Wish someone had PM'd or texted me to do this. Though Craig is prob going to steal my guy anyway. Bummer.

You had me feeling really bad about myself until I saw that you made it in, haha. If you want Chad, by all means, you have first dibs. He'd be a great one to do though, and I was certainly considering him. Bet you could guess the other guys on my shortlist, too.

As long as Motorcycle Drive By is there, your balls are safe.

"Motorcycle Drive By" is my first Third Eye Blind song on any mixtape. Songs tears me the fuck up, but I still love it.

Also, this thread blew the hell up in my absence. Glad I got my foot in the door early.

I'm beginning to entertain thoughts of doing a different artist. I don't think I'll ever be satisfied with the one I'm trying to whittle down to five

I hope you're not trying Springsteen.

Hellllll no. Who's my other soapbox artist? Haha.

I figured it was The Replacements, but Springsteen would be legitimately impossible. I don't think I could do it without picking at least three songs off Born to Run

Running into the same problem with Tim actually

Not terribly surprising. You'd better get "Here Comes a Regular" on there! Haha

It's my favorite song of all time!

It's top ten for me, for sure.

Mine's 25.4 minutes. Y'all can deal. Haha.

Trying to do Chad. Ridiculously difficult.

I can imagine. I think I know what I'd start with and probably what I'd finish with too.

I think I know my opener. Split on closers.

excited to see what you choose, I think I have an idea of what songs I'd pick for him. are you including Averi or just Chad solo?

Gotta do Averi too. Probably won't use anything from Direction of Motion. But there's at least one from Drawn to Revolving Doors that I could never leave off.

"In Tune" is still in the running for my favorite song Chad's ever been a part of. But a lot of that probably has to do with associations and memories and stuff.

I've just never formed the same emotional connection to that first album as I have with the rest of his stuff.

Do either of you have the Live at Avalon album? It's generally not worth your time, but if I didn't send it to you, I have to send you the version of "Depondent". The story of Chad/Averi is just incomplete without having that song.

Had no idea this existed.

It's a soundboard recorded album with an awful mix that does not remotely do the show (which was transcendent) justice. But "Despondent" was the moment in their live show (well before they put out Drawn) where I knew I was starting a lifelong love with a band. Just incredible. And the version on their EP is just total poop, but it's probably the one that suffers the least from the poor recording quality on the live album version. So I feel like I did you a major disservice by not sending you that song. Will rectify this weekend.

Sounds awesome. Looking forward to hearing it.

Just to remind you guys, if you're still planning on doing this, the deadline is this Sunday. Hope you manage to find the time to put something together!

I'll get mine in for sure. Just probably not until Thursday or Friday.

This shit is impossible. I can't decide whether I want to just throw my favorites on her or to give the most eclectic representation of his sound. Leaning towards some mix of the two, but five songs isn't enough!

No one's listening to yours, anyway.

Yeah, okay.
