Blog Wars: The Genius Playlist | Round 1, Battle 1


Hello and welcome to the first ever Blog Wars hosted by Pretty Much Amazing! This is the first of hopefully many Blog Wars to come. This particular Blog War pins bloggers and their music libraries against each other. Utilizing iTune's "Genius Playlist" feature, 10 bloggers will go head to head and compete for your votes!

This is how it works:

I get two bloggers to create a Genius Playlist stemmed from the same song. I will publish said playlists here and you, the readers, will decide which one you like best! This is  100% winner-takes-all so choose your favorite blogger wisely.

Here is the complete list of participating blogs:
I Guess I'm Floating
Arjan Writes
The Music Slut
Nialler 9
Culture of Me
Music is Art
Sheena Beaston
Ear Farm
Pigeons & Planes
