Obviously that plays a part, but the other benefit with DI is hearing stuff you aren't familiar with, which in turn gets you interested in hearing more from an artist you otherwise wouldn't have known about.

And then, of course, hearing songs you didn't know previously would alter how you look at someone's playlist.

Hmm that's an interesting point. Expanding our musical pallette and all... but one must also have the time to listen to so many playlists! lol. Anyway, nice concept.

Provided you like those songs on first listen itself! Many songs are growers though. And after you listen to a whole playlist, you may still find yourself liking only the songs you already knew. But I guess it all depends.

I hope you take part LMS, it is really good. I've come across several artists through Desert Island. I wouldn't be a fan of Tom Waits, otherwise, for example.

I'll do this if it's the classic Desert Island with long playlists.

Let's keep it flexible please, like LemonMelon suggested. Anything goes. Single disc or Double disc!

I'm tempted to take part in this...

My playlist is a tribute to youth, love, mortality and the open road entitled FREEDOM ROCK.

Mine is about America's fear of the female orgasm.

Please ensure your lists have a book-length textual component.

I haven't participated in this since...2008, I think. I might join, but I don't know if I can commit the time right now.

Mine has been mostly set for about a year, with some slight tweaking as I find better songs that fit. I'm looking forward to this starting up again.
