    Have fun!

    Be creative with the themes.

    Don’t play an album that has already been chosen for that day’s theme.

    If you miss a day, don’t worry jump in anywhere, come back when you’re able. I’ll have a prize for a randomly drawn individual who plays something everyday of the challenge.

    1. Pop (It's gonna be May) [Don't hate me.]
    2. First Kiss
    3. Metal
    4. Star Wars
    5. Lyrics
    6. A or B? A record you strongly prefer one side to the other.
    7. Red
    8. First album you would play to a newborn
    9. Album you would want played at your funeral
    10. For when you're feeling blue
    11. Calms you when feeling anxious/worried
    12. Gets you pumped/motivated
    13. Something for the moms in your life
    14. Thirty-three (Yesterday was my 33rd birthday)
    15. Yellow
    16. Random
    17. Decade of your birth
    18. Decade you graduated high school
    19. An album on which you could write a dissertation
    20. Would you look at that?!
    21. An album that takes you back to a *specific* memory every time you hear it
    22. Indie (Personally, I find the conversations arguing what is and isn’t indie to be fascinating. Play something you consider to be ‘indie’.)
    23. Favorite Color
    24. A record you went into blind/based off one song that didn’t disappoint.
    25. Road Trip
    26. BBQ
    27. Record you received as a gift
    28. In Memoriam
    29. Country/Folk
    30. Lost Love - an album you played so often you had to retire it for a bit.
    31. A record purchased in May

    I'm going to try to do this one every day, last one I got lost after a while because of life getting in the way. But I will commit to this one.

    Why would I hate you? I adore James Newell Osterberg Jr. and will gladly play him at the drop of a hat.

    Day 1 - Pop

    Look at these discs! Described in the press release as ‘contained explosion.’ Strangely, my brother and I swapped white discs as we each preferred the other's; mine having been severely lopsided with almost no red to one side, his almost perfectly even around the edges.

    Hahaha that made me laugh out loud next to my sleeping wife. I love your choice.

    I was mostly referring to the use of the NSYNC meme.

    "Be creative with the themes."

    I only need one good green light before I tend to floor it.

    Day 1 - Pop

    Okay, I will give this a try this month.

    Cam'ron -
    Purple Haze

    Just received this today as a late RSD arrival, and as Discogs lists it as "Pop Rap", I thought why not use it as my first entry. In my opinion, Roc-A-Fella Records was not only great but amazing in the early 00's, overall strong productions and this record even have some of Kanye's famous chipmunk soul, really just solid tracks.

    I have to choose Haim - Days are gone for today, as it is still my most spun and favorite pop record of the decade. Also a perfect May record.

    Day 1: It’s Gonna Be May! (Pop)

    Might as well go with the guy who’s indirectly responsible for the meme existing in the first place!
