Mine is no surprise to me..."More Than This" by Roxy Music. It's rated as an 8.0 overall, but I am just not a fan at all of Bryan Ferry or Roxy Music. Their stuff just sounds so cheesy to me. I've got "Avalon" as a 1, also...it's a 7.9 overall. 






So here's mine... 7.5 rating
Honestly, no idea why I rated it a 1.  Bad day, something in that version that bothers me, error on my part?  I would change it if I re-hear it on RP (I assume)... but would have to hear it again to make the adjustment.  Recklessly rating and re-rating things would destroy the integrity of the process.

The Lovecraft one is terrible, no doubt there.

I've never heard the Jaime Brockett and I am awestruck. I will have to listen many more times.

Pearl Jam - Black (8.1)

Lots of high 7s.

I was surprised that I rated The Gambler by Kenny Rogers a 1. I must've been in a bad mood because it's a solid #2. I did not mean that the way it came out. Oh there I go again. I can't stop. Insert joke about streaming.

Funny man.
I'm with you on those two songs.

I rarely give ones, mainly because too many people use them so often they kind of become meaningless. My highest though is the live version of Hotel California that averages 7.8. I mean, let's put out an even crappier version of a crappy song.

I do think the most meaningful summary would be to drop the ones and tens, then average the rest.


I have rated 1.8% of songs as a 1. That's more than I imagined I would but so is 3400 songs rated total. Did you know you can download a .csv of your song ratings now?

2.7% 10s

Apparently I have few 10s, but I won't question how these got in there...

Born In The U.S.A. - 5.3 

Range Life - 5.5

Incidentally, we just saw Pavement last week and they were just as imperfect as I expected, though they did manage a couple of  transcendental moments.

I have a number of those...some in the high 7's and 8's.  Yeah, that CSNY tune is probably one of them.  "Dust In The Wind" too.

I recommend Stopleak to all my friends. Seems to work for me. But then, I'm generally optimistic.
Cue the compensation! 
Besides. The Gambler is a pretty good story. I like a positive metaphor when the dice start to crumble and the chips are down...

Gotta be a 10.

FWIW - Scott's 4.8 or 4.9 is still the biggest jump.
