Regarding the playlists themselves, I think for this specific edition, the emphasis should be on the songs, because we are looking for what you think really are the best ones from the decade. If they go together well and everything, that's a bonus, but I wouldn't be too concerned about how it is structured and sequenced. That's more for regular DI.

I'm done. It's 50 seconds over the limit. I could easily bring it back within the limit by just replacing one song. But I really don't want to because it would require replacing the best song on the album by one that is good but not the best. Phanan, wot say?

Hmm. This was not really my approach at all, but oh well. I ended up picking songs that fit well together from what I think are the best artists/albums of the decade. It's definitely going to be interesting to see what everybody's come up with, especially if we're going to be coming at it from a lot of different angles.

My first list is like that and I felt it helped a lot. I mean at first I had a 3 hour list but then I narrowed it down by picking songs that would go well together in my opinion. Except for several songs that have to be there regardless

Gonna have to get it under 80 minutes Zoots, just so everyone has the same parameters to work with.

That's fine. In the end, it's really however you want it to be.

Okay, sounds good.

As for my list, I started out like this:

And ended up changing it to:

And I have to say that I'm pretty satisfied that I included more of my favourite songs of the decade and also somewhat ensured that at least the flow from one song to the other is not jarring, even if it is not the greatest transition. You try to have your cake and eat it too.

Yeah, that's exactly how mine started out too.

Obviously. I really am looking forward to seeing how everybody took on the massive task though.

Probably. I was coming into it expecting such a thing to happen.

Well if I should be going with the best possible songs I can, I'm going to need to switch this up. My current list can be my director's cut. No one is going to appreciate "Treefingers" as the first track anyway.

I fucking love Treefingers and never skip it on Kid A. But I don't know about using it as opener.

It works perfectly with the second song, for what it's worth. Sets the tone quite well. But I'm using a lot of instrumental interludes, some as long as "Treefingers" and some as long as 35 seconds.

The big problem now is that there is such a deliberate tempo to my list, so the four people who listen to it probably will turn it off.
