    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 Mary Spender

    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
