sonofsamiam, thanks very much for all the hard work you’ve clearly put into this poll (and for being so patient and flexible in the thread where we posted our individual lists). This results thread will no doubt be a source of great entertainment for a lot of people.

Excellent results so far… despite all the rock. There are many rock tunes that I like, but the more I listen to genres that don't have electric guitars, the more I feel that the electric guitar is the most overrated instrument ever.

But of course there is waaaaaaay more to this list so far than just sweaty men with dodgy hair making lurve to their guitars. There are folk classics, wonderful R&B and soul, timeless funk, immortal rap songs, electronic masterpieces from every decade since the 70s, addictive pop tunes that have more catchy hooks than a Norwegian fishing boat, great old-time roots music, landmark country songs, a diverse bunch of jazz pieces, memorable film music, classical pieces that have stood the test of time as well as fairly recent modern classical, and so much more…

… including fantastic world music. To anyone with a curious mind who mostly avoids listening to songs not sung in English: if you wake up one morning and think, “Hey, I wonder if there are awesome songs sung in a different language,” I thoroughly recommend that you listen to the ones that have made the list so far:

[976] Serge Gainsbourg | Requiem pour un con
[975] Jacques Brel | La valse à mille temps
[953] Sigur Rós | Viðrar vel til Loftárása
[951] Trió Matamoros | Lágrimas Negras
[932] Ritchie Valens | La Bamba
[918] Mahmoud Ahmed | Erè Mèla Mèla
[800] Léo Ferré | Avec le temps
[795] Neu! | Hallogallo
[787] Georges Brassens | Je me suis fait tout petit
[738] Georges Brassens | La Marine
[724] Serge Gainsbourg | Initials B.B.
[715] Rachid Taha | Ya Rayah
[714] Goran Bregovic | Ederlezi
[702] Jacques Brel | Ces gens-là
[688] Camarón de la Isla | La leyenda del tiempo
[683] Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot | Bonnie and Clyde
[675] Kraftwerk | Radioaktivität
[660] Jacques Dutronc | Il est cinq heures... Paris s'éveille
[631] Henri Salvador | Dans mon île
[595] Édith Piaf | La vie en rose
[554] Cesária Évora | Sodade
[550] Serge Gainsbourg | Cargo Culte
[542] Os Mutantes | Panis et Circenses
[468] Jacques Brel | Ne me quitte pas
[409] Buena Vista Social Club | Chan Chan
[405] Alain Bashung | La Nuit je mens
[377] Benjamin Biolay | Brandt rhapsodie
...will keep us together.

Going back through the list again, I'm disappointed/surprised to see these so low. Especially "Jesus, Etc."--I thought that one was universally liked on the forum. You guys have always really underrated "Archangel"--that song will still sound great 20+ years from now.

I did like the debuts of "Hallogallo," "Oh Yeah," and "Hallowed Be Thy Name" in this section.

I have to say that I'm baffled by the sudden emergence of "Nights in White Satin" and "Tears in Heaven".

On the other hand, "The Girl from Ipanema"!

I actually really loved that last group..."Theme de Yo-Yo", "Move on Up", "Down by the Water", "I Feel Love", even the classic rock was very strong.

I liked most of the songs in the 200-240 section, and the "Acknowledgement" and "Theme de Yoyo" placements are so cool. Love the rise for The National Anthem, my favorite Radiohead song. Too bad "Dry the Rain" and "Surf's Up" fell so far. Also, "Live Forever" and "Monkey Gone to Heaven" are another pair of surprising declines from the top 100.

"The National Anthem" is our highest ranked song off of "Kid A"? That's a surprise. I would have thought for sure that "Everything in its Right Place", "How to Disappear Completely", and "Idioteque" would have topped it easily.

I'm disappointed by Wichita Lineman's placement but man Theme de Yo-Yo, Across 110th street, Green Onions so high... I like that !
Many soul gems from the 60s/70s... hope it doesn't mean there won't be any in the top 200

I do not understand where we are going...And it's good.

We have very mixed taste and its all the charm of this incredible forum.

Thanks to sonofsamiam for this job of course.

Yeah, I never would have predicted that, nor "Idioteque"'s very low spot.

"The National Anthem" is my #2 Radiohead song, so of course I'm pleased by this development.

Top 200 coming in about 30 minutes...

The points per vote for Mingus and Pharoah stand out quite a bit as well!

Ok, back to 900-801 we go (I will eventually catch up, but there's so much to say about every snippet)

What a start with...
[900] David Bowie | Warszawa
[899] N.W.A. | Straight Outta Compton
[897] Caribou | Odessa
[888] Tori Amos | Winter (I adore this song, it's probably my favourite from 1992, which is one of my favourite years from the 90s)
[886] Kanye West | Gold Digger (not a fan. I loved his early singles, Through the Wire, Jesus Walks, Slow Jamz, but this one isn't fun)
[881] Deerhunter | Nothing Ever Happened (lovely little jam at the end)
[866] Prince | The Cross
857] Patti Smith | Land: Horses/Land of a Thousand Dances/La Mer (de) (oh so good)
[849] The National | Ada
[838] The National | Runaway
[815] Lou Reed | Satellite of Love (so low! but apparently it's never been ranked! To me this is the real king of Transformer)
[809] Kanye West feat. Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Bon Iver and Nicki Minaj | Monster (ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh yes.)
[806] The Millennium | Prelude/To Claudia on Thursday
[805] Liz Phair | 6'1" (I love her sheer attitude on this song)
[803] Sufjan Stevens | Vesuvius

I hope Zombie by our new champion can get into the top 100. Since I discovered the song not three months ago, I've listened to it like a maniac.

Mingus, Pharoah, "Soon", and "Don't Worry Baby" in that section makes up for a bunch of songs I've never liked/understood ("Something," "Hound Dog", "Boys of Summer," "Runaway", "Eight Miles High."

Since "Runaway" will probably be the highest ranked song from the 2010s on here, I've got to say, I find "Monster," "Power," and "Devil and a New Dress" are by far the best from MBDTF.

Monster, Power and Runaway constitute the finest holy trinity since Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels), Rebellion (Lies) and Wake Up (though I prefer In The Backseat). All three of those Kanye songs are just amazing.

Here's how my top 20 is doing.

1 | Television | Marquee Moon
3 | The Ronettes | Be My Baby
5 | Bob Dylan | Desolation Row
6 | The Beach Boys | God Only Knows
8 | Led Zeppelin | When The Levee Breaks
9 | Fela Kuti | Zombie
15 | Madonna | Like A Prayer
17 | The Velvet Underground (and Nico) | Heroin
19 | The Clash | White Man In Hammersmith Palais (still here? I hope so)

2 | Pharaoh Sanders | The Creator Has A Masterplan (183)
4 | Slint | Good Morning Captain (325)
7 | The Jesus and Mary Chain | Just Like Honey (201)
10 | Slint | Washer (presumably >1000)
11 | The Wrens | 13 Months In 6 Minutes (968)
12 | Sonic Youth | Trilogy (presumably >1000)
13 | Pixies | No. 13 Baby (706)
14 | Frank Zappa | The Gumbo Variations (WHAT NOT TOP 1000)
16 | Curtis Mayfield | Right On For The Darkness (365)
18 | Sigur Ros | Vidrar Vel Til Loftarasa (953)
20 | Tortoise | Djed (522)

I agree with much of your assessment, Jackson, except I love "Runaway". The minimal piano, the crazy vocal treatment at the end, and the passive aggressive self-flagellation are all quite compelling.

Also, I love "The Boys of Summer", which is weird because I absolutely loathe the Eagles and specifically Don Henley. But that is a great song, really evoking an atmosphere. Part of it is surely nostalgia for my youth (interesting as that is the subject of the song), so that is hard to remove from an objective equation, but music is essentially subjective anyway. So I've got room for it.

3 Radiohead songs! Ok. Back to 800-701.

[797] Vampire Weekend | A-Punk (didn't see this coming!)
[795] Neu! | Hallogallo (truly lovely to see this here)
[794] Led Zeppelin | Black Dog
[793] Pavement | Gold Soundz (not one of my favourites from CR,CR, but that says very little. That entire album is pure candy)
[790] The Rolling Stones | Moonlight Mile (Sticky Fingers obsession means I'm very happy this is here, should be higher, lovely ending)
[777] Stevie Wonder | He's Misstra Know-It-All
[774] The Notorious B.I.G. | Juicy
[767] Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue | Where The Wild Roses Grow (thank you 90s poll)
[755] The Beatles | Helter Skelter (uugh)
[754] Can | Oh Yeah
[753] Pixies | Gigantic
[752] Joy Division | Disorder (ohhhhh yes. That's the first thing I heard when I decided to listen to Joy Division, what a shock when it turns out that none of their music is like Disorder)
[746] R.E.M. | Find The River
[743] The Divine Comedy | The Summerhouse
[737] David Bowie | Five Years (I hope I see a lot more of Ziggy)
[733] Radiohead | You and Whose Army? (one of my Radiohead favourites, from my favourite album of theirs)
[731] Wilco | Jesus, etc. (I hope Poor Places is here somewhere)
[727] Phoenix | 1901 (interesting to see here, we can start the Lisztomania vs 1901 debate again! I fall for Lisztomania)
[726] David Bowie | Station To Station (Station to Station is quickly becoming my favourite Bowie album)
[706] Pixies | No. 13 Baby (please please please listen out for this song next time you listen to Doolittle. Listening to Kim's bass by itself is beautiful)
[701] Prince | I Could Never Take The Place of Your Man (great end to the section!)

From my Top 20, I have seen thus far:
13) Coldplay-Clocks
14) Pink Floyd-Time
15) Stone Roses-Fool’s Gold
16) Raconteurs-Steady as she Goes
19) Aerosmith-Walk this Way

All in fairly decent positions. The only song from the Top 20 I don't expect to see is "Nutshell" because I seemed to be the only one familiar with it before voting started. All in all, I'm happy with the results, thus far.

So far the list has been more unpredictable than last time, which is good! Great to see Beatles tracks falling almost universally, but Prince seems to follow the same trend. :( I'm tallying the differences in placement for songs that were in my list, and it's interesting to see the sea changes among my favorites.

Hooray to "Sinnerman" and some other Unacclaimed favorites doing well! I was hoping to see "Hilly Fields" and especially "Crystal Ball" sneak in, but no luck. Also, UGH to "Pale Blue Eyes", "Time", "Clocks" and Led Zeppelin making such big gains. But hooray for Fela Kuti (though I prefer "Colonial Mentality"), "Perfect Day", "Bachelorette", "Clint Eastwood" and "Like a Prayer" (even if it's my 48th favorite Madonna song, apparently) making big gains!

Love these jumps here. I loved "Clint Eastwood" when it first came out when I was 9 years old. It's surely one of the few songs I voted for that I liked at that age, but it's absolutely a modern classic that's held up very well given years of listening to it.

While this poll has had some really cool placements, there are an awful lot of classic rock songs in between. Keep in mind, I'm not opposed to classic rock--I grew up listening to it--but I've never liked "Behind Blue Eyes."

I can get behind that one--by far the best song from LZIV.

No "Amsterdam" yet, which makes me very happy. And I'm delighted that my #1 song ("Strange Fruit") hasn't showed up yet either... though I'm keeping my fingers crossed for that one to make the top 100.

Also, it's a relief to see the queen of pop finally taking her rightful place in the top 200 with "Like a Prayer."

Indeed! Good to see "Into the Groove" make the cut as well. I hope some of her lesser known tracks make some traction next time around - I don't know how anyone could deny "Oh Father" or "Bad Girl"!

Since I was the biggest reason behind the surprisingly high placement of “Nights in White Satin,” I felt compelled to explain. So much of loving music is simply about its emotional impact during a certain place and time. I initially heard this song when I was going through a very difficult phase of my life, and every single lyric felt like it had been written for me. All the thematic elements of the song, from feeling disconnected, to the impossibly slow passage of time, just resonated with me in a way I could never explain. Factoring in the melancholy music and the dramatic cries of the chorus, I knew immediately that this would be the strongest reaction I would ever have to a single song. At the time, I was in such a deep state of depression, and simply knowing that somebody else seemingly knew exactly how I felt actually helped me to move on with my life. I didn’t vote for “Tears in Heaven” (although I do like it); but given the well-known, tragic story behind it, I can also understand why it could have the same level of emotional impact for others as “Nights in White Satin” had for me.

With that said, I wanted to also say thank you for the great show, sonofsamiam! I can only imagine the massive amount of work involved, and it’s been a terrific presentation so far (with still so much to look forward to)!

I'm tired of tons of classic rock, but have rediscovered "Kashmir" -- pretty majestic stuff there, too bad it's been so overplayed.

Moonbeam, I'm surprised you don't like Pale Blue Eyes. In general, I thought Prince and Madonna didn't do as well as they should have.

Thanks for the personal explanation! I have a very different (and much more mundane) experience with "Nights...", it's always fascinating to hear other people's takes.

I totally get why people love "Tears in Heaven", but it was absolutely ruined for me by overplay. I also think Clapton made it too wimpy, but that's just me.

I had "Nights..." on my list, but not high enough to give it points. I will back that one as a solid selection from the era. I always really like "Kashmir" when it first comes on, but I get bored of it about a few minutes, and I feel like Plant does his best to ruin what could be a majestic track. Maybe it could have been great as an instrumental.

By the way, I just listened to "Runaway" for the first time in at least a year. While I absolutely get why people like it, I personally don't connect with it emotionally on any level, and the extended outro gets a bit ponderous. But I can see why it placed where it did.

Wow...one of my favorite sections so far. I thought there was enough momentum to get "Sea Song" in the top 100, but this will do. I hope "Wolf Like Me" continues its momentum in future polls...I'm confident it will hold up well as one of the best songs of the 00s.

What a nice section! Glad to see all of these advance. The reshuffling of the Ziggy songs is interesting - "Starman" is a good winner, but "Moonage Daydream" and "Suffragette City" are ahead of it in my book. It's strange that "Kiss" made such a stride while nearly all the other Prince tracks have fallen. I've got to say that I tend to prefer the other tracks, though "Kiss" is certainly a song I love (but only my 177th favorite Prince song according to my list).

Another weird coincidence ... Purple Haze next to Purple Rain. Disappointed that the latter fell out of the Top 100, but it reflects a trend toward Prince that Moonbeam already pointed out.

So far my predictions failed almost completly. I was not even sure if Kashmir will make it to top 500 and expected to see Modes D, E, F... at least in top 100 (that would be great)... Well, seems like taking many lesser votes is better then being ranked high by few people only. In Dreams and Sea Song are good examples.
I'm especially glad to see Sinnerman (I think I placed it a bit too low), but classic rock tracks also make me happy (come on, don't you love Zep's lyrics? "Baby, baby, baby, ooh!" - they are almost as good as Justin Bieber's!). But seriously, listening to Kashmir for the first time was incredible experience - maybe the strongest in my musical life - and it remains incredible to this day. But I understand Jackson's point - now I would like it to be 1 or 2 minutes shorter too.
And ahh, Maggot Brain.
101-120 section is surely the strongest so far - it MUST be with two VU & Nico tracks, The Sound of Silence, Train In Vain, Purple Haze and Stooges (not my favourite from Raw Power, but still). There is another great news - either I missed something or I Wanna Be Your Dog is in top 100!

Wow! This is great (again, thanks for running this, sonofsamiam). Now for a couple of things:
1- Hallelujah at 101!! So close!
2- Glad to see Hey Joe beat Voodoo Child (both are great though)

Chalk up "Creep" as another of the top 20 gone. Remaining Top 20 are...

1) The Verve-Bittersweet Symphony
2) Led Zeppelin-Stairway to Heaven
3) Beatles-A Day in the Life
4) Queen-Bohemian Rhapsody
5) Nirvana-Smells Like Teen Spirit
6) Who-Won’t get Fooled Again
8) Red Hot Chili Peppers-Under the Bridge
9) Jimi Hendrix-All Along the Watchtower
10) Radiohead-Paranoid Android
11) Joy Division-Love will Tear us Apart
12) The Who-Baba O’ Riley
17) Guns n’ Roses- Sweet Child O’ Mine
18) Alice in Chains-Nutshell (Which I already said has NO chance of being in this top 100)
20) U2-With or Without You

And most of them sound like safe bets for the Top 100. I'm digging these results.

Classic rock really does surprisingly well. "Free Bird" has hardly ever been discussed in this forum and it almost cracked the top 100!

Big hooray for the jumps of "Miserlou" and "Je t'aime ... moi non plus", the latter not even being in the top 1000 the last time...really?
