It's odd, I voted against Jeff's list back when it was crowned champion, but it's the best of these 3

A gets it, but it's hardly decisive.

There are too many songs in all three lists I'm frankly indifferent towards. I don't expect that's such an unusual reaction, but I can't help wondering if it's the result of using the highly-personalised criteria that's necessary for compiling this stuff, or whether the winners were just a little calculating in their attempts to win by playing it so safe that nothing either jumps up and spits in your face or attempts to seduce you.
