a simple but powerful song that seems like the odd one out of the bunch.

I think the fifth song too kinda broke at least some ground. Like at least for Redding it was surely a huge step into a new direction when he didn't go all energetic in the end, but just started whistling. I don't know if it influenced other artists, but I like to think it did, at least artists within Redding's own genre.
I feel like that

5. Otis Redding - (Sittin' on) the Dock of the Bay-One of those sad songs with a deceptively happy tune. Always makes me think. I actually think the song benefitted from the whistling.

4. Bruce Springsteen - Born to Run-Who doesn't love this. There's a reason why it established Bruce as a singer. Highest song of the 70s and really good. That's all I really have to say.

3. The Beach Boys - Good Vibrations-As you can tell, I'm kind of at a loss for words now. I'd just be saying "it's good because it's good" just like the last two and inevitably the Top 2. But this song is good and I can see why it's a fixture of our polls.

Oh man! I love ya, Beatles. But can you cut It? I dunno. Interestingly, neither of these songs got any #1 votes from us.

OMG! What a birthday present this was!

2. Bob Dylan - Like a Rolling Stone-Our eternal standby. I can see why people hate this song--Dylan does sound like he had a cold recording this--but I like the concept. Once again, the concept becomes relevant when applied to our modern reality TV culture. The duality and juxtaposition of the glamour life and poor life was a nice touch. Bob wrote a really good song here.

1. The Beatles - A Day in the Life-A very odd song. Probably the trippiest the Beatles got. I think most of the praise Sgt. Pepper gets is due to this song alone. The way it tells a story and also encapsulates Cold War paranoia and depression makes it a product of its time, but the nondescript lyrics and the sweeping orchestral backup also makes it timeless. The rising vocals always make me feel like I'm moving to another world, and that last note probably sends chills down everyone's spines. My favorite Beatles song for a reason. Will likely always be at least #3 on my list.

Thank you BleuPanda and all the participants. This poll just gets better and better. I love more and more songs and I'll be sure to stick around.

OK, someone help me here. I don't get the love for the Smiths. Even bands I despise I get the appeal on why others love 'em but I don't get anything from the Smiths. I find them to be so boring beyond belief. I keep thinking I'm missing something and I re-introduce myself to their music every once in awhile but they just remain bland.
One's enjoyment of The Smiths is directly proportional to the amount of romanticism and angst you can tolerate in pop music. When it comes to The Smiths, I think it's safe to say that their biggest selling point is their lyrics, and Morrissey's lyrics have a rather extreme "sad sack, woe is me, life is miserable, love isn't meant for me" mood to them, so if that mood is a major turn off for you, that may be why it's hard for you to connect with them. As for me, I happen to think Morrissey is one the finest songwriters in all of popular music, and his ability to construct pithy (and oftentimes rather humorous) lyrics that encapsulate the feelings of rejection, lovelessness, and other teenage-esque angst makes him something of a modern day Oscar Wilde in a way. Consider my favorite lyrics of all time, on the song "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out"-

"And in the darkened underpass I thought 'oh God, my chance has come at last!' But then a strange fear gripped me and I just couldn't ask."

In just 27 words Morrissey has captured an experience that it would have taken anybody else a paragraph or two to describe, a scenario that should be relatable to anyone, you have the object of your affection sitting right next to you, all it will take to make her (or him) yours is to just ask them dammit, and just when you think the perfect moment comes, you start to second guess yourself, the moment slips away, you freeze, and then you hate yourself for it. Or how about this lyric from "How Soon Is Now?"-

"There's a club if you'd like to go, you could meet somebody who really loves you. So you go and you stand on your own. And you leave on your own. And you go home and you cry and you want to die."

Who can't relate to that?

But not only are Morrissey's lyrics concise bursts of angst, there's also a certain level of refinement to them, references to Caligula, Shakespeare, George Eliot, and others abound, making Morrissey easily one of the most literate songwriters in popular music.

But even if you aren't convinced by Morrissey's lyrical prowess, the guitar work of Johnny Marr is almost as strong of an argument in favor of The Smiths. Marr's guitar work is constantly underrated, but the signature sound he pioneered with The Smiths really gives the "jangle" to "jangle pop". One listen to a song like "This Charming Man", with its iconic opening guitar riff, should reinforce how clean and, because there's really no better word to use, "jangly" his guitar work sounds. A listen to "How Soon Is Now?" should demonstrate just how far Marr was willing to take sonic experimentation with his instrument. While the signature guitar sound of "This Charming Man" may have influenced countless bands, there really is nothing out there that sounds quite like the soaring, atmospheric sound of the guitars on "How Soon Is Now?".

I'm not sure if this post will make you a believer in The Smiths. But I do hope that it's helped you gain some insight into why they are such a beloved band. If I could suggest anything, besides actually listening to their music, it would be to read some of the lyrics to their songs. As you're often bored by their music I fear you may be missing out on some of the finest lyrics around.

Awesome work done here BleuPanda! Nice to see the highlight (non-single) on arguably the greatest album ever made gets its chance on the spotlight. Especially love its closing minutes. No doubt, the Lennon-McCartney collab's greatest piece. Overall, good job everybody for this list that puts Rolling Stone, Spin, Mojo, NME & others to shame, haha!

P.S. I wonder if there's an icing to this cake like stats on the artists with most songs, albums with the most entries, representation per decade, etc.

BleuPanda, thanks for taking the risk of giving yourself a few premature grey hairs by hosting this poll. Congratulations on a good-looking presentation and well-paced, thoroughly entertaining rollout. It was excellent.

I really like our list. And although nobody chose "A Day in the Life" as their #1 song, it somehow feels appropriate that it is our consensus favourite.

Thank you Nick, for the descriptive narrative on the Smiths. I shall delve into their lyrics. It took me awhile to get into Love - Forever Changes and now it's a top 10 album for me.

Thanks for performing this Herculean task, BP. A lot of the classics that finished high were somewhere in my top 500. For some of the more recent songs I wonder if they will still be popular 20 years from here. I will listen to the songs I didn't know yet.

Nothing happens, Zombeels. To me Radiohead, for example, does not excite me at all. But I do not heal the disease. I simply put a Smiths album (any), and I live, I feel, I cry, I scream, and I dance!

Congratulations, BleuPanda! Excellent roll-out, excellent choices of pictures and quotes (I did what Nick suggested, first reading the quote and then trying to guess the song), excellent playlist and excellent timing. BleuPanda, what about reviving (after a well-deserved holiday break) the game “Rank the Tracks”? I loved that game, it make me re-listen those albums under a different light.
And congratulations, Nick, for your post about The Smiths, one of the best answers to the "I-don't-get" posts that periodically show-up in the Forum. I wrote myself some of these answers, I remember one about "A Day in the Life" (yes, believe it, our mighty #1) that sadly it's now lost amidst the many files on my computer.

Amazing job, BleuPanda! :music-listening:
Do you plan to post the worksheet? It would be interesting to apply a lower value in the rank's position.

For me the lyrics are part of the Smiths appeal but not the main appeal. It's more the mood expressed by the melody. I don't know if this applies to you, but I think a lot of people don't understand why anybody would be into sad music or dark movies because they prefer art to be exciting and uplifting, and those people have a lot of trouble with bands like The Smiths.

To me A Day In The Life is just one of many good Beatles songs, I don't personally get why it gets singled out as one of their best.

Re: AMF All-Time Song Poll (2015 edition results)

Post by BleuPanda »

Next, here is the list with 'regular users,' which I think I made by removing people with less than 25 posts on the forum. The main point of this is to not exclude newbies and lurkers but rather explore what I feel the main point of a survey like this is, to see what our community has discovered throughout our years of actively discussing music together. The number to the right is how much they moved compared to the actual list. 45 user's votes were counted for this list.

One thing I like about this list is that more modern songs are allowed a bit more room in the higher ranks. This list has 4 2000s song in the top 25 compared to only 2 in the real list, including "All My Friends" climbing up six spots to #12 (I believe only one of the removed lists voted for "All My Friends"). Also, Frank Ocean's "Pyramids" becomes our new favorite of the 2010s.

Also note that Courtney Barnett's "Pedestrian at Best" ended at #1001 for this list, meaning my highest miss still ended up missing the list by an inch.

Wow. Those numbers add up to 248. Almost one-fourth of our top 1000 songs come from one concentrated seven-year period. As BleuPanda says, this isn't all that surprising, but it's startling nonetheless to see the results laid out so starkly.

I would upload the spreadsheet with all the information, but the file is too big for the forum to handle.

And that's everything I can think of posting. If anyone has any other questions, feel free to ask.

It got 427.2 points with 5 votes, putting it at 1439. However, I wouldn't trust anything sub-500 points to mean anything.

Fantastic results Bleu! Excellent presentation. I also agree with the previous comment that our collective list, overall, is better than anything the big critics polls could ever come up with!

Me too. Because we all had a hand in it and we seem to agree a lot. If you don't like the list, you have nobody to blame but yourself! Only kidding. Great job and fun list.

Aw, I did not vote for the #1. I regret nothing.

A lot to say about this. Probably will do so in the weekend. For now, thanks for the ride, Bleu Panda! And thanks everyone for voting, it's a great list. Am I being mean if I say the one with regular commentators looks just a little better?

To celebrate I made a Spotify playlist with the biggest unranked favorites by all the voters, that Bleu Panda listed at the beginning. Enjoy:



Not on Spotify:
King Crimson – Matte Kudasai
Game Theory – Mammoth Gardens
Tool - Lateralus

I’m missing Prince’s Something in the Water (Does Not Compute). Not my fault, Prince wants to make listening to his music as difficult as possible.

I don’t know how to do Music for 18 Musicians by Steve Reich. It’s an album, not a song. Any help Sonofsamiam (or anyone else)?
