Here’s a challenge for you. Switch your favorite music player to the ‘random’ or ‘shuffle’ mode then reveal the first ten random tunes your player picks. Don’t try and be cool by omitting the embarrassing ‘big hair’ rock ballads or cheesy pop you have! Just do it once and leave the result in the comments.

I currently have 6884 songs on my iPod which amounts to nearly twenty one and a half days of music. So with such an extensive selection to pick from I’m nervous that iTunes could really show me up here… but here goes!

  1. Low Sun – Chicane
  2. Bullet Proof… I Wish I Was – Radiohead
  3. The Sun Rising – Beloved
  4. America, Fuck Yeah – Team America
  5. Sometimes You Can’t Make It On Your Own – U2
  6. Untitled 6 – Sigur Rós
  7. Always The Last To Know – Del Amitri
  8. Don’t Mess With My Man – Booty Luv
  9. Smells like Teen Spirit – Nirvana
  10. Seven Colours (After the rain comes the sun) – Lost Witness

Phew, I think I escaped pretty much unscathed there. I was worried that Paula Abdul, of 5 Star might have appeared then I would have felt obliged to explain there presence in my music collection.

So, what are you random 10 tunes?

What’s your signature sound?
Forgiven but not forgotten
I’m glad I was there
U who?
