Re: Best Elvis Presley Songs

Thanks for JamieW for a couple of these! Thank you for giving "We Can Make the Morning" a shot! That was (obviously) my pick I was most concerned about not getting another vote. Regarding Neil's question, I'm probably one of those whose parents' taste was least influential in my youth. El...

Re: Best Elvis Presley Songs

I’ll probably have a lot more deep cuts and 70’s songs than most because we used to travel a lot when I was a kid and my parents would always play Elvis 8-track tapes from that era. You can say that again. There are several in your top 50 that will probably not get another mention. I'm well-accusto...

Re: Halfway through the 80s poll: thoughts and ideas

I think I'm going to vote for Option 4. (Only because, upon further consideration, I'd be in favor of expanding the songs poll to 200 while keeping the albums at 150. And I'm all-in with the 80s Mania.) :music-rockon:

Re: Halfway through the 80s poll: thoughts and ideas

I think the top 150 from each is pretty good the way it is. Expanding the songs to 200 might be a good idea, but I think expanding the albums any further would likely just mean more people not ranking everything (which is pretty common as is). As bonnielaurel said, I doubt expanding the list will ch...

I think it'd be good to list the entry under Beyoncé & Jay-Z, as well. I'd obviously feel differently if The Carters were a band or family act (like "The Jacksons"), but this was only the two as a duo. I don't think it's any different than "Crazy in Love" or "Drunk in Lo...
