Good find, JimmyJ. Not a bad overall selection at all.

Is Bjork really "pop," though? :D Since alternative doesn't have its own category, I suppose so.

She'd fit in better with Electronic than pop just like Primal Scream.

Sometimes with these kinds of lists, if there were a "Best Song/Track" cited, they would be included at AM, too. Is that a case for these, Henrik, or no?
