Copycat ipod Game

I've had an itunes gift card sitting on my desk for a few weeks now. I get so overwhelmed with itunes gift cards because there are just too many options and I can't decide what I want the most. I've narrowed it down to a few options, which are as follows:

1. The Stranger, Billy Joel. This is my favorite Billy Joel record and I actually own it but cannot find it so I’m thinking of re-buying it on itunes.
2. The Trumpet Child, Over the Rhine. Karen's voice kills me and I don't own this most recent record yet.
3. Cannons- Phil Wickham. I'm intrigued by Phil's music and have heard great things about him.

In my quest to find out more about Phil Wickham, I came across a game he played with his bloggers and I liked the idea so much I had to copy him! (Sorry Phil, if it makes you feel better, your record won and I’m listening to it right now)

The game is to put your ipod on shuffle and post the first 10 songs that it plays. Here are mine:

1. Kathleen Edwards- Back To Me
2. Julie Miller- Strange Lover
3. Brandi Carlile- Sixty Years On (live)
4. Lori McKenna- Mars
5. Feist- The Park
6. Sting- Brand New Day
7. Ray Charles- Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
8. Indigo Girls- Jonas and Ezekial
9. Weezer- Buddy Holly
10. Jonatha Brooke & The Story- Charming

If you don't have an ipod or something that "shuffles", than you can post what records you would buy with a gift card to a record store. Remember record stores? Wait... remember CD's? You know, those little silver discs that magically played music when inserted into a "Boom Box". Anybody??? :)

Anyway, play if you want to, I'm just curious to see A. if anyone is reading this and B. what you listen to

JB said...

never saw Crowder and Wickham do this, so its new to me...hehehe

this should be interesting with an 80gig

1) Celebration-Tom Jones (I couldnt resist buying this cheesy remake at some point in the past, and yes its a cover of the Kool and the Gang song)

2) Bicycle Race-Queen (not their best song, but fun none the less)

3) Don't Talk to Strangers-Rick Springfield (Pure 80's cheese, does my taste in music really seem as weird as i think it does right now?)

4) The Thrill Is Gone- BB King (I gotta see this guy live before one of us dies)

5) Come to Jesus-Mindy Smith (pure wonderfulness)

6) Monday Night-The Pool Boys (Another artist who supports my theory that the best music isnt on labels these days)

7)Folsom Prison Blues - Johnny Cash (everyone's gotta have some Johnny on their ipod, should be a law or something)

8)My Humps-Alanis Morissette (Very odd cover of Black Eyed Peas)

9)Rebel Yell-Billy Idol (pure 80's gold!)

10) Theme from the Great Space Coaster (How did THIS get on here...seriously, i dont remember even hearing this since i watched it as a child.....ok....)

since that last one was so odd, let's go with a 10A...

10A)White and Nerdy-Weird Al (maybe i shoulda just stayed with the Space Coaster....LOL)

ok..note to self, no doing that again, i wind up scaring myself...

Alli Rogers said...

wow, JB gets the award for most eclectic! Mine surprised me as well, there were a few records that popped up that I forgot I even owned. That's the one bad thing about digital music, unless you're looking for it, you forget you have it! I do anyway... which is probably why I tend to listen to the same 10 records over and over again.

The Great Space Coaster, huh? I'll have to check that one out. :)

Brett said...

4) Good Vibrations - Beach Boys
