03:11 pm - SONGS OF 2011 POLL
*dusts off cobwebs*

RIGHT DUDES now is the time to make a list, check it twice, and send me your favourite songs of 2011!

  • Send up to 20 songs of 2011 to poptimistspoll2010@gmail.com* by 1am GMT on 31st 30th December (yes I am in the office that day and will need some distraction)

  • 'Songs of 2011' can mean songs released this year, or songs that emerged this year, or singles taken from a 2010 album released this year. To be honest I will be pretty lenient about the whole business so put whatever you like.

  • The order of your top 20 is important! Your #1 will be allocated more points than #20. If you can't think of 20 songs then 10 or 14 or 2 is just fine.

  • Bonus points may be awarded for emails with amusing subject lines.

  • You don't need to be a poptimists LJ member (or even have an LJ account!) to vote.

  • I'll post the results in the first week of January.



*Recycling emails is good for the environment!
**I am an idiot - 31st is a Saturday so I won't be in work...

By my calculation, that's 6:00 PM, Friday December 30, Mountain Standard Time (and 8:00 PM, Friday December 30, Eastern Standard Time).

Are you doing this in conjunction with the Freaky Trigger poll, as you did last year?

Haha dude there may not BE a Freaky Trigger poll at this rate!

Also just to be annoying I might move the deadline a day back because I forgot the 31st was a Saturday (and thus I won't be in work).

I surmise that you DON'T want us to put "poptimists songs poll" in the subject line.

The embed should be there if you click through to the poptimists thread itself — if you're seeing this via email notification, click where it says "view all comments" or follow this link:

If that doesn't work, here's the YouTube link:

Michael - Listened to several of the ones I hadn't heard before — which are most of them — and added two to my (as-yet-unfinished) Top 100. Haven't had time yet to listen to more.

Which two ? Inquiring Oddb all Wants to know ! I suppose you saw Chuck's Top 100 CDs list. i was utterly amazed. He has discovered Southern Soul...and Jazz ! But he still doesn't understand house music. Oh well.
