iPod Shuffle Contest Answers

So the music snob in me is kind of pleased my taste in music is so obscure no one could guess any of the songs. On the other hand, the needy blogger in me is kind of upset no one could guess any of the songs.

Nevertheless, it it time to post the song list.

1. Pink Moon - Nick Drake (seriously, 9/10ths of the lyrics are "Pink moon. Pink pink pink pink moon.")

2. Recycled Air - The Postal Service

3. The Anchor Song - Bjork

4. Dark Haired True Lover - The Carter Family

5. Drinking Wine Spo-Dee-O-Dee - Richard Thompson (although if you said Jerry Lee Lewis, that is perfectly fine)

6. Feeling Yourself Disintegrate - The Flaming Lips

7. History of Lovers - Iron & Wine

8. Asheveille - They Might Be Giants

9. Windout - R.E.M

10. Disco Inferno - The Trammps

11. S' Wonderful - Ella Fitzgerald (but practically everyone has recorded this song so the performer shouldn't count)

12. Honeymoon Suite - Suzanne Vega

13. Mother of Pearl - Nellie McKay

14. Strong Hand (Just One Miracle) - Emmylou Harris

15. Mad Lucas - The Breeders

Duplicate bands omitted during the initial shuffle include - R.E.M., The Carter Family, They Might Be Giants, and Suzanne Vega.


Still trying to come up with an idea for a real blog post. Whenever there isn't any activity here, it means, I don't have too much time on my hands.

I fully understand the lack of time (notice the lack of anything on my blog for awhile).

These songs are pretty foreign to me, but I do remember something about Tramps and touching yourself or something...I think

P.S. So do you need to change the name of your's misleading?

So much for the title of your blog, btw...
