A weblog about god, doubt, insomnia, culture, baseball


random songs

here's a pretty cool exercise (thanks to jim @ dappled things):
  1. open the music player on your computer or ipod
  2. set "all music" as your playlist
  3. select "shuffle" from the "play" pull-down menu
  4. list the song title and artist for the 1st ten songs that come up. jim says to 'fess up "no matter how embarrassing. that's right, no skipping that carpenters tune that will totally destroy your hip credibility. it's time for total musical honesty."
  5. if you get the same artist twice, you may skip repeat occurrences just for variety's sake
  6. post it in your 'blog and link back to @ least a couple of the other sites that suggested the exercise (makes me wish blogger had trackback)
mine are:
  1. "lost and found" - michael nyman (from the piano sountrack)
  2. "man @ the top" - bruce springsteen (from tracks)
  3. "my proud mountains" - john t. van zandt (poet: a tribute to townes van zandt)
  4. "mother india" - caedmon's call (share the well)
  5. "he thinks he'll keep her" - mary chapin carpenter (come on come on)
  6. "jewels" - alison krauss, suzanna cox (o sister 2: a women's bluegrass collection)
  7. "come back" - foo fighters (one by one)
  8. "last lullaby here" - george winston (forest)
  9. "the rush of wings" - metamora (winter's solstice, vol. 2)
  10. "half harvest" - michael penn (march)
and since i'm the only one playing our game as of 1.18.2005, i shall do it again, for i enjoy it immensely:
  1. "for all the saints" - christopher miner (the calm of paradise)
  2. "clearer" - garrison starr (eighteen over me)
