Thanks to jbud1980 for suggesting this.  :smth023

It's contest time once again at!  With the Las Vegas show rapidly approaching, we're wondering what you think The Cure's set will consist of.  Pop classics?  A dark dream?  Perhaps some b-sides or other oddities?  Let us know by selecting up to 35 songs in the order you think they will be played.  The staff has come up with a scoring system to determine who made the closest guess. 

Deductions are as follows:

-1: song out of order by one spot
-2: song out of order by two spots
-3: song out of order by three or more spots
-4: for not selecting a song that was played
-5: selecting a song that wasn't played

Complicated?  Maybe.  But hey, the staff is going to be tallying up the scores, not you.  ;)

And with a contest there should be a prize, right?  Well, we've got something pretty cool to award the winner.

1st place will get a 4:13 Dream lithograph signed by Robert Smith.

2nd place will receive a DVD of the recent NME concert in London [TV Broadcast]

So please, submit your list here. 


1-No more than 35 songs.
2-Place the songs in the order you think they will be played.
3-Please state what you think the total time of the concert will be.  This will be used in case there's a tie. 

Deadline to enter is April 15th.

Check the current guesses in a spreadsheet file

Awesome prizes! I am extremely pumped to win, but best of luck to us all!  :-D
