Yes, thanks Rob! I voted for it as well, and I discovered it from the 2015 poll results. Surprised to see two top-6 votes and nothing else! I hope more people check it out.

And thanks for all the hard work, Sweepstakes Ron! This has been great.

I know that the Pazz and Job polls used to keep track of an Enthusiasm metric, which was the total points of a song divided by the number of voters. Could be a fun metric to check out once the rollout is complete, if Sweepstakes Ron releases the full spreadsheet.

"It starts with this A minor chord, and then suddenly what you hear is not the theme, but the counter theme…But then, finally, when the theme arrives, it’s fabulous because it has this element of nostalgia. You have the feeling that you have direct access to the heart of Beethoven… There is something subliminal that makes this simply rhythm that we hear all the time… symbolize the full life."

Gonna guess this will be the highest ranked song with only three voters, and a big thank you again to Rob for introducing me to this masterpiece.


Last time it was the highest ranked song with only 2 votes (you could make the top 1000 that way back then). I kind of figured it wouldn't appear anymore, so I'm very happy to see that it got one more supporter. Next time the song should at least be the highest rank with only 4 votes. Or just make the top 10.

"Beginning with a pensive melody, the song swells into a tidal wave of choral moans, saxophone squeals and volcanic drum fills. Like much of Washington’s previous work, 'Truth' is incredibly opulent in its maximalist approach. The huge scale makes his music feel like a sacred offering in bleak times."

Really loved that last group. Good to see Truth, DNA, Right on for the Darkness, and The Good the Bad and The Ugly so high.

Shangri-La used to be a T500 song in this poll; I'm sad it fell so far. It's definitely one of The Kinks' best songs and a perfect example of a great rock composition from that era. I'll enjoy being a part of its cult following.

It's getting to the point where it's safe to say if one of my personal faves that doesn't get much love from others on AM hasn't placed yet, it's not going to place at a higher level.

I would enjoy seeing a comprehensive listing beyond the top 3000 if possible to see where the following songs ended up.

Some songs that I surmise will not place in the top 2500 include:

my 2nd fave / Who - Behind Blue Eyes / 1863 (likely will place, hopefully in the top 500)
13 / Eric Clapton - Let It Rain / 8465
18 / Utopia - The Ikon / NR
20 / Eagles - One of These Nights / 1561 AM rank (placed at 1062)
30 / Stevie Wonder - As / 3416
31 / Allman Brothers - Blue Sky / BU
32 / Todd Rundgren - I Saw the Light /1502 (placed at 1003)
35 / Eagles - Take It Easy /1913
36 / Who - We're Not Gonna Take It / 1775
38 / James Taylor - You've Got a Friend / 3920 (1076)
53 / Eagles - Best of My Love / 5070
54 / Utopia - Love Is the Answer / NR
61 / Todd Rundgren - Compassion / NR
67 / Genesis - Behind the Lines / NR
68 / Steve Winwood - While You See a Chance / 4363
70 / Santana - The Game of Love / NR
71 / Style Council - Boy Who Cried Wolf / NR
72 / Todd Rundgren - The Last Ride / NR
83 / Todd Rundgren - We Gotta Get You a Woman / NR
84 / Joe Jackson - You Can't Get What You Want / NR
85 / Santana - Smooth / 1429
86 / Yes - I've Seen All Good People / 1718 (small chance that this will still place)
87 / Don Henley - The Heart of the Matter / NR
89 / Red Hot Chili Peppers - Otherside / 3538
90 / Doobie Brothers - Taking It to the Street / BU
94 / Todd Rundgren - A Dream Goes On Forever / BU
98 / Moody Blues - The Story in Your Eyes / NR
99 / Pretenders - Show Me / NR
100 / Pink Floyd - Great Gig In the Sky / 3222
106 / Linda Ronstadt - When Will I Be Loved / 9832
111 / Lynyrd Skynyrd - That Smell / 2496
113 / Jim Croce - Time In a Bottle / 3241
117 / Todd Rundgren - Bang the Drum All Day / BU
118 / Steely Dan - Hey Nineteen / 4221
120 / Neil Young - Southern Man / 1551
134 / Bee Gees - How Deep is Your Love / 1564 (small chance that this will still place)
166 / Steely Dan - The Boston Rag / 7329
170 / Marshall Tucker Band - Heard It In a Love Song / 6680
171 / Joe Jackson - It's Different For Girls / BU
177 / Allman Brothers - Melissa / 9527
183 / Sarah McLachlan - Building a Mystery / 3991
189 / Beatles - Michelle / 3479
191 / Doobie Brothers - China Grove / BU
192 / Jr. Walker & the All Stars / 7653
193 / Guess Who - These Eyes / 4764
199 / Who - The Real Me / 4070
208 / Joe Jackson - Breaking Us In Two / BU
225 / Blood Sweat and Tears - God Bless the Child / 9309
228 / Style Council - Shout to the Top / 7660
234 / Fleetwood Mac - Over My Head / BU
240 / Billy Joel - My Life / BU
248 / Style Council - The Lodgers / BU
252 / Steely Dan - Deacon Blues / 1827 (small chance that this will still place)
289 / Steely Dan - Bodhisattva / BU
300 / Steely Dan - Pearl of the Quarter / BU

I've been pleasantly surprised with a few of these placing so far:greetings-waveyellow:

You are almost certainly correct. In the 2015 poll it came in at 236. My bet is that it comes in lower this time.

Threads like this are why this forum could really use a ‘jump to first unread’ feature. :)

Why We Build The Wall charts well but a little lower than last time when it ironically landed right at 666 (Before a fix to a mistake moved it a few spots).

Well, it seems that at least my #1000 - Follow Your Arrow - has made it.

Like many I am surprised about some low places, but during the last 100 or so the one that specifically stood out was The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down. When I saw that the highest vote was only #285 I immediately thought "But wait, didn't I place it much higher than that?" I checked and I had it 14 places lower...
The Band tends to do badly on polls here (for example, Music from Big Pink was one of the lowest ranked albums of the official top 100 during our last album poll) and it seems we only have The Weight left, unless a major surprise happens. Too bad, that is a great group.

FWIW I have both the Band's big albums in my top 200. (#132 and #192).

Something that keeps me from rating their singles too high is that half their good songs I would place the Dylan version from Basement Tapes higher. And their highest critically rated songs otherwise are far from my favorite of their songs.
