iPod Meme

Randy tagged me with this and I couldn't wait to do it!! Music memes rock. I couldn't pass one of these up if I had to. So here's the deal with this one:

* Using the shuffle feature on your iPod (or other MP3 player), write down the first 10 songs that play.

* Don't be a PUNK and skip songs to find something better. If it pops up, it's in the 10

* Justify, defend or explain why those songs are on your iPod.

* Tag someone else to complete the meme.

If you don't have an iPod or similar device: You’re a loser.

1. Nancy Sinatra - "Boots are Made for Walking" I have no idea where I got this song. But last year I did a mass cleaning on every single one of my mp3's and discovered it. I had no idea she sang this song. Who doesn't love this song, seriously?! This is just one bad-ass song.

2. The Outfield - "I Don't Need Her" I had a cousin come stay with me from California once and he flew out from here, leaving me his truck for a week. I found one of The Outfield's CDs in his truck and couldn't stop listening to it. I picked up their greatest hits CD recently... they weren't one-hit wonders!

3. Smashing Pumpkins - "I Believe" This band is definitely my favorite band of all-time, and my iPod, and I have more than 240 SP songs loaded into iTunes! As you can imagine, they show up in many playlists on my iPod.

4. Nocera, "Summertime" I love the freestyle music genre. It's been lost, and I sure wish it would come back!

5. Pat Benatar - "I Need a Lover" Who doesn't have Pat Benatar in their music collection? I love this one because it's a remake of that famous song, you know the words: "I need a lover who won't drive me crazy..." I like that this version is from a woman's perspective. :)

6. Sting - "Epilogue (Nothing 'bout me)" I do believe that Ten Summoner's Tales is by far my favorite Sting album. I saw Sting open for The Grateful Dead of all bands. I went to see Sting for his music, I went to see The Grateful Dead for the experience.

7. Cinderella - "Somebody Save Me" Ok, I'll admit it. I had a mad crush on the lead singer for Cinderella, Tom Keifer. Saw them open for Bon Jovi way back when. I have good memories attached to this band, and I do have quite a bit of hair metal in my collection.

8. Sugar Ray - "Aim for Me" Uhhhh...have you seen Mark McGrath? I kid - I don't have any music based solely on how hot a band member is. But seriously, have you seen him? LOL

9. Nelly and Justin Timberlake - "Work It" I think Nelly and Justin make an awesome duo, this song just makes me wanna move! I heard it on the radio and promptly found it online.

10. Blue October - "Drilled a Wire Through My Cheek" Blue October kicks ass, that's all there is to it. This is a darker song, but all of Blue October's albums have a nice balance of dark/light songs. This was not a song I was all that fond of the first time I heard it... but it definitely grew on me.

Well there you have it. I'm not tagging anyone, but you should totally do it... this was actually very easy (and fun!).

I'd almost say it's like listing to Jack 100.5....except a couple of those songs. Fun Meme. I may have to do this one.

Randy said...

Man you have a vast collection. I love seeing Cinderella in there HAHAHA. You are a music freak, I love it!

This reminds me I have an Ipod meme to do...

Oh and does this mean you got your pod fixed?
