The top songs from 2007

With enormous help from Gizmo, this list is coming up soon.

Does anyone know the lists from BLENDER and SPIN? As always, I'm only interested in combined staff lists.




If you're waiting for something good...

Re: The top songs from 2007

Kanye West is turning into Puff Daddy except with indie cred.

He keeps getting credit for rapping mediocrely over other people's songs. The only difference is he raps mediocrely over better songs than Puff Daddy ever did.

Re: The top songs from 2007

I seriously hope that "Wayne's World" section isn't eligible...

Re: The top songs from 2007

No less than Robert Christgau just called Lil Wayne the best rapper alive. We're going to be dealing with "Wayne's World" for quite a while, I think...

My favorite group headings on the BLENDER list are "Sad White People", "Weird White People", and "Hey Shawty!" (yes, there -were- a lot of "shawty" songs this year). And I love that they included "Business Time", a brilliant parody of R&B love-man machismo from HBO-by-way-of-New Zealand comedy duo Flight of the Conchords:

"Girl, tonight we're gonna make love. Do you know how I know? Because it's Wednesday. And, Wednesday is the night we usually make love."
..............
"You lean over and whisper, 'Is that it?' Awww, I know what you're tryin' to say, girl. You're tryin' to say, 'Mmm, that's it...' "

Re: The top songs from 2007

With this update will we be seeing the 2007 items integrated into the main list?

Re: The top songs from 2007

No integration yet. That won't happen until the autumn or possibly the end of the summer.

Re: The top songs from 2007

How soon?

Re: The top songs from 2007

Definitely before the end of this week.

Re: The top songs from 2007

The list is up now. See the AM main page.

Re: The top songs from 2007

Ok, I'm sorry but the fact I'm gonna come on here and see Soulja Boy ranked saddens me so greatly I can't express it in words.

Re: The top songs from 2007

Oh my God.

You're absolutely right, H61R.

See, I lose my faith in humanity again every single time I regain it.

Re: The top songs from 2007

And remember, I'm the guy who forced himself to Become Way Dumb in order to be able to put up with MTV in the mornings.

I'm at a stage where I can even listen to Avril Lavigne and survive.

But Soulja Boy, acclaimed? It's the beginning of the end, I'm tellin' ya. Mayans probably had it right with 2012. Still hoping I can see why Nicolas is raving about 2074, though.

Re: The top songs from 2007

It's 55th, and the last years the last ranked song was 35-45ish, so with some luck it'll just be bubbling under.

Re: The top songs from 2007

If I can live with Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" being #1802, then maybe I'll get through this in one piece as well.

Re: The top songs from 2007

55th. Mine says 51st.

Re: The top songs from 2007

Oh yeah, my bad.
