The scoring system I used for this poll was different to the standard polls we run, in that it used a win/loss method instead of an exponentially decaying point system. In this sense, the scoring system here weighs both positive and negative opinions largely equally, whereas the traditional scoring system weighs positive opinions almost exclusively. I can see the benefit to both approaches, and we could drill down into songs that do better or do worse under each system, but some statistics in favor of the new scoring system are the correlations between the overall rankings and the contributed lists.

The average Pearson, Spearman, and Kendall correlations between the overall rankings and the contributed lists for both the win/loss and exponential scoring methods:

Code: Select all

Correlation    W/L    Exp
Pearson       0.315  0.299
Spearman      0.310  0.292
Kendall       0.217  0.201
The median Pearson, Spearman, and Kendall correlations between the overall rankings and the contributed lists for both the win/loss and exponential scoring methods:

Code: Select all

Correlation    W/L    Exp
Pearson       0.362  0.341
Spearman      0.358  0.341
Kendall       0.255  0.231
The higher values suggest that contributors would tend to have greater alignment between their own lists and the overall rankings using the win/loss scoring system than the exponential scoring system.

230. Iron Maiden - Hallowed Be Thy Name (108)

Good shout- if not, then Raining Blood maybe? Both of which I'm sad to see so low :(

It had the fifth highest polarization! The most polarizing was “You Shook Me All Night Long”.

Excellent work, Moonbeam! I don't think I can top this for the 70s. Can't wait to see the album results!

Re: AMF Top songs of the 1980s!

Post by Rob » Thu Feb 20, 2020 2:24 pm

This was, great Moonbeam, but I expected no less! Let me join the group of people who loved the naming of the fan/ hater sections.

The list from #201 to 300 contains many expected titles, but also some real surprises (as well as at least a handful of big personal favorites, but that is inevitable). Planet Rock at #269 is the biggest shocker to me, but also the terrible showing of Beastie Boys (no longer a forum favorite?), Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos (a pattern emerges) and Brothers in Arms are notable. I guess Pour Some Sugar On Me and Pink Houses make sense as the last two. Too populist American, which seems to do badly overall.

And a lot of people still dislike Enya I guess.

Excellent job

Apparently The Cure is the Radiohead of the 80's here on the forum.

I preferred the Top 200 with the previous point system (of the 19 songs that came out of the original Top 200 only 4 were in the Top 200 on my list).

The idea of citing excerpts of music in the presentation is very good, i especially liked the pieces of music where I am listed as a fan. Although I think the phrases in This Charming Man are reversed.

Probably Running Up That Hill and Like a Prayer got their best peaks in all the polls, so I'm satisfied

The only song that didn't appear on the list and was in my Top 30 was Youth of America

If there’s a spreadsheet with both song ID and final ranking, I can generate an ordered spotify list quickly.

Def Leppard is an English band, but maybe people just hate this type of '80s act.

you guys are talking like it's a bad thing to be voted # 300 in the top songs of the entire decade!

Unique and interesting roll out. Wish I'd had time to vote, but it was just too daunting. Looking forward to the albums, which I did have a chance to vote for. But take a break, man, you deserve it.

I remember just being gobsmacked that Enya did well enough in the yearly polls to quality for the decade poll. No other artist received that response from me. (For the record, I do quite like Enya and that song.)

Thanks Moonbeam for running this poll. Throughout the poll over the year, I’ve found hundreds of new 80s songs to add to my collection and gained a new appreciation of the decade that I had to some extent dismissed in the past.

Looks like this scoring system is much more sensitive to having lower rankings. I think for this format, the points system makes a lot of sense and helps to reflect the votes.

Time for voter stats! These will contain the following:

First, stats about alignment between each voter's list and other lists. I'll post Kendall's tau for each voter with the overall list - the higher the number, the more aligned the voter's list aligned with the overall list. I'll also post the other voters with the 10 highest and 10 lowest Kendall's tau values for each voter in the Friends and Foes sections.

Next, stats about songs. First, I'll post the songs where each voter is the top fan or biggest hater, as judged by percentile. Do you wonder how your list impacted the overall rankings? The Balloons and Anchors will identify the songs which your list had the highest impact on raising the rank (balloons) and lowering the rank (anchors).

He, Craig, and Dexter all provided a list of their favorite songs and then a list of other songs they didn't want to rank but were familiar enough to put below their favorites. As a result, they have a bunch of ties for the next place after their final ranked song, and consequently, their percentiles for those songs are not as low as they would be compared to a list that ranks all the songs. Consequently, there weren't any songs for which their list gave them the lowest percentile.

And If wild cards were allowed:

Happy Mondays – W.F.L. (Think About The Future) [the song that started the 90s!]
The Clash – The Magnificent Seven
Pixies - Caribou
Fleetwood Mac – Gypsy
George Harrison – All Those Years Ago

Now shoot me! :)

You're on safe ground on the first two, I might use up my bullets for the other three though ;) Would much rather have TM7 than Rock the Casbah without a doubt!

As for albums, are we to see another purple reign?

Yup, songs list implies that. Btw, 1999 started it all for me in 1982... The magic when "Lovesexy" and "Sign O The Times" and even the Batman theme arrived in the shops (LP), wow... he was big then, Prince.

Depeche Mode named user is ashamed that Just Can't Get Enough got into the final vote... c'mon these were just 4 awkward jerks trolling aroung their keyboards.

I do like the 80's. The music from the decade feels simultanoeusly slick and overcooked because everyone was trying to get in on the new sound possibilities, while at the same time raw because these sound possibilities were new and non-mastered yet. So you do get a lot. Obviously this is a generalization and does not apply to many songs in this countdown.

Interesting fact is that in Poland 80s rather than the 70s is the classic rock decade. Most of the most famous bands, that do get voted for in the all-time countdown shows or w/e are from the New Wave era. After Solidarity movement there were many bands that were political and that led to a lot of inspired songwriting, and at the same time cult following of the bands that were out here. Musically the polish bands were kind of similar to the western world except there was less synthetizer focus. But likewise in 60s you had great psych-pop bands like Czerwono-Czarni or Niebiesko-Czarni. I'd have to look up if there is any reason why their names were so similar(its just color names: red-black and blue-black). I guess my point is in terms of music there was really no large setback between the western world and the communist sphere, at least from Polish perspecitve.

I should be able to start posting the album results fairly soon. I had an absolutely hectic week at work last week so wasn't able to do much, but I've started compiling data for the albums rollout - I'm through the first 20 or so and as such, may be able to start unveiling things soon. The pace may be a bit slower, or if people prefer, I could wait another week or so until I have more data and then have the pace be like the songs rollout.

I'd vote for whichever schedule causes you the least stress, Moonbeam. We know you'll do a stunning job of it either way! I shouldn't have brought up the subject of the album results anyway.

Sorry for the delay, everyone. It's been a crazy start to the semester work-wise due to new university policies and managing a course of 500+ students, many of whom can't attend campus due to travel restrictions related to COVID-19. I hope to have the rollout for albums start next week.

They've shut down hockey, and pro and college basketball, and now toilet paper isn't easy to find. A delay of a music rollout isn't too big of a deal at this point.
