The Monday Shuffle


Every 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 new spin.  At the end of this list, I'm going to share a personal story about one of the ten.

  1. Remote Control - The Age of Electric
  2. Drinking in L.A. - Bran Van 3000
  3. Respect Yourself - Robert Palmer
  4. Unseen Power of the Picket Fence - Pavement
  5. Teenage Lament '74 - Alice Cooper
  6. Who Am I? - Lou Reed
  7. About A Girl - Nirvana
  8. Raspberry Beret - Prince
  9. Again - Lenny Kravitz
  10. How Does A Duck Know - Crash Test Dummies

Periodically, Taryn and I take a road trip to Ottawa.  An album that always gets played during these trips East is Alice Cooper's Greatest Hits.  "Teenage Lament '74" is always a favourite, demanding a sing-along.  The reason Alice Cooper's Greatest Hits is in my collection at all is because of countless afternoon's at Joe's house blasting this record.  There was much respect given to Vincent Furnier, all well deserved.
