Wow! What a list. I'm extremely surprised about Kingdom come, though I can see it, as it was the best song off of X & Y. BTW, what are the little numbers right after each song, i.e. (41, 38)?

would that be how many votes they got?

Wonderful list, we must all have good taste! It's about time 'With or Without You' got 1st!

Are you going to post your list?

Foolish Knight said...

Yes, Queen of Arts and England, my list is coming soon (hopefully).

Eucharisto, the numbers refer to the amount of points each song received. I just thought you guys might be interested to see just how close some songs were to others ("Kingdom Come", for example, is only one point away from tying for number one! How did that happen?).

I'm also hoping to give a little bit of commentary for this list too.

I've just started listening to the by Sufjan Stevens album. "Casimir Pulaski Day" is really a lovely little thing.

that last comment was me by the way

Casimir Pulaski Day...
...It almost seems impossible the way that Stevens sums up the meaning of beauty and pain within life, all in one simple song.
I will make the bold declaration that Sufjan Stevens is in the top ten best songwriters around today. Anywhere.
(this was inspired by a listen to the aforementioned song 5 minutes ago).
