50 - Flo Rida - Low
69.5 points, 7 votes
100 in P&J

Thoughts?

miss precious perfect (musically), Monday, 2 February 2009 17:54 (ten years ago) link

btw I am very happy that the 50th place track got 7 votes. IIRC for the 2006 poll the 50th place only received 2 votes.

miss precious perfect (musically), Monday, 2 February 2009 17:55 (ten years ago) link

it begins

k3vin k., Monday, 2 February 2009 17:56 (ten years ago) link

The one time I have fogiven Flo Rida his name.

Gukbe, Monday, 2 February 2009 18:04 (ten years ago) link

good title, good start

lex pretend, Monday, 2 February 2009 18:09 (ten years ago) link

i already wish i could totally redo my list, but it was ordered anyway so the ones i would cut i didnt give much weight to anyway

k3vin k., Monday, 2 February 2009 18:10 (ten years ago) link

i forgot to do traxx tho

xp agree with lex on title

(a mess0 (Ioannis), Monday, 2 February 2009 18:13 (ten years ago) link

i like "low" fine, but i was already sick of it at the beginning of '08, nevermind the end.

paper plans (tipsy mothra), Monday, 2 February 2009 18:17 (ten years ago) link

musically, you are a wonder for this. shame I gave up on the rap one, but the autogoons didn't want it in the first place.

a hoy hoy, Monday, 2 February 2009 18:25 (ten years ago) link

yeah I can imagine that for more niche polls that getting enough participation to make it worthwhile might be difficult.

miss precious perfect (musically), Monday, 2 February 2009 18:51 (ten years ago) link

one of my least fav t-pain productions ever - flo-rida's voice is crazy annoying and the flow he locks into is so ugh

jordy (J0rdan S.), Monday, 2 February 2009 19:59 (ten years ago) link

^^this

k3vin k., Monday, 2 February 2009 20:00 (ten years ago) link

i don't think T-Pain produced that one, but yeah, not one of my favorite hits of his, although I liked it a bit at first.

some dude, Monday, 2 February 2009 20:17 (ten years ago) link

yeah you're right, but i meant least favorite songs involving t-pain anyway. beat and stuff is actually aaaight

jordy (J0rdan S.), Monday, 2 February 2009 20:19 (ten years ago) link

I liked it enough to give it a vote. It's got an excellent intro, leaping all over the place thanks to my fancy new speakers. I can see what might be annoying about the delivery, but still a cracking pop tune nonetheless

70 points, 5 votes, 1 #1 vote
1210 in P&J

No Excuses is just about the fizziest, trembliest, most joyful thing I've heard, smeary piano and cascading string riffs swirling around like ambient happy hardcore. ― Tim F

Thoughts?

miss precious perfect (musically), Monday, 2 February 2009 20:36 (ten years ago) link

obsessed with this song

jordy (J0rdan S.), Monday, 2 February 2009 20:37 (ten years ago) link

Something I'll have to listen to when I get home

The Reverend (rev), Monday, 2 February 2009 20:40 (ten years ago) link

Less than forty seconds in, and already I wish I'd heard it in time

Ismael Klata, Monday, 2 February 2009 20:49 (ten years ago) link

yeah for some reason when i first heard that air france ep i didnt get into that much but just recently i've had it continuously on repeat. soooo nice

Gukbe, Monday, 2 February 2009 20:56 (ten years ago) link

Seriously, what a fabulous record. The section from 0:20 onwards is just euphoric. I'm playing it over and over in the dark in the depths of winter, with a beautiful warm feeling and a big summery grin on my face.

Ismael Klata, Monday, 2 February 2009 21:01 (ten years ago) link

maybe i should go back to the air france ep but i was really hyped about hearing it at the time, and just didn't feel it in the slightest :(

lex pretend, Monday, 2 February 2009 21:02 (ten years ago) link

That song would be better without the vocal bit, which is kinda bland and the tune doesn't really need it.

Tuomas, Monday, 2 February 2009 21:04 (ten years ago) link

But quite nice otherwise.

Tuomas, Monday, 2 February 2009 21:05 (ten years ago) link

just gave that EP another listen the other night, if I'd spent more time with it it would have placed in my list.

sleeve, Monday, 2 February 2009 21:09 (ten years ago) link

btw thanks for all your work Musically

sleeve, Monday, 2 February 2009 21:09 (ten years ago) link

The mood here (especially video, but also the music) reminds me a bit of 'Star Guitar' by the Chemical Brothers. The Chemicals' video is something else, but 'No Excuses' is by far the better tune

^would have voted for this if i did traxx. glad to see it place, my fav song of theirs

k3vin k., Monday, 2 February 2009 22:13 (ten years ago) link

No.48's pleasant enough (both versions), if a little dull. I just don't like that kind of treatment on the vocal either, singers should put themselves out there properly

Ismael Klata, Monday, 2 February 2009 22:23 (ten years ago) link

until we bleed raised my expectations too high for the lykke li album.

74 points, 7 votes

i like the vocals on 'Entropy' with the duet dynamic (a bit Human League perhaps), and the "heroin, cocaaaine" line keeps getting stuck in my head

I agree. Also, I would have voted for 3 A.M. from the Kleerup album if it had been option. Why I didn't nominate is beyond me.

Poison Dart - video of the decade. So menacing and amusing at the same time. So those pounding machines are he gets the devastating bass hits? Might be song of the decade too.

i stupidly left "poison dart" off my p&j list, so i was glad i got to vote for it here. (don't quite love that album like some do, but i do love that track.)

76 points, 7 votes
38 in P&J

Ten weeks on now, and this'll probably be up the business end of the charts for a little while yet. Heard it out last night, and the distinctly less-than-subtle boshing suggests it'll be a fixture on the mobile discos for some time to come.
-William Bloody Swygart

Hot N Cold has probably the best chorus I've heard this year.
― Matt Armstrong

miss precious perfect (musically), Tuesday, 3 February 2009 01:12 (ten years ago) link

i hate how the chorus of that never takes off and i suspect it's cuz she can't really sing. i can remember the chorus even tho i've avoided it which i think says something but it's a very unsatisfying song imo

your infinity in you is mad lifted (J0rdan S.), Tuesday, 3 February 2009 01:16 (ten years ago) link

first dud for me. my flatmate swears by it, but i got tired of it really fast. perhaps i was so disturbed by the bigotry of her previous singles that i've become a katie perry bigot myself. ooh, what a tangled web...

Gukbe, Tuesday, 3 February 2009 01:19 (ten years ago) link

damn I placed Entropy Reigns much higher, like top 5.

1. Musically: huge, huge respect.

2. Anyone who said anything even remotely like "wau wau wau why can't everyone like the same music as me s'not fair" and has failed to appreciate that ILM is a broad church of sometimes impressively diverse opinion: respect withdrawn, at least temporarily.

eight points from me for "I Hate This Part". hopefully i'm gonna go see them live in a few weeks time!

they are GREAT live. nicole is a force of nature.

i definitely voted for "Look Back At Me," was really happy to see it got nominated

it was ages before i realised it was basically trina's 'a milli' - not consciously i don't think, but they work in exactly the same way, a sparse beat which is barely there and totally extra at the same time, which just magnifies trina/wayne spitting o_0 weirdness.

lex pretend, Saturday, 7 February 2009 21:09 (ten years ago) link

also regretting not voting for brandy's '1st & love' now

lex pretend, Saturday, 7 February 2009 21:10 (ten years ago) link

the friendly fires aeroplane remix was a great recent revelation which i may well have voted for had i heard it in time - avoided it as hated the original but it's SO GOOOOD

lex pretend, Saturday, 7 February 2009 21:15 (ten years ago) link

yeah luckily it's nothing like the original at all.

call all destroyer, Saturday, 7 February 2009 21:15 (ten years ago) link

exactly. it really should have been voted as a separate track. best find due to this poll for me by far.

fhuck crank (Ioannis), Saturday, 7 February 2009 21:21 (ten years ago) link

yeah i had not even heard of that track before this thread, and when i listened to it, i jsut thought "hm this is like a slightly above-average DFA track". then i found out it actually was a slightly above average (imo) DFA track. apparently there was more to/of the song though?

― jammed hymen (k3vin k.), Friday, February 6, 2009 7:16 PM Bookmark

Yes, the whole song is 13 minutes long and has a couple whole distinct movements to it that aren't in the youtube video. If it didn't have those other parts it would just be a really good DFA track, but with them it is WAU.

The 9-minute version that surfaced first was cut out of a mix. There's a whole nother section that didn't get used in that mix.

The Reverend, Saturday, 7 February 2009 22:10 (ten years ago) link

The full-length version is also available as a full track on Last.fm. I know because I listened to it earlier this evening. It bored me shitless.

Special topics: Disco, The Common Market (grimly fiendish), Saturday, 7 February 2009 22:13 (ten years ago) link

Actually, no: there was one interesting bit towards the end when the bass got slightly evil. But, y'know, that still left 11'30" of tedium.

Special topics: Disco, The Common Market (grimly fiendish), Saturday, 7 February 2009 22:14 (ten years ago) link

I truly think most of Juan's debut album is better than "Happy House," which is nice but in no way exceptional or terrific.

ilxor, Saturday, 7 February 2009 22:23 (ten years ago) link

I'd also take three or four songs on the Hercules album before I'd pick "Blind" as the go-to track. But that's Internet era consensus for you...

ilxor, Saturday, 7 February 2009 22:23 (ten years ago) link

Sorry to braek hart, Rev, but the four minutes of Happy House posted above actually made me not want to track down the other 8, it just seems so mundane

still a bit annoyed that 'Blind' did so well in so many polls compared to 'You Belong' which was arguably stronger in it's original form

three months pass...

Listening to "Disturbia" now - had heard it 2-3 times before but now actually paying attention. It's pretty damn good except for the TITLE - "Disturbia"? It's just a corny word, and aligns badly with the the Marilyn Manson "gothy fast-motion spaz out" video imagery.

So, I just now on Youtube loaded the "Disturbia" video in one tab with the sound turned down, and Marilyn Manson's "The Beautiful People" in another tab with the sound turned up. It works really really well on the Rihanna vid - the lipsynching is maybe a little tighter when you do the opposite setup, but the moments when Rihanna and her dancers spazz out in time with Manson's guitars are just bliss.

two years pass...

2008 = worst year for singles that has ever existed.

I stand by this as well.
