What's on my iPod

For my last posting before Christmas, here's my entry in the online parlour game of sharing what crops up if you shuffle the whole of your computer's music library:

  1. Release yourself — Graham Central Station
  2. Suikinkutsu Water Chime — nature recording by David Toop
  3. Free Culture, Chapter 11: Chimera — Lawrence Lessig, read by Dave Winer
  4. Can't seem to make you mine — The Seeds
  5. Pursuance — John Coltrane
  6. Little Moses — The Carter Family
  7. It makes a fellow proud to be a soldier — Tom Lehrer
  8. Get ready for love — Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds
  9. Heart of Gold — Neil Young
  10. Priznak Aluminium — Violet

Here are the rules — via Josie Fraser, D'Arcy Norman and back ad infinitum — if you want to play:

  1. Open up the music player on your computer.
  2. Set it to play your entire music collection.
  3. Hit the 'shuffle' command.
  4. Tell us the title of the next ten songs that show up (with their musicians), no matter how embarrassing. That's right, no skipping that Carpenters tune that will totally destroy your hip credibility. It's time for total musical honesty. Write it up in your blog or journal and link back to at least a couple of the other sites where you saw this.
  5. If you get the same artist twice, you may skip the second (or third, or etc.) occurances. You don't have to, but since randomness could mean you end up with a list of ten song with five artists, you can if you'd like.

Have a good Christmas!
