“Swimming pools” was my jam at the time. Don’t know of these. “Mercy” is awesome

brimstead, Thursday, 27 May 2021 00:52 (three weeks ago) link

don’t know most of these (knowingly), meant to type

brimstead, Thursday, 27 May 2021 00:52 (three weeks ago) link

Do you think about me still?

"Swimming Pools" over Fiona Apple.

Halfway there but for you, Thursday, 27 May 2021 01:36 (three weeks ago) link

Wow, great list. Miguel, Solange, Sky Ferreira, Usher, Twin Shadow, Jessie Ware, Beach House, Bat For Lashes and Chairlift are all still favourites. I would have added Rhye, but fuck that guy.

Had to go with Inspector Norse. We got it spot on with our poll winner that year.

kitchen person, Thursday, 27 May 2021 01:42 (three weeks ago) link

Oblivion, All Too Well, Stoned & Starving, and Beez are all fantastic songs. Gonna have to go with Oblivion, though – I was obsessed with that song/video.

like a d4mn sociopath! (morrisp), Thursday, 27 May 2021 01:55 (three weeks ago) link

Inspector Norse is still great all these years later

Dan S, Thursday, 27 May 2021 02:06 (three weeks ago) link

adorn

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 27 May 2021 02:39 (three weeks ago) link

Dan S. on my wavelength here.

I unabashedly love at least 5 of these songs.

enochroot, Thursday, 27 May 2021 02:41 (three weeks ago) link

Voted Frank over Oblivion, Inspector Norse, Parquet Courts, and Feels Like We Only Go Backwards, because that falsetto is unbeatable.

enochroot, Thursday, 27 May 2021 02:44 (three weeks ago) link

sing about me jumps out at first glance

the mai tai quinn (voodoo chili), Thursday, 27 May 2021 02:46 (three weeks ago) link

The Mother We Share

edited for dog profanity (cryptosicko), Thursday, 27 May 2021 03:20 (three weeks ago) link

this is impossible

josh az (2011nostalgia), Thursday, 27 May 2021 03:48 (three weeks ago) link

part of me wants to vote for "sing about me, i'm dying of thirst" but really it's "everything is embarrassing"

dyl, Thursday, 27 May 2021 03:54 (three weeks ago) link

but yeah an abundance of great ones to pick from

dyl, Thursday, 27 May 2021 03:55 (three weeks ago) link

"I Love It" hits as hard now as it did the first day I heard it, eternal classic

"Stoned and Starving" good enough to win some years but gets steamrolled here

Guayaquil (eephus!), Thursday, 27 May 2021 03:57 (three weeks ago) link

between these 4 for me:

11 1105 Beach House - Myth
12 1201 Taylor Swift - All Too Well
13 1223 Todd Terje - Inspector Norse
40 3273 Jessie Ware - Running

winters (josh), Thursday, 27 May 2021 06:49 (three weeks ago) link

some songs i loooved from this year that didn't make the cut

kevin gates - satellites
jeremih - 773 love
cloud nothings - stay useless
kurt vile - runner-ups
meek mill - dreams & nightmares
king louie - my hoes they do drugs

gonna vote for "wildest moments," i think, makes me blubber more reliably than even "sing about me"

the mai tai quinn (voodoo chili), Thursday, 27 May 2021 15:49 (three weeks ago) link

3 225 M.I.A. - Bad Girls
4 283 Frank Ocean - Thinkin Bout You
5 592 Sky Ferreira - Everything Is Embarrassing
10 929 Disclosure feat. Sam Smith - Latch
14 1333 Miguel - Adorn
15 1354 Bat for Lashes - Laura
17 1569 Icona Pop feat. Charli XCX - I Love It
18 1639 Kendrick Lamar - Swimming Pools (Drank)

42 3471 Blawan - Why They Hide Their Bodies Under My Garage?
43 3624 Death Grips - I've Seen Footage
46 3644 Nicki Minaj feat. 2 Chainz - Beez in the Trap

All of these are good to great, voted "Swimming Pools" but was sad not to be able to vote "Fineshrine", "Husbands", and "Why They Hide Their Bodies Under My Garage?" as well

80's hair metal , and good praise music ! (DJP), Thursday, 27 May 2021 17:48 (three weeks ago) link

Get Free
No I'm joking, I voted for Adorn.
Over Frank Ocean, Lamar, Rhye, Ware and maybe Blawan.

Nabozo, Thursday, 27 May 2021 19:59 (three weeks ago) link

but will anybody vote for Breezeblocks

josh az (2011nostalgia), Friday, 28 May 2021 06:15 (three weeks ago) link

the future is now, Friday, 28 May 2021 16:23 (three weeks ago) link

An embarrassment of riches, in the end I had to go with "Elephant."

the future is now, Friday, 28 May 2021 16:24 (three weeks ago) link

Want to give "Emmylou" some love as I doubt it will even get a vote but there are just too many good songs on here. I like that there is a Spotify link, going to try and listen to a few of my favorites again before making up my mind.

Blue Room, Sunday, 30 May 2021 00:38 (three weeks ago) link

Held my breath and went with Everything is Embarrassing

josh az (2011nostalgia), Sunday, 30 May 2021 20:48 (three weeks ago) link

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

System, Tuesday, 1 June 2021 00:01 (three weeks ago) link

i was not able to listen to this full playlist, went again for an earworm of this year "I Love It."

Bee OK, Tuesday, 1 June 2021 18:24 (three weeks ago) link

Incredible line-up which would make a sick playlist I feel. Could vote for any of about 10 of these.

Voted Death Grips in the end, which is a lot of fun for a song that's so vicious.

The Color and The Shape (Taylor's Version) (Adept), Tuesday, 1 June 2021 18:44 (three weeks ago) link

Automatic thread bump. This poll's results are now in.

System, Wednesday, 2 June 2021 00:01 (three weeks ago) link

The correct song won

octobeard, Wednesday, 2 June 2021 00:33 (three weeks ago) link

surprised that "Pyramids," "Latch," Rhye and even Taylor Swift all got shut out. shows how great this year actually was.

Bee OK, Wednesday, 2 June 2021 07:09 (three weeks ago) link

Solid top three. Such a great year.

kitchen person, Wednesday, 2 June 2021 18:29 (three weeks ago) link

Kendrick Lamar - "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe" would have gotten my vote. nowadays, I consume so much music and paradoxically (pre-pandemic) had so little time to listen to it, that it made little sense for me to say "such and such was the album that best represented <year>" anymore, but Good Kid, m.a.a.d. City was a rare exception, as I spun the fuck out of that for over a year.

will never forget the mindblowing live performance he put on at the University of Central Florida. best hip hop show I'd ever seen before or since

Feta Van Cheese (Neanderthal), Wednesday, 2 June 2021 19:18 (three weeks ago) link

REALLY loved Frank Ocean's "Pyramids" that year too. it was a hip-hop/R&B heavy year for me

Feta Van Cheese (Neanderthal), Wednesday, 2 June 2021 19:19 (three weeks ago) link

who the hell is todd terje

brimstead, Wednesday, 2 June 2021 19:34 (three weeks ago) link

the best Todd Terje tune

brimstead, Wednesday, 2 June 2021 19:34 (three weeks ago) link

might be an edit idk

brimstead, Wednesday, 2 June 2021 19:35 (three weeks ago) link

that's pleasant enough. the winner isn't exactly bad either. but its running away with this is mystifying to me. as is the general acclaim for all this nu disco stuff. i'd rather listen to funkytown or something. or about 10 of the other tracks on here

Left, Wednesday, 2 June 2021 19:41 (three weeks ago) link

i'd rather listen to funkytown or something

new board description

the mai tai quinn (voodoo chili), Wednesday, 2 June 2021 20:09 (three weeks ago) link

There is a whole bunch of songs with zero votes that are straight excellent. 2012 was a special year.

Van Horn Street, Wednesday, 2 June 2021 21:29 (three weeks ago) link

"Adorn" is jam of the decade. Better list than the others posted so far.

"I Love It" is objectively terrible.

billstevejim, Sunday, 6 June 2021 02:37 (two weeks ago) link

Inspector Norse was a zeitgeist hit on dance floors everywhere - at least the ones I frequented. I heard it in the wild out in the park just last weekend

octobeard, Tuesday, 8 June 2021 06:40 (two weeks ago) link

thought perhaps we had moved on past the stage where we we would get drive-by "that song you love objectively sucks!" in threads, apparently not.
