I don't think I ever had a #1... I don't really care, really :laughing:

But I like it when other people listen to the songs I post. Because I DO listen to every song that is nominated... :) I (almost) always have some ten or fifty minutes a day (or a week) to listen to the songs I never heard... .)

Wait, yes, I nominated "All the Way" (Sinatra) some months ago and it was #1...

Funny... :)

But that's cause it's a very well-known song. It's a pity some songfactors don't take the time to listen to the songs. They'd discover gems... :cool:

They don't!?

Who are these Songfactors?

We want names, so they can be dealt with accordingly.

:susel: :laughing:

On a serious note, has anyone stated that they don't?

I not only listen to every song, but after choosing the ten I like best, I have to listen to short clips of those ten a couple of times just to decide which order to put them in.

Sometimes I just make deadline. :headphones:

In the past there have been those that have said they don't have time to listen to all - and I guess there are some that don't listen because they think the song is too new/old/by someone they've never heard of .... but whether any of the current players listen or not, I do not know. Like edna said, it's shame, as there are some real gems sometimes.

I will admit to infrequently not having the time to listen to every song, but I generally say so with my votes.

Of course I listen to all the songs....I think that's the whole idea of the top tens....to be able to fairly vote and to listen to some new stuff, and find some hidden gems that you might enjoy...I admit there's only been a couple times I did not get a chance to listen to a couple songs....

I only listen to songs I've not heard before. Sometimes just a sample...but I listen.

Yes, I do the same. When I know the song I might like it or not... when I don't, a sample might give me a clue. Then I might like it and go on listening. Now, if I see clearly i's not the sort of song I'd like... I won't listen anymore.
