One Month To Go…

FT + Popular4 comments • 1,121 views

On the 2nd October we’ll be having the Popular HALFWAY THERE party at the Horse Bar in Lambeth, during which we will be playing only No.1 hits.

We want to save the best for last, so the night will climax with The Best Number Ones (that we’ve covered so far) – as chosen by you.

How can you influence this? Very easy:

1. Register with FT (sorry about this, but we won’t do anything naughty with your login). Or login, if you’re registered already.
2. Go and look at The List of #1s so far. Click on an entry.
3. You will notice that a 1-10 scale has magically appeared below the review, and you can click on a number to score the song yourself.
4. Mark some songs out of 10.

On the night, we’ll play the best number ones, in order of reader-determined bestness. Everyone will dance and be happy. We’ll filter out slowies though, and probably play those at the Hangover Lounge on the 4th (part II of the halfway celebration).

So what are you waiting for? VOTE!

    I’m steadily working my way backwards through all of these but there isn’t a 1-10 scale on the entry for “Everlasting Love.”

    There is on mine – avg score 6.4 – hit refresh, sometimes that bit of the page is very slow to load!

    Thanks – it worked second time around.

    Next query: I don’t really want to give the same amount of marks to “Tears” and “Get Off Of My Cloud” (as amusingly contrarian it might be to do so) – any way to separate this joint entry?

    Unfortunately not – since the average score on that is pretty high I suggest you mark it as “Cloud” since (apologies to Ken fans) that seems to be what other people are doing.

    There’s a similar problem with the double Singin’ The Blues – if I’d had this visionary web 2.0 marking system in mind I’d have split them out. In fact I should probably interpolate a blank entry for each just to allow the marking to be consistent…
