Re: EOY Village Voice: Pazz & Jop

I will just enter the songs directly into the spreadsheet.

Re: EOY Village Voice: Pazz & Jop

The list is from 1934 albums.

Only count the first 100?

Re: EOY Village Voice: Pazz & Jop


Re: EOY Village Voice: Pazz & Jop

Yep is Yes?

Re: EOY Village Voice: Pazz & Jop

Yep is Yes?



not sure how you put these in the spreadsheet (top 50 or 100). Unlike albums, these are listed simply by the number of mentions (as opposed to assigned points for each critic's ranking). Number 48 has14 mentions, and then Nos. 49-53 have 13 mentions each. Numbers 90-113 tied with 7 mentions each.

If a bunch have the same # of citations, I gather they each get the value? (i.e. if tied for 7th, 7 is listed for each track)

*Includes 2008 votes: "You Belong With Me" 1, "Use Somebody" 2, "Day 'N' Nite" 5, "The Fear" 1, "Hellhole Ratrace" 1
**Includes remix/alternate-version votes: "My Girls" 1, "Two Weeks" 1, "Heads Will Roll" 2, "Poker Face" 1, "Day 'N' Nite" 2

Re: Singles...

not sure how you put these in the spreadsheet

I put in the top 113. I used the average place of songs that were tied. i.e. if Use Somebody(#15) and Daniel(#16) had the same number of citations they would both get 15.5.
