Pitbull ft. Blake Shelton - Get Ready: 5. It's not really my thing at all--I tend to be brutally harsh to songs with repetitive choruses and "Whoa, get ready (bam-ba-lam)" repeated 24 times is certainly more repetitive than some songs I've given failing grades too and I have no real connection to the lyrics or video... but I have no objection to Pitbull or Blake's voice, nor to the band backing them. It's practically the definition of "fine"; I'll likely never go out of my way to hear it again, but I wouldn't say I disliked it.

Kat Deluna - Drop It Low: 2. ...When I made that previous write-up, I wasn't entirely expecting the following song to serve as an example of a song with repetitive lyrics that I disliked, but here we are.

I tried looking into some other songs of hers (since any complaint I'd have would be directed only at this specific song and I wanted to find something nicer to post), though I'm not seeing anything I'm a big fan of. The Spanish version of "Run the Show" did intrigue me a little bit?

One of the people i added to the playlist already closed their channel, so I've got to pick up the pace

MuMenkyo - Junky Night Town Orchestra: 4; I mean it does some things I like. There's definitely enough darkness out of what garbled translations I can find, the reference to China White is an unexpected callback (yeah, yeah, this song is talking about drugs and not the songs), it's kinda impressive this song is already getting covers (the original only came out in December), and her voice isn't bad... but it's not quite my thing.

honestly i figured as much on that song though, i just wanted to test the waters if you'd really feel that way

by the way, mumenkyo is like the one person i've posted that isn't a vtuber. she was the singer for this

picking out things from the playlist now I've kind of enjoyed, if it's not obvious

well, i didn't have this second one here in there. that guy who closed his channel also covered it and i just checked if anyone else had

Words on a Blank Page: 6.999~. 7 feels too high, 6.9 feels too low, the song exists somewhere in an infinitely small space between the two values.

"Like a bird locked in an empty box, my screams become rain and drench my heart".

Perhaps a bit too overly metaphorical (I still prefer Duvet's bluntness and it's not particularly close), but it's still a nice lyric. I don't know that Ruri's voice or avatar are suited to that sort of lyric though...



Buttercup Flowers: 6.6; it's interesting and I enjoy listening to it. His whispered singing in particular grabs my attention.

quiet room: 6.5? The lyrics require a bit more contemplation than I have time to give them right now, but I think I like it.

color: 6. It's different and kinda nice.

Crab Pulsar (SuperNova mix): 6.5. It's consistently above average in all respects, but there's no specific moment or thing it does that I really love. It's just, ya know, good.

And I think I'll break here for the night.

Colorless: 7. I love her appearance, to a point that I had to go check out the other two songs on her channel... this is pretty definitively the best one (though Jingle Bells was cute enough that it's a harder decision than it should be) thus far. I hope she keeps releasing things.

Rumors: 6.3; nice, but I again can't find anything I want to say about it.

i actually only found her because of that jingle bells cover when i was looking for xmas songs and all, and also trying to find vertical meme/song videos like what hololive was doing a lot then. i also only just found out that she's actually pretty popular on bilibili instead (nearly 100k subs there, or whatever the metric there is meant to be since I still don't know lol). There's actually more than two other songs on her youtube channel for what it's worth, but that bilibili account has a lot more
