Re: Report errors here - new thread for 11/10 update

Thanks for the link, Stephan. I was unsure about Buffalo Springfield. Discogs also notes that Cooke's "Shake" came out in December 1964.

Re: Report errors here - new thread for 11/10 update

The band's name is Dyke and The Blazers, not The Dyke and Blazers.

Shalom, y'all!

Weezer's "Buddy Holly" is referenced as #497 in the "500 Greatest Songs Of All Time" list by Rolling Stone-however, it's 499.

Re: Report errors here - new thread for 11/10 update

"What It's Like" by Everlast should be listed under 1998, not 1999, according to Wikipedia and Discogs.

Re: Report errors here - new thread for 11/10 update

"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.

Weezer's "Buddy Holly" is referenced as #497 in the "500 Greatest Songs Of All Time" list by Rolling Stone-however, it's 499.

It was 497 on the original list, then pushed down to 499 on the 2010 version, which hasn't beeen added yet.

Re: Report errors here - new thread for 11/10 update

"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.

Re: Report errors here - new thread for 11/10 update

According to Wikipedia and Discogs, "I Got a Man" should be listed under 1992, not 1993.

Re: Report errors here - new thread for 11/10 update

According to discogs, "Why Do Fools Fall in Love" was released in 1956.

Re: Report errors here - new thread for 11/10 update

According to Discogs, "Psychedelic Shack" was released in 1969. It peaked in the U.S. in 1970.

Re: Report errors here - new thread for 11/10 update

The Flaming Lips song is "Waitin' for a Superman" not "Waiting for Superman".

Gap Band's song "Burn Rubber on Me (Why You Wanna Hurt Me)" is from 1980, not 1981. It's on the album Gap Band III, which is from 1980.

This still has the wrong year listed.

Re: Report errors here - new thread for 11/10 update

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. :)

Re: Report errors here - new thread for 11/10 update

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.

Re: Report errors here - new thread for 11/10 update

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. :)

Re: Report errors here - new thread for 11/10 update

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.

Thanks!

Iagire, this rating is not included at AM because there's no review written. In general, I have only included ratings where there's a review of more than one sentence.

The scores in the end-of-year (EOY) spreadsheets are only for the EOY lists, without any weights assigned to the critics' lists. For the all-time AM list, each critics' list has a unique weight depending on for example the amount of lists from that country. There is no real threshold for the all-time lists, I'm picking songs by eyeballing the spreadsheet data.

I hope the answer was satisfactory.

Re: Report errors here - new thread for 11/10 update

"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).

Re: Report errors here - new thread for 11/10 update

"Don't Cry No Tears" by Neil Young was on Zuma. So, it like the LP, should be listed under 1975, not 1976.

Re: Report errors here - new thread for 11/10 update

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.
