Moutain Dew Ma, I think they're just afraid you're going to trademark everything in your tracklisting, and that's just too much.

I'm here just as much to discover some great new music as anything else though.
I think everyone here is looking to discover great new music. You've got a spot.

Let MDM play. I want more competition for my eargasm-inducing playlist.

Well, okay. I did a brain dump of any songs I'd want on my mix, and put them in an iTunes playlist.

Now to pare it down from 5.1 hours to 2 hours and 40 minutes.

: rolls up sleeves and gets to work :

I'm thinking of making a playlist for Desert Island 4. They're just so much fun to make. Plus, there were a lot of absurdly wonderful bands that I missed this time.

Aargh, this is gonna be hard. Either I have to go with all upbeat songs, or all mellow songs, or do my original idea of a mixture of the two, but cut a LOT.

But I do love a challenge.

Me too.

Listen to:

Muse's "Citizen Erased"
Nancy Sinatra's "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)"
The F'lips' "Bad Days"
Miles Davis' "My Ship"
and Bruuuuuuce's "Incident on 57th Street"

in a row. Now that's an experience.

By the time Desert Island 4 happens, I'll have 3 lists and will have to make a thread to ask everyone which one they like the most.

Heck, by the time Desert Island 3 starts I might have a second finished playlist.

*Mindless rambling*

It is sort of interesting how under half the people in the first game were in the second and under half of those in this one were in this second. Is the Desert Island Game just that grueling?

I think my list is done, but I'm not going to submit it right away so I have some time to tweak it. If there's an award for most bizarre combinations, I'm pretty sure I'll win it, because I came up with a few really crazy arrangements.

I felt a lot more challenged when making this list than I was in the first game, I think because we could only choose one song per artist. That sent me digging up a lot of really good songs I'd forgotten about, especially in my jazz collection. I have no idea yet how it works thematically, but I feel like this list much better represents music that means a lot to me than my last one did.

I don't think it is...but, then again, I'm a music nerd. The eclectic quality of my playlist and my obsessive efforts to segue it together speak volumes towards that.

I'm watching This Is Spinal Tap and I have to say that if anyone's cover was of the 12 inch Stonehenge they would definitely get my vote.

Only if you want to. It's an optional inclusion.

I'm already making my tracklist for Desert Island IV.

It is optional. It would definitely make your playlist stand out if you did. It also could encapsulate the overall sound of your playlist like most great album covers do. It doesn't have to be anything impressive but it is a good thing to have.
