Pop Band (The One You Love to Hate).

edited April 2012 in Your Ultimate Setlist
[CENTER]Alright, so I'm going to be completely honest, I just came up with this in a few hours to kill time. We listen to The Blend at my work and I pondered it on a slow day figuring, "hey, this might be fun to do." So I hear a lot of these songs on a daily basis. And this is the result of that pondering. I felt like the structure could be something similar to Band Hero, in that it was a compilation of 65 pop songs. Enjoy.

    I'd probably use Drops of Jupiter instead of Hey, Soul Sister, but that's a pretty solid list.

    Personally, I don't really care for the band so I don't know much of them outside Hey, Soul Sister and that San Fransisco song.

    Believe me, you know Drops of Jupiter. That's the only Train song I know, too, but you wanted their best-known song? I guarantee you it's that.

    This is my list of songs I'd cherry pick, but I'd buy the whole thing if I had to. Also, I'd rather **** You than Forget You, but there is no way.

    I think you missed a word here.

    I pray you missed a word here. :)

    As for the game and the track list, shoot, I'd buy. For Rod Stewart I'd suggest "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy?" in place of "Young Turks," and I wouldn't mind a little more '60s pop and disco, even if it means some Band Hero repeats like "Happy Together" and "YMCA."

    I was sort of going off of what I hear often at work, but then again who ever DJ's The Blend probably only has eight records on hand at a time... In hindsight, after I posted this, disco probably would fit in pretty well.

    Ctrl+F "Miley Cyrus" = No Results

    Seriously? How is Party in the USA not on this list?! For shame.

    I think I counted 14 of those songs I'd totally buy if they were real DLC. Most of the songs I probably wouldn't mind if they were on-disc for a game, but wouldn't go out of my way to get them.

    Okay...so The Fray and Owl City are both two good pop artists that should be in rb, but what about the total boy bands (PS. NOBODY reply with Big Time Rush *shudders*).

    No, I'm talking about NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, even Aaron Carter (okay, maybe not the middle one), but you get the idea. And if I hear a song by Adele or Kelly Clarkson go on rb, I dont know what i'll do. I know, I know smh. lol

    Either that or he's quoting a Soundgarden or Nine Inch Nails song that uses part of that phrase in the refrain.

    Also, "Bad Day" by Daniel Powter and "You're Beautiful" by James Blunt. That ups the Songs That Make LoopyChew Go Crazy But He Suggested Them count to three.

    I'm ashamed to say I would buy quite a few of those if they were DLC. Most of them for the nostalgia factor, but some I really like.

    Quick, make a "Black Metal Band" thread and a "Prog Band" thread. We might get a black metal song or a prog song as Rock Band DLC this way. ;)

    No.. I think I will make Pop Band 2 and it will be all Justin Bieber songs, because I'm spiteful like that. c:

    I would've preferred it to be a little more 80s heavy and include artists like B-52s, Wang Chung, The Buggles and many other one-hit wonders.

    It's alright though but I probably would only buy like 3 or 4 songs. blz0629 is right though: If you were going to make a pop setlist it would've been important to add 90s boy bands. I'll add that 60s and 70s bubblegum or even some doo wop should be added too.

    Now that "Smooth" is DLC, how about replacing it with this song? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWkMsqjFIXg

    There's a bunch of songs that I'd want on that list, but the fact that it doesn't have any 60's or 70's songs is not very appealing.

    At my work, if it's not The Blend then it's one of two country stations, so I'm happy to hear the blend. I just wish they would mix it up a little bit. Although it's a good bit of songs, they never seem to change. It's sad when I know that they've added a song to the mix ("Hips Don't Lie" is the newest addition).

    It's also sad that Adele has like 3 songs on there & Maroon 5 have like 6, but Lady Gaga only has 1 :(

    And like, three 80's songs. The Blend has probably the laziest DJs I've ever heard, I wouldn't be surprised if it's just on an iTunes playlist they left playing in a loop. You'd think that something as premium as satellite radio would have a little more attention to detail.

    Yeah. If they'd at least take requests from random people that aren't at work and are listening to the radio station for some reason, that'd make it better.

    There are quite a few 80s songs. I know they play a lot of Whitney Houston, a couple of Hall & Oates, I think one Stevie Wonder song, "Celebration" by Kool & the Gang, "Straight Up" by Paula Abdul, a couple of Billy Joel songs, ect.

    But yeah. I think it's someone's iPod just sitting on loop & shuffle. I don't think I've ever heard a spokesperson or anything though. Just lots of different renditions of an auto-tuned, harmonized a capella "The Blend".

    I think they only really started playing more Whitney after she died, because I remember only hearing How Will I Know before that. There was one time where I heard Chris Isaak "DJ-ing," although I'm sure it was pre-recorded, as we heard his cover of Only the Lonely three times in the same hour.

    I think I remember something where the fat cat lady from Britain's Got Talent was DJ-ing too.
