Shuffling Along

>> Thursday, July 30, 2009

An old friend from work tagged me on Facebook for a music meme. I'm pretty in love with my MP3 so I actually did this one. The rules were simple - set your MP3 on shuffle and write down the first 15 songs that come up.

I linked to as many as possible in Amazon so you can have a bit of a listen if you're curious. Here's what I got. . .

1. Short Skirt, Long Jacket - Cake (favorite line: with fingernails that shine like justice)

3. Brandy (You're a Fine Girl) - Looking Glass (I always turn the radio up for this one)

7. Penguin Lament - John Ondrasik (both this and #6 are from Dog Train by Sandra Boynton)

8. Ob-la-de, Ob-la-da - The Beatles (annoying - Amazon sells a million versions of this song - but none by The Beatles)

12. You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch - Sixpence None the Richer (I couldn't find a place to preview the song - too bad - there's a reason I listen to it all year)

13. The Cover of Rolling Stone - Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show (I always picture Dr. Teeth & the Electric Mayhem when I hear this song) (hey - I just found out this was also written by Shel Silverstein - thanks Wikipedia!)

14. My Favorite Things - Nathan (such a pretty version)

Hmmm. . . I don't know what this says about me. And I'm shocked that no They Might Be Giants came up - sometimes I think they fill half my playlist.

Anyone else want to play?
