Thanks for the links to these lists. I think several of them could be included, but there are so many other lists in the works already, so I don't know if I should ask for any transcriptions...

I'll do what I did for the Paste lists here.

Definitely eligible
- Kate Bush singles (or at least I know it's already been added to the AM rankings since I posted it and Henrik declared it eligible a few years ago - it has the same eligibility status as the "questionably eligible" lists so it might tip the scale in their favor)
- ABBA UK singles (multiple writers for sure)

Questionably eligible (aka using "we" and "our" with a single-writer byline):
- Madonna singles
- Radiohead
- The Clash
- Christmas songs
- Bjork
- Missy Elliott singles
- Prince singles
- Beatles singles
- Joni Mitchell albums
- Miles Davis albums
- Stevie Wonder albums
- Bruce Springsteen albums
- Taylor Swift singles
- Aphex Twin
- Giorgio Moroder
- Banned songs (at least there's specific criteria)
- The Who's UK singles
- Spice Girls
- Lil Wayne albums
- Queen UK singles
- Elton John
- David Byrne albums
- Mercury Prize-winning albums
- Barry Manilow
- Kanye West albums
- Rolling Stones albums
- Female rap tracks
- Songs with 10 weeks at number one

Probably not eligible:
- Oasis singles (single-writer byline - shame, too, since having 30 songs would make it eligible otherwise)
- Eminem
- Oscar winners
- Dr. Dre productions
- Aretha Franklin singles
- PJ Harvey
- Disney
- UK garage tracks
- Nirvana
- Breakup songs (and beyond that, it'd be very difficult to narrow down what qualifies as a breakup song amidst the vast archives of songs in the world)
- Black Sabbath albums
- Cher
- Paul Simon albums
- Songs from teen movies
- Detroit tracks

I will say that the name that shows up on both questionable and not necessarily eligible lists the most is Alexis Petridis, one of whose books is used as a reference for AM. Supposing his lists might get a pass at least for his status as head music critic?

Probably not eligible. I refer you to my comment on the Paste Magazine lists post.
