Not at the end at least.

Same. I haven't had many opportunities to work on it, so I recycled an idea I was previously using for Desert Island 3. It's too depressing, too intense. It's structured around Godspeed You Black Emperor's "The Dead Flag Blues" so that should give you an idea. I wanted to include something upbeat, but it's impossible. I'm going to have to come up with something else, even though the cover is already finished. Blah.

Well mine's going to be upbeat. I'm sort of throwing this idea of a guy just having a shit of time, finding everything hard and then BAM! it all picks up. So mine's uplifting. I had a feeling that a lotta people would be doing sort of downcast ones, and I prefer uplifting music, so it's reflecting my tastes.

Mine's pretty low-key and drab most of the time, but it's an optimistic story.

So ... what you're trying to tell us is that you're using a Paris Hilton song?

Question!

I can't use Brain Damage/Eclipse as one song can I? Even though the flow in and out of each other?

If I were to use Eclipse, I cant cut off the last 40 seconds can I? Because it's very annyoing. The last 40 seconds are almost silence.

I'm trying to make mine with the concept of the final day in the life of an innocent man who has been wrongly convicted of murder and sentenced to death, the events of the day leading up to and including the execution. But I'm having a hard time doing it. I'm having a hard time finding enough songs that fit. I may have to think of a different theme, but I like this one.

Sheesh, if everyone else is also doing a depressing concept, maybe I don't have to feel so bad about mine.

Mine's mellow, but I don't think it's depressing.

Has there ever been a non-depressing concept album?

Even Tommy was about a deaf, dumb, and blind kid and Ziggy Stardust was about an alien telling the world it had 5 years left to live.

Pretty unhappy stuff.

Hmm...

Quadrophenia? No.
The Wall? No.
Animals? No.
SF Sorrow? No.
OK Computer? No.

.......... I guess you're right. Musicians must be manic depressives.
