The Friday Five: July 3, 2009

Be Like Dad, Keep Shuffle.

Friday Five : ˈfrī-(ˌ)dā,-dē ˈfīv : On the sixth day of every week I hit the shuffle button on my iTunes and share my five and drop a little knowledge and insight for each track. Sometimes there is a playlist involved, sometimes there isn’t. Sometimes we have guest, but most of the time it’s just me. The rest is up to you, our friends and readers! Fire up your media player of choice and share the first five random track of your shuffle in the comments.

The Five:

Editor’s Note: After a 4 day work week that felt more like 7 it’s time to unwind, but before I start my holiday weekend I’ve got a quick shuffle to share. Have a safe and great Independence Day weekend.

Harvey Danger – “Flagpole Sitta” (from Where Have All the Merrymakers Gone?, 1997)

The Gaslight Anthem – “Great Expectations” (mp3) (from The ’59 Sound, 2008)

Van Halen – “Jamie’s Cryin'” (from Van Halen, 1978)

Prince – “Controversy” (from Controversy, 1981)

Bobby Brown – “Roni” (mp3) (from Dance! … Ya Know It, 1989)

What tunes are getting you started today?
