CHRIStine and the Queens RATE [#6]

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by NecessaryVoodoo, Feb 3, 2019.

  1. "The next song is about a feeling I've been having since I was very young and I know I'm not the only one. A feeling of not really fitting. Trying to fit in desperately but something isn't working. I'm just too awkward. I'm trying really hard but you know... everything is so straight. And I just feel a bit different. I feel a bit... Tilted".

    intro


    Queerly beloved, we are gathered here today to celebrate the collected works (so far) of the French artist known variously as Héloïse Letissier, Christine and the Queens and more recently Chris. In the space of a few short years Chris has gone from Francophone pop sensation to world-conquering force of nature, winning audiences all over the globe with her innate charisma, kinetic live performances and sparkling brand of synth-pop.

    So allez! Let's get to it!

    how to rate

    As you are probably already aware a lot of the songs here have been recorded in both French and English, so where there's a choice I leave it up to you to decide which versions are the ones you're rating. I know there are people in both camps so I'm not going to deprive one group, when the people who choose to solely listen to the English versions are already doing that to themselves anyway oop.

    Listen to each song and rate it between 0-10 where 0 is merde and 10 incroyable. You are allowed to award one 11 to your chanson préféré of the whole rate, so choose wisely. Decimals are allowed if you're that kind of girl. Feel free to use the whole scoring spectrum but extreme scores will often get called out by other voters, so be prepared to defend yourself dddd.

    Commentary isn't mandatory, but always makes elimination write ups more fun (for me and for you). At the very least a few words about the song you gave your 11 to would be highly appreciated.

    Once you've finished scoring, send them to me in a PM. Commentary can be added at any time during the voting period.

    wHy HaVeN't YoU iNcLuDeD "..."??!1?!

    I've decided not to include any songs released that were just cover versions (hi, MJ's Who Is It from the Miséricorde EP, M*roon 5's What Lovers Do on the Live Lounge 2018 compilation). Paradis perdus is a different kettle of fish. Given the amount of stunning live cover versions Chris has put down over the years, there will be plenty of time between harassing you all for votes to put together a few posts spotlighting these.

    Any other omissions are probably just oversights on my part, so just let me know if there are any.

    dO i HaVe To RaTe ThE eXtRaS?

    Yes you do. There are only 10. I know most of them are solely YouTube exclusives but there were 46 extras in my last rate so I'm sure you'll cope.

    voting period

    Voting will be open until 11:59pm GMT Monday 18th March. The song eliminations will then start shortly afterwards.

    oh my gósh yath!
     
  8. Keep harassing me until I vote please.
     
  9. This song list seems very manageable- count me in!
     
  10. I guess being featured in three rates at the same time is some compensation for being completely snubbed in the PJ Grammys. I'll definitely participate!
     
  11. Je suis ici and anybody that does not acknowledge the brilliance that is iT...
    [​IMG]
     
  12. Loving this rate.
    Loving that I've already scored one of the albums completely.
    Loving how familiar that froot is in your opening.
    [​IMG]
    But actually, all in jest and hoping to squeeze this in!
     
  13. This is very exciting, I've been meaning to extend my listening beyond the (excellent) singles for ages, so this is the perfect opportunity!

  15. Okay, it's not because it's one of my mother tongues, but I'd strongly suggest y'all listen to the French versions of each song, because... Well, let's repeat sweety @NecessaryVoodoo's delicious, simmering tea...

  16. Definitely true except for "5 dols" and "Half Ladies".

  17. Intranquillité for top 2, si vous plait
     
  18. D'accord, there's a couple of late additions to the extras category that I missed (ty @A&E). So you've now got another track by The Name and one by Twinsmatic to rate. The easy PM list has also been updated with them too.

    Also Amazoniaque is a cover and I didn't realise oops, but I'm leaving it in because it's my rate.
