[how you feelin' |boredbored]
[song of the day |cailin~*~unwritten law]

thought i'd post one of these since it's a couple days behind.

i didn't realize this song had so many artists who've recorded it. i could only think of elvis. but there are least 22! so i'll list bright eyes as a less obvious choice.

'Here Comes Santa Claus' [Dec. 1st, 2005|07:50 pm]
Songs for Themed CDs

Happy December! It even snowed here today, so it feels extra Christmas-y. Anyway, It's late, and I'm almost missing Dec. 1st for you east coasters, but not quite! So...I can think of five people/groups who have sang this one off the top of my head, so I'll be really interested in seeing what everyone comes up with!

December 1st: 'Here Comes Santa Claus'

(PS...Do I even want to know what it says about me that I keep typing Satan Claus?)

Christmas music [Nov. 28th, 2005|04:16 pm]
Songs for Themed CDs

Tis the season and all that....

Sooooo. Instead of just listing out Christmas songs, which is like way too easy, I thought it'd be fun to, for each day in December, pick one traditional song and just go crazy listing and perhaps linking to all the different versions of said song. That might be more fun considering how many versions there are of most of these songs, and if we get into it and upload some of them to yousendit or wherever, it'd be lots of fun.

So on Wednesday, I'll start the first one. If you have any requests, post them here and I'll make sure to get them up. If we have enough, I'll do two a day!

And if anyone wants to start a list of original songs that haven't been covered by a jazillion people, that would be most enjoyable as well!

This 'n That [Nov. 14th, 2005|11:33 pm]
Songs for Themed CDs

Hello y'all!

Well, first I wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions on the next theme to discuss? I've got a couple of ideas, but no pressing need to discuss any of them next. So suggest away!

Also, if anyone wants to do a CD exchange, let me know. It'd be very fun, and you run only the risk of getting fun and interesting new music. If there's enough interest, I'll buckle down and really plan out logistics, and if not, then it can be less formal, I think. Any suggestions for this, too, please share!

Well, that's all I have for now. And actually, if you have a theme, start a new post!!! It's fun, let's make lists of songs! :)

I love this idea [Nov. 8th, 2005|08:07 pm]

[how you feelin' |okayokay]
[song of the day |care bears]

And I definitely think we should do some kind of thing to make CD's for each other and then mail them out. I know you mentioned this sometime before, Brynn. So, maybe we can have some sort of Pollyanna deal, where we make a CD for someone else in a theme. I don't know. I've obviously been drinking some wine so I don't really know if I know what I'm talking about.

Some suggested ideas:

First post, first theme [Nov. 8th, 2005|08:19 am]
Songs for Themed CDs

So this is just to bring over a list from my own journal. I'd asked for help coming up with 'color' songs because I'm on a kick of burning CDs for friends. This is what we've got so far:
