Personally I think that this poll would gain a lot more traction if you eliminated the restrictions on what songs are eligible. Let the forum police itself - if most don't feel a song qualifies as an "instrumental" then it will not get the votes needed to chart. Just my thought.

Sorry but I disagree with that. These dialogs in those cases are not part of the song, they're just interactions between the artists and their audience that happen to be recorded on the same track, but they're not part of the song itself. That's a bad idea.
For what it's worth, I agree with those who think that considering stage patter "vocals" doesn't really make sense. If you're going to write off songs based on that then it might be better to just bar live cuts.

So, Scott Joplin never made any recordings. Notice he is not represented on the AM main page. When Joplin is credited as a performer, I assume this is in reference to sheet music or piano rolls. He made 7 piano rolls, the year before he died of syphilitic dementia -- six of the rolls were apparently subject to significant editing, while the Uni-Record roll is considered poorly played in bad health. At any rate, notice no "Entertainer" below; the first recording of the song by anyone was released 11 years after Joplin's death (and does not seem to be on YouTube). So we'd either just make an exception, or choose someone like Marvin Hamlisch...
Maple Leaf Rag, Connorized 10265.
Magnetic Rag, Connorized 10266.
Weeping Willow, QRS198 Connorized 10277.
Something Doing, QRS197 Connorized 10278.
Ole Miss Rag, Connorized 10304.
Pleasant Moments, Connorized 10319.
Maple Leaf Rag, Uni-Record 202705.

Yes, The Entertainer only became popular in 1973 with The Sting. I can't find any recordings before that.

30. Walter Murphy- A Fifth of Beethoven

Was weighing up whether to include Kerala by Bonobo but its looped 'yeah yeah yeah' and mumbling almost certainly rule it out....

Would have also loved to include songs that should have been instrumentals- Led Zep's Kashmir immediately springs to mind for vocals that aren't anywhere near as memorable as the instrumentation- but that's another list :D

All lists are being admitted without exception. If you have any doubt about a particular song, you can ask it in the forum. Before the final results appear, I will show some songs that can not meet the requirements to the participants for discussing their admission.

For fans of Sergei Prokofiev's "Romeo and Juliet: Dance of the Knights / Montagues and Capulets" (which did so well in the AMF 1900-1949 Song Poll Results), in 1938, Prokofiev himself conducted a recording. It began the ballet's second suite, which was all that he recorded.

Hello, I need a bit of your help..

Does anyone know if there is a version of Elton John's "Funeral for a friend" separate from "Love lies bleeding" ? Because all the recordings I've found so far appears as one song. I know the story about "Funeral for a friend" was intended as an instrumental but i think it doesn't existe the only instrumental record.

Sometimes when he plays "Funeral For A Friend" live he pairs it with "Tonight" instead of "Love Lies Bleeding". Doesn't get you a version of just FFAF but does support them all being separate songs?
