    I suppose I really decided to jump in the deep end with my first rate, huh? Welcome everyone to the ARIANA GRANDE RATE!

    Seventeen years old. Parents recently separated. A young girl took comfort in watching Victorious all the way through for the first time in her new bedroom in a new house that her father would never live in. On the screen was a tiny redhead saying the most ridiculous lines and (when they let her) singing everyone else off the stage. Who was she?

    Ariana fucking Grande!

    There was something about her though I couldn’t put my finger on what. Perhaps I wanted to be her. Perhaps I saw myself in her. Whatever it was, I fell into a hole and devoured every single YouTube video, learnt all the words to the songs she sang on Victorious, listened to whatever scraps of music she’d released or teased. Put Your Hearts Up was far from an outstanding song, but it was hers and I loved the heck out of it. I laminated my stan card a million times over the day The Way was released and listened to nothing else for weeks. Over the years I have become known for being an Ariana Grande fan. The owner of my local gay bar called me Ariana Grande for a solid year because every time I came in I walk right up to the Choose Your Music station and put her music on. I auditioned for performing arts school with Tattooed Heart. I defended her (and myself) to every person who rolled their eyes and made fun of my taste in music just because I said my favourite artist was Ari. I've owned her perfumes, lipsticks, merch, albums and in 2017 I saw her live on her Dangerous Woman tour (when she finally came to NZ).

    I suppose you might say my obsessive fandom has died down since then. Those rose tinted glasses came off as I got older and realised that my idol wasn't perfect. I've voiced criticisms of some of her actions, cringed at times and stopped keeping track of everything she does. However, Ariana will always be close to my heart. I've grown as a person and musician along with her music, and I'm so grateful for that. The stan inside me will never die I suppose and I think I'm okay with that.

    ANYWAY, let's get to the good shit.

    RULES:
    1. Listen and rate each song on this list on a scale of 0-10. There is no limit on 0 scores. HOWEVER, any score of 0 must be accompanied by commentary. A few words to a sentence will do, or you can go off on a rant. Whichever works for me.
    2. You can give ONE song your ultimate score of 11. Choose wisely.
    3. You're welcome to use decimals of .25, .5 & .75 if you'd like you're scoring to be more precise.
    4. Commentary is not required (except for any 0s, as stated above) but highly encouraged. I love reading everyones thoughts. Whether it's one line or a mini essay, it's all welcome.
    5. Send your scores to me via PM by Sunday, March 15th. I'm sure that's sufficient enough time. If it comes down to it though, I'm perfectly willing to arrange an extension for those who need it. Life happens.

  2. RESERVED ONCE MORE

    You can post now
     
  3. YASSSSSSS LET'S DO THIS!
     
  4. Posting to express interest but also so you can tag/drag my ass if I don't have my rates in by the time it comes to tag people near the end of the voting period.
     
  5. Me copy pasting my scores from the last rate and only re-listening to the new additions.
    [​IMG]

    Actually on second thought... Me bumping up my scores for all the songs that got done dirty in the last rate.
    [​IMG]
     
  6. YAAAASSSSSS IT'S FINALLY HAPPENINGGGG

    Good to know. You're on my hit list.

    I mean.....a fair mood.
     
  7. Of course, as this is my first rate, things are bound to go wrong/not as smoothly as I hope. Any support, help and advice from you guys is always welcome. My inbox is open, I'll be constantly in this thread. I'm really excited to do this with you.

    Also I'm well aware of the capitalisation issues with some of the graphics. I'm on it and am experiencing some technical difficulties in the process.
     
  8. It lowkey doesn't look that bad and kinda fits dddd.
     
  9. I appreciate you this but I FIXED IT YAY!

  11. I’m definitely doing this!

  12. The first three songs have me emotional with all the nostalgia. Honeymoon Avenue, Baby I, and Right There... a much simpler time.
     
  13. Yay! Happy to have you!

    It takes me back to my last year of high school. It's a nostalgic kick in the gut.

  14. My draft 'to tag' list is very VERY long. I'll get to tagging after my girlfriend and I go grocery shopping. If you have anyone you think would be interested, feel free to tag them in here xx
     
  15. Definitely here for this!

  17. Thank you for being here and also for making my tag list shorter. You're the real ones.

    Also poor Yours Truly flopping in the poll. Do better.

  18. I need people that when they rate Touch It to listen to this version too/instead.



    The final fantasy remix has probably one of the best intro's of all time. That adlib to start the song is literally this:
