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.
- All Uncovered - The Watchmen
- The Beautiful American - Louis Armstrong & Duke Ellington
- Ring of Fire - Joaquin Phoenix
- Breath - Pearl Jam
- Triad - Tool
- Mr. Jack - System of a Down
- Human Behaviour - Bjork
- Unexplainable Hunger - Classified
- Guantanamera - Wyclef Jean
- 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.
