Amazing! I'm stanning for If Your Girl Only Knew and cursing Rock the Boat (not because of the death but because there were a hundered better songs to release than that).

Re: AALIYAH Singles Rate

How coincidental that I was listening to "One in a Million", "Rock the Boat", and "We Need a Resolution" yesterday. Her music was perfect for chill ass summer days.
 
Re: AALIYAH Singles Rate

Aaliyah is my all time favourite R&B artist.
Excited!

Although Are You That Somebody for the win!

WE NEED A RESOLUTION
THERE IS SO MUCH CONFUSION

Re: AALIYAH Singles Rate

There are half a dozen songs I would be happy to see win. Conversely, if any of them score in the bottom half I will be so disappointed in you lot.

Aaliyah's one of my earliest obsessions in my early teenage re-engagement with music, and I vividly remember going in to Our Price to excitedly buy Back & Forth on cassingle. Her work means a lot to me people - don't fuck this up!
 
Re: AALIYAH Singles Rate

I can only fuck this up by giving too high scores!

This is the first time I've heard of "The Thing I Like", I don't feel like a real fan anymore! It's the only song I don't have from Aaliyah.
 
Re: AALIYAH Singles Rate

I'm gonna have alot of catching up to do, I only know a handful of Aaliyah songs but i worship them.
 
Re: AALIYAH Singles Rate

Was it a conscious decision not to include Enough Said? I know it's controversial but I think it should go in. Also wikipedia says "Are You Feelin' Me?" was released as a UK single to promote Ultimate Aaliyah, though I'm not sure if that's actually true.

Also also, did you consider including her featured singles? (If only for the sake of the godly Up Jumps da Boogie).

Re: AALIYAH Singles Rate

I'm pretending Enough Said Never happened. There is a Are You Feelin' Me promo CD out there, but my opinion is its a sampler and not a single, and I think the phrase "used to promote" is a wild exaggeration (there wasn't any promotion of Ultimate Aaliyah. At all).

I could have included her features, but honestly, they'd feel a bit out of place in an Aaliyah singles rate, I think, as they're not really *her* singles.
 
Re: AALIYAH Singles Rate [VOTING CLOSES 9 MAY!]

Definitely doing this! Even with only 3 1/2 albums to her name, she's one of the all-time greats to me. That voice!

All fair enough, I'll send in my votes soon!
