I mean Pentatonix had the right broken-hearted vibe and hit the notes at the precise angles. However, in my opinion, their speediness in the beginning and their all-of-a-sudden ba-da-dum completely suppresses any emotion. Though it differs from the typical version, Tori Kelly's version features solid opening music, then an escalation of power behind the voice. However, I lack the emotion behind her voice. Roy and Rosemary's instrumental version let the listener kick back and imagine how they want the song Hallelujah to be sung. The problem is, this feeling gets negated later in the song. Your Jeff Buckley is very traditional and soft; featuring perfect transitions... thank you for the advice.
Great choice! I originally cast this one down, but I know how a new song can have a bias against itself. I did, however, really enjoy enjoy the music, and can learn to like the words as well. I have agreed to put it down.
Boat on the River:
This might be the only song from the list you gave me that I will not put down. Could you explain this one?
Thank you, I completely forgot about this song. Now that's music...
Reason to Fight:
I have also never heard this song before. It is a real accomplishment to create a song that is good at the first listen to it. I will put it down.
I do not personally like this song, but this playlist is one for everybody, not just myself. I asked around and people have said to include it, so I will.
I just put down whatever truly moved me. I tend to focus more on the beat than the words, but if the words coincide, or even add more, it becomes a powerhouse.
I know almost nothing about blues and only have a limited knowledge in rap, so any music from those genres would suffice. Even any songs in the genres above which I missed would be a good addition to this list.
I also try not to include personal preferences because then it would be just about me and not "the ultimate playlist ever". Any songs that I knew I had a clear preference for, I did not include (though there is one exception, which I can argue for without showing any preference). I do have a few slight preferences, which I why I included the option to vote out a song from this list.
@thebuckaronatr: For my original post the minute I hit reply to get the callout, it made the whole post blank (and undos didn't fix it). I tried to hit send just in case the system would still register the content in the post, which is why you can see a blank comment before my complete post.
