2011 Song of the Week Video Playlist

When we set out on our video/song project last year we had no idea what we were doing. In fact, we didn’t even admit to ourselves we were taking on such a huge project until we were almost a month into it. There were several motivations behind the undertaking that we would like to share with you, especially since one of them requires your help.

We’ve said before that for ourselves, we wanted to create more material, experiment and take off some of the pressure of constantly promoting our music.  But in addition to that, and just as important, we were really curious to see what our audience (that’s you) responds to. What kind of songs do you like? What do you dislike? What speaks to you and what’s a flop?

Well we’ve watched the videos, listened to the songs, tallied the numbers, and the results are in: we haven’t a clue! We cannot find any pattern, rhyme or reason to which songs got more views, or comments, or didn’t. We’re too curious to let it go, so we thought, why not just ask?

We want to know which are your favorites of our fifty-two 2011 songs of the week. Any feedback you have would be appreciated, but here are a few guidelines to help if you’re inclined to follow them:

1)   No more than 10(ish) selections please. Saying you like all of the songs is really flattering, but we’re really wondering about your specific, *favorite* favorites.

2)   Give some reason. This doesn’t need to be a long explanation, we’re just curious about why this particular song and/or video appealed to you.

3)   Send your response to us. You can email, post to the blog, comment on the videos in YouTube, write us on Facebook… send us a message by carrier pigeon, write it in the sky, purchase some local cable channel time and host your own show about it… or any other way you might think of 🙂

You may be asking yourself right about now, “What will they do with this information? Record an album? Write a musical and/or opera? Develop a sitcom with the best songs as its soundtrack? Create an elaborate video game where you have to listen to the worst songs when you lose?”

First of all, we will satisfy our curiosity. After that, one idea we have floated is collecting the best songs from this project in some manner—still very undecided on how exactly. Your votes will help us pick those best songs, and get us moving on the next project and chapter for Sound Semantics.

We’d like to thank you in advance for helping us out with this. We’re really excited to hear your opinions.

Peace, love and happy New Year,
Eran & Allie
