Using music as an icebreaker

I thought I'd repeat an idea I had a few months back which I believe is great for helping students get to know each other at the start of a course. Ask each student to create their own music cd (audio or mp3) which they bring in to the class. They explain to the other students or the teacher what the music means to them. Alternatively, we try to guess which student brought in which cd.

Then the students swop and copy the music onto their computer and hence you can get a killer music collection in a matter of weeks. Just don't tell the music companies, it's our secret, ok?

It's good to see this site is drawing interest from abroad, but where are my fans in the southern hemisphere ? LOL.
