  • Wildcard-Search
    With the help of a so-called wildcard you can look for several search words, which have the same word beginning. If you search e.g. for "Typo*", the search will find everything that begins with "Typo" : Typo3, Typoscript, Typocode, Typo3user... etc.
  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.
  • Search for user
    It is possible to limit the search result on answers of certain users. In addition to the retrieval query attach still another "user:username" and find the results, which were written by this certain user. If the username could not be found this will be ignored.

I'd say Loca People in 2011, Boten Anna/Gnarls Barkley in 2006 and maybe Maroon 5 in 2004. I can't remember any other years, so please refreshen my memory!

So... which song was it this year?

I think this was one of the better years regarding repeat hits.

The two songs I heard the most on the campsite was

During the daytime: Mø - Pilgrim http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5uIVBxWZVU

During nighttime: Major Lazer - Bumaye http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zCoCa6b6cU

It is with absolute certainty the first time I hear either of those songs (and neither are good nor hits in my mind).

True.

It was more like a "repeat playlist" with every single giant sound system playing the same crap over and over.
I just dont get it. If you spend 50k kroner on a sound system, then why cant you spend 15 minutes to find some proper music for it and not just play what everyone else is playing!

That was the biggest let down for me on the camping area this year. Almost no matter what camp I passed when going on "adventure" they pretty much played the same music and the same hits. The fact that a big camp had a metal theme speaks for itself. Just a few years ago you would hear metal in lots of camps but I guess that time is over.

I don't think we play the same song twice in our camp. Too many music freaks with massive collections of weird, funny or rare music. Each of us have our own thing. For me for instance, I like to dig around for lesser known 80s pop hits, and motown/soul classics in rare edition recordings, and könsrock. We usually end up playing all the freaky/rare stuff that everyone has found since last year.

One late night we sat through a 2 hour german recording of something similar to Gramsespektrum. My german isn't good enough and I wasn't stoned enough to find it all that funny. But hey, if someone wants to hear it. It's fine with me, as long as it's not dubstep or experimental jazz I really don't mind.

This is actually the reason me and one from my camp have seriously considered building a sound system (not huge, just a good one) for next year. It annoys us that every single time you can hear a system some blocks away they play the same generic music as everyone else.

Well. That definitely supports Martins idea that we didnt have a repeat hit this year.

To be honest, I dont think the problem with generic crappy playlists was as big as some of you say. At least during the daytime, there was a lot of really good and old school hip hop all over the camp site. I was quite surprised this was true in G too, where the average age seemed quite low.
