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. Rock N' Me - The Steve Miller Band
  2. The Wars End - Rancid
  3. Jesus Christ Pose - Soundgarden
  4. You Will Be Waiting - Barenaked Ladies
  5. Body and Soul - The Sisters of Mercy
  6. You're Not From Brighton - Fatboy Slim
  7. Six Feet Deep - Geto Boys
  8. Summer Cannibals - Patti Smith
  9. The List - Metric
  10. Highway Star - Deep Purple

Some great rock voices emerged from Seattle in the late 80s and early 90s.  Kurt Cobain had that wicked scream and Ed Vedder had that definitive angsty croon but Chris Cornell had that impossible range.  He was the best of the bunch and "Jesus Christ Pose" is that song I first skip to when I'm craving some Soundgarden.

It's totally manic, loud and proud and everything I love about rock.  The video was awesome too.  I saw it on MuchMusic several times but it was actually banned by MTV and hasn't aired there since 1991.  I'm gonna share this one on Wednesday because it's killer.
