Forum Poll: The AM Top Songs of All Time (2012 edition)

Postby sonofsamiam » Wed Jul 25, 2012 3:28 am

Hi all,

Evidently it's been over 2 years since we did this, so it's high time to see where our tastes have moved, and to see the influence of the forum's new blood. The songs lists definitely have more room for variability, so hopefully the results will be exciting!

Of course, in the end it's all about the discoveries found in individual lists. Because of this, I try not to be too strict with rules and parameters. Here's what I've got...

1. A list must have a minimum of 100 songs to be included, though I will count up to 500. More than 500? Post away! But only the first 500 will be factored into the results.

2. My definition of a "song" is very loose. Avant-garde jazz instrumental? Fine. Section of a classical piece? Go right ahead. Medley? That's where it gets tricky, especially with the dread Abbey Road medley. When in doubt, go with individual tracks on a CD / individual MP3s for sale. I'll look at any possible exceptions on an individual basis, as I don't want rules to cramp anyone's style. (I already think I'll break this rule with The Millennium's perfect "Prelude/To Claudia on Thursday" combo. So yeah, I'm flexible.)

3. Where I will cramp people's style is formatting. Please list artist first, and then song. Even more importantly, please use a common delimiter to separate...something like a "|" or a "/" is perfect. Of course, the classic 1. Artist - Song format is OK, too.

What I will not accept are Excel copies with no delimiters (ex. 1 Spice Girls Wannabe) or other very difficult formatting (ex. 1.The Archies-Sugar, Sugar). That's just a nightmare...be nice to me!

4. I'm likely going to use the following formula for scoring: 500*(1+100)/([placement]+100). It seems that this gives a nice balance between high scores and multiple entries. I'm open to suggestion, though.

5. I have a huge project I'm completing in October, so I'll leave this open for some time. DUE DATE: November 1.

OK, hopefully that answers all questions. GET LISTING!

No, post 'em all right here. Easier to manage, and much more interesting for the thread.

3. Where I will cramp people's style is formatting. Please list artist first, and then song. Even more importantly, please use a common delimiter to separate...something like a "|" or a "/" is perfect. Of course, the classic 1. Artist - Song format is OK, too.


SonofsamIam,
Do you need spaces with the entries?

In other words, should I format like A or B?

A) Some band name | Some song title
B) Some band name|Some song title

Just want to make it easy for you....thanks

You can definitely do that, and it would certainly help Moonbeam! However, I do hope to see the list itself in the thread.

I think I am going to go for top 800 this time (double the 400 I did last time). T1000 would be a stretch; I'd have to submit my list really late in the process to get there. It will be refreshing to watch this unfold without all the work compiling the lists--thanks so much, sonofsam.

That is a great list Henrik--plenty of esoteric songs mixed in with classic singles.

Yeah, REALLY looking forward to the Jackson 800 and the Henrik 500.

I'll go ahead and make an admission -- I've been working on a songs list for months, and am now in the process of whittling down from 4,100 to a clean 3,000. :whistle:

Hi again all -- I've been thinking about the points formula, and I wasn't necessarily happy with 500*(1+100)/([placement]+100), as I felt the lowest ranked (500) got too many points, while middle rankings (ex. 200) did not get enough.

I played around some, and think I found a good balance, even if it's not the most elegant equation. Basically, I add up the one above with the straight subtraction of 501 minus the placement. I feel at the end the results reflect both a proper weight to the top, a decent range for the middle, and enough points near the bottom where we still reward volume of mentions.

The formula I used is ((500*(1+100)/([placement]+100))+(501-[placement]))/2

Here are examples of points by placement:

1: 500.0
2: 497.0
3: 494.1
4: 491.3
5: 488.5
10: 475.0
20: 450.9
50: 393.8
100: 326.8
200: 234.7
300: 163.6
400: 101.0
500: 42.6

I feel good about this range, but wanted to elicit feedback. If no one objects greatly, I think I'll go forward with this one.



(Also, more lists please!)

If I assigned points "manually", I wouldn't give my #180 as much as half of #1's points. But this is your game sonofsamiam, and I'm happy with any formula that you prefer.

If this were albums, I'd say maybe make it steeper, but since this is songs I think that's about right. The difference between my 1st favorite and 100th favorite song is much smaller than the difference between my 1st favorite and 100th favorite album.

I'll probably manage a top 100, it's so much harder for me to make songs lists than albums lists.

Looking forward to this.

I'll probably aim for a top 250/300 and maybe 500 if I'm feeling energetic.

That pretty much sums up my reasoning. I figure that most of us here have heard tens of thousands of songs, so to even make a Top 500 is pretty heady company.

Plus, there is likely to be much less consensus across these lists, due to the sheer breadth of choices. I'm just hoping to find the exact right balance here.

Meanwhile, my own list is giving me fits! Henrik, your top 100 is immaculate thus far, really looking forward to the expansion.

I think you've made a small typo in exporting the file. It looks like you exported with sep = "t" instead of sep = "\t", which will make the file Tab delimited, and hence make separate columns when opened in Excel.

The following code should work:

write.table(display, row.names = FALSE, sep = "\t", file = "My Song List.txt")

A modest 200 songs only, but these are my absolute favourites. Most of the genres that I enjoy listening to made my list, except for classical music. I'm working on a thread about my favourite classical works and I would like to share it on the forum at some point, but it's basically impossible for me to compare early classical music with "modern" 20th century music.

sonofsamiam, thanks very much for running this poll. Based on what I've noticed on some of your previous lists, you might be pleased with my #1 choice, the touching and powerful "mother song" of all great contemporary songs. I hope it will do much better than in previous polls.

Wow Dan, your list is amazing! Almost everything is either in my top 100 that I posted above or in my gross list for my top 500. Well, except for 5-10 songs that I haven't heard that I will definitely listen to as well. Unless they don't totally diverge from the rest of your songs I'm sure I will love them too!

I gather from your list that Jacques Brel is now your favourite artist. Am I right?


Nicolas, it doesn't correlate with mine as much as Dan's does, but I really love your list too!
Everyone you meet fights a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.

Thanks Henrik! I’m pretty sure a few of the songs made my list because I discovered them through your decade lists on Spotify (especially some wonderful oldies).

And yes, Jacques Brel is now my favourite songs artist. The more I listen to his music, the more I love it.

First off, this is belated, but FANTASTIC list, Dan.

Also, I've done a complete 180 on my calculation methodology. I thought about it, and have seen the light.

The new calculation I'll use is 500*(1+75)/([placement]+75)

That will allot points as shown:

1: 500.0
2: 493.5
3: 487.2
4: 481.0
5: 475.0
10: 447.1
50: 304.0
100: 217.1
200: 138.2
300: 101.3
400: 80.0
500: 66.1

I think this will end up with more interesting results.

I may run the numbers with my initial proposal as well, just to see the difference. But the calculation above will be official.

VERY VERY welcome indeed. I now have the patience to listen to a whole jazz album (or a Zappa composition or something) and I feel like that's kinda in the right direction towards being able to listen to and appreciate classical music.

Making a songs list is so intimidating compared to an album list. The way I'm going about picking songs so far is to just go through my favourite artists and pick songs by them I love. But inevitably there's so much that's slips through...

Like the decade polls, I'm basing my list off the AM 3000 to make my vote count, plus it's far less time consuming. I have the 3000 down to 547 songs that I like, now I just need to plug them into Moonbeam's ranker and see how they stack up after a a couple weeks of entering 1's and 2's.

OK, sonofsamiam! I'll try to come up with five hundred until nov. 1 ... :) The list will definitely include more jazz this time. Rahsaan Roland Kirk and Archie Shepp! And that french dude Miles Davis hugged on a famous photo. And a few swedish songs as well. Happy hunting!

I thought you prefered Arthur Crudup's version?


No, I really prefer Elvis' version. But The Arthur Crudup one is great too, very different in fact.
My list is evolving. I have no idea about the final #1. For the moment I have ranked about 700-800 songs.

I'm surprised a lot of people seem to be making their lists from scratch. I've kept my list of favorites in an iTunes playlist ever since the last poll and update it pretty regularly. It's much easier that way!

i'm doing the same as Jackson. I have an ecxel list of songs. Three different "leagues". I've put league one and league 2 in Moonbeam's program and I'm progressively adding songs from league 3. I'm over 800 songs now.

I just keep a spreadsheet that I continuously update with all songs that meet my criteria of really, really good to great. There are about 6,500 in there currently. Then I have 2 columns -- one where I assign a general, gut-feel rank, and another calculated column that gives the true rank of the first column among the rest. I then sort and updated the non-calculated column until I'm satisfied. But at this point it's a living document, which makes life much easier. (Though the ranking remains hard.)

Postby Henrik » Wed Aug 29, 2012 7:51 pm

Until sonofsamiam announced this poll, the only all time songs list I had done was a top 200 for the 2005 poll. But through the years I have kept track of my top 15-20 songs from each year that I could pick from this time.

When this poll was announced, I came up with a new idea. I felt it was going to be too difficult to rank every song side by side for a whole top 500. Ranking 16 songs at a time felt about right and I created a personal pyramidshaped division game, with 16 songs in each division (=Spotify playlist). I picked 16 songs for division 1 and ranked them. Then I picked 32 songs for division 2 and divided them into divisions 2.1 and 2.2 based on release year, and ranked each set of 16 songs. I don't compare the songs in division 2.1 to the songs in division 2.2. Instead I just put #1 of division 2.1 as my overall #17, #1 of division 2.2 as my #18, #2 of division 1 as my #19 and so on. I then continued with divisions 3.1-3.4, 4.1-4.8, 5.1-5.16 and 6.1-6.32. The preliminary set of 6 levels equals to 1008 songs.
Division 1: #1-16
Division 2: #17-48
Division 3: #49-112
Division 4: #113-240
Division 5: #241-496
Division 6: #497-1008

(Your guess is correct. I haven't done much work on the site during the last month.)
Everyone you meet fights a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.

Emotions & Numbers - That's me!
