What's On My iPod

Trans X - Living On Video - Even if I'm feeling like I'm on my deathbed, this song can get me moving. One of my very favorite 80's "techno" tunes, hands down. The video is hilarious... you get to see some really bad dancing, and some ancient computers.

Cowboy Junkies - Sweet Jane - This song appears on the Natural Born Killers soundtrack, and my version has a bit of dialogue at the start between Mickey (Woody Harrelson) and Mallory (Juliette Lewis). I love this song and it was fitting since it comes from a pretty disturbing movie (much like the one I'm currently working my way through, Very Bad Things).

The Who - Baba O'Riley - Definitely a classic. This is a live version, and it's a little old, but I can't tell from when?

Sugar Ray - Mr. Bartender (It's So Easy) - Since Mark McGrath is hosting Entertainment Tonight, I wonder if this band will be recording anymore. But I'm okay just watching him, ya know?

Brian McKnight - Anytime - A very good, sentimental song. It just never gets old to me.

Yea, somebody else who has Baba O'Riley on their iPod. Oh and I knew you wouldn't be one of those nobs who think it's called Teenage Wasteland. It drives me nuts when people call it that. I always get a kick out of the "what's on my iPod" post because you have just all over random music. Rock On

"Living On Video" is a classic 80's track indeed. Technology so new to them that even saying 'computer interface' was hip. My appreciation for the video and dancing would probably have been more in that time period.

"Sweet Jane" is an amazing song. The style of most of the tracks from the Trinity Sessions album are more appreciated by me over time. I do keep forgetting that it was in Natural Born Killers.

"Baba O'Riley" is one of the reasons I've been considering the new Who 'best of'. The keyboard textures merge with the percussion and the passion of the song incredibly well. I was even impressed with the Blue Man Group's version of it.

I really don't know how I missed the release of "Mr. Bartender (It's So Easy)." I can say that when they bury me, I'll probably have a Sugar Ray 'greatest hits' in my collection. I'm still holding out though.

"Anytime" is a great song for reflection. B)
