Here is the first version of the EOY spreadsheet for the top songs of 2010, including Amazon, Grammy nominations, Pop Matters, Rolling Stone, Fact and NME.
Many thanks to Chris for this work!
Thanks for this!
I wish "Cold War" was getting more love.
I've added the Pitchfork Top 100. Who should I send it to?
The spreadsheet has been updated with Consequence of Sound, Pitchfork, Rhapsody, Slant, Spinner, BBC, Gigwise and Jenesaispop.
Jordonathon, thanks for your work, but I think Chris will be doing all the updates and send them to me, so you don't need to worry about it.
No, please no "Fuck You" at number one!!! I hate that song!
"Barbra Streisand" in top 100 is brilliant though
A few thoughts...
Hopefully the addition of more lists will clear "Need You Now," "Teenage Dream," and "Telephone" out of the top 50.
I'm surprised "Helicopter" is Deerhunter's most acclaimed song from Halcyon Digest. To me "Desire Lines," "Revival," and "He Would Have Laughed" are all much better tracks. Other strange picks to me are "Tell 'Em" over "Rill Rill," "We Used to Wait" over "Sprawl II," and "I Can Change" over "Dance Yrself Clean" and "All I Want."
I would heavily endorse "Tightrope" over "Fuck You" for the top spot.
Flying Lotus should be better represented for sure, but his one song, "And the World Laughs With You," is listed twice.
Would it be possible to add the link to the homepage like in past years (also the albums list when it gets updated)?
New update with Mixmag, The Sun, Musikexpress, Spex, Dagbladet, Heineken, Muzikalia and Playground.
Hey Chris, any idea when the latest revision for this will be uploaded.
A new version is up now! The additions are Club Fonograma, Groove, Little White Earbuds, Metromix, Paste, Treble, Hot Press, DJ Mag, Resident Advisor, Pedestrian.tv, Les Inrockuptibles, Intro, Laut, Dagsavisen.
Xlr8r, Muso's Guide and Magic added. Thanks Chris!
Cee Lo Green's "Fuck You" is ranked number 1 on the spreadsheet, but at number 368, there is "Cee-Lo"'s song "Fuck You". As these are obviously the same song by the same artist, shouldn't they be combined?
Not that it matters much but the 2 FM Belfast's songs are from 2008. (and Underwear is a great tune by the way).
Although I enjoy seeing The National get some acclaim in the songs department as well, I don't understand why everyone is going for Bloodbuzz Ohio. The second single, Anyone's Ghost, and about 4 or 5 other songs are better than Bloodbuzz Ohio in my opinion. I shouldn't complain though, I guess.
I'm extremely puzzled as to why All I Want by LCD Soundsystem is only number 33 on the spreadsheet while Dance Yrself Clean and I Can Change are much higher. In my opinion, All I Want is about 10 times better than both those songs combined. Not to say they're bad songs, in fact, they're probably the second and third best songs on the album. It's just so obvious to me that All I Want is better. Oh well, I can only hope that All I Want rises with the addition of more lists.

I miss the lists of Go Mag
A little problem with the "Magic" list. It is two number 2 and two number 4 (the second are in red, I don't know wy ?).
They are 2009 songs.
The new spreadsheet with Go Mag included is up.
Kanye West currently has 3 songs in the top 10. If the order stands he will be the first artist to accomplish this since The Beatles in 1967 (assuming I didn't miss any). The closest artists I could find were LCD Soundsystem (3 of the top 14 in `07), R.E.M. (3 of the top 12 in `92), and the Jesus and Mary Chain (3 of the top 13 in `85).
Updated with Adequacy, Complex, Just Press Play, Village Voice Pazz & Jop.
Thanks again, Chris!
One more update (the last?) with Altered Zones, Rumba, Porcys and Swedish Radio P3. Thanks Chris!
