The Official Manchester Orchestra LJ Community
so, i did this in brand_new acouple months back and i think it went over fairly well (see the results here). so, i figured i'd try here as well. maybe get this community moving again.|
behind the cut is a list of manchester orchestra's songs. it is your (and my) job to rank them. i will compile all of the rankings into a spread sheet and make a list of the best songs by manchester orchestra. there is one rule: only studio recorded songs starting with "i'm like a virgin losing a child". i feel like the earlier albums do not have enough production value and, honestly, i never really listened nor liked them.
( the song list Collapse )
for those interested, would you like it if i added the two right away, great captain! albums? or should i just do a separate rankings for those songs? or just not do it at all?
the main problem with the list i did for the brand new community was only twenty people participated. this wasn't a very good data set. the biggest problem people had was just the sheer number of songs they had to rank. they found it too daunting. this list is almost half of that, so i hope that curbs the problem. anyway, before i start to work on this, i would like to know how many of you would actually participate? i found the results for the brand new one fascinating, so i really hope a good number of you want to do this. please, just set aside an hour or two and compile your list. A LOT of people unconstructively criticized the brand new one who didn't even bother to submit a list and i found this to be very annoying.
so, anyways, comment here if you are interested in participating in this idea and you can even start your rankings. if i get enough responses, i'll make another post telling everyone where to submit their lists and the amount of time i will give all of you. and i'll say it again, PLEASE PARTICIPATE!
