I know I reuse at least 10-15 artists each time, but it's hard not to because they're my favorites. It rely lies on what songs you pick from them, like Bowie for example. In 4 lists, you could have 4 radically different Bowie tracks... but you shouldn't be penalized for wanting to use "Heroes," for example, arguably one of his more popular, but fucking amazing tunes.
I re-used Sting (will not again, those were the only two tracks I liked from that album), The Police, U2 (Heartland and Zooropa), Springsteen (4th of July and Devil's Arcade), EITS, RHCP, Franz Ferdinand, The Beatles, and Led Zeppelin.

Bowie will become a regular, too. I imagine if Pink Floyd goes well, they will also.

I almost had them on mine, but I had to cut them due to time constraints.

Oh, I agree with this, too. Especially when you have an artist with such a huge back catalog. There's nothing wrong with that at all. You'll always see Springsteen and PT on my lists for that very reason. I just try to mix it up some times with other artists. For example, I kept Radiohead off this time, but they'll be back obviously.

And I don't penalize people for using well known tracks, either. If it works within the flow of the playlist, and I like the song, hell yes I'm going to enjoy it.

Someone criticized my using of Postal Service's Such Great Heights last time out, as it is the most known song on that album. I didn't care, because musically it worked the best in the spot I had for it. I didn't even give its status as best known song a second thought. That's not the point, to me anyway.

yeah, i don't see what's wrong with recycling artists, as long as each time the overall sound is different. i know i'm guilty of this too, so i definitely can't bitch at someone for using the same five or whatever artists everytime.

Hasn't happened. Most people are pretty good at asking ahead of time if they think something may or may not be used. And now that I'm running it, I'm fairly lenient on questionable things, anyway.

yeah, see, that's just stupid. like you said, it worked. that's all that matters. like, if someone wants to put streets or beautiful day on their playlist, as long as it works, i wouldn't mark them off for it. i don't give a shit how popular or obscure the artists or songs used are. what matters to me is how well everything works in the grand scheme of things.

No one should bitch about recycling artists after the forum created the unwritten must use U2 rule in every playlist.

Damn skippy. I used Such Great Heights on my first list - what a brilliant song.

I'm glad we're all discussing this, but I hate how some of the elaborate grading and criticisms prevent this from being as fun as it should be, you know?

But this has been fun so far and I hope it continues to get better.

Well, the constructive criticism shouldn't prevent this from being fun. It's all about hearing what others have to say - to get a different vantage point on something. You may not agree with that person, but hopefully at least you'll understand where they are coming from.

Hell, half the fun is seeing Axver's reaction to some of these playlists.

lol yeah, i don't remember any real specifics since it was so long ago and i didn't participate (i don't think i found the thread until all spots were filled) but it's just as well. my playlist would've SUCKED without that artist restriction rule. 10 split enz songs? sure!

yeah, his playlists were good iirc.

I agree, constructive criticism makes it all worth it, but there's some who leave out the constructive part.

Axver's reactions to the "crappy music" kills me every time. I still don't understand how someone can't like The Funk.
