"Music scholars call this trailblazing piece of 20th Century classical music an exemplary use of 'sonorism'– but this dark cloud for 52 strings is more simply described as controlled anarchy. Instruments are smacked, bows are sawed across places bows weren't intended, and the entire orchestra hums like a swarm of angry bees."
~ Rolling Stone

Shoot, I was really hoping this would make the top 1000!

Based on the scores so far, it looks like there will be about 50 points separating this guy with #1000. So out of curiosity, what would've made that 50 point difference? How many more people would've had to vote for it/how much higher ranked would it have to have been on the lists that did include it?

Either way, I'm really digging the list so far!

Lots of very good surprises, didn't expect I'll Believe in Anything, New Noise, Mayonaise, The Predatory Wasp of the Palisades, 2 Rights Make 1 Wrong, Gravity Rides Everything or Pass This On to make it that high.
Biggest surprises so far are Gorillaz's El Mañana and Slint's Washer, I thought they were only favorites of mine !
Surprised to see New-York I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down that "low", though for a song not ranked in AM that's some high performance.

Seeing 2 bubbling Beatles songs and one ranked below 8000 in AM make it to the top 2000 kinda had me worried of having even more Beatles songs in the heights of the list than usual, but then I see Don't Let Me Down, Lucy in the Sky with Diamond and Day Tripper, all ranked in AM top 2000, didn't make it to the top 2000.

Most importantly, it's great to see the wide variety of genres in the list, though I wouldn't mind seeing a bit more metal thrown in !

Couldn’t agree more, I’m still surprised iconic songs like Raining Blood have been appearing so low too!

What I find fascinating is that although there are some songs I absolutely hate that are being listed, I admire that they are in the top 2000 because of what it represents - a death of the notion of the guilty pleasure, which is far more meaningful to me than even our polls!

This poll rules!

It's more a surprise that it's here actually. Metal and country are the two genres that have basically no presence whatsoever here, except perhaps a few crossover successes. A straight metal song like Raising Blood is a rarity. Don't expect many more of them.

I hardly had time to update the playlist during the weekend, but I'm in line with the results again. Keep up the good work, Sweepstakes Ron.

One mistake though: you credit Not Fade Away to Buddy Holly, but it should be credited to The Crickets. Buddy Holly is part of that yes, but he wasn't the star of the group just yet then. (Unless people voted for a demo of the song, credited to Holly alone, but I very much doubt that is the case).

Buddy was already the star of the group when "Not Fade Away" was released, and had several solo singles out already at the time, including "Peggy Sue." But the record label continued to released records by the Crickets so they could have two hits at the same time on the same act.

Nice placement for Deceptacon, that was one of the highest entrants to my list.

I would've hoped for better for the Twin Peaks theme as it seems to have gained a lot of traction around here. Maybe Falling will be T1000.

Seeing Joanna Newsom's Emily here already isn't the first surprise, but certainly the first shock. Last time it ranked #477, so it fell close to 1000 spots. And I didn't even vote for it in 2015. Now I'm the biggest fan.

I wonder if other songs have fallen harder.

Amazing to see (Everything I Do) I Do It for You place that decently. Not my favorite song in the world (quite the opposite, actually) but no hating.

Also interesting that the original version of Mad World outpaced the Gary Jules version by quite a distance.

Thanks very much for this, Sweepstakes Ron. Really enjoying the rollout and loving the variety of genres and styles so far. There are even pop ballads on the list. Looking forward to exploring songs I don't know and I'm excited about the rest of the results. So far, it's definitely not been predictable.

Very good..so far..incredible work of Sweepstakes Ron. I can't believe I'm the top fan of "Peaches en Regalia" and "I'm not in love", definite classics.
