Many moons ago, Kristen (who is among my oldest friends) made the suggestion that I put my iTunes on random and just make a mix of the first load of songs that come up. For reasons unclear (mostly laziness I suspect), I never got around to it until last week, where I specifically just threw the iPhone into a frenzy as I scrolled through my 32GB library and decided to hit shuffle, which resulted in the wonderful “Cruel to be Kind” by Nick Lowe. I then pressed Genius to see what it’d recommend and the result was…. well, it was all over the place, but it actually sounded pretty good. I didn’t change the order or anything.
So here you go. My mix, based on what iTunes thinks I like with the random selection of Nick Lowe…
- Nick Lowe – Cruel to be Kind
- John Hiatt – Ethylene
- William Shatner – Ideal Woman
- Aimee Mann – Put Me On Top
- Hall & Oates – Did It In A Minute
- Sleep Out – Three Towns
- Electronic – Getting Away With It
- The Dead Weather – Treat Me Like Your Mother
- Mexican Institute of Sound – Sinfonía Agridulce
- Prince – She’s Always In My Hair
- Saul Williams – The Ritual
- Jellyfish – The Glutton of Sympathy
- Santigold – Say Aha
- The Go! Team – Get It Together
- Prodigy – Memphis Bells
- Street Sweeper Social Club – Fight! Smash! Win!
- The Roots – No Great Pretender
- Squirrel Nut Zippers – It Ain’t You
- Astrud Gilberto – Light My Fire
- Tom Jones – Green, Green Grass of Home
Please… also let me know how my voice sounds. I was so pissed off with my last show that I plunked down for a Blue Snowball and I think it’s a marked improvement. You tell me…
