It is safe. As you've correctly discerned, not many songs from this year are as the song votes have been widely distributed. Already more songs getting votes than 1995, with at present 9 fewer voters.

2 #11s as well, but don't worry about correcting it; the final results won't be significantly affected.

SONG results.
Some big changes from last time. Especially “Novocaine for the Soul” and “Firestarter” being dumped out. No 1996 songs made the wildcard cut, so only 10 songs qualifying for the decade poll. However, “California Love” picked up a few votes from voters who didn’t vote for it in 1995, and now looks solid for a wildcard entry.

31 voters voted for 272 different songs.

Unexpected #1 song! I guess all those first place votes add up though.

With Firestarter missing the cut, is this the first time an AM #1 of a year has missed making the poll?
