I'm still busy tabulating (the 1999 Super Deluxe has me overawed so I have been slack lately), so I haven't closed this poll yet!

I find it impossible to list Gin Blossom's "Hey Jealousy" in the 1989 poll since I associate it with all the alt-rock 1990's songs that made it big after Nirvana opened the floodgates. The 1992 New Miserable Experience re-recording should have been the one used in the AM list and not the original 1989 recording.

Thanks for the massive amount of work you've put into this, Moonbeam.
Seconded!
Thank you both and others who have chimed in. It's been an absolute joy to run this poll, even if for selfish reasons to get recommendations from my favorite decade!
