Acrostic Fanmix & Graphics  
Fan-mix for tv_universe Challenge 9x07.
Description: Create a fanmix for a character of your choice, using the acrostic method (ie: one song per letter of their name) Please choose a character whose name is at least five letters long (ie five tracks, minimum).

I made one for Edina from Absolutely Fabulous and an extra one for Patsy. I put them into one mix. The graphics are included here, but since they are not required for points I'll be submitting them separately as part of my entry for a single color-based graphics challenge at gameofcards that is going on right now.

Fanmix Notes
[(of little or no interest to anyone really)]
Edina's songs are Sixties-psychedelia-hippie-Nineties-New-Age-daydreamer-dance-party mix. Patsy's mix is a little odd & a lot flirtatious. One I included just because it mentions cigarettes.
If I couldn't find songs that fit the characters & the acrostics,  I picked songs they would enjoy if they were real (yes, I'm insane). Musicians the characters talked about (the Stones), or in Edina's case daydreamed about (P.P. Arnold, who performed "The First Cut is the Deepest" in the "The Last Shout"). I didn't pick any recording made after 2001 since I was thinking of season one through four at the time and fitting the song to the characters' lifetimes/timelines.
"Dreamland" is included because it precedes "Ride On Time" on Black Box's album, which was referenced in the French and Saunders sketch that later became Ab Fab.

Of course I know Edina is called  Eddy not Eddie, but I couldn't resist using that groovy Sixties song.
