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.

  1. Bewitched - Brutal Juice
  2. Last Kiss - Pearl Jam
  3. Been There Done That - Dr. Dre
  4. Fake - Korn
  5. Stick 2 The Script - Jay-Z
  6. Soldier - Neil Young
  7. Caring Is Creepy - The Shins
  8. Tears On My Pillow - Clem Snide
  9. Logical Song - Supertramp
  10. Awake - Godsmack

"Stubbs the Zombie" is a video game.  I didn't know that when a friend told me to take a listen to the soundtrack.  Video games, it seems, now have soundtracks.

The game takes place in 1959 and the soundtrack is a number of songs from the era performed some of today's coolest artists.  Death Cab For Cutie, The Flaming Lips, The Raveonettes, The Walkmen, Rose Hill Drive and more.  This stuff is solid gold for car rides with the kids.  They love these sweet 50s ditties like "Tears On My Pillow", "My Boyfriend's Back", "Earth Angel" and "All I Have to Do Is Dream" and I dig it too.  James is always asking for "Lollipop" from Ben Kweller.

Stubbs is a family friendly Zombie and welcome in my car anytime.
