Valentine's Day Spectacular

Here's an example of the many little-known legal ways to get free music off the web: cdbaby.com lets you download the first two minutes of many of the songs on the CDs they sell. As an added bonus, you can download all the songs from an album at once, queue it up in Windows Media Player (I know, yuck), and listen to a dozen half-songs. With some genres, you don't even miss the resolutions. When you think about it, they truncate songs like that on the radio all the time.

Over at cdbaby they also sort their songs into different "flavors" to fit your mood or situation. One particularly appropriate such flavor is "To Have Sex To":
Self-explanatory, though I'm sure everyone has their own definition. Ours is somewhere between Barry White, Sade, and the Girl from Ipanema. Sensual and sexy. Get your groove on.

The Peet and I, forever ago, wanted to make a c.b. CD. The idea is that if your roommate is about to get it on, and you're against it (for extenuating reasons I don't need to explain here), you would play said CD.

Here are some of the tracks

1. Grand Old Flag
2. Theme from Star Wars
3. Queen - We Are the Champions
4. Flight of the Bumblebee
5. Raffi - Baby Baluga
6. Theme from Charlie Brown

Got any suggestions? I'm going to burn them and then market them at CS106A lecture, see if I can make a few quick bucks.
