Despite having other things to do, I spent some time last night making up some new mix CDs. I’m spending a lot more time in the car these days and sometimes the babbling idiots on the radio MUST be silenced.
I tend to try and theme things, either by pace, volume or genre. However I always seem to have trouble naming them. I’m not a fan of “Mix CD #21” as a naming convention because I invariably forget which one is which. Not a problem if they are just a grab-bag of anything and everything but a bit of a hassle when you want a few quiet tracks after a stressful day and end up with Metallica and Rage Against the Machine blaring out at you.
Anyone got any suggestions? I’m fine if I limit things to, for example, 3 or 4 bands. Last night I burnt a CD that was titled “Radio Musings on Pearl Fighters” which was limited to four bands, but I also burnt two others which were a mix of tracks from entirely different artists… they are currently unlabelled.
Or perhaps I should just learn to write REALLY small and just list the tracks on the CD itself.
