The Goal: Make an ONTD curated “Best Of” album for the boy band, SHINee.
The Rules + Explanation:
The tracklist will consist of roughly 20-25 songs. Songs will be split into six categories as follows:
- Singles (20 songs automatically picked)
- Fan Favorites (10 nominated songs)
- Deep Cuts (10 nominated underrated songs)
- Upbeat (25 songs)
- Slow Burns (25 songs)
- Love Songs (25 songs)
The highest rated Fan Favorite and Deep Cut song voted on TODAY will be automatically seeded into the final tracklist. This is to keep things even!
What is considered a Fan Favorite?: Any b side that has gained a notable fan following.
What is considered an Underrated song?: A song that is generally not talked about in the fandom.
*This is all very up for debate so I leave it up to the discretion of the commentor nominating the song and whether or not people agree with them.
Any song that is a solo (Y Si Fuera Ella), duet or features a non-member (Get Down ft. Luna) is excluded! Japanese songs are excluded as there is already a SHINee Best Of album of their Japanese catalog.
Singles are excluded! For a list of SHINee singles please refer to their Wikipedia page here.
HOW TO NOMINATE A SONG IN THIS POST:
- Please link or embed a video of the song you wish to nominate.
- Please only nominate one song per category, per comment. PLEASE STATE WHICH CATEGORY YOU ARE NOMINATING A SONG FOR. If you do not, than I will disregard the comment!
- There CAN be duplications of songs for each category (Fan Favorite vs Deep Cut), but songs cannot be nominated TWICE in one category. (Example: "Woof Woof" can be nominated ONCE for Fan Favorite and ONCE for Deep Cut, if there are any ties I will make sure to notify people so that hopefully the tie will be broken. If the tie is not broken it will be up to my own discretion and keeping the categories balanced).
- Please make sure you are nominating a song that has not been nominated yet! If there are duplicate nominations I will only count the first nomination comment.
- TO VOTE FOR A SONG please REACT, COMMENTS with “+1” etc under the song will not count! You can however, discuss how much you like the song or post additional videos! This is to make it easier for me to tally the votes! React however you want, but remember that I will be counting every reaction as a vote even if it's a thumbs down! Thank you!
NOMINATIONS WILL LAST TILL NEXT WEDNESDAY MORNING (06/17) 10 AM MY TIME (CST). ANYTHING VOTED ON AFTER THAT WILL NOT COUNT.
HOW TO VOTE FOR SONGS IN FUTURE POSTS:
- There will be voting for songs on a scale basis (10 being your absolute favorite, 1 being your least favorite).
- LJ has a scale format for their polls but unforunately it only goes up to 20, so for Upbeat, Slow Burns, & Love Song categories songs will be randomly broken up into three rounds of 10, 10 and 5. The songs in the group of 5 will also be on a 10 scale for voting.
- To keep things as accurate and clean as possible please do not repeat ranks on the scale (for example: even if you love both Ring Ding Dong and View the most, only rank View as 20 and RDD as 19).
- The songs with the highest scores will make it into the tracklist.
- There will (hopefully) be both a spotify playlist and a youtube playlist for all seperate categories to help with voting!
TRACKLIST MAKEUP (Tentative!)
- 5 Singles
- 5 Fan Favorites (with 1 automatically seeded)
- 5 Underrated (with 1 automatically seeded)
- 3 Slow Burn
- 3 Upbeat
- 3 Love Songs
*I'm keeping things kind of fluid, just in case some categories get more votes than others, but I dont think there should be anymore than 25 songs picked! If need be, there might be knock out rounds if there are a lot of ties.
I think thats about it! I hope I didn't make this too complicated ;; please let me know if you have any questions!!
I just want to have some fun and see what a fan voted for Best Of album would look like!
Happy nominating! (and if you're not that into SHINee or don't really know kpop, I hope you'll still join the voting and give them a listen!)
