I've decided that a popular song for me has >4,000 listens. Here's a list of them. Why? Because I can.
11,253 - Stardust Crazy - 07/21/2007
Y IZ POPLER: It was fourth place in the Top 30 at one point, resulting in it getting 0'd down to 4. It's also really catchy and happy and :3.
6,533 - Genesis - 03/26/2007
Y IZ POPLER: It's a remake of Epic Orchestra, lol. I made it for reFX as a demonstration of their Nexus plugin and its Dance Orchestra expansion (my first commission! I was so happy).
6,280 - Rig & Spawn - 16 Bar Assassin - 09/09/2008
Y IZ POPLER: My second Top 5'd song! I was surprised, given that it's in the Hip-Hop genre...I guess the 0-bombers were feeling generous that day. It's also an awesome spur-of-the-moment collab.
6,205 - CTSG2 - Morphin' Madness - 02/15/2008
Y IZ POPLER: The result of the second Continue The Song Game!
6,132 - Ghosts in the walls - 09/11/2007
Y IZ POPLER: Probably because it's related to Halloween - people search for "scary song" and this pops up. But I like to think that it's popular because it has awesome subsonics and people tell their friends all about it.
5,815 - Haunted - 07/01/2007
Y IZ POPLER: Another Halloween song :P
5,375 - Fightin' Freddy - 09/15/2007
Y IZ POPLER: It was used in one of the winners of the 2008 Halloween contest, but I made this for a completely different reason: BritishMoose needed a fight song for Nuclear Freddy 3. He needed it that day. He's still not done :P.
5,373 - Nine Years Old - 03/07/2007
Y IZ POPLER: It's a sad song I made on Splice, actually. It's a remix of a song by Kevin Maney, who was the technology editor of a major newspaper. Those are his vocals you hear.
5,327 - Our Secret - 11/24/2007
Y IZ POPLER: I got in 5th place in one of the Monthly Audio Contests with this song. The theme was Ambient vs DnB, and I placed because the other 5th place guy (Dreamscaper) was caught uploading stolen stuff.
5,046 - Celtic Warlords preview - 09/01/2007
Y IZ POPLER: Uhhhh...it sounds good? It's the preview of a song I was working on for a mod of a game...I never got it done :P
4,671 - Dramatic Reading - Xaos PM - 11/15/2008
Y IZ POPLER: Top of the Top 5 a month ago. Fyndir's voice makes you listen to it over and over and over and over and over again, too.
4,555 - The Happiest Song Evar! - 11/05/2006
Y IZ POPLER: My second submission, and it's really happy!
4,531 - Dancing AND-DROID - 01/28/2007
Y IZ POPLER: It's pretty old, but it was used in Nuclear Freddy 2.
4,503 - 8-bit Village - 07/30/2007
Y IZ POPLER: Everyone loves 8-bit songs! :D
4,402 - Casualty - 08/09/2007
Y IZ POPLER: It's sad. I guess it strikes a chord with people.
4,236 - Darnell Theme - 04/30/2008
Y IZ POPLER: It got front-paged! My Pico Day submission, made for Hans Van Harken's Press And Punch Collab.
4,134 - To the Hilt - 06/03/2007
Y IZ POPLER: Sounds cool, I suppose. It might've been in the Top 30 at one point.
4,120 - Yummy Muffin ft. Cyril - 12/03/2007
Y IZ POPLER: MUFFIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINS
