Think you answered your own question already. Cabbage are not included very possibly because they are "not very well-known". The BBC most likely chose which acts were put on iPlayer, though there might have been licensing restrictions for secondary viewing by Glasto's organisers, the bands and their management - just guessing.LdashD wrote:A LPFC (level playing field chart) would comprise of all those tracks with the least plays, as they get plays they move down not up, it’s possible it could sort itself is it not and I believe the cream may eventually rise to the top too.
This is illogical, is it not? So you're saying you want a chart where anyone whose music gets 'plays' drops down that chart, right? On this basis, the bands/artists with zero plays on SoundCloud would be joint no.1 on this chart! Bizarre...
Hmm, my point is, very well-known bands don’t need promoting, I was speaking generally about wot kind of art/music gets foisted upon us, by so-called experts, or folks in power with possible ulterior motives etc… Cabbage et al need a push not Sheeran etc…
Erm??? get a play and you move down (or level), another punter gets one more play than you and you move up above them again.
Those with the least plays start at the top and work their way down by being popular, that then gives others the opportunity to become popular?
This would create an exceptionally dynamic chart I believe. Fun, entertaining, rewarding even for all concerned I reckon.
Thought it was obvious, must be me eh.
Not to mention it would also eliminate the need for promoting with false accounts etc, cheating/duping in fact…
Obviously, the icing on the cake would be that Ed bleedin’ Sheeran’s middling, middle of the road tat, would be firmly rooted for all eternity where it truly belongs, at the bottom of the pile.
It could even be taken a stage further by imploring punters to raise young Edwardo to the top. *
*For those others that can’t quite fathom me philosophy, for this to happen, this would mean we’d all get 3 zillion plays as well as that ginger singer.
