I love shuffle

I have a fake Ipod and it is the greatest toy ever. I haven't taken any time to create playlists or organize my music--I just grabbed a handful of CDs and transferred them. It took me a while to get out of the album mindset, but now I just shuffle all the time. Every so often I have to hit the skip button, but it usually sounds much better than it looks on a list.

Love Me Like A Man (Bonnie Raitt)
This is a fine song about What Women Want (or don't) and I start thinking, "Wouldn't it be great if the next song were Nellie McKay's It's a Pose?" because it's a Men Are Awful song, but instead I get
That's My Job (Conway Twitty)
This is a real glurge of a ballad. The guy loves his dad. Aww. So much for hating mankind.
Bitties in the BK Lounge (De La Soul)
Fast food workers and customers trade insults. And look!
Instant Mash (Joe Jackson)
This one starts with supermarkets. How did shuffle do that? But there's more. The song is about turning off your brain. Next up:
Blueberry Yum Yum (Ludacris)
It's a song about smoking stuff. It's a good song.
Just Like Jim Brown (Pierce Pettis)
Well, the fIpod screwed up here. There is no flow from the previous song but I do love howling along with this one.
Now I'm Good (The Waybacks)
This song is funny. It doesn't fit anywhere, it's not even listed on the album. Hearing it is like getting a GOOD prize in your Crackerjacks.
Ue Wo Multe Arukou (Sami Kaneda)
I wanted a version of Sukiyaki and this is what I ended up with. It starts out perfect and then blows up, but it has grown on me.
Dear Employer (The Minus Five)
I'm always looking for reasons to quit, so this song fits anywhere.

I hardly ever remember to take pictures. Fortunately, I managed to sneak into someone's Faerie Festival photo.
