Friday random ten: Under cover

We’re getting close to the end of the alphabet, and along with it we’re getting into some letters that don’t work well with this format I’ve been using. I had to fudge a bit to come up with ten songs that start with the word “Under”.

1. Under African Skies – Paul Simon
2. Under Control – Parachute
3. Under David’s Feet – Eddie From Ohio
4. Under Fiery Skies – SixMileBridge
5. Under My Wheels – Alice Cooper
6. Under Pressure – Queen & David Bowie
7. Under The Hedge – Ted Leo/Pharmacists
8. Under The Wrench – Red Meat
9. Under Winter – Rachael Davis
10. Underground – Men At Work

I can’t think of a clever way to ask you what songs you have that begin with the word “Under” while actually using the word “Under” in the question, so let’s just assume I did and proceed from there.

Entire song list report: Started with “The Fever”, by Southside Johnny and The Jukes. Ended with “French Shore”, by Great Big Sea, song #1567, for 127 songs this week.

In other exciting news about my music collection, I’ve finally dusted off my USB turntable and started converting my vinyl to MP3s. My strategy of not getting around to it for more than a year has paid off in that the turntable manufacturer has put out some new and improved software that makes the process a lot easier. Instead of having to use Audacity to capture the audio and subsequently divide it into individual tracks, there’s now a fairly simple program that does it for you. The main drawback is that it assumes any sufficiently long silence means the end of one song and the beginning of another, so a tune with a quiet bit in the middle of it, like The Who’s “Who Are You?”, can wind up as two tracks. A bit annoying, but not the end of the world. Finally having some of this stuff on my iPod more than makes up for it. And as long as I’m being OCD about these things, I’ll keep track of the vinyl I’ve ripped in these threads as well. So far, I’ve done Pete Townshend’s “White City” and The Who’s “Greatest Hits”. I’ve also got a little free time this weekend that ought to allow for a couple more albums to join them. I don’t have that many remaining LPs but it may take me longer to get all these done than it will to go through the entire song list. We’ll see.

    Separate but related to the “U” problem: Baseball Tonight dug up the positively weirdest trivial baseball fact I’ve seen in years if not ever. In yesterday’s Phillies – Nationals game Utley, Victorino and Zimmerman hit home runs. ESPN’s researchers concluded that was the first time in BB history guys whose last names began with those letters had ever hit home runs in the same game.
