Haha, I've used it in jest before, like I'm doing now.

When I get supercereal, you'll know.

China into Pump It Up didn't work very well. Don't know if it was the difference in volume, or the delayed start to Pump It Up (it didn't kick in for a few seconds, which is weird), but it wasn't great flow there.

This Men At Work track is ok, nothing special. The sound quality is awful, though. And then it ended with 20 seconds still remaining, so something was clearly wrong there.

Love Peter Gabriel, and while he's really not new wave, this song could be considered a crossover.

Also low volume, though.

I'm beginning to see that.

Ah.

I'm sorry to say that with the exception of the most recent DI, I haven't really paid that much attention to them. I've since looked them over on your site, and I wish I had now, and I will in the future.

That is awesome. Maybe next time around there will be a separate chat thread for running diaries and shit. I know I've brought it up about a hundred times by now.

Ah, Love Will Tear Us Apart. You can never get sick of this song.

I saw you suggest it for this competition, and I concur. It would have prevented me from what essentially amounts to stalking phanan for a week now.

I don't know what happened to the Men At Work song Pump It Up either

I already warned as many people as I could that my copy of just Like Heaven is screwed up and it would be best to use your own if you had it...but I never noticed anything wrong with those songs....

I know people around this site, friends, who would probably be interested in following the competition, and voting, but I'm reluctant to point it out to them, because since they're friends, they'd probably vote for me in a biased manner, and I really don't want that to happen. So, I haven't really said anything.

It will be good for DI, when we have 20 people listening to 20 playlists, plus any willing outsiders. That's at least 400 listens, and if even a few people do the running diaries, it will serve its purpose.

Maybe we could do collaborative listens to one playlist at-a-time or something, that would be cool.

Rio was next. Great song.

Ending with Dance Hall Days was a bit strange, although it's a decent song.

All in all, very good job. You obviously had a ton of great songs, but the transitions were rough at times. But you seem to improve in this area each time out, so can't wait to see what you come up with for DI5.

Bias? That's never happened before...

It's gonna happen regardless, but it evens out in the end, I think.

I agree. I didn't think Retro Island was big enough to warrant a separate thread, but we should definitely try it out for DI5.
