10 Random Songs
For lack of time & effort needed to make a real blog post, here are the first 10 songs that showed up in a shuffle:
1. "Seven" by James, from "Seven". Ok, good, not embarrassing, just kind of an oldie.
2. "Car Radio" by Spoon, from "A Series of Sneaks". Nice! I like it. 5 stars. Did you this guy lives in Portland now? I saw him at a bar. This is going well.
3. "Mute Witness" by Morrissey from "Kill Uncle". Oh crap. The worst song from the worst album. Next!
4. Ok, there's no way that I'm the only guy in a band that wants to hear what he sounds like live, am I? These live recordings that we sometimes get, I usually just listen through once to make sure it sounds alright.
5. "It's in our hands (live)" by Bjork from "Vespertine Live" Back on track with Bjork. You know, I got several live albums from her on emusic.com, and after listening to it, I really prefer the studio recordings. She's great, either way.
6. "Better than Most" by AC Newman from "The Slow Wonder" I don't even know what to say about this; I haven't listened to it much. He's good, but I prefer him with The New Pornographers.
7. "Suite Bergamasque I Prelude" by Claude Debussy from "Claude Debussy". Debussy is great and puts me in a great, peaceful, reflective mood. I used to listen to this cd a lot in high school, while doing homework.
8. "Skit #1" by Kanye West from "Late Registration". I don't think I've listened to this track all the way through, ever. And I won't start today.
9. "Drug Ballad" by Eminem from "The Marshall Mathers LP". Holy crap, how did this get on my ipod? I think this was on a mix for a party once. ...Eh with a capital "..."
10. "How Great is our God" by Chris Tomlin from "Arriving" Ah, christian rock. I don't really listen to much of this genre. I learned this to play with my longtime friend Jeremy Thom. If you are a theist, then you'd agree that God is great, yes? I mean if He's got the whole world in his hands, then he must be pretty big. And have gigantic fingernails. And have hangnails the size of Rhode Island.
