How I rate songs
I like to use a 5-point rating system. What the points mean differs slightly from medium to medium, so here’s what it means for songs.
A few rules.
- No half or quarter points. We’re not splitting hairs here. We’re categorizing.
- Every song starts with no .
- In Apple Music, all songs rated or above get a . Every song rated or below gets a .
1 - poorly recorded, out of tune, not even a song
2 - a song I don’t like
3 - a song that’s fine
4 - a pretty good song
5 - a song that causes an involuntary emotional reaction
