Top 200 Songs of the Decade Tournament: Round 2, Part 2

Post by Holden »

We have successfully cut our list down to 100 songs from the 200. For each round of the tournament, I am going to implement a different style. Now, we are going to be getting this list of 100 down to 32. We will be doing this using lists of five songs, which must be ranked, and the highest average positions will move on. Here are this weeks two sets of songs to be ranked.

Heat 3:
2 | Grimes | Oblivion (2012)
18 | Frank Ocean | Thinkin Bout You (2012)
88 | Carly Rae Jepsen | Call Me Maybe (2011)
118 | Kendrick Lamar | HUMBLE. (2017)
170 | Vampire Weekend | Step (2013)

Heat 4:
38 | Lorde | Green Light (2017)
39 | Angel Olsen | Shut Up Kiss Me (2016)
45 | James Blake | The Wilhelm Scream (2011)
115 | Lana Del Rey | Mariners Apartment Complex (2018)
184 | Grimes | REALiTi (2015)

Playlist

Please rank all songs in both of these heats! Thanks! Let's see what the best song of the decade is! Deadline will be June 30th, exactly one week from posting time.

Nothing I dislike this month, but it looks like I'm mostly on the poptimist side.

Heat 3: Call Me Maybe was a bit annoying when you heard it 10 times a day, but time has been fairly nice to it (though the Emotion singles are way better)

18 | Frank Ocean | Thinkin Bout You (2012)
118 | Kendrick Lamar | HUMBLE. (2017)


Heat 4: REALiTi is in my top 10 of the decade, Green Light is pretty fantastic too. I still think NFR is mostly a tedious bore, but Mariners Apartment Complex is probably its high point
