The Shazam Project.

The latest in a series of Perfect Ideas Crafted by Yours Truly: The Shazam Project.

I just recently unveiled this to Deb who liked it enough, but YT realized the patter, the sell, must be improved upon for this Perfect Idea/Project to soar, to tantalize like a well-lit Vegas buffet.
Although, ultimately, more healthful and satisfying than said buffet.

The Shazam Project, for proponents of the iPhone and the app Shazam (and other, lesser smarty-pants phones):
Look at the ten last Shazamed songs on your iPhone.
Purchase, download, and burn them onto ten discs.
Share and/or swap discs with ten friends.

My own ten, presently, are:
- I Feel Love, Donna Summer.
- Stereo, John Legend
- Takin' Care of Business, BTO
- Dream Weaver, Gary Wright (longtime guilty pleasure, had to Shazam it in a 21st-C move to ownership)
- Sometime Around Midnight, The Airborne Toxic Event
- Last Parade, Matthew Good
- Berenice: Cadrò, Ma Qual Si Mira, Cecilia Bartoli
- Situation, Yazoo
- He Loves Me, Jill Scott
- Imma Be, The Black Eyed Peas.

Now that is a Perfect blend.
Time to wend toward the hallowed halls of art moderne for a meeting of brunch minds.

Shazam. Love. Burnt.
