Poll Closing Date: Saturday, 1 July 2017 00:00 (in 6 days)
I'm currently compiling my 250 favorite songs of every decade since the 50's. I'm clicking shuffle and choosing the first 50 songs that appear for this poll.
Note: This is poll 3 out of 7. It's been kind of quiet lately so might as well do two of these.
Only one song per artist but covers/collabs/ghostwriting/sideprojects get a free pass.
I do not recommend listening to these as a playlist but here's the spotify link either way for the adventurous:

Voted random and got Eydie Gorme & Los Panchos. It's perhaps the most perennial Bolero Trio song in a huge collection of classics by Los Panchos.

"Transfusion" from the abridged list; "Transfusion" or "At the Hop" or "I Only Have Eyes for You" from the big one.

I Only Have Eyes for You won the best song of the 50's on the ILM poll. Glad it didn't appear in random as it might have been the clear winner.

Thanks for the Spotify links in these polls Moka, enjoying them

Some recommendations, but if you've already mined the ILM poll, you may have already dismissed these:
João Gilberto - DesafinadoJoão Gilberto - Chega de SaudadeLucho Gatica - Historia de un AmorConnie Francis – Who’s Sorry Now?Stelios Kazantzidis – ZigkoualaMukesh – Awara HoonSanto & Johnny – SleepwalkJohnny Mathis – MistyFarid Al-Atrash - Ana Willy BaheboTito Rodriguez - Tremendo CumbanCelia Cruz - Mi Sonsito

NickB: Yeah I'm still missing some huge jazz figures in here. Still a work in progress so many songs I need to listen to. Elmore James I need to listen to!
Le Bateau: glad you enjoy them. I love discovering music through other people's lists! Everyone on ILM should make one of these decade lists haha.
Rudi: "Historia de un Amor" is there. The other recommendations are dope and I'm seriously missing Joao Gilberto, Tito and Celia. There's many latin music I need to consider for inclusion.
Oddly enough I've never liked Santo & Johnny's Sleepwalking. It's a great piece of music but I've never felt particularly excited by it.

From the long list, it would be "Spoonful", then probably "Monk's Mood". From the short list, I'll take "Diddy Wah Diddy". Notable absences: Fats Domino, Ricky Nelson.

The more I hear it the more I think Jay Hawkins was actually insane.
