20 Songs Meme

I used my Rockbox which mostly has the stuff I particularly like but also has stuff that is new and hasn't had the boring tracks culled, yet.

1. I Put a Spell on You -- Credence Clearwater Revival
2. Juan Loco -- Rodrigo & Gabriela
3. Ghostbusters -- Ray Parker Jr.
4. stray -- Yoko Kanno
5. So Long It's Been Good to Know Yuh -- Weavers
6. 12 Step Program -- Nick Lowe
7. Take the Reins -- Mike + the Mechanics
8. The Battle of Bull Run -- Johnny Horton
9. The Dirty Boogie -- Brian Setzer
10. Smiling Faces -- Undisputed Truth
11. WANTED! (karaoke version) -- One Piece Music and Song Collection 2 (the artist was probably in kanji)
12. Christmas at Ground Zero -- "Weird Al" Yankovic
13  Suite in D for two trumpets, timpani, strings and basso continuo: Les Postillions -- Telemann
14. Clutch -- Future Blues is the album but I don't know the artist.
15. Yakko's Universe -- Yakko Warner
16. I Fought the Law -- Bobby Fuller Four
17. Cat Blues -- Yoko Kanno
18. Babylonian Babe -- Mr. Pink
19. Zombie Prostitute -- Voltaire
20. Overtaken -- One Piece Music and Song Collection 2 (the artist was probably in kanji)
21. Johnny Quest/Stop the Pigeon -- Reverend Horton Heat
22. Half a Boy and Half a Man -- Nick Lowe
23. Achy Breaky Song -- "Weird Al" Yankovic

Note 1: I expect to cull tracks 1, 5 and 7 so I did 23. 19 isn't ringing a bell but all Voltaire sounds alike.
Note 2: I actually have artists on there besides Nick Lowe, Yoko Kanno, Weird Al and  One Piece OSTs. I have the Austin Lounge Lizards.
Note 3: The instructions say to tag but I don't roll that way. I am a believer in self-tagging.

Once you've been tagged...
(1) Turn on your MP3 player or Computer
(2) Go to SHUFFLE songs mode.
(3) Write down the first 20 songs that come up--song title and artist--NO editing/cheating, please.
(4) Choose however many people you wish. It is generally considered to be in good taste to tag the person who tagged you.

*If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about your musical tastes, or at least a random sampling thereof.

Wouldn't it be terrible if my computer was stuck on shuffle.

I had Weird Al come up next to Telemann. But actually I usually listen on shuffle if I can't decide what I want to listen to. It's all good.

Is 6 Tony Toni Tone? I listened to part on YouTube, nice voices.

This is embarrassing, but the only songs I have right now are 22 from The Best of Warren Zevon. Media files are freaking out both of my OS's so they're all on my external drive which I can't boot so, sigh.

Your shuffle sounds interesting. I love The Battle of Bull Run.

I've got quite a bit of Johnny Horton. EMusic has some mono tracks from Louisiana Hayride (a radio show) and I also have some of the more famous stuff.

On perusing Wikipedia and interrogating my husband, I'm pretty sure I've never knowingly heard any Zevon though P does say that "My Shit's Fucked Up" is a great song and it just gets better as you get older. I may have to look into this.

You have to have heard Lawyers, Guns, and Money. It's like an anthem.

You have probably heard Werewolves of London and possibly heard Excitable Boy.

I was surprised at how pretty a couple of his more obscure songs are. I got the cd at Wal-mart for something like $5.00 even though I was only familiar with those 3 songs because, you know...it was only $5 and I got 22 songs. I sometimes shop stupidly like that.

I have Lawyers, Guns, and Money, and Werewolves on my external drive but it's reached the point where it's just easier to buy the song than fix my MBR.

I probably have heard the songs in the since they were playing in a room I was in but not in the sense that I paid attention to them.

The other day, MD and P were swearing up and down that I had heard X while I said no. They played it and I recognized it as something MD plays often by the tune but as for the words or title, no.

Now I just want to sing it to you.

I'll have to find "My Shit's Fucked Up" somewhere. It's not on the greatest hits but I don't think that means it's not a hit. He had a short-lived career and I'm sure the Warren Zevon goodness is spread a little thin.
