About 2/3 of the songs are the same and its got the same basic structure.

Decided on no Astley track though, mainly because I used the lead-in track in the Symphonic Album track.

At first I was surprised with Axver, but then I realized that while his playlists are diverse because he uses artists that a lot of us don't use, he does repeat quite a few of them - hence the lower diversity score.
uh oh, is mine worse than him? have you figured out what mine is

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. His lists delve pretty well into a specific genre of music and like you said, stick out from the rest of the lists, but they don't vary as often. As long as he keeps churning out stuff he likes, then it's all good.

Never feel silly when you have the chance to Rickroll Interference. If anything, you're making the experience and soundscape of your list more memorable. Your concept may be lacking, however.

Phanan, what did you think of my "separate DI discussion thread in OOC" idea for the next tourney?

i mean, concepts and all aside, the whole point of this thing was supposed to be music you'd bring with you on a desert island. if that's what he likes, that's what he likes.

and things like pfan using a "greatest hits" kind of thing, i think we'd all be a little hard pressed to not throw in some hits by well-known people if we were making two cds that we'd be listening to the rest of our lives.

Nowhere near Axver actually:

95 songs, 64 different artists used = 67.3%

I'm doing this for everyone who has participated in at least three tournaments, btw.

Exactly.

There's a growing disparity between newbie lists and vet lists because the vets have used so many of their favorite songs already, so they've gotta keep doing something new each time.

The problem with that is, some stray from the original idea of the tourney and don't allow newbies the chance to succeed, you know?

I might still be a crybaby next time around, but it's worth a shot.

I'm glad you approve.

We can have a nightly listening party of a list or something. Kind of like what Axver did to my list, but... different. Hopefully.

wow, i'm geniunely surprised. i figured my total would be in the 50s.

i actually made myself a spreadsheet at home to keep track of what songs i used when, mainly so i wouldn't use the same songs and risk being disqualified. i wouldn't want to get a playlist done, submit it, and find out after the competition started i'd used a song in the third one or something. which i mean, i wouldn't be pissed if someone pointed it out. i always check that stuff out on my end (for my list i mean), so i'd be like "shit, how did i miss that."

anyway, i think i might look and see what it'd become if i were to submit the fifth list as is.

Thank God I've only participated twice and don't have my percentage listed.

Agreed. While there are artists that have plenty of incredible songs that weren't hits, like the Stones and Beatles, for others you are most likely going to have some sort of hit single involved. And there is nothing wrong with that - if it's one of the best songs from that artist, then it should be that way.

I don't think mini-tourneys factor into the actual DI stats.
