1900-1959 Individual Lists Submissions Thread

Post by jamieW » Sun Apr 17, 2016 2:22 pm

Welcome, everyone, to our celebration of the first half of the 20th century! I’m looking forward to discovering as much great music from this era as possible based upon the lists and recommendations from our knowledgeable forum members. I’m really enthused and encouraged by the responses I’ve received so far!

Here are the general rules. The good news is that, if there is an outcry about any of these, we have plenty of time to make adjustments given that the deadline isn’t until October. ..

1. There are actually three separate polls going on here: The Top 100 Songs from 1900-1949; The Top 100 Songs From 1950-1959; and the Top 50 albums from 1900-1959. (Though, if anyone finds an album from 1900, I’d be especially surprised/impressed!) To make things as simple as possible, the lists for all three polls can be submitted in this thread. You may vote in one, two, or (hopefully) all three polls.
2. Unlike our usual decade polls, these will be just one stage, based upon the calculations of the submitted lists (similar to our all-time lists, yearly polls, etc.).
3. As always, the lists can include as many songs as you’d like to include. (I always enjoy perusing the longer lists, since they often have more unfamiliar songs/albums to me.) However, only the top 100 will be counted for the two songs polls, and top 50 for the overall albums poll.
4. The deadline for submitting lists will be midnight, forum time, on October 31st. (However, I will accept late entries right up until the time I send the finalized list to the eventual volunteer for the rollout. It should take me a day or two to double and triple check for possible mistakes.)
5. Classical and film music will be included. I know comparing classical to pop music is nearly impossible, but I still want to offer everyone the opportunity to list their favorites from any and all genres. I definitely don’t think this will allow classical music to dominate, since there will be people who do not include it. I just think it was a very important transitional period for classical music, and would like to see it represented as such.
6. For the songs from 1900-1949, all versions will be counted together, with each artist receiving votes listed with the song. This will prevent vote-splitting amongst some of the most popular/oft-recorded songs from the era that could result in a song not making the Top 100 at all. Since this was not nearly as big of an issue in the fifties, songs by different artists will be counted separately here.
7. After responses from a number of participants from the past poll, I’m less certain about the need to include the previous lists from those who don’t participate this time. For now, I’m still planning on including them, since I can’t imagine not having those incredible lists represented. I will leave this up to everyone else; but if there aren’t a lot of objections, the Top 100 of those who don’t submit new lists this time will also be calculated in.
8. The thing I’m struggling with the most right now is the formula to use for the top 100 songs and top 50 albums. I’ve spent some time exploring those used for past polls, but am still uncertain which would work best. Fortunately, there’s still plenty of time to decide. I would appreciate any and all suggestions!

Thanks again to babydoll for creating the recommendation thread. Not only are there already great suggestions posted there, but I strongly encourage everyone to use the links provided from the previous polls as another means of discovery. I also would like to see anyone who has a preliminary list ready to go submit it in the recommendations thread so more people may discover/vote for your favorites. However, any lists submitted in this thread can still be edited right up until the deadline. All I ask is that you edit your previous post instead of creating a new one, and then let me know that you’ve made the edits.

Whew. After all that, if there are any questions, or something I’m missing, or even a massive wave of objections to anything above, please let me know. To put things mildly, I’m going to be extremely flexible with these guidelines. As I said, nothing is carved in stone yet, but there’s no time like the present to get started!

Thanks again, everyone!

Okay, I'm finally bumping this in the hopes someone is ready to post a list. (Thank you, DaveC, for reminding me: hopefully, you received one of my responses - it looks like they are out of my Outbox now. Until your reminder, I didn't even remember creating the actual submissions thread with a list of preliminary rules, so you saved me a lot of time. And thank you even more for volunteering to help out.)

Right now, with no lists submitted, I fear them all rolling in around October 29th or so, which would make it difficult for be to complete everything by November 15th, which is my goal. What I fear much more, however, is a lack of participation. I know (as Honorio pointed out in another thread) that this is a much younger forum than the first time this poll was conducted, and not everyone is enamored with music anywhere between 60 and 120 years old (which is perfectly fine). I am really hoping, though, that everyone who has expressed interest will vote. I've included the list of those who have expressed interest below:

babydoll (Now that I think about it, where has babydoll been lately?)
DaveC
notbrianeno
bonnielaurel
PlasticRam
BleuPanda
Listyguy
Romain
sonofsamiam
Honorio
Brad
Dan
Charlie Driggs
luney6
Bruno
nicolas (possibly, will use previous lists if he doesn't have time)
Henry

I just took all of these names from the rules thread, so please let me know if I'm missing anyone. To be honest, if everyone listed here contributes lists, I'll be perfectly happy. For now, as I've said, I would love recommendations from people who have hosted past polls regarding the formulas I should use for the Top 100 songs and Top 50 albums. To say I'm not a mathematician would be a massive understatement, so I truly would appreciate any and all suggestions.

Hopefully, the interest in this hasn't diminished at all. I will be bumping this regularly from now on in an attempt to get as much participation as possible.

Thanks, everyone!

Edit: Added Henry to the list above. He posted an excellent list in the recommendations thread, which I hope means he plans on participating, too.

Hello again.

Could everyone who still plans on submitting a list please respond in this thread? I am probably going to give it until 09/15 and then I might (sadly) have to pull the plug on this. (Leave it to me to have my first contribution to the forum crash and burn! To be honest, I don't think I've conducted this very well from the start. I thought making the deadline so far away would increase participation, but it appears to have had the opposite effect.)

The main reason I'd like to know now is that I don't want a few people to go through the trouble of submitting lists only to find out later that we don't have enough participants to make the poll worthwhile. Also, DaveC has offered to help, so I don't want him to put work into something that may not happen.

My goal is to get 15 people to participate (which is a smaller number than those who initially expressed interest). Again, nobody has to submit a list: I'd just like to get a count on how many plan on submitting lists by October 31st.

Thanks all!

I'll definitely submit a list as well. I've been participating in all the decade/period polls since the 2000s poll 5 years ago, and I don't intend to stop now! In fact, I've done a lot of listening for these 1900-1959 polls and have enjoyed it immensely. The average age of forum members might be getting younger, but I'd be surprised if there aren't enough participants to make it worthwhile. When the previous polls for this period took place, I was relatively uninformed about pre-1960s music, so I explored the lists submitted for those polls, and what I learned left me feeling more than just a little euphoric. Those previous polls were great, but I honestly think that there is potential for it to be even better this time around. And who knows, maybe some forum members (and lurkers) who are not that familiar with music from this period might learn something from it too, just like I did last time.

I think you're being way too hard on yourself. You've been handling this in a very courteous and diplomatic way, and your explanation of the rules above are expressed very clearly. And personally, I'm grateful for the amount of time given to submit lists. Also, the recommendation thread has been a goldmine for those intending to participate in the polls, or anyone who just wants to discover more about this period of music. As usual, I think people around here just appreciate it quietly.
...will keep us together.

Thanks for the responses, everyone. And thank you, Dan, for the kind words. I do tend to be rather hard on myself, so it was inevitable I'd find a way to blame myself for any lack of interest. I'll try to be a little more optimistic going forward. And you're certainly right about the recommendation thread - that thread alone has made this entire endeavor worthwhile!

Speaking of going forward, thanks, too, sonofsamiam for officially getting the ball rolling with a list that (as usual) defies all superlatives. In fact, it has inspired me to move ahead with the poll regardless of how many participants we have. (It also appeased a major concern I had: that including classical music may have discouraged some participation. However, after seeing sonofsam's list, I now feel even more strongly that this was the right decision.)

So the poll is on, come what may. I will try to bump this and the recommendations thread weekly so they remain in the public consciousness. Here's hoping all my fears of some doomed turnout are completely unfounded!

Ouch, this one can open a "nest of problems" with the classical music.
For me, the Suite Bergamasque was composed on 1890 and published on 1905. Wich date we need to take?
It's typical of the classical music where some works where published 10 or 300 years after their composing?!

Good question. I couldn't remember, so I had to search for the answer myself...

I wasn't aware of this. (I always thought of this as a 20th century classical piece.) We may need to take each on a case-by-case basis, but I want to be as flexible as possible when it comes to composed vs. published dates for classical music. In this case, I think it's fine to include "Clair de lune." In fact, it was #5 in the last poll, and Honorio did address this issue:

Composed by Claude Debussy in 1905 as the third movement of the Suite Bergamasque for piano (according to Wikipedia "Debussy commenced the suite in 1890 at age 28, but he did not finish or publish it until 1905, when he was 43").
"Clair de lune" is French for "Moonlight"
First published in 1905 , I haven’t found information about the premiere or the first recording.

Allmusic: "It is difficult to establish an appropriate chronological place for Claude Debussy's Suite Bergamasque within his output. He originally composed the piece in 1890, but it was not published until 1905, and the extent to which he revised it during the interval is unclear. Certainly the published work is a great stylistic advance over the few short piano works which preceded it during the late 1880s and early 1890s, but whether that advance is due to an early maturity or to much later alteration will perhaps always elude historians."

Thanks Jamie.

We just to be all agree before the start. If we take the forst publication, I'm OK with that !
After, I'm not sur to include any classical music piece, except maybe some aria (because too much great music and too different) :mrgreen:

I'm pleased you said that. I'm not at all opposed to including classical music. But I found it so hard to meaningfully rank orchestral music against popular songs that I put it into the too hard basket. I did include a few solo instrument works but nothing orchestral. Also I have plenty of 00-40 songs to make a good hundred I'm happy with. Unexpectedly, I'm not so happy with my 50-59 songs list, so I might find space for some classical works to get to a satisfying 100.

Although I did not participate in the decades poll, I am very much interested in participating in this thread. If allowed, I have a query on classical music - I find it hard to find information on the year of first publication compared to year composed or the year it premiered which is what is usually profiled in wikipedia. But based on the foregoing, it is safe to assume, if I cannot find the year of publication, that the classical piece was published on the year it has its premiere. For example, Four Last Songs by Richard Strauss was composed in 1948 but premiered in 1950 (posthumously), so the year of publication is 1950, making it eligible in 1900-1949 list and not 1950-1959 list, right?

I've given this some thought, and I think the way we can handle it is to address this only if it becomes an issue. For example, if you vote for "Four Last Songs" in the 1900-1949 songs section, we'll only worry about it if someone else votes for it in the 1950-1959 section because we wouldn't want the vote-splitting. If everyone votes for a song/composition in the same section, problem averted!

Also, regarding classical in general, since I knew some wouldn't include it, I didn't worry too much about the potential problem of complete classical domination. I do think this will provide a nice balance between popular and classical music. (Although I am hoping that a few others will include classical besides just sonofsamiam and me! The early 20th century really was a great time for classical music.)

Re: Clair de Lune ... generally, I went with composition date for all classical, but Clair de Lune was a bit of an exception because I remembered reading somewhere that the amount of revision essentially brought it's completion up to the 1905 publication date. That, plus the fact we included it last time, led me to including it this time.

On the other hand, I can be completely inconsistent; for example, I left out Pictures at an Exhibition, since it was written (and premiered in its piano state) by Mussorgsky in the 19th century, though we all of course know and love the 20th century Ravel orchestral re-arrangement. :shrug:

And yeah, there is A TON of great classical from these years --- all the more reason to acknowledge it when we have the opportunity!!!

Great list, bonnielaurel! It's ironic that, after all my worrying about lack of participation, I'm not entirely sure I'll be submitting an albums list myself. My main focus has been listening to as many songs as I can; and, while I have heard quite a few albums from this era, I'm more concerned about those that would be left out simply because I haven't heard them yet. I'll probably wait until sometime next month to decide if I'm going to submit an albums list or not.

How about the same song but sung by different singers? For example, Great American Songbook gems where there is divided opinion on the definitive recording such as Billie Holiday's version of "Summertime" (1936) and like Sarah Vaughan's "Summertime" (1950) or the numerous versions of "Stardust"; is this considered vote-splitting? or are they considered as separate entries (which will lessen the ranking of the song, more so if split between eras)?

To avoid vote-splitting, we are combining all versions of the standards in the 1900-1949 portion and just making a note in the presentation of which version each person voted for. You brought up a tricky example regarding "Summertime," though. In this case, you can vote for the Billie Holiday version in the 1900-1949 poll and also the Sarah Vaughan version in the 1950's poll, since we are not combining versions in the 1950's poll. (For example, the versions of "Blue Suede Shoes" by Carl Perkins and Elvis will be treated separately.) Please let me know if this makes sense.

Yes, that makes sense. So it's best for voters to avoid putting two versions of the same song in the 1940-1949 list.

Not ashamed to admit that I'm a little bit in love with all 3 lists submitted so far. :D

I have a question about classical music, though (especially about classical works that do not have more than 3 or 4 movements/sections). Will votes be counted for a movement/section of a work or for a work in its entirety? To give an example: I want to vote for Joaquín Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez, but I'm finding it incredibly hard to decide whether I prefer the first movement or the second.

I.

II.


Should I vote for one movement or both?
...will keep us together.

I think in a case where a voter can't decide between movements in the same classical work, it's fine to list both and I'll give the same points to each. There will be cases where movements will be practically inseparable, so I want everyone to be free to vote for all the music they love. (Basically, it would be like "A Love Supreme" where some treat "Pursuance/Psalm" as one piece while others - including myself, since "Psalm" is my favorite part of the album - will separate the two.) If anyone thinks this will be a problem, please let me know.

Classical music is really problematic; I have the same problem with Holst's Planets particularly, Mars and Jupiter.
So you mean if I put "Planets" at number 1 all seven planets/movements will get the maximum points? However if I put "Mars" at No. 1 and "Jupiter" at No. 2 then they will get separate points and the rest of the planets get none? I find it hard to swallow.

Also, we already see one voter voting for the classical composer and one voter voting for an orchestra's recording of a composer's work or even several works in one position (i.e., Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue at 8 & An American in Paris at 195 vs.
Columbia Symphony Orchestra/New York Philharmonic/Leonard Bernstein's Rhapsody in Blue; An American in Paris at 24). How do you take this into account?

Lastly, are recordings by opera singers allowed? like Marian Anderson's "Schubert's Ave Maria" or Maria Callas' "Giordano's La mamma morta"?

I really hope not to make things more complicated than they need to be. Dan asked how he should handle the first two movements of the same symphony (that he apparently likes equally well), and I'm trying to be as lenient as possible with this. When you bring up Holtz's Planets, and Mars and Jupiter are your favorites, then why would you want to put the entire work at #1? If you truly like "Mars" more than "Jupiter," then why wouldn't you put "Mars" at #1 and "Jupiter" at #2? You might find it hard to swallow, but I'm just trying to make everyone happy. I know that's not possible (obviously), but I'd still like to try.

And I really don't understand the problem with someone putting an orchestra recording vs simply naming the composer. I've already said that (like the previous poll) different versions of a "song" will be combined. This would certainly apply to different symphony recordings of the same classical work. Bonnielaurel's vote for Bernstein's "Rhapsody in Blue; An American In Paris" is for the albums poll, not songs, so these would not need to be divided. (I'm sure Bonnie would separate them for the song poll.)

This is a poll to celebrate the works that were either composed or recorded/published from 1900-1959. Others can jump in and correct me, but the way I looked at it was that the songs/classical "pieces," would be composed/recorded inside this period. However, any classical albums that were released in this period are eligible (as in bonnielaurel's list). Therefore, if an opera album is recorded in these years, it would be eligible. This makes sense to me, but maybe I'm not explaining it very well...

Thanks, Dexter - I appreciate your understanding. I wrote my response before I went to bed last night after a particularly long day; and when I read it this morning, I thought a couple of parts came across rather defensive. (It might be a little soon to start cracking under the pressure of hosting my first AM poll.) I'm looking forward to your list.

I'm still putting together my list and exploring new albums/songs, but I just wanted to express that I definitely plan on participating. Thanks to jamieW for hosting this poll, and thanks to everyone who's submitted lists so far for giving me so many good recommendations!

I'm thoroughly enjoying all of these lists. The more I listen, the more I love this period of music. It's seeming likely that I'll be the last person to post my list at 'round midnight on Halloween since I'm still making every effort to listen to everything that I can. What a treat this has been - thanks, everyone!

9. Paris Sisters / Love How You Love Me (1945)

Henry, unless I'm really missing something, I believe this was released in 1961. (I thought maybe there was an earlier version I didn't know about, but according to RYM, The Paris Sisters didn't even form until 1953.) I will move everything beneath it up a notch.

14. Golden Gate Quartet - Down by the Riverside (1966)

Bonnielaurel, was this a mistake? You have it listed as 1966 and, while I can't find the exact date of the song recording, the earliest mention I do see is on a 1963 album. Please let me know if I'm incorrect. If not, I'll move everything else up a notch...

(By the way, another great list! I'm looking forward to listening to the songs I'm not familiar with.)

Thanks. According to discogs.com it's on their 1958 album Shout for Joy. I'll edit the year in my list.

They give awards for that music? I thought just ear plugs. (Woody Allen in Annie Hall)

Thanks! I figured it might be something like that, since the Golden Gate Quartet can be a little challenging for release dates. I'll make this 1958 in the spreadsheet.

1900-1949 Songs/Pieces

Contrary to what I said in the recommendations thread, I have decided to include all of my favourite classical works that are eligible for this 1900-1949 songs poll. I realized that I was overthinking things. All music released within this period should be eligible, right? So fuck it.

Cheers, Dan! I'm really happy you decided to include Classical. You have a unique but deserving #1. ("Finlandia" is likely to make my Top 100, too.) This is shaping up to be a very unpredictable poll indeed, which is always a good thing!

Excellent lists so far! Love yours, Dan!

Favourite songs 1900-1949

After checking some of the wonderful recommendations on this thread (everyone's but especially Dan's and sonofsamiam's), after listening again to the list I posted back in 2010 (and realizing that I still like it a lot, you can check this original list here) and after thinking quite a lot about it I've finally decided to post more or less the same list (with some minor changes). In 2010 I pre-selected four songs of different styles with 25 songs each (Classical, World Music, American Folk and Jazz) and I mixed them all into the main list. Now I've included some changes, exactly 10 songs (most of them influenced by the lists posted so far in this thread but some of them by the last year Classical Poll), you can see these changes after the main list.



1. SERGEY PROKOFIEV "Romeo and Juliet, Suite No. 2 for Orchestra: I. Montagues and Capulets" (1936, #50 in my all-time list)
The introduction of the piece "Montagues and Capulets" from the "Romeo and Juliet" Suite for Orchestra (not on the "Dance of the Knights" of the original music for the ballet) builds from silence climaxing quickly into an impressive dissonant orchestral chord. A friend of mine used to say that this chord "contains all the music in the world". Maybe he was true but for me the real highlight is that dramatic ascending and descending melody played by the string section over an ominous march rhythm sustained by the double basses and horns. The sounds of the tragedy.

2. BILLIE HOLIDAY "Strange Fruit" (1939, #63)
The best song of the first half of the XX Century according to AM Forum (on the 2010 poll) is this protest song that portrays solemnly the lynching of black people in America. And that's because it represents like no other song the soul of the African American people, this immeasurable sadness that sums decades and centuries of suffering and injustice. Everyone would file this song under the label of Jazz but it surely got this thing that it's called the Blues.

3. JUDY GARLAND "Over the Rainbow" (1939, #66)
Yes, I know, it's a children's song, a lullaby. But, since my first conscious exposition to it was as part of the stage show "Flowers" directed by Lindsay Kemp (that I saw in 1980 when I was 14 years old) where it was sung by a blind black drag-queen dressed in rags (played by Jack Birkett) and surrounded by transvestites, whores and pimps, the song despite its naivete and sweetness always comes to me as twisted and bizarre. And that’s what it’s not. Or maybe yes? Or maybe there is no innocence without perversion?

4. DJANGO REINHARDT (QUINTETTE DU HOT CLUB DE FRANCE) "Nuages" (1941, #112)
1985, Place de Montmartre, Paris, a twenty-year old Honorio with a group of friends from the University on a summer trip. While my friends were being portraited by street painters I ventured into a dark Café when two guitar players played Jazz. I asked them to play "Nuages" and they quickly attacked it in a quite routinary but impeccable manner (probably they played it before a thousand times). "Nuages" is the sound of Paris to me.

5. LOTTE LENYA "Seeräuberjenny" (1931, #113)
"Pirate Jenny" struck a young Bob Dylan when he saw Lotte Lenya in the show "Brecht on Brecht" in a Greenwich Village theatre in 1962. "This piece left you flat on your back and it demanded to be taken seriously. It lingered," he said in his "Chronicles," "it wasn't a protest or topical song and there was no love on it." He decided to experiment his own songwriting "totally influenced by 'Pirate Jenny.'. Now we know why "When the Ship Comes In" or "The Times They Are A-Changin'" got no love on it too.

6. CHARLIE PARKER SEPTET "A Night in Tunisia" (1946, #134)
Bebop. Every music style must generate a sub-style destined to avoid its trivialization and decadence. That was bebop for Jazz. White audiences and musicians tempered the primitive pulse of original Jazz. Bebop musicians returned the black to Jazz, with jungle rhythmic patterns (Gillespie used Latin rhythms when he wrote "Night in Tunisia") and a wild and even arrogant velocity (listen to the demonically fast Parker "famous alto break" at 1'18").

7. CARLOS GARDEL "Mano a mano" (1923, #148)
Argentinian tango was originally an instrumental style that accompanied a sensual dance born in the brothels of Buenos Aires. And that’s the way is still considered in anglo-saxon countries. Shamely because the lyrics on the "vocal" tango were outstanding. Poets like Discépolo, Castillo, Manzi or Le Pera wrote desperate stories about the love misfortunes in a rich dialect, the lunfardo, difficult to fully understand it even for a Spanish native.

8. LOUIS JORDAN and HIS TYMPANY FIVE "Five Guys Named Moe" (1942, #195)
Jump! Never a music style was named so appropriately. Some years ago I bought a compilation of Louis Jordan looking for his widely known "Choo Choo Ch'Boogie" but I became addicted to the first song on that CD, an irresistible uptempo comic number called "Five Guys Named Moe". Those five guys, Big Moe, Little Moe, Four-Eyed Moe, No Moe and Eat Moe, you know, when they start to beat it out / everybody jump and shout. Including me.

9. GLENN MILLER and HIS ORCHESTRA "Moonlight Serenade" (1939, #235)
I don’t remember the exact reason why Miller had to rearrange the main melody for a lead clarinet but I remember a scene on the movie "The Glenn Miller Story" writing it in a hurry just before the premiere. Anyway it was a master move, the sound of clarinets and muted trumpets gave it a dreamy atmosphere, like the opening of a door getting you back in time, to a period where young couples in love danced slowly to the sound coming from an old radio.

10. ROBERT JOHNSON "Crossroad Blues" (1936, #250)
That's where it all began. On a crossroad. At midnight. Somewhere on the Mississippi Delta. Robert Johnson had a meeting with the Devil. Johnson sold his soul to the Devil and in exchange he could play the guitar like no one else. And more important, since that moment he got the blues. The blues gave place to rock and roll, and the message of the Devil has been transmitted to successive generations. Some say that in that crossroad Johnson simply met someone that showed him the basic chords of blues. Anyway, it's the same, isn’t it?

Note: I've included on the Spotify playlists the first recording of the Classical works (if available). So you can listen there to Sergei Prokofiev or Maurice Ravel themselves conducting the first recordings of "Romeo and Juliet Suite No.2" or "Boléro," and to Sergei Rachmaninoff playing the piano part of his own "Piano Concert No.2." The sound quality is obviously lower than in posterior recordings but, beside the historical importance, the contrast with the original recordings of other styles on the playlist is not too striking. But in some cases (Debussy's "Clair de Lune" for instance) I could find information on Internet about which was the first recording.

Next… 1900-1959 albums!!

Thank you, my friend. Since joining the forum, I’ve felt that our ears are on a similar musical wavelength. And I’m very happy on that wavelength. :D So naturally I love your list too! In fact, when I first delved into pre-1960s music, your lists were some of the first I explored. You’ve had a bigger effect on broadening my music-related horizon than you might realize. So thanks and :happy-partydance:
...will keep us together.
