    Sorry, cheapthrills, same for me :( I don’t wanna come up with a spontaneous list, I’d really want to think my list through cuz I don’t wanna regret my votes afterwards. And I simply didn’t have the time for this and also won’t have it in the next few days, sorry :/ Please just proceed without me, but thanks for tagging me!

    • I forgot to include No Doubt's 'Push & Shove' on my list, but maybe a user who has yet to vote likes the song enough to put it onto their list ;) .

      • Thanks to all of you for putting up with my promo the last couple weeks.

        I have entered all the votes, and then went back through to see what mistakes I made

        Hopefully caught them all as it did rejigger who made it into the top 100. I decided to count Rat and Mainshow even though they were below the requisite 20 votes since they submitted more than what most people on our forum did. That at least gives us 34 voters to match the 1990s countdown.

        So now that I have entered the votes, a few notes:
        • With the last voter, we topped 800 songs total.
        • About 2/3 of the songs were submitted by only one voter.
        • 103 points were needed to make the top 100, which means at least three people had to vote for the song.
        • One song came close with two voters though - it ends up at #109.
        • With the last voter, the #1 song came from behind to take the top spot, winning by only five points.
        I'll start the countdown shortly - I'm going to try to go through the bottom half quickly as all but 28 of them are by single voters.

        Right now, I'm going to take a break from the spreadsheet though as I'm sick to death of looking at it.

        • So we start with all the songs that couldn't even manage to get double digits in points. That gets the first hundred or so songs. Surprisingly, this is the only time we'll see Halsey in the whole countdown. She got 7 points from G$ while the rest of us paid her dust.

          Do we have any guesses on...
          • Who has the most songs in the countdown?
          • Who has the most songs in the top 100?
          Anyhow, let's kick this off - ties going forward are broken first by total number of voters, then highest vote, then alphabetical order by artist name.

          • Wow, not cheapthrills exposing us like that.

            I didn't know you're gonna do the whole ranking. You're doing a great job with the presentation, must be exhausting just by looking at it.

            Comment


            • Dat presentation tho.

              That goes to show you how much of a non-factor Halsey is despite her success. WM was a low-key bop tho.

                    Thanks, that worked. For some reason, I had no issues with the forum default until an hour and a half ago when it became a cluster out of the blue.

                        It happens when you change your settings. I should have warned you.

                          I knew there must have been a correlation of sorts but didn’t bring it up because I have removed that name from my vocabulary.

                          • Oh Inescapable! what a Jam. I voted one other Jess Mauboy song. I had both Without Me and Boo'd Up in my shortlist as 2018 reps.

                            Lost Turning Tables (it was kinda a contempory to Someone Like You) and G.R.L.'s Ugly Heart, the long note before the final chorus kicks in is ace.

                            Side eye at You Are The Reason - pretty sure that was Leona added 'Perfect' style to the already released solo Calum Scott song was it not? Are they both equal billing on the duet version?

                            Also 'Solo' being eligible - I thought Clean Bandit would've been in the Guetta/Harris camp on featuring the singer side of things, Otherwise I might have considered ones like 'Rather Be' for Jess Glynne and 'Rockabye' for Anne Marie maybe.

                            As for artist with most entries/most Top 100, I'd say it could be between artists with most album eras (like Taylor/Rihanna had 4 during the '10's with some for Rihanna carrying over from Rated R into 2010) or with a lot of singles (The Teenage Dream + Confection era for Katy had 8 big songs, another 5 for Prism and so on). Could be artists popular with the voters/forum, although with the 3 song limit did a lot of us vote the same ones is the question.

                            • Tagging voters to let them know this has begun:



                              TBH - A) I don't know at least half of these songs; and B) I didn't generally research most of the single voter songs to see if they were eligible. Just kind of went on the honor system.

                              As far as Clean Bandit, I wasn't really sure what to do with them since they do have a female member. They didn't get a lot of votes in any case so I just went with it. (Scissor Sisters got a vote from someone as well, so they will be coming up. I mean, I consider Jake Shears as the lead, but it appears Ana Matronic has always been a co-lead, so... ok, I guess.)

                              Leona Lewis is credited as "with" and not featured, so it counts, even if it was originally a solo. (The Perfect duet would have counted as well, but no one voted for that.)

                              -----

                              Anyhow, as far as this group, Hello Happiness is a song that just missed my cut. Such a great comeback song for Chaka.

                              Really enjoy:
                              1. Madonna - I Rise
                              2. Adele - Turning Tables
                              3. Billie Eilish - When The Party's Over

                              • Gonna catch up with the countdown later today or tomorrow, but lol at "Solo". "Symphony" would have been in my Top10 but I thought it's clearly not eligible. It's really the same situation like "Titanium" & Co.

                                  Taylor actually had five eras during the 2010s. You may be forgetting Speak Now.

                                  • Regarding Clean Bandit: Wiki says that they have a female lead vocalist, so they would've been eligible indeed. 'Rather Be' could've made my list, but it is what it is now ;) .

                                    Interesting that abi voted for 'Primetime'. It made my first version of the list, but ended up in the bubbling under part. Another song by Janelle Monae made my list though and is yet to come .

                                    • That seems totally fair to me to not research the validity of 800 songs, jeeees that would take forever! Obvs if anyone makes the Top 100 dubiously we can enjoy the tantrums then...

                                      Aside from my own fallers, choice blooms already for me are Wet, When Love Hurts and One Strike

                                      I actually prefer these early rounds than the final 100 which tends to hold less surprises. Thanks in advance for all your efforts cheapthrills!

                                        • This is gonna be fabulous to see how the results pan out. Already lost my #50 and #49 which - considering they were Starley and Sigrid- i'm not shocked in the slightest.

                                          I agree with Akini that Rihanna is most likely to get the most appearances in the top 100.

                                          • Totally forgot to vote for Nicole Scherzinger's Wet. Shocked especially since it probably contains some of the best lyrics of any 2010s songs: "I'm waiting for a man with the fan who can give me a breeze".

                                            • Who has the most songs in the countdown?
                                              I'm guessing Rihanna

                                              Who has the most songs in the top 100?
                                              Maybe Madonna since the average user age in here must be like 45yo.

                                              I'm shocked I was the only one voting for Billie. This just confirms my state above.

                                              I almost voted for "Wet" but I thought it was a wasted vote (not too wrong though).

                                              I didn't now "Happy" by Marina was a single, otherwise I would have consider it.

                                              I'm not here for y'all paying dust to Clean Bandit when they were clearly eligible :(

                                                  I'm not offended.

                                                  I like RiRi!
