90s SONGS Poll: The Results

Postby Dan » Sun Jan 06, 2013 10:24 pm

Welcome to the results thread of the 90s songs poll!

To help keep nicolas sane and as a thank-you for all the great music I have discovered through him, I have offered to do the presentation for this songs poll. 22 people participated in the poll:

beefsupreme
Brad
Chris K
Dan
Greg
Harold
Henrik
Henry
Honorio
Kingoftonga
listyguy
Michel
Miguel
Moonbeam
Nassim
Nick
nicolas
Olivier
Romain
sonofsamian
VanillaFire
Zorg

Just a couple of things about the presentation...

To those who participated: your name will appear in the “Fan” section of a song if that song was in your top 15 or if you are the biggest fan of a song that’s not in anyone’s top 15 (but if a song wasn’t in anyone’s top 25, then it had “none” fans). And your name will appear in the “Not a Fan” section if the song was in your bottom 10 (I have adjusted this slightly if you didn’t rank the majority of the songs).

Only Honorio, VanillaFire1000 and Listyguy submitted comments on songs, so the presentation might be a bit bare in comparison with the albums thread.

We’ll start off with #100-91. I’ll post #90-81 at about midnight forum time. (Following Henrik’s suggestion, I’ll reveal #100-1 first and then #101-150.)

Let’s go...

Great presentation, Dan! The Spotify links came in handy, didn't they? I hope they won't make the thread heavy like the youtube videos.

Just a check..., there were six guys who ranked albums but not songs (including Stephan although miracously New Radicals made the top 100 without him)? I'm sure this is correct but personally I find it strange as it's a smaller task to listen and rank songs than albums.

Yes, the Spotify links are very handy - thanks for adding them to the forum Henrik!

I was also amused that 6 less people voted for songs than albums. On the one hand it's a pity that more people didn't vote, but on the other hand it makes the results more unpredictable (like the song that was #1 in its year but ended up at #93 overall).

Thanks for doing this, Dan! The presentation is superb.

I actually am "not a fan" of more than 10 of these songs. I assigned each song a rating and there were at least 25 that were rated below 5 out of 10. The 90s just aren't my decade. To the credit of the participants, though, the average rating was something like 6.5, which is a lot higher than I expected.

One thing I'll say is that I very rarely like 90s hip hop songs that sample 70s/80s funk tracks nearly as much as the original. "Juicy", for instance, takes the cool factor from "Juicy Fruit" but none of the magic.

I don't hate "Juicy" or Biggie (aside from the awful "Mo Money Mo Problems" anyway), but listening to it after listening to "Juicy Fruit" is a stark contrast indeed.

Since going to university from October, I've been clubbing a lot more than I ever had. The music naturally sucks - most of the tracks are either cheap pop or really sucky hip-hop, but it seems like the ONLY rap song any of these clubs have EVER heard of is Juicy. It's not that I don't like it per se, but it annoys me so much. I think I've only willingly listened to the song twice or so, and I know every single lyric. I'm surprised I'm not one of the not-a-fans.

I wasn't referring to your comment about the fill, I was referring to the 7(!) of 22 voters that had it in the bottom ten of their lists.

I said I'd be back at about 7pm forum time with more results, but life's got in the way and I'll continue with the show when I get home later tonight.

Is it just my phone or have these Spotify links had a good Christmas (are they getting a bit heavy)? Maybe I need to use them more sparingly.

The Spotify links work for me too. They do seem to slow down the thread a little bit though, so I'll use them infrequently.

Here's #80-51. I'll be back on Wednesday to start counting down the top 50.

“"If they follow you don't look back / like Dylan in the movies." Fragile and sensitive pop from Scotland, with references to "Don't Look Back," the D.A. Pennebaker rockumentary about Dylan. A band of braggarts (being heavy-metal or hip-hop) would have not been bold enough to talk about the fear you feel when somebody follows you down the street. Because it's fear what you feel, isn't it?” Honorio

Comments:
“Lunatic jazz. Björk had shown previously in her Icelandic 1990 album "Gling-Gló" her fondness for recreating-perverting jazz standards. But in her cover of "It's Oh So Quiet," and in the splendid clip directed by Michel Gondry, she created a fantastic and unreal world that was a step forward from the Broadway musical comedies and served for sure as the departure point for Lars Von Trier's "Dancer in the Dark."

I think we are really onto something here. What a fantastic mix of genres!

"La nuit je mens" and "French Disko" made the biggest jumps when I did the final ranking. Great songs!

Is that Chris Cornell on the "Black Hole Sun" cover? I always think about Peter Gabriel when I see it.

Just a check..., there were six guys who ranked albums but not songs (including Stephan although miracously New Radicals made the top 100 without him)? I'm sure this is correct but personally I find it strange as it's a smaller task to listen and rank songs than albums.

Although I like the songs polls, I'm an album listener and prefer to listen to/rank albums more than (to) songs. Because of a christmas trip I didn't have a lot of time on my hands during the polls, so I had to set priorities and that wasn't very hard for me.

I've got a friend in Greg. And I think it's much easier to make an album list, because I can simply go through a couple of stages: first, I go through my all-time list, ranking all the 90s albums that made the poll. Then I go through my year lists and get all the albums in the top 10s that made the poll. Then I make a list of the remaining albums and go to RYM to get my rating, reorder them a little bit, and ta-da! album list. For songs that's last step in particular is much harder since I have no songs ratings on RYM.

i really came to love "it's oh so quiet" when wz studied it in music class a few months ago. The lesson was about music listening and how we future teachers can lead a music listening.lesson for kids. And our teacher who is really great (in addition to be a sexy blode and an excellent musician) chose It's oh so quiet for its great contrast in tempo and intensity. A vocal tour de force

I suppose one way to make sure that the Spotify links don't get too heavy is to try and reach 50 posts (at which point page 2 of the thread opens and the size of page 1 becomes irrelevant). So I'm going to post the rest of the results song by song...

“I remember, just a few years ago, my father came up to me with a copy of Dummy to play “Sour Times” for me. This is a man who spends most of his time listening to classical music. He will usually ask for me to listen to that with him, so this was a bit of a suprise. Of course, I had already heard the song before, but it was just the way he treated the song...like it was a work of art. I'll always remember that.” VanillaFire1000

“If the last minute of "God Only Knows" is my favourite minute of music ever, the half minute from 3'55" to 4'25" is my favourite half minute of music, at the risk of sounding really freaky. Thom Yorke is singing the second melody of the song and at that moment he raises his voice while a second Yorke voice takes up again the same melody. Then the first voice cracks in a falsetto that doesn't stop until the chorus comes back in an exultant manner that vividly contrasts with the lyrics: "Let down and hanging around / Crushed like a bug in the ground."

“After Portishead's "Roads" a Fender Rhodes electric piano won't sound the same way. Before its warm sound was mainly used for jazz-rock and funk music but here it sounded mysterious, alien and even menacing. And that was only the song intro, then came the desolate vocals, the throbbing drumbeat, the dreamy strings and wah-wahs. Oh, can't anybody see.” Honorio
