aw man just noticed like a third of my non-placers were downtempos/ballads :'(

dyl, Thursday, 18 May 2017 21:46 (one week ago) Permalink

If there's one track that didn't place that I would recommend checking out it's "Terri Wells - I'm Givin' All My Love". Especially if you're in Tuomas' Boogie Appreciation Cru.

Choco Blavatsky (seandalai), Thursday, 18 May 2017 21:50 (one week ago) Permalink

Awesome ballot, Seandalai! I thought I had nominated "Just Us", or at least I meant to, but apparently I forgot. :(

Tuomas, Thursday, 18 May 2017 21:51 (one week ago) Permalink

i like all this music a lot and still don't really know what boogie means and what does and doesn't fall under that umbrella

dyl, Thursday, 18 May 2017 21:53 (one week ago) Permalink

Boogie is basically a direct continuation/offshoot of disco, where the strings and often horns too have been replaced by synths.

Tuomas, Thursday, 18 May 2017 21:54 (one week ago) Permalink

ah cool! simple enough working definition

dyl, Thursday, 18 May 2017 21:56 (one week ago) Permalink

D-Train's "You're the One for Me" and Sharon Redd's "Beat the Street"/"Never Give You Up" are stereotypical examples, IMO.

I just posted the full results in the main thread:

ArchCarrier, Thursday, 18 May 2017 22:03 (one week ago) Permalink

But boogie still feels more "organic" than later disco offshoots... Compared to eighties house, for example, it has more "real" instruments: normally guitars at least, and often drums too. Basslines are often done on synth bass, but typically they're still played live, not as a MIDI loop.

My ranked, Prince-heavy ballot, which I kept score of as we went (hence the final rankings next to the songs that placed).

dyl, Thursday, 18 May 2017 22:22 (one week ago) Permalink

a few caveats: I'm math-challenged so no bolding of unranked etc. sorry.

more important, there were so many one-shots (ONE! MORE!! SHOT!!) I wanted to include that I held off voting for some of my favorite Michael Jackson and Prince songs. Immediately regretted this decision because, for example, U Got The Look and Erotic City are objectively better than some of the songs I did vote for. I sold short Chaka Khan and Luther Vandross too, what are you gonna do? And I can't believe I didn't vote for "Keep On" by D Train...

anyway this genre and era are an embarrassment of riches and even though I hate this phrase IT'S ALL GOOD. warms my heart to see everybody's choices, inspiring even more listening and re-thinking

xp: As I hear it, disco bifurcated into 4/4 kick lead house and melodic bassline lead boogie. Boogie basslines are also more Motown inspired than the octave jumping ostinatos of disco. The lower tempo spawn of boogie and P-funk is 80s synth funk.

Since I see I was the only person to vote for it, I'm left wondering...are y'all unfamiliar with Whitney & Teddy's 'Hold Me'? I know it doesn't have much (any?) cultural cachet (I might be more familiar with it than most since that first Whitney album was in constant rotation in my mom's car), but it was released as a single by both artists, and I genuinely think it's one of the best ballads of the '80s.
