iPod meme


From DivaKitty and the Fluffies and perfect on a mindless Friday night after a very looong week at work.

Put your iPod on shuffle and blog the first twenty songs in the shuffle.

1. Don't Be So Hard on Yourself - Luka Bloom
2. Angel - Sara McLachlan
3. Nightingale - Norah Jones
4. The Long Day is Over - Norah Jones
5. Come Away With Me - Norah Jones
6. Forgiveness - Luka Bloom
7. Boondocks - Little Big Town
8. Bring It On Home - Little Big Town
9. Something More - Sugarland
10. Come a Little Closer - Dirks Bentley
11. Rainbow Warrior - Luka Bloom
12. Turn Me On - Norah Jones
13. Blackberry Time - Luka Bloom
14. Lot of Leavin' Left to Do - Dirks Bentley
15. I've Got to See You Again - Norah Jones
16. Days Go By - Keith Urban
17. Home - Michael Buble
18. Your Body is a Wonderland - John Mayer
19. Must Be Doin' Something Right - Billy Currington
20. Pay Me My Money Down - Bruce Springsteen

If anyone would like to play along - have a go at it! I find it really interesting to discover what kind of music people like listening to - always a surprise. My iPod is pretty new so there aren't very many songs on it. The mix is fairly eclectic; quite a bit of Irish alternative and folk music, some country, some jazz, some pop. The last song I downloaded was Bruce's "Pay Me My Money Down" - I love the feel of that song.

I only use my iPod at work when I want to tune out all the chatter around me. It helps me concentrate to not have to overhear everyone's personal phone calls and extended whining sessions. There has been an awful lot of that crap lately and entirely too much foolishness. I'm having flashbacks to when I was teaching kindergarten. Not kidding! Makes me want t0 change careers and pick vegetables for a living.

P.S. That's off mine not Doug's :)

Love mine too, Michelle!

Your list is really varied - wow! Your DH's list would be interesting, mostly to see what you think is awful.

The Michael Buble song on my list is a song I downloaded for my husband. All the country songs are his fault too - he always has that country music channel on the tv - hated it at first, but it sort of grows on you after a while!

LauraHinNJ said...

Wow, thanks Doug the DH! I don't think your list is so bad, but do wonder about some of it. I love the Eagles - my older brothers listened to them.

Ludacris? The posies? Foss stone? Am I out of touch or have I gotten old?

Thanks for playing along. Your DW is the best!

Michelle Lewis said...

FOFL - I told Doug to let me fix his typos but he refused :)

Joss Stone not Foss, and well, I must admit I was surprised that not as much junk came up as I expected. I must be winning :)))

The Posies are great, you should sample a few songs from iTunes.
