I stumbled across a link to my old blogger page and re-read some of my old posts. It made me realize that, usually, I had fun doing the daily shuffle. It was a way for me to post on a, well, semi-regular basis and that made LaRaine a little happy. And it gave me a chance to ramble on about anything that caught my train of thought at that moment.
The shuffle was also a way for my friends and family to share what they’re listening to. Although it was mostly me and Beth F. we had fun with it. And I sort of miss that banter with her. When we’re together in the same room, we don’t talk much but get us going with chat or cross-posting on each other’s blog – whoo – look out! I’m like that with lots of people. I just communicate so much better, with so much more ease, when it’s typing and not speaking. I really don’t know why and I don’t want to think that hard about it right now. I have dinner to make and a very tired son to feed and put to bed.
So, without further ado, here is my shuffle for the day.
- Un Poco Loco – Budd Powell – Blue Note: A Story of (something I couldn’t see on my iPod screen – if you really want to know, email me and I’ll find it for you.) This song is that wild, jam session sort of jazz. I’m not in the mode for this right now. I think I feel a seizure coming on. Had to fast forward past the last minute.
- A Message – Coldplay – X&Y. I heard a new single from their new album this morning on Radio Milwaukee (88.9 and the best, most eclectic station in town.) Mr. Gwynnth Paltrow describes Coldplay’s music as really hard soft rock. This song is nice. That’s all I got for it right now.
- Hypnotized – Fleetwood Mac – 18 Rock Classics. Old Fleetwood Mac. When I think of this band, I think of Stevie Nicks. I wouldn’t even know that this was Fleetwood Mac had I not looked. Good but not one of my favorites by any means.
- Chickenman – Indigo Girls – Rites of Passage. I do like this song. I don’t know who the chickenman is but I may google it. Or if you know, you could just post it in the comments so we’ll all know. This is an Amy Ray song so I like it better than some others. Emily Sailers’ songs tend to be more sappy & Amy’s are generally political or offer some sort of social critique. And TJ mostly hates them all. “Thanks Y’all!”
- Everybody’s Everything – Santana – Greatest Hits. Is this song from the late 60’s or early 70’s? The big horn sounds and organ make me feel like putting on a large, colorful, african print shirt, a bandana over my big, permed, white-girl ‘fro, and spark one up while dancing barefoot in the street.
