200. Machine - There But for the Grace of God Go I
147 points / 2 votes

ArchCarrier, Tuesday, 11 April 2017 13:11 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Oops, sorry for the embed. But it's OK for one of the best disco tracks EVER.

ArchCarrier, Tuesday, 11 April 2017 13:13 (two weeks ago) Permalink

wow. stoked for this

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Tuesday, 11 April 2017 13:14 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I allllmost voted for that, but ended up leaning off of some of the really aggressively disco ones this time around. I clearly made the wrong choice.

insidious assymetrical weapons (Eric H.), Tuesday, 11 April 2017 13:15 (two weeks ago) Permalink

But "There But for the Grace" is easily one of my top 100 songs ever.

insidious assymetrical weapons (Eric H.), Tuesday, 11 April 2017 13:15 (two weeks ago) Permalink

the very idea that there are 199 songs better than "there but for the grace of god"!

Loved this back when I thought everything August Darnell touched is genius. Now I'm mostly ok with just hyping up Dr. Buzzard.

gospodin simmel, Tuesday, 11 April 2017 13:23 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Also yeah, top 200 countdown is appropriate for this poll.

Good start to the list.

xp

100 for #1, down to 1 point for #100.

Unranked tracks got the average of the remaining points on a ballot.

ArchCarrier, Tuesday, 11 April 2017 14:03 (two weeks ago) Permalink

As I said in the albums poll, it's basically impossible to rank James Brown alongside anything else. He just works in a different way. Like a subgenre or a subart even. Better yet supraart!

gospodin simmel, Tuesday, 11 April 2017 14:05 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I limited myself to the funk/soul stuff, but There But For The Grace Of God Go I is one of the greatest songs in existence

me too but i woulda nominated 2 others if I hadnt been unwell to nominate. Gutted my fave Mandrill song (Ape Is High) wasn#t nominated.

Sha-La-La is amazing cause it does all those terrible old timey things like a la la chorus and a novelty percussion and yet Green and Mitchell make it work

That O'Jays song is so great, glad someone else helped me to get it into the top 200.

ArchCarrier, Tuesday, 11 April 2017 16:32 (two weeks ago) Permalink

"Stayin' Alive" is great as well but feels out of place in this poll.

ArchCarrier, Tuesday, 11 April 2017 16:33 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I could do without "Stayin' Alive" in both this and the disco-only poll.

Hi five ArchCarrier!

I wanted to vote for Time To Get Down, which wasn't nominated, so I voted for my second favorite O'Jays song instead

Whoa, that Jacksons Sisters track rocks! I hadn't noticed it during the nominations process because I confused it with "You Sexy Thing" :)

ArchCarrier, Tuesday, 11 April 2017 16:48 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Thanks Arch! This may be my fave poll to date, at least in terms of the sheer range of material that I could vote for/listen to/discover.

I vote 60s next, but only because the 80s is too huge of a listening project for me atm.

some sad trombone Twilight Zone shit (cryptosicko), Friday, 14 April 2017 20:58 (two weeks ago) Permalink

So, are we doing the 60's or the 80's next?

I was thinking about doing the 60s next. Not very interested in the 80s.

ArchCarrier, Friday, 14 April 2017 20:58 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Don't know that I've heard or heard of "Band of Gold" or "O-o-h Child"

Choco Blavatsky (seandalai), Friday, 14 April 2017 20:59 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I knew Move On Up was going to take this poll as soon as it became apparent early on that the majority of voters were UK based. It's a great great song to be sure but it doesn't get nearly as much love in North America. This was true at the time of its release as well. The Jam cover may also have helped (see also "Stoned Out of My Mind") to cement its mythic status in the UK.

Ρεμπετολογια, Friday, 14 April 2017 20:59 (two weeks ago) Permalink

80s R&B is a v grim wasteland imo. There's good stuff but the charts are fucking dire.

Οὖτις, Friday, 14 April 2017 20:59 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Another potential stumbling point for an 80s poll: how would you narrow it down to only certain Prince and MJ tracks?

some sad trombone Twilight Zone shit (cryptosicko), Friday, 14 April 2017 21:01 (two weeks ago) Permalink

fwiw, 'Move On Up' only slipped into first place at the very end. 'Family Affair' was #1 for most of the time. The difference in points is also very small.

ArchCarrier, Friday, 14 April 2017 21:01 (two weeks ago) Permalink

My hot take is that I prefer the Destination disco version of "Move On Up."

insidious assymetrical weapons (Eric H.), Friday, 14 April 2017 21:02 (two weeks ago) Permalink

80s would be interesting I think - classic Stax/Motown/etc face-off will be fun too but idk if there will be many surprises. I feel the continuity between 70s soul/funk/disco and what came after is less mined-out; maybe that's just my own ignorance though.

I was 10 when Family Affair was a hit, and I (wrongly) fucking HATED it. I was 9 when Move On Up was a hit, and I always liked it, and later loved it.

The 80's would be more interesting definitely. The canon is very vague beyond Prince/MJ and I'm sure ilm could provide some solid perspective.

Well, thanks everybody for nominating so many great songs and making this such an ejoyable experience. I'll post back here whenever I'm ready to start a new poll.

ArchCarrier, Friday, 14 April 2017 21:30 (two weeks ago) Permalink

The 80's are a chance to talk about things like Shalamar, DeBarge, Stephanie Mills, Alexander O'Neal, Gap Band, Luther, Babyface, Rick James, Lionel, Teddy Riley and miss Jackson above all.

gospodin simmel, Friday, 14 April 2017 21:33 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Yeah, I didn't mean to imply before that the 80s were all MJ and Prince, just that I was worried that the others might get significantly crowded out in such a poll.

Wow, only one song got more than one #1 vote, and it finished outside the top 25.

I'd love to see the top 200 broken down by year.

Absolutely Epic poll ArchCarrier. I like the 50 per day.

I'll post my ballot later but one thing I can say: more people need to listen to Get Up Get Into It Get Involved by James Brown and In Time by Sly.

Wow, I love Freda Payne and Band of Gold too, but I had no reason to believe it would come in at no 6.

I've done a year-by-year breakdown for the Top 100:

1970 15
1971 15
1972 19
1973 14
1974 8
1975 6
1976 4
1977 5
1978 5
1979 9

That makes 71 for the first half of the decade, and 29 for the second half.

Thanks, ArchCarrier. This was fun. As mentioned on one of the other threads, I was mega-busy during the nominations and voting period so my ballot was thrown together at the last minute with tons of write-ins… and even then I completely forgot MJ's "Ain't No Sunshine" and The Commodores' "Sail On", two of my all-time favourite singles. These should have been in my top 3.

^oh yeah, and I had a one-artist rule, with exceptions made for The Stylistics, The Chi-Lites, The O'Jays and the Undisputed Truth

That makes 71 for the first half of the decade, and 29 for the second half.

Pretty much the inverse on my ballot.

One more vote for the 80s next. A 60s poll would have far fewer opportunities for reappraisals and rediscoveries.

OK, I'm cool with an 80s poll. But how to define the boundaries? Is Italo allowed? Who can come up with a good definition?

Also, for this poll we had 1 week nominating, 2 weeks voting/campaigning, 1 week rollout. Was this OK for all of you?

ArchCarrier, Saturday, 15 April 2017 18:53 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Maybe do it as an 80s R&B poll? There was an Italo poll not so long ago.

mike t-diva, Saturday, 15 April 2017 19:07 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Yeah, just call it R&B and let anyone nominate anything. The timetable seems ok to me.

Think an 80s poll would be great, guess I sort of grew up with lots of 80s R&B, but rarely hear about any of it beside Prince, Michael Jackson and a few hits like I Feel For You. Would be really good to have something to dig into from the mid 80s which often seems like a bit of a desert.

mike t-diva, do you have a list of each track with its year? I want to start filing these track poll winners for a thing.
