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.

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

What a pleasant surprise !
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.
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!!!
What is the 8 songs who don't make the 100 ?
Nice work as usual, Dan. Nice to see a kick-ass rock song win.
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.
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...
Great presentation!! What a lot of #2 votes!!
Very neat presentation (like Honorio said, the pictures are done beautifully, but also the layout in general) and (mostly) nice surprises. Thanks Dan.
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."
