The Village Voice's Annual Pazz And Jop Poll Is Now Up And Running

Earlier this month, we unveiled our Dallas Observer contributors' top albums and, in some cases, top singles of the year, as submitted to the annual Pazz & Jop poll conducted by our sister paper in NYC (in some cases, to the best of our recollections).

Well, now the full results of those submissions are up and ready for your perusal. Included in the package...

Also, since, we're on the topic, let's just bring it up: Yes, we all know that M.I.A.'s "Paper Planes" was released in 2007, but as this essay from my colleague Rob Harvilla at the Voice explains, its cultural impact undoubtedly came in '08, with its usage in Pineapple Express (sad, but true).

Anyway, have fun messing around on the poll's site--but be warned, it's kinda addicting. For instance, wanna see Blender writer and constant VH1 talking head Rob Sheffield's list? Go for it.
