Wait, did @Sprockrooster give this a 5 or an 8? I just need to know how mad to be.
I gave it an 8. Does that mean we are speaking terms again (also @ohnostalgia)?
Oh nooo... My first fuck up of the rate!! I just consulted my spreadsheet and double checked @Sprockrooster's DM. Looks like I accidentally switched their scores for Alive and Time and this...unfortunately changes some things. Or fortunately for Time...as that would mean it's still in.
Sorry about that folks! Will reveal the fixes tomorrow!
Thanks for the catch @londonrain!
Or I should say later today as it's already past 12. Damn, I can't believe I did that. I knew Alive making it that far didn't seem right...
- Alive moves down (3) spots
- Which means everything from Can I Go Now to Overdrive moves up (1) spot
- Time moves up a few spots, its new position will be revealed when the time comes (TBA)
- Everything else remains the same!
42. 45. Melissa O'Neil - Alive
45. 44. Jennifer Love Hewitt - Can I Go Now
44. 43. Cheyenne Kimball - Hanging On
43. 42. Katy Rose - Overdrive
34. TBA. Chantal Kreviazuk - Time
All posts have been edited to reflect these changes. Next elimination for the true #34 incoming!
Alanis Morissette - Precious Illusions
My Score: 7
Highest: 10 x 4 (@Sprockrooster, @soratami, @Memoria, @Music Is Death)
Lowest: 5 x 1 (@Pineapple) 6 x 1 (@2014)
Precious Illusions was the second single from Alanis' fifth studio album Under Rug Swept. It was released in 2002 and charted at #4 in Canada.
Under Rug Swept was the first album Alanis wrote and produced all by herself. In a track-by-track commentary about the album she explained the meaning behind the song:
"Basically I'm talking about the difference between really being alive and really embracing the reason why I'm here on this earth versus my just being asleep and sleep walking and accepting the status quo and accepting somewhat of a suffering mentality to being here. It really is my responsibility to distinguish the difference between the two and choose which one I want."
@DJHazey (7.5) - Devastatingly lyrics, but I’ve never given it that many spins because the music itself never excited me too much. Its commentary on depression and holding on to love for the wrong reasons, stemming from that depression, are super relatable though.
@berserkboi (8.5) - This somehow became a full blown Alanis favourite, but it’s still a very strong song!
@Memoria (10) - Under Rug Swept was the first album of Alanis' that I ever bought and this song was always my favourite. Haven't heard it in years though, so thank you for the wonderful reminder.
@Sprockrooster (10) - Sprocky, what is your favourite Alanis-track? Well That I Would Be Good, but this is a very close second and I basically swore I would 11 it in the next rate it would be my 11. Well I lied. I added it to my poprockrate, but that was too packed and it lost out. Now I am still not 11’ing it cause there is a song here that deserves the world and my heart. I broke my promise to Alanis and for that I am sorry. Especially as she gave us this stroke of bliss with this track and I want to shout-out the music video which still captivates me.
Precious Illusions leaving before the Simpson tracks is wrong on so many levels I...
Some of y'all don't deserve rights.
Hmm... can we have the original #34 instead please?
Yes, I see your avatar on my screen again.
I’m so happy Time is going to beat more tracks. Maybe I’ll write about why I like it so much when the second time comes around.
Alanis losing a track before the top 30 is disgusting.
Today's elimination is a big one. By far the song to receive the most 10s so far.
Lindsay Lohan - Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father)
My Score: 8
Highest: 10 x 12 (@Sprockrooster, @theincredibleflipper, @DJHazey, @saviodxl, @BubblegumBoy, @unnameable, @pop3blow2, @Crisp X, @Pineapple, @Robsolete, @Memoria, @Music Is Death)
Lowest: 3 x 1 (@soratami) 4 x 1 (@yeRleDanaL)
Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father) was the only single to Lindsay's second and final studio album to date, A Little More Personal (Raw). It was released in 2005 and charted at #57 in the US. Also #7 in Australia, a hit!
The song was written by Lindsay as a letter to her father Michael, who survived a car crash for which he was charged with driving under the influence. An accompanying music video which she directed herself, references her father's alcoholism and alleged domestic abuse.
An interesting fact is that Lindsay actually recorded her vocals for the song in her trailer during the shoot of her movie Herbie: Fully Loaded.
@berserkboi (8.5) - I have grown to enjoy this a lot more over the years!
@Memoria (10) - Sure, it's a bit cliché in places but if anyone other than Lindsay Lohan had released this, it would've got so much more praise. Her performance in the music video truly is heartbreaking.
@livefrommelbs (9.5) - THE DRAMA, MAMA. An underrated moment, emotionally and vocally.
@unnameable (10) - Successfully channeling raw emotion better than most of the entries on this list.
@DJHazey (10) - Now I’ve always had love for Confessions, long before I got into the rest of her discography. Infinitely more mature and candid than anything the other Disney Queens were releasing. Lyrics that can be spun so they apply to anybody’s family matters, certainly in my case too. It’s hard not to listen to this and not feel something deep inside.
@Sprockrooster (10) - The power that this song has literally destroys careers of other women. It is that good. A serious 11-contender for me!
Boo you whores!
Oh COME THE FUCK ON.
The evil is defeated.
Balladphobia won. Yet again.
this is an 11 by the way
Way too used to it to enjoy the original one sadly.
That explains a lot nn
A little bump to get us to the next page!
