Stop, Drop, Shuffle

  

It’s that time again: Fire up your iTunes, Windows Media Player (probably just me…) or other music software of choice, set it on shuffle, and show us what you’ve got. If all your music is still on CD/cassette/vinyl/abacus/what-have-you and thus not shuffleable, just sit quietly and twiddle your thumbs. We’ll be done soon.

Remember, embarrassing surprises give your list character, so leave ‘em in. We promise not to laugh… too much.

    • brz says

      thanks Pistolero. i like a lot of stuff. i think i’m going to have to do some reading of your blog. the quote about “Iron Maiden and Hank Thompson” really hit home (although i’d swap out Motorhead for Iron Maiden).

      • says

        Oh yeah, Motorhead’s gotten to be a fave too, though I don’t have any of their stuff yet. To be fair, though, that’s because I’ve been buying up stuff from other older metal bands — Megadeth, Queensryche, Iron Maiden, etc. I am a relative latecomer to the more traditional metal; I’ve only really gotten into it in the last couple of years, via Sirius satellite radio. Like I tell people now and then, I hate that it took me 20 years to discover that music, but better late than never. ;-)
