  • Notes!
    • My #1 appears to have made the top 100, which I didn't expect.
    • I tried to pick artists who had a fighting chance of getting other votes but I couldn't neglect JID, Josh Gracin, Jack Savoretti, Martin Garrix, or Saint Motel and not surprised I'm the lone voter for those. Not surprised it's all male artists too. Not surprised about Sam Hunt either, but I don't know what I was thinking giving him that many points.
    • However, I am surprised my five points are the only ones for Lil Nas X though I thought at least Infamous would kick in a few points with me.
    • I am disappointed no one else voted for RAYE. I'm also mildly disappointed Doja Cat didn't make the top 100, but even more so Chloe x Halle didn't. They were in my top 20.
    • Wow, someone else voted for Caro Emerald? And Zedd?
    • Others that I voted for include Cardi B and Tove Lo.
    • Bastille wasn't in my list, but made my honorable mentions
    People that I wanted to, or forgot to vote for, include:
    • Hayley Kiyoko
    • Courtney Barnett
    • India Arie (props to whoever voted for her - I'm mad I forgot about her!).
    • Celeste - a discovery this year, but too new to me to include her.
    • Fleet Foxes is a cool pick, but would never have remembered them.
    • Gossip! - Ah, there was a hot moment when I was obsessed with them.
    • Kaiser Chiefs
    • Duffy - I should have included her - I was obsessed with her debut.
    • Gorillaz
    • Emeli Sande

    • The long list is such a good reference point for the last 20 years of music by the way, I’m gonna look through again at some point and remind myself of forgotten gems.

        Oh I missed that she's out. I kicked in three points for Lizzo I think I lost about 1/3 of my list.

        Remember this for my countdown

        • Lil Nas X being so low is surprising, given how many people seem to love his mediocre songs.

          I need to delve more into the lists because there are so many names!

            Team Tinashe was comprised of yourself, JeremySpears abi Ska8er Ivica and likeidogoldlink. She needed another 28 points to make the top 100.

            CZB was the only other Agnes supporter.

            I don't know how I missed that typo!

            Ah, I got a submission with "Emile" and I missed that...which is actually interesting considering that this would impact our top 100. I might slot her in in defiance of mathematical order.

            It was an imposter - Carly Rae "Jepson" - that fell. Everyone's fave CRJ is still to come.

            CZB actually had Caro Emerald as his #2; theMathematician sent her eight points.

            Similarly, CZB was Zedd's biggest supporter, though AndiIversen ludichris and Affillate also chipped in for the DJ.

              No, I voted for BIGBANG too.

              • So far I've lost:

                Lindsey Stirling - I have Tansike to thank for introducing me to her. I've kept up for the most part with her releases and have really enjoyed her output.
                Glee Cast - such great memories associated with their covers. Fellow Gleeks Spartan and Ska8er - we tried, but they needed another 56 points to make the top 100.
                Cardi B - definitely one of the most exciting new faces in hip/hop of the last decade. I remember how obsessed I was with "Bodak Yellow" back in 2017.
                Miranda Lambert - definitely one of my favourite country music acts.
                Megan Thee Stallion - thought she'd get more support; definitely think she's super talented and that Good News was a great debut effort.
                Sara Bareilles - I mainly voted for her because of "She Used to Be Mine" and "I Choose You" - two of my fave songs of the last 20 years.
                Zayn - killer debut era, things have kinda petered out, quality-wise, since then.
                Conchita Wurst - my fave ESC champ.
                Lizzo - she does great, feel-good, soul-pop music.

                [33 POINTS] - Lindsey Stirling
                [17 POINTS] - Glee Cast
                [11 POINTS] - Cardi B
                [09 POINTS] - Miranda Lambert
                [08 POINTS] - Megan Thee Stallion
                [05 POINTS] - Sara Bareilles
                [04 POINTS] - Zayn
                [03 POINTS] - Conchita Wurst
                [02 POINTS] - Imagine Dragons
                [01 POINTS] - Lizzo

                    You stylised it as "Big Bang", so I missed it and didn't combine the two. Oops.

                        I just listened to "Crew". It's kind of a bop.

                          • Hard-Fi and Mark Ronson just missed my votes so pleased others voted them. Extra pleased that my hun Patrick Wolf was so close to top 100 as he's one of two of my top 10 I lost so far. The other being Inna who wasn't far away either. And yes Thriller I voted Shapeshifters.

                                I would seem to be the guilty party on all of these counts.....






                                Having just checked right through the results already posted, I'm quite surprised that my fifty are pretty evenly split three ways.

                                The sixteen on which I was the only voter:

                                [41 POINTS] - Robin Schulz
                                [36 POINTS] - Lasgo
                                [34 POINTS] - Alle Farben
                                [32 POINTS] - Lost Frequencies
                                [30 POINTS] - Fritz Kalkbrenner
                                [29 POINTS] - Paul Kalkbrenner
                                [27 POINTS] - Ofenbach
                                [21 POINTS] - Jan Wayne
                                [18 POINTS] - Ilona (Mitrecey)
                                [17 POINTS] - Circ
                                [15 POINTS] - Dash Berlin
                                [12 POINTS] - Northern Heightz
                                [10 POINTS] - Tones and I
                                [09 POINTS] - Novaspace
                                [04 POINTS] - Passenger
                                [02 POINTS] - Agnes Obel

                                And the sixteen lower-ranking on which I was a contributor towards bigger total scores:

                                [49 POINTS] - Caro Emerald [of 82]
                                [40 POINTS] - Clean Bandit [of 68]
                                [38 POINTS] - KT Tunstall [of 72]
                                [37 POINTS] - Cascada [of 117]
                                [33 POINTS] - Zedd [of 79]
                                [31 POINTS] - Fun. [of 48]
                                [28 POINTS] - Regina Spektor [of 105]
                                [25 POINTS] - Jem [of 48]
                                [24 POINTS] - Alan Walker [of 54]
                                [20 POINTS] - Meghan Trainor [of 99]
                                [19 POINTS] - Sarah Connor [of 109]
                                [16 POINTS] - Charlie Puth [of 72]
                                [13 POINTS] - Agnes [of 54]
                                [11 POINTS] - Stromae [of 25]
                                [07 POINTS] - Petra Marklund [of 46]
                                [06 POINTS] - Little Boots [of 71]

                                Which still leaves eighteen still to come inside the top 100!



                                Three other acts that I noticed mistakenly appearing twice each in the list so far:

                                S Club 8

                                Roisin Murphy

                                Fontaines DC

                                  Just realised i lost Kate Nash, too. So i only have 10 left. I've now edited my post.

                                  You didn't answer my Evanescence question JSparksFan

                                  • ^ I also didn't include Evanescence for the same reason - they would have been very high on my list otherwise

                                    Will check the whole list & do a bigger comment on it tomorrow!

                                    • - The act in question would have needed to release either their debut single or debut album within that 1/1/2001 - 12/31/2020 window. For cutoff purposes, we'll go with the earlier of the two single/album release dates.
                                      If I understand the rules correctly, it depends on 'Fallen' and 'Bring Me to Life', which were released in 2003.

                                      • I would count an EP as a single or a mini album. In any case, it was an official release, not a demo.
                                        It looks like many other people thought they weren't eligible, either.

                                        • OMG - I've lost so many good acts already. What's the matter with y'all and your suspect taste in music?!

                                          I ranked JP Cooper so highly on the back of one album - one of my favourite albums of ALL-TIME - We Were Raised Under Grey Skies, it is utterly flawless. I also can't believe I was the only one to vote for acts like Damien Rice and that acts like Gossip did so badly.

                                              I was about to put them even higher.
                                              I'll look for the General Music forum btw.


                                              And I'm glad that other people also voted for 2NE1, TWICE and Blackpink.


                                              Also the entire list made me remember many artists that I haven't listened to in years. The 2000s were great.

                                                I really went in for the nostalgia - I was massively obsessed with him for a few years, I can remember getting his debut album for Christmas one year and I was smitten.

                                                What My Heart Wants to Say remains a bonafide classic and it should be an automatic ban tbh for anyone who disagrees.

                                                    Yeah, I accepted Evanescence because their pre-2001 career clearly seemed to be underground enough to the point that the average music fan might've not been prompted of their existence until 2003. The OP list was never meant to be all-inclusive and there were discussions within this thread about other acts with borderline cutoff or limited releases (like Sia and Gwen Stefani).
