Top 5 on my iPOD (shuffle)

Sarah Kim asks what 5 songs get the heaviest play on your iPOD* these days. If you are reading this, consider yourself....yep...tagged. Here is my list:

1. Where Is My Mind? Pixies
2. Fuck the Valley Fudge Grandaddy
3. Rebellion (Lies) Arcade Fire
4. "40" U2
5a. The Cigarette Girl from the Future Beauty Pill
5b. Type Slowly Pavement**

* Please play along even if you don't have an iPOD. Heavy CD rotation is just as good. Hell, vinyl's good, too (see comments for my 5 vinyl).
** New addition

Ooooh, vinyl! Yeah, you definitely have cooler taste than me.

Vinyl? Vinyl?

Yeah, Lee is definitely way cooler than me.

Okay, I'll go post my top 5 now....

Lee Herrick said...

Yeah, I love records. I don't know if it makes me cool (or just old!) but I kept some from years ago. I also used to have a big 45 collection..."singles" like "Centerfold" by the J. Geils Band and "Tainted Love" by Soft Cell. I think I sold a lot of them at a garge sale when I was about twelve.

Lyle Daggett said...

1. Joni Mitchell, "Shadows and Light" (the live version, backed up by The Persuasions)
2. Mason Williams, "Classical Gas"
3. Indigo Girls, "Closer to Fine"
4. Taj Mahal, "Take a Giant Step"
5. Pink Martini, "Let's Never Stop Falling in Love"
