Glad a few people are interested.

Anybody got an opinion on how many people should be allowed to do this? I think 15-20 is a good number, any more than that and interest would drop off. 20 is pushing it a bit, but because the mixes will be so short hopefully people will find it easier to find the time to listen to them.

When do people think a good deadline is? It shouldn't take long to put these together, because they're so short and because you don't have to worry so much with the flow compared to a longer mix. I know the Christmas season is a bit hectic for a lot of people, so would it be alright if I don't start posting them until the new year? Or would people prefer cracking on with it sooner?

Also, we should make sure two people don't pick the same artist, but I'm not sure the best way to safeguard against that.
you can take the ? off my name, haha. I'm in for realz

Well, I would say that Copeland and Third Eye Blind are too 'big' to be included in a thread like this.

do you really think so though? I am not going to pick any 3eb singles, and I definitely feel like as a whole AP isn't THAT huge on the band. I mean, if the other people who end up doing this are all fans already then I can pick again for sure

I don't want to lay down too many rules on this, so if you want to do 3eb, that'd be fine. I was just under the impression that they were a pretty well-loved band here. Maybe not though.
i can go ahead and do a lesser known band if that's what the vibe is around here

I'm excited to listen to the ones even from bands I know and/or love, a 5-song sampler is kinda a cool thing. Also a tough thing to put together, as I am finding

Yeah, I'm finding it interesting to see which songs people have picked for the artists I already love. It's pretty cool to see what someone else considers essential and I find myself making little hypothetical lists of the songs I would have included if I'd have picked that artist.
I tried to make my 5 tracks A) Span all releases B) Essential and C) flow in order like a mini-mix should

It doesn't help that all the best Prince songs (with a few exceptions) are the long ones. Haha.

The deadline is Sunday, I think I'll post the first few on Monday. I still haven't decided on exactly how many I'm going to post and how often I'll be posting them, seeing as we're doing it in waves. That'll depend on how many people submit, I suppose.

I'm gonna do a massive quote and quote everyone who hasn't submitted one yet, just to give them a reminder.

If I were running this I'd post 3/week.. 1 Monday, 1 Wednesday, 1 Friday. Just an idea

Ed really only has a debut full length out, "+", as well as a collaborative EP with Yelawolf, "Slumdon Bridge". Check those out.

Ed Sheeran did an EP with Yelawolf? Wtf?
