Itunes Challenge

Oh my, I've been tagged by my friend Jack Lumanog for an itunes challenge that sounds like a great opportunity to embarrass myself, and you all know I never like to miss one of those.

Here are the rules:

1. grab your preferred digital media player.
2. push play in shuffle mode.
3. report … the first 10 tunes that pop up.

Now I warn you, this experiment could turn ugly. If you do not like random 60s folk music, Polish choral music, Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, children's songs about pasta or Dan Fogelberg, then I implore you, look away now. Not that my list is guaranteed to include any of the above, but it might, and when the stakes are this high, it's best to give out a warning before you proceed.

Okay everyone, hold on to your keyboards, cause here we go:

1) Young Anymore, David Baerwald, "Bedtime Stories"
2) Careless Love, Madeleine Peyroux, "Careless Love"
3) #253 In the Red Brook/Bridge, Sons of the Never Wrong, "Consequences of Speech"
4) Heaven Right Here, Jeb Loy Nichols, "Just What Time It Is"
5) Elijah Rock, Atlanta Chorale, "The Jericho Project"

oooh. . . just 5 more to go!

6) Beautiful World, Colin Hay, "Company of Strangers"
7) Days Go By, Duncan Sheik, "Duncan Sheik"
8) Interlude, eastmountainsouth, "eastmountainsouth"
9) Book of Poems, Old 97s, "Satellite Rides"
10) Flood (Live), Jars of Clay, "Furthermore"

Whew. And we're done. Hopefully you're all still conscious.

Now it's my turn to tag some other people and see what they come up with:


Have fun!

Thanks for tagging me, but alas, I do not own a digital music player of any fashion, whether iPod or otherwise. I am so stuck in the last century. And the last CDs I put in the CD player were Disney movie soundtracks (Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Lion King and Mulan) and some Peter Cetera. Even the stuff I listen to on Internet radio like Pandora is all retro 80s stuff. Just for fun, I recently dialed up some bubble pop - The Bangles, Tiffany, Debbie Gibson, Belinda Carlisle. Ah, high school flashback.

I really liked the music from Once and Juno, though. Does that give me any semblance of coolness?

Awesome! Thanks for the info. I'm also a Colin Hay fan myself. Actually, the similarity between our musical tastes is pretty funny to me.
