    Oh, were you expecting extra? Well Love's Got A Hold On My Heart and I'll ensure to give you the BEST so the other chart threads are Better Best Forgotten, and the Last Thing On My Mind is to let y'all down. It'll surely be a Tragedy if you don't partake this month, what with the array of new releases we've had (and are due to have). So don't be Scared Of The Dark!

    This is the Summer Of Love with Lana's new opus due shortly, while Ke$ha is hitting us all in the It's The Way You Make Me Feels - but only Here And Now can you make sure your faves Stomp the rest of the competition. Not One For Sorrow, I will not accept any excuses and I'll go a Deeper Shade Of Blue (....) if you even TRY IT.

    Before starting a Chain Reaction, here's the rules;


    1. Send a chart ranked #1 to #10 for songs and #1 to #10 for albums in a PM to @2014 . To keep with @send photo's previously introduced twist, due to all the constant great releases this month and my thirst for power I have adjusted the rules to include up to 10 albums. Scoring will work as #1 gets 5 points, #2 gets 4.5, etc. so it doesn't skew results in relation to past charts. If you want to vote for only songs that's fine. If you only want to vote for 5 albums that's fine but they will be scored normally without the half point increments.

    2. The albums can be full length, EP, compilations and even unreleased albums

    3. The songs can be singles, album tracks, demos, or anything you want.

    4. The songs and albums can be released whenever, but releases within the past 6 months or so have the best chance to make a chart.

    5. The charts should be what you've been listening to in the past month.

    6. There needs to be some sort of Steps inclusion

    7. Your #1 ranked song gets 10 points and your #1 ranked album gets 5.

    8. The total points earned builds the chart.

    9. Ties are broken by number of voters, then by quality of votes received, and are left as a tie if we still can't break parity.

    10. You can have whatever commentary you'd like with your votes.

    11. The top five songs make next year's rate.

    (I may or may not be joking about #6, but it's Better The Devil You Know...)

    So, Say You'll Be Mine and enter your charts (deadline Sunday 30th July) and You'll Be Sorry if you don't!

  5. I might have more later, but I need to get this out now:

    What a fucking snatch! I am literally obsessed since it's release! Things I love about the songs:
    - That sassy opening verse
    - The Ryan Tedder-esque but brilliant buildup
    - THAT pre-chorus leading up to that exploding chorus

    The whole album is brilliant and I am hoping she can pull a SZA and be top 3!

  9. I have a feeling I'll be reporting a similar crime when @2014 has used them for promo and then his name is suspiciously absent from their votes!
  10. A&E


    I don't get any of the references in the opening post... *Lil Mama voice* and I'm happy.

    I'll surely post more FYCs later on, but off the top of my head this is one of my most listened tracks recently:

    it was on soundcloud like last week but not anymore smh
