The Monday Shuffle

iTunesEvery Monday I shuffle my entire MP3 collection in iTunes and list the first ten songs that play. Here are the ten tunes I heard today with a personal story about one of them.

  1. Crooked Nigga Too - 2Pac
  2. Ch-Check It Out - Beastie Boys
  3. Them Bones - Alice In Chains
  4. Coruroy - Pearl Jam
  5. Let It Grow - Eric Clapton
  6. Plush - Stone Temple Pilots
  7. Deep - Pearl Jam
  8. If You Could Read My Mind - Gordon Lightfoot
  9. Figure 8 - Trust Company
  10. Steppin' To The A.M. - 3rd Bass

I have a trustworthy friend who swears he was in the room when Gordon Lightfoot signed his first record contract. This event apperently took place at a downtown club after Lightfoot performed. I'm not sure I believe it, but I'm happy to give him the benefit of the doubt and it's a cool story regardless.

To my ears, nothing is more Canadian than that sweet tone of Lightfoot's voice telling a tale to music. My favourite Lightfoot tune is probably "Early Mornin' Rain", but when it comes to pure Canadiana, nothing beats "Canadian Railroad Trilogy". Is there a more Canadian song?
