I'm trying to walk the line between songs ABOUT my town, and songs that I actually LIKE. It's harder than I thought. But fun!

Hehe sounds like we're haveing similar problems. A lot of the songs on my umbrella list seem to be songs that would make more sense to me then to the town. Ah well I'll just have to listen to them all and sort through. Yahoo.

I feel ya...I had to force myself to avoid those songs that defined my time in high school and actually had nothing to do my town or anyone else! :-P  It's starting to work, though

ive had the same problem as well! its sort of like, this song reminds me of my first kiss. which happened in my town...no, no that's not ok. ive only gotten about six so far, and i have to make sure that im not just using things because they name the town, but its getting me to explore my itunes at least.

most of the songs I'm using so far are by bands from or based in my city, rather than about my city.

i'm using mostly local bands, but i had to ditch some fabulous tracks (one i REALLLLLLY wanted to use sampled the sounds of my favourite cafe) because they just didn't sound perth-y.

and i'm importing some outsiders' tracks coz they do sound right.

(btw, i'm new to this whole thing. when do we find otu who we're sending to?)

I was planning to have already sent you the info on who you would be sending to.  Unfortunately, I procrastinated a little, so you probably will not have them until sometime this weekend.  I have to drive from Chicago to DC  and once I get home (either late tonight or tommorow) I will send them out. 

ETA:  I am back home now!  I am going to figure out the send-tos tonight, and will send them to each of you as soon as possible.

yeah, I've decided local bands are a good idea as well.  I also tried this trick: think of 5 words to describe your town and the people in it, then think of songs that correspond with those words.  I've gotten a few good tracks from that.  Good luck to all!

I have send each of you a PM with the name and address of the person you are sending to.  Remember, it is supposed to be a surprise for them - so please don't go sending them notes letting them know it's you.

If you do not have a PM from me please let me know as soon as possible and I will try to fix the problem.

Also, I forgot to include in indvidual messages who wanted what type of CD.  Please do not burn your discs until I let you know - I wouldn't want you wasting blank CDs all willy-nilly.

I was wondering, are people going to include something explaining why each song is relevant?  I thought about doing it, but I wasn't sure if it was something we were doing...?
