First Ten Random Songs

| | Comments (3)

I wanted to play this game that I found over at Dappled Things. I've included some links to artists that most people may not be familiar with, and should probably check out.

Here are the rules:

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.
5. Write it up in your blog or journal and link back to at least a couple of the other sites where you saw this.
6. 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.

Here are my 10:

1. Stevie Wonder, Sir Duke
2. Jamie Cullum, Frontin'
3. Manhattan Transfer, Sing Moten's Swing
4. Dean Martin, Volare
5. Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, Pange Lingua, sung by Chanticleer
6. Ray Charles, I Got A Woman
7. Chaka Khan, Through the Fire
8. Chris DeBurg, Lady in Red
9. Rich Mullins, Hold Me Jesus
10. Eric Clapton, Cocaine

And what the heck, here are the next ten:
11. The Pillows, Runners High
12. Wayne Kerr, Yeah Yeah Yeah
13. The Apologist, Catholics in Action
14. Chris Rice, Home Tonight
15. Stephen Lynch, Half A Man (A singing comedian. This is one of his lighter songs that doesn't involve his graphic lyrical imagery and cursing. Don't listen to the samples at work.)
16. Anúna, The Blue Bird
17. The Benjamin Gate, Lift Me Up
18. Monteverdi Choir and John Elliot Gardiner, O Vos Omnes
19. John Williams and the Boston Pops, Imperial March
20. The Innocence Mission, O Lord of Light


You'd laugh at me if I posted mine.

Never mind, you laugh at me regardless.


I absolutely love Hold Me Jesus by Rich Mullins...

I do too Andrea, it gets to me every time I hear it. The first time I heard it, I cried.
