Okay, time to get this started again for 2010.

For this swap you will be creating cds. Each cd must contain a minimum of 15 songs (can contain more). Each song must fulfill one of the categories noted below. You must include a track listing as well as an explanation as to which category the song fulfills. (This time around you also HAVE to include an extra page in the package with a little story as to why you put certain songs with categories #s 6, 7, 12, 19 and 20 (even if it's just a few lyrics to help explain the reasoning or a sentence or two)).

You will have 2 partners and will be sending a cd to each partner.

Newbies are welcome. No unexplained recent ones and you must have signed into swapbot at least 2-3 days before I assign partners. This is international since postage should not be much.

Okay, those are the rules, now on to the categories:

  1. A sarcastic song.
  2. A song from a kids’ movie.
  3. A song that includes some whistling.
  4. A song sung by an actor/singer.
  5. A song that includes either na-na-na-na or la-la-la-la.
  6. A song that says exactly what you wish you could say to someone in your life (now or in your past).
  7. A song that has lyrics that make you go “heh?”
  8. A song sung by someone you had/have a crush on.
  9. A song that you might play if you were nodding off while driving, to wake yourself up.
  10. A song that mentions a season either in the title or the lyrics.
  11. Your favourite Queen song.
  12. A song that you would play on a badass roadtrip to total debauchery.
  13. A song sung by an American Idol contestant.
  14. A song that makes you want to be 16 again.
  15. A song that you think would suit as background music for a grown-up sit-down dinner.
  16. A song that you think would suit as background music for a brunch with lots of children.
  17. A song that you think would suit as background music for a big cocktail party.
  18. A song that talks about a grandparent.
  19. A song that puts you in your parents’ living room growing up.
  20. A song that you’d put on a mix cd for your best mate.

Thanks to candigirl, hipmama1970 & finderror for the ideas. Also, I plan to do at least 6 of these this year so feel free to PM or leave a comment below if you have any ideas.

Have fun!

trinaree14, up to you to interpret it how you will. Perhaps some lyrics? Perhaps the tone?

a song that reminds you have a tough time during your child hood

is an idea for a future scavenger hunt also a song sung by an artist you've seen in concert a song you danced to at your wedding, or would like to at your future wedding a song you'd like to have played at your funeral

Thanks so much, ifluctuate. I've used a few of those in previous scavenger hunts but not all of them. Thanks.
