SONM - Song of the Month (OCTOBER) - WINNERS ANNOUNCED

Post by Bix » Sat Nov 01, 2014 1:05 pm

This is the best of 'rate my tracks' as decided by us (the best music critics in the gaming world)

With many of us linking to tracks in the 'Rate The Above Track' thread, that either fitted the season or, from one of our favourites, we got through an absolute Andy Record's worth of music.. Much kudos goes to LFF as this is helping to define the forums tastes and inspire thoughts about what to choose next.

What I though it might be cool to do is to vote for our best songs for the month, as voted by us during the first few days of the forum .. then move onwards to display the best at monthly intervals. On the thread one person gets a say , but over here you can either agree or disagree by casting your vote for up to three that you want to win.

So without further ado here are the tracks that received the highest scores from the previous month.


SONM - Songs of the month (November) (to follow)


Maybe choose one that best fits the season, or simply choose your very best one, two or three (from the tracks listed above please! :roll: ) .. either way its entirely up to the person voting, as to how many and which ones. We can then begin to create a nice list below of what the forum think is the best for the month.



I will update this post with the subsequent best tracks as voted for each month .. we will then choose our tracks from here on this OP. I will also notify in the thread when the 'Opening Post' has been updated. Happy voting ! (Remember you can change your vote as many times as you like - Unofficial last date/time for votes will be 11th December - 23:59)

Aah thanks I went by the linked video, I'll get it changed .. I'm getting more informed on all things hip hop (embracing other stuff can only be a good thing I'm sure of it).

Absolutely ! .. kudos for getting two in there.

I should also point out you can edit your vote as many times as you like .. especially if you feel it will help one win that you prefer over something else 8-)

Cheers Ghost .. lovely choices :) but it helps if you could select three from the ones already voted as the highest for October .. or your votes end up being somewhat fruitless. The tracks available to choose are all listed in the opening post 8-)

No problem at all .. the spinning Link makes everything alright :mrgreen:

Actually you've reminded me, I may be changing one of my choices, what with Halloween being at the death of October.

Maybe i missed something (this does happen from time to time lol), but did you really just pop into Rate The Above and choose a bunch of songs you liked for this?

If so, then would it not be better if folk were to be allowed to make specific nominations in future?

I have tried to explain. But to go a little further, when I first came up with the idea I wasn't sure if it would work. I ran it by mod LFF, who owns the rate my track thread and he said it was a very good idea.

Basically its the highest rated tracks of the month, not just random. 1 person has rated the track as excellent .. we can decide whether we agree by voting for our favourite 3 from all of these tracks. So this is the best of rate my tracks as decided by us (the best music critics in the gaming world).

Edit: I've added a line just before the voteable tracks to hopefully make things clearer.

Re: SONM - Song of the Month (OCTOBER) - vote closes 9th Nov

Post by Noodle Link » Fri Nov 07, 2014 10:45 pm

Cool thread idea, my man.

1. Radiohead
2. Busdriver
3. Eels

All my tracks, obviously.

(4. Fleet Foxes
5. Outkast
6. Gang Starr
7. Killer Mike
8. Elliott Smith)

Must add that I'd only really put Motion Lines that high up in this instance. I don't necessarily feel that it's a better track than anything below it.

Cheers Noodle and November is shaping up nicely too.

I should add that repeated tracks although awesome whenever they are heard won't make it into the song of the month choices repeatedly, especially if there's a lot already. I think Rap Music - Killer Mike would be there forever if that was the case 8-)

It's something of a nitpick, but the Eels track is stylised as Last Stop : This Town and the Killer Mike track is R.A.P. Music.
