The old version died out several weeks ago and I loved it. (Good way to discover good music). So I'm bringing it back!

Basically you rate the song posted above. Post your own, and then someone else rates yours.
The best way to embed videos is this to use the bbcode tags. Then copy/paste the end part of the video's url inbetween.
So in otherwords

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJl37Nrp86E The bold part. So for example this without spaces

Code:
[youtube] AJl37Nrp86E [/ youtube]
So it becomes this
Spoiler:

Praise Lord Helix

Got it?

So I'll start!


Now go listen to some music!

okay, awesome. youtube videos embed automatically so all you have to do is paste in the url, so it's even easier than was described in the first post. 8)

anyway, that's my song. it's a bit weird but yeah, go crazy.

@ the above - i won't say i'm a massive fan really. i mean i can appreciate it but it isn't hugely interesting to me; sounds kinda like some cross between the black keys and arctic monkeys (in fact, i'd almost be tempted to say that's exactly what the artist is going for) and it's fun but just not really brave enough to me. plus i'm not a big fan of either of those, haha. listenable, inoffensive and catchy definitely, but standout? not imo. i suppose i'd say about a 4/10 maybe.

Quite an interesting listen. Definitely caught me off guard as it went from like oriental to like Caribbean (at least that's how it initially sounded to me). Probably wouldn't be a song I'd be able to listen to over and over again, but it's definitely an interesting one.

6/10

I loved this thread!

I'd give the above song a 9/10. It's not a masterpiece of music if you as me, but it is definitely a brilliant song deserving of a high score.

It's definitely an awesome song in my eyes, I love London Grammar!

Here try this one:

It's a decent song, but nothing truly incredible if you as me. The vocal isn't as good as it could be and the music isn't overly memorable.

6.5/10 Not bad, but not the best. Something about it just felt off...maybe the guitar... it's probably song I need to listen to more to enjoy.

This thread needs some Lorde.

(If you can't watch that link, try this one. [ame]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2jieTAMFLI[/ame])

I can't believe I let my old thread die. T_T

Okay, it sounds quite nice and relaxing, but not really special to me.
Didn't pay any attention to the lyrics (I rarely do), so I can't really say much about that. XD
6/10, sounds nice, but would get on my nerves if I'd hear it too often.


Here's something rather different compared to all the songs y'all posted so far. [ame="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uechR_KppXM"]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uechR_KppXM[/ame] something to cheer you all up. =)

It's actually pleasant for the first little while, but it gets rapidly more and more annoying. Props for picking something with salsa timing though haha

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ckv6-yhnIY[/ame]

Continuing with the seriously different music xD

Yay for different music on here. This was enjoyable.Here's something else different sort. Or different than what I'd normally post here.
[ame]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DksSPZTZES0[/ame]

Still the best Justin Timberlake song imo.

9/10 Can't go wrong with Justin Timberlake even though I like his funkier and more dance-y tracks.

Speaking of funky music:[ame="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyVDk8oWj9A"]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyVDk8oWj9A[/ame]

9/10 Nothing wrong with a good EDM song. Especially one so funky!

[ame]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDjpOrlfh0Y[/ame]

Now some good art rock/indie rock/world music .

Oh wow that was interesting. I tend to prefer pop-y, upbeat stuff but hey. That was cool. 9/10

I think the colour and/or the underlining code made your video not work in case you were wondering. :)

Anyway, it's fine to listen to, but nothing particularly special. 6/10

@Nuke - I have no idea how that happened.

5/10
In all honesty, it was okay but it felt really cheesy.

8/10 Bon Jovi is such a good classic rock band.



More classic rock music.

7/10. I'm sorry but I used to like that song, but Glee absolutely ruined it for me and whenever I listen to I think of that ;_: Otherwise, it would be higher.

I've been listening to Aloe Blacc a lot lately, he's absolutely fantastic.

Aloe Blacc is certainly a very talented artist but that song really falls short of some of his other work with music that's not that appealing and vocals that honesty sound a bit lazy to me.

8/10 I like Lana Del Rey and that song, such a shame that some silly remix was the only popular version of it here.

@elheroeoscuro Glee shouldn't ruin a song for you. (But I admit I hate their covers.) :P

Anyway on to this song.

I'd give it a 7/10. Not really into Beyonce, but her voice here is great (she's an excellent singer overall ) here and the lyrics are really beautiful , but Drake's rapping ruined parts of it for me. If it didn't have his rap verses,that would make it even better. (I hope there's a no rap version).


Since I'm listening to their album, Native , I thought I post this one.

Good vocal, good lyrics and good music. It's rare for OneRepublic to disappoint and thy don't with that song.



Another different genre and one I don't listen to much, but this is actually a really beautiful song.

The melody is very minimalist, and I'm not a fan of the guy's singing voice. Christina sounds nice though.

And I present to you...the ever so underrated but never duplicated Incubus <3

The music was fantastic but the vocal was missing something, the music overpowered it.
