The Friday Five: October 14, 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:

“Come See About Me” by Tedeschi Trucks Band (from Revelator, 2011)

“Mary Ann” by Bob Dylan (from Dylan, 1973)

“Get Up to Get Down” by Brass Construction (from Phat Trax: The Best of Old School, Volume 1, 1997)

“(He’s) Seventeen” by The Supremes (from The Complete Motown Singles, Volume 2: 1962, 2005)

“Nasty” by Janet Jackson (from Control, 1986)

What’s on your shuffle today?

The Friday Five: May 22, 2009

For those who have not joined in the Friday Five here is all you need to know; each Friday 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 more the merrier!

The Five:

Last week my father-in-law commented that my shuffle seems to ignore the music of his generation, which I do actually have quite a bit of thanks to the “Oldies but Goodies” collection, so Sal… this one is for you…

Bob & Earl – “Harlem Shuffle” (from Oldies but Goodies, Volume 5)

For a moment I thought that I had hit the wrong playlist… I do quite like The Rolling Stones version of this tune.

The Supremes – “Where Did Our Love Go” (from Oldies but Goodies, Volume 8)

Classic. Classic. Classic.

Leslie Gore – “It’s My Party” (from Oldies but Goodies, Volume 3)

My least favorite tune out of the five.

Dion – “Runaround Sue” (from Oldies but Goodies, Volume 7)

Truthfully, this is one of my favorite songs ever. It’s downright infectious and you will be singing it in your head for days on end.

The Newbeats – “Bread and Butter” (from Oldies but Goodies, Volume 2)

Another ear-worm that will stick in your head for days on end.

What’s on deck for your holiday weekend?
