Time to play again!
Those who have nice sized music collections might have fun doing this. The job is to find songs that fit at least 15 of the categories below and put them on a CD. Don't repeat a category (unless you want to make a second CD, of course). You must use at least 15 different categories for this (although you're always welcome to make another CD and repeat categories from the first one!). You can use more than 15 categories on a CD, but you have to use at least that many.
Make sure to let your partner know which category each song fits into! And please do let them know the artist and title of the song, just in case they love it enough to want more! You'll have two partners for this, and it's international since CDs aren't that expensive to send even internationally.
The categories are:
1 Song with at least some lines that arenâ€™t in English
2 Song from or about any religion (Letâ€™s avoid derogatory songs, k?)
3 Song recorded this year
4 Song recorded before 1970
5 Song about a city
6 Song to exercise to
7 Song about death
8 Song that you can relate your life to
9 Song about childhood
10 Song about hopes/dreams
11 Song from an artist who only recorded one album
12 Song about one of the senses (taste, smell, sight, etc.)
13 Song that you could listen to on repeat over and over
14 Song about an emotion
15 Song that mentions some form of technology
16 Song that makes a political statement
17 Song that is about or mentions or alludes to a Shakespearean play (interpret as loosely as you want!)
18 Song from a less popular or less well known genre
19 Song that mentions food or a specific food in the title
20 Song mentioning or including something nature-like.(whale songs? Interpret freely!)
21 Duet with singers who donâ€™t usually sing together.
22 Song about or mentioning sports/a sport.
23 Tribute song (tribute to original singer, event, whatever)
24 Song that reminds you of one of your parents.
25 Song youâ€™ve sung to your child/children, or would like to if you had them.
If you can, it would be nice if people try to explain why they chose certain songs for each category. It's not required, but it'd be nice!
Just so people know, copying tracks off of iTunes can sometimes make it difficult for things to be heard in certain stereos. I've found that this happens sometimes with me and it doesn't with others, so I thought I'd just warn you that if you do that, your partner might not get to hear the music!
1 Rating of 4.5 or better, with no more than one no send in six months. Go ahead and message me if youâ€™ve been rated unfairly at any point or have a good reason for your lower rating or the no sends, and weâ€™ll talk. Iâ€™m certainly open to listening.
2 Newbies allowed, but fill out your profiles. Do this before the final sign-up day, because I like to assign partners as early as I can.
3 Communication is key. If youâ€™re going to be late with the swap, let your partner know. If your partner tells you he/she is going to be late, and keeps up the communication, give him/her a break. Sometimes things come up that just canâ€™t be helped.
4 I reserve the right to ban anyone that I think might be a problem. This means people that I've noticed have a history of rating unfairly, nastiness, etc. I believe in playing nice.
