50 Random Songs From My MP3 Player


Before you start to read this, I'm issuing a warning.

My musical taste is all over the place, so feel free to say WTF at any time. It's fine. I won't be offended.

It's cool if you're confused by my choices. I'm accustomed to that sort of thing. LOL

Some of you may be downright horrified at some of the tunes I'm listening to at the moment, come to think of it. That's cool, too.

I like these songs, I stand by my choices and you can't stop me. LOL

Okay, I was getting kinda sad, because I didn't have a clue about most of these. (To be honest, by the time I got to Hansen, I was down right worried "DC? Ebony? Hansen? Naaahhh")

But then I hit 29 (it HAS to be the live one)
and 26. And 21 (which would probably be in my top five) And 17 (yes! a little known one!) and 9 and 7 and 6 and 2 and...
ONE!!!!

That was good for me, was it good for you???

Meetings suck. Song titles are important. Glad to see your values are in the right place.

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

I fully expected to get some static about including Hanson, but that is a bad-ass song. It probably would have done well if people didn't know it was them.

I do indeed have my priorities in order.

Music is very important.

I love shopping for music online.

It's a great thing to do when you have some quiet time to yourself on a rainy afternoon.

I hope that you get some ideas from that bizarre list of mine.

The songs I listed were the ones I could remember at the moment I sat down to type the list.

Valleyrat -

Is our musical taste far ranging or just mixed the hell up? LOL

I'm going to have to check out the Gorillaz song. It will probably end up in the MP3 player if I know me. I'll have to look into Soul Survivors, too.

I like me some Nelly. Her voice would never be mistaken for someone else's.

Level 42 has an amazing body of work, most of which I had to pay through the nose for because the CDs were imports. (I'd have been royally pissed off if they weren't good albums.)

You know your "head turning songs"? If I'm playing them in the car, not only do I blast them, but I sing along at full volume.

I don't care who sees me and if the other motorists think I'm crazy, they'll hopefully stay away from me. I'll do anything to keep other vehicles a full car length (or more) away from me. LOL

Amazed at someone knowing who Level42 were! And... do you also know where did they take their name from?

I was just wondering if you adopt the same variety when you are cooking too?

Ehr... baby, what if I take you to that new diner at the corner?

Never argue with an idiot. He brings you down to his level then beats you with experience

You're a Levelhead?

Level 42 comes from the Hitchhiker's Guide. 42 is the answer to everything.

I like a variety of cuisines from different restaurants? Does that count? LOL

You were gonna try to cuss me out? Bring it. LOL

I'm glad you think Something About You is the shit because I think so too. They have a lot of great material, but that is one of their very best songs.

Keep in mind that this is a random list of what I have on my MP3 player.

I have to say that I loved The Police, but I'm not a huge fan of Sting's solo stuff. I still lust after him and think he's a great performer, but none of his stuff since The Police has particularly excited me. Sorry, solo Sting fans. I know what I just wrote is blasphemy to you. LOL

Watch this space for another random listing of songs sometime.

Maybe there will be some more tunes to your liking.

(Thanks for visiting, btw.)

DCEbony : God I love you! *lol* What a FANTASTIC list you have! Anyone who adds FMN and Jamiroquai (not to mention Level 42!) gets HUGE points in my book!

Incidentally, the Police song "Driven To Tears" is one of my favourites. I don't care for Sting's solo music either.

I loved your playlist hun! Thank you for stopping by my blog earlier on! Visit again some day!

NJS -

If you find that selection amusing, you might be interested in the next random 50 that I'm planning to post soon. I can assure you that it'll be another hodgepodge of artists.

"Driven to Tears" is definitely a classic. "Message in a Bottle" is still my very favorite Police song. (I've seen Sting do it on his own in a couple of televised performances, but it's just meh. Funny considering he wrote it. LOL )

I'll be happy to visit your blog again.

Thanks for hanging out with me on mine.

I STUMBLED ONTO YOUR BLOGS BY ACCIDENT AND READ A FEW OF THEM. YOU ARE A VERY INSIGHTFUL PERSON. I HAVE FOUND MY SELF LAUGHING AND QUESTIONING SOME OF THE SAME THINGS WHEN I HAVE READ OR RECEIVED PROFILES! THIS ONE I WANTED TO RESPOND TO BECAUSE I SHARE SOME OF YOUR MUSICAL INTEREST! MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY OFTEN LABEL ME AS ODD OR STRANGE BECAUSE OF SOME OF MY MUSICAL CHOICES. BUT I KNOW WHAT I LIKE AND THEREFORE SAY GET A LIFE WHEN THEY QUESTION WHO I LIKE. I AGREE WITH SOME OF THE OTHERS WHO RESPONDED HERE MUSIC IS FAR MORE IMPORTANT THAN SOME BORING STAFF MEETING ANYWAY. SO AS THEY SAY KEEP THE MUSIC PLAYIN AND DONT CARE WHAT OTHERS THINK. LOOKING FORWARD TO READING MORE OF YOUR BLOGS!
