At some point, the difficulty in coming up with a new and different song becomes too much effort. This is supposed to be fun.

But what fun is there constantly going in circles? Making an effort to find songs that haven't been used before is what makes it interesting for me. I learn fun and interesting things in the process. A game without end ceases to be a game and is more akin to doodling - IMHO.

I see this game as a quick hit - in and out. I don't see it as an endless research project.
