Shuffle

I'm totally stealing this from Courtney. I've been tagged in similar notes on facebook to do this as well, but I decided to blog it because it'll end up on facebook anyway, right?


So I resisted the urge to skip songs (Madonna, ahem, my guilty pleasure... Little Women: it's instrumental!), but I did not skip! 


The bummer about not skipping is the repeats (John Lennon vs. John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band) and the fact that iTunes shuffle kind of plays the same artists over and over again, or the same kind of vibe of music. Most of the songs on the first list are songs you wanna listen to on a rainy day. Or music I haven't listened to in years (The Mars Volta). Well, you get what I mean...


The Rules:

1) Turn on your MP3 player or music player on your computer. 

(2) Go to SHUFFLE songs mode. 

(3) List the first 15 songs that come up (song title and artist) NO editing/cheating, please. Even if you might skip the song when it comes up or be embarrassed for people to know that it's in your collection, you still must list it.



My List (plus a B-side)
1. Jesus - The Velvet Underground
2. All Along the Watchtower - Bob Dylan

I have to admit that I'm not surprised that Bob Dylan showed up in all three lists, since he is my favorite. Although, I AM surprised that neither Neko Case nor Johnny Cash showed up (my other faves!) 


But then again, there are so many favorites that didn't show up.
