Is the Freemasons remix of Kelendria's Work accepted here?

also, what about Kylie's singles from Body Language?

I completely forgot about this! The deadline will surely be extended as I haven't even promoted it! But thanks for the votes so far, keep them coming :D

It was very hard, cause I did not know which songs to include cause sometimes it's hard to know if a song is some sort of R&b or not, so I left some out, maybe those will appear in the countdown anyway :lol:

I'm starting to think about some slightly left field ones too - maybe this could've done with a nominations round too (cue the 'is it really 'Dance' tho?' with my Dance Countdown lol)

PS. do you spreadsheet this biscuits? Would Points / Title / Artist be the best format? (trying to make it easier for you, as I know how sorting these with a workable format makes things a lot simpler). :)

I'd say yes, based on I was perusing the UK R&B Chart number ones on wikipedia before and it's there. :)

I would say Kelly yes, Kylie no. But it's entirely up to you and your own judgement

Voted! Quite difficult to narrow it down to 50 songs, I had to leave some great tunes out. :cry:

Okay - voted. The five songs per act thing only hit one act on my shortlist - but then of the five songs I ended up shortlisting for him, two missed my votes anyway! :lol:

Half of my top 10 comes from THIS side of the pond ;-) (NB, that doesn't mean my top 10 is 50% UK :P )

Oh, and my No. 1 should be blindingly obvious to someone who knows my R&B taste, and will seem incredibly random to anyone who doesn't ;-)

Shoot I forgot to send a list but I will this week I'm excited to participate! Do thug/love duets count even if the verses were mostly rapped but the hooks were pure r&b??

Red Blooded Woman definitely an R&B song. To quote biscuit himself :lol:
biscuits wrote:For me, RBW isn't Kylie - it's Kylie trying to be generic R&B.
Slow definitely not R&B. Chocolate ........well the original version featured Ludacris rap (though the single version reduced him to some voice in the background :lol: :lol: ) not sure it is R&B enough but I think it is more R&B than Through The Rain (Ballad), Doesnt Really Matter (Dancepop), Work (Freemason Remix)(Weak R&b song turned Dance) :lol:

And Carbon, will you include "All I See" as well? That is definitely R&B though :)

I think there's a difference between being R&B and trying to be R&B. Anyway, there are definitely 50 songs better than those Kylie ones anyway :oops:

I've decided not to include any of them after all. Work because, as you said, it's a great dance remix (the original r&b song is lame), and the Kylie stuff is questionable (though All I See is quite r&b), but no one is gonna vote for them anyway, so my points would basically go to nothing. I'll include a Kylie song if I need filler votes

I will vote for them if I participate though I will probably voted some more pure R&B song like Brandy's What About Us & Full Moon higher just to be fair :lol: :lol:

Borderline I'd say, if there's enough singing parts in it then I guess it could be eligible - its like the rap/sung duets, I have a few in my list so... :-? :D

Let's see how much our taste has changed. I have a feeling the top two will remain the same though. :lol:

biscuits, do you think it's better to move this to Urban/R&B section? I mean, there are two on-going countdowns as well there at the moment. So maybe it will gain more attention?
Oops, I didn't spot that previous countdown. I'll keep it in this section but I must do some promo in the urban forum soon :(

I'd say rap no, hip hop maybe. I know that very vague!

Something like Eminem - hell no
Something like Puff Daddy - yeah

Hmmm, well ok, there are some that I can clearly remove then.

What about MIssy Elliott? Because Work It is perfection. :cry:

Maybe I should just submit my songs and you can let me know if there are any that are ineligible.

I wouldn't class Work It as R&B but it's your choice honey :)

I haven't looked at any of the votes sent to me yet so loads of people might have already voted for songs I disagree with :cry:
