Picking one favorite song is impossible, but I ended up with Björk's Isobel. It's a kind of autograph song about her alter ego, a weird creature in the woods that comes into contact with humans.

In the meanwhile, Spotify is also promoting one of their own lists of female only tracks. Or to be more precise: Women of the World, so it is an international list. Purely focused on recent music. Listening to the first 10 tracks or so, I can say it is quite worthwhile, especially as something of an extension of our own list.

There's also the Smirnoff Equalizer, which shows the gender balance of what you listen to and can provide an 'equalized' playlist. I've opened a separate thread. http://smirnoffequalizer.com/

You know, I always thought Courtney Barnett was a bigger deal here. Both her and St. Vincent seem to be under-performing compared to what I expected.

"Green Light" was actually the highest song with 8 votes; the highest with 7 falls at spot #98.

Nice! I'm fairly close. I think I might have 1 or 2 wrong.

Just wondering, are there any people that want zero spoilers?

Donna Summer | I Feel Love
Judy Garland | Over the Rainbow
Kate Bush | Wuthering Heights
M.I.A. | Paper Planes
Mamas and Papas | California Dreamin'
Massive Attack | Unfinished Sympathy

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.


In general, I didn't include a song unless a female was on lead vocals or she wrote the song or both.

I'm pretty surprised "Sinnerman" fell outside of the top 10. Given it's recent surges in popularity, I was really expecting it to find a spot there.

Since making my list, I have added both Feeling Good and Sinnerman to my all-time top 300 - however, there's enough of a jump between #10 and #11/12 that even my additional high rank wouldn't be enough, I believe.

I actually didn't know Feeling Good until seeing the results and decided to check it out - instant classic, actually like it a bit more than Sinnerman.

Wow, I voted for all of the top ten. I'm surprised Miss Big Lips made it though. I originally had her at not much higher than #50 in the results.

That is a crazy high placement for Rolling in the Deep. I like the song well enough but is it really the #1 song on the list from the 2010s? And above Unfinished Sympathy, Heartbeats, and Glory Box? One of the stories of this poll is the Adele and Amy Winehouse re-appreciation movement.

That definitely surprised me as well. Could it be a slight demographic shift? Or perhaps the users are softening up more towards traditional pop styles?

I do believe there is a 2010s song still to come in the top 10...
