~~~~~~~~~~

after collecting a handful of nominations, at long last, it’s time to vote!

the final list of nominees.

Each ballot can have up to 50 songs. The final rollout will include 119 songs, if all goes well. There are 4 ballot options (Ranked, Unranked, Mixed, and the Clemenza Option). There are also 3 sub-polls: Top 5 songs under 30 seconds, Favorite <2 minutes artist, and Top 5 songs that aren’t on the nominations list. More details below. Please use this thread to campaign for your faves, including the ones that aren’t on the massive spotify playlist for the nominations.

How to submit your ballot:

1) submit your ballot via this Google Form: https://goo.gl/forms/GaYQfyOscmQ0nPSB2

2) you’ll be asked to submit your ballot using one of four options: Ranked, Unranked, Mixed, and the Clemenza Option (details about these options below, and also on the Google form in Step 1 above)

3) **PLEASE** form your baby ballot by copying and pasting from this full list of nominations: https://pastebin.com/PuG4RdvE

do not type the rank/number for each song. just copy and paste the entire line for the song you want (including the length), like this:

Jimmy Toledo - Holy Smokes! (1:52)
Jenny Creekbed - Unholy Water (0:32)
Jerry Bassface and the Tenortones - Choogaloo River (1:32)

if you’re doing a ranked ballot, put your fave song on top, you’re least fave on the bottom.

If you don’t want to do 50 songs, that’s ok! just submit as many as you want to, up to a limit of 50.

4) there are also three optional sub-polls: Top 5 songs under 30 seconds, Favorite <2 minutes artist, and Top 5 songs that aren’t on the nominations list because of a technical formality or because i fucked up or because it wasn’t nominated because this world is going to HELL, etc

5) Do all this by midnight, March 31st!

~~~~~~~~~~
other things
~~~~~~~~~~

RANKED BALLOT: what it sounds like. your top 50, ranked from top to bottom. top song will get 500 points, bottom will get 83. All 50 will add up to 10,000 points. refer to this post for the points for each rank.

UNRANKED BALLOT. your fave 50 songs. each will get 200 points. if you submit fewer than 50 songs, they’ll still each get 200 points.

MIXED BALLOT: the top 20 songs will be ranked (500 points for the #1, scaling down to 197 points for #20). songs #21-30 will get 162 points each, #31-40 will get 129 points each, and #41-50 will get 98 points each.

THE CLEMENZA OPTION: songs #1-10 receive 300 points. #11-25: 217 points each. #26-49: 150 points each. #50: 145 points.

Each 50-song ballot will add up to 10,000 points. but when i do the final rollout (which should be 119 songs), i will apply a complex mathematical procedure known as “multiplying by a tiny number” that will create a pleasingly tiny number point totals.

the question of which songs are shorter than 2 minutes is a complicated one. depending on the format you listen to, or the online resource you trust (CD, LP, streaming, all music, discogs, etc), you can and will get very different answers to how long a particular song is. after a while, i just decided to go with spotify (US version) as the arbitrator of song lengths. i realize that this is a flawed system - many songs are just a bit over 2:00 on Spotify but if you listen, they actually fade out several seconds beforehand - but i did not want to do several dozen battles regarding song lengths for particular songs. for songs that weren’t on Spotify, Discogs was used as the secondary arbitrator. even then, there were weird issues, mistakes on my end, and i probably accidentally pissed off a bunch of people. if there is a sub-2 minute song that you adore and it’s not on the list, please vote for in the appropriate sub-poll. i am sorry. i really did my best. please try to have fun and not get overly concerned about an online poll.

~~~~~~~~~~

vote early, but don’t vote often! just once will do.

i think that’s it! if there are questions please let me know, but please note that it is now officially too late to change the nominations list. please use this thread to hype your faves.

First of all, thank you for this amazing effort so far KM!

Now let's hear it for our musical heroes. I'm especially keen to promote the interests of a couple of things not on Spotify...

The Sea Nymphs - On The Dry Land is just about the most beautiful little vignette I can think of, and neatly summarises the entire Cardiacs aesthetic in 1:46 of yearning paradise

Of course, you might also delight in some choice Dadaism courtesy of the good folks at Blanche Blanche Blanche

And if I must promote something a) on Spotify and b) not nominated by me, then truly it is amusing yet emotional if one imagines what ducks go through

Please consider voting for this pleasing song by Bobby Please and the Pleasers (despite its monstrous title, "The Monster").

Above and beyond, KM.

Some lesser-known stuff that will be high on my ballot:

folk-hippie weirdness
sprightly sort-of punk
jangly mods
jangly brooklyn

Tried, without success, to get Odin's "Lost" and Chris Twinning's "Netherlands" uploaded onto YouTube. They will remain unheard.

not to be too parochial about this but it's usually the done thing on campaigning threads to put youtube links into url tags rather than just pasting them straight

second that "jangly mods" link by clemenza ("For Another Man" by the Motions). that was one of the early new-to-me finds of this process. it's basically a beatles help or rubber soul era song

As they aren't on Spotify I'll have to campaign for The Yummy Fur, one of my 3 favourite bands of all time and for some reason their entire catalogue is currently unavailable to buy or stream, except on youtube.

Here is my first choice, a b-side from 96 called The Career Saver

https://youtu.be/tElQEnCefOo

I was going to list a few more, but they aren't even on youtube, so will upload tonight and make a playlist.

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Sunday, 10 March 2019 16:49 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Three of my noms aren't on Spotify, so I figure I'll campaign for those here via YouTube:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYeDY6YkzIg

X, "Suck Suck" (1.55)

(note that this is the *other* late 70s punk band named X; this lot are from Australia)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ahdjCoL5Yw

Pulsars, "Owed to a Devil" (1.59)

(the YouTube version is 2:05; I'm going off what I have copied off of my CD copy, which I take to be the "official" time)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ol86MTKGqUA

Kenickie, "Private Bukowski" (1.42)

This is about as primitive as it gets--I was able to upload two songs not anywhere else on the internet onto my Tripod homepage.

Lost (Odin, 1968)
Netherlands (Chris Twinning, 1990)

I have to campaign for Lizzy Mercier Descloux's inspired no wave turn as Rosa Yemen. The whole EP is the best 9-minute career imaginable.

Also, I fear Rudimentary Peni will be left lurking in the shadows of all the other punk in this poll, but for anyone even remotely interested in scorching manic punk, I urge you to check out any of their three nominated songs.

I just checked and it was nominated three separate times, possibly while cutting the duplicates you cut all of the noms, but that means there are at least four of us who were definitely gonna vote for it.

emil.y, Sunday, 10 March 2019 19:11 (two weeks ago) Permalink

THEN FUCKING VOTE FOR IT

but i'm there are fuckups (Karl Malone), Sunday, 10 March 2019 19:11 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Cool, I will. Just making sure it wasn't thrown out on a technicality.

Dan Worsley, Sunday, 10 March 2019 19:17 (two weeks ago) Permalink

why i'm frustrated:

1) i have put in an enormous amount of my free time, in a very stressful time of my life (new job that fucking BLOWS), doing this. i know that others offered to help and that all of the responsibility for spending a bunch of time of it is on me.
2) i posted the nominations list several times in the old thread. other people helped me comb through it. i knew there would be omissions and mistakes anyway, and lord help me i knew there would be complaints. i thought that posting the nominations list ahead of time, several times, would help
3) i didn't want to change the nominations list / fix mistakes after starting this thread, because
3a) someone will then complain that they didn't know a song was added and it wasn't fair
3b) it will keep happening. 6 hours later, someone will realize that the greatest song of all time, which they clearly nominated, wasn't added. i will submit the pastebin file, then ask a mod to change all the references to the pastebin file in the opening post of this thread, then edit the google form to replace all the references to the pastebin file. then the next day someone will realize that another one of the greatest songs of all time that was clearly nominated isn't on there, and i will do it again. someone will offer to do it for me but i'd have to give them my google password, so nope.
3c) after doing all of that, someone will complain about some other shit
4) i pre-emptively apologized for all of this in my opening post and tried to come up with a backup plan to appease people: "there were weird issues, mistakes on my end, and i probably accidentally pissed off a bunch of people. if there is a sub-2 minute song that you adore and it’s not on the list, please vote for in the appropriate sub-poll. i am sorry. i really did my best. please try to have fun and not get overly concerned about an online poll."
5) i recognize the irony in me constantly asking everyone not to freak out about an online poll of short songs, while myself freaking out about an online poll of short songs. i am like the shaking with rage guy yelling "chill the fuck out!" at a room of frightened people. sorry

but i'm there are fuckups (Karl Malone), Sunday, 10 March 2019 19:33 (two weeks ago) Permalink

6) but if i DON'T add 'diamond day' to the official list of nominations, i can look forward to multiple people complaining about the low placement of the song in the results, because of course not everyone is going to wade through this thread and notice that it was added later. same goes for all of my other mistakes

but i'm there are fuckups (Karl Malone), Sunday, 10 March 2019 19:35 (two weeks ago) Permalink

conclusion: there a reason nobody likes to do this shit

sorry dan, sorry emil.y. you did nothing wrong, and if it wasn't you, it was inevitably going to be someone else catching a mistake. i hate my new job.

Hey Karl, don't beat yourself up about it. With 2000+ nominations it's inevitable that things will go awol in the copying and pasting. FWIW I think you're doing a great job and am really looking forward to the results in a few weeks time.

Dan Worsley, Sunday, 10 March 2019 19:47 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Yes, thank you Karl, great work and please don't sweating. Was just shoveling for the umpeenth time in the last month and this playlist makes great listening. Going to be very hard to narrow to 50 songs.

Since she had success in the year poll, please note this intense short song
Rosalía - Que se muere que se muere

When starting the nominations, I thought this was a favorite to top the vote. Turned out I had to nominate it myself.
Jay Dee - Stop

You might now know this haunting ominous French song (if you like Christine Ribeiro for example). She talks of a kid asking difficult family questions which she shrugs off.
Colette Magny - Melocoton

If you like short melancholic folk that is more recent than dear Vashti, check Diane Cluck

Bad Boys Brains - F.V.K.
F.S.O.L. T.S.O.L. - Abolish Government/Silent Majority
Sean Price - One More Try
Heavy Vegetable - Heavy Vegetable Fired
Robert Fripp - Mary 2:06 too long <Not sure if Karl wants to remove this one

And good news.
Here's a playlist of the tracks left off spotify.
I was kind of picky with the first 95 songs and how I sequenced them. The next 300 or so songs will be more or less dumped in the playlist over the next 2 or 3 days.

Having run three or four of these, always the worst part--you don't want to appear needy as you wait for ballots to arrive.

what you don't understand is that i made a bad bet, and now i owe someone big. i really DO need all these ballots to arrive, or else.

Still (foolishly?) attempting to make it through the Spotify playlist. I feel like I'm losing momentum with this project, though, so I may just finalize a ballot with what I have in the next day or two.

I skipped maybe a quarter of the playlist (p much all the fast punky stuff ha) but down to the last 200 or so.

Only voted for stuff I already knew and liked, which was still a good 100-120 tracks. Going to use the playlist as a future resource,

Nice little poll you got here, shame if something were to... HAPPEN.. to it.

Last weekend I was doing something even nerdier than voting in an online music poll, so I'm aiming to finish my ballot by this weekend.

KM: If I wanted to correct something on the ballot I've submitted, how would I do that? If its not do-able, no problem...

someone else emailed me about that this morning! i just changed a setting on the Google Form so that submitters can Edit their ballots after voting (previously this setting was turned off, by default). can you try to access your ballot really quick and see if it lets you make a change?

Karl Malone, Monday, 25 March 2019 19:56 (one hour ago) Permalink

Voted!

And was able to edit and re-submit (although didn't change anything second time around).

I don't see where I can edit. I enter my username, select my ranking preference, and it just takes me to a blank form for the rankings.

i was the one who emailed you! i also dunno how to access my old ballot to edit it... maybe i am missing something?
