Pick a number and I'll listen


I've been driving around with the same old CD's in my car for too long, so it's time to take them all out and pop in some new ones. However, since I tend to grab the same over and over again, I need your help in selecting some new music. It's not hard at all, just read along :

I've got about 250 CD's in the rack, and let's say I need 32 CD's to listen to in the car. Everyone who wants to play along can pick three numbers between 1 and 250, and I'll take the CD corresponding with your picks and let you know which one it is. However, to make things a bit more random and to prevent ending up with 6 Madonna albums, your numbers should be at least 30 positions apart from each other. Example? Ok!

1 - 72 - 240 would be a good range of picks.
62 - 81 - 100 would not be, since there is no real spread between them.

I don't know whether it'll be fun, but I'd be rediscovering my cd collection and you'd be discovering my rather broad and possibly strange choice in music :)


am curious: 23, 48 and 99

102 - 222 - 249

Thanks for the participation ladies, and here are the albums you've picked for me.

23 - UFOrb (The Orb)
48 - Steam (East 17)
99 - Debut (Björk)
102 - Post (Björk)
222 - This is not a test! (Missy Elliott)
249 - The Soul of R&B (Various)

The "48" pick from Jody was not according to the spread I had in mind, but as it was sufficiently different from the two others, I decided to use it anyway.

Only 26 more albums to go :)
