I Got New Rates I Count 'Em: 2017 Number 1's Rate (WINNER)

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by Petty Mayonnaise, Jan 8, 2018.

  1. 'Maria Maria' is not fun. You hear a bit of that song and you're like, next. For the longest time I had no idea Rihanna was even on it and I could've sworn Bryson Tiller was a country singer or something.

  3. My comment was:
    DJ Khaled - Wild Thoughts feat. Rihanna and Bryson Tiller – 3.5 – Can’t believe Rihanna is involved in this. What a dent in her otherwise fairly stellar singles run!

  4. An appropriate segue though

    Calvin Harris - Feels (feat. Katy Perry, Pharrell, and Big Sean(

    Highest Scores:
    11 x 3 (@Serg. @HarryEzra @iheartpoptarts) 10 x 6 (@ufint @Rem @CorgiCorgiCorgi @Furball @Lost In Japan. @LA Hallucinations)
    Lowest Scores: 0 x 1 (@berserkboi)
    My Score: 6.5

    If one of the songs from Calvin's album had to smash, why couldn't it be Skrt On Me (BOP!) or that one with Ariana? Feels has always just felt so...limp. It just never quite grooves the way it should, and the Pharrell feature is just...why? Katy feels underused as well, though her bit is the clear highlight of the song and despite my decidedly meh feelings toward the song, "don't be afraid to catch feels" gets lodged in my head at least one day a month. At least something from this era was a smash, I guess.

  5. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  6. I knew it wouldn't last! Bop though.

    Okay, Camila to wreck all your faves.

    (I know it'll be Dua but let me have my fun mmmkay.)
  7. TOP 5





  8. Yippee!
    Calvin Harris - Feels feat. Pharrell, Katy Perry and Big Sean – 0 – I have hated this shit all year, my first zero in a rate, well done!
  9. Wild Thoughts is not the one.
    I never liked Maria Maria when it came out and was played to death, and the addition of Rihanna and Bryson’s vocals and DJ Khaled’s shouting has not helped.

    At least Feels is a bop.
    Not the best thing any of these artists have done, but it’ll do.

    As for the Bruno song,
    I’m amazed that this is a multiple-Grammy-winning song when it’s so generic. It’s a decent enough groove but the lyrics are subpar and there’s nothing particularly new or groundbreaking about it.
  10. I said:
    Bruno Mars - That's What I Like - 0
    I've never liked Bruno Mars, and this song does nothing to change my mind. From what I understand, he's got lots of money and he's proposing to give some to a call girl? Can you understand now why I hate it?

    DJ Khaled - Wild Thoughts feat. Rihanna and Bryson Tiller - 0
    Well, this went on for about three minutes and 30 seconds more than it had to.

    Calvin Harris - Feels feat. Pharrell, Katy Perry and Big Sean - 2
    None of these points go to pharrell williams. I think I'll just point that out. His bits are terrible. Perry's parts are fine, because they're very limited. If there was more of her, the song may slip down the scale towards zero territory.
  11. 5. Symphony
    4. Bodak Yellow
    3. New Rules
    2. Havana (feat. Young Thug)
    1. Humble
  12. 5. Cacophony
    4. Havana
    3. Bodak Yellow
    2. HUMBLE.
    1. New Rules
  13. I have an 8, a 2, two 0s and my 11 remaining.

    This should be interesting.

  14. The fact I know your 11 and Humble could have ended up with a 2 or 0 is perhaps very painful.

    Then again I wasn't very nice for your 11.

  15. I have two eights,
    a five,
    a four,
    and one zero remaining.
  16. So my average for the top five in a rate is actually lower than yours?

    This is a new experience.

  17. Well, with a 4.2 it cannot be that much of a surprise?

  18. What's your average for the whole rate?

  19. In a rate with @Empty Shoebox in it?

  20. I have a 4.5 (originally a 0.5), 6, 8, 8.5 & my 11. My 11 is clearly going next based on those comments. Still my lowest average top 5 ever by a long shot!
