GAF's playlist is probably the biggest moment of love and hate at first sight I've ever had

But on second sight the track selections are actually pretty good, could make an interesting listen

Dilemma. I've just recently discovered this completely amazing song. It's gorgeous and people here would probably like it, but it's 7 minutes long ... gonna have to decide if it's worth getting rid of other songs for. Also having trouble deciding which Porcupine Tree song to use

GAF, I look forward to your list, as it'll definitely be something different for me. I very rarely listen to female vocalists.

This is hard

My dilemma is this. I'm a bit bipolar when it comes to music. I think my favourite music is sad bastard music that you sit and listen to with the lights off in the winter time. But there are so many upbeat songs from this decade that I also love. Do I make a sad bastard mix? A happy go lucky mix? Do I go the Pop route and start off with a party then get ugly? I'm sure I could make a full playlist that you can cut yourself to, but I think it should be more balanced...what to do, what to do

I sure hope so, since I used one in mine too.

usually the rule regarding live tracks is if it's commercially available that's okay. anything without an official release of some sort isn't allowed, though.

I should have participated.

GAF, part of your list makes me happy, part makes me sick. To me, that's a job well done.

Cool, that's kind of what I figured and made sure to use one from a commercial release.

Pop route ftw!

I tried to have a variety in mine ... it starts off aggressive and moves to more atmospheric and pretty stuff, then gets a little more upbeat again, then kind of sad and gorgeous at the end. I think it works, actually, though i'll probably give it at least one more listen before submitting.

but yeah, it's up to you, but I think you should try to represent your entire spectrum of taste as opposed to focusing on one mood. It's the best of the decade after all.

This was sort of my philosophy as well; I tried to have a good mix of moods and my tastes. Well, as much as I could fit into 80 minutes.

I tried to gauge what everybody else would like, regardless of my own taste, for the sake of winning an online music competition. This shit does get real.

Because after all, the internet is serious business.

Oh yeah. I'm doing everything I can to get into a good grad school ... I think winning a playlist competition on a U2 fansite would really set my application apart. That's why I just picked songs that were on Interference's top album list or whatever.
