I've seen this done many times with 10 songs, but I think 5 is better; it's quicker and easier. Being both busy and lazy, this is very appealing to me!

Here's how it works:

1) Poster A names a theme. The theme can be about subject matter(i.e., SONGS ABOUT WAR) or about words found in the title or lyrics(i.e., RIVER).

2) Poster B names 5 songs pertaining to Poster A's theme

3) Poster B names a theme

4) Repeat
