I don't think it's bad form to play multiple songs from the same Artist and/or album. Sometime I'll even play a block of an artist (2-3 songs); or chase a song with another version that is drasticaly different. I concern myself more with not playing the exact same music night after night--that's not...

Acrobat Label

Building on Jesse's 25

To try and provide something productive, rather than Lawrence and my bickering back and forth, I'd like to see how many different versions of the 25 mentioned by Jesse in the "Exchange Top 25" thread.
