LDS Music Charts - What type of songs should be played at a stake dance?
LDS Music Charts is an online resource to help identify popular music that is in line with the standards found in the For the Strength of Youth program. The ultimate goal for this site to be a resource for youth committees to be able to suggest songs to be played at Stake Dances and for leaders to feel confident that the songs that are being played are appropriate. When used correctly, leaders can tell both youth and dance DJ's that they can only play songs that are found on LDS Music Charts.
The site is divided up into three main categories:
* Hot 200 (songs you might hear on the radio)
* Dance 500 (the perfect playlist for any stake dance)
* LDS 100 (a list of LDS Artist that are in but not of)
Every song is also added to its genre so that you can see all Country or All Pop songs on the list. Everyone can view the any of the list on the site, but if you sign into the site using your Facebook or Twitter account you can do the following:
* Suggest Songs
* Review Suggested Songs (the system doesn't let you review your own suggestion)
* Listen to a full length stream of the song (you can not download any music on the site)
* Read the songs lyrics
* Vote of if you like or don't like a song (the system ranks songs based on likes and don't likes)
* Add songs to your own favorites list
* View your LDS Music Profile
* View recent logins and their LDS Music Profile
* View are Blacklist (songs that have been suggested but might not be in line with the For the Strength of Youth program)
* Flag a song that might not be appropriate or just needs its settings updated
Although everyone can help to make sure the music on the site is appropriate, they do have a select group of individuals who regularly monitor the site and review songs that have been suggested or approved to make sure they are up to par. They just wanted to create a resource that will help solve a question that they have been faced with, "What type of songs should be played at a stake dance?".
