This one is from 1985. Care to replace it?

* I've got a feeling this may be '83, so happy to substitute with 99 Red Balloons if need be but would rather stick with Luftballons if possible


I'm happy to add this even though it is from 1983. Older 80s songs that appear on albums from 1984 are ok if you didn't vote for them during a previous year.

This may seem like a silly distinction - why am I allowing older songs for 1984 but not later songs like "Into the Groove"? Well, the way the wild card point system works, I divide the points accumulated for the song by the number of voters in that year. When songs appear in multiple years, I add those extra voters to the total, which reduces the song's chance of qualifying compared to if it got all its votes in a single year. So while I can catch the ones that are too early and allow members to add their support in a later year, the reverse is harder (and would be harsher). I accept that most of us have our own spreadsheets or the like with yearly lists, and if you think a song belongs in 1984 but it was first released in 1983, I don't want to discard your support for the song just because you had it catalogued as coming from a different year.

I can only find sources for 1986 for this one. Do you have a source for it being from 1984?

I can only find sources for 1989 for this one. Do you have a source for it being from 1984?

If not, I'm happy to replace these and move your others up.

The inclusion of these ones is tied to their parent albums. Let me know if you've got sources for 1984, and I'll add them, otherwise, I'll move the others up!

Dang, you're right- made the mistake of thinking it was 1984 as it was on Like A Virgin but Wikipedia informs me it was on the reissue the next year...

Could you be a gem, Moonbeam, and move everything between 8 and 25 up, then wedge Prefab Sprout- When Love Breaks Down in at 25, please?

In an inversion of ITG, I thought WLBD was released in 1985 as that's when Steve McQueen came out, how wrong could I be ;)

Fully get your rationale behind keeping Nena in (not just because it suits me!) Leaving aside the fact you obviously can't attribute a song to a year before it's release date, there are some songs that feel more at home in a later year.

I know you're looking at it more from the view of AM's ranking arithmetic but I'm still getting my head around how things work here and enjoying doing so :D

I can only find sources for 1986 for this one. Do you have a source for it being from 1984?

If not, I'm happy to replace these and move your others up.


My fault, the former was written in '84 and the latter was recorded in '84. I'll save them for later.

Please move up the rest, and add:

39. The Fall | The Wonderful and Frightening World of...
40. Marillion | Fugazi

Thanks!

Totally '80s: Perhaps my favorite disagreement on Siskel & Ebert was when they respectively named Cop and a Half and Carnosaur the worst movie of the year -- each of which had been given a thumbs up by the other critic. (My pick for favorite pro wrestling match Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat/Ric Flair Chi-Town Rumble, and a wrestling reporter's pick Okada/Omega IV)

Ha, ha - as a huge Siskel & Ebert fan, I remember that well (though I'm surprised anyone else does!). That was indeed a moment representative of what made the show so great. First American Top 40 and now this? I'm beginning to suspect we grew up in the same era, Live in Phoenix! :P

Maybe, I was born in '78; both of those programs, of course, were around for a while. My experience with both, at least originally, was mainly in the early '90s. Another funny Siskel & Ebert moment was when Siskel changed his mind on the movie Broken Arrow, then asked Ebert to change his review of Cop and a Half, which at that point was 3 years ago (and regardless, didn't work). I probably would have forgotten that moment, but it was preserved so to speak by this website below that documented some of the stuff they got up to.

"Nothing from Nothing" is from 1974, and the Blondie songs are from 1979, so I've removed them.

Save these ones for 1985!

There were also a few songs you listed which you had already voted for in earlier years, so I've removed those.

I've expanded my songs list from 40 to 45 songs, mostly because I forgot about Bonnie Tyler's "Holding Out for a Hero".
...will keep us together.

Thanks! I've updated your list, as we wouldn't want Bonnie holding out for your support! Making a new post is quite helpful for me to keep track of edits.
