Numb by Andy Stott is doing much better than I expected, that's a good surprise ! Such is the first (I think) appearance of what my be my fav song of the year, Flutes.
On the other hand, The Full Retard is the song I like the least in Cancer 4 Cure...

Usher's Climax should be on the top 10 on the next spreadsheet update after this and Gorilla vs bear's list. I heard this song for the first time yesterday and I have to say I was quite impressed.

Except that G v B isn't eligible. There was a little mini-thread on this last year in the old forum; we were on the fence about the site, because on the one hand it has become quite popular, but on the other it's still basically a two-person blog and doesn't quite come up to the standards Henrik had set in terms of contributors (if that's changed, please let me know). From Henrik's last post on the matter (12/19/11):

"Only EOY lists from multiple writers are included in the spreadsheets and this blog has only two writers, which was deemed too little for the last year's spreadsheets. However, the blog has many visitors and has received awards and recognitions, so perhaps in this case two critics could be considered enough. There's a Wikipedia page about Gorilla vs. Bear but the notability of the article's subject is currently in question. My suggestion is that when and if Wikipedia decides to keep the page then their lists will be included at AM, but so far they are excluded."

The page is still there, but the notability issue is still up top as well. I think I'll open a new thread and copy the above, and ask Henrik to make a ruling.

Wow, great list! Like Nassim I'm glad to see "Numb" doing well, though I do like "The Full Retard" best out of the El-P songs despite the stupid title.

we (i.e. the staff) didn't know any of the rankings til it went live, so it's not just bias when I say: dang. great list.
