at long last, the spiritual partner of Leee's Hey I'm King of The World, You Oughta Hear My Song, Come On & Measure Me, THESE ARE AT LEAST 10 MINUTES LONG - RESULTS ILM BALLOT POLL #58 is here! almost. first we have to nominate songs. LET'S DO SOME Q&A

Q: how long can these songs be?
A: any length at all, as long as it's under 2 minutes. 2 minutes on the dot doesn't count.

Q: why doesn't 2 minutes on the dot count?
A: mookieproof said so, and it sounded right to me

Q: i want 2 minute songs to count!!
A: i guess if there are enough really good songs that are exactly 2 minutes, we could do a side poll?

Q: where did you get this ultimate power from? it's really impressive, this poll running ultimate power, wow!
A: it was Leee's idea, but he's busy and didn't want the ultimate power. but now i wield it flawlessly to make everyone suffer through endless Q&A, ahahahaahahaha next Q!

Q: why isn't it under 1:30 instead? why isn't it under 2:30 instead? why isn't it under 1:00 instead? actually shouldn't it be under 1:45 instead?
A: mookieproof was really pushy about all of this, he demanded under 2

Q: there's a song that is 1:58 on one streaming platform, and 2:01 on another. does it count?
A: uuuuuuuuugh. that's going to happen, isn't it? mookieproof? mookieproooooof!!?? my gut tells me to just go with common sense on a case-by-case basis and count songs where the majority of the main music platforms/players (spotify, iTunes, apple music, the track length that appears on your CD player, etc) agree that it's under 2 minutes. or we could go with some formal average of 3 to 4 platforms. or maybe someone else has an idea? my main rule is just don't be a total dick about things, please. in other words, if the song is clearly just a bit over 2 minutes but you can find some obscure web player that gives everyone viruses but displays the track length as 1:57, just fuck off and don't do that shit just to get some dumb song into a poll nominations list. that said, i expect there will be some legit examples of songs that are right at the 1:59/2:00 mark and we'll have to figure out what to do. if anyone has a suggestion i'm all ears (mooookieprooooof!??!!)

Q: how long will this nominations thread last?
A: um, how about March 1, does that sound ok? if it peters out before then, i'm happy to just jump straight to the voting thread, and if lots of great nominations are still rolling in, we'll keep it open for a bit longer. but for now let's shoot for March 1.

Q: are there other threads we should reference to come up with nominations?
A: songs that are less than 2 minutes
there's also some good ones on Top 100 Under 3-minute Songs

Q: what do you feel are the greatest strengths of this poll?
A: the > 10 minutes poll, while amazing, also resulted in a top 100 playlist that was, at the very minimum, over 16 hours long. the <2 minutes top 100 playlist would be digestable in a little over 3 hours, and most likely must shorter than that. the top 20 songs songs under 2 minutes of ALL time will be less than 40 minutes, total. that means you could listen to the playlist over 36 times every day until you die. wow!

since i'm making an entirely different option just for you, what would be perfect?

but i'm there are fuckups (Karl Malone), Sunday, 10 March 2019 04:45 (two months ago) Permalink

The one above is perfect because it's so easy. But you could, if you want, set it up so "The Clemenza Option" is in flashing neon colours.

(Seriously, though--thanks.)

clemenza, Sunday, 10 March 2019 04:48 (two months ago) Permalink

no really, i'm going to add a separate option that you can use (and others will be welcome to use it too), so if you want the spread a little closer just let me know! there's no real "easier" or "harder" here, they all involve adding a new section on a google form

but i'm there are fuckups (Karl Malone), Sunday, 10 March 2019 04:48 (two months ago) Permalink

This is all terribly exciting. Thanks for your toil, KM.

I like how "Lightworks" appears here in three variations: the original, J-Dilla's appropriation and then MF DOOM rapping over the latter.

A couple of other things: entries for Mekons + The Mekons and Germs + The Germs (Perhaps not terribly important except that I panicked thinking "Lexicon Devil" and "Never Been in a Riot" had been eliminated.)

Nag! Nag! Nag!, Sunday, 10 March 2019 04:51 (two months ago) Permalink

My estimate would be that I like my #1, I don't know, maybe twice as much as my #50? So if I changed the top 10 to 300 points, that'd be 3,000, and the bottom 25 to 150, that'd be 3,750, leaving 3,250 for the middle 15, which works out to...a decimal. So just leave it like it is--the numbers are easy to work with.

nice, thanks! I should have done a better job checking the The's section - but I ended up moving straight on to the rest of the prep work. Thanks for the fixes.

btw, for those who are up late on a Saturday night (or up super early on a Sunday morning): how long should the voting period be? 3 weeks sound about right (ballots due by the end of Sunday, March 31st)?

I know it's a ton of songs so we need a decent amount of time, but I don't want to do one of those interminable polls that go on and on (even this nominations process took forever, i thought)

clemenza, for your option how about:

1-10: 300 points (3,000)
11-25: 217 points (3,255)
26-49: 150 points (3,600)
50: 145 points (145)

it's a ridiculous compromise: you know you want to agree to this

but i'm there are fuckups (Karl Malone), Sunday, 10 March 2019 05:00 (two months ago) Permalink

or if not, i'll just go with your option you mentioned above. but it's really not a big deal (on my end) to do the one i just posted, and then the spread would be a lot closer. others might like that too, and also they might appreciate your option because it's entirely made up of tiers

but i'm there are fuckups (Karl Malone), Sunday, 10 March 2019 05:01 (two months ago) Permalink

clemenza let me know what you decide by tomorrow morning, if you can! if i don't hear back i'll just go with the first option you proposed. other than that, i have everything ready to go for the voting poll, and i will post it sometime between 10-11 am Central time tomorrow morning

I'm going to continue working on a youtube playlist with the 407 songs not on Spotify. They are the last songs for me to check for mistakes and I might be done checking by tonight. I've pretty much been working on corrections/youtube song gathering a few hours each day since Friday

7 are The Yummy Fur songs I posted on the other thread, so can just add that list.

The version of Lungleg - Chop Chop on youtube is all kinds of wrong too, will upload the good version later today.

Actually I should really have nominated some more Lungleg, oh well

For your YouTube playlist: I added downloadable mp3 links to Odin and Chris Twinning on the other thread...I'll repost them here.

Odin - LostChris Twinning - Netherlands

Not sure if that helps.

They're melded together there, but they're separate links.

clemenza, Monday, 11 March 2019 15:49 (two months ago) Permalink

It helps, I was going to slsk and upload everything myself but that works too

Aaarrgh we didn't nominate my favorite Ramones track.

fuck there are a ton of great songs and I've just barely started the listening

Emperor Tonetta Ketchup (sleeve), Thursday, 14 March 2019 00:35 (two months ago) Permalink

The Ramones cover of Billie Holiday's "Lover, Come Back to Me" is an excellent song you should consider voting for ;)

My youtube playlist of all the remaining tracks will be out by Saturday.
The tracks I can't find so far:

2013 Electro Quirk: Dominique Leone - Those Productive Millennials (on bandcamp)
1966 Rockabilly Guitar: Jerry Porter - 3/4 Mostly Lovin'
2006 Rock Electronic: Lansing-Dreiden - Dazzle Magic
1992 Indie Lofi: Mosquito - Down
1995 LoFi Punk Rock: Phantom Pregnancies - Ants In Your Pants II (is it the same as Ants In Your Pants I?)
1937 Southern Folk: Pine Mountain Girls' Octet - Wondrous Love
2000 Classical Lute: Robin Blaze & Elizabeth Kenny/ Matthew Locke - The Delights of the Bottle
2015 Punk: Semi - Above the Law
2013 Indie Pop Bit Punk: The Tee-Tahs - Fun Forever

I've been using dates and personal descriptions to help me order the playlist because I'm a bit OCD

After lots of digging and converting I'm only missing 1 song:

Thanks for coming up with the supplementary playlist flopsy

but i'm there are fuckups (Karl Malone), Thursday, 14 March 2019 19:39 (two months ago) Permalink

I'll see if I can upload that Semi track to YouTube or something

Colonel Poo, Thursday, 14 March 2019 19:45 (two months ago) Permalink

I also have that Phantom Pregnancies song, probably, I have most of their stuff

Colonel Poo, Thursday, 14 March 2019 19:45 (two months ago) Permalink

I found them on bandcamp. I used a website to convert those to 128k - the best I can get without paying

Your welcome Karl. I don't know why I'm doing all of this other than putting off doing other stuff. Menial computer tasks are my bread and butter though.

I actually don't have Ants In Yr Pants II. I only have Ants In Yr Pants I.

The Semi song on bandcamp is a different version to the one I was nominating fwiw

Colonel Poo, Thursday, 14 March 2019 20:22 (two months ago) Permalink

Ants in Yr Pants II is from Astral Angora, my favourite multi-artist EP ever, I will upload it all to yt tonight.

I have no idea how to do this :( there used to be Windows Movie Maker that would do it but it's not available on Windows 10. Tried installing something calling itself Movie Maker but it doesn't let you add an audio file

Colonel Poo, Thursday, 14 March 2019 20:34 (two months ago) Permalink

n/m found something called TunesToTube that does it:

Semi - Above The Law

Young Marble Giants - Final Day - perfection

Sun City Girls - Cooking With Satan - just listen to this thing

Bikini Kill - New Radio - fury personified

Swell Maps - Read About Seymour - post punk falling down the stairs

did you get my ilxmail with the link to the mp3, flopsyduck? unfortunately i am not able to convert an mp3 to a youtube link or i do not want to use my google account for something like this.

Ich bin kein Berliner (alex in mainhattan), Saturday, 16 March 2019 18:38 (two months ago) Permalink

Yes. I've uploaded 50 songs to youtube so far and they are listed as private until I'm finished. I will be able to get a lot done on Monday.

^ For those of you who didn't see me post this to the VOTING and CAMPAIGNING thread.

It's a curated youtube playlist of the songs missing from Spotify. I quite like the selection and flow of the first 95 songs. The rest of the songs will be dumped over the next 2-3 days with less flow.
