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. Chi - Korn
  2. Come On - The Verve
  3. What Is?... - The Kleptones
  4. Jump Around - House Of Pain
  5. Dig A Pony - The Beatles
  6. The Good That Won't Come Out - Rilo Kiley
  7. Fiesta - The Pogues
  8. Strange Brew - Eric Clapton
  9. Hello City - Barenaked Ladies
  10. Sexy M.F. - Prince

About a year ago, a friend of mine who lives in California sent me an mp3 of Rilo Kiley's "The Good That Won't Come Out".  After one listen I was hooked.  It's an absolutely fantastic song that gets better as it progresses, reaching a crescendo just before it leaves you wanting more.  I'll share this thing Wednesday and you can hear for yourself.

I've never heard a single reference to Rilo Kiley on our local "alternative rock" radio station.  Apparently, it's still too indie.  Based on what I've heard, that's going to change fairly soon.
