Friday Random 10 – deep track edition

Books, Music, Art, Movies

My iPod dug pretty deep into the archives today.

1. Black Celebration by Depeche Mode. I think the last time I heard this song was 20 years ago when I lived in New York. It reminds me of my best friend at the time, Jeme. She loved this song. I didn’t know it was on my iPod.

2. Skinny Little Bitch by Hole. Free download from a couple of years ago. Not a bad song. I just can’t stand Courtney Love so the song irritates me slightly.

god she is so insane.

3. 24 hour Party People by Happy Mondays. This song sort of sucks. I kind of like Happy Mondays, too. Again, I have no idea why this is on my iPod…

4. Hateful. The Clash. Yes! Always love hearing The Clash. Great song, too!!

5. Leper Messiah. Metallica. I have very eclectic taste in music. ( I LOVE Metallica.)

6. I’m Never Bored. The Walkmen. The lead singer of this band has a terribly whiny voice. It makes me want to punch him in the face.

7. The Only Daddy That Will Walk The Line. Willie Nelson. By the time I finished typing this the song was over.
I can’t find the recording that I listen to on my iPod on Youtube. The one I have is from the album, “Willie and Family Live.” Here’s a different one:

8. Roadblock. Rancid. Yep. Eclectic. That’s me.

9. Redundant. Green Day. I don’t like these guys as much as I used to.

10. The Devil Went Down To Georgia. Oh goodness. This song makes me giggle. A devil in a fiddle duel. Ha!

Friday random ten

Books, Music, Art, Movies

A very long time ago I used to do this thing called Friday Random 10. It was actually a blog meme and it was fun. To join in the fun, simply put your iPod on shuffle and blog the first ten songs played.

I actually had forgotten about it  until recently as I was going through all of my old blog posts. I kind of missed it! I’m sure the process is only edifying to myself but that’s o.k. I think I’ve come to the realization that I blog for myself. That others read my blog is  delicious icing on the cake.

So anyway, I bring you, again, today’s Friday Random 10. With YouTube videos so you can listen too!

1. Way out by Yeah Yeah Yeahs
LOVE this song and this band. Love to sing along with their music. Karen O’s voice is the best.

2. Goodbye Stranger by Supertramp. This song makes me remember my younger, carefree days, playing with my neighborhood friends at the playground.

3. Pictures of Lilly by the Who. Not one of my favorite Who songs.

4. Live wire Beastie Boys. I have a weird Beastie Boys story I should share sometime.

5. In my head by Queens of The Stone Age. God I love this song. I’d forgotten about it.

6. Lion’s Jaws by Neko Case. I discovered Neko Case in the dead of Winter in Spokane a few years ago. I bought all of her albums and played them obsessively. So now when I hear her music it reminds me of winter and , thus, sadness.

7. The Green Lady by Big Audio Dynamite. This song reminds me of having fun in NYC and, because I loved and listened to this album all the time, when I first moved to California.

8. Buffalo Soldier by Bob Marley. I only have one Marley Album but a song from this album never fails to play during shuffle. My iPod loves Bob Marley. And so do I.

9. Let the Good Times Roll by the Cars. Fuck. Yeah.

10. I bleed, by Pixies. I do. For reals.
