Option 2 would be really disappointing. The pre-1960 poll was one of the best on this forum, because it helped to discover a lot of good music. Reducing it to one poll means treating anything before The Beatles as inferior, something I deeply disagree with. It would be the worst option.

Thanks, LiPh. It's my impression that MTV was at its peak from 1983 to 1993. After that not many of my favorites have made it. At least Dua Lipa did well. Sledgehammer was my #88.

Great presentation. Grimes does well in our music polls, so I'm surprised her videos from ArtAngels didn't make it. They're never on TV, I know them purely from the Internet. I'm also surprised to see Buggles and Ultravox that low, two famous videos from the early MTV era.
