today's post brought to you by DiDC

Blog post choice: You're a sentient, self-aware, IPOD shuffle. What are the first 20 songs you spit out. Give song and artist, so we know whose version you're playing?

Any question regarding me and music is tough. But, here goes. These are the 20 I narrowed it down to for today! (tomorrow, half of them might be different. . .)

1. Thunder Road- Bruce Springsteen of course. Off the live album, though, I love that version.
2. Finlandia- by J. Sibelius
3. Bolero- Ravel. Most orchestra's cannot manage to screw this one up. My version actually on my iPod is by the Philadelphia Orchestra, actually.
4. Russians- Sting
5. (Pride) in the name of love- U2
6.La Vie En Rose- Edith Piaf
7. Red Admiral Butterfly- James Galway and the Chieftains
8. For What It's Worth- Buffalo Springfield
9. Respect- Aretha Franklin
10. Norweigian Wood- The Beatles
11. You Really Got A Hold On Me- Smokey Robinson
12. Home Michael Buble
13. Blues Man Alan Jackson
14. Existential Blues Tom "T-Bone" Stankus (had to throw in some Demento fodder)
15. Gone Jack Johnson
16. Blue Skies Frank Sinatra
17. Pennsylvania 6-5000 Glenn Miller Orchestra
18. Alison Elvis Costello
19. D-I-V-O-R-C-E Tammy Wynette
20. Hysteria- Def Leppard (hair band 80's has to represent somewhere).

I don't know quite what this list says about my mood today! It's a nice day here in Podunk, I'm going to go take a walk, now :)

Should we do this on our blog or here, junking up your comments section?! Kinda fun...
Good list! Minus Michael Buble - hey I can't like everything, right? He's good, but man... I saw him on the Today show one morning and his cheese factor made me want to kill people! Haha

Syb- yeah, he is kind of cheesy, but I like his voice, especially that song. I just don't watch him on any TV. Or anything else for that matter.

What an eclectic group. My music choices are similar. I like a little of this and a little of that.

Wow, I like your answer a lot better than my question.

Thanks for salvaging a cliche with a list that defies categorization.

mielikki said...

Lori- I am ALL over the place with my musical tastes. Its one of my many talents!
DiDC-glad you liked it! My lists seem to always defy any kind of categorization :)

Great list! Gotta love the Def Leppard though! Need me to send you the GNR pants for a night out? (ok, I think I'm totally hysterical)

I am afraid the GNR pants would be bored here in Podunk, they had so much fun with you!
