Albums and Songs of 1983 Poll

Post by Moonbeam » Wed May 01, 2019 3:14 am

Come one, come all to the poll that will celebrate the yellowest decade of them all, the 1980s! :happy-partydance:

Next up will be your favorite albums and songs of 1983, yet another outstanding year!

Image

A few things remain the same with the decade poll, and a few things will be different.

What will remain the same is that I will ask you to post ranked lists of your favorite albums and songs of each year. Keeping with recent tradition, the top 10 albums and songs from each year will automatically qualify for the final, and albums and songs in the 11-20 range will become eligible to be "wildcard" entries. At the end of the 10 yearly polls, the top 50 of the 100 candidates will qualify for the finals based on a new wildcard point system:

Wildcard points = (Yearly points)/(number of ballots)

The biggest change is the point system. Your ranked albums and songs will be assigned points using the following formula:

300/(rank + 2)

Moreover, I will assign points to all of your ranked entries, not only your top 15. Lists must have a minimum of 5 albums and songs to be eligible, but feel free to come up with extended lists if you like - every ranked album and song will receive points!

The deadline for your 1983 lists is 11:59pm forum time on May 31st.

Formatting:

It would be helpful to me if you could use the same delimiter between your rank and the artist as you use to separate the artist from the album/song. Something like 1 | Irene Cara | Romance '83 works great!

Eligibility:

Any song (including a re-recording of an older song) is eligible if it was released in 1983. I will use the following hierarchy to determine eligibility:

1. AM
2. Discogs/RYM
3. Wikipedia

If you include a song or album you think is questionable, it would help me if you could indicate the source it comes from (album/EP/single).

And we're off!

Do you mind if I count this as a vote for Japanese Whispers? That has already gotten a few votes and contains all of the same songs plus two more.

These ones are from 1984, as far as I can find. Do you have sources for 1983?

I was faced with a choice at a difficult age. Would I write a book? Or should I take to the stage? But in the back of my head I heard distant feet. Che Guevara and Debussy to a disco beat.

Oops, no, it's meant to be Pillar To Post by Aztec Camera. I had Echo & The Bunnymen doing Shipbuilding too!

Corrected now.

Oops. I completely missed Aztec Camera's Oblivious being an '83 track.
Moonbeam, Could you please fit it at No. 5, bumping down U2 - SBS onward and removing ZZ Top?

Re: Albums and Songs of 1983 Poll

Post by Henrik » Fri May 17, 2019 6:21 pm

Will votes for Katrina and the Waves’ ”Walking on Sunshine” from 1983 (original version and AM entry) and 1985 (popular version) be combined, or how does it work?
Everyone you meet fights a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.

I think it makes sense to combine versions. If more than one version is particularly popular, both will be highlighted when it comes to the final poll.

It's too hard for me to keep track of which version of a song poster's prefer when there could be multiple versions in the same year, for example.

Did you know that Underworld's first smash hit is from 1983 and it is called Doot-Doot? And did you know that the singer from Freeez is not a middle aged black lady but a whiteness twentity called John Rocca?

Save "Runaway" for 1984 and "New Sensation" for 1987. "Run to You" is from 1993, not 1983. I'll move the rest of your songs up.

Thanks Akhenaten for reminding me of this song in the recommendations thread.
It's almost criminal that this isn't on AM (and that I forgot it)

I think it makes sense to combine versions.
In that case, I'll save my vote for "Walking on Sunshine" for the 1985 version. I've removed it from my list and added at Billy Idol's "Rebel Yell". Thanks!
...will keep us together.
