One of the more popular off-topic threads within TechRepublic’s Discussion Forum is the occasional Friday Nite Music post. Each time the TR community introduces a new FNM, there’s a different theme — either based on genre,  season, or other categorization. The most recent FNM on April 10, 2009, was slated as a playlist competition. Before you vote, please read over the following details:

There are four music genres: Rock and Roll, Country, Artsy Fartsy, and IDK (I Don’t Know). Each member is allowed one playlist in up to three of the categories. All playlists contain 10 songs — either through a single link to a music service playlist (available on imeem or YouTube) or 10 links to the individual songs.

We encourage the TR community to vote for their favorite playlist in all four categories. Click through to the members’ entries, look at their selections, and listen to the music before placing your vote. Since this may take a little bit of time, we’re keeping the vote open until the start of the next FNM post (date TBD, but most likely mid- to late May).  The winners will be announced on the Monday following that FNM. Happy listening!
