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.
- Tic - Helmet
- Shadow Stabbing - Cake
- Geek U.S.A. - Smashing Pumpkins
- Go It Alone - Beck
- Protect Ya Neck - Wu-Tang Clan
- The Goat Song - Adam Sandler
- Gravity Rides Everything - Modest Mouse
- Money (Dollar Bill) - Everlast
- Reckless Abandon - Blink-182
- Ezekiel Saw The Wheel - Woody Guthrie
I saw Cake once at Molson Park in Barrie. They hit the stage and began slagging Canada, making jokes about how America might come up and annex our asses. The lead singer's tongue was no doubt firmly in his cheek, but that fact was lost on this particular crowd. This was a fiercely pro-Canada atmosphere as we anxiously awaited the headliners, Nickelback.
The crowd revolted in the only way a crowd like this can revolt. We began throwing plastic bottles at the band. After a couple of warnings and the hurling of more bottles, Cake said goodnight and left the stage. They were three songs into their set.
Sheep go to heaven, Cake can go to hell.
