My selection of the best electronic songs is going to be different from the rest. Not because I know better or because they have a better ear, but simply because the music is subjective.
Ultimately, we really have to learn to trust our own feelings. Of course, the popularity factor comes into play. If a piece of music (in any genre) wins a lot of listeners, there's probably something right about it.
On the other hand, if no one wants to listen to a song, maybe it could be improved. But at the end of the day, no matter what gloriously delusional praise someone gives you, if a lead just doesn't speak to you, then it just doesn't speak to you.
And that's all there is to it. On the other hand, you can't force yourself to dislike a song. That's when we start talking about "guilty pleasures", as if we should feel bad about enjoying something that others say is not good.
Electronic music in particular gets a bad rap on many sides. Some people say it's not music, as if they have some kind of right to decide what falls into that category. Or you can read about the disappearance of culture or music (whatever that means), with electronics cited as positive proof of this dire situation.
So if you're trying to figure out what the best electronic tracks are, you might want to rethink your approach. Pick a few big names, then browse them with free tools from "similar artists" like Jango.
I use it all the time to discover new music, including a lot of really cool indie artists who don't have the same kind of exposure elsewhere. In the end, it's up to you to decide what is the best music - for you. It's a subjective process anyway. So listen to what you love and never apologize.
(And please don't start discussions in the YouTube comment section about which track is better than another. Nobody really wants to read that, plus there's no way to resolve the argument. It's like arguing that blue is better than red. ).
The best way to find good electronic music is to keep an open mind and open ears. There's enough out there to be sure to uncover hidden gems, as long as you're willing to give new artists a try.
