Ultimately, fairly expected results. "Think For Yourself" once again gets screwed over...

I don’t know if I should be flattered or upset, because this is the AM order all the way down to #114*!!!

* The exact order down to #99, then a few songs that have just swapped places. Maybe it’s the order before the last update, I haven’t checked.

Haha... good job AM/Henrik :-)

When you see the list, the top... 130 is incredible. This is why The Beatles are considered the best band of the time I think. :)

99 songs in a row is not a coincidence...

Does anyone see a way to send them a personal message, without shaming them in front of all their readers (although that's perhaps what they deserve)?

I just don't get it. They have even written a comment about each song, so why didn't they bother to rank the songs according to their own preference?

"We should also note it was way more difficult putting together the bottom half of this list than it was the top part." :whistle:

The top 113 are in the exact order as the 113 Beatles songs in the top 10,000 from the November 2017 update. This is truly one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen, a brazen act of thievery that needs to be called out. I wonder how often other lists from AM have been "repurposed" like this...
