Cut out re-entering Xmas songs because it seemed like the best thing to do.

Chronological order! but also yes.

No idea if it's got a good beat, but can't not vote for that.

"WAP" over "Blinding Lights" and "Physical"

I listened to Boris Johnson Is A Fucking Cunt. All of it. Would vote for it again.

Respectfully Yours, (Aimless), Sunday, 27 December 2020 00:18 (four months ago) link

Has anyone heard more than say 5 or 6 of these?

not considering the US hits here, there's another poll for that.

there's quite a few UK rap/grime tracks here, not of all which I had heard before:
Aitch/AJ Tracey/Tay Keith - Rain
S1mba ft DTG - Rover
AJ Tracey ft Mostack - Dinner Guest
Headie One & Drake - Only You Freestyle
AJ Tracey & Mabel - West Ten
Headie One/AJ Tracey/Stormzy - Ain't It Different
Wes Nelson & Hardy Caprio - See Nobody

most of these are good, I probably like "Ain't It Different" best, but new-to-me "See Nobody" was a very pleasant surprise.

not so crazy about the nu-garage stuff:
Nathan Dawe ft KSI - Lighter
KSI/Craig David/Digital Farm - Really Love

I might still go with "Physical" tho (it qualifies: UK artist and US non-hit), one of my most-played songs of the year.

Has anyone heard more than say 5 or 6 of these?

sure, about 30 (before today). why would you even poll these if you've heard only 3 or 4?

sorry, sounds kind of sarcastic, was just a request for input. I generally engage with this stuff but haven't this year at all, not because it's bad, just haven't had time to fit it in.

I’ve heard between 5 and 10 but most of those only once each

huge rant (sic), Monday, 28 December 2020 11:31 (four months ago) link

Eminem ft JuiceWrld

never heard this but I assume it's the worst thing ever

Left, Monday, 28 December 2020 13:02 (four months ago) link

cunt song is underwhelming, this style doesn't sound aggro enough these days to really drive the sentiment home. I can imagine Boris-for-London-mayor voters having a chuckle over it

Left, Monday, 28 December 2020 13:38 (four months ago) link

Don't think it's supposed to be effective satire - just a nihilistic "fuck you" - which is probably a better approach.

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

oh dear, just heard the Ladbaby, as it’s the UK’s Xmas number 1. a covid-themed cover of “Don’t Stop Believing”, great stuff 🤮

Automatic thread bump. This poll's results are now in.

System, Friday, 1 January 2021 00:01 (four months ago) link

Now that's what I call a result

٩(͡๏̯͡๏)۶ (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Friday, 1 January 2021 00:06 (four months ago) link

I didn't vote for it, but can't argue with that.
