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.
- Chi - Korn
- Come On - The Verve
- What Is?... - The Kleptones
- Jump Around - House Of Pain
- Dig A Pony - The Beatles
- The Good That Won't Come Out - Rilo Kiley
- Fiesta - The Pogues
- Strange Brew - Eric Clapton
- Hello City - Barenaked Ladies
- 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.
