Top 200 Songs of the Decade Tournament: Round 1, Part 1

Post by Holden » Tue Mar 24, 2020 10:36 pm

Hello! As I'm sure many of you know, recently, the top 200 songs of the Decade based on Critics' List have been shown over in the respective thread, so I thought it would be fun to make a game out of it! So here it is:
Every week, I'll post a new poll with twenty songs, randomly selected from the list of 200. You can pick up to your ten FAVORITE of these songs. Once all 200 songs have been used, then round two begins, with only the top 100 songs remaining. However, I won't simply be using the ten highest songs in each round, instead I will be basing it on the percentage of votes that they carry in the round, and ranking those. This makes sense to me, and if you'd like me to explain I can, but all you have to do is pick your ten favorite of the twenty songs!

Here are this weeks songs:
Rank Among 200 Songs | Artist | Song (Year)
011 | Lorde | Royals (2013)
034 | Frank Ocean | Nights (2016)
039 | Angel Olsen | Shut Up Kiss Me (2016)
043 | Beyoncé feat. Jay-Z | Drunk in Love (2013)
044 | Perfume Genius | Queen (2014)
050 | Arcade Fire | The Suburbs (2010)
052 | Disclosure feat. Sam Smith | Latch (2012)
087 | Kendrick Lamar | DNA. (2017)
114 | Janelle Monáe feat. Big Boi | Tightrope (2010)
126 | Deerhunter | Desire Lines (2010)
129 | Natalia Lafourcade | Hasta la raíz (2015)
139 | HAIM | The Wire (2013)
140 | Yaeji | Raingurl (2017)
151 | Bat for Lashes | Laura (2012)
154 | Rihanna | Diamonds (2012)
174 | Major Lazer & DJ Snake feat. MØ | Lean On (2015)
177 | Tessela | Hackney Parrot / Hackney Parrot (10 Ton Mix) (2013)
181 | Pharrell Williams | Happy (2013)
191 | Ed Sheeran | Shape of You (2017)
194 | alt-J | Breezeblocks (2012)

Pretty hard to pick 10 when I only like 5 of these songs.
