The AMF Top Artists of All Time 2019 Edition

Postby TheLastEnemy » Fri Feb 01, 2019 11:02 pm

Submissions are now open for the 2019 edition of the AMF Top Artists of All Time. It's been three years since the last one, which was won by The Beatles.

The rules are as follows: Lists must contain at least 50 artists, up to a maximum of 200. You can submit lists with more than 200 on, but only the top 200 will count.

Lists can either be submitted here, or you can send a spreadsheet to chris.last@springfieldmind.org.uk . The closing date is 30th June at midnight GMT, so plenty of time to think about it.

Let's hope for as many submissions as possible, and bear with me as this is my first poll!

My first draft is based on a formula, with 60% weight based on my ranked song list, 30% based on my ranked album list, and 10% based on play counts since the start of 2017. I'm trying to catalogue my entire music collection and add total number of items owned as a 4th component, but I'm pretty happy with how things have shaken out. There were a few manual edits I made, but it looks pretty good to me.

My own method is that I simply assign each album and song a score based off their rating. A 10/10 piece is 50 points, 9.8 and 9.9 is 45, down to 8 and 8.1 works being worth 10. Then I just add up all the points for each artist (and make the songs worth something like .6 the strength of an album).

Though I also tend to make a few edits to it - specifically, I'll give a boost to bands that simply don't have enough output to keep up. So LCD Soundsystem isn't #1 with my formula, but I give them a boost because all of their albums are in my 9+ range and like 3/4 of their songs are in my 8+ range. But the formula at least gives a fair starting point.

My system is very simple: 2 points for a classic song (ca. top 1000), 1 point for a great song (ca. top 5000). That gives me a rough order, which I then adjust according to intuition or general impression.

No system or method, just roughly how I feel bout an act.
Then again, positions from about 50 onwards get slightly more systematic. But just by browsing discographies, not by assigning points or anything.

Having a look at a draft list, one of the questions will be how to group composite acts - perhaps distinct from a solo career. You might lump the Supremes along with "Diana Ross & the Supremes", then treat Diana Ross separately as a solo artist. Similarly Smokey Robinson with respect to the Miracles, but would you treat Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers separately from Tom Petty's solo stuff - you see many lists and polls that get the solo recordings mixed with the group recordings.

Why not do it in accordance with how they are sorted on the main site (eg Neil Young as the same as Neil Young and Crazy Horse but Diana Ross and Diana Ross And The Supremes as seperate)?

I'll do it this way, but sometimes it remains anti-intuitive. For example I have always felt that the solo careers of the Beatles are really separate entities, so it feels natural to have Lennon as a separate entry to the band he started with. But oddly I have always seen Simon & Garfunkel as part of the whole career of Paul Simon, perhaps because Simon was really the sole creative force for the duo (in the same way Tom Petty is for The Heartbreakers if you will). I guess that is the nature of music careers, which tend to be more collaborative than the ones of, say, a novelist.

Little Richard. He referred to himself as the queen of rock and roll.

To be fair, I'm not a very "female-fronted band" fan either. Kim Gordon and Kim Deal appear, the first "real" one is Kirstin Hersh from the Throwing Muses @ 30.

There were plenty of females in my top 200, just not way up in the top 20 or so. In the era I like best there were like 10 male acts for every female act.

I'll follow the trend and go with my most played artists for now. But this will definitely change, so don't bother tabulating this version. I think The Beatles are safe at least...

Some of these artists I listened to a lot as a teenager and hardly ever listen to anymore (Linkin Park was No. 4 in 2010), and I'm pretty sure "Original Broadway Cast of 'Hamilton'" won't make the final cut even though I love that show.

Dang :) You're right !
I've got a very special relationship with Stereolab. Not only do they play my ideal kind of Krautrock infused pop music (although my wife likes to call Laetitia Sadier "Mrs Monotone", and she is not entirely wrong), but I was privileged to invite them to play at a mini-festival in France (their first French date) at their very beginninngs (on the face of Super Electric only).
Great bunch of people, really friendly and unassuming. Then they went global.

Poll runner should know that Sixto Rodriguez and Rodriguez are the same artist. This has been a problem last two times there has been an artist poll.

Here's my method:
1 pt per song in ANY Spotify playlist that is NOT in my Library so as not to credit a song twice (other than my "sampling" ones that I use to try out tunes until I can decide how I feel about them)
3 pts per song in my Spotify library (or that WOULD be there if rights were available to Spotify)
5 pts per album owned by me physically from the artist (anthologies, bootlegs and live albums count)
10 pts per boxset owned by me physically from the artist
25 pts per concert by the artist I have attended
50 pts for "special" album artist has released (Although I have yet to compile this, they would likely appear in my personal Top 100 albums ever)

I plan to try and rank any artist that makes at least 5 Spotify appearances and then trim my final list down as needed.

I haven’t had a chance to edit mine. Could whoever is tabulating this add R.E.M. as my number five and bump everyone else down a spot?

I don’t want artists’ catalogue size to matter that much. I definitely prefer 10 great songs from a short career to 50 good songs from a long career, so I loosely thought of which 200 artists I would be able to make the best top 10-ish songs playlists. Then I did some finetuning based on whatever feelings I have for different artists and I was done.

I feel justified in being a George Michael fan knowing that the founder of Acclaimed Music is also a fan. :music-listening:

Nice playlist! I have also been making a Spotify playlist of my favourite artists (although I've been limiting it to one song per artist). It's a nice way of sorting and re-ordering my in-progress list before the deadline.

As a British citizen, I reserve the right to push the deadline back indefinitely until I get the result I want...
