The Top Songs of 2013- RESULTS

Post by Nick »

Hello everyone, and welcome to the results of the "Top Songs of 2013" poll! First off, I would like to thank all of the voters who contributed lists. Here they are, all 37 of them...

Absolutely
antonius
blackandbianco
Brad
Chambord
Charlie Driggs
Chilton
Craig
Dan
DaveC
DocBrown
Gillingham
Greg
guigs2910
Henrik
Henry
Jackson
jamieW
Jeff
Jonah

Michel
Miguel
Mindrocker
Moonbeam
Nassim
Nick
Otisredding
phil
PlasticRam
Romain
slick
sonofsamiam
Stephan
Timmywing
whuntva

Here are a couple notes about the presentation. First off, the "Fans" section is for people who placed a song in their top ten, or if nobody placed that particular song in their top ten, it is the person who gave the song its highest ranking. Second off, the "Critic's Ranking" section is the song's ranking on the EOY 2013 spreadsheet that Harold has meticulously compiled. Third off, I don't really have a set schedule as to when I will post updates, but you should expect at least two a day. And finally, all remixes of songs counted as votes for the original song too (like for a certain David Bowie song, which received votes for both a popular remix and the original song).

And without further ado, here's the first batch of songs in the top 50, starting off with a series of ties...

You guys do know you're allowed to post comments here....right?......right??

Anyway, I will post the first part of the top 21 (there was a tie for 20th place, so it's a top 21 instead of a top 20) later tonight!

I'm glad "I Need My Girl" got a high listing here, I'm surprised the critics totally missed this one. I feel it was overshadowed by some of the other stellar tracks on Trouble Will Find Me

Well when it came right down to it, it was no surprise as to who won! Everyone knew "Get Lucky" would win, and look what happened! With 364 points, "Get Lucky" blows every other song out of the water. Only "Reflektor" stood a chance, and even that lost by a significant amount. Thank you all for voting and reading this thread! I hope to post the start of the albums thread in a day or two.

As seen in the fans section, no one is happier than me about this. I am really pleased to see that it got 10 more votes. It would actually have been number 4 even without my vote!

And thanks Nick! I thought the formula you chose would result in close to a copy of the EOY spreadsheet, but it turned out a lot different (and better!). Great show!

The only place I've seen songs like "Brandt Rhapsodie" and "Giorgio By Moroder" get so much attention is the AMF. No wonder I love this place. ;)

By the way, great job with the presentation, Nick! I'm thrilled to see two of my top five make the top five (including the aforementioned "Giorgio").

I really like our list this year. Great songs like "Get Lucky", "White Noise", "Retrograde" were obviously going to make it, and then 'surprise' "Giorgio by Morodor" (at least a surprise to those who didn't look in the individual list thread that much) has a great placement. Even the VW track was a surprise--didn't see it on many critics lists. The one track I really don't get is "Dance Apocalyptic"--as someone who voted for her two big 2010 singles in my top 10, I found this single disappointing and a tad hokey. I think "Q.U.E.E.N" would've been a better choice.

Some awesome selections down the list too. John Grant! The Knife! Julia Holter! Deafheaven! "Avant Gardener"! Nice voting this year, guys.
