I loved it straight away. Actually, as soon as I heard it, I thought it fit well in a DI playlist I've got half-made. I don't know if the playlist will ever turn into something I'll actually submit, but I make a number of these just for my own enjoyment.

I always thought that REM Survivor should have followed Pink Floyd.

And whatever's happened to the Bowie Survivor?

I thought about organizing one, but I got so sick of doing that last U2 one that I thought better of it.

Besides, I bet some non-diehards would just come in and something horrible like Everybody Hurts would win, and I'd have to kill someone.

I'm so thankful Comfortably Numb did not win Pink Floyd Survivor. I mean, sure, Time isn't exactly obscurity, but CN would've been so predictable that it would have made the tournament a waste of time. Just like nobody needs a One vs Streets final in U2 Survivor.

Personally, I'd nominate Feeling Gravity's Pull as REM's best song.

Comfortably Numb is the only PF song I like.

Led Zeppelin is almost done, so perhaps it can go next.

No idea on Bowie.

Comfortably Numb sickens me.

Where did Us and Them end up?

I like Everybody Hurts, despite it being overplayed to death, but I wouldn't want it to win, either.

Well, with PF we did a straight one song per each album, and Time won for DSOTM (and ultimately won the whole thing).

PF should have used the weighted system.

The DSOTM final was Time vs Us And Them.

Personally, I think Comfortably Numb is the best track on The Wall, but by no means would it be in my PF Top 20.

Yeah, I think an REM Survivor would get really good participation. I'd certainly enjoy it.

And we should do a small-scale Porcupine Tree Survivor like we discussed a while back.

I like the version with Van Morrison and Roger Waters.

Agreed entirely. The absence of SOYCD I-V in the final was criminal.

Not like that'd really mean anything, though.
