I'm hoping "Crystalised" is only so low because some people excluded the xx because they aren't purely female.

Not so sure, it only made it to #15 on the 2009 poll.
A lot of us love the album, but we don't seem to agree on which songs are the standouts.

Surprised Rock Lobster got that many votes. I love the song but I didn't vote for it : it's written by 2 men and sung by one so I didn't consider it eligible.
I did vote for Private Idaho, where the 2 women are more prominently featured.

Songs by The XX definitely seem to have a history of underperforming here; I always expect them to be a forum favorite when they're not.

Rock Lobster was pushing the limit on what qualifies here. I wouldn't vote for it in this situation, but the standout part of the song to me is the weird animal noises which are performed by the women in the band, so I wasn't going to remove it.

Never heard of this version before. Cher had the hit here, and the much better version IMO. Was this a hit in Europe or something?

Why no quote for this one? It has lyrics. Very good ones I might add. Pretty much every line is memorable. I would pick this one:

An der Themse grünem Wasser
Fallen plötzlich Leute um
Es ist weder Pest noch Cholera
Doch es heißt: Mackie geht um.

Or if you want to keep it shorter:

Und Macheath, der hat ein Messer
Doch das Messer sieht man nicht.

This version became popular decades after it was recorded when it was featured in the opening credits of Kill Bill: Volume 1. Personally, I prefer Cher's version as well.

It wasn't, but has become more well known over time. It's appearance in the film Kill Bill is probably part of the reason, as Sweepstakes Ron already said. To compare, Nancy Sinatra's version has over 43 million more listens than the one by Cher on Spotify! That is a huge difference. Cher's is good certainly, but I think the minimalist approach of the Sinatra version give it more drama.

Let me suggest the following for "Flight of the Pelican":
Speak to me words don't give no fancy meanings,

I remembered Robert Christgau comparing Randy Newman's lyrics disfavorably to Threepenny Opera (and he's given Newman, not to mention Steely Dan, A grades and an A+).

"Even in translation (the only way I know them) Brecht's fifty-year-old lyrics retain an ironic fervor that makes tough-minded moderns like Randy Newman or Fagen-Becker sound attenuated and cerebral" -- New York Shakespeare Festival: Threepenny Opera [Columbia, 1976]

Anyway, here are the lyrics, by way of Marc Blitzstein's 1950s translation.

Oh, the shark has pretty teeth, dear.
And he shows them pearly white.
Just a jack knife has Macheath, dear
And he keeps it out of sight.

When the shark bites with his teeth, dear
Scarlet billows start to spread.
Fancy gloves, though, wears Macheath, dear
So there's not a trace of red.

On the side-walk Sunday morning
Lies a body oozing life;
Someone's sneaking 'round the corner.
Is that someone Mack the Knife?

From a tugboat by the river
A cement bag's dropping down;
The cement's just for the weight, dear.
Bet you Mackie's back in town.

Louie Miller disappeared, dear
After drawing out his cash;
And Macheath spends like a sailor.
Did our boy do something rash?

Sukey Tawdry, Jenny Diver,
Polly Peachum, Lucy Brown
Oh, the line forms on the right, dear
Now that Mackie's back in town.

The English translation is great (and I love the Bobby Darin version), but they still omit the nastiest lines. The German version is really, really dark. And it is still a comfortable piece compared to Seeräuber-Jenny (Pirate Jenny in English). I'll never forget the first time I heard that through the Nina Simone cover. It gave me the chills.

Call Me Maybe and Rid of Me this low is pretty shocking. Especially Call Me Maybe -- I thought it would do better given the success of other pop songs?

This song was brought to my attention, so I was very interested in hearing it. I didn't get to hear this song on the best sound system, so I might have missed some aspect of the production.
This is a very dramatic song. Think of the most dramatic song you know, and I bet this song is more dramatic. This is probably the most dramatic song I have heard recently, by a factor of 10. In terms of the aesthetics of the song, I would compare it to that of "Ne me quitte pas", which has a similarly quiet, foreboding quality with heavy drama, a feeling enhanced by a whispery, spoken-word-esque vocal delivery in both songs.
Drama is not a bad thing. In fact, probably most of the music I love can be classified as dramatic. But there are a couple of things that keep me from falling head over heels in love with this thing.
For one, correct me if I'm wrong, but this song just straight up uses the piano stylings of Beethoven's "Moonlight Serenade"? You can call it sampling, but man, it's so obvious. At least be a bit more subtle. I've always been wary of this kind of overt sampling. If you are this obvious with it, I feel like there should be some sort of tongue-in-cheek nature to it.
Which leads me into the second issue. The drama is seriously overwhelming. Because if it is tongue-in-cheek, the Shangri-La's are skilled at hiding it. I suppose songs like "Leader of the Pack" and "Remember" have always seemed, to me at least, a bit cheeky and playful, so maybe I have just answered my own question. The one hint of cheekiness on "Past, Present, Future" is when Mary says "let's dance" or something, and then IMMEDIATELY a rushing, soaring orchestra swoops in. That part kept making me laugh, because it was so perfectly timed. That kind of sums up how I reacted to the song. The drama is so over the top, that it becomes preposterous (and thus enjoyable on another level).
I also understand that this song most likely hits harder if I have experienced the feeling that Mary is singing about, which I admittedly haven't. So I'll give it another 10 years, and I might be crying my heart out to this one.

P.S. Alright, so with a bit of looking-up, it is Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. Anyways, I just like having some fun pretending to be a music critic sometimes.

This has been great - thanks BleuPanda. How had I never heard of Natalia Lafourcade before? Discovered Tú Sí Sabes Quererme from the EOY poll and now discovered Hasta la Raíz here. They're both so good! I listened to a couple others off of Hasta la Raíz and they're not nearly at that standard, but does anyone have any other recommendations from her catalog?

Tidal by Fiona Apple was another great discovery. What an album! Would have been a lock for my top 10 if I had heard it in time.

I'm surprised that I'm the only one who put 1234 in the top 100 (and I have it at 12). It starts as this whimsical folk song and builds into a sweeping epic. I've never heard anything like it. There's not much that gets me going like that song does from her last "You know who you are" until the end. Absolutely love it.

I think all her albums have good songs. I used to recommend her album "Hu hu hu" from 2009. You could listen "Azul" or "Cursis melodías" and if you like that mood you listen to the rest of the album. Also she's going to perform this year in the Academy Awards with Miguel singing "Remember me" from the Coco movie Soundtrack.

So many of these were such judgment calls. I didn't include "The Chain" because Lindsey is on lead vocals and I always considered it more his song. (Even if, in reality, there was probably never a song where the entire band was more involved.) If I would've included it, it probably would be much higher, since I would've had it in my top 20.

jamieW wrote:So many of these were such judgment calls. I didn't include "The Chain" because Lindsey is on lead vocals and I always considered it more his song. (Even if, in reality, there was probably never a song where the entire band was more involved.) If I would've included it, it probably would be much higher, since I would've had it in my top 20.


It didn't make my list for the same reasons.

#152 is the highest song with 6 votes, and I'll probably stop noting those now as it grows increasingly irrelevant (the highest with 7 is actually 5 places higher than the highest with 8!).

I definitely didn't expect "A New England" to make it that high, especially after its poor performance in the 5873/6000 tournament a few years back.

Awesome placement for Feel You.

Very interesting to see Run Away With Me place so much higher than CRJ's other songs. I voted for it to, but surprised it beat Cut to the Feeling and really surprised it beat Call Me Maybe.
