Well what to say...
First I'm very glad my favourite song ended up 1st ! Congratulations blue-nocture, it's really amazing !
For some reason I throught the 3 "cat" songs were from the same author, and no they're not ! Because "a song for my cat" is almost just as good (my second favourite) ! I guess it's just many people had the idea to fast up voice samples to do meows, and then coincidence that multiple songs had "cat" in their title.
Then it's pretty incredible how scores differs form one voter to the other. "Way out - no way" one another I put in the top of my songs (at first I rated it lower, then I figured it had a good feeling to it and moved it up), but other people put really bad rating ot it. The other way arround is true, there is songs that I found irritating and put them a <20 scores, couldn't listen the
m without turning the volume down, and other people who scored them 80+ !
Then to be honnest I'm quite disappointed to be only 26th... well one could say I'm the best of the worst half. I read the comments about my song, and they were constructive to me. I'll read other people's comments to other people's song if I feel like doing it (this quickly makes a lot of stuff to read !).
Then a second thing I'll add is that I'm glad it's not the same guy or the same few guys who got the top 10 with multiple entries. When I figured out that people entered about 10 entries, I find that was cheating. If they were just way better than other people (which wasn't the case, but it might have been), then any guy could have the first 5 places to himself, and that would be really unfair ! Thanks god that didn't happen.
Anyway I had A LOT OF FUN with this contest, both when composing my song and when listening, and rating other people's.
Amazing results, I was actually aiming for bottom 10, but my entries get exactly the opposite of that. (What is wrong with your ears!?!?!! )
What are you talking about ? Your songs are great. And I love how you reproduced the "star" sound effect from the NES Game "Gimmick" in "I sneak up and and hitcha the crotch". Was it intentional ?
EDIT: I seriously regret not understanding WorldJ until just now. Bravo.
Well what is it ? I probably didn't understand, as I give that song the minimal note, as it sounded horrible to me. I thought it was recorded with a lagging computer or something.
To think my voting skew was harsh, I'm kind of glad I'm not the harshest of the lot. xD
Apparently the harshest is Anthony Morgan, followed by smh, and me. I too was afraid to be harsh at first, but then I told myself I had to put bad notes on songs I didnt' like to make the good notes of songs I liked shine better. Here is it how I rated them basically :
1-19 : Very bad songs, irritating to listen
20-29 : Iritating to listen but with a few merits here and there
30-39 : Annoying songs but that are ok
40-59 : Average songs that aren't horrible but aren't exiting either
60-79 : Songs that sounded ok but were abit lacking, or had a few annoying instruments
80-89 : Good songs
90-100 : Great/Amazing songs.
I did 3 pass to *all* songs, one in alphabetical order, one in best->worst order (order from the first pass) and one in worst -> best order (from the second pass). I significantly changed the rating of a few songs on both additional passes, so I guess it was worth it.
