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.
“A-Punk” by Vampire Weekend (from Vampire Weekend, 2007)
Opps! Somebody forgot to hit shuffle before hitting play! I imagine that this is the first song in many folks library —sorted by track, that is. So let’s add that to the sharing today: if you sort your library by song name, what is the first track?
“Right on Time” by The Brothers Johnson (from Right on Time, 1977)
Hot damn, if I don’t love me some Brothers Johnson. Funkier than Dave LIfton’s gym socks, the one-two combo of Louis’ monster bass lines, and George’s fluid guitar work absolutely kills.
“Running With the Night” by Lionel Richie (from The Definitive Collection, 2003)
I can’t listen to this without the video:
“Cold as Ice” by Foreigner (from The Very Best…and Beyond, 1992)
Matt Wardlaw has ruined Foreigner for me.
“Out 4000” by Rappin’ 4-Tay (from Don’t Fight the Feelin’, 1994)
I rarely rate tunes with one star. This is a one-star tune.
What’s on your shuffle today?
