Whew. I knew 2 songs going in, and only 1 of those made my 10. I'd at least heard a few others, but not enough to judge, so I've listened to them all. Tim my boy, I'm very happy with my final 10. I hope you are, too.

Thanks for the introductions. :bow:

Excellant list Tim. Really enjoyed listening to it. Most I had never heard and it was a hard choice as I could have put at least ten more songs on my list but didn't want to upset S2V ;);) Good job!!

One of the hardest lists to narrow down to just ten, so I didn't bother. :P

Definitely my kind of music, great choices Lizard. :D

what she said... I even threw out some big guns immediately just so that I could vote for more / other songs

but in the end I like the list of 50 more than my list of 10... thanks for the 5 hours of high quality listening :)

Looks like, for the most part, the big-hitters claimed the top ten. The exception being the Plastiscines, which just validates something I've been wondering for a long time: four ridiculously attractive young French girls playing extremely catchy pop rock, why are they not one of the biggest groups in the world right now? :P

Also surprised to see two of the more popular/critically acclaimed bands, Death Cab and Flaming Lips, so far near the bottom, but I'm really happy with the results overall because it seems like everybody got to learn something new about modern music. :D

*excuse me, but what does this mean? Is it just a typo? If not will it change anything in the results?

Elephants - Them Crooked 31

and

Vultures10

It's the same song, right?

EDIT: I just did a quick count since Steel isn't around and "Elephants - Them Crooked Vultures" got 41 votes. I'm glad, 'cause I liked that song. ;)

Because they are French and they scorn your American need to be the best in the world.

With the way tied-votes is done, Use Somebody had the higher spot than Snow as it had one more person vote for it than the other. So Elephants should be #9 and Use Somebody #10 with Snow Hey Oh just missing out.

@Chutzpah: Dude, buddy, Shannon was just making a joke. We often engage in friendly banter, this was one of those times. (P.S. You need to find the comfortable medium when it comes to quote boxes. :grin: )

@Peaches: :D I think (hope) I'm moving past the sad bastard stage in my life. Also, major props to da Admiral.
