    So, I think most of us here like to think we are fairly open minded to new music, but are we really?

    Something I've been considering doing for a while, but never done. Here it is...

    The UKMix Music Challenge - On a random day, go through each of the front pages of the four main genre topics (Rock, Dance, Urban, Pop) and listen to every song listed that you have never heard before, even if you don't think you'll like it.

    I think I might attempt this now, sometimes the best way to find new songs you love is to dive in the deep end. The unfortunate truth is that a lot of time you have to sift through crud to find the good stuff.

    Anyone else up for the challenge? ;)

    I'm amidst it right now and it's really difficult and takes a long time!

    So far, it's resulted in three downloads:
    - Ed Sheeran // The A Team
    - Ed Sheeran // Last Ones Standing [Example cover]
    - The Feeling // Set My World On Fire

    The worst was Limp Bizkit's 'Gold Cobra'

    I think Pop and Dance (my usual spots) will be easier.

    I was supposed to do this, but then I saw that Selena Gomez's new song features Pixie Lott. :( I have been playing it ever since.

    Aww I want to do this! But my dialup won't allow me :(

    But that sounds really fun, especially in the pop forum for me.
    I've now met Dean Ambrose FOUR TIMES - 28/03/15, 02/04/16, 20/08/16 & 01/04/17!!

    I normally surf through different members' personal charts, and listen to the songs I haven't heard before.
    You have the luxury of choosing loneliness. For some people, its not an option.

    Same, although there's always certain types of songs I'll avoid.

    Hey, this is a nice challenge actually. I recently moved from rap to rap-core, started to like Hollywood Undead music. Also found a lot of interesting 24 hour challenge videos that are having nice music in them. I don't know how this happended but, like this change. At the moment best song of HU for is Gotta let Go, it is so nice.
