Sorry for the off topic post, but Fred, CharlieDriggs, and Michel, are you guys planning to contribute lists to the 2010-2014 poll? Also Mindrocker hasn't submitted a songs list yet there. I hope you all do, I'd really like to see your picks!

Getting ahead a bit here, but
Duke Ellington with Charles Mingus and Max Roach - Money Jungle
is listed everywhere I can find as a 1963 release, except for AM where it is listed as 1962.

Henrick, Is there any reason why it should be regarded as 1962?

Not only the year with the least songs in my personal library since the mid-fifties, but I also didn't have enough time to get much extended listening in. So sadly, I didn't dig as deep as I likes, but in another year in which the official acclaimed songs again contain too much sappy ballads I still found these gems (yes, with a lot of ballads):

1. Del Shannon - Runaway
2. Ian Tyson - Four Strong Winds
3. Art Blakey - Night in Tunesia
4. Henry Mancini - Moon River
5. West Side Story Original Motion Picture Cast (Rita Moreno & George Chakiris) - America
6. Ben E. King - Stand By Me
7. Roy Orbison - Crying
8. Kyu Sakamoto - Ue o Muite aruk? (a.k.a. Sukiyaki)
9. Elvis Presley - (Marie's the Name) His Latest Flame
10. The Marcels - Blue Moon
11. Dion - The Wanderer
12. Gene Pitney - Town Without Pity
13. Sandy Nelson - Let There Be Drums
14. Elvis Presley - Can't Help Falling In Love With You
15. Patsy Cline - Crazy

Crediting the right artist for the West Side Story song is complex. Perhaps I should have stuck to the lead singers. I hope it is clear enough which song I meant.

Runaway is my favorite pop or rock song from the pre-Beatles/ Dylan era.

I really like Moon River, but the version I grew up with and became fond of is Andy Williams's cover from 1962 (my mum had it on vinyl and used to play it virtually every Sunday when I was a child). So I'll vote for it next month.

I won't close the poll for another 36 hours, so still plenty of time :animals-dogrun:

Yes, Dan, I have noticed and do appreciate it that you 'admire' my RYM lists.
And I discovered the song Sixteen Reasons not earlier than 2001 ... in cinema! The song is played in David Lynch' Mulholland Drive, in an audition scene where the girl that sings this song "has" to win (referring to corruption in Hollywood). The song itself is so sweet, it doesn't get much sweeter than that.

15 | Georges Brassens | n°8 (Le Temps ne fait rien à l'affaire) | 1961 | 67 | 3.53

Rank | Artist | Song | Year | Points | Points per voter

2 | Bernard Herrmann | Psycho: Prelude | 1960 | 125 | 4.46
3 | Dion | Runaround Sue | 1961 | 122 | 4.69
4 | Sam Cooke | Chain Gang | 1960 | 109 | 3.89
4 | Krzysztof Penderecki | Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima | 1960 | 109 | 3.89
6 | The Marcels | Blue Moon | 1961 | 93 | 3.58

12 | Dmitri Shostakovich | String Quartet No. 8 in C minor, Op. 110 - II. Allegro molto | 1960 | 80 | 2.86
14 | Johnny Kidd and the Pirates | Shakin' All Over | 1960 | 78 | 2.79
15 | Gene Pitney | Town Without Pity | 1961 | 72 | 2.77


This is what it would look like if we were ranking by points per voter. 1961 releases would be boosted a little bit because there were fewer voters. We don’t know where the final cut-off will be, so the impact of this alternate way of scoring can only be speculation at this point:-

Rank | Artist | Album | Year | Points | Points per voter

1 | The Shadows | The Shadows | 1961 | 113 | 5.95
2 | Georges Brassens | Nº 7 | 1960 | 108 | 5.14
3 | Serge Gainsbourg | L'Etonnant Serge Gainsbourg | 1961 | 91 | 4.79
4 | The Everly Brothers | It's Everly Time | 1960 | 97 | 4.62
5 | Joan Baez | Joan Baez, Vol. 2 | 1961 | 86 | 4.53
