A comment was made that a song should be at least 10 years old before it is inducted since it is uncertain whether its popularity will survive with the passage of time. Good point since, kinda like J-Pop, some anime songs have a short shelf life - they're instantly catchy but rarely stick with you after the anime ended. On the other hand, it kinda defeats the "greatest of ALL TIME" theme of this thread if recent songs should be denied consideration. This thread was put up for the new fans of anime music. What better way to let them get acquainted to anime music than to give them a mix of the greatest of the new and the old anime songs. When the time comes when I'll rank the 1,000 greatest songs of all time (probably after the 100th week) I'll rank them according to their current relevance. Maybe if I'm fortunate enough to rank them again 10 years from now their ranks from the last list would most certainly be different. That's what polls and lists do, they rank importance on that point in time when they were conducted. I don't view them as definitive or set in stone but I see them as a good guide on music appreciation.
