This will be the last MixChange Musical Scavenger Hunt I will be hosting for a while, so join in while it's still around! The other two rounds went really well, so I hope you're all still interested in doing these! :c)

OK, as usual, I have compiled a list of 30 themes for songs from the ever-popular MixChange randomizer (http://www.mix-change.com/randomtlisting.html). Your job is to create a unique mix containing songs which pertain to at least 15 of the themes listed. I would encourage seeing if you can go for more than just 15 or even all 30, though! But really, only 15 is required.

Cover art is cool, but not completely necessary. A track list IS necessary, though, with the song as well as the theme to which is pertains (which will take the guesswork out of listening to it! heh)

As for ratings, as usual, a 4.9 or above. Anything less will disqualify you, so don't try sneaking in with a 4.7 because I will be forced to remove you from this swap. Newbies welcome with a completed profile!

This is international, and you will have 2 partners.

OK, here goes the themes for this round:

A track that is about sending or receiving mail, letters, postcards etc.

A track with feminist lyrics.

A track by an artist who wears glasses.

A track with the name of a piece of furniture in the title.

A track by an artist who has had a musical career of over 20 years.

A track by an artist that you have met.

A track which is about alcohol.

A track that starts with the letter 'Z'

A track that is 10 minutes long or more.

A track that you have never ever listened to before (try looking on an album that you haven't listened to for years)... So, what d'ya think??

Open your iTunes/Media Player/iPod/mp3 player, and select 'shuffle': The first track that it chooses (and be honest).

A track which opens with a drum beat before any other instruments kick in.

A Joy Division song that ISN'T 'Love Will Tear Us Apart'

A track by a friend's band, or a local band.

A track that you loved when you were 15 years old.

A track that features the name of a day of the week in the lyrics.

A track with the name of a city in the title.

A track by a 'one-hit-wonder' band that ISN'T their 'one hit'.

A track with lyrics that are either in part or entirely in Japanese.

A track that is entirely instrumental (ie. no vocals!)

A track that you would put on a mixtape for a crush.

A track that is simply entitled 'Untitled'.

A track which is about a mode of transport.

A track that is about some kind of addiction.

A track by a solo artist who was previously famous as a member in a band.

A track that is about food.

A track with the name of a country in the title.

A track that starts with the words 'Your' or 'You're'

A track which is about the ocean.

A track from a live album.

Happy song hunting and mixing!! :cD

Hi I'm completely new, but i've filled out my profile. Will I be able to join this swap?

Yeah, as long as you have a completed profile, I'm allowing newbies in on this one! I know you need to start somewhere! ;)

Hi! Who has the official say on one hit wonders? I keep thinking of some I would consider one hit wonders and find out they had 4 more albulms and 2 more singles. Then on onehitwondercentral.com they have bands like faith no more who had lots of singles, tons of albums.

Well, I don't know.. For this theme, though, it's not supposed to be their biggest hit, but one that was lesser known. I interpret it as a single by a band that made it big with one or two songs, but then sort of disappeared. A lot of 80s bands did that, so take yr pick of those! lol
