My Music

Three posts in a row. Pretty good, huh? Actually, these past two were pre-written. I feel guilty when I don't post knowing both my readers are anxiously anticipating my next incredible witicism (did that come across as sarcastic?).

Anyway, I'm thinking of paring down my music on my phone. Lately, I've been skipping a number of songs. I'm not sure why, sometimes I'm just not in the mood for certain songs. And if I do it time and again, why is it on there?

Here's my next ten per the shuffle feature:

1. Lonely is the Night -- Billy Squier. I could see myself skipping that one time and again.
2. Just the Way You Are - Billy Joel. I have been skipping some of the BJ songs, even though I'm a huge fan and have most of his library loaded up. But that's never one of him. Someday I should post about what a genius BJ really is.
3. Get Naked - Methods of Mayhem. M of M is Tommy Lee's band and this is the only song I know. Its filthy but for some reason I find it fun. Even if it can't be listened to in mixed (any) company.
4. Get Stoned - Hinder. Love this band but somebody was done wrong. They have a lot of anger in their songs, but in a whimsical way, if that's possible.
5. Stairway to Heaven - Pat Boone. Did you read far enough to see Pat Boone. He did an entire album of hard rock/heavy metal in his own style/voice. I think its hysterical and its actually quite good music, considering a big band is playing rock. I thought my wife would think so too, but she thinks I'm nuts for spending the money and doesn't get it at all. We can't connect on everything I guess.
6. Breaking Inside - Shinedown. Another band I'm crazy about as I think I've mentioned in past posts.
7. Never Again - Nickelback. Kind of a fluff band, but fun and catchy.
8. No Leaf Clover - Metallica. This particular version is off the S&M album wherein they recorded with the San Fransisco Philharmonic Orchestra. Plenty of Metallica fans think they sold out doing a concert with and orchestra but I think its really cool. Heavy metal with horns and violas, cellos, violins etc. is really cool I think. I'm always a big fan of different versions of stuff I already like (see Pat Boone above).
9. I Am The Bulldog. Kid Rock. I'm starting to think I'm losing interest in KR. I used to like his stuff a ton, but I've been skipping it lately.
10. World of Fantasy - Triumph. Wow, this is kind of old school '80's rock. Triumph had a great 5 year run or so, but ended up on the lower rung of Canadian Rock Trios.

There's my 10. I'm always curious about what comes up. Your opinions?

It sounds a lot like what is on my ipod. Except for the Triumph.

Funny, a lot of people aren't familiar with Triumph but they did have a bunch of hits in the early '80s. Honest.

I love triumph. I wake up to the cd every single day since college.

Are you kidding me? Really? That's so funny! Now you need to tell me your favorite song.
