I love when the list is done, cause we get to see 250-500, and I can see my favorites.

Like these top 10!

495 DJ Shadow Six Days 151 2
462 Badly Drawn Boy Silent Sigh 162 2
417 Public Enemy He Got Game 176 2


I'm glad to see my #1 made it...by 38 places.

Ice Hockey Hair EP and "Herman Loves Pauline" not making the top 500 is really lame guys. Especially when "Juxtaposed With You" did.

Other than that fairly solid list you have to say. Obviously a great #1, Surprised The Verve were so high but that's pretty much a cornerstone late 90's song (although "History" is better.) Not sure if the two best 'rock' singles of 2004 both deserve to be in the top ten but I don't think there's much denying that "Take Me Out" is a fantastic record. I remember phoning people to ask if they'd heard it yet and playing it down the phone in Late November 2003. Really the last rock single that just blew me away.
Nice bowl of Crunchy Nut you got here, pretty expensive as I recall.

great work GDB

i believe i ended up w/ 45 singles from my list that made the countdown.... i am awesome


Can Pulp duplicate their success on the album side?



you need to switch your avatar to Butters.


and Montana, you voted for........... oh that's right. You didn't even submit lists. Come down from your throne and join us down here sometime :)


Float on

Kidz Bop>> Modest Mouse


This is a stupid thing to say.


I'm sorry, but it's true.


wow.... don't take everything so seriously. if u remember any kidz bop banter that goes on this board, you'll realize that derek and i........... are probably twisted individuals who love kidz bop too much ;)

"After much thought into this, I have finally come to a conclusion as to why the 慚eet the Spartans commercial is so funny:

It is an interesting choice to have Sanjaya sing 慖抦 not gay, as his final words on earth. As he is plummeting into a seemingly bottomless pit, he does not say 慸ear god no, 慖 love you mom, or even simply 慳rgh. He instead takes the moment to reaffirm to the world, in spite of their doubts, that he is not a homosexual. Not only that, but he continues to sing, despite falling to his certain death. The distinct lack of plausibility of this situation is what produces giggles from our mouth. It is the antithesis to the belief that 慽t抯 funny because it is true.

those were five of the top six

goddamn man, what did you used to listen to??

At that point I had just started listening to indie rock. When was that poll, early 05? I'd probably only been really listening to music for a couple of months at that point. Before that I didn't really download or buy music at all. Just listened to a little classic rock for the most part. The SOMB is basically responsbile for shaping my taste in music. Good work everyone.

Ah but that kiss made it all worthwhile. You know what I'm talking about. ;)

Excellent work SOMB. Bittersweet Symph. i never would have expected so high.

Thanks for the hard work, GDB.

I had 20 in the top 250. 11 more in the next 250. My list was 68 songs, so that's not so bad actually. Highest vote not in top 500 was #9 "Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk" by Rufus Wainwright. Probably hindered by the fact that it wasn't listed as a single on the primary sites utilized by the voters. Was "Outfit" not a single? Must not've been because I'm sure it would've made the list. Guess I didn't do my homework on that one.
Sail Away: The Songs of Randy Newman -7.5/10
Dusty Springfield - Dusty in Memphis 8.5/10
Buddy & Julie Miller - Written in Chalk wow, first listen, but great great record! 9.3/10
Justin Townes Earle - Midnight at the Moviessurprisingly great, never picked up his past releases, but this one's knocking my socks off right away, 8.7/10
M. Ward - Hold Time 8.0/10
Neko Case -Middle Cyclone her best I've heard is my initial impression, but too soon to rate, haven't had a really good listen yet 7.8/10
