02/26/2004: "Music Shuffle!"

OK, I read this somewhere and tried it myself. If you have a library of music on your computer and the ability to play all of it in random order (I happen to use iTunes on my Mac, but I think most mp3 players do this). Start it up and hit play. Now write down the first ten songs it plays, NO MATTER HOW EMBARRASSING. I decided to go for 15 and although some of you out there might think my list is strange,let's see yours then.

1) MC Solaar - Paradisiaque
2) Veruca Salt - Fly
3) Aphex Twin - Journey (Aphex Twin Care Mix)
4) Cake - Nugget
5) Felix Da Housecat - Happy Hour
6) Roni Size - It's a Jazz Thing
7) Kosheen - Slip & Slide Suicide (Decoder Mix)
8) Kosheen - Hungry (DJ Tiesto Vocal Mix)
9) Marilyn Manson - Rock Is Dead
10) Tenacious D - Double Team
11) Gus Gus - Your Moves Are Mine
12) The White Stripes - Cannon
13) Inflatable Boy Clams - Marin
14) Kosheen - Hide U
15) Black Flag - Rise Above
The only surprise here was that it played three Kosheen songs. Well, there are a lot of Kosheen songs in the library, but I have more of other bands that didn't even play. Hmmm. Oh, and that's out of a total of 1675 songs in the library!

Are you trying to break an 'Obscure Band and Song" record? Congrats, buddy, I deem you the winner. Huzzah!!

That's random for ya. It's funny that by chance it didn't play any of "the hits" on my list. I would have been tempted to edit the list if a certain song mentioning a certain instant film would have been played.

Wow. I am only familiar with Cake.

I am not as diverse as I would like to believe, eh?

A pretty hearty list.

I'm listening to iTunes here at work, but I'll wait till I'm home to do a similar list as my laptop here doesn't have enough of my collection on it to be fair.
