Best Of 2000s - Desert Island Spinoff Tournament IV

By popular demand, it's time for another DI mini-tournament. With the decade coming to a close, it was suggested by AtomicBono that we have a "Best Of 2000s" competition. We are going to try something new this time, and if successful, it could be incorporated into regular DI tournaments. Here's what we'll do:

Players will create a playlist of no more than 80 minutes in length comprising their favorite songs of the decade. Any song with an original release date between January 1, 2000 and December 31, 2009 is eligible. This does not include re-releases of songs previously available before this decade, only new recordings. As always with the mini-tournaments, songs used in prior DIs are allowed. Only one song per artist, however.

All playlists will be due to me by October 7, and shortly after, the Master List thread will be created. Submissions can be sent via PM.

Everyone will have an as-yet undetermined time frame to listen to each playlist, and by a specific date, will need to provide me with a ranking of all the playlists (specific dates will be in the Master List thread). I will calculate the totals and post them in the Results thread, along with each player's individual ranking.

Cover art and details for your playlist are optional. In lieu of a running diary thread, players can leave comments within the Master List thread if they so desire. It is also encouraged to include a commentary of your thoughts when submitting your playlist ranking.

We'll go with 16 spots for now and see what the turnout is. It sounds like we may have over half of that total already, but let's do a roll call to be certain.

Throw me in there for now. This weekend might end up being a good time for me to do this.

Making playlists.

Space Moon didn't bomb. Its orbit just got so ridiculously crazy from all the rocking the fuck out that we don't know its whereabouts right now. Someone call the Hubble crew.

But we hadn't even started to rock the fuck out yet!

To be fair, we never really stopped from the last go-around.

Already have a list done. I'll be stunned if at least half of my artists aren't the same as Impy's.

My cover?
