I'm really happy to see those songs by Muse (Bang Jan & sonofsamiam not fans) and Nick Cave (Bang Jan & sonofsamiam fans) get the kind of recognition that I think they deserve. Bang Jan & sonofsamiam live & work in different parts of the world, so probably not the same person. An anti-Muse conspiracy is possible; though Muse rather invite that both musically and lyrically.
Haha, I was wondering who here has the least similar tastes to mine between BangJan and sonofsamiam, but I didn't notice how similar their tastes were to each other's. There She Goes, My Beautiful World is the only thing we agree on so far - even though I'm not listed as a top fan, that's a great song. And I'm also happy for the general upward trending of Muse since I joined the forum.
A little anecdote on Missy Elliott - I first found this website on a Sporcle quiz years ago, and I had no idea that she was a critically acclaimed artist. The comments section was similarly shocked, and they basically dismissed the merits of this site because 'no method could possibly put Get Ur Freak On above every Pink Floyd song.' It was the biggest complaint anyone had with the list. Now I like Missy Elliott fine (I'm not one of the 'not fans'), but her poor performance here made me think of that.
For me, the song that was the most baffling when I first went through this site was House of Jealous Lovers. I seriously thought it had to be a mistake. I still don't think I've ever heard anyone else play that song in my life or anyone mention it besides on this forum. I think it's very strange and hard to get into, so I have no idea why critics think it's better than every song by Arcade Fire.
...Started writing that before realizing it was the second-highest ranked song that didn't make our top 150 (behind Kids), so I guess I'm not alone in thinking that. I'll echo Nassim's shock about Kids though. Maybe I'm the only one here who thinks it deserves its acclaim.
