AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

Welcome to the results for the 2010 end-of-year songs poll. In Round 1, we nominated 155 songs. In Round 2, we voted to rank those songs. I'd like to thank everyone who voted in both rounds of the poll, and I think you'll enjoy seeing the results as much as I enjoyed compiling them.

I'll start by presenting the top 50 in full, then I'll reveal the complete order of the nominees and some statistics.

Note: Several songs received the same amount of points. The two tiebreakers I used were 1) most votes and 2) highest single vote.

It's no biggie, but there's a Daniel as well as a Dan M posting on this forum, and it was me who gave Spanish Sahara 25 points. Glad to see it made the top 50. Looking forward to the rest of the results!

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

a bit surprised at the low placement of "I Can Change". I definitely expected it to be higher.

My guess at the top ten.

1. Runaway- Kanye West
2. Fuck You- Cee Lo Green
3. Dancing on My Own- Robyn
4. Tightrope- Janelle Monae
5. Round and Round- Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
6. Shutterbugg- Big Boi
7. Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)- Arcade Fire
8. O.N.E.- Yeasayer
9. All I Want- LCD Soundsystem
10. Power- Kanye West

Also, great job Jackson! Keep up the good work!

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

I'm thinking it won't make the list, but the more I listen to "Impossible Soul," the more I enjoy it. It's a hard song to place among others though since it's like ranking an EP on a songs list.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

I think a lot of you guys will be surprised at some of the results the rest of the way. We've got a couple of shockers here, as tracks from Griderman and Tallest Man on Earth that went unnoticed by critics placed highly with us. Also, there is one song in the top 20 that placed out of the top 1000 in the end-of-year spreadsheet.

Still too low of course , but I'm very glad it made it. Easily my favorite song of the year.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

Wow. Sufjan is ripping up this list (thanks primarily to my vote though). Expect Kanye to do ridiculously well with Power, Monster and Runaway. The holy trinity. Great job, Jackson!

Also, Round and Round did awfully! I guess the pitchfork hype did not make it's way to AM this time.

This was my favorite new discovery of the poll. I had heard of Tallest Man on Earth before but for some reason never gave him a chance. Love Is All sold me on him.

And I'm glad to be wrong on Impossible Soul!

I second that. This is easily my favorite discovery of the poll, and now I'm wishing I had placed it even higher on my list. Plus "I walk upon the water like it's easier than land" has got to be one of the best lines ever written.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

Aw, darn it. Lost track of the deadlines and didn't vote in round 2. I still look forward to the countdown!

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

These next five are a reminder of just how strong 2010 was for music. I did not expect some of these songs by powerhouse artists to be shut out of the top ten.

Anyone think they can guess the top ten?

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

I can only guess 9 songs that are for sure going to get in. The other 1 is a mystery to me.

9. Bloodbuzz Ohio- The National
8. Cold War- Janelle Monae
7. Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)- Arcade Fire
6. Tighten Up- The Black Keys
5. Odessa- Caribou
4. Tightrope- Janelle Monae
3. Dancing on my Own- Robyn
2. Fuck You- Cee Lo Green
1. Runaway- Kanye West

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

Desire lines - Deerhunter

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

That's a pretty good top 10. I don't know if Runaway will make #1, Fantasy may have split votes too much.

Edit: Nevermind, had a look at the lists. I couldn't be more wrong.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

Yeah Runaway is not only going to win, it's going to be a landslide.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

The consensus around "Desire Lines" surprised me; I thought the Deerhunter songs would split votes.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

Wow, Bloodbuzz Ohio is doing really, really well. It's probably only my 5th favorite song off the album.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

Looks like Cold War beat Tightrope, nice!

Bloodbuzz does very little for me, but otherwise this will be a great Top 5.

SURPRISING OMISSIONS:

Helicopter
On Melancholy Hill

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

I think only having one song nominated really benefited the Black Keys.

Though this was no contest through the first half of the poll, Janelle made a strong comeback and actually took the lead after Moonbeam's ballot. However, it wasn't enough in the end, with the last two votes giving Kanye the edge. Also, "Dancing on My Own" was ranked in the mid-teens until four 18+ points votes in the last eight ballots put it in this company.

I'd like to thank everyone for voting and following along throughout this poll. The results were excellent, varied, and (in my opinion) more surprising than those of a typical AMF poll.

I'll post the complete list and some stats over the next few days.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

Thanks Jackson! I really like these two-stage EOY songs polls, and this year's structure really made us listen to a lot of each other's favourites. And the presentation was tiptop.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

Thanks Jackson. Great show.

Great show, and great results! I'm loving the embrace of pop at the top!

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

Thanks Jackson. To have been perfect except for one thing ...

I would like to see in the top 50 at the beautiful ErYkah Badu

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

Great presentation, great list! Glad that even though i wasn't able to participate of the second round the tracks that i'd pick made the list in a good way (Cold War, Desire Lines) or another (Good Intentions Paving Company, Terrible Love). Do we really have to wait another year for another one like this? I like to watch and participate.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

Excellent job, Jackson! It turned out to be a really great list, as well!

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

Great list, although I prefered the old voting system, and becauese of that, I have not voted.

And "Impossible Soul" deserved to be in top 10, instead of that terrible fuck you song!

No, get rid of that Deerhunter song!

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

It is pleasant, but not top 10 material I guess.

Anyway, a great year.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

Thanks for the excellent presentation Jackson!

Don't care very much for most the pop songs in the top of the list, but well...
Looking forward to this year's EOY list.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

Thanks, Jackson, for the great work you did!

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

Deerhunter's "Desire Lines" made the Top 10 because it "deserved" to, according to the polling system we use. Sorry if it didn't chart on Billboard as well.

Great job Jackson!

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

Desire Lines is a perfect song!
As is Runaway, good winner in the end.
Great job, Jackson!

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

Whether or not Desire Lines deserved its ranking it had to be the surprise of the tournament, so good for it.

edit: I meant poll obviously

I have Sufjan, Caribou, Beach House and Sleigh Bells in my top 10. I don't like much Deerhunter because I think they're boring, not because they don't sell well, and I don't expect them to come remotely close to the top of the charts. But I do place a high value on having memorable melodies, and if that means pop songs at the top of the list, then that's good for pop!

Also, I agree, top-notch poll by Jackson.

Re: AMF Poll: Songs of 2010 Results!

Excellent list everyone, I wish I could have participated. Particularly the Top 5 is impeccable. I'm not that sure about the rest of the Top 10, but the first five songs are awesome, capable of transmit pure emotion and bring tears to your eyes.
Jackson, great presentation, congratulations
