May Chart toppers: Chez Musinum Artists, Albums, and Tracks


Giu 6 2008, 13:17

Each week I list the top 15 Chez Musinum connected artists who appear on our group charts, extending the list to include any ties. The bottom tier is given one point for the week, and each additional listener counts as an additional point.

Let's say there is a six-way tie for 13th place one week, at four listeners. Since the next tier would start at 19th place, those 6 artists are the bottom tier and get one point apiece. Those with five listeners would get 2 points, and those with ten listeners would get 7 points. If the bottom tier is at three listeners the following week, that tier would get 1 point and ten listeners would be worth 8 points.

The monthly score is just the sum of the weekly scores. (Note that even though an artist who gets points one week may have one or more listeners in another week, those won't count unless the rank is 15 or higher.)

Two more lists are produced, one for albums and one for tracks, following similar rules, with one difference:

Instead of including the entire last tier when it would extend past 15 items, I omit that tier. In other words, rather than at least 15, I use at most 15. In the example above, with a 6-way tie for 13th place among albums or tracks, I would include only the top 12. The reason for this is that with albums and tracks, the list flattens out very quickly, so you can have something like a thirty-way tie for 11th place... compounding that is the fact that there's not as much consistency from week to week in album and especially track plays, so that each week tends to add a lot of new items. Thus with the rules the same, we end up with perhaps 30 artists, 50 albums, and 100 tracks. This change keeps the lists manageable and meaningful.

    (in an evil voice, with one finger on escape button...) "next time mr. cape, next time....but wait! NOOOOO!!!" (escape button fails, deepspace's spaceship explodes, leaving behind nothing but toasty bits)

    All I know is Tim Doyle used to head up this list every now and then before he foolishly invited all you powerhouses in so he could hold your hats and watch you duke it out like Godzilla and Rodan... Well, Our Sleepwalking Hearts was a warning shot (even if I had to enlist Pixieguts vocals and a cast of thousands of found noises to do it!) I'm plotting a comeback from my fortress beneath the Marianas trench...

    (Overlord Deepspace notes the location of Dastardly Doyle's hideout in the Marianas trench, and presses the "Insanely dangerous torpedo" button). click. (Deepspace's spaceship explodes again)
