The Katy B Discography Rate: Winner and runner-up announced! | The Popjustice Forum

The Katy B Discography Rate: Winner and runner-up announced!

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by Wills, Jul 14, 2014.

    Over the past few years, Katy B has been quietly, but confidently, leaving her mark on pop and dance music, blending top-notch songwriting, expertly curated production and, perhaps most importantly, her often flexible and always crystalline voice. Now, it is time that we pay our respects by carefully rating each song in her oeuvre to date; it is, in my opinion, a testament to her consistency that I cannot foresee any particular song being ripped to shreds here. Except maybe the Olympics one.

    As always, please give each song a score between 0 and 10 (half points allowed), and PM them to me. The deadline for vote submission is 11:59 PM GMT on Sunday, July 27, 2014. Attaching commentary to your scores is welcome and encouraged to help flesh out the results a bit.

    I’ve had to make a few executive decisions as to what is included. Most notably, I’ve decided to omit the Danger EP version of ‘Aaliyah’, as it isn’t quite different enough from the Little Red version to merit inclusion; however, if enough people disagree, I can add it in.

    Also, a tip for those who aren’t overly familiar with Little Red: Listen to the Continuous Mix version of the album, or at least make a playlist with the songs in that order. Trust me, it’s a vast improvement.

    For your consideration, the contending songs are:

    And, as it turns out, none of the videos for the Little Red album work. Fixing that...

    EDIT: It seems the Little Red songs are no longer anywhere to be found on YouTube, so I haven't been able to link to anything other than the singles. Sorry about that!

    Re: The Katy B Discography Rate: Voting closes July 27th, 2014

    'Broken Record' and 'Crying for No Reason' better be in the Top 5!
     
  13. Re: The Katy B Discography Rate: Voting closes July 27th, 2014

    Not sure if I can pick a "winner" but Katy On A Mission, Easy Please Me, Broken Record, 5am & Crying For No Reason should be the top 5. (Everything can be #6)
     
  14. Re: The Katy B Discography Rate: Voting closes July 27th, 2014

    Excited for this!

    5AM, Broken Record, Everything, and Aaliyah are all worthy winners.
     
  15. Re: The Katy B Discography Rate: Voting closes July 27th, 2014

    Thanks for suggesting these songs. I've decided not to add 'Crossover' as Katy is only featured on it (instead of being credited as a main artist, as she is in 'Anywhere in the World') and it is not on one of her official releases. However, if enough people disagree, I can add it in.

    As for 'See Through', I'm aware of its existence, but as 'Witches Brew' was not released as a single in Canada (and I'd assume some other territories), I've never really listened to it. Are a lot of others familiar with it? I'll add it in if the consensus seems to be that it's well-known, but I'd rather avoid having everyone vote on a song they're not familiar with!

    Katy truly is the best popstar right now. It's a sin that she hasn't crossed over to America.
     
  18. Re: The Katy B Discography Rate: Voting closes July 27th, 2014

    Broken Record should easily walk with this if there is any justice in this world.

    Also, are we to vote on the Magnetic Man version of Perfect Stranger, or the one on Katy B's album? The one on Katy B's album sucks all the life out of it, while the proper version of it is immaculate.
     
  19. Re: The Katy B Discography Rate: Voting closes July 27th, 2014

    Personally, I'd rate them about the same, so it doesn't matter; for others, though, I'd say rate the version on Katy's album, since that's whose rate we're doing. (I mostly just say this because one voter specified as much in their comments, and I feel it'd be best to keep it uniform at this point.)

    Five votes so far - keep 'em coming!
