I have no idea if you can back up community archives from Livejournal to Dreamwidth, but after the recent LJ downtime I'm going to give it a go.

New posts are very welcome of course - tell us about a pop song you've enjoyed recently. Link to a video if you like!

Better late than never! I forgot to check the OCC one week in June so apols if the best song ever has been missed off - bung it in the comments if so and I'll tack it on to July's poll. As far as I can work out it's been either Jason DeRulo, Example or Pitbull at #1 for the duration.

[Poll #1760000]

Feel free to post your Top 20 lists for 2011 in the comments!

Hello Poptimists! Happy 4th of July to the Americans. Condolences for your loss of a few awesome colonies to the Brits.

For those of you not in the Tumblrverse (more specifically my Tumblrverse), here is a summer mix I made combining c. 98-01 teenpop and (mostly) current hip-hop. Felt it would be appropriate to share here as we continue to track and trudge through the last decade.

Britney! Waka! Dev! B*Witched! Rawse! Vitamin C! Wayne! 5ive! Robyn! A*Teens! Xtina! Fucking Drake! Etc!

What happened in May, then? Well, at one point Lady Gaga had four tracks in the top 40 (but then so did Adele), Blue solidly outperformed Jedward chart-wise and several boring songs by awful dudes were at number one.

[Poll #1747218]
Lower reaches watch: Charlie out of Busted got to #65; Sweden, Denmark and Azerbaijan's Eurovision entries made the top 100 while Jedward got to #82; Glee mopped up pretty much all the remaining slots.

*Charted BEFORE their Eurovision appearance! That's loads better than poor old Josh Dubovie who didn't chart at all last year.
**Charity single that charted one place below the Black Eyed Peas' totally unrelated "Just Can't Get Enough"
***Any ideas?

Official heats for 2006 are now closed! Here is your current list of finalists, we will have a quick mop up of the also-rans tomorrow to get the last few places in the top 40 filled.

In the interests of meta-polling I draw your attention to the two three NOW albums of 2006:
Now 63
Now 64
Now 65

mathematically safe )

See you next week to review my maths skills innit. [nb: do not review my maths skills]

LMFAO finished April at the top of the charts, having spent the preceeding weeks at #3 and #2 behind J-Lo doing the Lambada. Between them they've chased Adele out of the top 10! Let's see what everyone else has been up to:

We are at the final proper heat of 2006; there'll be some mathematical mop-up at the end but this is pretty much the final curtain. As it's a short heat (36 rather than 40 contenders) you only get FIVE ticks. Which is a shame, as the end of the alphabet is looking great- like all good compilations it's got a dodgy indie collection at the end but there's some ruddy great hits before then.

Through from the last round were the following-
Girls Aloud- Something Kinda Ooooh (14 ticks)
Lily Allen - Smile (12 ticks) (this surprises me)
Rihanna - SOS (9 ticks)
The Gossip - Standing In The Way Of Control (9 ticks)
Paris Hilton - Stars Are Blind (7 ticks)
Jojo - Too Little Too Late (7 ticks)

(Okay, actually all of that lot surprise me)

The winner in the Heat 4 playoff was Amy Winehouse and her Rehabs. Amy will no doubt be very pleased about this victory and if you pop along to the right place in Camden you can probably join her in celebrating.


Extra (sixth) ticks in this round go to: [livejournal.com profile] braisedbywolves, [livejournal.com profile] infov0re and [livejournal.com profile] askbask

[Poll #1737883]

This heat will close LUNCHTIME GMT on FRIDAY 6th May.

Heat 4, a battlefield on which many SOLID GOLD TRACKS lie beaten and bloodied, has left us with a four-way tie as this lot haul themselves up for another go. There can be ONLY ONE WINNER; go forth and literally pick some pop.

[Poll #1734913]

[Poll #1734914]

This poll will close TUESDAY 3rd at lunchtime-ish GMT. Effing bank holidays.

It's the penultimate Heat of 2006! I can't do maths it transpires (or rather 'didn't think about needing to do any maths when I started this') so we will also actually have a post-heat-6 poll of the nearly-rans to get the numbers up to 40 but we're getting there.

Through from the Heat Of Death:
Justin Timberlake - SexyBack (12)
Nelly Furtado - Promiscuous (11) (this rly surprises me! I thought it was the weakest single)
Taylor Swift - Should've Said No (10)
Nelly Furtado - Say It Right (10)
Hot Chip - Over & Over (9)

And there's a four-way tie on 7, more of which later...


Extra ticks from last round go to [livejournal.com profile] koganbot and [livejournal.com profile] credoimprobus. (GUYS, it is so easy! You just write a thing in a box! You can lie if you like although obviously I'd rather you didn't and it wouldn't be in the interests of FAIR POLLIN' which might as well be our only attempt at a purpose etc. etc.)

[Poll #1734903]

Poll closes lunchtime GMT, Tuesday 3rd May.

Whoops, I forgot Friday was a bank holiday. Anyway, here we are with a HOLS-O-POLL for anyone sitting indoors on a computer at this time. As even the universally terrible Radio 1 has managed to swap with 1Xtra in an effort to play some half-listenable music selected and presented by people who aren't utterly dire morons for once I thought the least I could do was to poll one of the three compilations I could find with 'spring' in the title.

Quick reminder that you have a few short hours to decide whether Cassie or Lupe Fiasco are worthy of a place in the 2006 song playoffs here. There's currently one vote in it so everything to play for.

And that you have that +24 hours to make the mindbending decisions as to whether you prefer SexyBack or My Love, Promiscuous or Rehab, Marit or Margaret, etc., etc., etc. here.

More ticky boxes to follow on Wednesday.
[identity profile] piratemoggy.livejournal.com
Last time we did a qualifying playoff it was discovered, to genuine shock, that Poptimists are not secretly indie after all (we turned this diagnosis round in the next heat, regrettably) as Beyonce, Cascada, Fergie and Blog 27 all sailed through leaving guitar fiends the Yeah Yeah Yeahs to drop out.

Mathematically safe from Heat 3 are the following 5:
Lily Allen - LDN (14 ticks, to my utter astonishment)
Beyonce- Irreplaceable (13 ticks)
Cassie - Me & U (12 ticks)
Nelly Furtado - Maneater (11 ticks)
Camera Obscura (!!!) - Lloyd, I'm Ready To Be Heartbroken (9 ticks, good to see we are back on the indie horse)

Which leaves the following two on six ticks each and now in what Chezza Cole would accurately describe as a FITE FOR YR LOVE. Will Lupe Fiasco land a few low blows or will Cassie outrun him? The answer *seems* predetermined but this isn't a match I ever would've expected...

[Poll #1732393]

ETA: this poll will close LUNCHTIME TUESDAY 26th GMT.

ETA2: CASSIE is the winner, with 11 votes to Lupe's 10.

Time for another heat and CRIKEY is this one bringing the hits. When I was typing out the poll I found myself wincing every other entry for the last 20 or so as I realised how many MONSTROUS STORMERS there were here; I think this one will probably be very tight.

[The last one has produced a final-qualifying-place tie, so I will do another post about that in a minute innit]


As there are bank holidays a-happening, this poll will stay open until LUNCHTIME WEDNESDAY 27th APRIL GMT.

[Also coming up for next week: TERRIBLE COMPILATIONS for EVERY OCCASION and a POLL ABOUT SUCH for every day the guvmint give us off werk, woohoo! So even if you can't remember 2006, you'll have something to tick if you're in front of a computer- they won't be time-sensitive so if you're not you can go back and do it later. ANYWAY, back to the job at hand...]

People with extra ticks this round: [livejournal.com profile] lockedintheatti, [livejournal.com profile] justfanoe, [livejournal.com profile] koganbot and [livejournal.com profile] credoimprobus. Y'all are gonna need 'em.

It's Heat #3! It's early because I've got a lot of work to do but the other poll will stay open until midday.


The poll will stay open until lunchtime on THURSDAY 21st APRIL GMT. Or so. My lunchtime works out about 4pm GMT at the minute so basically 'when I get to it.'

Extra ticks in this round go to: [livejournal.com profile] lockedintheatti, [livejournal.com profile] hoshuteki, [livejournal.com profile] credoimprobus, [livejournal.com profile] koganbot and [livejournal.com profile] redcommieapples

Marit Larson and Shakira are through on nine and eleven ticks respectively but there's a five-way tie on seven ticks for the other four places in the year's final. Readers, you decide:

[Poll #1731368]

Edit: Frank has reminded me to point out when the closing time for this poll is. Which is lunchtime tomorrow, 19th April GMT. (when there will be a brand new heat for your ticking pleasure)
[identity profile] piratemoggy.livejournal.com
Time for ANOTHER HEAT. Yes I am being a bit slow about this, sorry; work has got very busy suddenly just when I thought their backs were turned.

Through from the last heat are Christina Aguilera with Aint No Other Man on 12 tix, Gnarls Barkley with Crazy on 10, Kelis ft. Too $hort with Bossy and Lil Chris with Checkin It Out both on 8, Ashlee Simpson with Boyfriend on 7 and the Pussycat Dolls/Snoop Dogg with Buttonz on 6. Now, onwards into D-I!

them rules again )

You have until lunchtime GMT, Monday 18th April to vote. Get ticking!

Extra ticks this round go to: [livejournal.com profile] hoshuteki, [livejournal.com profile] askbask, [livejournal.com profile] credoimprobus and [livejournal.com profile] koganbot

Because honestly, this could have been focus-grouped to appeal specifically to the [livejournal.com profile] poptimists demographic:

Brightly bubbly yet sugar-string delicate at the same time; AMAZING stuttering, clattery beat; sweet, shimmering, helium-light soar of a chorus. BLOODY INCREDIBLE. I MAY BE JUST A BIT OBSESSED WITH IT RIGHT NOW.

I'm really loving the entire album (Rush), in fact, so just because, here's a few more gems from it under the cut: )

Right, sorry this was a week delayed- DDoS attacks and real life and all that.

You have SIX TICKS plus a potential BONUS TICKY in the offing for people willing to try new things. As it is now four grillion years since the last poll, I am afraid I am not well-practised enough in archaeology to find out who might deserve them from last time so we are starting with a clean slate on that front.

More on the rules )

You have until Wednesday (13th) lunchtime GMT to vote.

Hello dudes- sorry for not getting the polls up last week, I am working on collecting all the noms and will get "on it" with posting tomorrow hopefully. :)

ETA: as you can imagine, the LJ downtime rather screwed with this plan. Really sorry about this but will probably have to have them start next week now. On the plus side, it'll be a pretty fast schedule after that. Sorry everyone!
[identity profile] katstevens.livejournal.com
Adele's been on top for most of March, with a brief break last week to allow the Lead Pussycat to have a go being #1. Otherwise it's been pretty quiet compared to February!

[Poll #1723702]

* ????

Lower reaches watch: 'Regulate' got to #45 (RIP Nate), 'The Chain' popped in briefly at #81 for the new Formula 1 season, The Strokes' new single missed out on the top 40 and this week Miss 'R!B!' Rebecca Black makes it to #61!

February's poll saw Rihanna's sordid filth get a large proportion of the vote while The Vaccines did not get much love at all. Also two people ticked Noah and The Whale, which means that song is now in my head AGAIN. CHEERS GUYS.
