Today's Top Ten

I think I am about to steal something from Joel. Danny told me once that Joel used to turn on his MP3 player on Friday morning and list on his website the first ten songs that came on. However, I checked Joel's website and found no evidence of this. So this is either Joel or Dan's idea.

Here are my ten songs for today. (Oh, God. Please don't let them all be The Ray Conniff Singers and Debbie Gibson.)

1. Ozzy Osbourne - Iron Man
2. Lost In The Supermarket - The Clash
3. Talk About The Passion - R.E.M.
4. Scotch and Chocolate - Nickel Creek
5. Misguided Angel - Cowboy Junkies
6. Prison Food - Ben Folds
7. What You Need - INXS
8. Breakout - Foo Fighters
9. Save A Prayer - Duran Duran
10. Imagination - Harry Connick, Jr.

Wow! I'm like, cool, or something! Of course, they're all songs I picked, so I guess I'm not one to judge. Also, just give it time. I'm sure one day that I do this, all the songs will be tragically uncool.

I haven't commented for a long time. I've kinda been lost in the supermarket too. Just another voice in support of your keeping the site.

...and I gotta second the motion that you've got a well rounded selection of cool there. Generally tragic things result from putting all my mp3's into random play (and I'm talking Jethro Tull tragic).

Hi Stephanie. Just checking in to tell you that I'm still reading. I hope that you keep blogging and that it brings you some satisfaction.

I'm going to try my best.

And welcome back, Pete! Jethro Tull? Yikes.

The funny thing is I can't remember actually downloading any 'Tull' -- perhaps it's similar to the phenomenon that Douglas Adams commmented on (in one of the later Hitchiker books?) that any cassette tape left sliding around under the seat of your car for enough time will, when you finally rummage it out, have mysteriously transmuted into "The Best of Queen".

Jay actually does this, and I'm guessing that's where Dan got it from. I probably would have done it, but I didn't have an mp3 player. Oddly enough, however, I bought an iPod about a week ago. So yeah.

Oh, and good on you for The Clash. Gotta love The Clash.
