    Rate the Song above you.

    The old version hasn't had a reply in years so I figured I'd reboot it with a new thread. The rules are simple, you rate the song the person above you posted on a scale of 1 to 10, then post your own song for the next person to rate. If you'd like you can also give a brief description of why you chose the rating that you did.

    Some additional rules.

    1. You MUST rate the song above you, even if it's a song you posted.
    2. Try to be fair and unbiased in your ratings of songs. Giving only 10s to your songs or a friends songs and only 1s to everyone else's songs isn't fair and isn't gonna fly here.
    3. Songs posted must be appropriate for the site.
    4. Try to have fun and have an open mind, you might just find an artist, group or song that you've never heard of before that you really like.

    The first song is Darker Than Black by Pellek, which I recommend listening to at 1.25x speed (click on the gear icon in the video, it will allow you to change the tempo/speed of the video).

    Confused

    Re: Rate the Song above you.

    I've watched it all the way through, and even in 1.25x speed that you recommended.

    I'm not too huge of a metal fan, but I see the energy that they've put into their songs. In 1.25 speed, there's solid potential with it to have a more upbeat and fast-toned rhythm, which I guess a lot fans of the type of music genre would enjoy.

    Obvious disclaimer, I have very limited knowledge in this type of music, but I see the appeals. 8/10, Suppose I just didn't grow up with this stuff to fully appreciate it.

    This song existed 11 years before I did, but it is my absolute favorite from Journey.

    Re: Rate the Song above you.

    So I listened to it a 1.25x speed as I do with most songs and it was actually a pretty good song. 7/10.

    Re: Rate the Song above you.

    Use the 1.25x speed like you recommended. I really enjoyed the song in the first 1/3rd and last 1/3rd. The singer's got a great voice in my opinion. The background music kinda killed it for me in the middle so I'd have to give it a 7/10. Seems like something people who listen to that genre of music would enjoy more than I would. Nevertheless, good song.

    Here's ILIA - My Allegiance (with screams)



    and if you aren't a scream fan, here's the same song without the screams.



    I personally like the non-scream one more, but considering the music posted here so far, I think you guys might like the scream one more.

    What about Smooth Criminal, a remake of the original song by Michael Jackson, by a violinist named David Garrett?

    Re: Rate the Song above you.

    I'm not a Michael Jackson fan but this was not bad - 6/10.

    The Veer Union - My Shadow (Acoustic). Again, 1.25x speed is recommended, unless you like more slower paced songs. This is also one of those instances where I feel the acoustic version is better than the regular studio version.



    P.S. You forgot to rate CaptainPowwows songs @HelpfulAuroraParker.

    I like the song. Sounds similar to some of the stuff I listen to. I didn’t listen at the faster speed because my phone wouldn’t let me change the setting, but I thought it was fine at the slower pace. 9/10 for that one.

    Sorry but that's the entire purpose of Rate the Song Above You, to allow and encourage others to hear songs they otherwise wouldn't hear and potentially find a new favorite while doing so. That's how I've found out about many different songs and artists, and I would highly encourage you to do the same and play along, as you never know when you might come across a new favorite rather than using the cop-out excuse of "I don't listen to other songs I don't know".
