It's A Lot More Nuanced Than That: The Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Song Rate (THE WINNER!)

Discussion in 'TV + Film' started by Lila, Aug 16, 2017.

  1. I was working hard at a New York job, making dough but it made me blue...

    I'm just a girl in love...


    Over 31 episodes, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has given us some truly amazing songs. There's been bops, there's been ballads, there's been show tunes, there's been Darryl solo numbers and now the time has come to rate them all.

    The criteria for judging here is not limited and taking into account the visuals when scoring is more than fine!​

    1. Score every song between 0 and 10. Decimals are perfectly fine but only to one decimal place.
    2. As in all other rates, one song can receive your 11.
    3. Commentary is absolutely encouraged!
    4. Submit your scores and any commentary to me via PM.
    5. Voting closes September 8th.

    Have fun ladies!​

  4. September 8th is perfect, usually I can do a rate and re-listen to what I need to in a few days but I need reminding of a fair few of these and I do not think I will be able to slide them in to my playlists on the way to work.

    My 11 is going to Love Kernels. Are we including the iconic spoken intro?
  5. Never watched the show but I'm here to rep Gettin' Bi xx
  6. Of course! Love Kernels is one of the contenders for my 11 too.
  7. I'll try and do this. Still got about 4 other rates to finish first.

  8. You Stupid (stupid) Bitch needs to sweep.

    This reminds me that I still haven't finished Season 2 and this is the motivation I need.

  9. Dream Ghost for runner up!

  10. Doing my scores today and the entire first half of season one's music is incredibly solid. I'd already assumed it was going to dominate but there are some real contenders I hadn't given much thought to before.

    I love this show so much I feel I'm going to hardly go below a 7 (or 8).
    Even the songs that aren't as strong usually had at least a few great lines in them..

    Can the two themes be included as well?

    Finished my first round of rating.

    Season 1: 7.6 average
    Season 2: 7.3 average

    Scores below 6: 3.
    10s: 5 (still deciding which one of those will become the 11 though)

    Got a feeling I'll be voting very differently than some of you.
    Might be a bit more harsh tomorrow cause being all kind with 6s and 7s is probably gonna have little impact on the results.

    Warning for anyone using Spotify to vote: demo versions are up there that aren't tagged as such. Though if you're not familiar with the material yet you have to witness it all with its videos for sure!

  16. I counted Where is the Rock? as a reprise of Textmergency which is why I didn't include it. Having A Few People Over and Makey Makeover I went back and forth on because while I like them, there isn't really much to them? The former, in particular, is hilarious and I love it but it's largely instrumental. I didn't include the themes because they're both so short and I wasn't sure how they'd stand up to the rest of the full length songs. If people feel strongly enough about any of those I'll happily add them though!

    Period Sex is an oversight on my part since I used the episode list on Wikipedia to make the list and it isn't included there. I've now added it.

    Where Is The Rock is a mini-song but I feel it is an actual song, don't see any callbacks to Textmergency apart from the people singing it and its genre.
    Having A Few People Over definitely has very little lyrics, but that's the EDM genre its going for!

    Can live without that and Makey Makeover (they just popped up when I shuffled the soundtracks on Spotify and I'm a completist). Both themes seem more essential to me. They might have a slight advantage of being played on every episode but they definitely feel very much like Crazy Ex-Girlfriend songs.
  18. I've now edited the first post to include the two theme songs, but I think I'm going to leave it as it is otherwise.

    I haven't finished my scores completely but I've given 9 10s overall. There's a few of those that could end up being my 11 though and I don't know which yet.

    Great, will finish my list soon!
    This rating has reminded me how weak I am for Greg.

    Hope the countdown won't be too rushed, will love discussing all of these great songs/videos one at a time!
