Friday Shuffle, anyone? You know the deal.
Is it ten songs or seven? Whatever I'm doing ten.

Paris Philharmonic - Galop Infernal, aka The Can Can.- for spontaneous sidewalk dance parties of one.

Rolling Stones - She's A Rainbow - enough time has pasted from the Apple ads that I can enjoy this song again. I hosted a burlesque show based on color theory that opened to this song.

The Ronettes- Be My Baby - It is my life's ambition to record an album of growly, angry Waitsian covers of girl group classics.

Stone Temple Pilots - Art School Girl - Oh hey also for the color theory show. It's okay.

David Bowie - White Light White Heat - Bowie At The Beeb has most of my preferred recordings of Bowie songs, actually.

Future Bible Heroes - I'm A Vampire - oh man synthy 80s pop-y talk sings song about how awesome it is to be a vampire! How has it not been on True Blood yet?

Rasputina- Translyvian Concubines - Oh hey there High School, what's up? I watched a lot of Buffy. A. lot. Of. Buffy.

Twisted Sister - We're Not Gonna Take It - you need to break up seven hours of driving with SOMETHING.

Eric Sierra - Five Millenia Later - off the Fifth element soundtrack, I think I used this for the opening reveal of the Sci Fi show but, whatever. First soundtrack I ever bought!

The Original Memphis Fice - Somebody Stole My Gal - why yes, yes I can jitterbug.

1. (MF) Doom - Angelz (2010)
2. El-P - Squeegee Man Shooting (2002)
3. Spencer Wiggins - The Power of a Woman (1967) [So goddamn good if you're in a soul mood]
4. Black Flag - Southern Rise (1985) [From their instrumental album "The Process of Weeding Out", which some folks hate. I'm fairly okay with it]
5. Tom Waits - Midnight Lullaby (1973) [From Tom's debut album, "Closing Time". Much more I could say about my personal experience with this album, but I'm not gonna go there right now]
6. X - Soul Kitchen (1980) [Doors cover. I've never been much of a Doors fan, but I'll give Manzarek props for helping X out. Looks like I'm finally gonna get to see X live in November. Very excited.]
7. Illogic - I Wish He Would Make Me (2004) [Dude's heavy. Very heavy. But solid.]
8. Crooked Fingers - Devil's Train (2001) [Couldn't find the album version on YT, so here's a decent live version. Bachmann slays me. I love him]
9. Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Caroline (2007) [Been a long time since I've seen them live. Would love to get another chance.]
10. Mind Spiders - Going Away Tonight (2011) [Decent indie-garage-ish Austin band]

Les Paul and Mary Ford - Wabash Blues - Amazing the sound and overdub quality that long ago-well they invented it.

Lucinda Williams - I Lost It - Lucinda has jumped the shark for me, as far as new material, but I still love her old stuff.

Josh Ritter - Wings - I have a bunch of Josh Ritter on my iPod due to a friend, but I really am not familiar with him yet.

Indigo Girls - Strange Fire - I have very little IG, but I like this one.

Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris - Falling Down - From The Western Wall, Tucson Sessions - very underrated album.

Tegan and Sara - Living Room - Tegan wrote a thing on Dan Savage's latest column!

Donovan - The River Song - from Hurdy Gurdy Man, an album that I have always loved.

Cry Cry Cry - Shades of Grey - Great flatpicking on the go-out from this song.

The Decemberists - Sleepless - From an HIV charity compilation album.

Creedence Clearwater Rivival - Effigy - The only Creedence track I own but I love this one.

I'm not overly familiar with Ritter and his studio stuff has never grabbed me, but I've listened to this live show that NPR posted several years back a few times and it's really damn good.

Creedence Clearwater Rivival - Effigy - The only Creedence track I own but I love this one.

For whatever reason, I'm shocked that I have more CCR than you do, danf. And I only have one album (but it is Willy and the Poor Boys, which Effigy came from)

Well there are a lot of artists that I had TONS of back in the LP days, but have very little interest in now. Jackson Browne, Dan Fogelberg (rip), Jefferson Airplane, Joni Mitchell, Seals and Crofts, and others. CCR fits in that category.

Allison Moorer - Revelator - My favorite Gillian Welch song in a nice cover version

R.E.M. - It Happened Today - Their last album has been floating around on shuffle on my phone for a year and I still don't think that I can name a single song off of it.

Steve Earle - Billy and Bonny - I like anything from the extended Earle Family (Moorer is his current wife)

Cracker - Sweet Potato

Death Cab for Cutie - St. Peter's Cathedral

Wilco - Ashes of American Flags - Easily one of their best songs although I've probably heard everything off of YHF way too much.

She & Him - If You Can't Sleep - Don't judge me.

The Decemberists - O Valencia

Tune-Yards - Es-so - Still can't decide if I like them (her) or not.

John Mellencamp - The West End - From his sadly ignored recent album. Really good but depressing stuff.

mmmkay... I've mentioned before that I don't do shuffles (my brief past as a radio DJ resulted in an obsession with PROGRAMMING the music).

Today, Lifehacker grabbed me by the audio with an article on Earworms (one of my never-fulfilled web projects is Earworm-related) and they set up an open Spotify playlist of Earworms to which I HAD to contribute some...

Escape (The Pina Colada Song) - Rupert Holmes
F You - Cee Lo Green (I used the bowdlerized version)
Gilligan's Island theme
Good Vibrations - The Beach Boys
I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing (the Coke jingle)
It's the End of the World As We Know It - REM
Reeling in the Years - Steely Dan
'Trololo' - Eduard Khil (Spotify also has remixes)
Where Everybody Knows Your Name (Theme from Cheers)
Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who

many others somebody just beat me to...
1999, Billie Jean, I'm a Believer, Rocket Man, Walkin' on Sunshine, What I Like About You, Blue (Da Ba Dee), Tubthumping, We Will Rock You, Africa, 867-5309 (Jenny), It's a Small World (from Disneyland), Monty Python's Always Look on the Bright Side of Life [I have so much respect for whoever added that one], Safety Dance, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme, Smurfs theme, American Pie, Karma Chameleon, The Girl from Ipanema, Spanish Flea (Tijuana Brass/Dating Game), Never Gonna Give You Up (The Rick Roll) and Somebody That I Used to Know (The Gotye Roll)

And the shuffle lists here give me a few more candidates...
So much pain, yet so much fun.
[After the MeFi post about Prog Rock, I was tempted to toss in ELP's Karn Evil 9 (Welcome back my friends...) but even I couldn't be that cruel...]

I guess I am grateful to this thread for making me notice that I did not correctly move my iTunes library to a wireless drive. Maybe I can shuffle later, after the kinks are worked out . . .

Every iTunes library should have the Kinks.
