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. All Uncovered - The Watchmen
  2. The Beautiful American - Louis Armstrong & Duke Ellington
  3. Ring of Fire - Joaquin Phoenix
  4. Breath - Pearl Jam
  5. Triad - Tool
  6. Mr. Jack - System of a Down
  7. Human Behaviour - Bjork
  8. Unexplainable Hunger - Classified
  9. Guantanamera - Wyclef Jean
  10. Dear Diary - Travis

One of my favourite songs of all time played during this shuffle.  I bought The Watchmen's In The Trees because it was on sale during the Sam the Record Man clearance sale at their Jane and Bloor location and I was digging the heavily played lead single "Boneyard Tree".  One spin at home and I had a new favourite cut on the album, "All Uncovered".

I still remember first catching the video for "All Uncovered" on MuchMusic.  It struck the perfect tone for the song and to this day if I'm making a mix I try and sneak it on.  It even found its way onto the 100 song wedding playlist I put together last month.  I shared the MP3 last year but if you want to hear it drop me a line.  Satisfaction guaranteed.
