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.

Many songs I find overrated in this group:
Pure Comedy’s popularity baffles me. The music isn’t really all that great, and the lyrics, which seem to be the main draw, are sort of uninspired in my mind. Never really been a FJM person tho, so maybe that’s it. Cranes in the Sky is good, but top 20 of the decade seems high. Good Times feels completely underwhelming, especially compared to last week’s Loud Places and anything by the xx. However, these three less than amazing tracks are combined with possibly the most disappointing exclusion from the EOD songs poll: Motion Sickness!

Heat 13:
68 | Phoebe Bridgers | Motion Sickness (2017)
62 | Arcade Fire | Reflektor (2013)
53 | Kanye West | All of the Lights (2010)
87 | Kendrick Lamar | DNA. (2017)
72 | Father John Misty | Pure Comedy (2017)

Heat 14:
15 | Azealia Banks | 212 (2011)
171 | Weyes Blood | Everyday (2019)
20 | Carly Rae Jepsen | Run Away With Me (2015)
17 | Solange | Cranes in the Sky (2016)
49 | Jamie xx feat. Young Thug & Popcaan | I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Times) (2015)
