Wonderful Electric: the Goldfrapp Discography Rate #46-45

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by One Stop Candy Shop, Sep 25, 2017.



  1. Let's take a Time Out From The World
    and Tiptoe - or dive Head First - into a new rate


    Yes Sir, it's up to you
    to Slide In and participate!


    Which song will Become The One, our Number 1?
    You Never Know...



    *cue operatic intro from Utopia*

    What is Goldfrapp?
    Goldfrapp are songwriting duo Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory. Since 2000 they released 7 albums filled with electropop, synthpop, disco, downtempo, future jazz, electroclash, indie-pop, ambient, leftfield, folk and pop goodness. But you probably knew that already, didn't you?

    What do we rate?
    All the albums and all other officially released extra songs*. Not included are the soundtrack they made for the My Summer Of Love, remixes they did for other artists or unofficial stuff. We're not gonna rate different versions of the same song, so say you prefer the radio version of Ride A White Horse over the album version, just rate whatever version you think is the best**. You can always specify your choice in your comments.

    * I made an exception for Sartorius, Little Death and Fondue Knights, three outtakes from Felt Mountain. Their studio versions were never officially released, but they were often performed live. (And they're great!)
    ** Satin Boys, Flaming Chic is also an exception. Yes, it's a remix, but it was released as a single and it's so different from the album version that I think it deserves a separate spot in the rate.


    How do we rate?
    You give each song a score between 0 and 10. Half points are allowed and you can give one song 11 points. You send your scores to me via PM. I'll always reply when I receive something. Besides your scores, feel free to add comments to all or some songs. Why do you love it? Why do you hate it? Have an anecdote? We'd love to know! All comments can be send along with scores (or if time is an issue, you can always send your comments later on).

    The deadline
    You have six weeks to send me your votes, so the deadline is Monday the 6th of November (whatever time zone you're in).

  3. Sounds good, what about including It's Not Over Yet?
     
  4. If only I had time to go on a discovery binge! All the songs I know by them (5 total) are 11 fodders!!

  5. Totally forgot about that one. It has been added.

    Ready for Yellow Halo to destroy everything else.

  7. I remember really enjoying I Wanna Life although not sure I'd like the rest. Will definitely be following even if I don't take part though and see if I can make any new discoveries.

  10. I'd say the chances of anything off Tales Of Us reaching the top 10 are slim. (But please, EVERYBODY send in your votes and prove me wrong!)

    Tales is still a good album though.

  11. If I could pick 10 songs to cut first, they would all be from Tales.

    Can't wait for this one!

  13. I was already planning to vote, but now I clearly must to save certain Tales of Us songs. You guys like "Annabel" at least, right?
     
  14. It's all about "Drew," "Thea" and "Clay."

  15. I know it's a stretch, but any chance we could get the remix of "This is The New Shit" on here? It's practically a new song.
     
  16. Ray

    Ray

    5 candidates for 11.
    10 candidates for 0.
    15 ehhh... I don't have 15 of anything, but I'm going to do my best to vote in this one, let's see if we can get Tales Of Us average below 2.

  17. SO
    MANY
    TENS.
     
  18. I'm not partial to adding it, but if more people want it, I guess it's okay. Let your voices be heard, This Is The New Shit fans!
     
  19. If you said 9 candidates for 0 we'd all think you're Allison, coming in to slag off the entire Head First album.

    I know this isn't technically a Goldfrapp track but I always thought it'd fit nicely in their discography:



    (The Princess and the Warrior soundtrack is pretty great by the way, it also features Skin, Beth Hirsch and Lou Rhodes of Lamb)
