I know for me there are a few songs that I spent way too much time listening to while learning choreography or cutting medleys. I never want to hear them again, much less dance to them. And as much as I love music, there are some songs that I just don’t like right off the bat. So I don’t want either of these showing up time after time because other people find them to be particularly good Rumba or Foxtrot music.
Up to now that’s been a bit of a problem with the music4dance site since there wasn’t a way to explicitly like or not like a song, Everything was based on collective voting to match a song with a dance. But today I’ve added a feature where you can like and dislike a song. Then by default when you’re signed into the site, you won’t see those songs in your searches.
While I was at it, I added a few additional ways to filter searches based on how you’ve tagged and liked songs. Check them out on the Advanced Search page (remember you have to be signed into your account and have tagged or liked some songs for this to be useful).
And while you’re thinking about this, I have a question. What is a reasonable opposite of ‘like’ in this case? I’ve been using ‘not like’, but hate seems like it might be more accurate. Unlike and dislike were other options. But none of these seem quite right. If you’ve got any ideas, please comment on this post and let me know.
