Stereogum's songs list wasn't included last year. Is it not eligible?

"Untitled Unmastered" has been showing up on these lists a lot lower than its Megacritic ranking would suggest. Pretty interesting.

Probably because it's not a proper album as such

They didn't make a collaborative list.

Each member of the Stereogum staff ranked their 10 favorite songs of the year.

This list is also personal.

I'm not sure it's even their 10 individual favourites but rather a playlist of 100 available on spotify, as from a quick look:

- None of them seem to have picked the same song. Where Artists overlap you would probably expect some to pick the same track?
- There's no Beyonce (not on spotify). I'm not saying she is a dead cert (nowhere near my top 10!) But it does seem to go against the grain that none of them picked a track by her.
- they even say 'Consider it not a definitive list of the year’s best songs but rather a series of mixtapes comprising moments that resonated deeply.'

Still an interesting list, as as you get away from the consensus and you can at least check no. 1's you've not came across before.

If it's a Spotify-only playlist then they couldn't include any Beyonce tracks - she's not on Spotify. This was where the confusion arose over the weekend with the posting of the OOR list, which Granit initially derived from a Spotify playlist on its website.

That's what I'm saying. It's obviously not even the individual writer's favourites but a playlist of available tunes presented like their favourites, with probably a trade off re who gets to pick 'Best American Girl' and who has to be 'Happy' with other Mitski tracks etc. :D

It's a round no. of 100 rather than 100 minus those not on spotify*. If it was the latter (as with OOR & almost anyone else who posts a playlist of their list) then you could at least treat the lists as their individual favourites and assess whether that was eligible (maybe like the genre lists in Exclaim in some sort of weighted column). As it is surely not eligible.

*or, say those voted for by more than one contributor.

I think this list may be eligible.
