AMF's Top 1000 Songs by Women

Postby BleuPanda » Tue Feb 20, 2018 3:16 pm

One quick note at the beginning: I decided that to extend the list to a top 1000, that in addition to being ranked by score, a song also needed to receive at least 2 votes. As such, I'm going to start off with the songs that received a single #1 vote as honorable mentions.

I will also be updating this spotify playlist as I post the results!

Re: AMF's Top 1000 Songs by Women

Postby Rob » Tue Feb 20, 2018 8:27 pm

Like with the albums, I do actually regret not making a list, despite earlier misgivings about this project. Just didn't have any time for it.

These results look great. Surprised to see some appear already like My Silver Lining or the iconic Goldfinger. Diamonds and Rust would have been boosted if I made a list, because it would be top 20, probably. I wonder if my #1 female song has made it: Lady Lamb the Beekeeper's Bird Balloons. It seems like a stretch, but it made our song top 1000 in 2015, although with only two votes (one by me of course).

I think I know who's going to finish at #1, and another song that will be Top 10. Everything wide open otherwise.

That's it for the day. I'm planning to do 100 per day until I hit 500, then 50 until I hit 250, then 25 until the top 25, then 15 and then 10. So, I believe this will take 3 weeks to reveal everything.

We've had songs I expected higher, songs I didn't expect at all, songs I've never heard of and lesser known songs by artists who will appear more often.

Girls' Generation's Gee is the first song that I can't find on Spotify...is there a way to add placeholders so the full list can at least be visible there? Alternatively, is there a way to search for songs outside your region?

Great picks, everyone! I can't go through the list without grinning.

It's awesome to see Girls' Generation "Gee" here.

Cosmia is tricky. Drag City has a policy against Spotify and they are Newsom's label. It's not a local thing this time.
Because I own the song I can add it to my playlists, but I'm not sure I can share it.

It's the same artist and song. I had it at #61 and Honorio had it at #191.
