I saw this trade on someone else's ratings list and thought it was a great idea, I am going to 'tweek' the idea slightly.

On iTunes, there is a playlist that automatically appears along the left side of the window called "Top 25 Most Played" - if you click on there you will see all the songs that you have played most often - you can adjust it to the top 50, but it's still called 'Top 25!'

So, for this swap, I would like everyone to just create the playlist for 2 full CDs with the top played songs from that most played list - the same one for each partner. This is not limited to iTunes folks only - but I don't know how it works with other music programmes...

So the 'rules', only 1 track by each artist, so you may have played one album/artist to death and have several listings so please exclude the lower ranking entries. 1 classical track - this is a track with no words, it may be ambient and not strictly classical etc... but just one track with no singing. Only one track more than 5 mins.

If we were trading CDs then this would be where you Rip those CDs and have them ready to go! But since we are not please get ready a playlist, with the artist and track name - again iTunes can do this for you! and on that playlist please write the number of times each track has been played. You can prepare anything else you wish to send to your partner.

Please have a rating of 4.5 or more and sign into swapbot the week prior to the closing date. Newbies with a full profile are welcome, provided they message me! Thanks to skwerl81 for giving me permission to do this trade.

16 March - Edited - This trade has been amended in line with the concerns on the forum, We are no longer trading a CD with this trade - but should you wish to send your partner anything in the envelope that is your choice.

this is a great idea, and im totally up for joining, but read the forums...i think they're trying to outlaw doing mix CD swaps :'[

Thanks for the message, I've amended the trade to no longer specify a burnt CD.

so we can send a cd? =]

I'm a bit confused, if we aren't sending a CD, what do we send? :S

dawnu 03/21/2010 #

The trade is for the playlist, you can decide to send a CD of the playlist your self....

how can we switch it to top 50 on itunes?

dawnu 03/25/2010 #

In itunes, FILE, EDIT SMART PLAY LIST, 4th row Check the first box, then increase to 50 then ITEMS select by MOST OFTEN PLAYED I believe the only thing that needs changing is the 50 from the default 25 - shout if you need any more help

whoo hoo....I actually have a list of music that I listen to most!

emeche07 03/30/2010 #

so we can ONLY have one instrumental song? and ONLY one over five minutes?

So, how do we "change" the play lists. I got how you do the 50 but then If you can only have one instramental ( I have 5 of them) and I have 5 that are over 5 min. Not only that of the most played ones, many are no longer a favorite. LOL Do I simply make a new playlist? I just need some direction before I decide that I can do this.

I really wish I had read this better before I joined. I just went through my Top 100 played (100, not 50) and weeded it out. I have a list of 19.

And does it count if I have the same song twice, but by different artists?
