The Friday Five: October 21, 2011

Friday Five

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.

The Five:

Beyond the Invisible” by Enigma (from Le Roi est Mort, Vive le Roi!, 1996)

Much like the Gregorian Chant fad their first record inspired, I now look back at this and think, “what the hell were we all thinking?”

Roy Rogers” by Elton John (from Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, 1973)

Not my favorite Elton tune, but I can dig it.

True Colors” by Cyndi Lauper (from Now That’s What I Call the 80’s, Volume 2, 2009)

Like nails on a chalk board. Don’t get me wrong, I love Cyndi Lauper, but this song just grates on my nerves.

Normal Like You” by Everclear (from So Much for the Afterglow, 1997)

iTunes clearly doesn’t like me very much this morning.

Play Thang” by Jodeci (from Forever My Lady, 1991)

I was hoping for some redemption, but clearly I just need to put this week’s Friday Five to bed and go back to listening to the brilliant new Julian Velard record.

What’s on your shuffle today?
