Mixitup and Playme Now! #9

Series 1 – Game 9 – 14th June 2020


Welcome to Mixitup and Playme Now!

Do you remember the days of creating your own playlists on cassette tapes?? Wasn’t that awkward? I used to have to listen to the Top 40 on a Sunday and wait for my favourite songs to come up on the radio. The secret was to record the song you wanted and you had it captured on tape for future enjoyment for either your cassette player or as the years progressed your Walkmans.

All so antiquated now in consideration to the likes of our digital progressions eh? But good fun – and a real challenge to create the perfect recording, the perfect tape and of course – the perfect playlist mix!

Mixitup and Playme Now as a game is all about creating the perfect playlist but with a small twist and that is ‘to create a themed playlist only!’

Your task is to create a Playlist containing

10 song titles to the Theme of …

Life slowly boxed up!

“Leaving Home In A Cardboard Box!”
