    SCORE: 6.906


    2015 PLACEMENT: DOWN 11 - 134 of 210 (6.628)
    HIGHEST SCORE: 10 x 3 (@eatyourself @Andy French @paperboyfriendd)
    LOWEST SCORE: 2 x 1 (@Aester)
    MY SCORE: 6.5/10

    Another track that seems to have fallen under the radar! This one's cute; it does a far better job of embodying that shabby, funky charm that makes the debut so electric to this day than previous elimination "I Know It", and it's ridiculously catchy. "U BETTA THINKA ME!! *SYNTH SQUIGGLE*" pops into my head around every fourth day of my life, even when I'm not writing thousands of words a day on Madonna. Queen of writing killer hooks all by herself when she barely even had the experience! The sax solo is also just a wonderful bit of ridiculousness that helps break up the track too. Considering how... overly long songs on the album can sometimes feel, it's a great touch that lets it remain dynamic. It's funny to think that even back then, the spirit and lyrical content of these songs would go on to inform how she approached pop music for a very long time. Like, yas, you better think of her.

    (Can you tell I don't have much to say about this track?)​

  3. Oh thank god I wasn't the only ten.

    Still...why was I one of only three tens? Tasteless ass hoes. At least it's top 150 (I have a sinking feeling I'm going to be saying this a lot, dd)

  4. "Think of Me" is my least favourite song from the debut album - just acceptable and plain filler. Bye!

  5. Noooo! I knew it was coming, but still... uh.
     
  6. It’s a basic catchy bop? Surely it at least deserves a 7??

    I honestly don’t understand you all. You should think of your TASTE LEVELS maybe.
     
  7. As it was the b side of the original release of Holiday it was the second song of hers I heard so it has a special place in my heart.

  8. It was increasingly out of its depth. Perfectly fine bop but it’s the correct and only choice to leave at this point from it’s parent album, hopefully followed soon by Physical Attraction

  9. I agreed until reading the small text. "Physical Attraction" is my favourite remaining track from that album and literally the only song that justifies its length. I really hope it's not the next one to leave from it.

  10. She sounds terrible on "Think of Me," and the song doesn't really go anywhere yet still manages to last five minutes.

  11. My "lowest" remaining scores are classic hits. I better buckle up because I like pretty much everything left.

  12. FUCK OFF MASTERPIECE.
     
  13. I overscored Beat Goes On.

    Like a lot of early M songs, I have a soft spot for Think Of Me. It's just cute '80s pop fluff. There's nothing to it, but it's harmless fun.

    I was in a hurry earlier and while my dismissive post for "Beat Goes On" does more or less sum up my thoughts on the matter, I will say that the middle-eight is great.

    This will be my last post about "Beat Goes On".

    This has been a bad day for this wild little rate. I shouldn't be losing 8+ scores when that American Fucking Pie cover is still here. Or any of the remaining Evita tracks for that matter.
     
  16. Think of Me's synth-line reminds me of Don't You Want Me by The Human League. It's a cute bop, I like it.
     
  17. Think of Me is a fucking BOP. I’m actually really pissed off about this elimination. Not even a 7 average???

    Masterpiece should’ve left a good 40 spots ago... why is it still here? Did ya’ll throw high scores towards it simply because of her Golden Globes win over Elton John?

  18. I missed my 11 being eliminated, mess. But actually happy it probably helped the song... somehow. I knew that "The Look Of Love" would be overlooked and get a little lost in the shuffle. (Glad you saw the light @Maki ). Also a bit iconic that from all my possible 11s, I really went with the one who got chopped first nn.
     
  19. Future was my biggest loss so far, I gave it a 9.5.

  20. I can't say I'm particularly gutted about Beat Goes On leaving as it's probably about the right placing for it, but I can't deny that my basic ass has always really enjoyed it, even when I was in my full on Hard Candy Hater mode.
