Okay. I liked the Ryan Adams song quite a bit. And I Wanna Be Adored is a classic. The next few songs didn't make strong impressions on me one way or another. They weren't bad, but they didn't stand out, though I've been told many times to listen to Japandroids. The vocalist from Frightened Rabbit sure has a thick accent! Oh, yeah, and people might hang me, but I don't like Morrissey's voice, but it went well with the Interpol track. I'd never heard Gotye, but the song was alright. Dion->the end of the list was pretty excellent. Usually I haven't cared much for LCD Soundsystem, but I liked that one. The guitar near the end felt like a Dear Prudence shoutout for sure. The U2 remix was interesting, for sure, too. Better than a lot of them.

and now i have finished with gaffer tape's list.

i expect it to feature in the higher realms of my rankings.

i am nowhere near the fan of Lady Gaga as a great proportion of this forum seems to be, so while i'll admit Bad Romance is catchy, it's not the music i'm into. you then followed that up with hands down one of the very best songs of last decade with B.O.B., and the rest of day one was pretty great.

like Andrew i've never cared much for REM outside of thinking they're an ok band. Life on Mars? is just one of the best songs ever, in my opinion. I Don't Like Mondays i've heard too many times on golden oldies radio to say i enjoyed, the same with that Supergrass song. Lost! is fantastic, and i was, i have to say, a fan of Ghetto Gospel.

day three was pretty great as well, some great choices given i'd heard none of them before. Off He Goes was terrific, the Bob Dylan track was one of the better i've heard of his. surprised to see Fountains of Wayne in there, i sincerely thought they were just a one-hit wonder. i wouldn't myself however call the Blur song great.

nice job

Still waiting for the following to send in their rankings:

AtomicBono
bono_212
cobl04
Cute Irish Bono
Imperor
Joey788
liamcool
Mr. V
namkcuR
NSW
The Sad Punk

Need them ASAP please.

The only people that I truly am unsure of their status is AB, namkcuR, and CIB, as they haven't been on Interference lately. Everyone else has at least been around (or is in contact through others) and therefore should be well informed.

alrighty... done with the V Man's list.

to be honest i don't think there was a song i could say i disliked. it all went terrifically well together, and there were a lot of slight similarities in artists that were grouped together which i thought was really cool. (i was so pleased with myself when i said i bet the Los Camp! song is next, during the Japandroids song).

i've never been a White Stripes or an Arctic Monkeys fan but enjoyed both, loved the Wild Beasts song, and the interlude part of the JT track was awesome. The Chamber > Are You a Hypnotist?? was seamless, and from pretty much Stone Roses on it was really great. very strong finish with the last four, though i was expecting better when i saw my boys Hot Chip had remixed COBL.

and now to rank

Yeah, it was very difficult to rank these. And it seems that it was that way for most people, because as of right now, there are SEVEN players who can win this thing. That's how close it is.

Which is why it is very important that I get everyone's rankings in ASAP. It's going to have a major impact on the final standings.

Apparently Lemonmelon forgot to attach my list to his pm, and he just now realized this. So...hang on one second and it'll be there.

Which is why I waited so long to send Ashley's in; everybody loves a last minute deus ex machina. Just look at Hollywood.
