Thanks for the link, Stephan. I was unsure about Buffalo Springfield. Discogs also notes that Cooke's "Shake" came out in December 1964.
The band's name is Dyke and The Blazers, not The Dyke and Blazers.
Weezer's "Buddy Holly" is referenced as #497 in the "500 Greatest Songs Of All Time" list by Rolling Stone-however, it's 499.
"What It's Like" by Everlast should be listed under 1998, not 1999, according to Wikipedia and Discogs.
"Don't Speak" by No Doubt should be in 1995, not 1996. It was released as a single in 1996, but it was on Tragic Kingdom, which was released in 1995.
"Super Bon Bon" should be 1996 (according to Discogs). It also peaked on the modtern rock charts in the U.S. in 1996.
"Don't Speak" should be listed in 1995. It was released as a single in 1996. But Tragic Kingdom was released in 1995.
According to Wikipedia and Discogs, "I Got a Man" should be listed under 1992, not 1993.
According to discogs, "Why Do Fools Fall in Love" was released in 1956.
According to Discogs, "Psychedelic Shack" was released in 1969. It peaked in the U.S. in 1970.
The Flaming Lips song is "Waitin' for a Superman" not "Waiting for Superman".

In regards to a database error from the last update- Henrik, when you do points calculations, do you go back and redo them all when doing an update? I know you had said that you said would be recalculating those couple of Guardian lists from the last update, with the next one or whatever. Also just curious about that in general. Thanks, sir. :)
Yes, the calculations are based on matchup scores rather than a sum of points from each critics' list, and therefore I need to rerun all data for every update, not just add the new lists to the existing scores.
I hope that was clear or answered your question, JR.
Yes, indeed. For another example and on a related note- if a list was added to a track's page after the update (i.e. what we discussed in e-mail), it gets factored in when you perform the pertinent update.
Thanks for the reply, sir. :)

Presenting the Fabulous Ronettes featuring Veronica of the ronettes is 3 on allmusic
What's the threshold for songs to be "bubbling under?"
I noticed in 2007, Bloc Party's "The Prayer" had a total score of 20, but did not make the list, although other songs with a total score of 20 like Dizzee Rascal's "Sirens" made the list, and songs with more points like Amy Winehouse's "You Know I'm No Good" with 21 points did not.
Also, Britney Spears' "Piece of Me" has 17 points in 2007, but it's missing Ireland's Hot Press ranking which only shows up on the 2008 spreadsheet. I don't know if that's enough to make it "bubbling under" or not, but I figure I'd let you know.

I don't know if it's an error or not but why aren't compilation albums ever included on this list? There are many highly acclaimed compilation albums that could be included on this site.
Feed the Animals of girl talk is 4 on allmusic
"Fancy" should be listed under 1969, not 1970. The song peaked in the USA in 1970, but it was released in 1969. It even debuted on the country charts in December 1969 (via Joel Whitburn, Top Country Singles).
"Don't Cry No Tears" by Neil Young was on Zuma. So, it like the LP, should be listed under 1975, not 1976.
A Day at the Races from queen is 3.5 now on allmusic
Rickie Lee Jones "Rickie Lee Jones" 1979 is 4 now on allmusic
Not so much an error as a suggestion, but I reckon you should put a link to Funkadelic/Parliament under F as well. They started out as Funkadelic and the majority of their acclaimed albums were released under the Funkadelic name, so if you don't like putting them in there twice I would argue it should be listed under Funkadelic/Parliament.
You Made Me Realize should be You Made Me Realise (the My Bloody Valentine song).
