the mp3 roulette

This is based on a previous post.

Here are the rules:

1. Open your mp3 player application.
2. Select the "shuffle" feature. "Shuffle" your selection.
3. Log the 1st 10 songs (artist/album) in the response to this post.
4. Do NOT skip over that embarrassing song that came up. You MUST list the 1st 10 songs. Only exception is if you have an artist or album that is repeated.
5. Log your 10 songs in your own blog and encourage others to play this game.

My list tonight:

1. Losers (First Try) / The Cardigans / The Other Side Of The Moon
2. Dancin' / 8½ Souvenirs / Twisted Desire
3. Hollywood / Los Lonely Boys / Los Lonely Boys
4. It's Only Love / The Beatles / Anthology 2 (Disc 1)
5. Sympathetic Character / Alanis Morissette / Supposed Former Infactuation Junkie
6. Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing / Vince Gill & Gladys Knight / Rhythm Country & Blues
7. Down Under / Men At Work / Brazil
8. Christmas Time is Here / Diana Krall / Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
9. Travelin' Light / Robert Earl Keen / Walking Distance
10. Mercenary Girl / Fastball / Keep Your Wig On

Hmmm... a few artists appearing in this shuffle made the last shuffle: Diana Krall, Men At Work, The Beatles,
8½ Souvenirs, Fastball. Also, I seem to have a lot Texas musicians. Both lists had 4 -- can you guess which ones?

Sorry if this is a repeat...

From the family Reed IPod:

1. "Slow Hands" - Interpol
2. "New World Man" - Rush
3. "The Best is Yet to Come" - Frank Sinatra/Count Bassie
4. "That's All" - Genesis
5. "Jane Says" - Jane's Addiction
6. "Rocket Man" - Elton John
7. "Nothing Left to Say" - Fates Warning
8. "Heart of Glass" - Blondie
9. "19th Nervous Breakdown" - Stones
10. "Its the End of the World As We Know It" - REM

I do believe we could derive some sort of psychological profile from these shuffles...

Hmmm, If I were to diagnose this patient, I'd say "disengaged as a result of repressing anger and disillusionment with the world at large, often looks to fantasy for models of the ideal".

Here's another game. The #1 song on your birthday of your high school graduation year defines your love life. Mine is "Sweet Child O' Mine" --
Guns N' Roses. What's yours?

#1 top 40 hit July 1985:

Raspberry Beret - Prince and the Revolution.
