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. Rio Grande Blood - Ministry
  2. My Way - Sex Pistols
  3. All Canadian Surf Club - The Tragically Hip
  4. Anyway You Want Me - Bread
  5. Lying From You - Linkin Park
  6. Your Saviour - Temple of the Dog
  7. Santa Claus Is On His Way - Mr. Hankey
  8. At 24 - Skydiggers
  9. Adam's Song - Blink-182
  10. Daisy - Stone Temple Pilots

I can no longer listen to "Adam's Song" without thinking of the 24 pages of comments on our SLS site regarding the Blink-182 hit.

At the beginning of the discussion, started back in September 2006, I used to interject my two cents regularly.  Then, things got awfully dark and depressing, and I backed out to let nature take its course.  Finally, after the trillionth threatened pre-teen suicide in this discussion and the Good Charlotte "Hold On" discussion, I wrote this.  I don't know if it did any good, but I felt better knowing it was there.
