Blogs Are Random

Grab yer iPod, press shuffle, and what d'ya get? The meme of the moment! Inspired by Pinktalk and Clap Clap Blog, originated somewhere or other in the blogosphere.

The rules:
1. Open up the music player on your computer.
2. Set it to play your entire music collection.
3. Hit the "shuffle" command.
4. Tell us the title of the next ten songs that show up (with their musicians), no matter how embarrassing. That's right, no skipping that Carpenters tune that will totally destroy your hip credibility. It's time for total musical honesty. Write it up in your blog or journal and link back to at least a couple of the other sites where you saw this.
5. If you get the same artist twice, you may skip the second (or third, or etc.) occurances. You don't have to, but since randomness could mean you end up with a list of ten song with five artists, you can if you'd like.

1. Travelin' Prayer - Dolly Parton
2. Monkey Gone to Heaven - Frank Black & the Catholics
3. Flyrod - Tortoise
4. These Are the Ghosts - The Bees
5. Spongebob & Patric Confront the Psychic Wall of Energy - Flaming Lips
6. Up on the Roof - Laura Nyro
7. I Wanna Dance With Somebody - David Byrne (covering Whitney)
8. We're Comin' to America - Neal Diamond
9. Execution Day - The New Pornographers
10. An Open Letter to NYC - The Beastie Boys

Wow, my random list is so white! Would it help to say my next song was "99 Luft Problems" by Jay-Zena? Prolly not. And you, iPod owner? What's on your list?

3.) Chori Chori Gori Se - Jimi MInistry
4.) Coffeepot - Cajmere
5.) Ventura Highway - America
6.) Engine Heart - Mirah

8.) Midnight Creeper - Elton John
9.) Something's Gone Wrong Again - The Buzzcocks
10.) Walkie Talkie Man - Steriogram

Boy, how wrong is that mix?!
