this weeks poll was supposed to be postponed because i was supposed to be in Vegas. plan fell through because of health issues with mom, so instead it only got delayed a few hours.

Bee OK, Thursday, 3 June 2021 03:34 (two weeks ago) link

feel like this one is as bad as 2012 was good

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 3 June 2021 03:39 (two weeks ago) link

sorry I cannot vote here it does not have "Two Trucks Having Sex" on it

frogbs, Thursday, 3 June 2021 03:43 (two weeks ago) link

this one is indeed noticeably worse than the 2012 one

dyl, Thursday, 3 June 2021 04:04 (two weeks ago) link

Voted Sky Ferreira. It's not my favorite track, but I still jam that album on the regular.

Johnny Fever, Thursday, 3 June 2021 04:07 (two weeks ago) link

Easy (and quick) vote for me.

like a d4mn sociopath! (morrisp), Thursday, 3 June 2021 04:10 (two weeks ago) link

Big drop in quality from the previous year. Will probably go for I Blame Myself or Falling. There's some other good songs here, but those are the only two I'm really excited about.

kitchen person, Thursday, 3 June 2021 04:22 (two weeks ago) link

2013 was a better year than this list suggests. If they'd been here, I would have considered voting for:

Charli XCX - Superlove
Other songs from Beyonce (Rocket, XO)
Annie - Back Together
Jessie Ware - Imagine It Was Us Quadron - Hey Love
Tegan & Sara - Closer
Paramore - Still Into You/Ain't It Fun
Anything from Goldfrapp's Tales Of Us
Janelle Monae & Erykah Badu - Q.U.E.E.N
Vanessa Paradis - Love Song
Young Galaxy - Pretty Boy
Pet Shop Boys - Vocal
Classixx - All You're Waiting For Feat. Nancy Whang

kitchen person, Thursday, 3 June 2021 04:42 (two weeks ago) link

"Year of the Glad" must be up there, no need to check right?

swing out sister: live in new donk city (geoffreyess), Thursday, 3 June 2021 04:56 (two weeks ago) link

it's between "Full of Fire" and "Water Me" for me

winters (josh), Thursday, 3 June 2021 05:08 (two weeks ago) link

I’m gonna have to vote for Sky Ferreira again aren’t I

josh az (2011nostalgia), Thursday, 3 June 2021 05:47 (two weeks ago) link

Avant Gardener

i carry the torch for disco inauthenticity (Eric H.), Thursday, 3 June 2021 14:40 (two weeks ago) link

I hope I didn't fumble it when it came down to the wire.

enochroot, Thursday, 3 June 2021 14:44 (two weeks ago) link

this list seems to be missing the scientifically-proven best song of the year.

i'm speaking, of course, of "bugatti" by ace hood featuring future and rick ross

the mai tai quinn (voodoo chili), Thursday, 3 June 2021 15:48 (two weeks ago) link

also missing the second-best song of the year, "versace" by migos

the mai tai quinn (voodoo chili), Thursday, 3 June 2021 15:49 (two weeks ago) link

i guess critics didn't come around to the greatness of atlanta-based trap music until after it started to get stale. 'twas ever thus.

the mai tai quinn (voodoo chili), Thursday, 3 June 2021 15:50 (two weeks ago) link

80's hair metal , and good praise music ! (DJP), Friday, 4 June 2021 18:34 (two weeks ago) link

lol I remember somebody on ilm calling that drake song “hold on (I’m fucking terrible)” at the time and it made me lol

brimstead, Friday, 4 June 2021 18:42 (two weeks ago) link

I love Song for Zula.

Vanishing Point (Chinaski), Friday, 4 June 2021 23:23 (two weeks ago) link

I'm very surprised that "Royals" beat "Get Lucky" for the number one spot this year. Tho it only barely beat it.

Bee OK, Saturday, 5 June 2021 22:54 (two weeks ago) link

Full of Fire is still my favorite track from that year, and the video is memorable

Dan S, Saturday, 5 June 2021 23:33 (two weeks ago) link

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

System, Monday, 7 June 2021 00:01 (two weeks ago) link

ended up voting for "Get Lucky."

Bee OK, Monday, 7 June 2021 16:44 (two weeks ago) link

as long as the winner isn't lorde, VW, AF, drake, JT, TWOD, thicke, vile, or cave I'll be satisfied

I'd even take more todd terje over those (here's another solid track I've never heard before & won't come rushing back to)

Left, Monday, 7 June 2021 17:09 (two weeks ago) link

get lucky is such an aggressively ok song it's hard for me to imagine really loving or hating it. why was it such a thing again?

Left, Monday, 7 June 2021 17:10 (two weeks ago) link

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

System, Tuesday, 8 June 2021 00:01 (two weeks ago) link

correct winner, when i relistened i sort of felt like it was the best song from this year but also know that i will probably vote for the album when that comes up.

Bee OK, Tuesday, 8 June 2021 02:55 (two weeks ago) link

a very ilm track to win this poll (but also a good track)

josh az (2011nostalgia), Tuesday, 8 June 2021 05:40 (two weeks ago) link

I ended up voting for it
