I stopped by SoundClick today and after noodling around a bit I found that SoundClick has charts where the list the top played songs. My song was #52 out of 9,162 in the Classic Rock genre and #551 out of 163,605 in Rock..
Songs are rated by the first play from any unique internet address. So, if you play it 20 times, and someone else in your house plays it 10 times.. Only the first play counts.
You can see the current ratings here.
Yep, I have a couple weeks off so I am going to spend a good chunk of this time recording some of my songs. This morning I finished up Tiresmoke and Gasoling, which is a song I wrote in remembrance of a GTO I had back when I was 17.. Dang I loved that car…
Keep checking back. I started working on another song this afternoon and hope to have it posted sometime tomorrow.
You can hear my new song by clicking play on the song player to the left, or goto my soundclick profile and play it there. Heck, if you love me mucho you can even buy it there…
There were First, Second and Third place prizes offered. Third place was what they called a popularity contest, which was decided by whoever could get the most shouts from users of the site, or anyone in the world who stopped by and left a shout. I came in second, Daniel Diaz beat my entry with about 20 votes.
2nd place was decided by whoever received the most votes from users of the site, and 1st was picked from one the top 6 site user picks by a band named Rooney. More information on who won what can be found here.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to leave a shout for my song. I didnt win, but I did come in 15th out of 66 entries.
