Weekend Challenge: Old School Shuffle

Hello all! Unlike a lot of you whippersnappers, some of us old folks barely know what an ipod is and still have our music on CDs. Or cassette tapes. Or albums. 8-tracks, anyone?

For this challenge, pick a letter between A and Y (sorry, no artists beginning with "Z" in my collection.) I'll then pick a random CD by an artist whose last name begins with that letter and your prompts will be Tracks 2 and 6 from that CD.

You can pick up to three letters (or you can pick the same letter 3 times, or any combination of letters) so you'll get lots of options. (If I don't happen to have an artist with that letter, you'll get the previous letter instead.)

Easy, right? In return, I'll add to both of my challenge fics that are due this weekend. Nothing like leaving them to the last minute!

Okay folks, drop a needle on the vinyl, slip into your pencil skirt, and let's play!
