Shuffling Along

It seems I had a sense early on today that I’d make it to bedtime without coming up with a proper (read: potentially slightly interesting) blog post, because as I set my iPhone to shuffle at the office, I made note of the first 10 songs to play.

Yes, the random 10 is making a return engagement. In case you’ve forgotten the rules, here they are:

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.

Here’s what I got:

1. Bridge Over Troubled Water – Simon & Garfunkel

2. Daydream Believer – The Monkees

3. Empire State of Mind – Jay-Z, featuring Alicia Keys

4. Ireland – Garth Brooks

5. Head to Toe – Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam

6. Tom Cruise Crazy – Jonathan Coulton

7. Lucky Town – Bruce Springsteen

8. The Perfect Space [Live] – The Avett Brothers

9. This Hard Land – Bruce Springsteen

10. Leaving on a Jet Plane – John Denver

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?
