I wonder if this means you now have to have not only a U2 song but a cover of another U2 song to get a lot of people's votes.

Thanks for reminding me! I'll have Phil era Genesis and Phil Collins both on my list then!

of course, they're probably my second favourite band

right now I've got Pioneers on there. There are more upbeat songs that I could have gone with (Hunting for Witches ), but Pioneers is my absolute favourite and the transition after Tool's Parabola is perfect because Parabola ends on harmonics and then Pioneers starts with them

You know, this one song per artist rule sucks! I don't understand why it has to be only one per artist. Isn't it supposed to be whatever we're taking with us to a deserted island? And if we want 2 songs from the Beatles on it, so what?

As I've said before, if you think of this album as a mixtape, then that rule makes a lot more sense. If you're making a mix for someone, do you usually load it with a lot from one artist? I know I'd want it to be a sampler of my tastes to someone else, which is what this contest in essense really is, at least in my estimation.

Mike's entry, oh my God.

The rule was put in place because in the first game there would be a couple artists that were featured four or more times on a playlist. Some lists went even further *cough* Liamcool *cough*. When a person is limited to one song per artist it makes their list more diverse and a lot better. I wasn't around for the first game but I'm sure anyone who was would tell you that the lists in the second game really improved because of this rule.

I like the one artist rule...because if it was simply a mix of my favourite songs, half of my playlist would be the album Pop

but seriously there were so many songs I wanted to include that I'm glad that rule exists...seriously when I made my list of all the songs I wanted I had over 60 artists

Oh okay. I just can't open the album with Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane now.

LMP, I'm dying to know what was on Mike's list!

Oh me too, but the samples he put up were still hilarious.

R2-DICK2.

I'd like to see him really compete though.

For all the excitement that surrounded the last game and the overflow of people wanting to play, the fact that the list hasn't filled up in almost a day is...disappointing, to say the least. The fact that only 9 if the 24 contestants in the last game are signed up is also a bit disappointing. There were a lot of playlists that were really going somewhere different. A lot of those people aren't signed up. I mean where is everybody from DI2?

there's no reason to exclude me just because you don't like me
