I have been delighted to receive 10 whole CDs plus assorted extra bits and bobs. One arrived in a little packet from Royal Mail containing a survey about reasons for post. So this little project is now statistically significant. I'm processing the tracks now, about halfway through.

Everyone fears repeating the track that someone else picks. I, however, feel that this is cause for celebration; that certain songs can be so resonant to a particular theme, time, weather or time of year that people independently (in different continents, even) can select them. So, under the cut, is the January February EP with video links, so you can watch or not, look or not, as you wish.

Asobi Seksu - New Years
Annie Lennox - Cold
Josh Ritter - Snow is gone

Thanks enormously to bibliogirl, bloodlossgirl, bluedevi, buddleia, charleston, cleanskies, dotty, girlycomic, oxfordhacker, pomma_penses. Your CDs will be in the post just as soon as I can track down a 10-sided die, for correct randomisation.

I think I was feeling a bit busy when this started, but will there be another round?

Yes, the next theme will be posted -- well, tomorrow, probably. And of course you are welcome to join in :)

Oh good you got it then!

I almost put "Listen, The Snow Is Falling" by Galaxie 500 on mine but I put that on rather too many mix CDs already. And I thought everyone else would too! That's the one that always comes into my mind on snow days.

And in fact once I decided that one was too overplayed (in my house, anyway) I avoided all mention of snow/coldness etc and opted instead for a selection of songs good for curling up on the sofa with like a "happy winter blanket", etc

You know, I don't think anyone put that on, in the end. It was on my long list, but didn't make the final cut.

Wow, Annie Lennox 'Cold' was one of my first choices, but didn't make the final cut because it didn't fit with the feel of the rest. :)

I'm really behind, I fear, by at least one album, possibly two.

Thanks for that, that was deeply disturbing.

Re: Off Topic but... you have to see this.
Oh, did you want me to burn you audio CDs or mp3 cds? Shouldn't be a prblem to exclude instrumentals either way

Re: Off Topic but... you have to see this.
Could I have audio cd's? I'm relying on this to save me from the dreadfully tedious weekend commute from London to Liverpool, and I only have a cd player in the car. (I do have one of those radio tuners for playing mp3's in the car but it doesn't work!)
