Title: Music Requests for the 2015 Black and White Ball
Post by: le_momo 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.

2010: http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,16384.msg425094.html#msg425094
2011: http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,16384.msg423410.html#msg423410
2012: http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,17507.msg444203.html#msg444203
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!
- Rebecca

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!

Post by: Wabbit98 on March 14, 2015, 05:01:35 PM
I'm just going by which songs sound fun to dance to. :D
  • Mamacita by Super Junior (www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dp-UKA8euY (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dp-UKA8euY))
  • Shine by Jeff Williams and Casey Lee Williams (www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOsGuSezvfk (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOsGuSezvfk))
  • Boop by Jeff Williams and Casey Lee Williams (www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kxq_waxBflc (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kxq_waxBflc)) <-- (This song may be too fast to dance to but I'm willing to suggest anyway heh)
  • Dance Dance Infiltration by Jeff Williams and Alex Abraham (https://www.youtube.com/watv=rasPXWdnO6s (https://www.youtube.com/watv=rasPXWdnO6s)) <--(I was thinking editing out the part between 0:53-3:21 so it's better appropriate for a waltz-type dance)
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.

Waltz of the Flowers [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cg1dMpu4v7M (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cg1dMpu4v7M)] and/or Swan Lake Waltz [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CShopT9QUzw (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 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31nOaXSeqSo)] Also slow at first but it picks up to a waltz tempo

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) (http://youtu.be/EahMqHEN8to)

Hajimete No Chuu (from Kiteretsu Daihyakka) (http://youtu.be/6SfLag6ktJc)

 Seikan Hikou (from Macross Frontier) (http://youtu.be/351cD3wZuUc)

1/2 (from Rurouni Kenshin) (http://youtu.be/d6MP8QM3_PI)

A Moonlight Serenade (from Sailor Moon) (http://). 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!!

Also, I want to request Fantastic Baby by Big Bang: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAbokV76tkU and definitely Splash Free by Style Five is a must for dancing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxVw4nEp01I

I'm not sure if it has the right dancing beat but I always think of a waltz when I hear The Piano Guys' version of Let it Go/Vivaldi's Winter. I know the original song is way overplayed but this version is really pretty I think and classy~ Would be happy to hear it!

I'm a swing dancer, so here's some music biased towards traditional jazz :) Not at all pop, but these are all crowd-pleasers for the swing scene, in case you all wanted to mix that in. Hope a few make it into the b&w ball playlist!

Swingin' On Nothin' - Jonathan Stout & His Campus Five --- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDt2UWoOxqY
Feeling Good - Nina Simone --- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5Y11hwjMNs
Dream a Little Dream of Me - Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong --- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6TmogXhOZ8
Diga Diga Doo - Big Bad Voodoo Daddy --- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufvmD9s76X0
It Don't Mean a Thing if it ain't Got That Swing - Ella Fitzgerald & Duke Ellington --- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxfMRhyzu3g
Sway - Michael Buble --- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZM-5SYr2Yk

If I'm not in the right place, please redirect me!
For those of us who want to dance but can't tell a cha-cha from a Viennese waltz, will there be any indication before/during the ball as to which style can be used for each song?
Title: Re: Music Requests for the 2015 Black and White Ball
Post by: echoshadow on May 13, 2015, 06:24:24 PM
Yes. They usually put up a poster board for the type of dance. But dont that stop you from trying. I'm not good at some dances but I just copy what everyone else is doing.
And yes this is the wrong thread. 

Also take advantage of the free dance lessons leading up to the b and w ball.

So, these are probably de facto when it comes to the playlist, but I figured I'd mention them in case they are not:

Waltz for the Moon - Final Fantasy VIII
Eyes on Me - Final Fantasy VIII

Also, some other songs:

Enchanted - Adam Young (Originally by Taylor Swift)
Lucky - Jason Mraz ft. Colby Caillat
Zoot Suit Riot - Cherry Poppin' Daddies
Save the Last Dance Dance For Me - Michael Buble
50 Ways to Say Goodbye - Train
Drops of Jupiter - Train

What echoshadow said is correct. We have "dance cards" at the sound table that state what dance is intended for the song playing. It is definitely not a requirement, though! :) Many people do the dances they know to whatever is playing that they can make work, so there tends to be a fun variety of dances on the floor despite what dance we have a song set for.




And thank you all for your requests! We are looking through and finalizing our requests now!

Feel free to keep requesting music, though! Whatever doesn't get used this year gets put on the top of the list for requests for next year!

We are officially not taking any more requests for the 2015 playlist but feel free to keep sending them in.  This year's playlist has by far the most requests that I've ever seen in the six years that I have been working the Ball.  Thank you and we will see you all very soon!

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.

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!
- Rebecca

Request for next year! Mamamoo - Ahh Oop!

We'd love to see you visit anytime! :D




Thank you for all of the requests, everyone! Our playlist builders are doing their best to make sure as much of these requests can happen throughout the evening!
