My CD Mix Challenge

As rackletang's cd mix challenge draws to a close, and we look back fondly on cd mix challenges past, we become bereft; we wonder, what will we do with all these countless hours of free time we all have to obsess over our favorite tunes? Well never fear, I have a solution, and it is: another cd mix challenge. Time to combine your standard eljay self-reflection with sweet riffs and phat beats.

ETA: You have a month. Let's say til friday may 13th.

Oh you want me to shut the hell up and tell you what I want on the mix? Yeah, me too. I sound like an ass when I try too hard to be funny. So for the uninitiated, you make your version, and send it to me, and I send everyone who sends me theirs one of mine, and we all bask in the mutual love. If people get real excited and like, interact in comments, they can get their hands on other people's as well. And here it is:

1. Your favorite song about suicide.

2. A song that features a color in the chorus.

3. Something for meditation.

4. A song that represents your favorite season.

5. a song that makes you fly, see sweeping vistas, and think anything is possible.

6. a song to listen to at bedtime.

7. a song that's really two songs in some way.

8. a song you remember listening to on a schoolbus, or probably listened to on a schoolbus.

9. a song with the word magic in it somewhere.

10. a song to listen to over coffee.

11. a song you didn't realize was a makeout song at first, but then discovered, yeah, it's a makeout song.

12. a song that makes you regret something you did.

13. a song that makes you regret something you didn't do.

14. the first pop song you remember liking.

15. a song where you can't hit the notes.

16. a song about another world or another universe.

17. a biology song.

18. a song that takes you back to your roots.

19. a song written by someone who is both songwriter and a poet.

20. do you like to end things on a bright note, or a dark note? show me.

Does it have to be one song per item, or can one song count for multiple items?

Are you thinking about combining 12 + 13 the same way I am?

Hmmm, I need to learn how to rip cd's and then get an auxillary drive or a really big SDcard to put it all on so I don't fill up my hard drive.

i think we have an extra hard drive laying around that could be turned into a music drive...

well on the 2 others i have participated in, it was 24, and the rule was if it didn't fit you had to give up, but then most people just put it on 2cds. also people break the rules all the time and don't answer one. also, it /could/ fit, but they'd have to be short songs. basically, do what you feel you have to do.

I am tempted to see if I can do this challenge with only Rush songs. I'm giving myself 80% odds on that one.

Question about number 11. Is this a song one would put on to makeout or a song about making out/getting it on?
snidegrrl
Apr. 14th, 2005 03:11 pm (UTC)
i guess that's up to you! i was thinking the former.
