Music Requests for the 2015 Black and White Ball
« on: October 07, 2014, 08:04:30 PM »

Hello, everyone!

Every year, the Black and White Ball staff works as hard as they possibly can to learn and grow from the feedback and different experiences we have received. One of the positive things that we have been hearing was about the improvement of the playlist year by year. This is not because we have minions running around trying to read your minds to find out what songs will be perfect to play. This is because those who attend actually have an input on the playlist itself!

We would like to get a head start on finding out what you, your friends, or anyone thinking about attending the Black and White Ball would love to hear and dance to! For those who may not exactly remember what they liked or didn't like about the previous playlists, feel free to look through the playlists of the past five years below.

2013: http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,17730.msg446669.html#msg446669
2014: http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,19570.msg480691.html#msg480691


Now, here are some things you should know about the playlist:

The playlist is generally a compilation of suggestions from the forums, social media outlets, and word of mouth. The Black and White Ball staff will look through the suggestions to look for songs that have a steady beat to dance to and fit with the type of dances being held during the event. We also check the lyrics (if there are any) to make sure that they are appropriate for all ages as there is no age restriction at the event itself.

While not all songs will be liked by everyone, we try our best to come up with a good variety of music for the various dance styles that will be taught during the weekend. The staff then has to ensure that the sound levels are correct, the tempo is right, and possibly cut some of them for length. This is a lot of work given how long the event is, which is why we have the playlist completed usually around the beginning of May. Because of this, we will be unable to take requests at the Ball itself.

Generally, we have found that the last few weeks leading up to the Black and White Ball sees an overload of requests and suggestions. Unfortunately, we are unable to include a good portion of those songs because it was so close to the event.

We would also appreciate it if you could link a video or audio clip of the song you're requesting. It isn't required, but it does help us make sure that we are looking at the correct song.



So what does that mean for you? You should get your requests in early!

This is YOUR chance to give input on what you would like to hear at the Black and White Ball!



We appreciate and look at all suggestions, but please remember that, while you may make a request, the Black and White Ball staff has the final say as to what becomes part of the playlist. If you feel strongly about your request, please say so and provide support for it. We are looking for all types of music from pop, jpop, kpop, anime, video game, etc. so don't be afraid to offer up any suggestions that you may have, even if you're not sure if it's suitable.


You may also email us your requests at bwball@fanime.com! If you choose to email us, please include "Music Request" or "Playlist Suggestion" in the title so we can keep track of it accordingly.

We look forward to hearing your suggestions!

Thank you!

They played "Hot Mess" by Cobra Starship a few years ago for a cha-cha and it was the best cha-cha I had ever done.
Also "Haven't Had Enough" or "Stutter" by Marianas Trench make good swing songs methinks.

Here are some songs that I think would be perfect and would really enjoy hearing. I'm including approximate tempos.... but they might not be accurate. I'm sorry that all the links I'm providing are on youtube.

Innocent (Castle in the Sky) - Joe Hisaishi - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvnA62FOECg
          The tempo is around 110-111...
Kiss the Rain - Yiruma - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIbUNfg_wmM
          The tempo is 125-126.
A Tiny Sunshine (Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE) - Kajiura Yuki - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfoTP8bvCR4
          Tempo is approximately 100.
That's all for now! I'm so excited for this year!

Please remember that we will not be looking at music requests for this year's Black & White Ball after the first week of May, so get your suggestions in early!

Dancing_kitty, thanks for those music requests.  We will listen to them, and just to let you know that if something does not make it to the playlist this year it will be on the suggestions for future years as well.

I'm just going by which songs sound fun to dance to. :D
There might be more but that's what I could think of at the moment. :)

Alyxiane,

Thank you for your suggestions, they will be added to the music suggestions list.  Just in case your suggestions do not make it this year please know that they will be available for future Balls as well.  Not all suggestions make it since we have more suggestions than we have time for, if we played all suggestions we would be there for about 24 hours.

@lilfry14 - Why yes, "Haven't Had Enough" is an excellent swing song. (WCS perfomance song in 2012) ;).

Morning Grace by Ritsuko Okazaki [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KjQOBMuMCE] A little slow at first but it picks up to a waltz tempo
Waltz of the Flowers [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cg1dMpu4v7M] and/or Swan Lake Waltz [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CShopT9QUzw] by Tchaikovsky (both pieces were featured in Princess Tutu)
Merry go round of life by Joe Hisaishi [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31nOaXSeqSo] Also slow at first but it picks up to a waltz tempo
Honey by Chihiro [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=paqtfwZNAIA]
Waltz by Suneohair [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ltDlYxo59A]
Romanesque by Buck Tick (not sure if it would fit but just throwing it out there) [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izm86WmlyvM]

I was going suggest Shine by Jeff Williams but someone already did, haha. I had more songs but I forgot. XD

Here's some ideas. Everyone should check out Platina Jazz Anime Standards Vol. 1-4. They are amazing.

Gekkou by Momoiro Clover Z (Lyrics or instrumental)
Platinum from CCS by Platina Jazz Anime Standards Vol. 3
Orion Wo Nazoru from Tiger and Bunny by Platina Jazz Anime Standards Vol. 4
Tenshi no yubikiri from Kare Kano by Platina Jazz Anime Standards Vol. 3

Great albums, I thought I was the only one that knew of them. Glad to know some else knows of them. Here are a few of the tracks I recommend for the B&W ball.

Sobakasu (from Rurouni Kenshin)

Hajimete No Chuu (from Kiteretsu Daihyakka)

Seikan Hikou (from Macross Frontier)

1/2 (from Rurouni Kenshin)

A Moonlight Serenade (from Sailor Moon). This ones a bit slow but good for a tango.

Last year at the dance rehearsals you guys played Cha Cha by Winterplay (Rumba) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VyLep2IvJkA
It was really great. I guess you played it again at the ball, but we had to leave early so we missed it...It'd be great if you played it again this year, though!!
