So, after totally losing my mind and doing a double SOTM compo, I've been wondering how other "hosts" go about choosing their shortlists of songs for voting on?
Then darkness fell
As the 1st God and the 2nd burned in hell
And all alone
Stood the 3rd God looking wearied to the bone

I'm with Kevin on this one, only hosted once but quickly realised if you think too much into is easy to lose ya mind. Reckon a bit of personal bias is healthy, if there were a strict set of criteria to look for we'd likely have the mostly the same people.

Go with your gut, although I try to include some positive bias to get some musical diversity.
After all it’s more of a showcase than a competition imho.
