AMF Favorite Songs of 2019 - RESULTS

Post by acroamor » Mon Feb 17, 2020 6:15 pm

Hello everyone!

This was my first time running an EOY poll like this, and I really loved the experience. Special thanks go to Holden for some extra guidance with Excel formulas I was less familiar with.

This was a great year for participation. We had exactly 50 lists submitted, and across all of them, there were over 1000 different songs listed.

I'll start by listing all the voters with unique #1 song choices. These songs only featured on one list each, but they topped them:

Edre Peraza: Post Malone - Take What You Want (feat. Ozzy Osbourne & Travis Scott)
Whuntva: Birds of Tokyo - Good Lord
Krurze: Lucinee & Lifka - Mechanical Skin
Steviefan13: Serhat - Say Na Na Na
Akhenaten: Pet Shop Boys - Give Stupidity A Chance
JohnnyBGoode: Molly Sarlé - Human
Votingbloc: Local Natives - When Am I Gonna Lose You
Miguel: Robert Forster - Inferno (Brisbane in Summer)
Myself: Chromatics – I Want to Be Alone

If I were to roll out the entire spreadsheet, all of these tracks would be tied for the 253rd position overall.

And so as not to leave anyone out, here are the highest ranked unique song picks from each submitter's list.

Nick: Charly Bliss - Capacity
Gillingham: Swans – The Hanging Man
Acroamor: FIDLAR - Called You Twice (feat. K. Flay)
Neil: John Mayer - Carry Me Away
Bonnielaurel: Holly Herndon - Crawler
Panam: Bad Bunny - Otra noche en Miami
Dan: Jessie Ware - Adore You
Cold Butterfly: Young Nudy ft. Playboi Carti - Pissy Pamper
Rocky Raccoon: The Coathangers – Bimbo
Chambord: Deerhunter - Death in Midsummer
Sonofsamiam: Sunn O))) - Between Sleipner's Breaths
Jirin: The National - Hairpin Turns
Applp: Vote For Me - The Specials
Prosecutorgodot: Kero Kero Bonito - When The Fires Come
Phil: Florist - I Also Have Eyes
Future Critic: Weyes Blood - Titanic Rising
Nassim: Dogleg - Fox
Craig: Wilco - Love Is Everywhere (Beware)
Schuttelbirne: The National – I Am Easy to Find
Rumpdoll: Michael Kiwanuka | I've Been Dazed
Jap123: Zack Fox And Kenny Beats - Jesus Is The One (I Got Depression)
Mileswide: Foals - In Degrees
Andyd1010: Courtney Barnett - Everybody Here Hates You
Notbrianeno: Pusha T - Sociopath (feat. Kash Doll)
FrankLotion: Big Thief - Century
BryanBehar: Paul McCartney- I Don’t Know
ArcadeFire: Young Thug - Hot / Hot (Remix feat. Travis Scott)
M24: Ruby Fields – Dinosaurs
BleuPanda: Marie Davidson - Work It (Soulwax Remix)
Antonius: Chaka Khan - Like Sugar
Brad: The Verlaines – None of These Chords
Jackson: Jon Hopkins & Kelly Lee Owens - Luminous Spaces
DaveC: Shannon Wright | These Present Arms
Kendon: Pedro the Lion - Yellow Bike
Schaefer.tk: Princess Nokia - Sugar Honey Iced Tea (S.H.I.T.)
Nicolas: Blick Bassy - Ngui Yi
Father2theMan: Big Boi - Intentions (ft. Cee-Lo Green and Sleepy Brown)
GucciLittlePiggy: J Balvin & Bad Bunny - LA CANCIÓN
Rob: Natalie Prass – Fare Thee Well
Moonbeam: Allie X – Science (Analog Version)
Toni: Vampire Weekend – Stranger

I'll be listing 101-200 next. As we get closer and closer to the top positions, I'll begin including more and more information regarding each track. I plan on finishing the entire rollout by Thursday at the latest, and then Holden can commence with the album results.

Well, this is embarrassing. I discovered a small mistake in calculations, one that somehow just avoided affecting the top 100. Sturgill Simpson's "Sing Along" is actually at 101, pushing everything else posted thus far down a rank and pushing Kate Tempest's track out of the top 200. I will edit my previous posts to reflect such.

Great job acroamor!!! I'm a fan of any rollout where "Hurry On Home" places in the top 100 :)

Nice job acroamor! I'm surprised Everybody Here Hates You by Courtney Barnett got completely ignored. I like it better than anything on her last album. Also surprised that Drunk II didn't make the top 50.

One of my favorite parts of any list rollout is seeing all the unranked songs mixed in with all the ranked songs. It's great to see a diverse list, one that's full of surprises and can't be predicted just by looking at the critics' lists.

Great roll out so far acroamor! Perfect lyrics chosen as well, this is turning out to be a pretty unpredictable list (but a great one)

Thanks for the great rollout! I am unfamiliar with almost all of these, so I hope a Spotify playlist is put together so I can dive in.

My number 1, That's Just the Way That I Feel, is not in the top 100, but I didn't expect it to be. Glad to see it rank nonetheless.
I haven't even voted for all that many of the songs that have yet appeared, but I really have to hear them for the first time yet, so I'm also looking forward to the playlist at the end.

Well, this is embarrassing. I discovered a small mistake in calculations, one that somehow just avoided affecting the top 100. Sturgill Simpson's "Sing Along" is actually at 101, pushing everything else posted thus far down a rank and pushing Kate Tempest's track out of the top 200. I will edit my previous posts to reflect such.
There is another "mistake", that will take the list back to 200. Mariner's Apartment's Complex already placed on last year's list and is therefore ineligible (at least by the rules of previous years). I hope that Venice Bitch, which was already in the top 5 last year, isn't in your calculations too.

Thanks for pointing this out! I knew that Venice Bitch was not to be included, but I'd forgotten about Mariner's Apartment Complex. I think those are the only two songs that I needed to adjust for. Thanks! The top 50 rollout will begin soon!

Loving the rollout and the results so far, though a lot of my favorites just passed in the last few sections.

I'm surprised Big topped Boys in the Better Land. I wasn't the hugest fan of Dogrel, but the latter song is a brilliant late-70s punk throwback that I thought was the clear highlight.

Pleasantly surprised none of the big 3 songs from Weyes Blood have showed up yet. Hoping for a top 20 placement from them all (watch "Everyday" appear in the next batch of 5 songs after I post this).

Oops, it looks like I transposed your vote for that and for "You Ain't the Problem". And this error actually is a little consequential - it means that Nilufer Yanya will actually jump Taylor Swift for position #39. Sorry about these mistakes, all, thankfully no major ones so far!

Thus concludes today's portion of the rollout. There's a possibility that I finish the whole thing tomorrow, but don't count on it. Also, I haven't made any of the GIFs myself so far, just using ones I've found on the Internet, and Big Thief have to be one of the least GIF-ed bands in existence, which is proving uh... less than ideal.

Also, I don't have Spotify myself, so if someone else would like to take over the playlist-making duties, that would be amazing!

Just predicting the top 10 for fun:

1. Sharon Van Etten - Seventeen
2. Billie Eilish - bad guy
3. FKA twigs - Cellophane
4. Lizzo - Juice
5. Big Thief - Not
6. Lana Del Rey - The greatest
7. Bon Iver - Hey, Ma
8. FKA twigs - sad day
9. Purple Mountains - All My Happiness Is Gone
10. Big Thief - UFOF

I am probably forgetting something, but I do think all these (except maybe 9?) have yet to appear.

I'm happy to see "Door" do so well. I liked the song since its release, but as I listened to it more over the last couple months, I appreciated it even more and raised it from #20 or so on my list to #3. It has a lot of little details that make it mire interesting on repeat listens, such as the subtle changes in the production and lyrics every time the "back in the city" part is repeated. The overall atmosphere is engaging and unusual for a pop song, making it stand out compared to Polachek's more straightforward (but still excellent) work.

I'm really loving all of these predictions. They're very fun in a dramatic irony sort of way, knowing the actual results. It's looking like I will be finishing the top 10 today, so stay tuned!

That last section was a huge step up from the previous two, in my opinion. As usual, I already like our list more than the critics' list.

It looks like two different people now have correctly predicted the contents of the top five, but not quite the exact order. Coming right up...

Nice job with the rollout, acroamor! This is a fantastic top 15.

What was the formula used? In my prediction, the only thing I got wrong was overestimating my favorite (cellophane), but looking at the results here, I feel like it does deserve the rank I guessed! Four #1s and two #2s! 10 top-5s compared to three for Juice, which only had one top-3 vote. I know it can be justified because Juice got four more votes, but it seems like the top end is a little undervalued here.

8 songs by solo female artists in the top 10.
