    I get that they are great, easy to learn songs, but there are many many great easy to learn songs, Many many of them have been suggested. 
    And if 75% of songs at quad can be new, that seems a good balance? 
    We have to strike a balance - and we won't always get it right. Similarly, we can't please everyone. I will have a chat to the organising troop and work out where the balance should be as I seem to get the bigger picture with PM's and so forth. I want to get as many new songs in as possible - and if we aren't quite there yet then we can shuffle and adjust to suit.
    I get that, just my 2¢.
    Happy with whatever comes out! Colour me enthusiastic :)

    @LuttiS I reckon me and you doing Paradise City with @thomasross20 will be challenging enough!

  • Just putting it out there, whether it makes the final studio list or not, I'll be haranguing people into a live performance of Girl from Mars at the gig ;)

    @fandango to give @darthed1981 a chance to pull something together, how about picking one of Kings of Speed or Urban Guerilla?  The former is probably one of the easier to do without synth/horns, the latter has a more interesting vocal.
    Let’s have Kings of Speed, please.

    We have a rather-too-long longlist to narrow down, but lots of time, so let's have some fun slimming it down...

    Three Tom Petty suggestions, we need to choose from...

    Running Down a Dream
    Learning To Fly
    I Won't Back Down

    Thoughts..?
    Warning: this post may contain overtly affectionate references to the irreplaceable Mary Spender, and if you are reading this, Hi Mary!

    Won't back down is the only one that's not been done at a jam.

    Benevolent Dictator Message:

    As you all know I'm very passionate about the Jams - they mean a lot to me. They mean a lot to a lot of us. I'm also conscious that I want to get it right so we can all have a cracking day, and enjoy ourselves - the buzz after Sasquatch was huge and I want to get that time after time.

    The response to the jams this time round has been, frankly, incredible, and I'm floored. It's brilliant and I don't want to kill that.

    However, I'm conscious that you may have all caught me with my pants down a bit and the songlist organising has been a bit chaotic.. I want everyone to have their fair crack, and I want the songs on the day to represent the needs/desires/hard work of those who will be there to play them. I've not given either of the setlist organisers a clear brief and have left them both a bit high and dry and that's not very fair of me. As such, I'd like to take a pause in this thread and have a discussion with them to make sure I'm supporting them and giving them a clear and consistent process for getting the right songs together for all of you.

    How do I know I've failed at this? I've had about 200 notifications today, a number of PMs and messages on here and other threads suggesting people aren't 100% happy with the songlists for a variety of reasons. I want to get this right so I'll chat to @darthed1981 and @markblagdon and agree the right way to do it and make sure they are supported and not left stirring chaotic porridge! 

    Massive apologies - I should have got this sorted earlier 
    - but if anything it's an indication of just how brilliant your collective enthusiasm or response has been. I will post again tomorrow to give an ETA for songlist chat startup again - I want you to all be able to carry on by Saturday at the latest.

    I'll close this thread temporarily, just until Mr BH gets his pants back up.  I don't want him to be distracted from that task by more notifications pinging into his inbox
    :D
