#1:


It's time for Raetsel's third annual music ranking topic! There are a few twists this year, so please read the full list of rules & options before nominating.

0: To avoid any overlap with NFUN's "Board 8 Ranks Trails/Kiseki" topic, please do not nominate anything from the Trails in the Sky trilogy or Crossbell duology, or any remixes of those songs.

0a: Songs from other Legend of Heroes games are allowed, provided they're not remixes of songs blocked by Rule 0.

1: Nominations will be open until Saturday, September 12th. This will hopefully give everyone who wants to participate a reasonable amount of time.

2: There is no maximum number of songs that can be nominated. While previous years had fixed amounts (200 & 300), this year we'll be rolling with however many get nominated.

2a: As such, if you're reading this message early, you shouldn't feel rushed to get noms in quickly. As long as you get them in before the 12th, they will be counted, so take as much time to think about your noms as you want.

...unless you're just reading this message on the 11th, in which case, do panic. (Or at least ask to be given a time extension. I'm flexible.)

3: Songs may be from YouTube, Spotify, Bandcamp, Soundcloud, or any other site that can be accessed from my phone.

4: There are three nomination paths available: Chaos, Neutrality, and Order. Choose whichever one suits you!

CHAOS

You can nominate up to 15 songs with no restrictions! Commercial jingles, VGM, mash-ups, whatever. Whether you wish to use this absolute freedom to nominate 15 completely unique tracks or 15 versions of the same song, Chaos offers you the freedom to do anything!

...except nominate songs blocked by Rule 0, even the Lords of Chaos have some standards.

NEUTRALITY

You can nominate 1 album (with up to an hour and a half of music) and 7 extra songs! For those who want to nominate a standard length album for me to listen to, but also want the freedom of nominating a bunch of songs, there is the path of absolute balance.

Albums can be those actually released in stores, digital albums, or any soundtrack that could plausibly fit on one standard audio CD--even if said soundtrack was never officially released, as long as it does not exceed an hour and a half, I'll count it as "close enough to an album for ranking purposes".

[As this is still an individual song ranking topic, it would be appreciated if you gave me album links where each song can be listened to separately. A link to the album on Spotify, Bandcamp, a YouTube playlist, something like that. Putting the entire album in one very long video is discouraged, but allowed if that's the only way you can find it available.]

ORDER

You can nominate one deluxe album (with up to three hours of music) -or- 2 regular albums by the same artist! Be a Guardian of Order & go all-in with music from one artist or band.

You have some wiggle room with "same artist"--you could nominate a Beatles album & a John Lennon solo album, because of course you can nominate "artist when he was with a group" and "artist before he joined group/after he left group"--or two albums released under the same band name, even if completely different band members are performing under that name.

Just don't try to do anything ludicrous like "The Protomen & The Megas because they're both Mega Man related" because those are blatantly not the same band.



5: You don't have to use every available nomination, though it's cool if you do.

6: There is no "preferred format" for nominations this time. So long as it's clear what you're nominating, we're good.

7: Since I'm going to listen to every song at least twice before I post any rankings and have at least a beta write-up for all songs prepared, there's probably going to be quite a delay between the end of nominations and the start of the ranking. Please understand.

8: If you would like to be given @ notifications during the topic, please tell me how frequently you want them (just one when the ranking starts ; one whenever one of your songs is eliminated ; one whenever I'm talking about one of your songs even in an unrelated write-up).

9: Try not to take any ranking or write-up too seriously. Every nomination is greatly appreciated and treasured, even if I don't properly show that in every post.

And as always, thank you for your time.

If you're making an entire album from scratch, then no--we already have Chaos for people that just want to nominate a bunch of individual songs or make a weird playlist or whatever.

Slightly modifying an existing soundtrack or album... probably, since I want nominations more than I want to actively police said nominations, and you did ask nicely and all.

Hopefully all songs from the first two ranking topics, alphabetically by artist. Duplicate songs and songs banned by Rule 0 removed. On pastebin because it's too large to post here.

@paulg235
@Steiner
@NBIceman

Don't ask why any VGM I did not know the artist of was put under Unknown Artist instead of being sorted by game name; once I started doing it, it was a bit too late to switch organization methods.

EDIT: Also, Se7enthrust and I did a group ranking of songs from the first 10 classic Mega Man games; your call if those count as repeat nominations or not.

And a reminder that I'm fine with repeated songs, so don't endlessly force yourself to study the list of old songs, unless you want to. List was provided at request.

Let's see...

-I have virtually no experience with rap music outside of songs from my previous topics.

-At my first topic, I declared that I hated classical music; in truth, I honestly haven't listened to enough of it to have a valid opinion.

-I think the only opera song I know is that one song from Pagliacci which can best be described as "that one opera song everyone knows".

-I have never seen or listened to an entire Broadway play that was not based on an existing license.

-There really aren't many albums I've listened to in general; even with artists I seem to like, if it's not the type of thing you'd find on a Greatest Hits album, I probably don't know it.

-Don't have much experience with non-English songs in general, outside of some Japanese and Cantonese--handsomeboy's done a fair job of educating me on classic cantopop & there's usually a fair smattering of Japanese songs nominated, but for example, I don't think there's ever been a French song nominated.

-There are massive gaps in my knowledge of music from the 90s on. Especially with current music--don't think I could tell you a single song released this year.

[...well, I suppose I've heard of WAP and I'm aware Carly Rae released some music, but I couldn't tell you any names.]

-I keep saying I'll look up what Emo music is, but never actually do so.

-I have an interest in songs that could be described as "sad, but not soul-crushingly depressing". See: Misery by Creeper, What a Heartache by Dolly Parton, I Am a Rock by Simon & Garfunkle. I've never gone looking for any, but it'd be pretty neat to expand that playlist a bit.

-Wikipedia describes every song that has ever existed as "post hardcore", to a point that it became a running gag at the first topic. I'm not sure I actually know what post hardcore is. I'm not sure I'm convinced that it even exists as a genre because IT IS EVERYTHING.

-Truthfully, I could use another openly demonic or Satanic song. I listened to quite a bit of Year Zero by Ghost and Satan's a Woman by Twin Temple earlier this year... though those are both fairly easy listening. I don't think i've ever heard anything really hardcore demon worshiping or been compelled to seek any out; first thought is that things could go way too far very quickly, but I dunno, can't really judge something I've never heard.

-In spite of my love for The Megas & participating in an entire ranking topic of classic Mega Man songs, you'd probably be shocked how little I know about the soundtracks of the spin-offs.

-On a related note, I love Modern Sonic soundtracks, but the Genesis era is significantly less familiar. Game Gear games are almost entirely a blind-spot. ...like not just "Sonic game gear games", but I can't even name a single Game Gear song that I really like right now. I love Game Boy music, Game Gear is...a thing that exists, I suppose?

-VGM remixes in general are a blind spot. I never seek them out and very few of them get nominated.

As for things I actually have knowledge of...

+Grew up listening to an oldies station, so I'm familiar with the greatest hits from the 50s through the 80s.

+I think I've heard everything by The Protomen & The Megas, as well as almost everything by The Chipmunks & Chipettes.

...Yes, the only three artists I've actively followed are people performing as fictional characters.

+I think I'm pretty well-versed in music from cartoons, as you would likely expect from the previous point.

+UF8 has shown me a lot of VTuber songs, so I'm fairly well-versed on those too.

+I've heard everything nominated at the last three VGMCs at least once. So I have a general familiarity with the type of VGM people on this board like to nominate.

Great, thank you!

I'll be taking the path of neutrality, specifically (rather obviously) themed neutrality:

Album: Lena Raine - Celeste Original Soundtrack
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLe1jcCJWvkWiWLp9h3ge0e5v7n6kxEfOG
Bandcamp link if you prefer: https://radicaldreamland.bandcamp.com/album/celeste-original-soundtrack

Song 1: Mako - Forsaken City (Sever the Skyline Mix)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6LbXujfutWk

Song 2: Ben Prunty - Old Site (Black Moonrise Mix)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eeIEMOQw4s

Song 3: Christa Lee - Celestial Resort (Good Karma Mix)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-fmYK81MUQ

Song 4: in love with a ghost - Golden Ridge (Golden Feather Mix)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AgDYV_IbPuo

Song 5: 2 Mello - Mirror Temple (Mirror Magic Mix)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKnwVvXkWq0

Song 6: Jukio Kallio - Reflection (Center of the Earth Mix)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJXKBLeXK9c

Song 7: Kuraine - Summit (No More Running Mix)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_YLk0kJ3Naw

Again, Bandcamp for all the B-Sides if you prefer, though I'm not including individual links because this post is bloated enough as is: https://radicaldreamland.bandcamp.com/album/celeste-b-sides

Based on your previous post, though, you've probably listened to all of these before. Ah well.

Correction: I have seen the theatrical versions of Phantom of the Opera and Cats. I also saw the theatrical version of Godspell once, but I cannot tell you a single song or anything about it, it's been a long time since I saw it (or would willingly watch something like that).

I also may have heard the entirety of Wicked, on shuffle, without context, at random periods over a year or so without ever making much an attempt to pay attention or focus on it. I don't know if I've actually heard all of them, that would require...ya know...listening to the album.

(...I think I might've nommed some of these before, but I'm not sure at this point)


I'm pretty sure you never nominated any of those for one of my topics at least. None of the track names seem familiar.

Thank you for nominating these two for me, I was considering both (especially Dancebot). Less on the shortlist to cut! :D

Went back to some bands I've nommed for you before, what can I say, I'm a creature of habit. The Unlucky Morpheus track is just straight up "Hey guys we like FF8 and wrote a song about Edea" and it's great.

Also, question. My apologies since it's been a year, and I stopped keeping good track of my nominations in 2015. I nominated "T.I.M.E." by Neil Cicierga twice. Once which got last place, and once shortly after which got much higher. Did my "T.I.M.E." nomination do really poorly in yours? Just so I know what to avoid this time.


I believe it came in 21st out of 200. I commented that I loved the song, but had listened to it a LOT since it got last place at Se7en's topic and wanted the top 10% of songs to be ones I wasn't already in love with.

Slight chance it came in 11th? I know it was eliminated right before a big milestone... 21st sounds right though.
