Preliminary Pazz & Jop Singles Agony

It's almost December, which means it's time for me to start going into agony over my Pazz & Jop singles list. I narrowed this down to fifty, any one of which is good enough for my top ten.

How I whittled my list down to only 50 (stuff that I'd include in my top 50 if I could convince myself it was eligible; if any of you have info as to when these were released, please let me know):

-Mahshar "Vase Chi" [don't know the year it came out; if eligible it could well make my top ten]
-Girl Authority "Hollaback Girl" [don't think it was a single; I could claim it acts like one, but not enough people have paid it attention]
-Ashlee Simpson "L.O.V.E." [yes, it had as much impact this year as last, but I already went through the pain of reluctantly keeping it off my top ten last year and I don't want to go through that again]
-Lida "Bito Nemikhandam" [don't know the year it came out]
-DJ BC (Phillip Glass Vs. Dizzee Rascal) "Stand Up And Dance" [think it came out in 2005 or earlier]
-Jena Kraus "Both Dads R Dead Dogs" [it was recorded a decade ago, was unreleased, original tape was lost, was posted on her MySpace page in a low-quality dupe but she hasn't kept it there; if I thought it was going to be in my top ten I'd count it, but it's probably in the thirties]
-Benyamin "Mesl-e To" [don't know what year it came out]
-Mohsen Yegane "Atish Pare" [don't know what year it came out]
