Top 200 Songs of the Decade Tournament: Round 2, Part 5

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.

Heat 9:
8 | M83 | Midnight City (2011)
69 | Janelle Monáe | Make Me Feel (2018)
81 | Adele | Someone Like You (2011)
86 | Grimes | Genesis (2012)
113 | Jay-Z and Kanye West | Ni**as in Paris (2011)

Heat 10:
70 | Sharon Van Etten | Seventeen (2019)
71 | Jamie xx | Gosh (2015)
