Blog Wars: The Genius Playlist | Round 1, Battle 4


Earlier this week, Ear Farm and The Culture of Me took on Lil Wayne's "Dr. Carter" in two surprisingly different Genius Playlists. The Culture of Me's versatile, somewhat alternative (Cool Kids, Beastie Boys, Jurassic 5, Lupe Fiasco, etc) playlist came on top with 60% of the votes! I'm sorry Ear Farm, but the voters have booted you out!

On this fourth battle, we're pairing up Arjan Writes and Nialler9. This time I've ask my friends to create a genius playlist on the most confusing song of 2008: "Human." I was really excited to see what these two came up with for the Killers' jam. What didn't surprise me was that neither of their playlists disappoint. These two lists are the best we've seen yet, and the hardest vote so far.
