So, what happened with the Stones poll? Is going to be replaced by this one?
Is there a week for voting? Or a month like the other individual artists polls?
Are you counting our Top 10s or longer lists will be counted?

Probably looking pretty hipster-ish but I've used the usual suspects from the Stones... I have listened to them so much that when I come back to them now, I mostly find entertainment in their "second-rate" classics. I still tried to stay up to some standards - I'm a sucker for the FM rock of Steel Wheels and Voodoo Lounge, so it might have been much worse if I had let my heart take over more...

Hot Rocks really influenced my view of the Rolling Stones' output as they were a more of a singles band than an albums band.

01 | Sympathy for the Devil
02 | Paint It, Black
03 | Jumpin' Jack Flash
04 | Honky Tonk Women
05 | You Can't Always Get What You Want
06 | Gimme Shelter
07 | Tumbling Dice
08 | Time Is on My Side
09 | Let's Spend the Night Together
10 | Under My Thumb
11 | Street Fighting Man
12 | Start Me Up
13 | Heart of Stone
14 | (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction
15 | Rocks Off
16 | Miss You
17 | Brown Sugar
18 | As Tears Go By
19 | Beast of Burden
20 | Get Off of My Cloud
21 | Moonlight Mile
22 | Wild Horses
23 | Shine a Light
24 | 19th Nervous Breakdown
25 | Salt of the Earth

I'm almost offended that "Honky Tonk Women" isn't doing well. One of the greatest rock songs ever.

babydoll, you'll be happy to know that "Honky Tonk Women" has easily ascended into the top 10. I'm more surprised by the poor showing for "Satisfaction."

- The top three were neck-in-neck through the entire voting process, but "Sympathy for the Devil" won by a pretty narrow margin.
- By informal tabulation, I think Sticky Fingers had the most songs featured on the list, with 7 songs.

Oh, Stevie, this is embarrassing, but I discovered that I actually wrote "Shine a Light" instead of "Rocks Off". Will it be too much of a pain to correct this error?

:angry-banghead: LOL no sweat. I can just add a point for Rocks Off and take away one for Shine a Light.

Shine a Light is now #33 (not an inconsiderable drop), there's a consecutive shift upwards for #s 32-26, and Rocks Off is now one spot ahead of Under My Thumb.

Good choices! Yeah, in the future, I'll be more specific about how many weeks it'll take to complete a list (I'm thinking 1 week for a 30 songs list, 2 for a 50 songs list, and 3+ for anything longer than that). Looks like if you and our friend with the 1-song list had combined forces, Gimme Shelter might've pushed Sympathy for the Devil out of the top spot (but probably not).

Here's something I'm surprised about: She's So Cold didn't show up on any lists (would stand a good chance of making mine if I had expanded a bit).

Stevie, you said that voting runs until Friday, so you were clear. But I didn't even open the thread until now since our previous artist polls were done monthly (with another scoring system) and I think the Stones were next in line. Maybe you aren't even aware of this? We took the artists in order of the results of the forum's last artist ranking, but sometimes switched to artists with new releases (or deaths :( ). Has there been a discussion that we leave that schedule and instead vote for a new topic every week?

People have brought it up before. I sort of started this independently, with designs of eventually turning them into blog entires (this remains to be seen). The lists I run aren't just for artists, but also for genres or themes, so it's a little different than what was being done before. I guess I wasn't designing it as a "poll," per se. But I'll happily fall in line with what was being done before if that's preferred (though I have to say, the results for the last two have been quite satisfactory).

I hope I can make a suggestion about the presentation? Make one single Spotify playlist of the top songs. It makes it easier to read the list.

And I don't know if anyone else wants to change the scoring, so that there's more weighting toward top picks. It could be just me.

I was thinking that. I'll do that for the Smiths list.

If I have an organized way of ranking songs based on weight, I'll put it into action.

Thanks for taking me up on my suggestion! For the weighting, try to search up our past big poll proposal threads, including the past individual artist polls. You should be able to find some weighting systems you can use.
