I spent a few more hours putting music on the ipod last night. Melissa Etheridge and the Indigo Girls have been loaded and all is right with the world. Well, maybe not, but I feel better. Poor TJ has been having issues getting her laptop to connect to our server. After a couple hours of working on it, she figured out the issue and now can finally have access to the hundreds of songs housed there. Of course, by the time she was done fixing her connection, she was too tired to actually load any music.
My shuffle today wasnâ€™t too shuffled. But after the first five songs, it mixed it up a bit more.
1. Walk on Water â€“ Aerosmith. I donâ€™t know if Iâ€™ve heard this song before, but I canâ€™t be sure since many of their songs sound the same.
2.Â Same Old Song and Dance â€“ Aerosmith. Ok, Iâ€™ve got more than 1400 songsÂ on this think and I checked, itâ€™s on shuffle songs. I like this one, though. In general, I prefer old Aerosmith to their newer stuff. Well, mostly.
3. Ambush in the Night â€“ Bob Marley & The Wailers. Iâ€™ll have to double check but I think Iâ€™ve had a Bob Marley song everyday. Iâ€™m not complaining. There are very few artists that make me feel better than Bob. And this is a great song.
4. Three Little Birds â€“ Bob Marley & The Wailers. Ok, so my ipod knows what it wants to hear this morning. This is an upbeat, feel good song. And now Iâ€™m upbeat and feel good.
5. Pimpf â€“ Depeche Mode. What a great album! This takes me back â€“ ah, teen angst and depression. And what would those things be without very dark music? No nearly as angst-filled or depressing, of course. There are no discernable lyrics to this song â€“ at least not that I can tell â€“ but the music and chanting is intense. And then thereâ€™s the miscellaneous sounds after a few seconds of silence. And then another 20 seconds or so of additional silence to finish it off.
