We Try It: Fanmix Yourself

I think it’s been established that I’m a huge fan of 8tracks.com. As much as I’ve listened to it, I’ve never made a mix on it to share. Then I decided to make a mix for myself when the Fanmix Yourself meme starting showing up everywhere.

The Faxmix Yourself meme entails making a playlist with the following criteria, then publishing it on 8tracks.com:

  • [icon name=”icon-music”] A song that reminds you of your favourite season/day/month
  • [icon name=”icon-music”] A song that you prefer to listen to at night
  • [icon name=”icon-music”] A song that reminds you of someone you care about
  • [icon name=”icon-music”] A song that you cannot stand
  • [icon name=”icon-music”] A song that makes you feel like flying
  • [icon name=”icon-music”] A song that makes you feel like falling
  • [icon name=”icon-music”] A song that you listen to when you’re sad
  • [icon name=”icon-music”] One song that you’ve fallen in love with recently because of the lyrics
  • [icon name=”icon-music”] One instrumental song that you love
  • [icon name=”icon-music”] A song that you want to hear live
  • [icon name=”icon-music”] A song that is about something you love
  • [icon name=”icon-music”] A song that makes you want to run until you’re some place very far away
  • [icon name=”icon-music”] Two songs that always bring a vivid image of something to your mind (can be a place, an action, a person : walking under the sunshine, taking a train, climbing on your rooftop, your dog, anything)
  • [icon name=”icon-music”] Bonus: a song that you want to share with your followers

Signing up for Soundcloud and then allowing 8tracks.com to access your account allows you a lot more access to songs for your playlist. I found this out the hard way.

My fanmix is here. I actually had a lot of fun making it!

Have any of you done this? If so, share! If you haven’t, then make one and please share with the rest of us!
