Top 200 Songs of the Decade Tournament: Round 2, Part 6

Post by Holden »

We have successfully cut our list down to 100 songs from the 200. For each round of the tournament, I am going to implement a different style. Now, we are going to be getting this list of 100 down to 32. We will be doing this using lists of five songs, which must be ranked, and the highest average positions will move on. Here are this weeks two sets of songs to be ranked.

Also, shout-out to Midnight City, Seventeen, and Avant Gardener for absolutely DESTROYING last weeks poll, all three are in the Top 5 going by average rank. For those wondering, the other two in the top 5 are Oblivion and Thinkin Bout You

Heat 11:
1 | Robyn | Dancing On My Own (2010)
78 | David Bowie | Lazarus (2015)
126 | Deerhunter | Desire Lines (2010)
148 | Jamie xx feat. Romy | Loud Places (2015)
196 | James Blake | Limit to Your Love (2010)

Heat 12:
26 | Childish Gambino | This Is America (2018)

176 | Vampire Weekend | Diane Young (2013)

Playlist (Joanna Newsom isn't on Spotify, but should be very easy to find elsewhere)


Please rank all songs in both of these heats! Thanks! Let's see what the best song of the decade is! Deadline will be July 21st, exactly one week from the time of this post.

Diane Young is my least favorite song out of our entire EOD top 100. I cannot for the life of me understand its appeal, but that also goes for most VW songs for me.

There's barely a cigarette paper between my top 2, seems cruel to have them in the same group:

1. Jamie xx feat. Romy - Loud Places
2. Deerhunter - Desire Lines
3. David Bowie - Lazarus
6. Robyn - Dancing on My Own
7. James Blake - Limit to Your Love

4. Vampire Weekend - Diane Young
5. Childish Gambino - This Is America
8. Fiona Apple - Every Single Night
9. James Blake - Retrograde
10. Joanna Newsom - Good Intentions Paving Company
