Re: Hadestown July 5

Hello critics! You will listen to ”Hadestown” before making your end of decade album list, right??? And while you’re at it, why not consider ”Why We Build the Wall” for the songs list? Pop and hip hop singles aren’t everything.

Re: Albums and Songs of 1984 Poll

The first decade polls had 100 albums and songs. We then increased the nominations to 150, to make room for more than 10 albums/songs per year and get a more definitive top 100. I think I also once suggested that the decade poll countdowns should start from 100 (down to 1), creating some excitement ...

Richard Hell's Blank Generation is from 1976 rather than 1977, on the Another World EP. Perhaps it should, although it’s a different, unacclaimed, version. It was also mentioned that the original version of ”West End Girls” is from 1984. And Honorio listed MGMT’s ”Time to Pretend” and ”Kids” as 200...
