I don't think that's ever been an inclusion in the ROTD results.

A lot more climbers in this section starting with my two favourite songs on the list which pleasingly finish together and well inside the third quarter. Mr. Probz after jumping into the final last year continues to rise to a new peak with 'Waves', already proving itself to be one of the best remembered dance hits of the decade. It's such a great track and I'm glad that time's being kind to it on this forum. Avicii's one and only track in the top 100 'Levels' sees a nice big boost for it too, proving itself to have legs here after jumping 306 places in the year of his death. As my personal favourite Avicii song I'm glad it is this of his discography that Buzzjack have taken to the most in retrospect anyhow. Perhaps next year we can send it out on a high and finally give it a deserved top 40 ranking.

Entering the final for the first time, although the song is five years old now, is 'Let It Happen' - seemingly passing everyone by when it was released but rightfully growing in popularity helped by Tame Impala's name getting bigger and him coming back with new material this year. I didn't have room for it in my votes this time but it's a song I can get behind doing well here as an indie inclusion. Unfortunately sliding down and out of the top 40 for the first time are Clean Bandit with 'Rather Be', although it is still their top song in the ranking. Chase & Status also are sadly out of the top 40 following their one year in with 'Blind Faith' - though five years running in the final is impressive given its slow start.

Helped by the release of new material Kiesza now gets a new peak with 'Hideaway' which is great to see, up to #56 and remaining in contact with 'Anything Could Happen' which re-peaks at #55. We've also got a double bill of Calvin Harris as 'Sweet Nothing' also rebounds to its peak of #53 alongside 'One Kiss' rising to #54. It means Calvin's sole top 50 entry is 'We Found Love', and as that song has always been in the top 20 we could be waiting a while to see him here again. Finally we get our 2nd highest brand new entry in 'Everything I Wanted' – this means only one song from 2019 has actually made the top 50 making it a very weak year (or just anti-recency bias having an effect). In fact the top 50 is very much skewed toward the beginning of the decade so there will be a lot of shake up in the next few years.

Lots of good songs hitting new peaks in the 51-80 section - hooray in particular for 'Hideaway', 'Let It Happen' (up with non charting songs cheer.gif), 'Spectrum (Say My Name)', 'Judas' and 'Stay High' (as if this is the first top 100 appearance for the latter) + the re-peaks for 'Sweet Nothing' and 'Anything Could Happen'! As probably the only person in the world who thinks it's one of her worst songs I am a bit bemused at 'Ride' climbing so much although really it's surprising that it hasn't already been top 100 as well.

Eek at Katy and Little Mix both being out already, definitely expected a higher debut for 'Never Really Over'. Happy that 'Move' is rightfully LM's highest song though. Also booo at 'Blind Faith' and 'Figure 8' taking big drops, though still not terrible results for them.

'everything i wanted' not far off doubling the score of 'bad guy', wow! Shame it has just missed the top 50 but clearly a rough year for debuts if that is the second highest.

A superb result for Let It Happen *.*

Great to have both Arcade Fire songs still to come too, but there are half a dozen or so in the top 50 that I'm completely ignorant to.

That large fall for 'Teenage Dream' is criminal sad.gif one of the best pop songs of the 2010s.

On the other hand, I'm so pleased that 'Ride' has triumphed so much this year wub.gif the climb for 'Let It Happen' is great to see too.

The only thing I approve in these results is the brilliant Everything I Wanted far ahead of the average Bad Guy.

Still disagree with the inclusion of the songs that didn't chart at all. sad.gif

I think it was Bré who pointed out that there are hardly any records in the list that didn't chart so it really wouldn't make much difference. Plus the contest is supposed to be finding out what Buzzjack's favourite records of the past decade are, not their favourite records within a fixed set of rules. A song that didn't chart wouldn't do well in this unless it was genuinely popular among the member base who vote so I don't see your logic other than you don't like seeing other people's favourites being included!

I feel like over time, the distinction of what did & didn't chart gets less significance. It has a modicum of sense in the CD/digital era since going below the chart meant light scraps of sales, but nowadays you can get healthy sales without even going near the charts. It's not the relevant Tame Impala song here, but "The Less I Know The Better" is arguably right now, the most popular song from 2015, the only real competition being the descending viral "Play Date" in some markets. It's gone platinum in the UK without touching the top 100, at which point, the fact it didn't chart just feels arbitrary. Sometimes that difference is just a matter of being on all the right playlists for a few months vs. not being on them, or having a viral spurt on SCR vs ACR and who really wants to give that credence?

(I also dispute "Let It Happen" passing everyone by at the time, I loved it the day it dropped cheer.gif )

50 [167] = P!nk = Try = 387pts
(266-219-335-473-159-164-167-50-)
[17th, 2012; SF 19th]


49 [73] = Ariana Grande = God is a Woman = 388pts
(73-49-)
[4th, 2018]


48 [57] = Adele = Rolling in the Deep = 392pts
(08-18-24-51-43-39-58-57-48-)
[1st, 2011]


47 [314] = Fun. (feat Janelle Monae) = We Are Young = 393pts
(137-379-243-126-202-221-314-47-)
[12th, 2012; SF 10th]


46 [101] = Taylor Swift = Wildest Dreams = 394ps
(474-125-148-101-46-)
[11th, 2015; SF 8th]


The top 50 kicks off with 5 songs climbing the chart this year and 4 out of the 5 songs taking climbs to reach new peaks. At 50 is the only appearance of P!nk in the ROTD top 100 with Try a song which has never reached the final round before and climbs a massive 127 places this year. The song actually had a couple of lowly finishes in its heats; 17th in the 2012 match and 19th in its semi-final, however it was backed in the final and manages to reach the top 50. Rolling in the Deep takes a small climb here to re-enter the top 50 after a two year absence. The song actually topped its 2011 match, so it feels a bit like its underperformed coming to the final especially finishing just 2 places above Try which seemed to have a harder route, also all 4 other songs in 2011 which had a direct route to the final out-perform it here.

Ariana Grande makes her first of four appearances in the top 50 with God is a Woman which climbs 24 places in its second year. Whilst Taylor Swift’s Wildest Dream surges 55 places to also reach a new peak at 46. Wildest Dreams is Taylor’s second highest song this year with Style still to chart. Finally a massive climb at 47 for We Are Young which has never even graced the top 100 in its seven previous attempts, This year however it climbs 267 places to reach an all time high. I’m actually surprised the song hasn’t done better in past years and it will be interesting to see if it manages to maintain a top 100 position for the next couple of years before its out.

I don't mind songs that didn't chart being included - if it's what Buzzjack likes then it shouldn't matter if the public liked it. This isn't a new thing either, I remember "The Girl and the Robot" by Röyksopp and Robyn used to do well here despite it never charting in the UK/US.

I think it's interesting that for some reason this year Buzzjack suddenly loves Lana del Rey, Grimes and Billie Eilish but that's why I like about this Buzzjack institution. Sometimes Buzzjack is in a Pop era, sometimes it likes R&B, this year it likes ~moody females.

Ooh a nice climb there for 'God is a woman'. BuzzJack's Ariana taste is more on point than last year thus far. All of these songs entering the top 100 for the first time seem a bit random (I guess Taylor might sort of make sense due to the recent popularity of 'folklore' but what would have prompted such a big rise for the other 2?) - such is the nature of ROTD ~

'Rolling In The Deep' staying pleasingly consistent (beyond its first three years).

Loving that climb for 'God is a woman' wub.gif BuzzJack is now forgiven after dumping it out in AF Idol (still salty? me? pfffft...)

I also appreciate that rise for 'Wildest Dreams'. Quite a Lana-esque song for Taylor so definitely fits in with the 'BuzzJack stans moody girl songs in 2020' narrative.

It's another good year for Robin Schulz as alongside 'Waves' climbing, 'Prayer In C' with its still relevant lyrics also remains in the top 50 for a second year. Hopefully before its decade is out it can get a top 40 spot considering how close it's been. Managing a new peak this year however is 'Diamonds' which I'm surprised it's taken this long since release to finally make the top 50, being so close in the last two years, it's one of her absolute best for me anyhow, I'd even personally swap its position with 'Only Girl' which is still yet to come alongside 'We Found Love'.

It's also a good final year for Kylie Minogue, not that she's stopped making music of course, but with both of her last big Buzzjack hits coming from 2010 - the first of these 'Get Outta My Way' drops from last year's top 40 but still finishes on its 2nd-highest position by some distance, and 'All the Lovers' still has the opportunity to re-peak. Christine continues her stable (by RotD standards) chart run with 'Tilted' albeit dropping out the top 40 for the first time it still does well at #42 and unfortunately just missing out by a single point is the brilliant 'Nothing Breaks Like A Heart' taking a big jump in its second year. As it's a song I think will age very well I'm sure it'll be a top 40 staple by next year anyhow.

I agree that 'Nothing Breaks Like A Heart' seems like a song that is going to age well. Pleased to see the rise for that and continued stability for Christine.
