  1. This rate is now third in the List B queue, so should be coming up soon.

    I've been debating whether I should add the charting singles from a couple of British R&B albums to the extras list, but the only obvious candidates that come to mind are Des'ree's Supernatural and Beverley Knight's Prodigal Sista. Would people be up for rating those as well? It wouldn't be the full albums - just the following tracks:

    Des'ree - I'm Kissing You
    Des'ree - Life
    Des'ree - What's Your Sign?
    Beverley Knight - Made It Back
    Beverley Knight - Rewind (Find A Way)
    Beverley Knight - Sista Sista
    Beverley Knight - Greatest Day

    which would bring the total number of tracks in the rate to 89.

    I don't want to overload the extras section if people aren't really interested, though.

  2. I think people know Des'ree's "I'm Kissing You," but other than that, it might be a bit of an overload. You do want as many voters as you can get after all.

  3. I doubt a few extras are going to make or break rate in terms of user participation, @londonrain. I presume people will come for the main albums and stay for the rest.

  4. Go for it. I'll be judging anyone who rates Life too highly though.

  5. What’s Your Sign isn’t much better.

  6. I don't know that one, but I'm ready for the "I don't want a Capricorn, I would rather have popcorn" lyrics.

  7. Don't do us Nelly fans wrong like that.
     
  8. You're a mess.
     
  9. The pseudo-hip fracture of summer 2017's long-lasting impact.
     
  10. Ugh. You are.
     
  11. The song opens with the following:

    What's your sign? Do you know?
    Let me guess. You're Scorpio?
    What's your rising? Where's your moon?
    Scorpios are pretty cool. See I'm a Sag.
    So they say. I'm a butterfly, I like to play.
    I'm always aiming into the sky.
    I point my arrows, extremely high.


    I’m not even kidding.

  12. Should i award it my 11 to maintain my rate villain narrative?

    Funnily enough I was still living in Mauritius when this came out and as my understanding of the English language back then was quite limited, I kept bopping along to the tune and thinking what a beautiful voice she had... now, actually listening to the lyrics - yikes! A prime example of an English song that should only be released in non-English speaking countries!

  13. Maybe I’ll omit the British vocalists after all...

    (Poor Beverley Knight.)

  14. I'm scared about what it might say about my Zodiac sign (even though I think astrology is total crap).

  15. https://genius.com/Desree-whats-your-sign-lyrics

    It only actually mentions 4 signs. If you're a Scorpio you're pretty cool, if you're a Leo you have nice hair and style, if you're a Virgo you have... eyes and if you're an Aries you smile.

    Thankfully the other 8 are spared.

  17. I am Pisces and I don't get to hear I belong on the high seas???

  18. I was thinking of what she could rhyme with Pisces and... well, maybe it's for the best it was left out.
     
  19. My Zodiac sign rhymes with...velaptosaurus?
     
  20. I don't know what rhymes with Taurus,
    So let me grab my thesaurus
