The Rating System has to be unique and changes with every different blog. For my blog, I have decided to keep the rating system for a particular album as the Indian Classical notes as suggested by my dad. Read on to know what each note will mean:-
♪ सा- Not pleasing to the ears at all. Do not go for this album.
♪ रे- Sounds as if it is composed by an amateur. If the music director is an amateur, then too bad for him because we got to know that! 😀
♪ ग- Not a good album barring a couple of songs.
♪ म- Okay album but you will only be entertained for as long as the songs are playing and after that you might as well forget about the songs. One time listen album.
♪ प- Okay album but will nonetheless stay with you for a month or so.
♪ ध- Good album with a few minus points here and there.
♪ नी- Excellent album which will stay with you for a long time and near flawless.
♪ सां- Flawless album, perfect album, call it whatever you want, but this one’s gonna rule your playlist for a looooooonnnnnnggggg time 🙂
CONDITION FOR THE ALBUM TO BE RATED सां :- All Songs (excluding Reprises or Versions) have to be #5StarHotelSongs!
So I will be rating albums according to this system which my dad suggested (Indian Classical Notes). Hope you liked it!! 🙂
UPDATE! — 2nd January, 2017
From 2nd January 2017 onwards, The #5StarHotelSong system will no longer be followed. The rating scale will remain the same (Indian Classical Notes), but each song will individually be rated differently.
Let me explain:
In the #5StarHotelSong System, whichever song was good, directly would attain a 5/5 rating. Wasn’t that unfair to the songs that actually deserved 5 stars, because those that deserved 4.5 also got 5 stars! Realising this (quite late, in fact) I’ve decided to change the rating system a bit.
Now I will rate each song on a scale of 0 to 5 stars. At the end I will find the percentage of the scores of all songs, and that percentage, I will apply to the rating scale of Classical Notes, so this is what I have calculated:
• Anything ranging from 0% to 12.5% is a सा (including 12.5%)
• Anything ranging from 12.5% to 25% is a रे (including 25%)
• Anything ranging from 25% to 37.5% is a ग (including 37.5%)
• Anything ranging from 37.5% to 50% is a म (including 50%)
• Anything ranging from 50% to 62.5% is a प (including 62.5%)
• Anything ranging from 62.5% to 75% is a ध (including 75%)
• Anything ranging from 75% to 87.5% is a नी (including 87.5%)
• Anything ranging from 87.5% to 100% is a सां (including 100%)
This system ensures that only the best of the best albums get the highest rating, and as I discovered last year that so many albums randomly got ratings which I later found were too high, I decided to incorporate this method from the new year! Hopefully, this way, the highest rating will stay exclusive, and my ratings will seem way more justified than before!
Again, there will be no more awarding of the #5StarHotelSong tag to any song.. RIP Mr. Tag!
