Hey there, peeps! Welcome back to Rocky's Music Taste game! This is our third episode and I'm your host, Rocky.
Firstly, I want to say a big thank you to all of our returning players. You guys have been amazing, and we're so happy to have you back for another episode.
Alright, let's get this party started! This episode is gonna be a wild ride, folks. You might love it, you might hate it, but I'm telling you right now - I've been waiting for this moment and it's gonna be epic! We're gonna be exploring the music of an artist that I absolutely adore with my whole heart... drumroll please... JAMES ARTHUR!
I can already hear the cheers and applause from all you James Arthur fans out there. Are you ready to jam out to some of his greatest hits and discover some new ones? I know I am!
So get ready to have your minds blown and your ears serenaded, because this episode is all about James Arthur, baby! Let's do this!
Theme: Anything with James Arthur!
As I’ve previously mentioned subtly in the comment section on last episode’s results, I’ll be scrapping the bonus points system but I’ll be still providing some riddles to make this experience more fun and memorable! Here it is:
In Hollywood's bright and glitzy town,
One star stands tall with a fiery crown.
With Aussie roots and piercing blue eyes,
His rise to fame was a meteoric rise.
He's played a love interest and a hero too,
Fought with flames and gone to the moon.
From his looks to his talent, he's got it all,
A triple threat, he's standing tall.
But who am I, you may ask with glee?
I won't give it away, can you guess me?
A brother to another star he be,
But his own path he carved, don't you see?
With his charm and wit, he's won our hearts,
From coast to coast, his fame imparts.
A puzzle for you, can you solve it?
Who is this Aussie star, can you admit?
Back to theme, I’m just going to ban this song for now cause it’s been very overplayed and I know for sure someone would have went for it … XD
Well let’s see how this goes! We’ve got 9 players and left and James definitely has something from everyone from his released songs to his unreleased, enjoy my LOVELIES!
Greetings, my lovely audience! As you are already aware, welcome back to Rocky's Music Taste. This is a show where we explore different musical themes and genres every episode. As a refresher, the theme for episode 2 was "Songs from 2022-2023 only".
Well, I have to say, this episode is going to be a doozy. I don't know about you, but no one likes to be taken out of their comfort zone, and that's exactly what we're going to do throughout this season. But that's the whole point of this show. We want to push you out of your comfort zone and introduce you to new sounds and genres that you might not have explored before. Each episode, we'll up the difficulty level because we're looking for one thing: the champion of Rocky's Music Taste! Anyways let’s get to the results this episode:
rory17 - Hot In It by Tiësto & Charli XCX: I’ve got to say that you’ve been bringing the fun and serving vibes since you’ve started! From the pulsating beat to Charli XCX's fierce vocals, everything about this song screams energy and excitement. I would 100% listen to this song a couple of times. Well done!
Jameslu - People by Libianca: OKAY SOO … I’m trying so hard to behave myself and also hold in the excitement because let’s all look a this link: https://imgur.com/a/ZhGBq8Y
I rest my case!!! Ultimate slay because I love Libianca and when I first came across this song I was my whole essence was captured! I probably make no sense right now but thank you for showcasing her this episode!
reallyreally - Nonsense by Sabrina Carpenter: Honestly, judging this episode is probably going to be the hardest thing ever and it shouldn’t be … we’re only on the 2nd one. I would have to say though that I don’t particularly love this song, I like it but compared to others it is falling short quite a bit unfortunately we shall see how this night goes!
Moviemusicguy123 - GODDESS by PVRIS: Omg PVRIS is in the house! Another band that I absolutely love and was thankful to have come across. Mhmm this song, I’m loving the setting and the whole eery production. I don’t love love the song like it’s not that much of a standout. I think you’re getting progressively getting there and it is only episode 2 so there’s still room for improvement.
MrRobzilla - Nervous by John Legend: I love me some good ol’ John Legend! First time listening to this song and wow vocals come throughhhh, you’re giving me ideas for upcoming episodes. The lyrics are so raw and honest, and the melody is so soulful and uplifting. His voice is simply angelic on this track, and the instrumentation perfectly complements the mood of the song. *claps*
tswiftlover13 - Ice Cream Man by Raye: *cries* Ohhh you literally came for my emotions today!!! The lyrics are so raw and heartfelt, and the melody is hauntingly beautiful. I love how she expresses her vulnerability and yearning in the lyrics, and her performance is filled with it! Wow just complete wow, this is going to be hard episode to rank tbh. *claps*
Tester - Angels Fly by Louis Tomlinson: Mmhmmmmm! You had a song change and I was like ooppp- why? I hate to do this to you but I preferred the other one, but hey it’s your choice right and you wanna showcase yourself too! I wouldn’t say that I don’t like this song, but it’s giving me middle-lower pack ish sadly.
Ajathekween - Immature by FLO: Come through with the choreography and vocals!! Let’s forget those for a second and the instrumentals are to die for, like I find myself often zoning out during the lyrics and digging deep into the song’s core meh! I’d say good effort this episode!
boozes - In the Stars by Benson Boone: Okay like WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN THIS EPISODE! Two-way tie? Three-way tie? Like you all did not come to play and the way the selections have been matching my taste is super insane! But hey we’ve all got that soft and ROCKY side. Honestly great choice for this song and I see why you’re particularly fond of it.
Congratulations to #tswiftlover13 and #Jameslu ! I was so torn and I literally could not pick only one person as the winner for this episode. This goes to show that you both pulled out pure GOLD for all of us to experience this episode. Thank you!!
Which brings me to the bottom: #Tester and #reallyreally . Well we had another DQ, so what will happen?
I’d honestly like to say that both of you did not do bad at all. Usually, songs that I put at the bottom are tragic but literally episode 2 and this is becoming fierce. So after my mini rant I’d like to say that:
You both are staying for another day! This DQ business is ruining my plans but clearly the players that are left are in this to WIN THIS!
Well that is all peeps, the 2nd episode of Rocky’s Music Taste is out and the 3rd one will be coming up soon enough! I need to get me some tissues after this *cries*
Hello and welcome back to Rocky's Music Taste. I'm your host, Rocky duh, and I must say, I was thoroughly impressed with the last episode. The music selections were literally SLAY!!! I’m excited to see what else our players have in store for us in the upcoming episodes.
Our previous players brought their A-game, and I have no doubt that they set the bar high for our future players. It's one of the things that makes this show so special. To our viewers out there, get ready for another exciting episode. So, without further ado, let's kick off this next episode of Rocky's Music Taste!
In the first episode, the theme was Alt-Pop Queens and now I’d like to switch up things totally, in my opinion, for the second episode! Although, we love our throwbacks and well known songs but I want to see what else you could bring to the table. Today, we're getting a sneak peek into the future with our theme of "Songs from 2022-2023.” You might want to showcase your favourite artist’s new work or MAYBEEEE … someone we’ve never heard of before. Keep in mind the comments and how the rankings went last episode to guide yourself to victory HURRAH!!!
Theme: Songs from 2022-2023 only
Here’s the most awaited part, I hope *giggles* This episode’s riddle:
I'm a band that's known for my unique sound,
With a frontman who can often be found,
Singing his heart out on stage,
And leaving fans in awe with every single phrase.
I hail from the land of the Union Jack,
Where I started out playing in small pubs and shacks.
But now I've got fans all over the world,
And my music has been unfurled.
Some say my sound is alternative,
But to me it's just my way to live,
And express my feelings and my art,
Through every beat and every heart.
So, can you guess my name,
And join the millions who have found their fame,
Through my music that's touched their soul,
And left them feeling whole?
Who am I?
I was unsure if it was fair to randomly post a riddle and pick the quickest ones especially since everyone has something they’re doing. I’ll allow 2 guesses per person but I won’t be revealing if it is right until everyone’s posted a song. Also, you can submit your guess with your song choice! 2 people will bee getting +2 points.
AAHH! Welcome to the very first episode to Rocky’s Music Taste and if you can’t tell I’m excited to be giving some rankings tonight! I was particularly please to see the great selection of posts that players have submitted. Although the theme was Alt-Pop Queens I also got to see your definition and in a way taste of your interpretation of this genre. I won’t be rambling on so let’s start with some comments:
boozes - Lose You To Love Me by Selena Gomez: I think there was a misconception that just because the riddle’s answer was Selena Gomez, a few peeps assumed that I was obsessed with her but that’s false tbh. I’d like to mention that I like some of her music but the riddle was meant to be easy since it’s the first episode so I went with popular knowledge. Anyways, this is actually one of my favourite songs of hers and it has been on my playlist for a while like the emotion and power behind her lyrics it’s so alluring that I love it. Don’t let me start with the chorus, great submission!
rory17 - Let Them Know by Mabel: I had to give this song another listen because I forgot what it sounded like tbh. Upon the second listen, it grew on me and the vibe is so attractive “Body SHAPED LIKE COCA-COLA.” You’re not off to a bad start at all and Mabel is now in my radar when I’m looking for some bad bitch motivation!
tswiftlover13 - Tears of Gold by Faouzia: AHHH well you already know I love Faouzia tbh! This song is still gold to my ears and forever will be timeless. The song has a hauntingly beautiful melody and the lyrics are both poignant and empowering. Faouzia's vocals are stunning, and she delivers the lyrics with such emotion and intensity that it gives me chills every time I listen to it. The lyrics, my goodness, it resonates with me deeply and to my core! *claps*
Moviemusicguy123 - My Mind and Me by Selena Gomez: I’d say compared to the other Selena songs this is my least favourite unfortunately. It doesn’t stand out too much to me in comparison to the others, or maybe cause this is the first time I’m listening to it. I find the song to be a bit repetitive and lacking in dynamics. The melody doesn't vary much throughout the song, and while this can work for some songs, I feel like it makes "My Mind and Me" drag a bit.
MrRobzilla - Here's to Never Growing Up by Avril Lavigne: Avrilll my low-key lover, Wow, this song is just pure energy and excitement! The upbeat rhythm and Avril's powerful vocals just make you want to jump up and dance along. This song is definitely going to be on repeat for a while. *giggles*
Jameslu - Explosions by Ellie Goulding: Woow I’m familiar with Ellie but I’ve never heard this song either! I am super intrigued and you slayed with this song choice cause VOCALS! The haunting melody and Ellie's ethereal vocals immediately draw you in and create a sense of MYSTERY! I can't believe I've never heard this song before, but I'm so glad I stumbled upon it now. *claps*
Tester - Team by Lorde: No NONO, Queen of Alt-Pop like I’ve been obsessed with you but I don’t really make it known, well until now! This is an absolute masterpiece and literally the empowerment is just overwhelmingly taking me right now. This is one of those songs that you unknowingly forget about but then geek out when you find it once more. Knocked it out of the park BOOM!
LooseyLaduca - Coochie by Shygirl: Ouch, well I could not get into this at all and I’d say this is far from my music taste. That being said, it is important to recognize that different individuals have different preferences and opinions, and what one person may view as a negative aspect of a song, another person may appreciate as an artistic choice. Good luck on this round!
Ajathekween - Pacify Her by Melanie Martinez: I feel like this is on the same level like the Coochie Song, I hear the alternative but I don’t feel intrigued by it. It is different, but the overall production didn’t do it for me. Effort is appreciated tho!
reallyreally - Quicksand by Hatchie: My goodness, like the more I gave 1st, 2nd and 3rd listens to decide the rankings it was SO HARD! After these comments I’ve got to check these rankings again to make sure I’m making the right decision. I’ll show the rankings but the top 5 slayed my music taste and I believe this would provide more hints! Never heard of Quicksand but as you all can tell I’m obsessed with this too like this is a song I’d listen to over and over again. BOOM! *claps*
PenguinOwen126 - The Heart Wants What It Wants by Selena Gomez: The 3rd Selena song, you all didn’t come to play eh cause I’d say I like this song but Lose You to Love Me is hard to top tbh by comparing you all 3. Surprisingly no one botched her song this round so *claps*
Lifeiscool: Unfortunately you posted after the deadline and to be fair to other players you have been DQ’ed. Mhhm I’m trying to connect this to the theme, but if you posted on time I think this would have been in the bottom. Cheers!
Well, now that all the comments are done I’ll be calling on the safe players:
Congratulations! Hopefully the middle pack can shine through in the next episode!
I’d like to address the top scorers this episode: #reallyreally, #MrRobzilla, #Tester and #tswiftlover13:
Congratulations to #Tester!
This was an actual slay and I was honestly surprised to see Lorde on here!!! But honestly you all brought it this episode and it was kind of hard to decide everyone’s placements!
Hello, peeps! Welcome to Rocky’s music taste, where we take dive deep into the mysteries of music. My name is Rocky, and I'll be your host for today's episode and well the whole season duh! I'm thrilled to be here, and I hope you are too because this game is all about testing your knowledge of music and also matching my music taste while having a blast.
For this episode, we'll be exploring the best of alternative pop music, sung by the women who rule the genre. From "Bad Guy" by Billie Eilish to "New Rules" by Dua Lipa. From indie pop to synth-pop, from dream pop to electropop. So put on your funky outfits, and let's have some fun with this Alt-Pop Queen theme!
Theme: Alt-Pop Queens
With that, I’ll be providing a riddle regarding a popular artist/ singer and the first 2 players that comment below with their submission will be getting +2 bonus point! Still hashing out the score allocations but that could be a big big score difference? Are you ready to unravel the secrets of this musical puzzle? Then let's get started, my fellow music detectives!
I'm a star of stage and screen,
Known for my talent and my beauty so serene.
My music career is on the rise,
But don't let my fame fool you, there's more to my guise.
I've battled lupus and anxiety,
But I've never let them get the best of me.
My life's been in the public eye,
And yet there's something hidden that no one can spy.
My name may sound like a spice,
But there's a secret in my past that's quite nice.
I played a character on a hit TV show,
But that's not where my hidden secret does glow.
If you look deep into my past,
You'll find something hidden that will leave you aghast.
I'm not just a pop star, I'm something more,
And that's what makes me someone to adore.
