Meme City

I got tagged on Facebook wtih a "Random 25" meme where you hit shuffle on your MP3 player and report the first 25 songs that play. Well, I haven't updated my MP3 player (my G1 phone) in quite some time, so I figure I'll just use my computer collection. I don't really want to report the first 25 that show up on, though, because there are a lot of samplers and one time downloads in there that I wouldn't count for real. So I generated a random playlist from the nearly 10,000 tracks on my computer and picked the first 25 that I would consider putting on my player . Here's the list:

  1. Lullaby - The Cure
  2. Dancing in the Dark - Bruce Springsteen
  3. My Shepard - The New Pornographers
  4. Hey St. Peter - Flash and the Pan
  5. Roy Rogers - Elton John
  6. King of Pain - The Police
  7. How Fortunate the Man with None - Dead Can Dance
  8. Wham - Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble
  9. South Bound Suarez - Led Zepplin
  10. Suspicious Minds - Fine Young Cannibals
  11. Lost Highway - Johnny Horton
  12. Shoot To Thrill - AC/DC
  13. The Id Parade - Danielle Dax
  14. Tin Drum - Big Pig
  15. Love Is A Sign - The Go-Betweens
  16. All My Steaps - The Black Heart Procession
  17. A Dream within a Dream - The Alan Parsons Project
  18. Penny Lane - The Beatles
  19. Paper Planes - M.I.A.
  20. Rudi Can't Fail - The Clash
  21. Heart of Stone - The Raveonettes
  22. Come Together - Aerosmith
  23. Mexican Radio - Wall of Voodoo
  24. I'm Mandy Fly Me - 10cc
  25. All Come Down - Steve Mason

It's not a bad sampling, although it is very light on any real new releases besides the Steve Mason & The New Pornographers songs. Lots of older songs, plenty of 80s New Wave and some rock classics. Not too embarassing!

I still really enjoy that first Flash And The Pan album. Tracks from that will come on from time-to-time and someone will ask "who's that?" -- and I'll be like -- yeah, it's 30 years old...
