Go to the NEW FORUM
Odd observation- in the 1,001/10,001 book, "Ain't Nobody" actually was listed twice- under Chaka Khan and then under Rufus & Chaka Khan. To the right of the R&CK entry, I made a note that it was listed twice.
I'm almost up to the "T's" in the index, so I will then encounter Mr., Bennett.
Thanks a lot Henrik, such a great teaser for the upcoming update!
Happy to see some favorites finally included (Driver 8, Kung Fu Fighting), not so happy for other additions (3 songs each from Pulp and Pavement), in both cases thanks to the critics, anyway I'm very interested to see the new list.
Hello! I have (by pure chance) noticed an error: "Histoire d'un garçon" is attributed to "Benjamin Boilay" while it's actually "Benjamin Biolay".
Though "Y Control" would be in the waiting list. It isn't even in the document. dammit!
Wow, that's awesome JR!
I found a couple of possible double entries:
- Zappa, Frank/The Mothers of Invention
"Who Needs The Peace Corps" / "Who Needs This Peace Corps"
- Velvet Underground, The "I'm Waiting for the Man" / "Waiting for the Man (ej singel)" (but possibly not "Sweet Jane" and "Rock and Roll")
If something's off by a word or so, I make note of that, too, for the 1,001/10,001 book.
I came across another double entry- "Tom's Diner." The book lists it under Suzanne Vega and also DNA Feat. Suzanne Vega. Rather than make two entries, I made a note about it in the spreadsheet- Henrik, you can do as you will when you eventually work with it. :)
Indeed, Harold. I remembered that there was a pre-remix version, but thank you for reiterating that info. I had actually overlooked the D.N.A. entry for "Tom's Diner" in the spreadsheet I'm working on, so I'm glad you responded and I went back and looked for that. Now, both the original and remix are X'd.
Henrik, regarding this songs spreadsheet...
I discovered that there are a few very early (pre-1920) songs that appear to be from a list called the Peelennium (a couple of links to the list appear below). However, only the first 80 songs from the list (the ones from 1900 to 1919) appear on your songs spreadsheet. Beginning with song #81, there aren't any more songs from Peelennium on the spreadsheet (except of course for songs that also appear on other lists). Here's some possibilities that I thought of...
a) The Peelennium list is not eligible for inclusion on AM, and the fact that the first 80 songs are on the spreadsheet is mere coincidence.
b) The Peelennium list IS eligible for inclusion, but you didn't know about this list, and the fact that the first 80 songs are on the spreadsheet is mere coincidence.
c) The Peelennium list is eligible for inclusion, you were aware of it, and you accidentally left off the remaining songs.
d) Some other possibility.
I certainly don't mean to nitpick; I just thought I might bring it to your attention.
It is c. Thanks Matt for this check!
If anyone would like to create a spreadsheet of this list with surnames first that would help me a lot.
Is there a newer iteration of this spreadsheet which reflects the newly collated lists and the corrections others have made?
I second the query about an updated spreadsheet that JR was working on. I would love to be able to see the version with the 1001/10001 song column included. Thanks!
