I haven't made up my mind yet as to how many songs each EP will get to send to the final draw.

I definitely understand where those of you who think they should only send one each are coming from...that I'm putting them 'on par'(as some of you put it) with Amnesiac/HTTT/IR, and that the third best song on any of them might be better than the second best on any of the EPs, etc.

However, by putting the EPs 'on par' with those three LPs, all I'm really saying is that the EPs are all better than Pablo Honey, which I think most of us can agree with.

I think OKC/Kid A/Bends getting to send three songs each and Amnesiac/HTTT/IR getting to send two songs each is a fair remedy for the problem of the best song on lesser records making it while the second/third best song on better records doesn't. I am not convinced that we need to punish the EPs and other non-album tracks to remedy it further.

I also wanted the total number of songs in the final draw to be an even 30, and changing the number of songs the EPs can send will change that number as well...but that's just really a petty personal preference, I suppose.

But still, I outlined all of this in the intro/master list thread for this competition way back in November, and nobody objected to the EPs sending two songs each back then, but now all of a sudden a few people came out in the last few threads raising these objections. I understand where they're coming from, but I'm still inclined to keep the numbers as they are.

That said, I haven't made a decision yet, and we can do a few rounds of this first EP before a decision HAS to be made.

Personally, I think it should be one apiece. The final draw is going to be long enough as it is, and picking 2 out of 7 songs for it would be a bit silly.

Then listen to them. If you don't have them, I'd be happy be to hook you up with a zip file with all of the b-sides in it...just leave your e-mail address if you're interested.

I already have a couple of discs filled with these. I'll break it out in the morning and get my vote in. It's my duty as a fan.

I would like to request the acoustic version of "Lift" and any other versions of it if it ain't too much trouble sumtin2stupid@aim.com

They better release it some day...

And this is the only EP I haven't really sat down and listened to...

I don't have lift...it's not an official b-side. Sorry.

Do you have these My Irong Lung tracks?

I'd also add that, realistically, the b-sides aren't likely to last very long in the final round anyway. We're just adding to the stuff that's going to go early. Aside from Gagging Order, I can't see anything competing with the classics we've chosen.

Something else to think about, and namkcuR, I appreciate your willingness to reconsider the matter.

I've been voting in all these polls (good fun, even for a lurker like me), but I don't have any of the EP's. I'd greatly appreciate the zip file.
