Albums and Songs of 1979 Poll

Post by Listyguy »

Shakedown 1979
Cool kids never have the time
And just like that, we've reached the end of to the 70s! This month, we will be looking to find the best songs and albums from 1979. If you want to participate, please post a list of your favorite songs and/or albums from that year in this thread. Only the top 20 will be given points, but larger lists are always welcomed and encouraged. On the other end of the spectrum, you need to list at least 5 songs/albums in order for your list to count towards the tabulation.

The top 10 albums and songs from each year will automatically qualify for the final decade poll. Additionally, there will be 50 wild card spots available to the songs and albums that miss the top 10. Wild cards will be determined using the points received in the yearly polls, with the point totals normalized by the number of lists that are submitted in that year. Wild cards also allow songs and albums with unclear release years to receive votes in both years. Points are awarded using this system:

Code: Select all

Rank Points

Here it is:



They're not in order, it was just easier to add this way. I hope I caught them all.
"Sleeping Beauty" by Sun Ra and the majority of Unbehagen are not on Spotify. I also added Cecil Taylor's 3 Phasis to the playlist; the individual tracks just don't fit in a "Best Songs" list because they're not songs, they are just parts of one continuous piece.
The playlist includes 282 songs and is over 24 hours long. :music-listening:

I really haven't listened to a ton of albums from this year so the top 7 have pretty solid favour with me. After that, the support is a lot weaker. I won't be surprised if there's a lot of movement before the next time we do a 1979 poll.
