AMF Top 200 Christmas Songs ❄ 2018 Edition ❄ THE RESULTS!

Post by Daniel » Mon Dec 24, 2018 3:06 am

A big thanks those of you who participated in AcclaimedMusic's 5th annual survey dedicated to Christmas songs!

We now have a total of 33 unique users who have contributed to the survey, and with 11 first-time contributors, that is a 50% increase over the number of ballots counted last year!

The following users contributed lists for the first time to the Christmas songs survey:
❄ acroamor
❄ Akhenaten
❄ BleuPanda
❄ Dexter
❄ Jap123
❄ luvulongTIM
❄ Neil
❄ Styrofoam Boots
❄ The_Claw
❄ TheLastEnemy
❄ Wezzo


The following returning users submitted revised lists this year:
❄ DaveC
❄ Hymie
❄ Listguy
❄ Live in Phoenix
❄ StevieFan13


Lists from the following users were carried over from past years to this survey:
❄ andyd1010 (last update: 2017)
❄ bonnielaurel (last update: 2015)
❄ Charlie Driggs (last update: 2016)
❄ Daniel (last update: 2017)
❄ EmilienDelRey (last update: 2016)
❄ Father2TheMan (last update: 2017)
❄ jamieW (last update: 2016)
❄ Jeff (last update: 2016)
❄ Moonbeam (last update: 2016)
❄ pauldrach (last update: 2016)
❄ PlasticRam (last update: 2016)
❄ prosecutorgodot (last update: 2016)
❄ Smithers-Jones (last update: 2017)
❄ sonofsamiam (last update: 2014)
❄ TimmyWing (last update: 2016)
❄ VanillaFire1000 (last update: 2016)
❄ whuntva (last update: 2014)

The following formula was used to calculate the resuts:
100*(1+50)/(position+50)

Because of the high number of ballots, the list has been expanded to a Top 200 (something I didn't want to do until all of the songs in the top 200 had a minimum of two votes).

So, without further ado, I present to you...

It is surprising. Upon further inspection, the song did move further down DaveC and Live in Phoenix's ballots from their previous lists, and aside from your vote, only appeared on 1 new ballot.

By comparison, songs like "2000 Miles" and Springsteen's version of "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" (which both gained in the ranking from last year) each appeared on 6 new ballots.

Songs like "Santa Baby" and the Ronettes' "Frosty the Snowman," which did not change in the ranking from last year, added 4 and 5 new ballots, respectively.

Because of the high amount of new voters, songs needed to appear on more ballots just to maintain their old position.

Even "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)," which appeared on 7 new ballots, fell from #2 to #4.

Without your #1 vote for "Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence," the song would have fallen 17 spots to #38.
