My iPod Has Issues – Part 2

15 Jan

I have had a blog post idea running through my mind all day. But, it late on Saturday night, and I just got in from a night on the town. I am tired and a little buzzed but still feel the need to post. Does that mean I am addicted to blogging now? I reckon there are worse things to be addicted to. At any rate, I am going to put my posting idea on hold and take the lazy blogger’s way out by building on an older post.

A while back, I wrote about how everyone hates my iPod. They think the music is weird and old and don’t understand how I could listen to it all of the time. A common question is, “How do you know what the new music is if you keep listening to this crap?” And, I understand the question. I used to think the very same thing about my parents. How could they listen to that crap all of the time?

I must admit that my girlfriend and her daughter have introduced me to some cool stuff. There is a lot of great music being created these days. But, I still don’t think it compares to my random playlist. In the earlier post, I put my iPod on random and listed the first twenty that popped up. Let’s see what pops up this time and see if you like the list or think my iPod has issues.

1. “Heart of Gold” by Neil Young

2. “Gloria” by Them

3. “Dang Me” by Roger Miller

4. “Happy Anniversary” by Little River Band

5. “Edge of Seventeen” by Stevie Nicks

6. “I Love” by Tom T. Hall

7. “Principles of Lust” by Enigma

8. “Boom Boom” by John Lee Hooker

9. “Good Times” by INXS and Jimmy Barnes

10. “I’m Waiting for the Man” by The Velvet Underground

11. “Voodoo Child” by Jimi Hendrix

12. “Walk This Way” by Run DMC

13. “Who Made Who” by AC/DC

14. “Popcorn” by Hot Butter

15. “19th Nervous Breakdown” by The Rolling Stones

16. “Betty Lou’s Got A New Pair Of Shoes” by John Cafferty and The Beaver Brown Band

17. “Cross the Brazos at Waco” by Billy Walker

18. “You Go to My Head” by Mary Stallings

19. “In Bloom” by Nirvana

20. “Good Time in London” by Big Mama Thornton

Is that weird or what?
