The Friday Five: June 5, 2009

I am serious ... and don't call me 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: It’s a busy day here in the Northeast but The Five is still playing in the background… here’s what is spinning with some twitter-sized thoughts:

Frente! – “Labour of Love” (from Labour of Love)

Aussie acoustic-pop act better known 4 their intimate cover of New Order‘s “Bizarre Love Triangle”. I actually like this record quite a bit.

Metallica – “Battery” (from Master of Puppets)

& now 4 something cmpletly difft! ive 2 admit that I dont listen 2 enough classic Metallica. I hold their present against their past glory.

ALL – “Hot Rod Lincon” (from Allroy’s Revenge)

Punk tribute to the Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen classic.

Prince – “The Arms of Orion (feat. Sheena Easton)” (from Batman)

Mama said if you ain’t got nuthin’ nice to say don’t say nuthin’ at all.

Johnny Cash – “A Boy Named Sue (live)” (from The Legend of Johnny Cash)

This 1 brings back memories of sitting the back of the family station wagon. Johnny, Waylon, Willie & the boys were always the soundtrack.

What’s keeping your day rolling?
