Didn't actually expect USA and Future Me Hates Me to make it. Two great songs!

I expected Faceshopping to rank much higher for some naive reason. That is a case where I seem to think that a track is the "obvious" standout to an album, only to find out that this is not the consensus. Lyrically and sonically it seems to capture most what that album is about in my view.

I love many of the songs that have been revealed so far. It's great that three AvH songs will make the top 100, with my #1 still to come.

I'm disappointed at the lack of love for "Itgehane." It's the type of song that I thought would do really well here, collecting votes from both synthpop and electronic fans, but it massively underperformed the critics. What gives?

What, you guys don’t follow the critics!? ;)
I love that this kind of song made so many critics’ lists, but after a while it lost its appeal on me and eventually it dropped out of my top 100.

Who would do such a thing? :mrgreen:

In all honesty, though, I get more recommendations from AMF members than from critics.

I don't quite get the love for "After the Storm", and I say that as a big Bootsy fan. I think it's one of the least good songs on the album.

I’m glad my #1 is still in, I thought it wasn’t as popular as other songs on the album.

But I feel it’s the anthem of the Trump years.

I miss music videos. In the 90s I got a lot of my music from MTV. But I do 75% of my listening at work, and most of the rest in the car or while playing video games so videos are out of the question. Maybe should take some time toward the end of each year to see some of them.

To be honest, I didn't pay that much attention to the critic's song list this year, as for the last few years (especially the last two) I felt that the critics were just interested in different types of songs than I am. The album list is were the meat was for me.

I love the gifs, I especially remember the awesome Lana Del Rey winking one from last year ! But you won't fool me, that one is from a live performance of a different song (I am happy hasn't appeared yet).

Just went straight to listening The Mysterious Vanishing of Electra based solely on the gif, great track, might have made my list if I had heard it earlier.

I’m pretty surprised that “Americans” is totally unranked on the critics’ list. It’s the final track on the critics’ number 1 album of the year, and as Jirin said, a great summation of the state of affairs in contemporary America. To me, it’s the second best song off of Dirty Computer, only behind the rightfully acclaimed “Make Me Feel”.

I agree that it's surprising that the song went unranked, but my opinion on it soured a lot on repeat listens. The lyrics are just a little too on-the-nose for me and the song tries to take on too many political issues at once without saying much new about them.

I can’t help but be emotionally moved every time I hear “Don’t try to take my country! I will defend my land!”

With constant attempts to consolidate executive power and undermine checks and balances our system is being challenged by a straight up authoritarian coup, and if we don’t defend it our country will turn into an authoritarian state. And there’s no softer terms to describe it with.

Some political issues are complex but some can be very simple when you’re talking about goals and not implementation. No need to over analyze that systematic privilege and oppression is bad, in a three minute song.

This song really makes me feel like I’m not standing on an island of sanity, which is easy to feel the last two and a half years.

What a great and unexpected placement for The Mysterious Vanishing of Electra! I agree that the video goes perfectly with the song. It kind of reminds me of the style of Twin Peaks: The Return.

Agreed. It would have been my #1 song, had I voted.

I love these GIFs, especially the one for I Shall Love 2.

It's no surprise if you've paid attention on the forum this year, but Pearly Gates is a nice AMF special.

"No Tears Left to Cry" over "Thank U, Next" is a bit of a shock, as is "Immaterial" missing the top 10. Oh well! At least my number 1 is in the top 10!

I think Thank U Next is good, but No Tears Left to Cry is one of the best mainstream pop songs of the decade. I think we got the order right. Immaterial missing top ten is surprising; I thought it would've gotten more than 10 votes.

There are a couple of songs in the top 5 that I’m surprised are ranked that high, but I’m totally fine with them there. I like all the songs left!

I might be the only Scrooge here, but I get more disappointed every year in the critics list and (while I always prefer the AM list) most of these this year are the predominant "critical darlings." I like most of the albums these are from (with the exception of Musgraves and Monae, both of whom I've liked in the past but was hugely disappointed this time around); but I just feel there are much better songs from them than those the critics ordain. I don't know if it's because these are the songs that are most heavily exposed/promoted, but nowadays there are very few times that my favorite songs off albums are also the most acclaimed. I haven't done an official tally, but I'd probably give a 7 or above to only about a quarter of these (and "Fists of Fury" and "This Is America" are the only two I love in the top 10). I think I'm only listed as a "fan" of one of the entire top 100 ("Black Walls" by Chromatics). I just wonder if I'm the only person who prefers other album tracks to the consensus? (Thanks for all the work, though, notbrianeno! Your presentation was outstanding!)

That 149 point jump from “This is America” to “Make Me Feel” is just nuts. A very well deserved win from Janelle Monae! Thanks for your work notbrianeno, and I look forward to the albums rollout!

Yeah, this was definitely the year where I was most out of touch with AM. Maybe because I didn't keep up with that much new music, but also I just didn't like what the critics did. I don't hate the #1 pick as I liked the full album, it just didn't "click with me" like years past. This can be evident how I didn't even vote for the landslide winner but picked "PYNK" instead from Dirty Computer.

I guess I’m used to being in a position where my favorites don’t do that well or are overshadowed by what I feel are lesser songs on the same album, but I feel pretty happy about our list despite this holding true for me this year as well.

I am thrilled that “Make Me Feel” is number 1 - it was my most played song of 2018 for a reason. Long may the influence of 1999 remain!

I can’t wait to listen to our top 100 here. Most of our top 100 are unfamiliar to me, so I am sure I am in for some treats!
