PostSubject: The Best of M&E vs. Best of VRL Idea   Sat Mar 14, 2009 12:32 am

I came up with this idea and thought I might give it a try. Since the beginning I've been thinking that after I did 5 or 6 lists (it's going to be 6 probably) I would then make a best of list where I would get all my favorite songs across those lists and form them into a super-awesome 10 or 15 song list (probably 15).

You guys started posting lots of bands and lists so I thought maybe I could borrow some of your guys' songs and put them into my uber list.

But NO!

I have a far better idea. We are going to make a "The Best of Metal and Entertainment 1" list and I'm going to make my own Best of List. In the end I will create a topic presenting both lists and a poll. People will listen to both lists and *only* if they listen to both they get to vote on which one they honestly enjoyed more. If that's too hard just pretend you have to choose one to listen to again, which would you want to hear again? Anyways that's still a ways away.

Right now we have a problem. There are probably hundreds of songs scattered about the Metal and Rock forum right now. How will you guys decide which songs to put into the Best of M&E list? I thought of a great solution. Instead of scavenging the forums and coming here to post the songs we are going to have each member post a very short list of songs they love. Make sure to number them 1 to n since there may not be room for all of them. I think 5 songs would be plenty since I'm going to pick all the songs at the top of each one's lists to put into the Best of M&E list. These songs can be already posted or new.

Since there is no exact formula for the selection process we'll see what happens once the songs are posted (the first step). The rest will be pretty easy...just select everyone's tops and order them into a list. The final list will be presented at the same time my final is presented. I'll probably end up deciding the order of the songs and promise to do my best job with that. Another advantage to this is that it helps even things out a bit. The disadvantage on the M&E side is that the songs you guys choose might be oddly diverse (although that can be a good thing) because you guys can't communicate between each other. The strength is the cream of the crop freshness of ideas (you only have to choose like 3 or 5 songs so the ones you choose will be the absolute greatest). Also you aren't limited to any previous list. My advantage is that I can have completely coherent ideas but I'm just one person with rotten ideas and I am confined to using my previous lists which most of you might have heard by now and so not enjoy as much. I think it's pretty even.

Anyways so get posting. After this we compose a list and then battle!

My sixth list is coming along well. So far I have 4 songs for it so maybe about 1/3 done. I'll be able to make the Best Of really fast when I'm done with list 6.

Stuff looks good guys. Hopefully Brute takes a long time to do his list because I'm still working on list 6. I'm putting a lot of music into it that I'm not very familiar with at all. It's a lot of fun but when you need to listen to 40 minutes of material from a band just to choose one song you can see how it gets time consuming. I think it's a good thing that I'm making it unique though because the Best Of list is going to be a return to the more usual stuff. That way list 6 will not be eclipsed by the Best Of.
