Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

You guys were right, I somehow forgot to include your lists, and I now can't edit the original post.

So, add these to the list of nominees:

Beach House - Norway
Eddy Current Supression Ring - Gentlemen
Girls - Carolina
Hot Chip - Thieves in the Night
Hot Chip - Brothers
Jeremy Messersmith - Organ Donor
Robyn - Call Your Girlfriend

I'm so sorry about this, John and Jonah.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

I'm trying to listen to all the songs I don't know so as usual I'll post my list in the end

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

That is what I did at my desk yesterday. I listened to everything on the list. A couple made me take a second look at. There were honestly about 15 songs that made me cringe and wish I could put negative points on.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" was first released as a single in 2009, so it's ineligible. Henry chose it as one of his automatic picks; perhaps he could have a do-over?

I just noticed this as well. Slick, either send a list with new point values or I can multiply your current point values by 5/6 so the total is 250.

I have tabulated the 7 votes so far (6 are in the thread and Daniel's came via email) and the poll is a runaway so far...

Sorry about that, I'm not sure why I thought it was 300 points. I have readjusted this to 250.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

This is getting a really convoluted way to rank songs.

1. The Tallest Man On Earth - Love Is All (30)
2. National - Afraid of Everyone (26)
3. Angus & Julia Stone - I'm Not Yours (25)
4. Arcade Fire - Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains) (19)
5. Gorillaz - Rhinestone Eyes (18)
6. Beach House - Zebra (17)
7. Tallest Man on Earth - Thousand Ways (17)
8. Janelle Monae - Cold War (15)
9. Kanye West - All of the Lights (15)
10. National - Runaway (14)
11. Cee-Lo Green - Fuck You! (11)
12. National - Bloodbuzz Ohio (9)
13. Angus & Julia Stone - Draw Your Sword (7)

17. Robyn - Dancing On My Own (3)
18. Kanye West - Power (3)
19. Beach House - Walk in the Park (3)
20. LCD Soundsystem - I Can Change (1)

That should be 250.

Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" was first released as a single in 2009, so it's ineligible. Henry chose it as one of his automatic picks; perhaps he could have a do-over?


Is that right Alex?

Please note that Lady Antebellum's Need You Now is rated as number 96 in the latest Acclaimed Music 2010 songs spreadsheet and we also have it winning the best song award at the Grammy's as described below and at http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110214/ap_on_en_mu/us_grammys :

Lady Antebellum was the big winner at the Grammys with five awards, including record and song of the year for the band's yearning crossover ballad "Need You Now."

Yes, it won the Grammy and it's on the spreadsheet, but we're going by the first release date, and the single was released in 2009 according to Wikipedia and RYM.

Then again, I'm not running this so we might as well let Jackson have the final say.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

If it's on the spreadsheet, I think it should be eligible (besides, "Need You Now" has not been a factor in the poll thus far).

Also, I received your list, Evan.

Right now, 12 votes are in. This is significantly less than we had in the first round, so I hope everyone that voted then will vote now. Remember, you can submit a straight list and I'll distribute the points for you (as I did with Evan) if you don't want to worry about the numbers.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

When making my Mog playlist of all these songs I accidentally put And the Boys by Angus and Julia Stone on instead of something else. Funny thing is I would have given And The Boys 30 points after hearing it again!

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

The results are still changing quite a bit with each new list I put in, and I think a lot of placements will surprise people.

Keep the lists coming if you haven't voted.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

I keep finding myself going back to "Down The Way", and it has now climbed to around ~150 of all time, and I'm listening to it again now and it might climb even further. What a fantastic album, and you are right John: "And The Boys" should be among the nominations. Then again, so should "For You" and "Yellow Brick Road".

So nobody voted for my numbers 1 and 2 ? I'm disappointed Did you even listened to those songs ? (not that I am expecting any answer though)

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

La banane, in my opinion, is the worst song of the year

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

another Katerine hater lool !! well PK's a love/hate guy !

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

Apart from yourself, someone loves Katerine?

Ohlalá, France is in crisis

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

I agree, La Banana is definitely the worst song in the list. Sorry nic. Easter Eve is one of the best Mellencamp songs in a long time, but not quite good enough to make my list.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

otisredding your photos are great

and I still believe that a song beginning with "NOn je ne veux plus jamais travailler" is a great song

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

just one thing : did you guys understand FRench ? because if u don't it's difficult to get the song

anyway humor is the most difficult thing to translate and a singer with funny songs is a blessing in these times of gloomy (but good) bands like Arcade Fire/ The National etc...

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

If you think the lyrics are very good, I'll look and try to understand.

Anyway, I think I'm spending too much time Katerine

By the way, I thought that possibly a photograph of the Eiffel Tower might hurt feelings

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

I understand some French, but not enough I guess.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

Not the type of music that you normally recommend, nicolas, but that's fine. What is not so fine is that it reminds me of the Eurovision Song Contest, you know the one "joke song" that mysteriously has been chosen by its country and gets zero points from the rest of Europe. And no, I didn't understand the lyrics. About the banane on the beach maybe?

I listened to Easter Eve and found it to be unremarkable (11.4 on my enjoyment scale, where 1 is an all-time favorite and 11 is worth a second listen).

Please describe what you find so wonderful about the song, and I'll gladly give it another try.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

Nicolas, I like La Banane's melody well enough, but I used Google to translate the lyrics, and I find the song's sexual implications to be very disturbing.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

Hey Jackson, when will the results be posted?

Even with the extras it's only 246 if I added correctly. Also, I assume you meant "Odessa" as your Caribou selection.

Rick Ross - Aston Martin Music - 6
Black Keys - Tighten Up - 4


Even with the extras it's only 246 if I added correctly. Also, I assume you meant "Odessa" as your Caribou selection.


Nice! Add one more point to "Aston Martin Music" and "Tighten Up" then give one point each to Janelle Monae's "Tightrope" and Robyn's "Call Your Girlfriend".

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Round 2

I don't want to spoil the whole thread but as you asked me about my favorite songs I'll answer

1. La Banane (translation)

No I never want to work again
I' d rather die
No I'ln never ever go to the supermarket
I' d rather die

Just let me, Just let me
Eat my banana
Just let me, just let me
Eat my banana naked on the beach

No I never want to dress again
I'd rather die
Than to get up in the morning because you ask me to
I'd rather die (chorus)

Bridge : Yes, sier, I know that these are your children
But when they see me they laugh all the time

(chorus)

Not a sexual song but a song about censorship and freedom. Yes, it can be disturbing for some people, because it is about what society forbids you to do.
(in the album he had his father and mother sing with him a song that goes like "I want to make a movie with a naked woman and disabled people"; he did it after havng a conversation with them about censorship).
And otis, Katerine has a lot of fans in France. The guy is really smart, found of art, and his songs make sense. He's like a cool Lars Von Trier.


2. Easter Eve's lyrics are one of the best i've heard in a long time. I love narrative songs. It sounds to me like a good Cormac McCarthy novella. It's a father/son song. A song about youth too. But please read "The Border Trilogy" or "The Road" if you haven't and maybe you'll see what I mean.
Makes me think of old barroom ballads of the 1930s (jimmie Rodgers in particular) and Irish traditional music.
Sorry if my songs don't please you I admit they both are very idiosyncratic, but that's why I love them. They just stand out IMO.

Katerine did an album with Anna Karina, so he's A-OK in my book!
