iPod Roulette

I'm still sort of on a blogging hiatus, so in the meantime, let's play our favorite game. Just like last time, hit shuffle on your iPod or iTunes and jot down the first ten songs in the comments! Here we go...

"Paper Doll" - Rosie Thomas [buy album]
Not a song you'd want to kick off a party with, but it is a great way to kick off those Saturday nights alone with your ex's picture by your side. And a 40 of Olde English Malt Liquor in one hand. While The Lake House blares in the background. Not that I do that on Saturday nights. Wednesdays sometimes, but not Saturday.

"The Power Of Love" - Huey Lewis & The News [buy album]
Oh, hells yes. Remember the music video? Ah, simpler times, when all I wanted out of life was a Hoverboard. Technology, why haven't you made this a reality yet? It's the 21st century for heaven's sake, we should be able to make a skateboard hover. It would make everyone incredibly happy, probably solving all tensions in the Middle East, so let's get our best minds on this.

One of my favorite scenes in Knocked Up is when Paul Rudd and Seth Rogan reference Back to the Future: "Where we're going, we don't need roads."

"From Blown Speakers" - The New Pornographers [buy album]
I think their last two albums are absolute perfection, thus I am really looking forward to Challengers, which "drops" August 11th. Check out one of the new songs, "My Rights Versus Yours", on their myspace.

"Pet Rock" - Teenage Fanclub [buy album]
I have to give credit to my writing partner for introducing me to this band last year. I somehow never game them a listen in the 90's. So, if you are like me from a year ago, then purchase Bandwagonesque right now, and you can in turn credit me on your blogs for bettering your life.

"That's When I'll Stop Loving U" - *NSYNC [buy album]
I sometimes DJ 8th grade formals? I have no good excuse for this. I'm sorry, I know I've disappointed you all.

"Y Control (Faint Remix)" - Yeah Yeah Yeahs [buy album]
A great remix to a great song.

"Stagger Lee" - Lloyd Price [buy album]
I forgot I had this song. Just read up on the history behind it on good ole Wikipedia. Interesting.

"You're A Wolf" - Sea Wolf [buy album]
This song is one of my favorites this year. The word "wolf" seems to be all the rage in indie-land lately. Wolf Parade, Wolfmother, Wolf Eyes... just remember guys, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart did it first.

*EDIT: Credit to Michelle Rudolph for sending me this song. Happy now, Michelle?

"Give Judy My Notice" - Ben Folds [buy album]
Ben Folds really knows how to write great break-up songs. I hope he never finds true love just so he continues to write these wonderfully depressing tunes. Just kidding, I don't mean that. True love doesn't exist.

"Crush" - Gavin DeGraw [buy album]
Another guilty pleasure, at least you know I'm not cheating. Seriously, if you need me to DJ a middle school dance, holler.

I'm curious to hear your thoughts on Sopranos. Everyone else is sounding off on it...I kind of figured you would've had something already.
Pissed or not pissed...that is the question.

Sweet! I know you always claim these are lazy-blogger posts, but I get a huge kick out of them:
1. FNT – Semisonic. From the 10 Things I Hate About You Soundtrack. Awesome movie, awesome soundtrack
2. Hunter – Dido. Man, did I love this album. And in a nice segue from the previous track, I bought No Angel because I loved Thank You after hearing it on the Sliding Doors soundtrack
3. Arkansas/How Blest We Are – Big River. One of my top 3 favorite shows of all time. Such a silly song and then it transitions into an amazing gospel requiem.
4. Brave New World (live) – Styx. Eh, I caught the Arch Allies tour at Six Flags NJ in ’02 and Styx gets points deducted for no Dennis DeYoung, cheese-fest that he is.
5. Only Living Boy in New York – Simon and Garfunkel. Indeed, while I do own this song on an S&G album, the track playing is the one from the Garden State soundtrack. I sense a trend.
6. Terrible Vision – Rhett Miller. You can never go wrong with Rhett Miller. On a side note, after catching him in concert solo and backed by the Believers, I’m so psyched to finally be seeing the Old 97’s play together on this summer’s tour!
7. Fun, Fun, Fun – Beach Boys. Mislabeled Little Deuce Coupe. Weird. Also, I am still scarred from Austin’s take on this in Grease: You’re the One That I Want.
8. Me vs. Maradona vs. Elvis – Brand New. This song was totally in my dream last night. Freaky.
9. Happy New Year – Camera Obscura. One of my all time fav tracks obtained from SPD. Still haven’t gotten around to purchasing the album though. I know, I’m lame.
10. My Valentine – Rhett Miller. Aw…hee. Well played, iTunes.


Also - so true about the Wolf thing. Sea Wolf is great (and so cute!), and I also enjoy Patrick Wolf and Peter & the Wolf (esp. Safe Travels)

BTW, I know I don't know you, but I saw a movie a couple weeks ago that you might like. It's called "Once," and it's an Irish indie about music. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it.

1. Stars-Celebration Guns
One of those songs I know I *should* love but I prefer their fluffier stuff
2. Nick Cave's Cover of Homeless
One of the cooler tracks from the I am Sam CD
3.Patrick Park- Life is a Song
Perfect theme for the lazy summer before senior year of college I'm having
4.Eddie Vedder's You've Got to Hide Your Love Away
I am Sam shows up again, I absolutley love this one
5. Pete Yorn- EZ
the Ipod seems to be encouraging my summer of sloth
6.TV on the Radio- Dirtywhirl
love them, love this song
7.Neutral Milk Hotel-In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
I believe this one was courtesy of you, thanks
8.Decemberists- We Both Go Down Together
eh...
9. Running on Sunshine- Jesus Jackson
I freakin adore this song, I'm going to have to pause for a brief dance party before number 10
10. Yo-Yo Ma- Prelude to the Bach G major
crap. After appearing fairly normal for 9 whole songs i reveal myself as the geek that I am

Here goes nothing:

1. The Watson Twins--"Shoot the Lights Out"
2. Patsy Cline--"I Fall to Pieces"
3. Willy Mason--"21st Century Boy"
4. The BoDeans (live)--"Feed the Fire"
5. Ryan Adams--"No Disguise"
6. The Foundry Field Recordings--"Battle Brigades"
7. Cowboy Junkies--"I Did It All for You"
8. Charlemagne--"Pink and Silver"
9. Lewis & Clarke--Before It Breaks You"
10. Kate Rusby--"Playing of Ball"

Pretty heavily into the folk and alt-country there, although I'm not sure I could identify who Charlemagne was if they slapped me in the face and dropped a CD on my head. I did rate it four stars back in 2005.

I've got some better stuff (read: more diverse, that I can actually identify) coming up in the five songs just after this--Crooked Fingers, The Manhattan Transfer and the Del McCoury Band.

I look forward to this. lol Let's see how it goes this time.

1. "She Hates Me" - Puddle of Mudd
I actually love this song. =/ lol It just has a great sound to it - the words are a kick too. ;)

2. "Who Are You" - The Who
Let's move on from this song. It's not remotely a favorite.

3. "I Don't Know" - Starsailor
Well, we're diversifying. Starsailor is definitely worth checking out - they're unique and lyrically brilliant. Past couple of albums have been spectacular.

4. "Stranglehold" - Ted Nugent
Erm...=/

5. "Running With The Devil" - Van Halen
Of course, from Devils games. I feel no shame in saying I turn into a psychotic singing fool when this comes on.

6. "Rescue" - Lucinda Williams
Dipping into the Brothers & Sisters soundtrack a bit - very downtempo song...casual day's listening.

7. "My Kind of Town" - Frank Sinatra
<3 Frankie.

8. "Nobody's Off The Hook" - Rufus Wainwright
Off his brilliant new album, Release the Stars, which everyone should be required to listen to. It's amazing.

9. "Amoreena" - Elton John
Oh, Elton. =]

10. "Lowell, MA" - Death Cab for Cutie
Death Cab...a must love. =]

Not so embarrassing this time. I'm due for next time.

I haven't tried this in a while so let's see if I can avoid embarrassment. Here we go:

1. Machinehead - Bush

Truthfully just really feels good to listen to while speeding down the road.

2. Sometimes - James

Yes, I love Britpop and James is wonderful.

3. Peter Cottontail - Gene Autry

I don't really know what to say about that, let's move on.

4. Your Love Is Like Vegas - The Thrills

I absolutely adore The Thrills and cannot wait for a new album.

5. Thunderstruck - AC/DC

Off of the live album, but truthfully I have most of the entire AC/DC albums because I grew up with a brother obsessed with them and it rubbed off on me, plus...They ROCK.

6. Einstein on the Beach - Counting Crows

So what I grew up in the 90's and like everyone else I listened to Counting Crows.

7. High - Stabbing Westward

I really liked industrial goth for a while but I don't really like this album or this song.

8. Friday, I'm In Love - Dryden Mitchell

This is off the 50 First Dates soundtrack, but just so we're straight I own the Cure version as well and prefer it.

9. Gonna Fly Now - Bill Conti

Ah Rocky, does anything really make you want to work out more?

10. I'm Like a Bird - Nelly Furtado

This is the only song I have of hers and I got it one day when it wouldn't leave my head. I kinda preferred this version of Nelly Furtado to the current skankified version.

Well, that was eclectic and just really really weird. Oh well, love the blog and keep writing when you have time.

I like this game.. Interesting collection by everyone. I'm afraid I'm not quite as adventurous in my music

1.Pinched, Chop Chop - I think I stole this from my neighbor.. Pretty good though
2. Heaven, Los Lonely Boys - I do have a liking to some bad singles what can I say?
3.Proper Nice-Joss Stone- LOVED Soul Sessions, so I committed to checking out her other albums, but these follow up attempts at making it big arent really going anywhere for me.
4.Get Older, Matthew Sweet - Ahh.. early High School.. but his pop sound is a little invigorating
5.Daniel, Elton John- classic
6.I Almost Forgot, Matthew Sweet-one of the best songs on this album
7.Happy Now?, No Doubt- cant beat Tragic Kingdom to get over that puberty angst
8.Little Lies, Fleetwood Mac-Not thier best song..but this Greatest Hits album is a must have
9.Dancing with Myself-NouvelleVague: Thanks to the Silly Pipe Dreams.. and a GREAT cover
10.Fade Into You, Mazzy Star - Complete 90's collection.. gotta love it.

Okay, okay, you've enticed me to play! (And apologies for being one of those people who never comment, for no good reason, even thought I love the blog...sorry)

1. No Tomorrow, Orson - Love, love love this song right now. Whenever it comes up, I have to play it at least 3 times in a row before I can move on. I'm sure I'll burn myself out on it soon...

2. Gettin Jiggy Wit It, Will Smith -
On your mark ready set lets go
Dance floor pro I know you know
I go psycho when my new joint hit
Just cant sit
Gotta get jiggy wit it
Ooh thats it...

3. Death and Destruction, Weezer - Hmm, I have this album, I've never really listened to it much

4. Medley: Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In, Forrest Gump Soundtrack - classic soundtrack

5. Lazy Gun, Jet - eh...

6. Best of Friends, The Fox and the Hound - This is perhaps the most melancholy of all Disney movies...

7. Turn Me On, Norah Jones - Great voice (and it always helps me get to sleep)

8. Magic in the Air, Badly Drawn Boy - I saw him in concert a couple weeks ago, and he closed the show with "Don't Stop Believin'" Pretty much the best thing ever.

9. Doll, Foo Fighters - Can't really go wrong with Foo Fighters

10. No More Flowers, Tom Wehrle - I think I actually found this guy through one of those annoying myspace messages, turns out he's pretty decent

Ooooh, I want to play! This is totally embarrassing!
1) “Dream a Little Dream of Me” by Dean Martin. A slow start, this one’s an oldie but a classic.
2) “Hernando’s Hideaway” from The Pajama Game musical. This particular recording was a classical version of the tango. Um, yeah.
3) “Shameless” by Billy Joel. OK, at least this isn’t originally from a musical. Though, technically it was featured in his “Movin’ Out” show on Broadway… I am a total geek.
4) “When I Look to the Sky” by Train.
5) “Unwell” by Matchbox 20.
6) “Far Away” by Nickelback.
7) “Angel” by Shaggy. What a silly use of an old melody!
8) “Everything Changes” by Staind. At this point, I’m wondering if my husband accidentally downloaded all his favorite stuff to my ipod by mistake.
9) “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz. While he’s best known for “The Remedy” this has to be my favorite Mraz track. A mellow, unplugged tune.
10) “Tears in Heaven” by Eric Clapton. Now that’s a good song.

2. Spoke in Tongues - Chantal Kreviazuk
(New album! Woo!)

3. Adelaide - Old 97s
(Ah, a classic.)

4. Burning Up - Ashlee Simpson

Alright...I'll play.

1. Members Of the Band - The Roots
(Off the J. Period mixtape...not what I would call my favorite Roots song, but not a bad way to kick off this list)

2. (The) Happy Song - Box Tops
(I loves me some Alex Chilton)

3. Rubberneckin' - Elvis Presley
(From the Suspicious Minds sessions...not the uber-popular remix)

4. I Know We Could Be So Happy - Jeff Buckley
(Not his best, even on this collection, but still a pretty good song)

5. Altar Boy - Tom Waits
(From Orphans...one of the best box sets in recent memory)

6. Brain Damage - Pink Floyd
(Holy crap...how I loved this song in high school. I can't tell you how hard I tried to laugh like "the lunatic". Still a good song.)

7. Cowboy - Jon Spencer Blues Explosion
(I would've felt better if it was "Blues X Man", but this is still a pretty good song)

8. How Do You Keep Love Alive? - Ryan Adams
(As much as I'd love to hate this guy, I just can't...and it's because of songs like this. In my humble opinion, this is one of his best songs.)

9. Gimme Stitches - Foo Fighters
(For about 2 weeks, this was my favorite Foo Fighters album. It still holds up, even after all these years. Not counting the second disc from "In Your Honor", I would classify this album as their mellow album. Good song.)

10. The Winning Team - Patton Oswalt
(One of the better stand-up albums in recent memory. Not as good as Mitch Hedberg's stuff, but still really funny, and surprisingly re-listenable.)

Whew! Made it through ten songs without a single bad track coming up. That's pretty good!

2. Hip Hop Soldier - Sir Mix-A-Lot
(This is pre-Baby Got Back and yes, I am old enough to not only know that he had something before BGB, but actually was all offended for Mix when some girl group (e.g., Pussycat Dolls) appropriated the hook from his "Swass." It's "Don't you wish your boyfriend was Swass like me" dammit. ;)

3. Hobo Blues - Ray LaMontagne
(not my favorite track)

4. My Blue Tears - Dolly Parton
(Don't laugh! I Love Dolly's bluegrass cds. Her voice is still great, unlike many older artists who should just learn to not sing as their voices atrophy with age.)

8. Rebellion (Lies) - Arcade Fire

First off, the word verification was "aheeeps," which sounds like a Black_eyed Peas song, so we're off to a good start. Here we go:

1. "So Long" -- Guster. Not my fav by them, but cute.

2. "Desert" -- Trespassers William. Oh, God. Watch this list be nothing but alt/mellow.

3. "Satellite" -- Dave Matthews Band. How EMBARRASSING. This is like old man music.

4. "Knowing Me, Knowing You" - Evan Dando. More obscure cover of ABBA, which always roolz.

5. "Dial-a-Cliche" - Morrissey. Just saw him at the Hollywood Bowl. The man behind me summed it up best: "I'm not gay, but I would totally do Morrissey!"

6. "sky starts falling" - Doves. This album was a let-down, but I digs on this song.

7. "Ode To My Family" - The Cranberries. Good LORD. Another old man track. I can remember when Bill Clinton got elected, kids!

8. "You Don't Know Anything" - Ivy. I had a little Ivy phase, but I've kind of gone off them. Don't know why; this song kinda kicks.

9. "The Two Sides of Monsieur Valentine" - Spoon. Now we're talking. One my favorites of theirs. And the new album? Fookin rawks.

10. "This Land is Mine" - Dido. And we go out on a slice of mild Gouda. It's okay, I guess. I just wish I looked cooler.
