Tune In Tuesday
The theme for May is Random Playlist: “Open up your music library and pick a song at random from your collection to feature with us. The choice can be as eclectic as you want it to be! Share one song, or share a couple songs. Feature your random mixes with us all month long.”
My iTunes is a hot mess. Don’t get me wrong — it’s organized. I am a librarian, after all. But my musical taste is all over the map. Hitting shuffle usually results in lots of classical music. So here’s what happened when I hit shuffle this time:
1.) “Salvator Mundi” by Thomas Tallis
I listen to classical quite a bit because I was a total band nerd in high school. Can’t say this one has shown up on any of my favorite classical playlists, but it grew on me as I listened to it for this post. Also discovered it was in an episode of The Tudors. Maybe I should watch that show.
2.) “Face Down” by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
Reminds me of spring 2007, when I got this song on a mixed CD from a friend. Mixed CDs from friends are the reasons I listen to most of the stuff I currently love .
3.) “Back for Good” by Take That
Whoa…talk about a 90′s throwback. I definitely remember this one from 1995. However, I didn’t realize Take That included a young Robbie Williams. Definitely worth watching if you’re a 90′s child. I had to listen twice.
4.) “Mr. Brightside” by The Killers
I sang this in my car like nobody’s business during the summer of 2005. Now I just scoff because they just sing the same exact thing twice. Guess a 90 second song wasn’t enough, so they had to double it?
5.) “Come Undone” by Duran Duran
Maybe one of my favorite songs of all time, I’ve loved it since I was in 3rd grade. I’m glad this one showed up on my 5-song shuffle.
Recognize anything? Love ‘em? Hate ‘em? I was surprised by this list. In the true spirit of the Random Playlist theme, it really is random. What’s the most random song in your collection?
