OK, I usually don’t do these things, but when I saw Geoff’s list (and his request of me) I was intrigued by what might show up.

Here’s what you do:

  1. Turn on your favourite media player and turn your shuffle feature on.
  2. Hit “play” and keep track of the next 10 songs that come up. (If you have iTunes, you can make a smart playlist that will automatically list your most recently played selections.)
  3. Post your 10 shuffled songs, along with these instructions. You are not allowed to lie, omit tracks or otherwise try to make your musical taste seem hipper than it actually is.
  4. Tag five people on your friends list to do the same.

My random ten:

  1. Wall Of Voodoo | “Mexican Radio” | Call Of The West
  2. Beastie Boys | “Brass Monkey” | Licensed To Ill (appropriate, given that Geoff and I listened to this in high school)
  3. Joe Satriani | “Hill Of The Skull” | Surfing With The Alien
  4. I Mother Earth | “Levitate” | Dig
  5. Yes | “Everydays” | YesYears (out of print; originally on Time And A Word)
  6. John Wesley | “Star” | Shiver
  7. Extreme | “Who Cares” | III Sides To Every Story
  8. Porcupine Tree | “The Moon Touches Your Shoulder” | The Sky Moves Sideways
  9. Platypus | “I Need You” | Ice Cycles
  10. Led Zeppelin | “Tea For One” | Presence
