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.
“Everything Is Fair” by A Tribe Called Quest (from The Low End Theory, 1991)
I don’t know if this cut stands up well on its own, but when listened to in the course of the record, it’s all sorts of hot. The Low End Theory is a record that just reminds me of summer.
“Village of the Sun” by The Mothers of Invention (from Roxy & Elsewhere, 1974)
Music is the best!
“Edge of the Blade” by Journey (from Frontiers, 1983)
Pretty standard, early ’80s AOR fare from the masters of the craft. I dig Schon’s guitar playing here.
“Good Ol’ Fashion Nightmare” by Matt & Kim (from Grand, 2009)
New school summertime jam!
“32 Pennies” by Warrant (from Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich, 1989)
I’d be embarrassed, but I dig this tune.
What’s on your shuffle today?
