...they say jump / you say "how high?"

I've been listening to my ipod on shuffle this afternoon:



The Streets - let's push things forwards

David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust

Tom Petty - Runnin' Down a Dream

James - laid

R.E.M. - Daysleeper

Embrace - ashes

White Stripes - I just don't know what to do with myself

The Beatles - Because

Johnny Cash - Spiritual

Rage Against The Machine - Take the Power Back

Belle & Sebastian - Judy & the Dream of Horses

Beastie Boys - Body Movin'

Sheryl Crowe - Hard to Make a Stand (hmm)

The Who - Let's See Action

Daft Punk - Something About Us

Billy Joel - Miami 2017 (See the Lights Go Out on Broadway)

Billy Bragg - The Man In the Iron Mask

Hurricane #1 - Only The Strongest Will Survive

Inspiral Carpets - Find Out Why

Ian Dury & The Blockheads - There Ain't Half Been Some Clever Bastards

Pet Shop Boys - What Have I Done to Deserve This?



Not bad - in fact downright inspiring. Out of 3455 tracks, that's not bad.



I quite like the musical roulette of knowing that a duff album track or one of the CDs that C. ripped could only be minutes away (livin' the vida loca would put a downer on my day and no mistake). On the other hand, I could be only one song away from a Neil Young classic.

Speaking of Rage Against The Machine, I read something really funny the other day saying how Rage were...er... raging in the mid-90s when US politics was especially bland. Now we have some real issues to chew over, RATM are no more (I can just see then getting stuck into Dubbya, can't you?)



Rage Against the Machine - where are you in our darkest hour?
