MP3 Player Shuffle-a-gogo

10 songs on shuffle with real time commentary....

1 the GODFATHERS - Sticks and Stones - a helluva tune from Hit By Hit, an album that kicked my ass when I first heard it.
2 TRAFFIC - Feelin' Alright - a long time favorite from a band I didn't realize how much I liked until I picked up the double disc hits collection 7 or 8 years ago.
3 PETE TOWNSHEND - Let My Love Open the Door - This song came out right at about the time I was really starting pay close attention to music and I used to just wait for it to come on the radio.
4 KRAFWERK - Computer World 2 - Hearing this just makes me want to listen to all of Computer World
5 SQUEEZE - Another Nail in My Heart - 45's and Under is, for my money, one of the most perfect greatest hits album ever. nd yet, for some reason, I hardly ever play anything else by Squeeze.
6 FELT - Rain of Crystal Spires - Finally one I had to look at the screen to see what the hell it was. At first I thought it might be Tom Verlaine. This is from the Creation Records Soup boxset, which whenever anything from it comes up on shuffle I have to look to see what it is, but I'm always pleasantly surprised. Great jangley guitars and organ. Now I'm thinking I need to buy a Felt album or two.
7 PLACEBO - Black Eyed - I don't think that Placebo have gotten their due - they have a killer catalog and are always trying new things while not deviating from what made them so great in the first place.
8 THIN LIZZY - Don't Believe a Word - One of those songs that don't ring a bell for me by the title, but the second that guitar comes in I remember what a great song it is.
9 NEKO CASE - Lions Jaws - This isn't one of my faves from Fox Confessor, but it's still a great song. At first, when this came up on shuffle, I was a bit bummed becasue it wrecked the flow of some great bouncy melodic songs. But once her voice kicked in I just didn't care.
10 bis - Sale or Return - Outside of the Beasties, this is probably my favorite record to come out on Grand Royal. Too bad after two albums they lost all sense of fun and became incredibly bland.
