The AMF Top Songs of All Time 2018 Edition: Results

Postby Sweepstakes Ron » Sun Sep 16, 2018 5:00 am

At long last, the results are in! This year, we have received votes from 62 participants, who voted for 19441 individual songs! (Admittedly, I took some liberties with the definition of "individual song", but I digress.)

So now, I will present the fruits of our collective efforts, so let's get ready to celebrate these 2000 amazing songs we've selected! Before we begin, though, there's a few things I need to share...
Feelin' good on a Wednesday

Some of the above songs were people's personal #1s – I have marked those songs as such.

It's past midnight where I am and I'm tired, so the real countdown will start in 12-18 hours. Unfortunately, I do not have the time to make a Spotify playlist. If you want to explore the list, you're all on your own.

So many songs I voted for, that were also voted for by somebody else, that still didn’t make the top 2000!! :cry:

Turning the argument around, thank you Sweepstakes Ron for posting all these songs as well! So excited for the rest! :happy-partydance:

I am truly glad with the results so far. A lot of songs that I thought wouldn't get any votes but mine, to my surprise, were actually voted by other people too! That's fun!

The moment you realize you forgot to include Fleetwood Mac on your list :( looks like enough people voted in my absence though! Also cheers to whoever voted for all the great Sabbath singles that made it on!

I wish I had voted for "In the Hall of the Mountain King". I forgot to consider classical when I made my list, and that is my favorite classical piece. MIght have been enough to push it into the top 2000.

Sweepstakes Ron, did some people list "Dance or Die", "Faster", and "Locked Inside" as a suite? I had them all separate on my extended list.

Indeed, but it is bittersweet: there are some songs I'm very happy to already see appear as I thought no one else would have voted for them, yet here they are. Other times there are songs I thought were a lock for the top 2000 (or even 1000) that already fell off. I also noticed some that did actually make the list 3 years ago. We are in for some upsets, especially if some supposed locks are already unlocked. It will be exciting to see what took their place.

Yes, andyd1010 voted for them as a suite (Toni did so as well in 2015, but he did not submit a list this year). I'll admit, I sort of lucked out on this one as nobody else put more than one of the individual tracks on their lists, so I didn't have to intervene.

They do sort of seem like a suite given they run into each other. I don't envy the position you are in having to contend with all of these decisions!

I do plan to add the years eventually, but I didn't prioritize it. When I release the spreadsheet at the end, I'll make sure it includes the year so you can use it for whatever data you need.

The quote cracked me up! :D

Also, what formula did you use to determine points? I'm trying to keep track of how many points I assigned to each range of the resulting list, and I was using a formula posted on the ideas thread for this poll that had a max of 500.

Looking great already. Many bubblers or unranked songs made it, which is fascinating as the AM list is 5 times as long as this one. And it is strange to see something like L.A. Woman show up already.

Is anybody making a playlist? I usually would do it, but I'm already busy on the other one based on the AM albums.

The quote cracked me up! :D

Also, what formula did you use to determine points? I'm trying to keep track of how many points I assigned to each range of the resulting list, and I was using a formula posted on the ideas thread for this poll that had a max of 500.

Same formula, just replace the 500 at the beginning with 100. I just thought 100 as the max looked better.

The quote cracked me up! :D

Also, what formula did you use to determine points? I'm trying to keep track of how many points I assigned to each range of the resulting list, and I was using a formula posted on the ideas thread for this poll that had a max of 500.

This formula gives really high weights to songs near the top of lists. It seems a bit odd perhaps that a song with 2 votes is ahead of a song with 8 votes. I’m not against this though - it means we’re up for more surprises, far from just a list of the music we’re exposed to.

Also, is ”Psycho: A Suite for Strings” a way of collecting votes for different Psycho tracks? I take it that not everyone voted for ”Prelude”?

Oh, I agree with the formula - I'd rather a steep curve like this be used to summarise what users here really LOVE.

Okay, it appears I may have caused some confusion by not being specific enough. The formula in use for this poll is 100*(1+125)/([position]+125), with 100 points for a 1st place vote. With this formula, a 1000th place vote would get 11.2 points. This is actually considerably LESS steep than previous polls. After all, if the individual lists are being expanded from 500 to 1000 so that people can give more voice to more of their favorites, it wouldn't make sense to reduce the bottom half of everyone's list to statistical noise. An even steeper formula would probably be more "interesting", but that's not exactly what I was going for.

This formula gives really high weights to songs near the top of lists. It seems a bit odd perhaps that a song with 2 votes is ahead of a song with 8 votes. I’m not against this though - it means we’re up for more surprises, far from just a list of the music we’re exposed to.

Also, is ”Psycho: A Suite for Strings” a way of collecting votes for different Psycho tracks? I take it that not everyone voted for ”Prelude”?

Yes, Brad voted for "Psycho: A Narrative for String Orchestra" on his list. The performance of several tracks of the Psycho soundtrack as a suite is, indeed, a thing. So it is one vote for the actual suite combined with three votes for "Prelude" and one vote for "The Murder".

Oh! Two spanish language classics in the Top 2000 so far.."Te recuerdo Amanda" and "Besame mucho" :D

Sad there's no spotify playlist but it's nice to get one for the bubbling, just an observation. On the playlist, there's a mistake with the song 2006th. It's "Teenage dream" :mrgreen:
