Acclaimed Music Top 50 Songs & Albums of 2010 (aggregated charts)

Better consumed watching The Big Picture 2010 in Pictures 


What:
When I started the Spotify series of end of 2010 lists, I also started making an aggregated chart of albums and songs. A very simple one: taking the top50 positions of each chart and assigning 50 points to #1, 49 points to #2, ecc. ecc. Just to have a final chart to publish the last day of the year. Then I discovered that - as it always happens on Internet - someone else was doing the same, but far more better than me. Acclaimed Music is not only a great statistics site where you can find aggregated charts of the top 3000 albums and songs of all time. Since 2007, they also make aggregated end-of-the-year charts, mixing several lists taken from magazines, websites and other sources through the world. They even differentiate their charts on geographical basis (you can see who is number one in USA, UK or rest of the world) and tell you when a song has actually being published in 2009. Definitely, a better work than mine. So, to properly celebrate the last day of 2010 I decided to use their charts, as they are evolving on the website's forum. These are still not definitive and - even if I won't make any other eoy2010 playlist - I promise to update them when Acclaimed publishes the definitive ones. Anyway, they are already built on dozens of different sources. If you wanna a good, comprehensive, critics-friendly summary of 2010 in music, these should work. Enjoy, say bye to 2010 and hello to 2011. :o)
