The chat thing is cool with me. I just hate the applications that don't do anything on Facebook.

Must admit, that's a bit of a confusing format you've got going there.

It's a combination of Screwtape's idea and mine. Mine was to totally stick to the original format. He wanted something that would involve more people because he guessed there'd be low voter turnout. So, we created a hybrid.

The field of 64 idea is great and should have been used on Rest of U2 survivor. One Tree Hill against Luminous Times. Treasure vs. All I Want Is You. Could you imagine the awesomeness of that?

Yeah, but what happens to the winners of each album? I've just seen vague references to some "March Madness" format, whatever the hell that is.

My question is how we pick the actual match-ups once we have 64.

i just almost split my sides laughing, one of my best friends lives next door to me and her boyfriend recently (after like 3 months) figured out how to get her to come...so i'm sitting in my room with my door open, they're in hers with the door closed, and all of a sudden i hear her moaning, and when i say moaning i mean "squeeking like a seal."

We take the winners and rank them based on how well that album was voted on in the first thread. So for example the song from David Bowie's self-titled album would have a lower seed because that album didn't get many votes. It would go against something from Ziggy Stardust or Low which had the highest vote totals.

I think we should do it based on how well an album. So Low and Ziggy as the top vote getters will take the top three seeds with their 12 combined songs. So on. Where there is a tie we seed based on who many votes that song was voted in by. I think it is a simple solution.

Now I'm just even more confused.

So, I'm gathering by the way you're talking that these 64 songs are going into 32 head-to-head match-ups? Then the 32 winners into 16 head-to-head match-ups, and so on?

Sorry guys, but that's a daft idea.
