I figure that if all submissions are in by Monday, everyone can take next week to listen, and then we can start the competition the following Monday, July 14. With only two groups, we'd probably wrap things up by the last week of the month.

I'm thinking about dropping a Bowie song for a Simple Minds song. The Bowie song might be a couple years earlier than you want, and the Simple Minds song is pretty seminal, if a bit overrated.

Yeah, but I can't get get that into it. It's like...it's ok, it's sort of fun, it's somewhat catchy, but it's not great. There's much better material out there. I didn't want my playlist to be littered with brat-pack-movie-soundtrack sugar songs(OMD's 'If You Leave' also hasn't made the cut yet). But then Don't You Forget About Me has this reputation of being a defining song of the 80s. I dunno.

It's one of my favorite songs, but I see what you're saying. If you've got a balance of both of popular and more obscure tracks, then you're all good.

I'm having a difficult time judging this. I know the songs I'm using very well, but I'm not sure if the rest of you - especially you young 'uns - will. I'm trying not to use songs that have been played to death in the decades since. In the case of really well known artists of that era, I'm trying to use more obscure (but still great) tracks, so you'll be introduced to and hopefully enjoy songs that are new to you.

Meh. I should probably look at lists from previous competitions to see how obscure is too obscure.

However you wanna put it, as long as it sounds good together, it's alright with me. The obscure thing is all relative, like you said, but it's cool to see every once and a while. Finding new music and liking it is always a great feeling, but I'd much rather enjoy a well-made mix even if I know most of the songs on there. That's just me though.

Agreed. How you come up with your list is up to you. Put what you want on there. I wouldn't care if it's all hits, or all songs I've never heard of, it's still going to be unique in its own way.

And namkcuR, good call on Simple Minds. I totally forgot about them.

I think I've got a playlist that I'm happy with now.

Would David Bowie's 'Rebel Rebel' from 1974 be considered 'punk' enough?
