The Monday Shuffle


Every once in a blue 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. Kick It In - Simple Minds
  2. I'm Hiding - Korn
  3. One Step Closer - Linkin Park
  4. One - Filter
  5. Hypnotize - System of a Down
  6. One Day - The Verve
  7. Crazy Little Thing Called Love - Queen
  8. Song 2 - Blur
  9. Sweet Hitch Hiker - Creedence Clearwater Revival
  10. Next Man - Everlast

I was working at my first full-time gig when "Song 2" was released.  It was a smash hit and everyone was singing that "Woo Hoo" chorus.  A work buddy of mine, Jay Gonzalvo, was sure the lyrics started with "I got my head shaved".  I had actually seen the video in French with English subtitles and knew for a fact Damon Albarn was singing "I got my head checked".

Needless to say, hilarity ensued.
