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 4 out of 7.
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:

The Call the Cops tour literary changed my life. i'm sure the drugs that night had a lot to do with it.

Happy Mondays was a complicated band for me. Hated them with passion the first times I heard them when I was like 15 and 5 years later they clicked and I spent a whole summer listening to them. "Step On" is an obvious choice but it's the one that made me change my mind about them in the first place.

feels so weird to have dee-lite and DOOM in the same decade

I love Palace but they're missing from spotify. Had no idea the white stripes where around in the 90s

Either "Electric Relaxation" or LEN.

Probably not the best song on here, but I'm voting for "Cookie Bay" because when else will I have a chance to vote for this track in a poll?

This is spooky, I didn't know there was anybody but me who rated both "Plant White Roses" and "San Diego Zoo" that high on the list of Merritt's recorded output
Though if you really push me I probably swap Zoo for "Dream Hat"
Impossible for me to vote on this, at the very least
Plant White RosesGroove is in the HeartCannonballRadiation Vibe
are on my short all-time list and then there are others here ("Steal My Sunshine," "Seether,") which so perfectly capture what I liked about the feeling of being alive at that time.

That was kind of hard since I love all those songs, but I went with Elliott Smith. "Angeles" is heavenly.

Eels - PS You Rock My World
if it was the full poll though, would've chosen Trailer Trash by Modest Mouse

Ha! my 2nd favorite song from him in the 6ths is dream hat. I've seen many people choose 100,000 fireflies over Roses from that MF album but I need to have to be in a particular mood for that one wheres Roses always sounds great to me.
