I believe Digital Witness has already shown up, unless I'm incorrect.

It was just outside the top 1,000.

I still expect This Will Be Our Year to show up as well.

I say either Like a Rolling Stone or Teen Spirit could win this. With the new rules and high turnout, "A Day in the Life" is unlikely to repeat.

Of course, I COULD be completely wrong. Who knows. I'm terrible at predicting these things.

I'm going to raise this point here to avoid cluttering up the rollout thread.

This may be a very unpopular opinion, but I think our major polls are becoming too long. A rollout of 2000 songs, besides being a major undertaking for the host (and no offense, SweepstakesRon, you're doing a wonderful job) just takes too much time to complete and to sustain sufficient interest and discussion. Our current rollout is headed into its third month!

Now I don't have a horse in this race; for the first time in six or seven years I didn't submit a list. But I personally enjoyed rollouts more when they were in the range of two or three hundred entries, with an extended list and a database shared at the end. And as a former poll host, I appreciate that much of the work, as satisfying as the results may be, is boredom and drudgery.

Can I suggest for future poll hosts, that we start shortening the rollout, rather than trying to outdo our predecessor, or am I in a minority of one here?

And again, SR, this is not a reflection on the great job you're doing as the host of our current poll. Thank you for your hard work!

So looking at the individual lists it looks like All My Friends is maybe going to be the top song of the 21st Century on our poll, but I could have added that up wrong

Calling it here: if any song overtakes A Day in the Life at the top, it's going to be Bohemian Rhapsody.

My guess is that the following could pull off "shockers" and end up in the top 200:

190 (2015 rank)/3191 (AM Rank). Nina Simone - Sinnerman
224/1346. Funkadelic - Maggot Brain


Most disappointing faders could include:
444/354. New Order - Bizarre Love Triangle
463/1880. Arcade Fire - Afterlife (seems to have over-performed in the 2015 poll)
496/411. Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb
502/809. Foo Fighters - Everlong
1637/2861. Grateful Dead - Truckin'

Haven't seen all the lists, but, given the current results, I bet "Sweet Child O' Mine" will be in the top 50, and "Billie Jean" at least #8.

758/233. Mott the Hoople - All the Young Dudes*
1637/2861. Grateful Dead - Truckin'


Most of these have already shown up actually; I gave these a '*'. I actually still suspect Bizarre Love Triangle, Everlong and Comfortably Numb to still show up. Especially these latter two have a certain kind of popularity and familiarity that seems to do very well this time around. So from that list only Afterlife and Truckin' are likely lost.

And this is my last time visiting this topic for now, as I want to keep some surprises. I already skipped the big top 200 prediction above.

Henry, Suffragette City and Tom Traubert's Blues among others already showed up.

I think I may have the full top 200.

I'm good to run a predictions game for the top 100, once someone can help corroborate my picks.

I had a few senior moments apparently and did not update my records with the songs that placed from 801-900 in the 2018 poll in my earlier predictions :angry-banghead: .

“Running Up That Hill”’s huge jump probably means a huge jump for “Wuthering Heights”. A top 20 placement looks extremely likely now. Maybe even top 10?

Below is the Excel sheet where you can rank the remaining songs #1-100.

I removed "The" from the artist names, and added the songs' ranks in the 2015 All-Time Poll for convenience.

I was thinking of doing a simple formula: Summation[ (prediction - realrank)^2 ]. Lowest value wins. If someone wants a different formula, let me know.

Submit your predictions to markwy13@yahoo.com. Don't forget to tell me your screenname! Deadline is whenever SS Ron decides to start rolling out the top 100.

Good luck!

Thank you. As you were publishing the top 2000 I added the songs in an Excel spreadsheet and added the dates so that I memorize the ranking.

Now down to 30. I would be more surprised if any of these songs fell off the countdown than if they missed the Top 30. The only question now is the order.

It's crazy that the Beatles only have one song left, but Bowie and the Stones still have 3 each.

Great observation!

The reduced ranks of many Beatles songs seem to be an indicia of a resistance against popular Beatles singles among AM poll participants. There are a few extreme cases, e.g., Moonbeam, but the sentiment is fairly typical among the participants. That's why we see rather high ranks for more experimental Beatles songs such as Strawberry Fields Forever and A Day In the Life, but less enthusiasm for hits such as Yesterday, Let It Be, Hey Jude, A Hard Days Night, Help!, etc.

The poll participant infatuation with Bowie, Radiohead and Velvet Underground has been fairly apparent as well. Perhaps there is a detectable trend of diminishing infatuation with VU, but my impression on this last point may be incorrect because it aligns with my bias.

I am extreme in my distaste for The Beatles, for sure, but I think this forum as a whole is kind of extreme in their love of them. Looks like they will place 9 songs in the top 100, where AM only includes 4.

Hey Jude, Let it Be, and Yesterday all easily made the top 100; how high do you think they should be? Also, A Day in the Life and SFF being their top two isn't necessarily unique to the forum, it just correlates with AM. Some of the more conventional songs dropped but so did Tomorrow Never Knows. Overall, I think the trend is that some of our previous polls had 2 or 3 participants who had like 20-50 Beatles songs in their top 100, which this poll didn't have.

Well I guess I was wrong about All My Friends being our top song of the new millennium, very close though!

Funny how both that and Hey Ya! topped Crazy, which won our '00s poll not long ago.
