all sounds like a dream to me

midnight city has really not aged well at all, there's kind of a good idea there but it's super underwritten

ufo, Thursday, 20 May 2021 01:02 (one month ago) link

for a while i thought i liked Lykke Li, but i think i just liked "i follow rivers"

parenthetically yours, (Karl Malone), Thursday, 20 May 2021 01:05 (one month ago) link

kinda wanna go with either "We Found Love" or "The Edge of Glory"

winters (josh), Thursday, 20 May 2021 01:13 (one month ago) link

finally my username comes in handy

i'm stuck between kaputt, super bass, countdown, love on top, believer, *expletive* in paris, marvin's room, btstu... lots of great songs here!

is it just me or has call me maybe not aged that well? like it's obviously great, but her career has flourished so much since then and now the song just doesn't feel as exciting as it once did

josh az (2011nostalgia), Thursday, 20 May 2021 01:34 (one month ago) link

Hard to underestimate just how huge "212" was at the time.

Er, easy to underestimate, rather.

Fuck it, what I mean is, "212" was fucking huge at the time and deservedly so.

Karl Malone, Thursday, 20 May 2021 05:00 (one month ago) link

“Super Bass” for me, easy. (This is not my favorite era generally.)

i actually would have thought this would have been your favorite era morrisp, i have read you wrong. mine is obvious on ILM with the 80s but now i want to know what is your favorite decade for music?

Bee OK, Thursday, 20 May 2021 05:15 (one month ago) link

Hmm, thanks for asking, Bee… I guess the ‘90s and “today”!

wasn't expecting your number one, but i probably agree with it

the mai tai quinn (voodoo chili), Thursday, 20 May 2021 16:25 (one month ago) link

it was the first week of spring in Beijing, my son had just been born and as I shuttled between my house and the hospital the sun was out and Still Sound was on my headphones, it just seemed like an expression of all the joy of that moment.

A viking of frowns, (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Thursday, 20 May 2021 16:28 (one month ago) link

I salute your joy, but The Copper Top is a thing of extraordinary beauty.

Vanishing Point (Chinaski), Thursday, 20 May 2021 16:32 (one month ago) link

so much better than 2010

Urbandn hope all ye who enter here (dog latin), Thursday, 20 May 2021 16:35 (one month ago) link

Call Me Maybe, I Follow Rivers, Video Games and Kaputt could all get my vote. Tough call. I could even go for Vomit by Girls. I never got the hype about that album but that song was one of my favourite guitar tracks of the decade.

kitchen person, Thursday, 20 May 2021 20:02 (one month ago) link

Lots of great stuff on this list, in the end went for "Midnight City."

the future is now, Friday, 21 May 2021 16:29 (one month ago) link

Going to close my eyes and randomy pick between Super Bass and Countdown

justfanoe (Greg Fanoe), Friday, 21 May 2021 17:42 (one month ago) link

I like these to varying degrees: Kaputt, Bizness, Video Games, 212, Hold On, California, It's Real.

o. nate, Friday, 21 May 2021 18:08 (one month ago) link

lol. i was a bit drunk the other night so sorry for my grammar everyone. it sounded all right in my head.

Bee OK, Friday, 21 May 2021 22:00 (one month ago) link

i have had a chance to listen to the first 15 songs and one of my surprises have been how much i loved "Hold On." i can't recall having any feelings for it at the time of release.

Bee OK, Friday, 21 May 2021 22:02 (one month ago) link

if kaputt beats carly i will be livid

Left, Friday, 21 May 2021 22:11 (one month ago) link

lmao this strokes song is so fuckin shit i can't even w the little rockabilly/emo/ska touches. where's the fucking trumpet solo

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

System, Monday, 24 May 2021 00:01 (four weeks ago) link

in the end i went with my first pick or my earwarm from this year "Somebody That I Used to Know." it was the modern day "Don't Your Want Me?"

Bee OK, Monday, 24 May 2021 17:15 (four weeks ago) link

Very good year. Picked 212.

I can’t believe it has been a whole decade since I was first baffled by the appeal of “Video Games.”

why does this indie yacht rock bollocks always win everything

RIP poptimism

Left, Tuesday, 25 May 2021 02:12 (four weeks ago) link

Isn't the reclamation of "yacht rock" a triumph of poptimism, though? Rock critics hated that stuff at the time.

Halfway there but for you, Tuesday, 25 May 2021 03:08 (four weeks ago) link

idk maybe i hate poptimism then

just listened to the song all the way through for the first time and it's a real downer, made me feel gross and seasick. what's wrong with sade

call me maybe however is a total upper and necessary palate cleanser, somehow it still works every time. should have run away with this

may have voted for cmm if id noticed it bc it was a 2012 year of impact so i forgot it would be here

but the gap between crjs discog and kaputt is not really that big

ufo, Tuesday, 25 May 2021 04:54 (four weeks ago) link

This is missing a lot but "We Found Love" stands out.

billstevejim, Sunday, 6 June 2021 02:33 (two weeks ago) link

missed this one but would have voted kaputt
