Welcome to Mixitup and Playme Now!
Season 3 – 2021 – 1stQ –
 Game 10

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!’

Our task is to create a Themed Playlist containing
Song titles to the Theme of …

“The Weird Dreams That Keep Waking You Up At Night …. “”

So there we go folks – your challenge is set – in the comments section below drop your 5 – 7 suggestions and let’s get together and create ourselves a wonderfully weird and wacky playlist to the theme … “The Weird Dreams That Keep Waking You Up At Night …. “”

Have yourselves a real Howdy Podner Day folks!

  1. If it wasn’t for your daily announcing, I wouldn’t know what day it is. 😁
    I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing though.

      1. Is it a good thing?
        Robinson Crusoe felt the need to mark off the days of his 23 year isolation. When he was sick with fever, he found later he was four days behind – time lost.
        When we changed from the Julian to Gregorian calendars, people believed the authorities were depriving them of eleven days!

        It all started with Genesis, when god did a different task on each day of the week. Before the Big Bang there wasn’t any time – or too much of it. And on Venus, its day is longer than its year.

  2. Ah, “Strange Fruit” , written by a white Jewish guy from The Bronx and Billie Holiday’s signature song and still controversial to this day. But then, The Shirelles. I hope you are feeling better and that you will have fine Spring weather this weekend…

    1. Hey Grace, the weather is once more fine and l have some gardening planned in also before the weather is reputed to break tonight.

      Here’s wishing you a lovely Friday ahead 🙂

      Yes, ‘strange fruit’ was one of her biggest hits and was both powerful and influential and is still important today.

      The Shirelles, what’s not to enjoy.
