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

I’m glad to see these results! I’m disappointed that Dylan’s far superior version of “Mr. Tambourine Man” lost to the Byrds though.
And another amazing Dylan song, “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall”, couldn’t crack 500? Come on.
"Shelter From the Storm" is also criminally low.

Re: Album Ranker 3.0

I'm loving the program, but I thought you would like to know about a minor glitch I found. When I used artist display for Queen, all of their songs appeared, along with "God Save the Queen" by the Sex Pistols. Like I said, it's not important, but I figured you'd like to know about it.
