  Since all six of the regulars have submitted their rankings for this round, and thus today will likely be a quiet day on this board, I thought I might list my fifteen "I Can't Believe They Weren't Eligible for any Top 100" choices. I don't want to convey that I'm unhappy with the direction these lists went, because I think on the whole we've been doing a good job. But here's the ones whose omission stands out to me:

-The Shirelles: Will You Love Me Tomorrow (1960)
-The Byrds: Turn, Turn, Turn (1965)
-Elton John: Tiny Dancer (1971)
-Carole King: I Feel the Earth Move (1971)

-The Beatles: I Want to Hold Your Hand (1963)
-Gloria Gaynor: I Will Survive (1978)

About Sade, Marissa wrote:
  I enjoy Sade's music and I wouldn't mind seeing them nominated at some point. Might have to wait a bit, though.

On another note, anybody who thinks that Janet Jackson rode her brother's
coattails doesn't know much about her or even his career. Janet completely eclipsed her brother's shadow and even outshined his success
for over a decade. The Jackson last name got her that first record deal and those first two albums she released were only moderately successful. Similar story with all of the other Jackson siblings, barring some solo success for Jermaine.

Janet fired her father as manager and linked up with Jam & Lewis and the rest was history.

And for the record, it was Michael Jackson that begged Janet Jackson to duet with him post-Rhythm Nation for many years. She wanted nothing to do with it. She only conceded for "Scream" because that's when he was at his lowest point in scandal. Janet stepped up nicely for her big brother, if you ask me.

To deny Janet's impact to the world of pop, R&B and dance music is unfair and a tad ridiculous.

Fingers crossed for Sade down the line, though.

Pass the Mic: 15 Big Hits Not Sung by the Lead Singer
"Beth," "Sister Christian" and more smashes performed by unlikely vocalists

The Miracles, "Love Machine Pt. 1" (1976)

The Miracles may seem to be synonymous with Smokey Robinson, but after the lead singer left the group, they recorded a concept album called City of Angels about a small-town couple who travel to L.A. to become stars. After the pair make it, "Love Machine" is how the boyfriend describes himself (over a supple disco beat). With Billy Griffin holding down lead vocals, the single hit Number One and spent 28 weeks on the Hot 100 — more than any other Miracles song.

About Sade, Philip wrote:
  Interesting postulation. Kind of like what Stevie Ray Vaughan did for the blues? To that end, there's a similarity, since it was never uncool to like jazz or blues. It just wasn't always popular. To that end, I would say that's where the similarity ends. SRV brought a blues and blues-rock revival to the mainstream, influence many in his wake. I don't think you can say the same for Sade. Jazz-fusion was already being led by the hand by the likes of Miles and Herbie. Sade was kind of an off-shoot of that which stagnated as a style. It's like a private road off a main stretch: it may be well-maintained, have a nice neighborhood in it with nice houses, may offer some lovely views... but as a road, doesn't really anywhere. That's kind of how I feel about Sade's music.

  The rap that I would support would be few, but like others, I do believe it has a place in the Hall. From Darren's list:

DJ Kool Herc
P Diddy (Puff Daddy)
Snoop Dogg

I guess I would like a little more time on a few others to see how their careers continue:
Nas
Lil Wayne
50 Cent

About Sun Kil Moon, Paul in KY wrote:
  saw this band at this year's Forecastle. They played on the smaller Port Stage. Was not that impressed with them. Lead singer seems like a bit of a dick. He complained about bleedover from the main stage, heat, etc. Music was OK. Probably would never see them outside of a festival.

  Saw this band at Forecastle 2014. Excellent act out of Brooklyn. Is fronted by 2 women who wear identical 60s style clothes (think Christmas 68 at Liberace's house & that was the getup they were wearing). really nice set, soaring harmonies. Recommend that you see them sometime.

About Slint, Paul in KY wrote:
  Saw Slint perform in their hometown at Forecastle 2014. Original lineup. Of course they played all their songs (cause they only have 15 or so). Crowd enjoyed them better than I did. Very mopey band, lot of lyrics are spoken and/or mumbled. Least I saw them. Will be interesting to see if they put out any new music.
