Top 10

Every year fans on the AC/RF mailing list take a few minutes to compile their list of Top 10 all-time favorite Roddy Frame songs. This year we tried something a bit different by creating an electronic ballot and putting it up on KMS.com for everyone to take part. During the last two weeks of 2000, people cast their votes for their favorite songs. Hopefully the results we've come up with here will be somewhat more definitive than those obtained in recent U.S. elections...

We tallied the ballots in two ways. First, we simply counted every vote for a song and totaled up the numbers. That would undoubtedly give us the "Top 10" we were looking for, but it also resulted in so many ties among different songs that we actually ended up with 17 songs in the "Top 10".

Second, we considered the fact that many voters compiled their Top 10 lists in the order they actually liked the songs. With that in mind, we came up with a simple weighted scale by which we could hopefully and unquestionably determine the true Top 10 for the year 2000. That scale was as follows: there were 10 songs to vote for plus an additional "Honorable Mention" category. The song in the #1 position received 11 points, #2 received 10 points, etc., all the way down to the Honorable Mention, which received 1 point.

All that said, here are the results for this year's Top 10 vote. Are you surprised by any of the final results? Did your list from last year to this year? Be sure to tell us about it on the AC/RF mailing list.
