Re: The 2011 Year-End Songs Poll - Results

Re: The 2011 Year-End Songs Poll - Results

Things that have stood out for me so far from the perspective of compiling this list:

Despite having the most amount of songs in the final (6 songs) only 1 Fleet Foxes song has made it into the top 50. Everyone seems to prefer a different song from the album.

If you look at the Critics’ Rank part of the presentation, you’ll notice that we often don’t agree with the critics this year.

But the critics definitely like R&B more than we do as a whole.

Re: The 2011 Year-End Songs Poll - Results

I was going to proclaim that all of my top 5 songs were still in the running after your last post... now I can't do it.

I know people say that nothing stands out on the 9 Types of Light, but I have to disagree. It's similar to Dear Science, but the top tracks are the standouts of their career, really mixing the genres of R+B, funk and post-punk together nicely.

Re: The 2011 Year-End Songs Poll - Results

Great to see the Otherside that high, it suffered on the critic list from being released in December and not being a single.

I would have bet that Helplessness Blues, Holocene and Yonkers would make it to the top 10.

Re: The 2011 Year-End Songs Poll - Results

Fleet Foxes suffered a great spreading effect
Once again, DanM, thanks for the great presentation !
I have no clue about which songs are left, but I'm happy that Ry Cooder made the top 20 in albums and songs. It's a great performance for a country rock artist.

Re: The 2011 Year-End Songs Poll - Results

I would have thought Holocene and Yonkers were locks for the top 10. I really don't know what's going to make it outside of a few songs (though it looks like my number one has a few other fans). I would guess Midnight City for the top spot, but something tells me that will be a surprise too.

Re: The 2011 Year-End Songs Poll - Results

Wow.....I, like many other forum members, would have thought that "Holocene" and "Yonkers" were definitely going to make top ten. And after they didn't I was sure that "Rolling in the Deep" and "Midnight City" would make top five. Now I really have no clue who's going to win. "Vomit"? "Video Games"? Who knows?

Re: The 2011 Year-End Songs Poll - Results

I can assume what are the top five songs but I have no idea what song will be the number one

Re: The 2011 Year-End Songs Poll - Results

Yeah !!
What a pleasant surprise !

Re: The 2011 Year-End Songs Poll - Results

I didn't even hear Lonely Boy until after the year was over. I have to think that this might be the first time that a song or album finished #1 in one of our polls without anybody actually voting it #1. I was thinking about giving it #1 over Holocene but it ended up #2. Fantastic song though.

Re: The 2011 Year-End Songs Poll - Results

Great show again, Dan! Thank you!!

Our polls get more and more surprising. But what I really don't get is how the critics could leave out so many of these songs from their lists. Some of the songs are album tracks but only a few of the critics lists are songs-only nowadays so that shouldn't be much of a hindrance actually. And what about "The Glorious Land"? Number 2 in our poll, number 4 at RYM and the critics put it at 1113...

The critics need to get into shape or the continuation of AM is in danger!!!

I was also very close to making it my #1. The song which most voters liked a lot finished on top, instead of the song with most #1 votes. It was a clear winner though. One more voter could have moved any of the songs up or down the list except for Lonely Boy.

I'll post the individual lists tomorrow. I'm going out with some mates now to celebrate The Black Keys' deserved victory (and to celebrate a rather unpredictable poll).

Re: The 2011 Year-End Songs Poll - Results

What is the 8 songs who don't make the 100 ?
Thanks.

Re: The 2011 Year-End Songs Poll - Results

Nice work as usual, Dan. Nice to see a kick-ass rock song win.

Re: The 2011 Year-End Songs Poll - Results

I think a lot of people would agree that this is the most unpredictable list we've had in a while. Seeing two of my top three songs ("Second Song" and "The Words That Maketh Murder") reach the top 10 when they were more-or-less ignored by critics is really encouraging.

Lonely Boy caught me completely off guard as the winner. If I had to guess before the poll, I would have thought it would have finished around 20. But I'm not at all disappointed to see it win.

Re: The 2011 Year-End Songs Poll - Results

Awesome presentation, Dan. Very very elegant, with all the pictures exactly the same size. And an excellent selection of pictures!
And great list, much better than the critic's one! Glad to see "The Glorious Land" in its deserved placement. It was my favourite song from the album since I heard the drum sample that opens the song (taken from The Police's "The Bed's Too Big Without You"). Congratulations everyone...

Re: The 2011 Year-End Songs Poll - Results

Great presentation!! What a lot of #2 votes!!

Re: The 2011 Year-End Songs Poll - Results

Very neat presentation (like Honorio said, the pictures are done beautifully, but also the layout in general) and (mostly) nice surprises. Thanks Dan.

Re: The 2011 Year-End Songs Poll - Results

1) Many thanks to Dan M for his work and its timeliness: he has complied with the timing that was committed

2) The best of these results is that they are unpredictable. In other polls, when we reached the top five, and there is no uncertainty.

3) Lonely Boy goes up and up and up to each listener. The video fills you with joy

4) My only disappointment. The song Marvin's Room (Drake) is my number one but it was only number 86 in the survey. = The forum does not appreciate too the black music: sophisticated, elegant, exciting, "heart and soul."

Re: The 2011 Year-End Songs Poll - Results

Honorio
the drum sample that opens the song (taken from The Police's "The Bed's Too Big Without You")
I didn't know the drums were sampled. The guitars are what make the song so great though IMO. I've never heard anything so simultaneously intense and subtle.
