I  submitted the lyrics to the parody that I recorded and linked to my soundclick homepage. I'll record another song when I get a chance, but my house was too crowded today.

Great idea david!

Thank you Chucky. . .It's going well so far, the station had 7 listens on it's first day, which isn't half bad, but as it grows and all of the artists involved and supporters listen--parodies will continue to improve in the charts, helping AmIRight and the popularity of the genre.

My song just jumped a hundred chart positions from just a handful (almost) of listens. A few more days of that sort of improvement would put it in great shape.

Day 1 Results

After one day of our new station, here's what happened

Below Average Dave's highest ranked song moved from 102nd to 97th (Up 5)

Kristof Robertson's highest ranked song moved from 243rd to 218th (Up 25)

Phil Alexander's highest ranked song moved from 231st to 223rd (Up 8)

Vocally Challenged's highest ranked song moved up from 358th to 254th (Up 104)

Merry & Pippin's highest ranked song moved up from 452nd to 259th (Up 193)

That's great progress. . .For those who wonder, there are over 14,500 listed comedy songs. . .1,350 of them were ranked yesterday (which means that many had at least one listen over the past week)

Thank You, and I too will listen everyday--Chucky is helping us too, he's been promoting it and I will be devoting a site to AmIRight Recording artists soon--I hope to help get more parodists recording. . .I am very thankful to have found this site and such a great community (over 500 parodists) united on the genre.

Day 2 Wasn't as eventful as Day 1, but three out of five artists moved up. . .

Below Average Dave's Top Song slipped 14 spots from 97th to 111th

Kristof Robertsons' Top Song jumped 30 spots from 218th to 188th

Phil Alexander's Top Song also hit the top 200, moving up 24 spots from 223rd to 199th

Merry & Pippin's Top Song bumped up another 13, from 259th to 246th

Vocally Challenged's Top Song was consistant, slipping one slot from 254th to 255th

Well, not really an -off- day so to speak considering overall the artists involved did move up, but lets keep on moving up!  No new artists today, I know you guys are out there.

I've been listening to it but I'm not registered with soundclick.  It looks like I have to be to vote on the songs.  Is that what the ranking is based on or just on how many times it is listened?

Subject: Re: Soundclick.com Parody Channel, 5 Parodists and Counting!!

Written By: philbo on 01/19/07 at 4:13 am

I believe it 's a bit of both, Karen: certainly the charts position seems to correlate with the number of times a song is listened to over the previous week (so either the votes sit on top of that, or there's also a correlation between song "listens" and votes, which would make sense, too).

But you can always register, anyway: it's free, and soundclick don't bombard you with junk mail (I don't get any regular email from them at all).

I uploaded another song, which was probably the highest quality of all my old recordings. And no, it's not K-mart.

Subject: Re: Soundclick.com Parody Channel, 5 Parodists and Counting!!

Written By: skittlesking on 01/19/07 at 8:35 pm

It's based primarily on listens, votes are added to that in addition to listens, but mainly listens as they don't require registration.  Ethan, I'll add it tonight:)

Oops, a slip of a day, only 2 station listens yesterday and it hurt the ranks--the new guy-Josh2 does not have his songs set up for the charts, however here are the other 5 in rank order as usual

Below Average Dave (Pizza Night) ranked 123rd today (Down 17)

Phil Alexander (I Will Survive) ranked 166th today (Down 12)

Kristof Robertson (Hookers at my Front Door) ranked 189th (Down 22)

Merry and Pippin (Fifty Ways to Piss off Peta) Ranked 201st (Down 2)

Vocally Challenged (Yogurt in Bed) Ranked 233rd (Down 15)

Figured I'd Give an Update

Since my last update. . .

Below Average Dave hit 66th today with South Park

Phil Alexander's I Will Survive Dieting sits at 157th

Vocally Challenged's Yogurt in Bed is at 214th

Merry & Pippin's Fifty Ways to Piss of PETA is in 256th

Kristof Robertson does not appear to be on the charts, nor is Josh2

Guys, the station's listens are tappering a bit, I think there is more support out there than this for the idea, in fact I know there is, one listen whenever you can to the station will help support our recording efforts and help us continue to climb in the charts. . . .just last week we had no songs in the top 100 between the five of us and only one in the top 200, well neither of those are true anymore. . .however this station is part of a big puzzle on how to dethrone crap on Soundclick, well crap still dominates, the highest parody on Soundclick is in 8th on the Comedy Charts, and it is by The Caca Man (Nasty Crap). . .when you have time, we invite you to listen, if you are a parodist recording, we invite you to join us (just reply like the other have), and if you are really adventourous you could eat at the new chinese place down the street while you listen

We'll have you :) as Merry & Pippin stated, open invite to AmIRight recording artists, as soon as you are set up let me know.

Weirdojace, welcome to the station, I'll add you shortly.

Josh2, It should be the default setting let me see if I can't find something on that for you on Soundclick, this is the first I've seen of Kristof's songs not ranking either, but I've never seen yours in the charts, so I'm wondering why that's happening. . .I'll see what I can find out. . .may have to email support@soundclick.com on that one though. . .it SHOULD automatically include ya.  The only thing I can see is that if no one has heard your song over the past 8 days it won't be in the charts, however I've heard both your songs once a day for three days straight, and the station has had a number of hits. . .you didn't make them 'retired from charts' at any point did you?  You may have to try deleting them and reposting. . .but before drastic measures I'd contact Soundclick and see if they can tell you anything, they are very fast responders.

I may soon have some recordings provided I can get decent backing tracks. Any help there would be appreciated (perhaps Dave can post a thread on recording "how to").

I just rapped "Prove Yourself" while listening to TOS. I thought writing rap parodies was hard... singing them is even harder. My vocal track, albeit with extremely limited modifications (a little reverb and chorus), is FAR from perfect. I'm going to install my Music Maker 11 this weekend and see if I can't make something that someone might actually want to hear!

Nucelar Bubble Wrap debuted today with Emo Song  at 119th (Starting point on station)

Phil Alexander's I Will Survive Dieting went from 157th to 146th (Up 13 Spots)

Vocally Challenged jumped from 214th to 190th (Up 24 Spots)

Kristof Robertson appears to be back on the charts where he belongs, he's in 243rd

Merry & Pippin Moved up from 256th to 246th (Up 10 Spots) with Fifty Ways to Piss off Peta

Jeff Reuban debuted today, but his song did not get approved until after the daily chart deadline

Josh2 is still not listed on the charts, but that is being researched. 

That means we have a song in the top 50!  It means we have 4 in the top 200, and NO ONE is below 250th at the moment, you guys know how to support your artists, let's see if we can't keep it going!!

I think Nuclear Bubble Wrap submitted them as recordings, but not as text. . .as long as they are somewhere here on AmIRight. . .I'm ok with it, but the lyrics being there would be cool as many of the songs I've placed on the station are also now getting attention in their text variations from an information standpoint.

Josh2---Mine are also freely availble with the same CC license as yours, and all of mine are elligible.

I would contact support@soundclick.com and ask, unless the files are less than 1.25mb that would disqualify them. . .Soundclick.com doesn't chart songs that are less than 1.25mb in size.  But I don't think yours are that small-small but not that small.

Oh--well that explains everything. . .yeah, the songs have to be 1.25 mb to be charted, obviously from my standpoint--they can be any size to appear on my station. . .I will see if I can't touch up your files and make them a little bigger for ya.

Josh2 Check your email, I ran your songs through my Creative Wave Studio and upped their volume, got rid of the air time, and tried to work a little on clearing. . .It got them both up over the 3mb mark which means if you upload them to replace your current versions, they will start charting.

I also have a Soundclick site, but I still have to record some songs of my own - a couple of RNB, rap, pop, and some parodies of songs from the Philippines, like "256", a computer/geek-themed parody of Rivermaya's "214", and "Itapon Ka Sa Bintana" (english: Throw You Out The Window), a parody of Parokya Ni Edgar's "Gitara" (english: Guitar). I know you guys haven't heard of these, but don't worry, they're funny indeed...

Same, do we have contacts for these artists, I'd love to include any and all. . .I know that there are many on Soundclick who simply don't use the messageboards, that's why I'd like to try to find someway to invite those who aren't on the boards, but do use the site to join in. . .but most of the regular site guys don't know about it, maybe I should go through the daily submissions and start replying to any submitted by recording artists letting them know.  Or maybe just go through some of the recordings and post in on as many as possible so that those who don't know about it might come across it?  I just don't want to add a lot of artists who aren't interested or want to support the site, but Rick is very talented, and while I haven't heard these other two--the more the merrier.  That goes for all artists. . .especially since my new Recording Oriented Parody Site is about to debut.  All but the front page are done.  I'm off to bed, I have to ponder all this, I made the station to be interactive so we could support each other, I want to open it to those on the site who aren't over here with us on the boards. . .just have to think of a way to do it.

Ok, I'm thinking maybe I should just get a list of all the parodists who you guys think should be included, figure out their email addys and send them each a "Ethan" or "Spaff" said that you have parodies that would be good for AmIRight.  By request, I am asking if it is OK to add you to the AmIRight Parody Station.  Kind of like an invitation to the station by request to let them know, they are not only invited, but wanted on the station, that fans have asked for them, because in honesty--that's what's happening.  What do you guys think?

Thanks, guys, for thinking of us. I went to sign up with Soundclick a year or two ago, and their fine print turned me off big-time.

I think I know why you though they claim copyright, the following notice is to visitors of the site, its terms of use of the site. . .

Use of Materials Found on the Website: The information, artwork, text, video, audio, pictures, software and other intellectual property (collectively, "Materials") contained on the Website are protected by copyright and international laws. You may only access and use the Materials for personal or educational purposes or as expressly provided for in applicable SoundClick program terms and conditions. You may not otherwise reproduce, distribute, publicly perform, publicly display, modify or create derivative works of the Materials, unless authorized by the appropriate copyright owner(s). In the event that you print Materials found on the Website, you must include any copyright notice originally included with the Materials on all copies. You may not link directly to any media file located on a SoundClick server, except where explictly allowed to do so. You should not attempt to claim any Materials as your own work. Any computer software downloadable or otherwise available on the Website is provided subject to the terms of the applicable license agreement. Before using any SoundClick logo or trademark, please contact SoundClick

however, immediately following that they go on to say.

Copyright and Trademark Infringement Policy and Notification Procedure: SoundClick does not own the musical compositions, sound recordings, art or other written or visual images (collectively, the "Content") posted by third parties to the Website. All Content is posted by an individual, group or company (collectively, the "Artist") who has represented and warranted to SoundClick that, among other things, neither the Content nor the names, trademarks and service marks under which Content is promoted (collectively, the "Name") infringes any third party's copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights, rights of publicity or privacy, or moral rights (see the section titled 'Representations and Warranties' of the current SoundClick Music Submission Agreement at http://www.soundclick.com/docs/legal.cfm).

Since SoundClick is not in a position to determine who has the prevailing claim to use any particular Content or Name posted to the Website, its policy on such matters is that they be resolved directly by the parties alleging misuse of their Content and/or Name (the "Complainants") and the Artists. We recommend that Complainants immediately notify Artists about allegations of infringement by going to the Artist's page on the Website, clicking the Contact link and contacting the Artist directly. It has been SoundClick's experience that most Artists are honest and responsible citizens who may not realize they are engaged in infringing activities. Typically, once notified of a claim, Artists voluntarily cease using such infringing Content and/or Name on the Website and elsewhere.


These are both in the "Listner" terms of service, meaning that those who visit the site and try to claim that they own someone elses work may not do so.  The direct linking rule to media is a bandwidth thing. . .they do provide links directly that don't hurt their bandwidth without people knowing it's hosted on their site.

Anyhow, here's their artist TOS

They also have a license grant which may have been the main issue you had. . .


You hereby grant to us, and by the act of delivering Standard Program Material to us grant to us, a nonexclusive, worldwide, royalty-free license to: (a) reproduce, distribute, publicly perform, publicly display and digitally perform the Standard Program Material in whole or in part (including the right to create compilations which include your songs); (b) create and use samples of the Standard Program Material solely for the purpose of demonstrating or promoting our or your products or services; (c) use any trademarks, service marks or trade names incorporated in the Standard Program Material in connection with your material; and (d) use the name and likeness of any individuals represented in the Standard Program Material only in connection with your material.


However, as reading further reveals, that is for promotion of their site and they do not take copyright to your songs.  The following paragraph is.

Ownership. You retain ownership of the copyrights and all other rights in your songs, subject to the non-exclusive rights granted to us under this agreement. You are free to grant similar rights to others during and after the term of this agreement.

Which means, that they have no power over your songs and cannot enforce their non-exclusive rights (which basically means they can use samples (30 second clips) of your songs for the sole purpose of promotion.  I can see why that might be a concern and respect your decision, my site (if I start hosting music files) will have no such clause as I personally would want to contact them to advertise their music anyway. . .but Soundclick does not claim ownership over your music what they claim is basically that they can have free copies for themselves and that they can use it for advertising provided they credit you, and that they can reproduce it for said purposes, but not that they can resell, make a profit or use your work for any purpose outside those that involve promoting the site and personal use.  That's my understanding, but that's also based on a fairly knowledgeable legal background being that my mother has completed graduate college in law and that I have four other family members involved in different matters in civil law justice and/or small claims and one involved in criminal law.

Wow, Dave. Thanks for doing my research for me.

This is the part I'm hung up on:

"You hereby grant to us, and by the act of delivering Standard Program Material to us grant to us, a nonexclusive, worldwide, royalty-free license to: (a) reproduce, distribute, publicly perform, publicly display and digitally perform the Standard Program Material in whole or in part (including the right to create compilations which include your songs)"

Perhaps a finer legal mind than mine can step in here and correct me if I'm wrong, but to me that says that Soundclick could, for example, put out a "Worst of Soundclick Vol. 27" compilation CD, sell a bunch of copies, and pay you nothing for your contribution.

Neither Robert nor I harbor any illusion that we're going to get rich from our song parodies; in fact, we give away MP3s all the time. I'm also not claiming that Soundclick would even want one of our songs on one of their compilations. But I'll be Hoover Dammed if I'm going to give them a royalty-free license to do something like that. I may not have morals, but I have principles.

Below Average Dave moved up 5 spots from 33rd to 28th

Phil Alexander jumped 20 spots from 141st to 121st

Nuclear Bubble Wrap jumped 18 spots from 145th to 127th

Vocally Challenged Jumped 17 spots from 198th to 181st

Merry & Pippin Jumped 10 spots from 209th to 199th

Kristof Robertson slipped 9 spots from 205th to 214th

Josh 2 HAD THE BIGGEST JUMP Threw Up in the Car replaced 535th place, up 278 spots to 257th

Rick Cormier moved up, but he was added mid day yesterday and only got a listen from the station, so I'm listing his rank as a debut rank of 284th and will use that as his starting point.

We were due for a good day, we keep having days like this and maybe Soundclick won't have such a crummy Comedy Chart were to be the top song, you just have to say a cuss word as fast as possible over and over or prank call someone who's working and act like you are someone else.  You'll actually have to, oh I don't know, TRY to write and perform something funny like we do. . .Congrats everyone, especially Josh2 as today's big mover.

Would you mind posting the entire text? The excerpt of the "royalty-free license" part I'm hung up on doesn't state that their use would be non-commercial, but maybe I'm reading it out of context.

I'm no longer concerned that they are going to claim ownership of the recordings; obviously I remembered that wrong, so thanks for clarifying it for me. If I can get past the "royalty-free license" thing, maybe I can talk Robert into doing SoundClick.


if you'd like I can take it to a few legal minds of mine and get their opinion.

Yeah, sure. . .here's the entire text as it applies to music submitted. . . .The way it is worded they could make a CD Complication which includes your song, however they would have to compensate you for it.  Additionally they have no ownership rights over the songs you submit thus meaning they can't claim or reproduce the songs without giving you full credit.  I myself want to start my own parody site without any of the legal mumbo jumbo, but the way it is, they have some rights that they grant with this, but they do not get control of your songs nor can they sell it without compensating you personally.   Read #2 for clarification on that.  Anyhow, again, I understand. . .to be 100% honest I don't particularly like #1 myself. . .but then again I know that my songs wouldn't get them any money and that I guess is why I'm willing to do it, my main thing is that I get credit for my music, If they were to include me in some sick comedy complication, I'd feel honored:)  Well see.  Anyway, it's all up to you and I will run it by someone in my family upon first opportunity as soon as possible, but the way that I read it, and the way my friend read it on first look gives them very limited rights to the music, but enough to where the only commercial right they have to the music is to include it on complication CDs, and they would have to compensate you and give credit completely to you.  (Like best of Soundclick.com, featuring Song A by Artist A and so on).


This agreement describes the legal relationship between you (an individual artist, or, in the case where you are involved with a band, an individual acting as the legal representative of your band) and SoundClick, Inc. (refered to us "we" or "us"). By submitting any material or information to SoundClick, its successors, assigns, agents, distributors and licensees, you explicitly confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to the following agreement:

2.        Termination. You may terminate this agreement at any time by so notifying us; the agreement will terminate upon our actual receipt of such notice. We may terminate this agreement at any time without notification. Upon termination, all of our license rights terminate, except that we retain those rights necessary for us to sell any CDs or other tangible goods which we have produced prior to the date of termination which incorporate any of your Material (as defined in section 3 below). Our obligation to pay you amounts due to you under this agreement survives termination. Also, sections 3 and 6 below survive termination.

3.        Representations and Warranties. The term "Material" means all material that you submit to us, including Standard Program Material, Sample Songs, and Collateral Material, as applicable. You represent and warrant that (a) the Material is your or your bandĺs own original work, and contains no sampled material, (b) you have full right and power to enter into and perform this agreement, and have secured all third party consents necessary to enter into this agreement, (c) the Material does not and will not infringe on any third partyĺs copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights, rights of publicity or privacy, or moral rights (d) the Material does not and will not violate any law, statute, ordinance or regulation; (e) the Material is not and will not be defamatory, trade libelous, pornographic or obscene, (f) the Material does not and will not contain any viruses or other programming routines that detrimentally interfere with computer systems or data, (g) all factual assertions that you have made and will make to us are true and complete.

Thanks for posting that, Dave.

Unfortunately, seeing that portion of the "License Grant" in context confirms my concerns. 1(a) says they can distribute (etc.) your recordings however they want. 1(b) says they will create and use *samples* only for the purpose of promotion. In other words, the way I read it, the "solely for promoting" verbiage only applies to the stuff in 1(b). And even if they *were* to promise to use full recordings solely for promotion, well, promotion can be defined as pretty much anything, including selling CDs.

In fact, the "Termination" section of "General Terms" presumes that they *are* going to sell CDs, and that they can continue to do so even if you terminate the agreement. They say that their obligation to pay you "amounts due to you under this agreement" also survives termination, but nowhere in the agreement do they actually specify any amounts due to you.

If your in-house counsel interprets this stuff differently, let me know, but for now I'm going to have to watch you SoundClick guys from the sidelines.

Thanks again for being so helpful and nice.

Josh, I liked the Survivor parody (Threw up in the car).  I was curious with the parody title being so different than the OS (both in syllables and sound) but it worked.  For constructive criticism, I might boost the volume of the vocals a bit, the background music drowned out your voice sometimes.

Hey Merry & Pippin. . .I can sequence songs and work with their volumes.  If you have the time, and you can send me the vocals seperate from the backing track and then of course the backing track (midis work well for this because I can actually remove sounds which is why some of my songs are starting to do well what they are doing) I can probably help get the two more even.  Your parodies are among the most creative parodies here on AmIRight, I am very happy to have you and the other 8 artists who are on this station on board for this. . .I've helped Ethan with sequencing on his current upcoming project and I helped boost Josh2's overall volume (although I couldn't do much to differentiate the vocals/backing because they were already together)  Just let me know, I mean I can do about one song a night and if you want to give me any credit, you can just note it in the song information page that I assisted in sequencing, that is of course if you like what I do. . .up to you

Votes for "Hot" also count. . .which now and then I go through and "Hot" every station song.  Someone may have also "Flopped" the song the day before which cancels out their listen for the charts, but not the stats. . .Also, it may have just been a down day for comedy in general which means staying even will cause you to move up.  South Park has had a few days with less listens than the day before, but yet it moved up, similarly more listens and moved down (like today) so it's a combination of things.  Persistance seems to help songs a lot.

I don't have a VIP account. . .I'm consistantly in the top 50. . .VIP helps, but I also believe that some of mine comes from finding cliques that are into a particular song.  Many of my daily listens come simply from posting it on amiright.com's front page and in different forums that may have interest in my songs. . .also sometimes "shock" appeal can get listens.  That's why "Wind Beneath My Butt" was at one point my Big hit and became the first song to skim the top 50, I also believe it's what's fuelling some of Josh2 and Jeff Reuben's success.  Key to that, Shock Appeal works for a little while (Wind Beneath My Butt has subsided as I have higher quality songs) but the thing is it gets people to check out your other music, well that said because Wind Beneath My Butt while not my best quality, was still a decent recording and resulted in getting listens to other 'related' songs. . .In this case, those attracted to Wind also listened to No Hos, Chubilicious and Crazy for Chips. . .those songs then became chart songs and they each got followings that lead to listens for other songs their fans were interested in. . .kinda like a chain reaction.

Shock appeal does help, as does a familiar topic, possibly commercially linked. When I first had soundclick, my biggest hit was a song called k-mart. That song is currently retired, or at least on sabbatical.

Yep--Yahoo! and South Park both fit that description and are constantly among my top 10. . .also Jock Itch, Chubilicious, No Hos, He Likes Guys and Rainbow all get hits from shock appeal I think. . .so a number of thing.  Popular topics, songs and artists can attract attention.  Casino Queen, my parody of Michael Jackson's Billie Jean always gets hits because of the controversy surrounding Michael. . .so just by putting Michael Jackson Parody in my title it gets listens everyday.  Same with Careless Hook Ups and George Michael--the World loves Scandals so those songs do well.  Yogurt in Bed is cleverly written, but we both know there's no shock appeal there, or commercial appeal--but that doesn't mean it can't be a secondary hits--big hits though tend to be ones that people see and just have to know what on earth is that about. . .I think this a large part of why "Cross Eyed Girl" very quickly rose to 2nd among our station's songs, and why Phil's numerous crazy titles consistantly rank high.  Threw Up in the Car by Josh 2 is another disgusting example.

Doing my daily update, however I must inform you all that my car was broken into yesterday at work so I am a bit distraught right now because I didn't really own very much and we all know how often people get caught for doing such things.  The thing that really kills me is that whoever did it popped my front lock while the back the back door wasn't locked at all, and broke out the entire front dash to get to it and no one in the back office heard it with the door wide open . . .

anyway

Daily Update. . .three records today have been achieved. . .

1st 3 songs have hit the top 50--never before have that many been so high
2nd 4 songs have hit the top 100 at the same time--again never before
3rd EVERY ARTIST on the station is in the top 150 (first 3 pages of charts) --CONGRATULATIONS

LETS KEEP THIS MOMENTUM UP---IF we can get either everyone in the Top 100 or 5 in the Top 50 then I'm going to make a recording B-Day and release many many songs at once and ask that all those with capability to do so do the same in celebration of the acheivment--I'll keep an eye on the charts of course--let's keep it up

32nd Below Average Dave (Up 6--was in 38th) 
40th Vocally Challenged (Up 15-was in 55th)
47th Luke Brattoni (Up 2-was in 49th)
97th Phil Alexander (Up 9-was in 106th)
104th Jeff Reuben (Up 26-was in 130th)
140th Josh2 (Up 32-was in 172nd)
141st Kristof Robertson (Dn 14-was in 127th)
142nd Nuclear Bubble Wrap (Up 11-was in 153rd)
147th Rick Cormier (**Top Song Change** Up 60-was in 207th) **Rick is today's BIG MOVER**
150th Merry & Pippin (Up 13-was in 163rd)

Congrat's everyone, and Kristof you may have slipped a little, but then your song is always consistantly in the same range, so you didn't really slip--just a tougher day.  Rick, looks like your take on feline feces is performing much more beautifully than the topic it's on.

I'll likely have two new ones by the end of the month.  I have around 15 recorded now, but aside from Cross-Eyed Girl, they all use karaoke tracks for the background track, and were recorded back when I needed to record to tape on a stereo and play the tape back into my computer.  So between the legal issues (Soundclick sounds like they might delete my account if I have no rights to the karaoke backtrack) and being able to make higher quality tracks now (go voice lessons!), I've only uploaded the one.  I spent Tuesday night with a friend recording the guitar chords for one of mine, so once I add the vocals, that will be ready to go.

Quick question, does Soundclick allow more than one song per author to be on the charts at the same time?  I read their FAQ and I thought the answer was no, but Ethan, you blew that out of the water with your post the other day about having (at least) two songs in there once Snakes On A Plane debuted (and Yogurt In Bed is still there).  Just curious.

We used Karaoke tracks for the last six, and the earlier ones actually had the OS playing very low in the background; Soundclick never seemed to care. ::)

Wasn't trying to rip off any artist, it was just the only way we could record them - we only did it for fun anyway.

The rule on the multiple songs on the charts is one per Genre or Sub-Genre. . .top performer automatically picked, Soundclick puts there charts together manually and the double-song in the Comedy Charts for Vocally Challenged was an abnormality.

As someone who uses the "Free Public Domain" midis as my backgrounds all the time-I can say that unless the original composer claims to want money for use (which would mean they shouldn't be downloadable) as long as they are used non-commercially you should be fine.  I remove the vocal lines from the midis though using Anvil Studio so they sound a little better.

Hey there, just listen as often as you can, I'm sure eventually I'll need a break too because of work and so forth--and three may or may not drop, I've noticed that sometimes a drop off doesn't hurt bad because often a drop off means that the other comedy artists struggled too . . .it may have just been ann off day. . .South Park yesterday topped 50 listens--that's the most any one song has EVER gotten in one day for me, on top of that, Weenie on a Hot Bun (My newest song) hit 20, I've never had two songs have 20+ listens in the same day, and four songs (How To Earn Beads & Red Ant Surprise along with the other two) hit 10+, the station has been gathering interest. . .if you haven't been listening. . .someone has, and it's not just me. . .let's keep this steam train rolling. . .yesterday was an off day. . .today is pending. . .but we'll keep working on it. . .although from the early going of my two polls what people may want is for me to host parodies physically on badave.com, have to look into what kind of bandwidth streaming causes. . .

Dave - I have a question:

Is there any way to vary the order of the songs on your station page from time to time?

I usually put the station on Lo-fi shuffle, or, if I am short for time I go thru and play each person's chart-song, but I suspect some people (listeners who are not artists on the site) may go thru and pick and choose. If they are short on time, the songs nearer the top are going to get priority. We are near the bottom, and so is Kristof, and once more artists are added we will end up on page 2... :( I am just wondering if there is a way to maybe weekly shuffle people around a bit, so all get a chance to be nearer the top...? I really do think it affects the number of plays to some extent.

If they are short on time, the songs nearer the top are going to get priority. We are near the bottom, and so is Kristof, and once more artists are added we will end up on page 2... :( I am just wondering if there is a way to maybe weekly shuffle people around a bit, so all get a chance to be nearer the top...? I really do think it affects the number of plays to some extent.


That's a great idea. . .I love dice and would be more than willing to do that when I do my weekly countdown on my main website and am updating all my other stations. . .the other thing is I've noticed that not many are rotating their non-listed songs. . .That get's songs towards the top too.  I always have my contest songs and the songs that have been struggling play. . .one thing that helps with listings is just switching out songs now and then--which you can do by posting here or emailing me. . .BUT I like the rotation idea. . .I always play on shuffle so I never notice because it's always in a different order.  I have a new ad debuting by Friday, the clips are recorded but it has to be put together. . .

Thanks Dave!

Incidentally, I see the Soundclick chart for today is updated, but maybe it isn't finished yet as there are some glitches - Josh's Threw Up in My Car is listed twice, once going up and once going down, and I can't find Rick's or Luke's at all yet...

I note that Jayce's Wonka parody debuted today in the charts! :)


We never rotate ours on our site, since our play was low until you gave us this station opportunity. I have noticed some of our non station songs getting occasional plays lately tho.' :) I still cannot get over the fact that in 3 years, there are 59 people loopy enough to want to download me singing off Key "A Little Flat Flounder, Fried" ::)

That's because all of them are now suddenly in the Top 10. . .The charts have changed apparently, because South Park got 50+ listens, but wasn't my top song, instead out of nowhere Weenie in a Hot Bun is now NUMBER 2 on the comedy charts, number 1 on adult. . .I think now they use Downloads too. . .because that is the only explination as Weenie in a Bottle got 11 downloads to South Park's 1  Whatever it is, the charts have gone nutso. . .in a good way I think . . .people don't retain the same spot for days on end any more. . .but at the same time I'm thinking the Hall of Fame needs to be discontinued--if this continues my whole parography will be on the station in no time, as will any other artists who have one good day. . .I mean 4 of us are up there today. . .4 That's Crazy

Uh. .. quick vote. . .the Hall of Fame I think needs to end and back to just 5 automatically for all artists--although we'll still have Hall of Fame. . .it just won't be permanent rotation. . .or we'll change it to Top Song or Songs that hold it for a certain amount of time. . .the reason I'm saying this is because now the charts ARE FAIR!!!!!!!!!!!  What this also means, is it appears Downloads, Listens AND Hot votes affect standings. . .not just listens. . .The result WE ARE KICKING BUTT. . .the problem, my entire Parography and I suspect probably a few others among us, have a lot of downloads daily. . .that's great, but it means my songs will be changing hands a lot, which means I very realistically could have every one of my 28 parodies Immortalized onto the station within a number of months, and eventually it will be entire collections. . .what are your guys' thoughts. . .I want the Hall of Fame, but perhaps not permanent rotation. . .what do you guys think.

**BEST DAY WE'VE EVER HAD***
**Below Average Dave's Weenie on a Hot Bun became the third song to earn Hall of Fame status, it joined Rick Cormier's Pew-Yew Pussy Scat and Dave's first hit South Park**
**Luke Brattoni's Real Slim Ladies became the fourth song to earn Hall of Fame status**
**Vocally Challenged's Snakes on a Plane became the Fifth Song to earn Hall of Fame Status**

Below Average Dave hit 2nd place with Weenie on a Hot Bun (Up 6)
Rick Cormier hit 4th place with Pee-Yew Pussy Scat (Up 48)
Luke Brattoni hit 5th place with Real Slim Ladies (Up 58) **Luke is today's BIG MOVER**
Vocally Challenged hit 9th with Snakes on a Plane (Up 44)
Phil Alexander was in 128th with I Will Survive Dieting (Dn 1)
Jeff Reuben's Cross Eyed Girl was in 129th (Dn 8)
Josh 2's Threw Up in the Car was in 130th (Up 14)--this turned out to be the real rank
Merry & Pippin's Fifty Ways to Piss off PETA was in 143rd (Dn 5)--see not that bad of a drop
Nuclear Bubble Wrap's Wonka Door was in 169th (Dn 4)
Kristof Robertson's  Hookers at my Front Door was in 185th (Dn 7)--NEW SONGS COMING SAYS KRISTOF
Rocksann--Debut not found--WELCOME FAN FAV-ROCKSANN with "Everyone Must Hate Ants"-#11

New Ad coming later today or Friday--I know, that's what the situation is though unfortunately

SIDE NOTE: Below Average Dave's Weenie in a Hot Bun Became NUMBER 1 ON ADULT COMEDY, OVERTAKING Yeah B**CH which HAD HELD IT FOR ALMOST A MONTH--CONGRATULATIONS AMIRIGHT--WE HAVE TAKEN HUGE STEPS. . .3 of the top 5 and 4 of the top 10 ARE HELD BY US!!!!  Let's keep it up! 

Merry & Pippin have suggested weekly rotating the order of classics on the station that aren't rotating. . .what do you guys think, I think it's a great idea. . .any other opinions?

Chucky we are taking off here, this is big news, maybe I should link to this thread in your news announcements. . .AmIRight Artists take 4 of top 10 spots on Soundclick Comedy!!  This was a surprise to I think EVERYONE. . .and still WE ARE ALL IN THE TOP 200--I'm so excited I could just eat a big Canadian Bacon Pizza with Crushed Red Pepper and a Side of Fatty Grease. . .I'm so Crazy right now.

This chart jump is especially surprising because I looked at my listens and yesterday was a relatively slow day for that. Maybe there were some hot votes...I don't know.

It could be download related, too. A few days ago SOAP got downloaded 17 times with only 29 listens.

How do you lot promote yours songs? also, does just playing the station over increase listens? or do i have to reopen it for more 'listens' to be added, cos ive started to put the station on, and continuely play it, and put the sound down if im lsitening to something else, and also just leaving it playing if im away form the comp.

Also, at some point I would like to record something, however I'm just getting over the flu and so my voice is in bad shape.

Hey Josh2, Let me know when you do , I can get you some better midis. . .Everytime a song plays that song gets a listen. . .the best way to increase it is to Listen to the whole station . . .quick trick. . .I've noticed that you can up your listens quickly when you don't have time by listening to 30 seconds of each song and it still counts because the listens are based on how many times the info for the song is loaded in the player not the streams themselves. .  .I still listen to the entire song. . .but sometimes I'll put it on play and turn off my speakers right before work when I don't have time. . .as long as it plays it counts.  I promote my songs here on the head page of AmIRight and on badave because it's my site. . .my songs also have built a bit of a cult following because of the number of stations who have chosen to add my songs. . .sometimes just getting one big hit (in my case it was Wind Beneath My Butt) to open the door for the others.

Yeah, now it's back to normal with the total listens because South Park is in 18th, it had a whole lot of listens which explains how it got up there. . .perhaps the first one was by listens and downloads and the second one by listens. . .it's so weird. . .it was official though because Weenie in a Bottle has 1st and 2nd still listed on it as official. . .so perhaps they are going to start doing this regularly. . .I hope not--one or the other--that was odd.

Well--tomorrows standings will base the improvement on the 2nd set of standings, being that after they "corrected" the standings (I loved what was posted this morning though). . .only one song was still in the Top 20. . .

Here are what the up and down tomorrow will start from

Below Average Dave was in 18th
Rick Cormier was in 64th
Luke Brattoni was in 74th
Vocally Challenged was in 114th (I have to wonder how the heck a song goes from 9th to 114th???)
Phil Alexander 152nd
Jeff Reuben 153rd
Josh 2 162nd
Kristof Robertson 188th (Almost the same rank)
Merry & Pippin 194th
Nuclear Bubble Wrap 213th
Rocksann 652nd

Merry & Pippin wasn't kidding about the 2nd update plumit. . .although I must admit I would have been happy with my 18th in the first place. . .but the 2nd place song being in 64th??? Ugh--were the listens down?  Mine were up across the board so I don't know what the heck went on with the rest of the songs. . .the charts were wild yesterday, let's see what happens this morning. 

South Park got 26 listens, that's 6 more than the day before and one download (consistant it is)

Weenie on a Hot Bun got 57 listens (A One Day Record for Me), 37 more than the previous day, 6 DLs

**Weenie on a Hot Bun got it's 100th listen yesterday too, it's only 2 and a half days old-that's a record for me as far as how many days to hit 100 listens**

I won't pretend to understand how the rankings really work, but it is possible that you had one listener listening multiple times...so your "unique" listens, upon which the charts are supposed to be based, were significantly lower than the total number of listens.  It's too bad they don't give you that information (maybe they do with a VIP account...I don't know).

Thanks Dave - I was really thrilled to see PETA break into the top 100 again (according to the song statistics, 96 was the highest it ever got last year when we first released it).

I credit its recent inclusion on Badave.com in helping it get more plays. Just want to let you know how much I appreciate you making this opportunity available.  :)

Now, on another note, I noticed that some of our artists are not downloadable on Soundclick...that must negatively affect their ratings, which is a shame. Any explanation for the non-downloadability? ??? (I really wanted a copy of "Hookers" for my continued listening pleasure...  8)  )

When an artist uploads a song, they have an option to make the song available for listen only, free download or paid download. . .by default it's "listen only", although occassionally an artist does that intentionally, it is usually an accident. . .My first 14 were non-download for a long time just because I didn't realize that you had to choose to make them downloadable. . .An artist may change this by going into "song info" and altering it's "licensing status" allowing for downloads to take place.

I'm not sure that you will be able to do anything about this but is there any way to get all the songs to play at the same volume? 

I am listening to it at work (on lo-fi shuffle) and I have to keep altering my volume setting for each track so that it doesn't blast out.  For example M and P Choosing my religion was nice at volume setting 20 then Nuclear Bubble Wrap - I Cannot Sing only needs to be at number 5

I am listening to it at work (on lo-fi shuffle) and I have to keep altering my volume setting for each track so that it doesn't blast out.  For example M and P Choosing my religion was nice at volume setting 20 then Nuclear Bubble Wrap - I Cannot Sing only needs to be at number 5


I'm guessing that would be difficult, since we're all recording with different setups.  Especially the older songs.  Unless we all submit our songs to one person, who balances all the songs to the same output level, or we all agree to save our songs at the same output level (and can figure out how to do that), there's not much we can do.

I have some original songs on Soundclick, but I didnt include parodies. Do I get an honorary spot? or should I put a few parodies on?

Yep Jeff, hit the head on the nail--I aim for a middle range myself so that my songs are somewhat comfortable in both ends. . .but certain high quality recording programs produce fuller results which means they are going to be naturally louder beause of their quality of recording, many of the older ones used less 'exotic' programs--although in the case of Merry & Pippin, I personally could increase the overall volume on their music if they'd like. . .never thought about it, they'd have to upload them again--but it's something I could do . . . .can soften songs too--but don't think I want to do that.

That's a question I never thought I'd hear:)

It's still on my page, but it is no longer my newest song, and I always place my contest songs first. . .Weenie on a Hot Bun will be back on the station more than likely though, Because it will likely be my SOTM entrant. . .I also am pretty sure that when the new station comes out, it will be on there regularly as a chart regular. . .

Matthias, the site is in a phase of Under Construction at the moment and as a result isn't getting the traffic it was before the construction. . .I am holding off the updating until I complete the renovation in which parodies will be hosted on the site too so that all songs get a fair period, I promise you this is intentional and that I am with-holding all new entries through the construction to help make sure that they get the light they deserve. . .your parody will get listed and it will be listed promptly upon the 2nd Grand Opening, a day which should be very heavy in traffic. . .that's why I'm waiting, believe me I have interest in having a strong opening and I want your song to be a big part of it. . .if you'd like I'll post it now though, I was just holding off in order to allow it to be with the rest of the main site's re-opening. . .

I am beginning to think these charts are really bogus. PETA has one of it's best listening days ever yesterday, and yet we plummeted. Doesn't make any sense.  :\'(

Upon further review, I think you're correct. 

I'm thinking the charts are a day behind where we expect.  For example, the charts showing today (2/27) are from the stats on 2/25.

I've always felt they kinda have a three day stat rank myself. . It seems my songs hold after a good day for about two days even if the next two days suck, similarly after a bad day (like a 0 if a chart song hits 0) the 0 seems to hold it down the next two days and it's harder for the song to recover.
