Against Me! (please let this win so I don't have to keep nominating every song off this LP) and The B-52s.

I didn't even realize Cannonball was nominated! Immense song. Definitely voting that and one other of some sort.

The Breeders currently above ABBA? Is this some kind of sick joke?
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Not in my world. Cannonball is a good tune.

I nominated the Go-Go's, but The Breeders and The B-52's are just too good .

It's a great record, although I have cleared the dance floor of a very happening party by convincing the dj to play Cannonball.
ABBA all day long for me.

A vote for anything other than DQ is literally insane. It is one of those perfect moments in music where all the stars align and utter magic happens. That drum groove, that bass, that piano, those wonderful vocals. Simply the greatest pop record of all time in my eyes.

I prefer Waterloo and Mamma Mia to Dancing Queen.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

Two absolutely fantastic songs as well. I can't argue with that.

Yep, DQ all the way, would vote for the hi-hat alone.

Yes, the hi-hat is brilliant. The way it opens and closes on certain accents. What a wonderfully constructed record.
