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 personal story about one of them.
- Soap - Eminem
- Hold Your Head Up - Agrent
- Heaven Can Wait - Meat Loaf
- Helpless - Neil Young
- Where Have You Been? - Jay-Z
- Incarnate - The Watchmen
- 9 Teen 90 Nine - Limp Bizkit
- Autumn Shade II - The Vines
- Goodnight Josephine - The Tragically Hip
- Disclaimer - The Offspring
The Offspring... where do I begin? Over a decade ago, CFNY Edge 102 started playing "Come Out and Play" from their breakthrough album Smash. It was a cool song with a cool video and was soon followed up by an even better tune, "Self Esteem". I bought Smash and quickly labelled it a play-through, an album without a weak track you could spin on repeat without boredom. It was all good, from 1 to 14. Even the hidden track was good. Damn I liked that album.
Their follow up was good too, but it was no Smash. Subsequent releases disappointed me and today Smash is the only Offspring album I'll intentionally spin. Ya gotta keep 'em separated.
