I can't figure out why my playlist won't display. I've been looking at this code for too long.

In your app.js file, you just have a simple syntax error. When using getElementById(), you're already specifying that you're looking for an ID, so you don't include the #.

var playlistElement = document.getElementById('playlist'); // no # here

It's much harder to spot these things when you're looking at your own work. Happy coding! :)

you sir, are a life saver. cheers!
