Usually, I listen to the playlists, rank them, and then pick the songs I want to keep, deleting the rest.

Reggo's is the only playlist that I put on my iPod as a whole. That's the only way it makes sense and it's chilling when it does. Incredible job.

Bit of a bummer to see these lists this low, I had both ranked much higher.

Had your playlist ended with Please, Reggo, it would have been #1. despite the fact I won't listen to many of these songs again it was very good.

You have a weird sense of humor, Reggo. .wink:

probably my only complaint about Reggo's list is it went on a bit too long with no real breathing room/sound change. But it was quite an interesting list.

I am humbled.

And yes, Traviud, I do. How long have you known me?

Except for that totally out-of-place Green Day song.

Honestly though, I think a sound change or breathing room would've actually weakened Reggo's list.

9. Joey788

Total Points: 110

Highest Ranking: 1st
Lowest Ranking: 13th



IN CHANGING TIMES

Part 1: Kids (41:13)
01. The White Stripes – “We’re Going to be Friends” – White Blood Cells (2:22)
02. Arcade Fire – “Ready To Start” – The Suburbs (4:16)
03. Best Coast – “Boyfriend” – Crazy For You (2:30)
04. She & Him – “Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?” – Volume One (2:31)
05. The Duke Spirit – “You Really Wake Up The Love In Me” – Neptune (2:42)
06. Peter Bjorn And John – “Young Folks” – Writer’s Block (4:39)
07. Wilco – “I’m Always In Love” – Summerteeth (3:43)
08. Muse – “Invincible” – Black Holes and Revelations (5:01)
09. Metric – “Twilight Galaxy” – Fantasies (4:54)
10. Coldplay – “Shiver” – Parachutes (5:02)
11. Yeah Yeah Yeahs – “Maps” – Fever To Tell (3:40)
This part is all about falling in love for the first time. I envisioned it as a young boy and girl meeting each other in school and becoming friends. Then, years later, the feelings have started to blossom into high school romance. They chase after each other and eventually become a couple. While everything appears to be perfect, the beginning of cracks are starting to form towards the end of the set.

Part 2: Losing Direction (47:42)
01. The Verve – “Love Is Noise” – Forth (5:29)
02. The Beatles – “For No One” – Revolver (2:03)
03. Danger Mouse & Sparklehorse – “Everytime I’m With You” – Dark Night of the Soul (3:10)
04. Bat for Lashes – “Siren Song” – Two Suns (4:58)
05. The National – “Conversation 16” – High Violet (4:19)
06. Garbage – “Stupid Girl” – Garbage (4:19)
07. Tegan & Sara – “Are You Ten Years Ago” – The Con (3:18)
08. The Smashing Pumpkins – “The Beginning is the End of the Beginning” – Rarities and B-Sides (5:02)
09. Emilie Autumn – “I Know Where You Sleep” – Opheliac (3:13)
10. Nine Inch Nails – “Eraser” – The Downward Spiral (4:54)
11. How to Destroy Angels – “A Drowning” – How To Destroy Angels (7:03)
The cracks are forming and there are huge problems in their relationship. Maybe they fell in love too fast. Maybe one needs too much from the other or they just can’t communicate. In any case, this is where everything falls apart. The songs represent a building array of emotions, including frustration, cynicism, self-loathing, outward rage, and finally sadness.

Part 3: Return Home (46:20)
01. Passengers – “Slug” – Original Soundtracks 1 (4:38)
02. Radiohead – “Bullet Proof…I Wish I Was” – The Bends (3:29)
03. Paramore – “The Only Exception” – Brand New Eyes (4:28)
04. Elbow – “The Bones of You” – The Seldom Seen Kid (4:49)
05. Depeche Mode – “Come Back” – Sounds of the Universe (5:16)
06. Florence & The Machine – “Cosmic Love” – Lungs (4:16)
07. Ra Ra Riot – “You and I Know” – The Orchard (4:35)
08. Linkin Park – “The Messenger” – A Thousand Suns (3:02)
09. St. Vincent – “Just The Same But Brand New” – Actor (5:24)
10. U2 – “All I Want Is You” – Rattle and Hum (6:30)
The final part takes place a few years later. By this time, both the man and woman have grown up and go through some self-reflection. Chance meetings lead to the realization that the feelings are still there. While both are cautious at trying what failed before, they overcome their insecurities and come back together, this time refusing to let their baggage weigh them down.

TOTAL RUNTIME: 2:15:15

Exactly, so I wish it'd been just a tad shorter.
