I'd be interested in how everyone puts their tracklists together. It'd be an interesting insight to the creative process. For me:

DI I: "Here's some songs I like with a semblance of flow whee!"
DI II: I quite consciously wanted to subvert and disprove stereotypes about some kinds of music and to make an accessible, welcoming compilation, so I went through and chose songs that I felt fit the bill.
DI III: This started as a simple exercise in giving some much-needed exposure to overlooked Kiwi music. I went through and picked some of the best songs I could from the country. It was amazing how, as I proceeded, it effortlessly developed into a concept.
DI IV: I'm not even entirely sure how this came together. I was in a dark place at the time. I started with the final three tracks and fleshed out things from there.
Tentative DI V: Throwing together the most beautiful songs I have and seeing what happens.
DI3 - "Huhuhuhuh...I like this song. And this one too."

DI4 - I just wanted to make a summery playlist, so I dug up one song after another that fit the bill, and the storyline just showed up by accident.

DI5 - Just the idea for a fake playlist is the best thing ever, so here we are.

Let me say something here, LM. After listening to your tracklist, I thought it was the middle of fucking January again (er ... July for you). I was wondering why I wasn't dying of heat exhaustion, why it wasn't my birthday tomorrow, and why I was in uni. I mean, it was summer all around me!... oh, wait, it's just autumn, never mind.

In other words, nice job there.

No, that would require going there to get the link.

Honestly, some of the bashing of Alex Descends and Passengers and the like around these parts is rather depressing. Especially because you know that's the opinions U2 are listening to now.

I believe they have it in them to create another incredibly captivating and artistic album. They just choose not to.

Thanks. It's particularly noticeable in the first 8 tracks or so. It's turns to autumn in the latter tracks.

I swear to all the non-existent Gods in human history, I really hope you go through with this and submit it.

Bottoms being eliminated was a shame to me. That's a truly great remix, but no one has a clue what the hell it is on first glance. Lady With The Spinning Head will win that category without breaking a sweat.

Yeah, at about track ten, I was thinking it'd be really funny if you suddenly threw some death metal or something in there, just to fuck with people as it was so richly summery.

I liked how you ended it.

Don't you worry about that. I love recording, and the feedback for it has been great so far. No way I turn it down.

Now Phanan, yeah, he may turn it down. Let's hope for the best on that front.

Agreed. I'm surprised it went out so fast. It's probably U2's catchiest instrumental. Great fun.

I hope LWTSH doesn't win. I mean, I like LWTSH a whole lot, but that's just such a boring and predictable result. Onya, Alex Descends. Go the underdog!

Hopefully my position as the person who ran the first three tournaments holds some weight. Even if I thought this were the stupidest idea ever, if this had been submitted in the first three tournaments, I would have felt obligated to permit it as all the music would have been made officially available (I believe you said you're doing MySpace pages? That's always been considered good enough; Pure Reason Revolution's MySpace-only single, Victorious Cupid, has been used in the past).

I genuinely enjoyed those first two tracks and I'm looking forward to hearing more of them.

OK, folks, I must sleep. It's far too late and my sleeping schedule is fucked. Goodnight.

No wonder the fake list is filled with epic prog-metal. I just got so very bored listening to my own list over and over.

I'm writing a short story about a mouse who saves a fictional kingdom from the evil Fire Witch. That gives you an idea of what I'm going for lyrically.

The Pure Reason Revolution track was myspace-only? That's definitely good news for me. I'm surprised that it took anyone this long to do the fake list thing.

Oh, and night Ax.
