Why not divide your 64 songs into eight groups of eight? It avoids the sudden death issues.
I had thought you'd compared it to the DI playlist groups.

What "issues" are there with sudden death?

Is this current song from the new album? I sort of like it.

hmm, it is a tough call, isn't it? see my name has 3 letters, so either way requires the same amount of effort. except for the days when i forget my middle name.

I listened to the first half of it today. It's pretty good. Not up there with most of his 70s stuff, but a good album, and a very good flow and concept.

I think it is second only to Ziggy as his best album.

if it's the one that's still on now, yes. the one that's on now is falling down, not sure if that's what was on when you posted.

The one called Skins something. This isn't too bad either. When does it come out?

I compared it to DI only in the sense that in DI, we have to a point moved away from sudden death because we agree it doesn't work.

Grouping songs like in Survivor as it currently operates gives all but one song at least two chances. Basically, compare eight songs in a group of eight to eight songs in four sudden death match-ups. In the former, only one song doesn't get a second chance. In the latter, four songs are cut just like that.

true. for me, my name is longer. but not by much. katie...mcd...both require minimal amounts of effort. i think i'll stick with mcd since they can also be used as roman numerals and the company i work for is changing its name BACK to our old roman name we used pre-merger. you know, to celebrate. or something.

Really? I don't think I have a preference. I really like the song no matter what version. It should've made the album.
