What’s your musical horoscope? (Put your player on shuffle and write down the first 10 songs that come up.)
Inspired by Stephanie.
1.) “Verb: That’s What’s Happening,” by Moby (from Schoolhouse Rock! Rocks);
2.) “Can’t Get Enough of Your Love, Babe,” by Barry White (from Pure Disco 2);
3.) “Be Near Me,” by ABC (from Absolutely ABC: The Best of ABC);
4.) “Instinction,” by Spandau Ballet (from The Singles Collection) [wow, right on the heels of ABC! was I a New Romantic or what?];
5.) “Withering Heights,” by Ryan Adams & the Cardinals (from Jacksonville City Nights);
6.) “Easy Silence,” by the Dixie Chicks (from Taking the Long Way);
7.) “Hobo,” by Patterson Hood (from Killers and Stars) [the iPod’s on a little country music jag, I guess];
8.) “Question!,” by System of a Down (from Mezmerize) [surprised?];
9.) “Rainy Day Woman,” by Waylon Jennings (from RCA Country Legends, Vol. 1) [the System of a Down was just an interlude from the country music?]; and
10.) “Wisteria,” by Richard Shindell (from Somewhere Near Paterson) [I’ve blogged about Shindell, one of my favorite folk artists, here and here].
P.S. I can’t imagine why the QOTD thinks of this as a “horoscope.”
P.P.S. This was the QOTD several months ago. And Waylon Jennings, including “Rainy Day Woman,” played a big role in that “horoscope,” too. Bizarre. I swear there’s not that much Waylon on my iPod. What’s the world trying to tell me?
