The Ipod Shuffle

Cara posted a challenge to the Diabetes Online Community earlier this week. Today my good friend Karen posted her list and I wanted to join in. So below is the first 20 songs my iPod decided to shuffle in. I have also added my commentary since I can never seem to shut my mouth.

Cara’s hope is that in doing this we will learn a little more about each other.

I hope this goes good because you may not like me when you are done with this list.

1. By My Side – Godspell Soundtrack - This CD has become my life lately. Funny that this is the first in my list.
2. Beercan – Beck This is off of Mellow Gold and it a total dance song. Love. It!
3. When I Come Around – Green DayThere is a funny theme happening.
4. Salute Your Solution – The RaconteursJack White can really do no wrong in my book.
5. I Could Sing of Your Love Forever – Delirious?Oh I feel like dancing. It’s foolishness, I know.
6. Anxiety – Black Eyed PeasWhy have I not deleted this song? LOL
7. Planet Earth – Duran DuranThe band so good they named them twice.
8. This is How We Do It – Montell JordanThis, my friends, is a JAM!
9. Into the Mystic – Van MorrisonHe is one of my favorite singers of all time.
10. With Rejoicing Hearts – Jaime CortezThis guy came to my sister’s church and performed this song among others. It was awesome.
11. You Are My King (Amazing Love) – NewsboysThere is a lot of Christian songs shuffled in. A sign?
12. I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For – U2Bono is a hero of mine.
13. Island in the Sun – WeezerI always forget how much I like them.
14. I Want It That Way – Backstreet BoysAnd there it is! Hey, I WORK this song on Karaoke.
15. Broken Hearted Hoover Fixer Sucker Guy – Glen HansardFrom one of my favorite films, “Once.”
16. Bittersweet Symphony – The VerveAhh, this brings back memories.
17. Is There Any Love in Your Heart? – Lenny KravitzThis is from back when Lenny was a good musican imho.
18. Whip It – DevoThis is the strangest shuffle ever.
19. No Vaseline – Ice CubeYeah, he was not so nice to the fella’s from NWA but then again, I don’t think they were nice back.
20. Devil Inside – INXSKick is such a great album.

When you look at the first song on this list and the last one, I think you get a good picture of who I am. Not perfect. Good and Bad. This is actually a really good representation of who I am. Very eclectic and all over the place, like a DJ with ADD.

I would love to read your lists. If you have time over the weekend do one of your own and post a comment so I can check it out!

Thanks Cara for the great idea!

I am loving your list! It's a good mix. :)

I told Karen I don't have an ipod because I don't know when or where I'd ever listen to it. The picture certainly offers me a possibility though.

Cool to see your list :)

George said...

Cara- Thanks, I am a nutty guy.

LeeAnn - My comment to Cara has nothing to do with that picture. I just found it but man is it funny or what!?!?

CALpumper said...

Awesome list.

No iPod here.

But I would listen to every song in that shuffle, gladly, over and over again.

any list that includes song #9 makes me love that person that much more!

good list... though... the Devo??

Lora said...

Backstreet Boys--there it is, indeed. Loved the list. Van Morrison is a personal favorite of mine, as well. I can't do my shuffle list at work--I tend to start singing along and desk-dancing to the songs. I'm doing mine this weekend.

Van the man - how much better can it get?
I was feeling very stresed today about job security and once I started thinking about music my mood instantly brightened.
Can't find my Ipod, but did a shuffle off my ITunes.

Your list was a diverse as mine! :-D I love Mystic and Amazing Love - 2 of my favs!

Karen said...

What a fun list. Chalk me up as antoher Van-Fan!! Thanks for reminding me that I need to put Into the Mystic on my iPod too. I put that on the DJs "must-play" list for my wedding - uummm, okay, I mean "our" wedding, but I pretty much picked everything out anyway. Especially the music - Pete's music taste is mostly terrible. :)

Major Bedhead said...

Van rocks. Great list (although, heathen that I am, I don't recognize the Christian music).

Mine's up if you want to check it out.

Recently diagnosed type 1 (age 45) - RE: Van Morrison - have you ever listened to his album "Astral Weeks"? If you like Into the've got to listen to Astral Weeks.
