Shuffle Meme

Reading the title, a quizzical expression may overtake your face. It's fine, this expression is not common. A shuffle meme is (at least in this current phase) where one turns their iPod onto shuffle and lists the first 15 songs to play. I didn't invent this, nor come up with this on my own. Lab Rab tagged me with it (who, in turn, got it from LamedZayin, who got it from KrumasaBagel, who I'm suspecting started it), and now I continue it. Oh, and before I forget, I hereby tag the following of my fellow bloggers: Devora (of course, you lent me your iPod that one time), Arona, Esther, and SG (no, I don't have a reasonable explanation why they are all females).
Please do keep in mind that I have some albums on my iPod which have a good number of songs to which I don't listen (look for the asterisked songs). But when you have a lot of space on your iPod like I do, it doesn't matter (except when you're shuffling, d'oh!)
/On 23 May, I removed the titles of the songs and the artists/performers/composers of the songs -see my posting on music of that same date./

Similarly to Steg's sentiments on this topic, (aside from the huqot ha'akum concern) that this sort of thing can lead to skewed views on one's musical tastes.

Drew,
Thanks for the tag,
but when can I unfreeze?
I'm getting kind of tired stuck like this!

p.s. thanks for actually doubling my blog readership in the past 2 weeks! when do I get to be added to a blogroll?

good shabbos,
SG

SG,
Sure thing about the readership doubling! I will be adding you to my blogroll forthwith.
To get unstuck from the tag, you just have to list the first fifteen songs that play on your iPod or whichever mp3 playing device you have when you put it on "shuffle".

Hey Drew,

While I don't yet Ipod (hiding my face in shame) I've posted a list of favorite artists on my blog.(under "tag, you're it")

BTW, I'm happy you have health insurance! Now we can talk about your knee! Just see my receptionist..

p.s. thanks for the blogroll, it trippled my readership! (let me see, zero times three is still zero, right?)
