  2. Welcome to the Belinda Carlisle (almost) discography rate!

    We will be rating all of Belegenda's English-language albums along with some extras (B-sides, soundtrack/compilation entries, reissue bonus tracks, non-album singles). You probably know the routine by now, but here are the rules:
    • Rate everything from 0 to 10, one 11, you know the drill. PM your votes to me, @VivaForever, the Queen of the Internet.
    • I don't expect this to be a problem in this rate, but don't troll and make me throw out your votes.
    • Commentary is, of course, welcomed.
    • When multiple versions of a song exist (e.g., album mix vs. single mix vs. remix), rate the version you know best.
    • Giving Heaven Is a Place on Earth lower than a 10 is homophobia and will be reported to the authorities.
    The Fan Demanded Deadline is Friday, April 12 at 11:59pm EST.

    Good luck, and don't fuck it up.

  10. It had better.
     
  11. Oh my God fuck YES will I be playing. She has so many 10s it's unreal. I've been caning Real lately.
     
  12. Just give everything on Live Your Life Be Free a 10 from me and we'll start from there…..
     
  13. You know I'm doing this.

  15. Where's Voila? I've never heard it, am told it's terrible.
     
  16. I am not entirely sure if I will be doing this. Can't say I was swept with her in the 1989 rate; that honour went to Taylor Dane. Let me do some pre-listening.
     
  17. Notable by its absence, because yes, it's terrible. (See also Wilder Shores.) I stuck I Still Love Him (the English version of Pourtant tu m'aimes, and ironically the album's only single) in the extras.

  18. @VivaForever my darling, I wanted to participate and support but there are a few too many discoveries for me to handle along with the other rates & song contests I am doing - sorry! I'll come along and give you likes though, promise!
