https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atz_aZA3rf0

(No archival blurbs coming in this countdown. Too much work, not enough payoff. Plus, I'm exhausted.)

You are a fast tabulator!

skip, Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:04 (nine years ago) link

I'd been tabulating all along, but yesterday was the shit hitting the fan.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:05 (nine years ago) link

both of those were among the 10 tracks that just missed out on my ballot, so happy to see them place regardless

لوووووووووووووووووووول (lex pretend), Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:06 (nine years ago) link

ok with that many points per entry i cant decide if this is going to be shockingly boring or TOTALLY BIZARRE

98. CHAMILLIONAIRE ft. KRAYZIE BONE "Ridin'" (2005) [198.5 points, 10 votes]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CtwJvgPJ9xw

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:13 (nine years ago) link

Not going to be boring. How many days are you doing this over?

Ismael Klata, Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:14 (nine years ago) link

Probably five. Today thru Friday, and then next Monday and Tuesday.

I fucking love this Chamillionaire track, btw. Too low, imo.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:16 (nine years ago) link

oh man i was hoping that would be higher, fucking love that song.

AESTHOLE (jjjusten), Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:18 (nine years ago) link

Hmmm... it's times like this that I think that despite spending about 35% of my waking life attached to ILM, I must still be living under a rock as I've only heard the Damian track.

Didn't have the time/patience to vote in this poll. I looked at the choices and couldn't get very excited about that much on there compared to previosu ones. Strange because all-in-all I wouldn't say I was any less enthusiastic about music from the last five years than any other era.

village idiot (dog latin), Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:19 (nine years ago) link

wow my absolute last possible second number one vote for jamrock put it into the list. cool!

symsymsym, Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:20 (nine years ago) link

ok whoa im working out the statistics here and it looks like it takes (almost) 10 unranked ballots or 5 first place votes to get into the bottom 20% which is nuts

AESTHOLE (jjjusten), Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:20 (nine years ago) link

or obv some combination but you get what im saying

AESTHOLE (jjjusten), Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:21 (nine years ago) link

Wow that was fast!

the subject of many men’s thoughts (daavid), Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:21 (nine years ago) link

Yeah, I'm now a confirmed fan of the 40, 39, 38... ballot ranking style. Lessens the opportunity for ties (of which there is only one in this top 100), and it inflates the numbers mega huge.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:23 (nine years ago) link

97. RÓISÍN MURPHY "Overpowered" (2007) [199.5 points, 10 votes]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlFjf1pWk2c

Not the Róisín track I was most hoping for, but I'll take it.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:24 (nine years ago) link

I'm a little worried now that my #1 may not even make the list given that even #100 has a first place vote.

the subject of many men’s thoughts (daavid), Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:24 (nine years ago) link

xpost Does that mean that it'll be the only Roisin track? :(

the subject of many men’s thoughts (daavid), Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:24 (nine years ago) link

Did I give too much away? (Sorry, yes.) :(((((

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:25 (nine years ago) link

btw can use mod magic to edit if u want to maintain the surprise for peeps that havent made it here yet

AESTHOLE (jjjusten), Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:26 (nine years ago) link

I'm a little worried now that my #1 entire list may not even make the list given that even #100 has a first place vote.

you say this every time! none of the songs so far are exactly obscure.

i love everything so far, tho voted for none of them :)

لوووووووووووووووووووول (lex pretend), Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:29 (nine years ago) link

Did you click the youtube of "Ridin'" dog latin? Title may confuse a bit, not for nothing is it often referred to as "Ridin' Dirty".

Hey haha ilm has made/destroyed me, I'm 3/4 so far! :-O

anatol_merklich, Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:31 (nine years ago) link

i mean, obv if you haven't heard some/all of these, you should def click them youtubes, cuz these songs are great

لوووووووووووووووووووول (lex pretend), Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:33 (nine years ago) link

Yeah I know Lex. I think the r'n'b/hiphop/urban contingent on ILM must be really into poll voting. Either that or just the most popular style on ILX by far. Not that it's a problem of course but it's just something I've noticed.

At work, so I can't click on YouTubes, but I'll be sure to download the whole bunch soon.

96. THE KNIFE "Marble House" (2006) [204.5 points, 10 votes]

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:35 (nine years ago) link

Second what lex said. This list is great so far!

the subject of many men’s thoughts (daavid), Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:35 (nine years ago) link

aw, would have voted for that

based on logical thinking (HI DERE), Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:35 (nine years ago) link

i've heard this one. I can't remember off the top of my head how it goes as it's def not my favourite on Silent Shout.

village idiot (dog latin), Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:36 (nine years ago) link

Oh dear, goodbye work day. I'm with dog latin on the never heard half of these tip - I remember Jamrock being on the radio, I have the Knife album, and that's about it.

95. CAMERA OBSCURA "Lloyd, I'm Ready to Be Heartbroken" (2006) [204.5 points, 11 votes]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTa_RQC8ZxA

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:47 (nine years ago) link

Hadn't heard "Jamrock" or the Ne-Yo track before. Love them both, although probably not enough to have voted for them.

the subject of many men’s thoughts (daavid), Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:47 (nine years ago) link

btw everyone agrees that "not the best track on Silent Shout" isn't really saying much since the worst track on there is like a 7/10, right

based on logical thinking (HI DERE), Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:48 (nine years ago) link

Wait until you hear that Ne-Yo track for the 10th or 20th time. It will be in your blood.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:48 (nine years ago) link

Don't know if anyone agrees but videos so far also consistently excellent (except maybe the Chamillonaire one).

94. THE-DREAM "Fancy" (2009) [205.5 points, 8 votes]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SB1bBy_EgI

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:56 (nine years ago) link

Oh god, that Chamillionaire track drags up horrible college party flashbacks.

Camera Obscura would have been in competition for my #1 track had I ranked them.

skip, Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:57 (nine years ago) link

The way they move from minor to major key from "Hey Lloyd, I'm ready to"..."BE HEARTBROKEN," because being heartbroken is what actually makes her happy. Just a perfect song.

skip, Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:58 (nine years ago) link

well, diminished, but you get the point.

skip, Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:59 (nine years ago) link

I've not heard much Camera Obscura, but that song already scored big points with me for the Lloyd Cole titular nod.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:59 (nine years ago) link

How far do you plan to go today, Johnny?

the subject of many men’s thoughts (daavid), Wednesday, 30 June 2010 17:01 (nine years ago) link

Gonna do 100-81.

93. BIG BOI ft. GUCCI MANE "Shine Blockas" (2009) [206 points, 8 votes]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnbO8GE4V5M

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 30 June 2010 17:06 (nine years ago) link

surprised to see "shine blockas" show up!

camera obscura the only dud in an otherwise great list so far tho.

لوووووووووووووووووووول (lex pretend), Wednesday, 30 June 2010 17:12 (nine years ago) link

thx JF! Awesome, awesome work.

exit through the (Tape Store), Thursday, 8 July 2010 07:50 (nine years ago) link

looking at this list, I'm most disappointed in how "Helena" placed

exit through the (Tape Store), Thursday, 8 July 2010 07:50 (nine years ago) link

the good news is that "1 thing" is absolutely without a doubt the best song released in the last five years

young monet (samosa gibreel), Thursday, 8 July 2010 19:56 (nine years ago) link

love the moment abt 6 or 7 min deep when the massively blown-out rawk penice drops away to reveal the weird electro overtracings that'd been keeping pace the whole time, still slamming hard, but in a totally different way, crunchy digital noize chirping at the foundations and skittery dub echoes on the perimeter. Only then to drop the whole polluted mess down a slick lipped k-hole for a few seconds before blasting back zombie motorhead full frontal style. such a fucking BEAST of a thing. makes me dizzy with it.

YEAH! more like 7 and a half minutes in but this is what makes it for me. also AFTER the k-hole bit it brings BACK the slamming drums and the FIRST HALF of the rock noise, but keeps building tension by dropping the SECOND half and then gradually overlaying the (still k-holed) space created with madcap feedback squiggles - then after about 10 minutes it drops ALL the rock noise for four bars, during which time we've got nothing but muted thudding, THEN powers back full fucking steam ahead (about 10:15)

that bit where it's semi-ambient, semi-kickass is absolutely incredible, and then when it comes back in at 10:15 the SECOND half of the rock-phrase hitting is the slaying-est moment of the whole song.

so you want Mark Ronson to cry into your ass (acoleuthic), Thursday, 8 July 2010 20:07 (nine years ago) link

I don't want to open the thread in its entirety so I'll just ask here: is there a spotify playlist of those tracks?

Jibe, Thursday, 8 July 2010 21:00 (nine years ago) link

god damn. I've never heard Ciara - Oh until these poll results appeared. Can't stop playing this. I may well be over it by Sunday or something but it sounds so great tonight. Behind the times as ever (this charted in the UK in 2005 - really? Shame)

kraudive, Thursday, 8 July 2010 23:28 (nine years ago) link

Jibe, I did one but I'm not at my computer right now - I'll post it later.

Long long delay but:

denizens of the funky house thread will be aware of this already, but the dj naughty remix of "love lockdown" is a must-hear - http://rapidshare.com/files/235235593/Kanye_West_-_Love_Lockdown__DJ_Naughty_Remix_.mp3

Lex, <3 you forever boo.

Tim F, Monday, 12 July 2010 12:03 (nine years ago) link

cant believe on a poll of 2005-2009 there isnt one single funky house song :(

just sayin, Monday, 12 July 2010 12:09 (nine years ago) link

Even if I had voted would it have made a difference? The uk funky thread has about 6 regular posters, but uk funky has produced about 600 genuinely great tracks...

Tim F, Monday, 12 July 2010 12:15 (nine years ago) link

Good looking tracklist, though a bit on the conservative side.

Tim F, Monday, 12 July 2010 12:47 (nine years ago) link

Yeah I was going for something that would provide an overview for someone with virtually no knowledge of the genre.

Matt DC, Monday, 12 July 2010 13:07 (nine years ago) link

I'd like to take back what I said about the Jackie Chain tune upthread. This has totally 180'd me.

Wow, so, lots for me to dig back through here! Def some unfamiliar tunes. Listened to the Amerie for the first time just now and I loved it - lots of nice hooky surprises along the way although the main vocal is a little...shrill? I feel like it'd grate if I listened to it a couple times in a row. But great track. Best in 5 years I dunno, but thanks for introducing me to it, ILX!

Doctor Casino, Friday, 23 July 2010 13:44 (nine years ago) link

wait are you talking about '1 thing'?

orakle-krake (Gukbe), Friday, 23 July 2010 15:26 (nine years ago) link

I actually first heard "1 Thing" thanks to the ILM poll for whatever year it came out. (A toast to those of us who live under a rock.)

_Rudipherous_, Saturday, 24 July 2010 02:13 (nine years ago) link

Yes, "1 Thing." I do live under the occasional rock though.

Doctor Casino, Saturday, 24 July 2010 05:21 (nine years ago) link

I remember WBLS playing "1 Thing" a lot early in 2005 .. I think it just barely made the cut for this list (which reminds me, "Since U Been Gone" was late '04 but did not catch on until '05.. It was performed at that same football game where Ashlee Simpson sang "La La" really poorly which was just after New Years '05.. However, it should still count for this list since the 2000-2004 poll was conducted in like August '04.)

billstevejim, Sunday, 25 July 2010 15:57 (nine years ago) link

Yeah, Since U Been Gone was from a 2004 album (like Hollaback Girl was too), but was a single in 2005. I remember that Orange Bowl performance. I'd kind of forgotten about Kelly Clarkson at that point, as it had been three years since she won American Idol, and I wasn't expecting anything new from her to be like that. It was a good night...for everyone except Ashlee Simpson and Bob Stoops.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 25 July 2010 18:04 (nine years ago) link

45:33 - immense. Looks like I wrote lcd off too soon. The 45:33 thread is a lot of fun too.

Ismael Klata, Monday, 26 July 2010 20:12 (nine years ago) link

Goddammit, I just because really disappointed that I didn't nominate "According to Plan" by I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness. How many other people would've voted that up? Just curious.

not really...it was the single that launched the album, which was released in late November 04 ("Breakaway" was kinda the first single but it'd been a soundtrack hit for several months at that point, so they just kinda named the album after it to ride its momentum). it was already in heavy rotation on pop radio and video channels by the end of the year, it just didn't make its big gradual crossover and chart peak until like March.

Wikipedia says December '04, RYM says February '05 re: Since U Been Gone. Either way, it would've fallen in the gap between the polls if not included here since the last one was held in fucking AUGUST of 2004.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 30 July 2010 18:27 (nine years ago) link

I should've given more love to 'I'm A Flirt' - had it as my no. 32, which I now reckon is at least thirty places too low. Is there any song more fun to holler along to?
