well i've narrowed my selections down to 50-some artists this is going to be difficult. And I'm trying to decide if I should do a two-disc collection, one which is more upbeat/rocking and the other being more mellow/atmospheric, or if I should just go for one cohesive playlist...
Thank you.

the 2 CD idea sounds better, maybe like a Fire / Ice type of thing.

Whatever you can do to make your playlist as "you" as possible, go for it.

That's dangerous ... no one wants to hear 2 CDs worth of karaoke tracks.

Unless you're me.

am i allowed to use don't panic even though you've used it before? because it really is one of my favourite songs ever. I love a lot of Coldplay songs but none of the others come close in my mind...it has personal meaning to me. and it's just so goddamn beautiful. what a tune.

I've almost put Sweet Caroline on every playlist so far.

Gotta represent The Diamond, guys.

oh yeah, you're totally able to. you can use songs anyone else has used/is using, the only restriction is if YOU YOURSELF have participated in a previous contest.

I would play the guitar on the tracks instead

the songs have to be officially released right? cuz one of my favourite songs is by my dad, but he never had a record deal or anything.

Yes, you're only not allowed to use songs YOU haven't used before, and as you're new to the game, then you don't even have to worry about that rule.

Edit: Damn, LMP beat me to it. And yes, tracks have to be officially released in some context by the band/artist.

And maybe you need to try harder with your lectures, because I remain completely unconvinced by your stance. Especially unconvinced after having Kelly fucking Clarkson's "since you've been gone" song stuck in my head for three fucking days. DAMN YOU, EARLY MORNING KIWI RADIO, DAMN YOU!

Lila, I will spare you my lecture on how Pink, Christina Aguilera and Robbie Williams are not crap.

(for the record, I do not own any 50 Cent. Or N'Sync. )
I will only relent on Pink (Get the Party Started), and a couple of Christina Aguilera songs (Ain't No Other Man). I still don't own them, but Maddy has the latter on her iTunes. You can lecture Axver all you want

LMP - that was back in the old days when you could have more than one song by a band. I'm supposed to pick just one U2 song? One Beatles? Come on now!

But you said them in plain English. I somehow manage to chew it up and spit it back out.

Also, if anyone puts "Hide and Seek" by Imogen Heap on their playlist, they will be my hero.

"MMMM WHAT YOU SAY?"

Trust me, you'll love this rule more as you go to make your playlist.

I think I have a U2 version of that song somewhere (maybe more like a snippet)

Honestly, nowadays, I don't know how I could fit two songs by any band on a tracklist. I have a hard time fitting even one sometimes!

I wondering whether the newcomers should represent one half of the bracket so that they can be sure to send someone to the final or have mixed brackets. What do you all think?

well being a newcomer myself, i like the first idea But you could go either way really, I mean, it shouldn't be about whether you've played the game or not before, it's about the tracklist itself.
