Wednesday Random Ten

I’m stealing this post idea from MsP, partially because I am curious to see what the iPod will grab, but mostly because I am doing very boring work today and this will allow me to think about something else every few minutes as I type another song name.

So here’s the deal:

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.

Easy enough, I think. Here goes…

1. “The Letter,” Kristin Hersh
2. “Beestung,” Kristin Hersh
3. “I’ll be that Girl,” Barenaked Ladies
4. “Florida,” Patty Griffin
5. “Heat of the Moment,” Asia
6. “Girl in the War,” Josh Ritter
7. “Mystery Man,” Brisa Roché
8. “At My Most Beautiful,” R.E.M.
9. “Excitable Boy,” Warren Zevon
10. “Headache,” Liz Phair

Well, that’s good, nothing too embarrassing came up, because I know I would have been tempted to violate the rules and skip. But what’s weird is that I have five or six thousand songs on my iPod, only about ten of which are by Kristin Hersh, since I only have one album by her. And yet I get two tracks in a row? Weird.

    I’ve never heard of Brisa Roché. Any good?

    I don’t know; that’s the only song I have by her (it’s from a compilation CD that comes with a magazine I get). I think today may have been the first time it actually came up on shuffle. I did like it, though.

    Wasted – Brandi Carlile
    Make This Go on Forever – Snow Patrol
    Downpour – Brandi Carlile
    Tennessee – Mindy Smith

    iPod…*sniff*…I do miss mine. It disappeared so thoroughly that I’m resigned to having to buy a new one, but I can’t pull the trigger yet.

    I’ll see if I can do this through the iTunes desktop later tonight, but I suspect it will come up with 10 Broadway tunes…

    OK, so I broke down and bought a new iPod. and my ten, as I predicted, is almost all Broadway:

    76 Trombones – The Music Man
    Public Enemy Number .1-Das Barbequ
    A Little House For Me – Das Barbequ
    Wick – The Secret Garden
    Lullaby of Broadway – 42nd Street
    Barbecue for Two – Das Barbequ
    Move Along – All-American Rejects
    GoodNight My Someone – Music Man
    Scene: Mary’s Sitting Room-The Secret Garden
    Impossible/Its Possible – Cinderlla

    Random my butt.
