Yeah, now I just wish I had the know-how to make the thing, contacts to sign bands, and money to bankroll it!

phanan, that song Atlas - Battles in your list...

Otherwise I liked your list overall.

I'm shocked.

With the group I was in, I never thought I'd get back to the final.

And then Lara beats LMP in what I consider to be an upset.

Wow.

Yeah, with Battles you either really like it, or you don't know what the hell to make of it.

But it's unique, you have to admit.

Your tracklist is fucking awesome, though. I'm glad others saw that.

If I'm honest, I think Lara benefited from what I benefited in DI II - a favourable run to the final. That isn't to say she was "lucky" or had weaker opposition, but that any other route would have spelled defeat. I think our other finalists have always been people who would have won no matter what route they had taken to the final.

Question for the PT fans: what do you think is the band's most beautiful song?

I'm having a hell of a time choosing one for my "Beautiful Island" DI V submission. Half Light is currently on the list but I don't feel confident in that inclusion.

It is either Moon Touches Your Shoulder or Stop Swimming. I really can't say one is better than the other.

Man, that's really a tough one.

The Rest Will Flow and Lazarus immediately come to mind, but then earlier stuff like Fadeaway is beautiful in its own way.

That reminds me. The song is called The Moon Touches Your Shoulder. I also noticed on your DI list that you used SOYCD I-VII, not I-V as the tracklist said.

/2:30amsleepdeprivednitpick

The Moon Touches Your Shoulder is definitely one I'm considering. I'm not going to use Stop Swimming, as it's fairly depressing and that's not at all the mood I'm going for. Maybe I should do something radical and not use a PT song at all! SW's already there twice anyway - not that you hear his voice on either track and it'll be interesting to see if anyone guesses which are the SW tracks.

I'm glad you enjoyed it.

True, the way the matchups come up really play an important role. That's why I drew names for each group, so there was no known advantage for anyone ahead of time.
