    For people who are looking for players outside US, my username is Ratach. You can add me, I'll play with anyone who responds at least once a day, but these are my fav playlists, which I use quite often: Ultimate 2000's, Today's Hits, Eurovision, National Anthems and Metal.

    I don't mind the "Best Match" alternative, but you should still have the oportunity to choose random players. The "Best Match" could be a complement to the random play. I'm not so keen about playing agains the best match player that's suggested since it's based on the exact same playlists that comes up all the time anyway if i don't use power upp's to shuffle new playlists. Also the best match player should not only be from your global area and the best match should be based on score and not by playlist match. The idea to play best match with someone IF it was based on score and that the best match player is from around the Globe not from your native area. The best would be to ha e both. In my oppinion and everybody else here thinks is that the random alternative needs to be implemented again. And i hope this will happen soon.

    One of the best features of song pop is being able to play people from around the country and in foreign countries.  Please BRING THAT FEATURE BACK.

    Just wanted to say that I started a petition a few days ago, we have 80 people who have signed.  We need more people!! Please share it with anyone that you play SongPop with as this won't work unless we really do this collectively as players and make it known we want to be considered and listened too!!. I can't do this without you.  I have to send it to SongPop and trying to locate the proper contact, which I am working on. DON'T GIVE UP WITHOUT A FIGHT!!!!.  Please Here is the link:                                                                                                                                                                                                                          http://www.change.org/en-CA/petitions/songpop-bring-back-random-player-option-2?utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=url_share&utm_campaign=url_share_before_sign

    If anyone wants to play me I play daily (during the day and into the wee hours of the morning) add me!!!! My username is       ylimes

     

     

     

    Hey Money Penny I just signed your petition! I'm very surprised more people haven't signed it!!! I'm losing it with this new "Best Match" feature.  It's horrible!  Nobody responds to my challenges anymore! I'm used to playing against 80 people at a time and now I've got maybe 30 people who only play every couple of days!  

     

     


    If SongPop doesn't bring back random match I will probably stop playing altogether because as of right now, I spend more time searching for people to play against than I do playing!!!

    Finally tried the ne best match feature and fully understand why it's the best option for song pop. I sent three challenges ( which I haven't heard back from) and to send more you must pend your coins to shuffle the list! I now understand why they won't be bringing back the popular with players feature, RANDOM Match! Random match players are ready and waiting to play other random players! But spending coins is better for song pop!

    I understand that is probaly the rationale behind it, but it is just going to drive people away and make them quit playing. (including people who are VIP and were paying to pay), which to me seems like more of a loss than the money they would make off that. but that is just me...

    Wow!  There are so many people on this forum with valid requests. I got so tired of the "add me" begging on SongPops FB app page that I started a petition. We already have 100 people who signed and we get a substantial amount more if everyone gives it a go and shares on their FB wall, shares with Friends and other Opponents and especially more people that speak other Languages since I don't want them to miss out on this chance to have their voices heard.  It might worked better than the same old response that you get from SP.  http://www.change.org/petitions/songpop-bring-back-random-player-option-2?utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=url_share&utm_campaign=url_share_before_sign

    I can add my frustration and confusion to all the prior commenters. I have had the game crash on me three times in the last three weeks. I have sat without being able to play because the three potential players the game builders saw fit to allow play me were watching tv instead. And I have been stuck playing locals, which my non-native state of GA, far too frequently means Male Country is the category. So I have started my own game within a game. I go to choosing an opponent my User Name and just type in random words. They don't have to be names. You might just get an opponent whose name is just similar. Truly "random".

    @Money Penny: Firstly and above all: I think it's a fabulous idea, setting up a petition. Hats off to your initiative.

    It's just that, when I went to sign the petition, it turned out I'm required to fill in not only my email address and full name, but also in my full address. I'm really sorry, I'm too suspicious of phishing scams to fill in anything on a website asking for so much personal info. Not even false info, because they'd need my real email address to confirm. I do agree with most everything said here, but alas, I will not sign the petition. I'm sincerely sorry.

    Tom Clarke - good idea for having your username and inviting others to play.  Does anyone on this forum know of anyway to create a website for people to go in and put in their username for other players can have?  It would be something like username, type of music you play, or whatever you want to include.  I always try to see out players in the UK it is not local to me and I meet people on the other side of the world. 

    The way I see it, Random Match is not coming back anytime soon so I'd say we find a way to beat them.  I did call my credit card company and did receive my money back for VIP, they definitely know all about the scam so they were really fast about giving me the credit.  Everyone should too!!!

    Hey Chenshen, No problem. Signing a petition is completely voluntary and understand your rationale for not wanting to sign. I hope that SongPop looks at this Forum to see what is happening. 

    For those asking about where to post your user name for people to search and "add" you to the game, Facebook has so many of them.  I see a sense of real desperation from people trying to get random players this way. It just pisses me off.  I already tried it that way and got only a few responses who didn't bother to play, but you can try to search on Facebook.  Good Luck!

    Hi Money Penny, you say that Facebook has many usernames, where can I find that exactly.  I'm sorry for being ignorant but I usually play on my phone and have never actually create a game by using Facebook.  If you can tell us how to get to the user names by using our phone, that would be so awesome.  Thanks again for responding!

    I agree with everyone. I finally bought the VIP status and I like playing with random players and now suddenly I can't do that. Very frustrating. My user name is SKB77 if anyone is looking to play regularly.

    Hey Nu:  This is SongPops App page on Facebook.  I can only recommend this as one of the sites, you will find players here.  https://www.facebook.com/SongPopGame?fref=ts  you can possibly somehow copy and search through there.  I was even trying to create a free app to link up players on search but I don't really know how and I am disheartened by the lack of response by the over 1 million players to petition SongPop. If you look on that application page you can see I post everyday. I guess I'm going to give up. I hope the link works out something for the players to use.  Good Luck Players!

    Random player PLEASE!! Also, my FB friends who don't play song pop are not happy that they are now listed as players? This is new also, not right. I got the VIP membership when I was happy with songpop. Love the game but don't like the change. Username is Jackieny102 if anyone would like a new partner:)

    Money Penny Don't give up! What about setting a day when all of us do not play for 24 hours to get the point across! I like the idea of a website for putting up player's names, because I'm not on Facebook & I know others that aren't also.

    Apparently Songpop felt people were getting too much enjoyment out of the game, and they were not making enough money. It's pretty much a bait and switch.  They waited until they had a huge pool of players, and then did away with the random feature to force players to use their powerups, and therefore spend more money.

    Hey Money, I will try your link today and see if I can find players.  We all really appreciate your passion to get players together.  One of the reasons why we used to love Song Pop was the ability to play constantly without any limitations and also meet awesome people who love music.  I have not met anyone recently because my Best Matches never returned my challenges so now I have only 25 good players that actually play with me.  I have no way of getting user names who love to play.  Now, I might be able to get some from your help.  Please don't give up!  You are better than them! (songpop, that is).

    If anyone is interested in putting their usernames on a blog, let me know, I have one and I think you could use the comment section to add usernames to.Thanks Patti for the suggestions for a web page. Unfortunately, I'm pretty crappy at designing and/or HTML.  If anyone wants to you can email me at moneypenny123@hotmail.com   - but the only way this would work is if multiple/many players post their usernames.  I noted that a lot of people would complain about the change but then when informed there were places to do this, they just don't.  I certainly don't want you to waste your time.  Music is my great 1 love so this sucks donkey well...you know.

    So I've had some interest in somehow for those that don't use Facebook to find Random Usernames to find Players.  You can go to my Blog and post a comment under "I play SongPop so add me" and put your Username in the Comments section.  It's the only way that I can think of to help us find people.  Those that play will have to refer to the blog and copy usernames to paste into find players by Username.  Please note: I dont expect you to "like" my blog,it's not necessary, but can you share with Friends or other players since it will be a complete waste of time otherwise. 

    Here's the blog:  http://moneypennysplace.blogspot.ca/2013/01/i-play-songpop-so-add-me.html 

    Alternatively you can search Google for MoneyPenny's Place of Madness and Other Great Things.  I hope this helps.

    I've added a facebook page specifically for those who would like to find more players. Just post your user name and the play lists that you enjoy. This should make it much easier to find more competitors. The user name is todd.loobner. I hope this helps everyone out.

    I can't stand the new format. It is ridiculous that people can just play with players living withing their geographic area. The game was funnier with random player because I could play with people from around the world. I am very disappointed. If Song Pop does not go back to the random player format, I will just stop playing this game. Why did you mess up the game?

    Please bring back the random feature!! I used to like Songpop so much, playing against a lot of people from different countries, that I payed the Premium version. The Premium version offered you could play up to 80 matches with random players. I payed for that now it's gone. Really, people love to play a lot of games with people from another countries, just read all the comments and you'll see I'm telling the truth. Isn't all about players playing a long time and wantimg more games so they pay for the Premium version? I loved playing Songpop all the time, now I can only play a few minutes. A lot of people that were playing against me are not playing anymore, they also want the random feature back, they got bored. I got bored too, not playing anymore, found some more music apps I'm playing. I'm pretty upset for having payed for something I'm not getting, I want my money back!
