The Darkchild Rate: hit me with the winner!

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by KingBruno, Jun 4, 2018.

  1. Welcome to the...

    [​IMG]

    Let’s start with a prelude.

    The contemporary, commercial tool concerning ‘90s nostalgia stimulates an over-compacted perspective on yesteryear, whether it’s related to old skool fashion or retro-themed films. There’s always that instant, yearning impulse of recollection when it comes to stuff like that, yet one major aspect is oftently regarded as something less significant – music. The ‘90s sound was predominantly established by producers like Darkchild, who improved the effective technique of catching inner thrills due to knowledge in machinery, which invaded discographies of some of the biggest names.

    After the turn of the century, these sounds became criterion that led to domination, which made them become commonplace attributes to an extent it crossed countless genres. There’s also an undeniable influence, as found in the modern alternative R&B movement, or in hip hop where they detracted minor details, or in Beyoncé’s discography. Even though many musical trends were put forward by Darkchild, there isn’t an iconic status attached to his name like there is to some of his peers like Timbaland and The Neptunes. Perhaps it’s because of his sonic diversity?

    But we’re on POPJUSTICE, and on POPJUSTICE it’s all about talent rather than popularity! SO LET’S RATE THAT!!!

  8. Early pick for the win is Telephone I must say, looking at the list! The Boy Is Mine should still do well regardless!

  9. Will definitely do this! Although i'm a little salty none of my suggestions made it in.
     
  10. So many amazing songs

  11. I can see a lot of stuff I like here as well as a lot I’ve never heard or even heard of, so I might just give this a go!

  12. The way Darkchild produced some of the best girl group songs ever with Holler, Say My Name, Lose My Breath, When I Grow Up & Cater 2 U, a lovely song in its own right with Let Love Lead The Way and then... Lease My Love.

    Bless
     
  13. Riiiiiiiii, KingBruno and londonrain like this.
  14. This line-up honestly matches up to Timbaland in terms of expanse and quality. So many iconic hits (and so many underrated flops).
     
  15. I'm here again @KingBruno, the list is too good.

    I promise I will be kinder this time except for this:

  16. When I Grow Up is my favourite song by PCD but will struggle to get above an 8 here....

  17. Sis Cater 2 U is amazing and while it will be the lowest DC3 song on here (deserved because SMY & LMB are amongst the best they've ever done) it still deserves a high placing.

    Certainly higher then Lease My Love, which is kinda terrible.
