Friday Five : ‘frī-(,)dā,-dē ‘fīv : On the sixth day of every week, I hit the shuffle button on my iTunes, then share the first five tracks and thought for each track. Sometimes there is a playlist involved, occasionally we’ll have a 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.
“Last Chance” by Maroon 5 (from Hands All Over, 2010)
I was severely underwhelmed by this record. Given its pedigree, you would expect more, but I found myself pondering that age-old question: “where’s the beef?”
“Severed Hand” by Pearl Jam (from Pearl Jam, 2006)
I listened to this record earlier this week and was reminded just how much I dig it.
“Welcome to the Club” by The Brothers Johnson (from Blast!, 1982)
Get down with the git down!
“Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nuthing ta F’ Wit” by Wu-Tang Clan (from Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers, 1993)
Form like Voltron!
“The Marrying Kind” by Prince (from Musicology, 2004)
This one is incomplete with out it’s funkier sister “If Eye Was the Man in Ur Life.” As a matter of face, I’m switching off the shuffle now.
What’s on your shuffle today?
