I think the last time anything on that list changed for me was around seven years ago.

As music charts go, they are calibrated on an unusually long time scale.

If I had a pony
I'd pony in the morning
I'd pony in the evening
all over this land...

I'd ask for dynamics
and more ways to shuffle
through the bins and the buckets
of the songs of the mefites
aaaaall over this laaaaaand
woooooo

And now I NEVER want to hear "Running with the Soundsmith" ever again.

Hrm! Maybe an answer to static results is periodic swingeing contacts purges paired with adding utterly arbitrary new contacts. Granted, it's a terrible, terrible answer!

... and more ways to shuffle / through the bins and the buckets / of the songs of the mefites..."
Being serious briefly, I'd ride that pony. That was what I liked about the sidebar, it popped up some things I hadn't heard and might be interested in. I hadn't really considered Wolfdog's point above about a tendency of results to converge or atrophy.

Rid of You

A great song that is not about doggos or floofly kitties, by Johnny Wallflower.

I just have a quick minute for this, but I've told about everyone I know about A Man of Very Few Words and this version of Fame, unforgettably described as "...like Kurt Cobain and Matthew Sweet fucking while Billy Corgan watches". Suffice to say, you won't be thinking about fresh-faced, dancing teenagers.

My list hasn't changed in a while either but would it be wrong to use this thread as an opportunity to list a few of my all-time fave MeFiMu posts? LAALALALAAAA I CAN'T HEAR YOU DID YOU SAY YES I THINK SO OK HERE WE GO

Stealers by Groklock - just one of the loveliest, most understatedly clever and addictive original songs I've heard on the board

Lorem Ipsum by jake - I never get bored of this, I always forget how much I like it and then it gets going and my brain just goes TURN IT UP OMG BLAST ME WITH IT NOW oh man it's on my headphones now and I want to stand on my desk and headbang at work

I had to crawl to Arizona by Flapjax at Midnite - will go on record to say this is the best use of squeezy dolphins on any musical track anywhere on the internet, your argument etc.

Kiss, cover by grumpybear69 - there are a bazillion Prince covers doing the rounds since His Almighty Purpleness passed away, you don't need any of them, you just need this one.

I could seriously go on and on. But this is a start. People you need these in your life.
