I'm going to guess some of the songs from the 50s. They always underperform their AM ranks in these polls.
Pretty sure that's the opposite of what he's asking... but that is true.
Yeah I probably should have read that again...

Sinnerman is the obvious one, any other obvious forum faves? Is Cash’s Hurt in the top 1000?

By the way, can all these predictions and other mentions of what is still to come go to the prediction topic? I don't like to think to much of what is ahead and still have some surprises.

Most of the 1950s music I like is jazz, classical, blues or Elvis. To me the rock and r&b from that era is hard to get into because of my unrelated biases against music that sounds packaged for radio.

I don’t quite have the words to describe what bothers me about it, maybe “Emotionally fabricated” is the closest.

Same reason I haven’t found much I like on top 40 radio since 1998.

A lot of huge changes from the last poll in that bunch. I didn't vote for Fade Into You but it's cool to see it that high. I love the higher placements for This Must Be the Place, Idioteque, Ashes to Ashes, and Glory Box, though I think many of those have been in the top 200 before and just under-performed last time. Interesting that there is only one Beatles song and no Dylan or Stones songs in that set, though I assume that's just the calm before the storm.

The placement for Bizarre Love Triangle is one of the biggest surprises on the list. I didn't see it coming from the individual polls, and typically the big New Order songs outside of Blue Monday haven't performed this well. Very nice to see. Now maybe we can get Ceremomy up this high next time.

While Running Up That Hill was one of the biggest gainers, I thought it would be even higher given Kate Bush's continued increase in popularity on the forum (including from myself).

I feel exactly the opposite! “Wake Up” might be my least favorite on Funeral these days.

I used to think Rebellion (Lies) was the best, but now I totally agree with you. Though I wouldn't go as far as saying it's the weakest (that would be Crown of Love), I'd put Wake Up first and many of the other songs, including the underrated Haiti and In the Backseat, over Rebellion.

"In the Backseat" is my favorite, but "Rebellion" is a close second for me.

"In the Backseat" is my favorite, but "Rebellion" is a close second for me.
When I first heard Funeral and discovered this site, I thought, how in the world is Rebellion ranked ahead of Wake Up? Wake Up is this epic, grandiose masterpiece, and that was obvious on the first listen. But Rebellion has steadily grown and grown on me because of its subtleties and how well each part of the instrumentation weaves together. Can’t go wrong with any of the songs you guys mentioned though.

The biggest surprise for me in this section was Everybody Wants to Rule the World. It’s a great song, and I voted for it, but I never got the impression the forum loved it quite this much.

Hang on a second that last bit of Une annee sans lumiere when the guitars come in is probably the best moment on the whole album in my opinion.

At this point there aren't many surprises, but it was good to see some new faces in Sinnerman, Enjoy the Silence, and I Feel Love. I can't remember any of those making the top 100 in any of our previous polls. Alone Again Or looks like it made a huge jump, but really it seems more like 2015 was the outlier.
