Previously on AATG:

On Monday morning a theme (or not) is announced and everyone has until Friday lunchtime to upload *one* track as a fairly low bitrate MP3 file. Come Friday afternoon we'll hopefully have 10-15 tracks so everyone grabs all the files (or a selection thereof) and can burn them to a CD (or whatever) to listen to on the way home or over the weekend. The following Monday, all the files are removed and the whole process starts again.

This means everyone only has to choose one track (low commitment), everyone gets some new music for the weekend (high payback) and it doesn't matter a toss if you skip a week. \o/

Okay, so let's give this a go. I've set up 100MB of free storage at drop.io/aatgcmp to which anyone can upload audio files. (Obviously, 100MB isn't a great deal so let's keep those bitrates around about the 128kbps mark.)

Peej suggested the theme Hallowe'en, so we'll go with that. My contribution's already up but you have until Friday lunchtime so don't worry if you haven't got something half-decent at hand today.

Have fun.

My file seems to have ended up there twice for some reason. Can someone with admin rights delete one of them for me please?

I've uploaded a track, instrumental and unfortunately, its in bloody WMA as my freebie converter doesn't like MP3 any more. It is 9 megs but thens over 10 minutes. Feel free to delete it if its too large but play it at extreme volume if you download it :D

Uploaded. One of my favourite Halloween (or should that be Devil's Night) tunes of all time.

Some really good stuff there but whoever uploaded track 7 needs a solid kick in the testes :). Headphone warning! Headphone warning!

So far I'm liking that "Horror Show - Birthday Massacre" song.

I uploaded the predictable Little Ghost. Apparently the scariest thing my library search could come up with :)

I would have uploaded something nicer, but Dracula is the only Hallowen-ish title in my library.
It's quiet good for BP, though. :)

Just you wait till I get to chose the theme, mwuahaha :D


Which reminds me - far be it from me to pervert the nicey-nicey nature of this project - but how about the uploader of the most popular song gets to chose next week's theme?

How would we judge what the most popular song is?

Dunno, I was kinda hoping it'd be obvious like with the Birthday Massacre track, innit.

\o/

My contribution was going to be Bela Legosi's Dead by Bauhaus, but at just over ten minutes, I decided to go for something shorter and more upbeat instead. Glad you liked it.

My fave so far has been billdoor's symphonic Floyd track.

If I had it I'd also put up Tori Amos' cover of Eminem's 97 Bonnie & Clyde.

Things that go 'boom'? What with it being bonfire night this week.

Anything loud then, I guess. :)

Okay, on a less silly note - how about a videogame theme? Might as well get that over and done with.

So songs about games, or ones that clearly sample game sounds etc.

Tunes inspired by games or actual game music? Either or could be quite good.

Racking my brains trying to think who it was that did that really terrible "I've never been to Super Mario Land" tune back in the early 90s...but I don't think I'd want to inflict that on you lot.

I'm so putting up Sudden Death - My Atari.

And this is so offensive, it's funny.
