2014 Songs Poll - RESULTS

Postby Dan » Thu Feb 12, 2015 10:26 am

The results of our forum’s 2014 albums poll have been revealed, and now it’s time for the songs poll results!

Thanks to the 38 participants: acroamor, Andre, antonius, BleuPanda, bonnielaurel, Brad, Bruno, Chambord, Charlie Driggs, Chris K., Dan, DaveC, DocBrown, fabianski, Future Critic, Greg, GucciLittlePiggy, Henrik, Jackson, jamieW, Jeff, Jonah, Maschine_Man, Miguel, Mindrocker, Nassim, Nick, nickfunk, notbrianeno, ordinaryperson, phil, PlasticRam, Romain, schaefer.tk, slick, sonofsamiam, TimmyWing, whuntva.

Compared to the albums poll, there wasn’t as much consensus among the voters for this poll. But of course that doesn’t make the results any less interesting!

The presentation will be more detailed when we start counting down the top 50 later today, but for the next few hours I’ll leave you with the songs that are bubbling under the top 50:

Who would have thought even 1 year ago we'd have not 1, but 2 Taylor Swift songs in our top 30!?

But they're great pop songs, so I'm not complaining.

Postby Henrik » Thu Feb 12, 2015 8:34 pm

I love this countdown! 20-11 was great, although I will eat up my hat if I'll ever understand all the acclaim for "Can't Do Without You".

I must say though, that I'm disappointed that "An Ocean in Between the Waves" didn't reach the top 10, or even the top 5. There were so many people who suddenly praised it in the EOY songs spreadsheet thread, and I didn't even make a comment there I think. I hoped it would be the great surprise of this poll. Harold and illiniq, where are your lists!?

Dan, did you see my question about the WMCE chart in the albums poll thread?

And while I mentioned in the last thread that I was not a fan of the FKA Twigs album, I actually really did enjoy "Two Weeks". If every song on "LP1" was that captivating, I would have enjoyed it a lot more. I am glad that "Two Weeks" placed highly (though we all knew it would, come on).

It looks like the top 5 is going to be 3 big indie rock songs along with 2 big pop songs...

Thanks Dan. Great roll-out. Once again, I like this list much better than the critical consensus.

Thanks Dan for these great roll-outs! Couldn't have been made better!!

Edit:

The highlights for me:
"Sordid Affair", "Calm After the Storm", "A Heartbreak", "Dead City Emily" and "Silver Timothy" made the top 100. Hopefully it will make a few more people to listen to these songs.
Also, cool to see "Shadows of Cool" on the list.

Questions:
Where is Timber Timbre's "Hot Dreams"? Did no one else vote for it?
Why did Warpaint's "Love Is to Die" not reach higher than 695th place on the critics' list?

I also echo Nick's comment on Taylor Swift!

My picks for Winners:

Lonely Boy (#3 year)
Get Lucky (#1)
Seasons (#12)
Pyramids (#30)
Runaway (#32)
White Winter Hymnal (#48)
Two Weeks (Not in Top 50)

So I like the albums list better. But what do I know? The only one I wholeheartedly agreed with was "Get Lucky" but mostly because 2013 was a pretty slow year.

Great poll this year and thanks, Dan. Happy my personal pick made the Top 20 and the winner is a good song in its own right.

Thanks for the awesome rollout. Much faster than I've ever been at that!

This list got a little predictable at the top, but the 11-40 section is an awesome, eclectic list of songs including a lot of gems underappreciated by the critics.

None if these songs is my favorite if it's year, although Get Lucky was a very obvious winner and is somewhere near it. I do like them all though.

Amazing job, Dan!

I don't include 2013 songs on my list, like "Red Eyes" (if so, would be maybe top 10) and Take Me to Church (top 25).

First, thanks again to Dan for another outstanding presentation! As I’ve said before, I’m more into songs than albums, so I especially look forward to the AMF song polls. (And your choices of artist photos were absolutely awesome!)

Secondly, I was rather shocked that so many songs that made our 2014 AMF Hall of Fame did so poorly in the year-end wrap-up (including my own nominee, “Every Little Thing,” which didn’t make the countdown at all). Was this a case that a lot of weekly chart voters just didn’t vote in the 2014 songs poll? We agreed all year about the high quality of the nominees; therefore (though some did do well), it’s hard to understand how over half of the Hall of Famers missed the top 50 altogether…

Future Islands - "Seasons (Waiting on You)" #1
Lana Del Rey - "West Coast" #5
Spoon - "Do You" #7
St. Vincent - "Digital Witness" #8
The War on Drugs - "Under the Pressure" #14
tUnE-yArDs - "Water Fountain" #22
Owen Pallett - "The Riverbed" #24
First Aid Kit - "My Silver Lining" #33
Warpaint - "Love Is to Die" #35

Sun Kil Moon - "Richard Ramirez Died Today of Natural Causes" #54
Sun Kil Moon - "Micheline" #62
Interpol - "All the Rage Back Home" #66
Sharon Van Etten - "Our Love" #68
Leonard Cohen - "Almost Like the Blues" #72
Sharon Van Etten - "Every Time the Sun Comes Up" #76
Jon Allen - "Night and Day" #91

The Black Keys - "Weight of Love" Not Ranked
Röyksopp & Robyn - "Every Little Thing" Not Ranked
Spoon - "Outlier" Not Ranked

jamieW, I had the same thoughts. Before we started the AMF chart, someone said that one potential drawback of the chart was that the EOY poll would be too predictable. Well, that certainly wasn't the case...

It seems like the overlap of AMF chart voters the EOY poll voters is not so big. Having said that, "Weight of Love", "Every Little Thing" and "Outlier" were all songs that I voted for in the chart ,but ended up in the 51-100 part of my list and thus weren't given any points I think.

Dan, congratulations for your awesome presentation of the 2014 Songs Poll, your layouts are undoubtedly the best ones, your use of colours, fonts and spaces is really elegant, as it is the choices of pictures.
Sorry for not participating, I haven't listened enough music from 2014 to join you all. I like the list quite a lot but let me point to the absence of some of my favourites (but some of them are on the Excel file):
1. Owen Pallett Songs for Five & Six
2. Barzin It's Hard to Love Blindly
3. Javiera Mena Espada
4. The New Pornographers Champions of Red Wine
5. Roddy Frame Postcard
