Where’d all the song picks come from?

Mostly albums, but one or two are from soundtracks, and I think maybe some of the older ones might be public domain by now? They're all out there to Google so if you need to know about where a specific one came from, it should be easy to find. I tried not to add any made up songs.

No. I mean how was this list compiled? You just came up with it on your own?

Oh, gotcha. You weren't super clear there. Sorry.

Yeah, almost all of the songs came from brainstorming on the fly, but trag did help with the YLT pick. A few of the more recent songs were playing on the bar playlist at work when I was compiling, but mostly just random picks.

Guys, I've thought about it, and I've decided that silverchair is allowed in this.

Mickey will choose one song in the 64 bracket to go, and I will then replace it with findaway by silverchair.

well look, when I picked the YLT song I thought this was a team situation. I'd like to officially change my pick to Shellac's Billiard Player Song

Not how any of this works.

I like the idea of RM battling it voting on completely random list of songs you don't have control over.

Genuinely curious to see what comes out on top.

I'm honored to help with this project, but only on the condition that the YLT song stays.

There's no in or out! It's just a voting thread!

WTF? I thought the choosing of the initial songs was going to be a group exercise. Fuck this. I’m out.

Okay so I will listen to these and vote, but will the votes be placed in a thread here or off the bracket site? There are many songs I love and others I have no idea what they are so an exercise in both bias and learning!

Good news, guys. I've decided to let you all pick songs after all. Here's how.

After this tournament, I will seed another tournament in a similar fashion. The winner of this one and that one will face off in group one of the 64 song mega tournament coming up. The plan is to do this all year and have the mega tournament be seeded by summer 2022. 64 tournaments of 64 songs each. 4096 songs total, but there can only be one winner! The only way to get your preferred songs in that ultimate mega tournament is to VOTE. So participation is super important if you want to influence that mega tournament.

Clearly there hasn’t been an environmental impact study in advance of this announcement. The ecosystem that is RM would be irrevocably destroyed.

I actually did do such an analysis:

This is a great idea, it will cause huge fights.


So we can proceed.

Maybe this wasn't your intention but I can't help but see this as an olive branch after our spirited debate in the "Songs that best represent an artist" thread.
