TVD Shuffle Bored | July 7, 2008

The time has drawn neigh, TVD reader, to wrestle once again with happenstance and the uncertainties of the iPod. To place fate in the thumb and forefinger which select 'Shuffle Songs' and be witness to the dulcet tones that spring forth within the ear bud. Join us this week if you will for (an early) Midsummer's Shuffle Bored...

(OK, yea, I got nuthin'. But feel free however to chime in with your random five throughout the week...)

Nik Kershaw - Wouldn't It Be Good (Mp3)
Wire - Surgeon's Girl (Mp3)
English Beat - I Confess (Mp3)
The Fountainhead - Rhythm Method (Mp3)
Talk Talk - Dum Dum Girl (12" Mix) (Mp3)

Right On! Love Wouldn't It Be Good. I've a mp3 of an acoustic version he did just a few years ago, sounds great. Wonder if he kept his hair or uses as much gel... shamus

Well, I don't have them all in my head. When I started adding my random fives here, I had no mobile mp3 player, so I tapped the random function on the RealPlayer. And every track on that player has discographical details (some of which required some research). I now have a Zen mp3 player, and sometimes use that for the shuffle, and sometimes I use the RealPlayer. When I use the Zen, it provides all the information but the year, and I cross-reference the tracks for that. Maybe it's just me, but knowing where a track fits in historically enhances my pleasure. Cheers!

I love the shuffle bored! Thanks so much for a week of it. I want to say, I've been a good supporter of music and bought several bands that I heard on here: crowded house, ABC and the cars. I knew the cars, but listening to your selection on here got me to pick up an album. Thanks for what you do.
