AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

The end of the year poll for songs is officially open. As with the EOY albums, voting will close January 31 for this round, in which we will nominate songs.

Eligible songs must have been released for the first time in 2010. Songs that were remastered or reissued are not eligible.

To vote, submit an ordered list of 10 songs either in this thread or by email at jgovatos3@gmail.com. Your top 2 songs will automatically make the second round. Songs listed 3-10 must be nominated by at least two people to make the final list. Because of this format, strategic voting is not only accepted, it is encouraged.

To encourage diversity, you can only nominate a maximum of 2 songs per artist. While I am not placing a maximum on the total number of nominations, no more than five songs by any one artist will be nominated. In the second round, we will order the nominated songs in a process similar to last year's poll.

Any comments or suggestions about this poll are appreciated, and enjoy voting.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

You can submit to the thread, sweet. Some of the songs on my 2010 list in another thread were released in 2009, but I didn't hear them or they weren't popular until 2010. For songs that were actually released in 2010:

1)"Plans"-Birds of Tokyo
2)"O.N.E."-Yeasayer
3)"Revolution"-John Butler Trio
4)"Bloodbuzz Ohio"-The National
5)"Anti-Gravity"-British India
6)"Trigger Finger"-You Am I
7)"Black Rain"-Soundgarden
8)"By the Sword"-Slash and Andrew Stockdale
9)"Runaway"-John Butler Trio
10)"Cold War"-Janelle Monae

"Fader" by the Temper Trap would be #1 if it weren't from their 2009 debut album. Although released as a single in 2010, the album is 2009, so I didn;t count it.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

Thanks to the HipHop-, Soul- and Afrobeat-Arists this isn't the most boaring year since sometime in the nineties. Classic indie rock is in a serious crisis. The biggest surprise is the coincidence of artistry and commercial success, due to Kanye, Janelle, The Roots and some others.

1 : Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti - Bright Lit Blue Skies
2 : Gil Scott-Heron - I'll Take Care of You
3 : Kanye West - Power
4 : Kanye West - Runaway
5 : The Roots - How I Got Over
6 : Janelle Monae - Cold War
7 : Chromeo - Don't Turn The Lights On
8 : Joanna Newsom - Good Intentions Paving Company
9 : Highlife - F Kenya Rip
10 : Scissor Sisters - Any Which Way

Honorable mentions (11-30):

Atmosphere - The Loser Wins
Gil Scott-Heron - Me and the Devil
Laura Veirs - Wide-Eyed, Legless
Kanye West - Christian Dior Denim Flow
Asmara All Stars - Amajo
Tamikrest - Aratane n'adagh
MGMT - Flash Delirium
Antony & The Johnsons - Thank You For Your Love
LCD Soundsystem - All I Want
Aloe Blacc - Femme Fatale
Yeasayer - Love Me Girl

6. Big Boi - Shine Blockas


I love it too, but since it was in the 2nd round of our 2009 poll, I don't think it is eligible this year.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

Jackson, could you give us the rules of the 2nd round ?

What will we have to submit ? A top 10 ? A general ranking of all 2nd round songs ?

Knowing a bout the 2nd round format could be important for strategic voting...

I guess I'll wait till the last minute to give my list, but not for strategic reasons, just so I can listen to a maximum music.

What I'm planning on doing is having everyone submit their top 10-20 out of the nominated songs with a certain amount of points to give away (probably 150, with a max of 25 to any one song).

Thanks for the turnout so far, everyone.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

Directly in :
1) Foals - Blue Blood
2) Big Boi - Turns me On
2nd vote for :
3) Sufjan Stevens - The Age of Adz
4) Sleigh Bells - Tell'Em
1st vote for :
5) Caribou - Odessa
6) Kanye West - Monster
7) LCD Soundsystem - You Wanted a Hit
8) These New Puritans - We Want War
9) Hot Chip - Thieves in the Night
10) Drake - Fireworks

I really hope someone will cast another vote for Odessa !
Runaway and Dancing on My Own would have been in my "real" top 10 if they weren't already elected.

Jackson,

I have also counted the votes and according to the lists posted on this thread, I found 4 additional songs with 2 picks :

Arcade Fire - Ready to Start
Gorillaz - Stylo
Black Keys - Tighten Up
The National - Bloodbuzz Ohio

All were nominated by Slick and another person.
So either you forgot Slick's 3-10 entries or Slick sent you another list

(sorry to interfere and thank you for compiling all this)

It can affect strategic voting. If it's a top 20 then we need more songs we like in the 2nd rd than if it's ten.

It'll be 150 points to spread across 10-20 songs; you choose how many (with a max of 25 points per song).

With the large amount of songs nominated, I assume everyone will be able to find quite a few songs they like.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

Fun strategy round!

All of these songs are in my top 20 of the year, but many of my favorites have already advanced.

For the purposes of this thread, here's my list.

1. Sufjan Stevens - "Get Real Get Right"

My favorite song from 2010, it lit a fire under my ass like no song has done in a long time. I'm a Christian, and I've longed for GOOD Christian music for a long, long time, and the entire album is just what I was looking for, best embodied in this song.

2. Twin Shadow - "Castles in the Snow"

I actually prefer most of the other songs I will list more than this, but I feel that this song has a better chance to succeed than others I will nominate. The duality of the super-high and super-low synths creates a really eerie effect, and the vocals are just top-notch!

3. Sufjan Stevens - "I Want to Be Well"

There's a history of mental illness in my family, and I have not yet heard a song as equally harrowing and empowering as this one on that subject. My cliche about this album is that every molten beat, volcanic synth and manic symphonic flourish is a weapon wielded in a battle for Sufjan's mind, body and soul, and this song captures that feeling better than any other.

4. Kylie Minogue - "Cupid Boy"

What can I say? I love Kylie's brand of electro-pop, and the post-punkish bass line of this song is a great, unexpected touch, and it goes well with the rush of synths and soaring chorus.

5. LCD Soundsystem - "I Can Change"

Any song that can be compared to "Love Is a Stranger" has a lot going for it, and this has it all, from the cracked sanity, propulsive synths and pejorative statements about love. I also think this is James' best vocals on record!

6. Janelle Monáe - "Faster"

The curt, sophisti-funk with Janelle's effortlessly cool vocals at the beginning sets a great mood before she busts out her delightful weirdness!

7. Sufjan Stevens - "Vesuvius"

It starts out as one of the rare quiet moments on The Age of Adz, but it is no less intense, smoldering into an epic battle between soul and flesh.

8. Janelle Monáe - "Sir Greendown"

Eerie, spacey pseudo-60s balladry was not what I expected from Janelle, but she delivers it so so sooo well, and that is the magic of The ArchAndroid.

9. Chromeo - "When the Night Falls"

Chromeo's shameless venture into 80s synth funk makes me adore them, and this song is on the poppier sound of the genre, with a delicious hook provided by none other than Solange Knowles and a guitar outro to top this hefty slice of cheese. If I made music, I'd want it to sound like this.

10. LCD Soundsystem - "Home"

If this is the band's swansong, what a song it is! It rivals "New York I Love You, But You're Bringing Me Down" for emotional catharsis, and few artists understand that wonderful mix of blissful melancholy like LCD Soundsystem. I love how that "ah ahhhhh-AHHHH ah"s from "Dance Yrself Clean" come full circle here.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

I didn't make the rule, Jackson, but isn't there a 5 song limit per artist? Did you thoss that rule out?

Anyway, I wasn't sure how strategic voting would work, but now that I have a list of everything that was nominated, I get the idea.

TWO NEW QUALIFIERS:

Girls - Carolina
Hot Chip - Brothers

Others:

3. The Black Angels - The Sniper
4. Liars - Proud Evolution
5. Liars - Scarecrows on a Killer Slant
6. LCD Soundsystem - One Touch
7. Hot Chip - Thieves in the Night
8. Caribou - Jamelia
9. Beach House - Norway
10. Matthew Dear - You Put a Spell On Me

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

Quote: Jonah
I didn't make the rule, Jackson, but isn't there a 5 song limit per artist? Did you toss that rule out?


I started out with this in mind, but now I've realized that it would be hard to determine a method of cutting down the amount of songs each artist has with each voting system. While vote-splitting is guaranteed to occur for artists like Sufjan Stevens and The National, I don't really see the downside to this--it will only ensure that the year's truly great songs are at the top.

So yeah, I've discarded that rule.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

Only two autos? So tough to choose.

Automatics:

1. Jeremy Messersmith- Organ Donor
2. Eddy Current Supression Ring- Gentleman

3. Robyn- Call Your Girlfriend
4. Fresh and Onlys- Summer of Love
5. Free Energy- Dream City
6. Weezer- Ruling Me
7. MGMT- Congratulations
8. John Grant- Where Dreams Go To Die
9. Jeremy Messersmith- A Girl, A Boy, A Graveyard
10. Gayngs- The Gaudy Side of Town

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

Only one Robyn song nominated? That's too bad.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

Here's a Mog playlist for anyone who uses it of all the current nominees. Almost all songs are included except for Sufjan Stevens and Flying Lotus and I think 3 more artists with one song that aren't available via Mog:

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

Jackson, sorry to question your rules, but with probably somewhere between 100 and 200 nominated songs, I'd like to make my final list longer than 20. I'm afraid that many people will have 10-20 favorites right away and won't bother to listen to the ones they don't know.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

I agree. I think it should be a ranking system kind of like the decade polls.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

Thanks Henrik for nominating Midlake
You'll have my vote for "acts of man"

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

This is a good point. One issue with this format is that people will obviously put in varying amounts of effort into the final list--some will heavily consider every nominee; others will only vote for songs they already know. I guess it wouldn't hurt to allow people to vote for up to 50 songs as long as they still only use whatever the capped amount of points is (it will probably be 200 or 250).

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

I took the time to listen to the 9 songs I wasn't familiar with, liked 2 and didn't care much for the other 7. Problem is those 2 songs probably wouldn't come anywhere near the top 20 so it wouldn't make much of a difference. If we did get to vote for up to 50 songs, perhaps I would have found 2 new songs to put into my list. Just putting forth an opinion to help make these decisions easier.

That's fine. A minor issue though - if you don't bother about the songs you don't know and make a shorter list, you get "rewarded" with more points for each song in your list.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

Didn't make my list, but I'd like to nominate this as Line of the Year:

"Love's like an astronaut / It comes back but it's never the same"

from LCD Soundsystem's "Drunk Girls"

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

Not a line, but my favorite part of a lyrics this year was from Good Intentions Paving Company:

But it can make you feel over, and old
Lord, you know it's a shame,
when I only want for you to pull over,
and hold me,
till I can't remember my own name.

I'm a compulsive romantic, so i kinda feel like this a good amount of times a year.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

"Too many Urkels on your team, that's why your Winslow." - Kanye West from Dark Fantasy

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

"You ain't never been no virgin, kid, you were fucked from the start"
Titus Andronicus - "A Pot In Which To Piss"

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010

Arnaud I think "France Culture" is from 2009 and that's the reason I haven't put it on my list.
But if you make it pass Jackson no problem, one more great song in the next round

01. KANYE WEST-Runaway (Hiphop)


This could have been my #1 too (if I could have find the time). Great lyrics, great arrangements, great song from a great album (I'm absolutely addicted to "My Beautiful...", however both "The Suburbs" and "High Violet" were dissapointing, agree with Charlie Driggs, epic indie-rock is getting exhausted). Coming back to "Runaway", that sound during the last two minutes backed by piano, cello and violins! I thought initially that it was a guitar but I realized that it’s a voice with Auto-Tune! I’m willing to reconsider my opinion about Auto-Tune: I hated it previously but now I see (again) that it’s never the instrument itself but the way you use it. By the way, who “sang” that part? Was it Justin Vernon from Bon Iver?

...agree with Charlie Driggs, epic indie-rock is getting exhausted


I think it's The-Dream who does the auto-tune at the end of Runaway.

Re your and Charlie's opinion that epic indie-rock is getting exhausted: for 11 months of last year I would have disagreed with you. Until the late-November release of Kanye's album, my favourite album of the year was by Arcade Fire. Then I heard My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and everything else kinda paled in comparison, to the point where most Indie albums seemed a little outdated to me. It's good that an album can raise the par so much. It makes me look forward to seeing how others try to catch up.
