Not a shot at the list or anything, just not familiar with some of it.   I can for sure get behind The National and Vince Staples though.

Oh, I didn't think it was a shot at all.

I was just asking because I was curious.

Love me some Staples. Underrated rapper, really. Came across this video the other day which was quite haunting. 

Senorita

eta* I'm pretty new to the National, as it were. I think last year was when I began listening to them.

Had to look that up. :lol:

Listening to Mac Miller's Tiny Desk Concert right now.

Interesting.  Whoa. I don't know whether I love it or hate it. Sounds like sort of sing-song funk. Not what I expected at all. It's killing me that he's not introducing the band that's playing with him, though. He's so intimidated by being there that he's forgetting how to be an entertainer. RIP, mang.

50 songs

One song per year from the beginning of recorded music to the current year.  If you don't know 21st Century music, you can opt for 1950-1999.   Date ranges do not have to be contiguous.

Seems like any 50 year span @simey

Right, but last time it started in 66. Does that mean now it would start in '70? Could we decide what year we wanted it to start to lead up to 50 years?  

*Nevermind you sorta answered that. So we can pick our 50 year span perhaps?  I just spent the last hour trying to help my neighbor find her cat who didn't come home earlier, and she believes the fireworks are scaring him. I saw him at 5:01 in the hedges panting and squaling, and sent her a text saying so. She had a family member over, and then tried to find him and couldn't. She brings him in every day at dinner time. Hopefully he is ok, and just hiding from the fireworks. It is scary to have a pet outside here with all the coyotes. I'll look around again around 12:30, which I hope the fireworks will be done by then.

It seems like when Eephus posted it this time, it was just from the start of recorded music, not sure if he said anything about a consecutive 50 run that we have to put together, but I could be wrong.  

My vague, hazy understanding of it was that it we would get 50 songs, only 1 song from any given year, but starting from the start of recorded music.

It keeps getting bumped by, what appears to be, simey’s avatar but when you go to last post, there’s nothing there. 

One of her ferals? Should we check for raccoons and/or coyotes first?

It's 50 songs from ~50 years.  I'm planning some dice-rolling gimmicks to allow limited doubling up on years to make it easier for people who aren't big on recent music.

So 1970-2020? And does the first round start in the earliest year or  draft from whatever year at any time?

Any 50 years.

The first 45 rpm 7" single was released in 1949.  That gives you 71 years to choose from.  Actually, it'll end up being 45 years because there will be five free play years that will be made available during the draft.

Does it have to have been released as a single? That narrows it down quite a bit. Do CDs, cassingles, and 12" singles count?

There went post rock: the category. 

Wonder if there are any famous edits with that time in mind.

Playlist song length data

under 2 min - 32 songs
2-3 min - 307
3-4 min - 761
4-5 min - 691
5-6 min - 344
6-7 min - 150
7-8 min - 90
8-9 min - 40
9-10 min - 24
10-15 min - 36
15 min or more - 8

Less than 15% of the songs on the DI playlist are over six minutes. :shrug:

Sound quality of a 7" single falls off the more music is crammed on it.

Oh, not complaining. In the least. Just lamenting my boys' contributions at the wayside of the beach on the isle. Fire away on the time. Dance the night away.

Dude, the singer is talking about himself those first two lines.  I was going to tell you this in the thread you started but figured I'd save you the embarrassment.

Yeah, isn't that the kicker...hence the parenthesis in the updated title.

Stupid me. Have you ever seen that Velvet Underground thread I started with "Women never really feign..."

I thought that was what Lou Reed was really saying.

Damn Bob Seger and his marble munching at the beginning.

Waiting on the thunder
Waiting on the thunder

I woke last night to the sound of thunder
"How far off," I sat and wondered
Started humming a song from 1962

Great song but not from 1962. Although I do allow for the possibility of the narrator not actually knowing exactly when the song was from as well.

It's hard to do italicized lyrics to J Dilla. Everything gets lost in the translation.

True but one of the great jukebox songs of all time is not eligible. It’s not my bag so I don’t care but I swear it got played by somebody with regularity back in the years jukeboxes were a thing. 
 

I’m in though for this draft!
