Something I only found last night. Bob Dylan is responsible for this song that has been used in the recent Target commercials

I'm voting for my personal musical preferences rather than what the artist has achieved.

If we wanted a result based on artist achievement, this wouldn't be run as an opinionated poll, we'd instead have matt scouring over stats of how many #1 hits each artist had and how long they were #1 for etc.
At least this result will show the collective GH's music tastes (or the 10 people who are voting in it at least)
Would have won Boogs - 2016, 2017, 2018

thats how i'm voting too. its when there are 2 artists against each other that i don't particularly listen to that i base it on my interpretation of their achievements
