This week was almost the first Five-less week since the inception of the shuffle happy column. I’m a bit under the weather this week and am saving up my energy to go and see Jason Mraz tonight. Rather than cancel the Five, here’s a quick five (with two downloadable tracks this week!) as I’m resting up.
For those who have not joined in the Five, here’s how it works: … I hit the shuffle button on my iTunes and share my five with a bit of insight for each track.
Then it’s your turn! Just share the first five random track of your shuffle in the comments and see what your fellow readers are listening to as well.
Here are this week’s tracks:
1. The Beach Boys – Little Deuce Coup (from The Platinum Collection)
Not my favorite
2. Donny Hathaway – Misty (from Everything Is Everything)
A torch song from the master, I love everything about this record.
3. Apollonia 6 – Sex Shooter (mp3) (from Apollonia 6)
Let’s see some action, let’s have some asses wiggling, I want some perfection. Whawhak!
4. Dink – Green Mind (mp3) (from Dink)
I used to spin this one weekly as part of my “Alternative Night” DJ set.
5. Van Halen – Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love (from Van Halen)
One of the most recognizable riffs in the history of Rock n’ Roll.
So what’s making you feel better this week?
