Sharon den Adel! Didn't think or would dare to have guessed that someone else voted for her. Within Temptation doesn't always work for me, but her vocals never disappoint.

I thought that there was more love for French singers here and that therefore Barbara would do better. Especially after that one album of hers did rather well in last year's Moderately Acclaimed Albums game.

And that's it for today; I wanted to make sure to catch up after falling behind yesterday.

My schedule for this is 25 artists a day until the top 100, where I'll switch to 10 artists a day. I want to add quotes (not lyrics) to the top 100, but I don't trust sites that list famous quotes, so I'll both have to find a good quote and then verify they actually said it.

*Céline Dion. Keep calm. Don't let other people know how terrible you really think she is. Yes, it's hard. Yes, she is the worst. Yes, she is one place above the woman who might be called one of the inventors of rock & roll. No, she has no talent outside of belting. But this is neither the time nor the place to get upset. Just keep calm and think about all the great women who still have to show up. No, don't think about the similar Whitney Houston either. Someone with actual talent. Yes, there you go. You can take a breath now.*

BleuPanda, I don't think anyone has ever taken on a bigger project at AMF than three major polls back-to-back-to-back and they all look amazing. Keep your head up, you're in the home stretch now!

I want to note, there are probably going to be artists where I ask why they're here; I'm not going to be asking it as a way of putting that artist down but out of genuine curiosity. The number of votes at this level mean nothing is that significant, but when we get to the point where someone has ten votes but nothing in either of the other polls (obviously excluding women who are part of mixed gender bands), I will be curious to know why. I simply might not know something else important about them.

So the (I think) only woman credited on 3 AM top 100 songs is not even in the top 250...

To be honest, I have gone back and forth between posting a reaction on Céline Dion's placement or not. Mostly because I know skittish this forum can be at times about negative commentary on artists or their works. I hoped that the exaggeration in words and style were enough to make clear that it is a personal reaction by me and is not directed at any member here. "Personal taste" also means not liking some things. I'm also very open to any writing on why Céline Dion is great.

Like BluePanda I'm interested in why people like something, whether it's acclaimed artists I love myself or critical outcasts. I'm equally curious as to why people don't like them.

And in the case of Céline Dion and me there is a big backstory. It's not based on just knowing her hits of the nineties. It's based on being familiar with her whole catalogue up to roughly 2010, including bootlegs, live recordings and whatnot. You see, my sister was/ is an obsessive fan of miss Dion and used to literally hijack every radio player in the house to play Céline Dion and when she moved out you couldn't visit her or be in the car with her without this music being forced on to you. Now she has a family live this has toned down considerably. But it gave me enough time to listen to Céline Dion and the more I heard, the more I disliked her. Not just because of the circumstances mind. I think many people here are not familiar with her "rock phase" that happened after her stardom faded somewhat. Or with the seemingly endless barrage of covers of classic songs that she all turned onto the same shouts of her voice. The more I heard, the more it became clear that even her hits in her "peak" period were basically the same vocal trick and not based on anything resembling emotional attachment to the singing (and I noticed the same patterns in Whitney Houston, who I will probably always see as something of a stylistic doppelganger of Dion). When I heard that she play-backed in her extremely expensive Las Vegas shows and other concerts, she lost every shred of credibility for me.

This is a personal reaction. People who voted for Céline Dion have another attachment to her work. I just don't see how stating you don't like an artist is an attack on someone's taste and why there is a taboo here on disliking something (though admittedly this is a celebratory topic).

After going back and forth through the top 100 many times I still don't know who you mean. Is it a producer, band member, session musician or something like that?

Must be Ellie Greenwich, who wrote "Be My Baby," "River Deep Mountain High" and maybe one other song in the top 100.

I messaged Nassim about it, he said:
"Carol Kaye, she played bass in God Only Know, Good Vibrations, River Deep Mountain High and quite a few other songs ranked fairly high in AM (I'm a Believer, Wichita Lineman, These Boots are Made for Walking...) and also played guitar in at least one (Then He Kissed Me)."

I don't like most of the acts on these lists, and I especially don't like this Bjork person that most of you seem to worship.

I admit: I didn't know this and never heard of her name before. Session musicianship remains an overlooked field.

It's hard to believe that Sister Rosetta Tharpe already sounded rock 'n' roll in 1945 with "Strange Things Happening Every Day".
They give awards for that music? I thought just ear plugs. (Woody Allen in Annie Hall)

I was one of the voices that claimed about positivity vs. negativity but of course you (and everyone) are absolutely allowed to express your dislike about any artist, song or album. Moreover when your opinion is so solidly based on a deep knowledge of the artist (much to your regret in this case). I just have to admit that I never ventured myself into Céline Dion' work voluntarily, my only exposure to her was unintentional.

Excellent selection of pictures, BleuPanda! Except maybe for Gal Costa (poor Gal). Since you're selecting pictures with 480.313 of width, why not using pictures of the period when she was on her creative prime, like this one or this other one? You'll only need to put [imgsize 480x342] in the beginning of the first picture and [/imgsize] in the end. If you choose the second picture you should put [imgsize 480x330] before. It's not necessary to change it, of course, if you don't want.

I'm not sure if I'll get to anything today. Due to recent events, I've been inspired to try my hand again at making videos. I'm now working on starting a series where I discuss my favorite obscure films, exploring what makes them so intriguing, and I'd like to use as much of today as I can to work on it. And, like always, my Saturday evenings are already planned.

Many of the users here were youngsters when Britney was at her most popular, and it's hard to dismiss the sounds of your youth no matter how obviously manufactured it is. Generally, though, it seems like most of the love for her here is thrown behind just those two songs. Her 2007 album Blackout is rated a quarter-star higher than any of her other albums by RYM, but I rarely hear people talk about "Piece of Me" or "Gimme More" individually...

Hmm, if Hymie's going to react that poorly to his #9 falling so low, I'd hate to see what he thinks about being the only person to have their #1 receive no other votes...
