Re: The 2012 AMF All-Time Songs Poll: Results

I would envision that the top 5 of the Stairway voter's list would look something like this: 1- Stairway to Heaven (obviously it would have 100% of the votes) 2- Bohemian Rhapsody 3- Gimme Shelter 4- Sweet Child O' Mine 5- All Along the Watchtower Actually, I'm only sure about the first two, but th...

Re: The 2012 AMF All-Time Songs Poll: Results

To some extent I have lost interest in classic rock over the last few years. Or perhaps I should say that I have found many other genres that are just as great. Anyway, "Stairway to Heaven" is one of several classic rock songs that have been big favorites but I've tired upon a bit. For me it's not ...

[quote="Jackson[005] Led Zeppelin | Stairway to Heaven: I'd love to see the list broken down between voters for this song and people who didn't vote for this song. Since I was one of the voters who loves this song, I thought I would explain why I do (as I did "Nights in White Satin.") As with "Night...

Re: AM Foreign World Cup: Round 2 - Australia/Pacific

Bracket 2.3.13 Winner: Alfred Aholo Apaka - Na Moku Eha Israel Kamakawiwo'ole - Ka Huila Wai I have always loved the Hawaiian sound of “Na Moku Eha.” People who know me well complain that I only like “depressing” music. Does my voting against the always hopeful sound of Israel prove their point? (Al...

Re: Mega Critic Chart 2012

I just wanted to say thanks to you, Otisredding, for compiling these updates. I've heard nearly every album on the list--many of which I never would've found without your lists. Thanks again for all your hard work, and I'm already looking forward to 2013!

Re: The 2012 AMF All-Time Songs Poll: Results

I feel like I should chime in a bit about my comments about certain songs and genres, including classic rock. Let me first say that this forum has been an absolute Godsend to me, as posters have been pretty much uniformly welcoming and kind. I can only hope that I have returned the favor. Before I ...

Re: The 2012 AMF All-Time Songs Poll: Results

Although I was one of the few who didn’t include “Gimme Shelter,” it is undeniably a great song, and is a great choice for #1. (It was on my original list of over 6,000 songs that I was strongly considering.) It doesn’t connect with me personally as much as others, but I do love it (especially Clayt...

Re: The 2012 AMF All-Time Songs Poll: Results

I have to say that I'm baffled by the sudden emergence of "Nights in White Satin" and "Tears in Heaven". On the other hand, "The Girl from Ipanema"! Since I was the biggest reason behind the surprisingly high placement of “Nights in White Satin,” I felt compelled to explain. So much of loving music...

Bracket 2.2.13 Winner: Melingo - Corazòn y Hueso Henri Salvador - Dans mon île Both beautiful songs, but “Melingo” keeps growing on me. I especially like the subtle way it builds in intensity throughout. Bracket 2.2.14 Susana Baca - Tu Mirada y Mi Voz Winner: Mercedes Sosa - Alfonsina y el mar Both ...

Re: Acclaimed Music & Best Ever Albums

Thanks for the comparision, Harold. Overall, I agree with Moonbeam that AM is much more reliable (which isn't surprising, given the amazing scope of AM, and the enormous amount of work that Henrik and others have put into it). However, I do like a lot of neo-prog acts, particularly Porcupine Tree, a...

Bracket 2.1.13 Miriam Makeba & The Skylarks - Inkomo Zodwa Winner: Thomas Mapfumo - Haruna I think in every matchup this week I preferred the musical arrangement of one song and the vocals of the other. In this case, I’m voting for the wonderful vocals (and guitars) of Mapfumo over the distinctive f...

Re: AM Foreign World Cup: Round 2 - Southeast Asia

The praise of "Genjer Genjer" in the previous comments is deserved, and I thought it had to be one of Dengue Fever's most popular songs, but as far as I can see it's just a single B-side. If their other songs are even better that would be amazing. How about this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...

Hi, Stephan and everyone. I’m new to the forum, as well. Hopefully, it’s okay for me to participate. Since I’ve always loved World music, and genuinely enjoyed all eight of these entries, I think I’m in the right spot.

Great list jamiew! I look forward to exploring over the next few weeks. Thanks, Henry. My taste in music tends to be all over the map, so I didn't know how to compare favorite songs.
