i'm in the process of making one now. it's rather fun.
it's all i can look at
The concept is "fall in love with me please".
of a relationship, and and and i can't seem to find anything in the middle. i'm thinking of turning it into a threesome esque story by putting the big u in the middle. oh decisions.
i meant love triangle. of course.
one of those where the song titles make a story is it?
'Hello' - Lionel Ritchie
'You sexy thing' - Hot chocolate
'I am the one and only' Chesney Hawkes
'For you' I am kloot
the lyrics tell a story.
"girlfriend" - it's actually really cool.
you'd never make me one, rather than just 'you've already got all the same music anyway' </3
boys are funny
I made an animal-themed one for DiS user noiseaddict ages ago.
have Def Leppard - 'Animal' on it?
it had 'Birdo' by Horse the Band and it started off with a Napoleon Dynamite quote which I found amusing at the time.
songs that I like by different artists.
We pick a theme and swap CDs! It's ace! :)
"look at me I'm so sensitive, don't you just wanna bone me!"
That was my concept. It didn't work.
the story was set in the future where due to civil strife/unrest mankind decided to abandon earth and live amongst the stars.
I say kind of because the reason I started making it originally was rather different.
despite my best efforts at editing it still sounds incredibly pretentious ah well
it sounds ace.
despite it being 2 years old now

when she was doing biomedicine. it was fucking amazing
girl you have no faith in medicine
and, get this, GIRL ON THE WING by the shins!! i was beyond happy with that one
for TheSoundofBastards. My theme is Games Workshop. So far, all I've got is a 3 Inches of Blood album and some Bolt Thrower MP3s. I may have to re-think this.
how many songs are you aiming for?
until I fill about 70 minutes I guess! I normally try and cram as much onto a disc as possible. You get yer moneys worth with my mixes.
if that counts. was pretty ace if memory serves.

Most of the taps or what ever I make have some kind of theme or story once they get going.
jim, i've been trying to find out who the sonicminefield blog belonged to, after seeing some links over to my place, its really good i've give you a good plug. keep up the good work.
the old school house/disco DJ before those genres even existed use to make a story thru the night in the club with every record he played.
Last year I on my walk to/from work I went through my iPod (5000+ songs) alphabetically by artist over the year.
have a touch of OCD.
a boy made me a concept cd about death called "i hope you don't die". cheery. i don't make mix cds for ppl v often cos im lazy. normally my theme is, "i like rly cool music, r u impressed?".
It makes me feel really cool. But I'm actually not.
Back to the Future and Ghostbusters themed respectively.
this time last year I made a 'summer' themed mixtape. There are loads of songs about summer, it is a great concept.
It's far more of a challenge than "here are some songs I like". I'm guessing even if they haven't directly gone about it everyone's made themed lists too.
last summer (I was living in doncaster). it was mainly prewar blues stuff about mississippi bank burstings. And Flood by The Sisters Of Mercy.
