MP3 Me

65 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

My buddy Hayseed invited me to play along via Facebook, but since I don't do Facebook, I'll do it here. Here's the deal:

Repost this note (if you want) and (at the very least) tag me. I want to see the results.

Once you've been tagged...

(1) Turn on your MP3 player or I guess your music player on your computer if you don't have an MP3 player.

(2) Go to SHUFFLE songs mode.

(3) Write down the first 15 songs that come up -- song title and artist -- NO editing/cheating, please.

Here's what came up for me:

1) Rococo -- Bela Fleck and the Flecktones

2) Vampires and Failures -- Grampaboy

3) Cheap Ain't Cheap (For Crying Out Loud) --

Scott Miller

4) Cello Sonata No. 4 in C Major, Opus 102, No. 1, Andante -- Ludwig Van Beethoven

5) Holland -- Sufjan Stevens

6) I Don't Care Who Knows -- Catherine Russell

7) Remembering Gamble -- Pierce Pettis

8) Gypsy Rover -- Boiled in Lead

9) Campus -- Vampire Weekend

10) New Brighton Promenade -- The Boo Radleys

11) I Can't Remember -- Vigilantes of Love

12) Cold Roses -- Ryan Adams

13) Another Morning -- American Music Club

14) Stumbling to Bethlehem -- Patti Scialfa

15) Classico -- Giant Sand

As far as I I'm concerned, TWR are THE forgotten band of the eighties. I will champion them until the day...

You're welcome.

Versus ! Excellent!

Oh yeah, I'm a big fan. Still haven't gotten into that crowd's other bands, but Versus were just fantastic. I think "Atomic Kid" might be one of my favorite songs ever.

It shouldn't make you feel too much better. You still admitted to the world that you listen to the Pee Wee's Big Adventure soundtrack. You don't come back from that. ;)
