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.
- Immortality - Pearl Jam
- Zero - Smashing Pumpkins
- Painkillers - Everlast
- Breed - Nirvana
- Little Terror - Matthew Good
- Livin' On The Edge - Aerosmith
- Cold Cold Heart - Norah Jones
- Money (Dollar Bill) - Everlast
- Apartment Song - The Tragically Hip
- Dating Game - Handsome Boy Modeling School
I've always liked Matthew Good's music. During the Underdogs days, I took a lot of heat from my brothers for digging their sound. I think my brothers lumped them in with a series of run-of-the-mill Canadian bands that were getting undeserved exposure thanks to CRTC regulations. When I saw Pearl Jam at Molson Park in 1998, the Matthew Good Band played the small stage and it was a mosh paradise. Taryn will vouch for the fact I was right in the middle of this frenzy. I had the cuts and scrapes to prove it.
I recently had the chance to chat with Matt Good and I even interviewed him for this site. You can check out the interview here.
Oh be joyful!
