There was some discussion of making a poll in this thread, so I figured I'd be proactive, and see if we can narrow down what makes a song worth $3. No offense to Blondie, but a lot of people seem to feel that particular song doesn't have what it takes to be worth the price... so what would? Some possible examples:
A) A very long song. For RBN, let's say 8-10 minutes is a long song.
B) An extremely popular song. Something everybody knows and likes
C) A particularly "epic" song. Maybe a multipart song with a long buildup to a fantastic rock-out climax
D) Any especially fun chart. Either through difficulty, creative charting, or enjoyable use of visual elements, or just plain above-average fun
E) A hard-to-get band. Somebody that you expected would never show up in this game due to their elite status
F) Your personal favorite song
Those are all the possible reasons I can think of. Any others? Any arguments for or against these? Which is the deciding factor?
