I saw this on a friend's blog. Go to your iPod, hit shuffle and list the first ten songs that play. I don't actually have an mp3 player, but i have a play list on my computer so I shuffled that up and here are the first ten songs. It's kind of fun, and I think my list is much less nerdy than my actual playlist. I have a lot of nerdy folky stuff in reality.
1. I see the Lights by Lisa Loeb
I got into Lisa Loeb I think in high school. I like her voice and her songs are just catchy. She has a kids album out with Elizabeth Mitchell, Catch the Moon that I love.
2. Do you Remember by Jack Johnson
A Jack Johnson song that you don't hear on the radio. Our friend Jer introduced us to Jack Johnson before he hit the big time.
3. Summer Wages by Nanci Griffith
Of all the cd's I actually own, I have the most Nanci Griffith. I have been listening to her for as long as I can remember. My mom always blasted Nanci growing up. Tom and I went to a Nanci concert with my mom and sister before we were married in Deer Valley. I think he was embarrassed by our enthusiasm, but we sure had fun.
4. Get Rhythm by Johnny Cash
This is a great running song. I did have it on the mp3 player I used to get me through the marathon last year.
5. Lengthwise by Phish
Tom introduced me to this song and Phish when we were first wed. It has always been one of my faves. Sometimes I'll sing it to Tom when he gets out of bed and I sprawl myself over the whole bed.
6. Right in Time by Lucinda Williams
I love her raspy voice. I love almost all of her songs and albums.
7. Dashboard by Modest Mouse
This one is new to me. Tom downloaded it and I like it.
8. California Dreamin' by Guster
Guster is fun. This one is a super bad recording of the live cover , but fun nonetheless.9. Little Light by Jets to Brazil
10. Give a Little Bit by Supertramp
This is actually Goo goo dolls doing a cover of the Supertramp song, but the goo goo dolls are a bit lame. Although I did like them in high school.
