Hey, here’s a radical idea: How about I hit Shuffle on my iPod and report the first ten songs that come up? You know, like they used to do in the old days? No theme, just ten randomly-played songs. What a novel idea.
1. One Half Laughing – The Aislers Set
2. Prom Night In Pig Town – Trout Fishing In America
3. Big Daddy Of Them All – John Mellencamp
4. More I Cannot Wish You – Georgetown Chimes
5. Gonna Make It – Marcia Ball, Angela Strehli, and Lou Ann Barton
6. Jersey Girl – Bruce Springsteen
7. Up The Junction – Beth Madden
8. Wild West End – Dire Straits
9. The Breakdown – Los Lobos
10. Alma – Tom Lehrer
Rather serendipitous that “Jersey Girl” happened to come up so soon after being a featured video. “Up the Junction” is from a Coverville collection that you can still download if you’re so inclined. What are you listening to this week?
