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.

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.
