This Is Just A Test

I gave your 15 Shuffle game a whirl on my iTunes and here’s what I came up with. I have no idea what it says about me or my musical inclinations.

1. Ramones – She’s the One – not the Springsteen song, but you probably know that

2. Sea Oleena – Island Cottage – OK, the rules said “NO editing/cheating.” I have no recollection of downloading the whole album this song comes from!

3. Wrecking Ball – Bruce Springsteen – bootleg of the 4/24/2012 concert at HP Pavilion I attended

4. Living Colour – Information Overload – from 1990’s Time’s Up

5. Walker Brothers – Land of 1,000 Dances – goofy cover of soul classic

6. Swervedriver – Sunset – from shoegaze group’s 1st album, Raise

7. George Harrison – Run So Far – from his underrated final album, Brainwashed

8. Eddie Hinton – Super Lover – anything by this soul master is pretty cool

9. Bad Brains — Sailin’ On – from a MOJO mag sampler called I Love NY Punk

10. Mick Jagger – Brand New Set Of Rules – boring song from 2001’s Goddess in the Doorway

11. Fiona Apple – A Mistake – another spooky Apple song from 1999’s When a Pawn…

12. Grand Funk – Closer to Home/I’m Your Captain – when Grand Funk was popular in the 70s it was totally uncool to like them (because the critics hated them). But with my years of perspective I’m willing to stick my neck out and defend this as pretty good blues rock.

13. Emmylou Harris – J’ai Fait Tout – from the great Red Dirt Girl

14. Rachel Unthank & The Winterset – Sexy Sadie – nice cover of The Beatles’ classic

15. The Sparkletones – Boys Do Cry – deep cut from the rockabilly band most well know for the great “Black Slacks”
