Wednesday Random 10

Since I went all wayback on Monday with my first grade birthday photos, I thought I’d pull a different meme off the shelf for today – one I used to do regularly but haven’t done in ages – the random 10. In case you’ve forgotten, here’s how it works:

Just start your iPod, iTunes, whatever music player you use, and write down the first ten tracks that come up. No cheating and skipping around until you get the cool songs.

And so, these are the first 10 songs that showed up on my iPhone today:

  1. “Caramia” – Indigo Girls
  2. “South Town Girls” – The Hold Steady
  3. “Lovin’, Touchin’, Squeezin'” – Journey
  4. “Think” – Information Society
  5. “Stupid Girl” – Garbage
  6. “Take on Me” – ah-ha
  7. “Trouble” – Shawn Colvin
  8. “Yellow Submarine” – The Beatles
  9. “Mindless” – The Soup Dragons
  10. “How Can a Poor Man Stand Such Times and Live” – Bruce Springsteen & the Seeger Sessions Band

Now it’s your turn: What are you listening to today?
