Ultimate Popstars 2019 - 593rd (22 Points)

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by DJHazey, Apr 29, 2019.

  1. Yes, probably. I actually discovered her originally through two of her songs being on compilations that I bought - Snow On The Sahara and Still Reminds Me. I’m glad I explored the rest of her discography as it’s so varied!
     
  2. Anggun would be found in my Top 100 too! She is amazing in her own right, I just need to invest in more of her discography for a higher placement I believe...
     
  3. @londonrain one of the best artists ever for her amazing variety of music!
    Amazing that you discovered her from a compilation! What a find!

    @berserkboi I really believe that if you do take the time to invest in
    more of her music that she would end up being in your top 40!
    Actually just hear her Echoes album and fall in love with her
    awesome pop sensibilities..that album is incredible!

    Thank you guys for showing Anggun some love, that's all I ask.

  4. Loved when she ran out of colors. Also, I'd wager, that the second and third albums are even better, even though the first one is so great.

  6. Seeing Cam on the list has finally made me put together the country playlist that I've been wanting to make forever. Burning House is a great choice.
     
  7. Ooh, BABYMETAL are one of the most fascinating act in recent years. Cool that both voters chose the same song.

    Fantasia's unique voice is quite striking, although I believe I've listened only to one or two albums of hers. And as for Cam I know of her only due to Winner's rate.

  8. aaaah I had a BABYMETAL phase back in 2014 and I loved their first album, the way they mixed traditional j-pop with metal is brilliant to say and i’m not even a metal fan

    This is the first song I heard of theirs and probably my favorite as well


    although this is a close second


    I guess I need to give the debut a spin it’s been ages...

  10. Sooooooo happy Gloria made it!!! She was just outside my top 40!
     
  11. Wow. I never thought I would be the Gloria stan, glad she got love from @invertedbutterfly too.

    Totally overshadowed by Madonna and Whitney in the 80s, then Janet and Mariah and Celine…. but she built up a fantastic collection over time and by the time her 92 Greatest Hits came out it was a no brainer it would be a big seller, much like Cyndi Lauper a few years later.

    She was a massive album seller in the UK in 89, two number one albums!

    She gave good ballads and bops in equal measure.

  12. Halsey's great, but since I only started really listening to her in like April, I didn't put her in my top 40.
    Strangers is a perfect pick though @Dangerous Maknae. I probably would go with either Devil In Me or Control.

  17. After typing, that Derulo + Minaj + Guetta song started to play in my head. Karma I suppose.

    Halsey is in the same category as Bebe Rexha for me - 1 bearable bop apiece, everything else about them = a big nope!

    I liked Imagine Dragons' debut but ever since...they're like the modern day Nickelback, can you come up with something else!1
     
  19. Imagine Dragons are usually useless BUT let me show the crowd two very good pop songs that, of course, were never pushed as singles.




    That's all.

  20. Not surprised to see Fantasia go. She has a hell of a discography and is definitely one of my favourite R&B acts so it was a no-brainer to include her. I remember following her progress on season 3 of American Idol and preferring Jennifer Hudson and LaToya London, but Fantasia’s post-Idol discography blows the other two’s out of the water.






    The song I chose, Side Effects of You, was written by Emeli Sandé and Naughty Boy and really works perfectly for her delivery.



    This is what happens when the forum’s resident Gloria stan @ComeOnGloria doesn’t vote.
