We can have a nightly listening party of a list or something. Kind of like what Axver did to my list, but... different. Hopefully.
Don't get your hopes up unless you suddenly turn your playlist into a prog/post-rock/death metal haven.

I'm kind of frustrated that I can't include A Day in the Life because the crowd noise at the beginning would disrupt the flow.

I was hoping if more than one person listens in, then he'd be outnumbered and forced to pretend to like it.

I've got a This Will Destroy You track on there and Summer '68, maybe he'll like those?

About crowd noise, I've got a track on mine with that, too. Fuck it, it's a good enough track as it is.

Nope, just DI.

Oh, he'll definitely love the Summer '68 inclusion. I'm not sure if he's listened to This Will Destroy You, but I'd bet he'd like it.

You just can't bring the funk as much.

exactly. i mean, they're hits for a reason. but of course there's overlooked gems that weren't singles for most artists.

and concepts are great, i had one for this tournament, but i don't think they're necessary.

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.
A spreadsheet? You nerd.

If the concept's simple and done well, it can really add to the list, but if it's ridiculous, then it comes off as contrived and saccharine. I liked yours and Philly's this time around.

Phanan, your concept was by far my favorite.

I think the key is that I wrote my playlist concept to the chosen songs. I didn't chose songs for the concept. The concept came after.

Oh yes, that was a killer concept, wasn't it?

Hey, I thought the Lobot screenshots were worth a thousand words myself.

I loved the mood of Khan's playlist. While I haven't done anything for the next tournament, it's kind of inspiring me to possibly go that route in some fashion.

I think we almost made Screwy's head explode in our round.

Lobot for the motherfucking win. It'll compliment my Billy Dee Williams / Colt .45 cover for my DI V list.

Yeah, that was what made it so damn good. I think Khan's, Screwy's, L-Mel's, and yours were the bests at that last time around.

I have the last two playlists I did on Word documents, and how they evolved from the start to the end. So you're not the only one.
