You may be wondering what the title of this post is supposed to be referring to, so let me explain.
I’m not sure how Austin got the idea, but what he thought of one day, was for each of us to create our own playlist. The driving force for this was the concept of comparison.
First, we produced a list of artists we both listened to. What we then had to do was decide on our one favorite song from each of the artists, and put it all in a playlist. And where does comparison come into this? We compare the two playlists, of course! It’s a random yet fun way of getting to know our similarities and differences in our musical tastes.
There was, however, one exception to the ‘one-song-per-artist’ rule. At some point in the list, we both found it difficult to pick just one song for a particular artist, so we agreed that we were allowed to have three favorites for that one particular artist. The artist we picked was the only thing that was revealed to each other; everything else was top secret until the big reveal and comparison. My three-song artist was Nana Mizuki, and Austin’s was LiSA.
The quasi-table below displays the list of artists (first column), my song choices (second column) compared to Austin’s choices (third column).
Nana Mizuki | Junketsu Paradox; Avalon no Oukan; Synchrogazer -Aufwachen Form- | Vitalization
LiSA | träumerei | crossing field; ROCK-mode; träumerei
Faylan | BLUE BLAZE | BLUE BLAZE
Shoko Nakagawa |Guren Doku Nisshoku | Sorairo Days
YUI | Rain | again
Konomi Suzuki | CHOIR JAIL | DAYS of DASH
Perfume | Spring of Life (Album-mix) | Spending all my time
7!! (seven oops) | Yowamushi-san | Lovers
Ikimonogakari | Renshi | Blue Bird
Girls Dead Monster | Ichiban no Takaramono (Yui ver.) | Alchemy (Yui ver.)
Kalafina | red moon | Hoshi no Utai
