Albums and Songs of 1986 Poll

Post by Moonbeam » Thu Aug 01, 2019 4:42 am

Come one, come all to the poll that will celebrate the yellowest decade of them all, the 1980s! :happy-partydance:

Next up will we kick it like it's 1986, now.

Image

A few things remain the same with the decade poll, and a few things will be different.

What will remain the same is that I will ask you to post ranked lists of your favorite albums and songs of each year. Keeping with recent tradition, the top 10 albums and songs from each year will automatically qualify for the final, and albums and songs in the 11-20 range will become eligible to be "wildcard" entries. At the end of the 10 yearly polls, the top 50 of the 100 candidates will qualify for the finals based on a new wildcard point system:

Wildcard points = (Yearly points)/(number of ballots)

The biggest change is the point system. Your ranked albums and songs will be assigned points using the following formula:

300/(rank + 2)

Moreover, I will assign points to all of your ranked entries, not only your top 15. Lists must have a minimum of 5 albums and songs to be eligible, but feel free to come up with extended lists if you like - every ranked album and song will receive points!

The deadline for your 1986 lists is 11:59pm forum time on August 31st.

Formatting:

It would be helpful to me if you could use the same delimiter between your rank and the artist as you use to separate the artist from the album/song. Something like 1 | Depeche Mode | But Not Tonight works great!

Eligibility:

Any song (including a re-recording of an older song) is eligible if it was released in 1986. I will use the following hierarchy to determine eligibility:

1. AM
2. Discogs/RYM
3. Wikipedia

If you include a song or album you think is questionable, it would help me if you could indicate the source it comes from (album/EP/single).

And we're off!

Here's a few recommendations from outside of the AM list. I've seen a few of them on lists already, which is awesome!

Game Theory - The Big Shot Chronicles
Another year, another Game Theory gem. This is probably their album with the most pop sensibility.

Henry Flynt - You Are My Everlovin / Celestial Power
"You Are My Everlovin" is a brilliant piece of music.

Siekiera - Nowa Aleksandria
Oh yeah, another post-punk album. But this time the band is Polish!

I see "Ain't Nobody Home" as being released in 1966. Is there a 1986 version?

I also can only find a 1989 date for "She Set Fire to the House".

You are correct on Tate. I actually see 1987 for She Set Fire to the House, so I'll plan to include it next month:

It’s looking like There is a Light That Never Goes Out is on the way to the most sweeping victory in any of the year polls thus far.

I'm so very disappointed that the Tuxedomoon album does not have a title track. I will have to content myself with 16 "Ship of Fools" songs (the best one I know at the moment being by World Party).

Loving that "Ship Of Fools" list!

I'm not one for analysing why I like songs much, but reading the lyrics to World Party's Ship Of Fools, that were included in the list, made me realise they have a big factor in why I love that song so much.

"Avarice and greed are gonna drive you over the endless sea
They will leave you drifting in the shallows or drowning in the oceans of history
Traveling the world, you're in search of no good, but I'm sure you'll build your Sodom like you knew you would
Using all the good people for your galley slaves
as you're little boat struggles through the warning waves"

Angry lyrics to a super catchy tune - can't beat it. (Well, okay, 2 songs can beat it, as I ranked it no. 3!)

I'll be voted for Erasure's Ship Of Fools too in the 1988 poll - fantastic song.

I'll need to check out the other 14 Ship Of Fools's now...
