iPod Roulette

It was great to see how many of you played along last week, and even greater to see that most of you readers have amazing playlists, or at least very good luck. So, here it is again this week: the Playlist Shuffle. Again, the rules are simple. Put your iPod or iTunes or primitive music software (Windows Media Player) on shuffle and jot down the first ten songs that pop up. No cheating, no lying, honesty is the best policy, the truth will set you free, reading is fundamental...

Leave a comment with your own shuffle list!

"You Wouldn't Like Me" - Tegan and Sara [buy album]
"I, I feel like I wouldn't like me if I met me
I, I feel like you wouldn't like me if you met me"


Pretty much how I've felt over the past few months. But hey, tides are a'changing, leaves are turning over, cheesy metaphors are running out... to further quote the song, "don't you worry, there's still time."

"Passing Afternoon" - Iron & Wine [buy album]
The lyrics are absolutely amazing. Love that last line, "a baby sleeps in all our bones, so scared to be alone."

"Holding Me Up" - The Dandy Warhols [buy album]
I believe this was played in the Season 3 episode of The O.C., "The Perfect Storm." Remember that one? Ryan gets a job on a boat? *sigh* I even miss the bad times.

"Solitaire" - The Notwist [buy album]
With the huge success of The Postal Service, I don't understand why this band hasn't blown up in the same way. Enter Silly Pipe Dreams, boom, explosion, sold-out stadiums, you're welcome. But seriously, if you like Postal Service, you'll love this band. They've been around for a while, I think this is their fifth album. Love this song, but my favorite track off the album is "Consequence," which you can listen to on their myspace. And if you like The Notwist, you'll love my friend from college, Boy In Static, whom I've mentioned before, and was actually discovered by The Notwist. Check them both out.

"Bye" - Elliott Smith [buy album]
One of my least favorite Elliott songs, only 'cause it's a short instrumental, off my third favorite Elliott album, Figure 8. My favorite album, on most days, is Either/Or, followed by XO. Favorite track off Figure 8 really should be "Somebody That I Used To Know," but I have this odd infatuation with "Everything Means Nothing To Me." Good Lord, these songs are depressing. Now I'm gonna go watch Requiem For A Dream and call it a Friday night.

"Stoned (live)" - Old 97's [buy album]
The Old 97's is one of the rare bands where I consistently prefer their live recordings over their studio tracks. And that's not to take away from their studio albums, I love them, but the energy and charisma of their live performances breathe new life into every song on this live album, Alive and Wired. Shout out to my friend with impeccable taste, Michelle, who convinced me to purchase this at Amoeba Music. She has promised to take me to an Old 97's concert someday. You are now all witnesses to this agreement. "A verbal contract is binding in the state of New York." Friends reference, nerd alert.

"I'm With You" - Avril Lavigne [buy album]
Damn it Avril, you just went and ruined what could've been my best game of iPod Roulette ever. Why'd you have to go and make things so complicated? Har har. Get it?? You see, what I did there was use a song lyric from- oh, you get it? Sorry I didn't hear you laughing, my mistake.

"Lo How A Rose E'er Blooming" - Sufjan Stevens [buy album]
With the amount of Christmas music on my iTunes, I'm surprised more holiday songs aren't popping. I'm also surprised I don't get beat up more often. Side note, I prefer Feist's cover of this song.

"Subterranean Homesick Alien" - Radiohead
Who here thinks The Bends is a better album than OK Computer? Granted they are both in the Top Ten Albums of All Time, and "No Surprises" is one of my favorite Radiohead songs ever, but I really think I'd put The Bends in either the #1 or 2 spot for Best Album Ever. Definitely my most played album since junior high.

"Beautiful Day (live)" - Kurt Nilsen [buy album]
Now you get a true glimpse of just how dorky I am. Kurt Nilsen was not only the Norwegian Idol winner, but also the winner of World Idol, beating out Idol winners from other countries, including Kelly Clarkson. This is the ripped version of him singing live on the show. The dude sounds just like Bono! He's also gap-toothed. The Lord giveth and taketh. Not a bad deal though. Hey God, wanna hook me up with some similar arrangement? Gapped teeth could help me whistle better.

1) Streetcorner Symphony - Rob Thomas
2) I Know Why - Sheryl Crow
3) Holy - Nichole Nordeman
4) Addicted - Kelly Clarkson
5) Glory Box - Portishead
6) Sweetest Sin - Jessica Simpson
7) Kryptonite - Three Doors Down
8) Senorita - Justin Timberlake
9) Look After You - The Fray
10) Call Me When You're Sober - Evanesence

My selections may not be quite as sophisticated, but I feel no need to defend it. Music is all about what makes you feel good, what you can relate to, and these do that for me. It's honest, and that's what the game is all about :D And, hey, I don't have to worry about you wanting to borrow my iPod when you're in town, right?? ;)

That being said, I'm always open to suggestions.

Every time I do something like this, I end up with a list of songs that either aren't embarrassing enough--or that no one has ever heard of. Or that I've never heard of.

(1) "Tell Me Is It Beautiful"--Chris and Maggie (a local band from Boulder, CO, released on a KBCO disk about 15 years ago)
(2) "Time for Me to Come Down"--Amy Rigby
(3) "Con Toda Palabra"--Lhasa De Sela (I'm not even sure what this is, but I gave it four stars)
(4) "I've Lived on a Dirt Road All My Life"--Caribou (I'm not sure what this is either, but I gave it only two stars)
(5) "Unspoken Words"--Showoff (Again, no idea. I liked it a lot, though.)
(6) "Trickle Down" (excerpt)--Brenda Weiler (I grabbed this off some record label site and was keeping it around as a reminder to get the entire song. Which I still haven't done, three years later.)
(7) "Carolinah"--Ox
(8) "Billy Austin"--Steve Earle & The Dukes (live)
(9) "Spasm"--Dave's True Story
(10) "Money for Nothing"--Dire Straits

Usually the shuffle lists have a few show tunes and something like Perry Como or Cookie Monster showing up. Or some lecture.

There is no album I have played more, and on a frequent basis, than Radiohead's The Bends. While OK Computer is a conceptual success, and is always listenable, I'd rather do The Bends. And I still wish they'd make another album similar.

Not a great mix, but not a bad one either. Most of the artists have better songs than the ones that popped up. Although, "Title and Registration" is one of my favorite Death Cab songs. The version in the mix is different than the one on Transatlanticism. While I like the album version better, this one is not bad. In case you haven't heard this version, I've linked it so you can give it a listen.

'Boy in Static', I have heard of. But 'The Notwist'! Ohmygoodness me! I absolutely adore the Postal Service so this has been a blessing to my ears! And you are right on so many levels, I have already told all my friends of this wonderfull-ness and if anybody asks: their claim to fame was you!

Also, I find the appearance of Avril completely endearing! You have no idea how many times I listened to that album during my 'stroppy teen year'. It is comforting that she features in a roulette of someone who's music taste I most definitely admire.

Well here is my random ten:

1. You Wanted It - MoZella

2. We're No Here - Mogwai

3. Everyone Gets A Star - Albert Hammond Jr.

4. So This Is Love - Cinderella (my secret weakness: Disney Music.)

5. The Crane Wife - The Decemberists

6. A Movie Script Ending - Death Cab For Cutie (Only one of my most cherished music videos EVER!)

7. Sound Is The Word - Shout Out Louds

8. We Will Become Silhouettes [Postal Service Cover] - The Shins

9. Sloop John B - The Beach Boys

10. Song for Sunshine - Belle & Sebastian

...and that's that! xx

Wow. You guys really like this game. I'll attempt to reply to every comment here...

Vanessa,
Hey, part of the fun of iPod Roulette is to poke fun at the songs one finds crappy. You just happen to have six really crappy songs. =) No need to get defensive.

Anon 11:40,
Definitely have most of those songs too.

Kathy,
Yeah, haven't really heard of most of those tunes. I believe "Unspoken Words" was on my break-up mix though, great song. Love Cookie Monster.

James R,
Couldn't agree with you more.

Abyss,
I hit the town with the guitarist of Billy Talent one year at CMJ. Haven't really heard much of them since. I have a Finch album too. Don't know why.

Jen,
Eclectic list, Hip Hop Horray is the best. Rob Thomas is not. =)

Michelle,
As always, you have the best taste ever. I even enjoy the JT track. And thanks for getting me into Built To Spill. I think I may change my mind on that Rufus Wainwright Does Judy Garland concert... let's go! I'll be the only straight guy there!

Lainer,
Great list. I was SO into STP for a while in high school. Still am I guess. Great track.

Lauren,
Wonderful list as well. Just go the Klaxons album recently, I dig it. And I love you for having a Guster song, and a great one at that.

Sunshine,
Cool list. I've always loved John Mayer, I've never loved Spice Girls. John Legend went to my college, our a cappella groups sang together at one point.

Laura,
You were doing so well till JC Chasez! Double cringe indeed! Haha. I probably have that track too though somewhere in the playlist.

Brandon,
How do you feel about Brand New's brand new album? Personally, I think it pales in comparison to their previous, love the song "Jesus Christ" though. Oh, and Lucinda Williams is the best. Thanks for the Death Cab link!! And I love Toad the Wet Sprocket, have all their albums.

Nicki,
That's so cool, I think I control bands' fame and all at will too!! So awesome that you like The Notwist. I love playing "Even Rats" on Guitar Hero. Nellie McKay is awesome.

Anon 9:03,
Lot of Rob Thomas in the comments. Makes me sad. =) Love the Jose Gonzalez track.

And Klaxons are pretty sweet!

Anon 9:21,
Checked out Evermore, I like that song "Light Surrounds You." Kind of reminds me of Jump, Little Chilren. Kings of Leon rule. Great list friend.

Lauren,
Awesome list. Funny you got two of the Bens.

Anon 1:03,
Have you heard the new Modest Mouse? Thoughts? Violent Femmes and Bowie? Awesome game of roulette.

Anon 1:17,
I'll make you a sandwich while I'm at it. Geez, what am I? A jukebox? At least insert some money or say please.

Anon 7:29,
Nice list. I've been digging Okkervil River lately.

Lauren,
Have you heard Klaxons' live cover of JT's "My Love"? Pretty cool.

Mona,
Sweet list. Love Broken Social Scene. Love waking up to "Sleeping In."

Annie,
Sweet list. Stereo MC's took me back. Glad you like The Bends better, kindred spirit.

Anon 1:19,
Sweet list, love Cold War Kids.

Anon 12:57,
I don't know what to think about Jason Mraz. I absolutely hate his albums, but his live performances are pretty great.

Taylor,
Cool list. I seem to get AC/DC often too.

Daniel,
Funny how so many of us have OC songs pop up.

Swedegirl,
Cool list. I love that Hives track. I've never been to Sweden.

Krissi,
Never heard that "I'm Horny" song, but I will now have to check it out on the title alone.

Laura,
Guster, yes!

Dewy Petals,
How was Science Of Sleep? It's in my Netflix queue.

Anon 12:12,
Toxic is one of the few Britney songs I will say that I not only enjoy, but love.

Sarah,
Cool list. You might be the only person I know with The Jungle Book score. Love Life of Brian.

Lindsay Kaye,
I absolutely love Bright Eyes. So pissed I missed him last week in LA. But Goo Goo Dolls? Ouch. =) We shall agree to disagree.

Kavine,
Glad you like The Notwist! They are wonderful. And thanks for finding the Avril endearing. Love the Hammond Jr album. And that Shins cover of Postal Service is splendid.

Dewy Petals,
Boy they sure do. I spend an hour putting together a post about my buddies in The Whitest Kids, beggint people to check them out and I get 3 comments. Spend 2 minutes on the iTunes shuffle list and we get 50 comments. I'm just gonna do this everyday from now on.

Krissie,
No need to be ashamed of Blackstreet! I freaking love that song. Takes me waaay back. Love seeing Guster on there!! But DMB? For shame.

Anon 3:01,
I have so many a cappella songs on my playlist too, glad you appreciate a cappella!

Anon 6:28,
Nice list. Side note, I believe the correct title for that STP song is "Creep."

Anon 6:37,
Love that you guys are discussing back and forth. Wish that would happen more in the comments!

Brad,
Cool list. I kind of hate She Wants Revenge though. They seem to be trying waaay too hard. Love Jenny Lewis as you can probably tell.

Anon 8:45,
Very eclectic. Man Savage Garden. Junior High. Memories.

Becks,
Interesting indeed. Don't have half of those songs.

Anon 11:35,
Did Bright Eyes cover the Super Furry Animals track? I've never heard it.

Nika,
Haven't seen anyone with Rasputina in a while! Awesome.

Laura,
Awesome list.

Maria,
Two Gwen Stefani songs? That shit is bananas, BA-NA-NAS. =)

Anon 7:59,
Peter Bjorn and John are awesome. Cool to see Plain White T's on there.

Kimberley,
Awesome list.

Anon 9:05,
Nice. Queen rules.
