Let’s Shuffle, Shall We?

  

Bad news: You’re overdue for your seasonal music check-up.

Don’t worry, though. We’ll make this as quick and painless as possible. Simply grab your media player of choice, turn your head to the left, shuffle 20 times, and you’ll be out of here before you can say “Are you sure my insurance will cover this?”

  15. George Fletcher says

    Always a fun feature. My iPod came up very female-centric this morning, but with fewer shame-inducing entries than it sometimes chooses:

    1. Indigo Girls – Strange Fire
    2. George Jones – Still Doing Time

      • George Fletcher says

        Agreed, Eric! That is a great song by them. It was just such a different sound when it came out, and sealed my being an Indigo fan from then on. I was also happy when Kate Campbell came up … she’s one of those artists who I don’t listen to often, but every time she pops up on my iPod, I think I should and end up buying another CD from her catalog!

    19. Original Broadway Cast from Rent – Out Tonight
    20. Leona Lewis – Hurt (lacks the gravitas of Johnny Cash’s cover)

    Surprisingly, no Dolly or Reba came up since I have around 500 and 400 songs from each of them respectively.

    Seeing this list makes me realize how much I’ve stopped listening to country. That used to be ALL I listened to. Also, forgive me for the Country Strong soundtrack.. There’s some good songs on there!

    • George Fletcher says

      I’m surprised you found time for this, what with updating Bob Loblaw’s Law Blog … The Country Strong soundtrack is forgivable … there *are* some good cuts on it!

    9. Marty Stuart – Sundown In Nashville (I guess my ipod agrees that ‘Tear The Woodpile Down’ is the album of the year to date)
