Congratulations to those that made it through. We'll be back on Monday afternoon for round 1 of the first ever Desert Island Survivor. At 3 days per poll, we'll have our overall winner in a month.
At least this way there's a set deadline. One reason I prefer polls. No fluidity.

About a month ago, YLB was curious to know how many short lists (let's define them as <100 minutes) went through. Let's do the math.

First of all, the overall number of <100 minute lists was higher than ever, with 9 lists of that length being submitted vs. 11 lists of 100 minutes or greater. This is a big change from the norm.

Performance-wise though, not so great at this point. Only 2 out of 9 shorter lists (Liam and LJT) made it through to the finals (22%). If the overall odds of a shorter list making it through is 9/20 or 45%, that's very poor. Longer lists had an 11/20 or 55% chance of being represented and 8/11 (73%) made it through.

So while contestants are more likely than ever to make shorter lists, voters still tend to prefer longer lists, though list length itself probably has a relatively small impact on that.

Congrats to those going through. Neils and LMP, for whatever it's worth, you had my favorite playlists. Shame neither of them are moving on.

Yours is another I'm sad to see didn't go through. You did something really cool and I loved it a lot.

Let's blame Glenn Miller

I acknowledge that it's at least partially my fault that LMP wasn't around to vote. That really fucked him over in the end.

Then again, if I know his music taste, he would have loved Bonnie's list and the result may have ended up the same.

Def bummed about YLB as well, and namkcuR's all-female extravaganza. But by not voting they did kind of dig their own graves.

Regardless, and not to sound cheesy, but the real reward is getting to expose people to music they didn't know, and provide a pleasurable and/or interesting listening experience. I think everyone succeeded in that way to one extent or another.

So, bravo and thanks to all.

Indeed.

Well done everyone.

How will the survivor match-ups be determined?

I think a sign of a successful playlist to me is that it gets even one participant into an artist they hadn't heard of before, I'm not too concerned about points.

No matchups, it's a survivor like all the others we've done. 10 to 1, vote for your least favorite until it's out.

As far as I'm concerned, you succeeded here. Lots of great stuff I hadn't heard before on your list.

Right, I spaced that.

This format seems pretty brutal. Like watching people ganging up on your list to get rid of it.
