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.
- The Great Satan - Ministry
- One Mint Julep - Ray Charles
- 1979 - Smashing Pumpkins
- Bombtrack - Rage Against The Machine
- Five To One - The Doors
- Sweet Sunshine - Beck
- Rusty Cage - Soundgarden
- Cause I Can Do It Right - Big Daddy Kane
- Freak Magnet - L7
- Win the West - Emm Gryner
I always thought "1979" was the perfect second single from Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. They led with the infectious rocker "Bullet With Butterfly Wings" and followed that up with what would become their biggest hit.
It also had one of the cooler videos of 1996 when I was still young enough to relate.
