For me, I've made playlists of songs I loved, this time I made one with a concept in mind plus songs I love. It's a win-win, hopefully you all feel the same way.
That's why I feel this is your best playlist. I think the concept created a tight experience. When you really push for something different you create your best work. Axver, Phanan and a couple others made their best playlists this time because the concepts are so good. Maybe it is that sense of fearlessness that we're missing in this game. Luckily, the next one is going to be a return to that.

Thanks.

Fearlessness can only get you so far, the two most fearless lists in the tourney, for me, got hosed in the last 2 heats.

Agreed. AB and Bono's Lemon had some balls for using some of those songs (just like Khan with Since U Been Gone ).

I've got to say, I really don't understand what the big deal is with putting a concept together. It's one thing when an artist makes a concept album; the concept affects the lyrical content, but with a concept playlist, it just doesn't really heighten the experience all that much for me. A crappy song is still a crappy song, no matter the context.

LemonMelon, no offence, but your last couple of posts are complete bullshit. I'm not sure I can even be bothered refuting them.

True, but it is interesting to see someone try and make a real concept album using songs from different artists.

Now should that be taken with more than a grain of salt than anything else? That's up to the voter.

Don't bother. There's no way to refute taste, and that's all this is. It's like someone saying Puddle Of Mudd is their favorite band. They may be an idiot, but it's still not possible to argue with them over it.

I just really wish you would have the tact to present your own point and listen to someone else's without such a rude tone.

You're the one who's calling people "safe" based upon the flimsiest of logic.

Calling your playlist "safe" is just what I meant it to be: a comment I made based on my own taste and viewpoint. I gave my reasons for making that comment in hopes that you would find them constructive, and that's it. I never said your taste is BS and you're a total failure when it comes to making playlists...and then proceeded to run over your dog. There's a huge difference.

And this is music, man. Logic doesn't apply to taste.

A rousing discussion involving fun, safety, crap, delicate baby feelings, n00bs and the c-word.

Maybe you should play this game with just the "veterans" then. Don't invite "noobs" in and then insult their taste.
