Friday morning random 10 (on Friday for a change)

I was in the O.R. late yesterday and didn't have time to finish the main piece I had planed. Fortunately, I had a couple of short things previously written. Also, I haven't done this in a while; so I figured, what the heck? Basically, take iTunes (or your MP3 player of choice), set it to random or shuffle play, and then list the first 10 songs from your music library that it plays. This week's list was rather odd, at least as far as the different types of music mixed together.
  1. Arlo Guthrie, Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream
  2. AC/DC, Love Hungry Man
  3. The Clash, Look Here
  4. The Saints, (I'm) Stranded
  5. Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Man
  6. Simon & Garfunkel, Homeward Bound
  7. Red Hot Chili Peppers, Blood Sugar Sex Magik
  8. Paul Simon, Old
  9. Elton John, Too Many Tears
  10. The Who, Shakin' All Over
Hmmm. The transition between the Arlo Guthrie song and AC/DC was rather jarring. Otherwise, it seems rather heavy with older stuff. The Paul Simon song is appropriate though, given that I'm feeling a bit old right now...

My wife does something similar, but instead of listing the songs, she gives the first few lines of each song and asks her readers to guess the songs.

An example is here, and she still has 4 songs unguessed!
