Every year, we usually let a handful of people have their $.02 to post their Top 10 lists of any given variety. And while it’s fun for me to read, it’s not exactly the most fun sitting here and editing 30 Top 10 lists for TV shows, albums, etc. That’s not including the HTML work. So this year, I took a page from the Pitchfork book of year-end lists to come up with a userpoll system. I had a group of 50 people (roughly) surveyed, and about 42 got back to me. These people are various folks in my friend circle, music industry or folks I’ve come across through networking (WWM and AP.net), so on and so forth. That being said, I feel like a lot of these folks allow WWM to influence their choices or something, because I like most of em!
Anyway, hit the jump for the poll, which includes:
- Top 20 Albums
- Top 10 TV Shows
- Top 10 TV Characters (Drama & Comedy)
- Top 5 Sports Teams
- Top 10 Movies
- Top 5 Most Anticipated Movies for 2012
- Best Artist & New Artist
- Most Overrated Artist, Album, TV Show & Movie
So hit the jump for those good times.

First things first. I know there are plenty of you who have submitted user lists to us in the past, and because we’re fine gentleman of the people, we’ve posted them. The good thing about this blog is that it grows every year, and this year is easily our biggest year – so I really didn’t have the heart, time and patience to sift through what was sure to be a hefty list of user submissions. That being said, I’ve sought out a few of my colleagues and closest musical comrades in Texas, Colorado, LA and NYC to compile a somewhat “exclusive list” of user lists.
I’d like to thank all of the submitters for taking time to send em over. I owe you all several hugs and drinks. And by drinks, I mean more posts of support from this here website. I urge all of you to check out this fine group of folks’ respective websites, twitters and works of art.
