2014 Festive Fifty Shortlist!

Here's an email I sent yesterday. I think you'll find it VERY interesting :)

Alright everyone! Here's the shortlist. We're 1/3 of the way there and the steps only get easier!
Here's what's next:
1. From the list below, pick your 10 favorite songs
2. Arrange them in order from 1-10 with 1 being your most favorite.
3. If you choose to, you can give a negative vote to any one song.
4. Share the list! Get more people to vote! Facebook! Blog! Twitter! Tumblr!

Please do all of the above by midnight Pacific on 11/25 (3 am 11/25 Eastern, 8 am 25/11 in the UK)
Also, yes, there are 106 choices. And yes, Bleachers has three songs to choose from. There was a tie, so I just included both of the songs in the tie.
