Thanks! Strange that this isn't included already. Wasn't PMA wellknown at the time?

Glad to see this incredible, yet oft-overlooked track on the list. Might be my favorite TVotR track.

With songs like "Mr. Carter" and "Comfortable" present, can someone tell me why "A Milli" became the critics' choice for the best song on Tha Carter III? It's good, but neither the beat nor the lyrics are likely the best on the record.
Album of the Year: Kendrick Lamar - DAMN.
Song of the Year: Frank Ocean - Chanel

A Milli is one of Wayne's signature moments

Agreed 100%; while I think Wolf Like Me is their best song, DLZ is an overwhelmingly great track that has only gotten better with time. I bet if it had a different name or had gotten the push as a lead single it would be universally acclaimed as Dear Science's best song. Maybe the classic usage on Breaking Bad will help it gain over time.

I kinda sorta remember this list- but, it must have gotten lost in the shuffle.

"Can't Get You Out of My Head" is a glaring omission. Must have been No. 76. :)

And a song she nixed was #4 on this list. Sweet revenge for Bloodshy & Avant! :D :whistle:
