Man, listening to Gibb songs and ABBA songs back and forth over the next couple weeks is gonna do me in with AWESOMENESS. (And then Fleetwood Mac after these.)

a disco poll would honour both Summer and Gibb

oh too late, never mind

gospodin simmel, Monday, 21 May 2012 18:19 (2 years ago) Permalink

concluding today with videos iirc

naw, I still haven't tabulated those. Dead cat, weekend work, sleepiness, y'know.

Anybody mind if I just call this one #20B (B for Bee Gees, fnarr) rather than redo the numbering again?

Abba and Bee Gees are definitely #1A when it comes to fashion sense.

I'm going to run a Brian Eno poll at #59. Excluding his work as a producer for hire, but including collabs with Cale, Fripp, Cluster, etc

Trey Imaginary Songz (WmC), Tuesday, 22 May 2012 21:20 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'd like to do a Wire poll, I suppose at #60.

Eno poll w/ productions would be so much more fun!

is finefinemusic's excel spreadsheet available anywhere? the link upthread seems to not be working...

expand to view the whole thread, it's been reposted a few times. I grabbed it from one of the recent links last week

If this one doesn't work, I can email you a copy. Is your ILX login address a good one to send the file to?

rolling out the ABBA results this week!

yorba linda carlisle (donna rouge), Monday, 4 June 2012 16:49 (2 years ago) Permalink

Cool! Here's a link to the results thread -- You can POLL, you can jive, having the time of your life -- ILM Artist Poll #20 -- ABBA (RESULTS THREAD)

I wish there was more Fleetwood Mac on Spotify -- I definitely plan to vote in that one, but there's a big 1969-1975 gap. Hopefully Youtube will provide.

Trey Imaginary Songz (WmC), Monday, 4 June 2012 17:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

The 1975 s/t is missing, which is very strange.

Ismael Klata, Monday, 4 June 2012 17:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

q: i know tuomas is doing a disco poll (that i am VERY excited about btw) and that they'll probably get pretty well-represented there but would there be any interest in a chic organization/bernard + nile poll? i would be interested in running it if so

yorba linda carlisle (donna rouge), Monday, 4 June 2012 17:58 (2 years ago) Permalink

That'd definitely work imo. What do you have in mind? Chic, production work, everything?

Ismael Klata, Monday, 4 June 2012 18:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

maybe limited to stuff they both were involved in? not sure yet

― Ismael Klata, Monday, June 4, 2012 12:43 PM (2 hours ago)

hahaha, Spotify is such a mess...check out the "additional tracks" on the 1968 s/t -- that's where they have the 1975 album tucked away.

Trey Imaginary Songz (WmC), Monday, 4 June 2012 19:49 (2 years ago) Permalink

would love a chic organisation poll

gospodin simmel, Monday, 4 June 2012 21:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

+1

Naive Teen Idol, Tuesday, 5 June 2012 21:23 (2 years ago) Permalink

hah at this rate i'll have two years to figure out how it'll work so i will go ahead and volunteer for it

also ABBA poll est fini, so i guess the fleetwood mac poll can start now?

yorba linda carlisle (donna rouge), Friday, 8 June 2012 02:29 (2 years ago) Permalink

The Fleetwood Mac timing is eerie.

clemenza, Friday, 8 June 2012 02:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

had the same thought

yeah :/

yorba linda carlisle (donna rouge), Friday, 8 June 2012 02:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

everytime i see that poll list i stop at #53 and think i have no idea how i'm gonna manage to put that ballot together

For your sake, I hope Neil & The Horse have good doctors on tour.

Hare Kinsey (C. Grisso/McCain), Friday, 8 June 2012 02:49 (2 years ago) Permalink

Dylan is one of about three where 20 songs will be no problem for me. Even with the Beatles, down towards the very bottom I moved from unequivocally love to like a whole lot.

ABBA will be the one poll in four where a hearse isn't close by. So yes, hang on, Neil.

clemenza, Friday, 8 June 2012 02:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

these should all be run simultaneously, starting tomorrow

spextor vs bextor (contenderizer), Friday, 8 June 2012 03:09 (2 years ago) Permalink

Bee Gees extended deadline is tomorrow, so I guess no need to hold off starting the Mac. I hope Shakey gets enough ballots to generate interesting results...

Donna R, you're in at #61 with the Chic Organization. Thanks for running the ABBA poll!

33. Velvet Underground solo careers - iatee


Is this VU and solo careers or just VU solo careers? Cause a Reed/Cale poll sounds like a lot of fun

kornrulez6969, Friday, 8 June 2012 03:42 (2 years ago) Permalink

it seems a bit weird to consciously skip VU, but limiting it to reed/cale could be more concise.

charlie h, Friday, 8 June 2012 03:47 (2 years ago) Permalink

should point out that the electronic dance music of the 00s will be happening soon-ish, and for people to vote in it.

reed/cale tho I was reconsidering doing it because I'm not sure it will get more than 10 votes

ILXmailed Clarke B

Biff Wellington (WmC), Monday, 11 June 2012 00:07 (2 years ago) Permalink

VU with solo careers is a great idea because the band's catalog is relatively small and the solo offshoots are kind of part of the same canon and it'd be interesting to see where they rank with the VU songs. just a Reed poll would be one thing, Reed/Cale/Nico etc. with no VU is just weird to me.

shipl.de.al (some dude), Monday, 11 June 2012 01:16 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm alive! It's been a crazy month so far (I'm moving next week, for the first time in seven years--and definitely having some remorse about the amount of vinyl I've accumulated...), so I haven't been as present on ILM--apologies for the unresponsiveness. I'm pumped to do this poll, though, and I will design the parameters today and get everything set up and ready for launch. I honestly have no clue as to how I'm going to narrow down my own choices, and I have a good feeling this will be a lively, high-participation poll. (Speaking of which, shall I wait for the green light to post the poll itself?)

Clarke B., Monday, 11 June 2012 14:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

If you're planning on whetting the appetite with one of those best-album-type polls, can I suggest running a 'favourite member' mini-poll?

Ismael Klata, Monday, 11 June 2012 15:10 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm looking forward to it! I don't know if the Bee Gees even has a sustainable amount of ballots yet to make a rollout happen.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 11 June 2012 15:10 (2 years ago) Permalink

if you've extended the deadline and want people to keep voting you should bump the thread and update the title so that people know, I just assumed I missed the window but may try to put together a ballot this week if there's still time
