Q Magazine has ceased to exist in August, so no Song or Album lists this year.

Is Canadian magazine Exclaim eligible?

Their website's Alexa rank is 113,016, so well within the margin. The website includes a lot of reviews, and there is a printed version, though it is not exclusively about music as they talk about all things culture.

Their lists aren't on their website yet, but I can definitely try to catch their latest print issue which appears to have them in it.

They've been included in the albums spreadsheet for years now. I don't think they've ever done a songs list though?

I don't think there's a way to comb through all of them automatically: I usually just go straight to Alexa's website to see if whatever site I have in mind seems eligible or not. https://www.alexa.com/siteinfo

In Perú has a fanpage of Facebook: Rock Achorao' , they make a List with the best songs of each year, are more of 1 Person, and sometimes invite other people from latin american indie blogs to colaborate in the list. My english is so bad, but is elegible?

I did some very rough Excel work because I was interested in determining what songs have made several lists. This doesn't include the les inrockuptibles list because the formatting made it to difficult to use Excel formulas. But it looks like it should be fairly close between at least four songs.

Also, full disclaimer that this process is very messy, and therefore nowhere near 100% accurate. So I can't wait to see the official results, Ron!

Song | Artist | List Count | Avg Rank
Savage Remix | Megan Thee Stallion | 10 | 10.8
WAP | Cardi B | 10 | 14.1

Fiona and Taylor suffer vote-splitting situation. Instead of focusing on one or two tracks usually official single, most of them spread their love to other album tracks.

The only official results are the Henrik results and they're not coming soon.

I hope Ron brings us their results but yours are really good.

This list would not be eligible.

For a list to be eligible, it must come from a publication (a professional magazine, a blog, etc.) or a state radio/tv channel. There are more criterias to be met after that, like how big the magazine is, but it definitely excludes Facebook groups.

The Latin American indie blogs the collaborators come from may be eligible however.

Thank you so much for this! Even if it's not 100% accurate, it is still very useful as I try to build my own list.

I find it very interesting that Savage is edging WAP, it was definitely one of the duels I was interested to see unfold. I think I prefer Savage, but I was expecting WAP to be the runaway winner. Goes to show that Megan Thee Stallion is having one of the biggest musical years.

I got a question: the eligibility of Pazz & Jop was because it was a Critics Poll or because it was a Village Voice publication? Because in other countries you can find some critics polls (with participation of journalists from different music media) but not necessary in a magazine or website with an Alexa Top popularity.

Last year the Pazz & Jop Ripp Off was included although was organized via Facebook.

Such polls have to be judged case by case I think. What kind of following they have, etc.
