Nev's in it to win it and is doing some serious research. He's been working his way through the Pat Metheny back catalogue for that tasteful, but idiosyncratic and surprising first pick and is only up to 1991 so far. Give him a break!
i think hatz has pulled this trick before, whereby he submits a couple of songs, then assesses the mood of the cup before sending the rest of his choices.
to be blunt, i don't think you should accept entries unless you receive all the songs.
Well, I'm keen to start , and I've already said I would accept the first two, so I can't really go back on it now. Hatz has comitted to getting the rest of his list in by the end of the week, and hippiedrill is almost there: OM says he'll make the deadline, so it's only Nev the Gash who's not yet come uo to scratch.
That said, the idea about 'assessing the mood of the cup" doesn't convince me. I've seen most of the entries, remember, and it strikes me as the usual wild and wooly mix of genres, lots of unknown (to me) artists, and just a few playing favourites. I think it's a bit of a mug's game trying to second-guess other posters, and indeed the voters.
