4. Danny Brown - Ain't It Funny v. 11. A Tribe Called Quest - The Space Program AIF is no less perversely entertaining for being a cry for help and Brown knows it. TSP can't hold the same attention with its understandable despondency.

2. The XX - I Dare You v. 5. Craig Finn - God in Chicago Two literate ballads square off- GiC revels in a rare moment of luck for a couple on a losing run and is immaculate in its details. IDY is more of a product of broad strokes but strikes a greater emotional chord with me in its yearning goading. I'm weighing up between this and On Hold as my top XX song for the EOY poll.

16. French Montana feat. Swae Lee - Unforgettable v. 10. Alvvays - In Undertow I can understand Swae Lee's success, despite not buying into it- he has his own dead-eyed hedonistic style, shows adaptability to a few genres and is a capable hook man, proven by Unforgettable's chorus. But French Montana...from my experience, his most memorable bars consist of repetitions of his own name, he can only make an impression on a song when he uses Autotune (badly) and here he is a passenger on his own track, again. There's an agreeable Afrobeats feel to this though. In Undertow carries an unmistakable 80s melody, which doesn't overbear the song.

8. Tyler, the Creator feat. Rex Orange County, Anna of the North and Corinne Bailey-Rae - Boredom v. 14. The War on Drugs - Pain Boredom is nothing deep but the production has a comforting glow and the vocals only enhance that effect. Pain could have done with the FX pedals being more prominent earlier in the track as they're the best bit.

9. LCD Soundsystem - how do you sleep? v. 13. U.S. Girls - Rosebud

3. Parquet Courts - Almost Had to Start a Fight/In and Out of Patience v. 6. Let's Eat Grandma - Falling into Me

7. Kamasi Washington - Fists of Fury v. 1. Lizzo - Boys

12. Christine and the Queens - Doesn't Matter v. 15. Robyn - Ever Again

Danny Brown - Ain't It Funny vs. A Tribe Called Quest - The Space Program

The best song on one of the best albums of the decade.

The xx - I Dare You vs. Craig Finn - God in Chicago
French Montana ft. Swae Lee - Unforgettable vs. Alvvays - In Undertow

I'm surprised In Undertow is even eligible for this poll. I thought it was an indie staple.

Tyler, the Creator - Boredom vs. The War on Drugs - Pain
LCD Soundsystem - How Do You Sleep? vs. U.S. Girls - Rosebud
Parquet Courts - Almost Had to Start a Fight/In and Out of Patience vs. Let's Eat Grandma - Falling Into Me
Kamasi Washington - Fists of Fury vs. Lizzo - Boys

Fists of Fury is looking like a potential favorite in this poll.
