Perfect Weeding Music: Your Mix CD Wanted

My library owns a wedding music CD with "PERFECT WEEDING MUSIC" on the spine (the publisher's typo, not a cataloguer's). When I mentioned this on Twitter, user surferrosa (Nanette Donohue) suggested a "perfect weeding"-themed CD swap for lib ppl and quickly put the below on swap-bot (see the post on swap-bot for more info):

Perfect Weeding Music: A Swap For Library Ppl
Swap Coordinator: user435 (contact)
Swap categories: Music
Number of people in swap: 1
Location: International
Last day to signup/drop: December 10, 2008
Date items must be sent by: December 31, 2008
Number of swap partners: 2
The idea for this swap came from a post to Twitter:

elloyd74 Typo on wedding music CD, I kid you not: "Perfect Weeding Music."

I thought...what an awesome topic for a CD swap for library people!

The deal: Create a mix CD featuring songs that you would consider "perfect weeding music." Songs that inspire folks to dig into their library's collection and get rid of the old, the outdated, the stuff that looks gross, smells bad, and is so dusty that you wonder if it's been touched in decades.

Each participant will send out two CDs (and each participant will receive two CDs in return). Items must be mailed by December 31, 2008.

Please feel free to publicize this swap on your blog, your Facebook page, your Twitter stream--the more the merrier!

If you have any questions, please e-mail nanette.donohue@gmail.com.

Happy swapping!
