Give Me a T-H-E-M-E!

If I was to do the winter Burn It (my seasonal CD swap. You can view all related entries, including rules and such, here) in the next few weeks, what would be a good theme? Last spring was driving music, summer was "hot" music (sexy music, basically), and fall was Free For All Fall where there was no theme (and those that were in my group, I still need to mail your CDs out; I know, I suck). What's a good winter one? I had envisioned doing a kind of melancholy mix, but I'm just not in the mood for it. So, come on and give me some good ideas! (Btw, it doesn't necessarily have to relate to winter, but it can.)

how about a move your a$$ theme? No really, something that makes you want to get up, dance and sing really loud. ?

i think another "hot" theme ... but more like a "thaw" theme. something that will "thaw your ass". hehe.

or maybe "seasonal affective disorder (SAD) mix". kinda like your "melancholy" mix, songs that you listen to when you're blue.

Maybe you could make it a sad/SAD theme, then people could interpret it as they wanted - songs that they listen to when they're sad, songs that make them sad, songs that chase sadness away...

How about a soundtrack theme? Like your favorite songs from movie soundtracks?

Whatever theme you decide on, put me in a group that actually sends out CD's. ;)

I was just about to make a Soundtrack mix...another great idea someone suggested to me was a mix of only track 5s from different albums.

I've done a mix of songs with colors in the titles (nothing about "blues" - that's cheating) and another mix of songs with people's names in the titles. But for winter, I think a slow, sit-in-front-of-the-fire-and-drink-wine mix would be nice.

Winter sucks ass around here, so how about an *upbeat* theme? I guess the *Move your a$$* idea would be along the same lines!

"Favorite Soundtrack songs"
"Favorite sad songs"
"Driving Music"

And this is one I have been working on for a while. "Your own personal soundtrack"

You can only put songs it on that describe you. What "you" feel. What beliefs "you" have. They have to be songs where you say to other people "That is MY song!".
