Now Show Me Yours II

A while back, John Scalzi came up with a fun & useless little game. Hit "random" on iTunes or whatever MP3 software you use, then tell the world the first ten songs that came up.

I'm willing to go John one better.

Instead of randomizing, sort your entire library by how many times each song has played. This is easy to do on iTunes, but I'm not sure about other players. With my game, there's no hiding your bad taste behind the randomizer - the cream (or spoiled milk) will rise to the top. If you're willing to play, the whole world will know what you really like to play.

Here's my list:

Sex And Candy - Marcy Playground

Cryin' Shame - Lyle Lovett

Sleep All Day - Jason Mraz

Caramel - Suzanne Vega

Got To Be Real - Cheryl Lynn

The Killing Moon - Echo & The Bunnymen

Maybe Tomorrow - Stereophonics

Still The Same - Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band

Girlfriend - Matthew Sweet

Let's Live It Up - The Brian Setzer Orchestra

Nothing terribly embarrassing there, although I can't believe Marcy Playground got the #1 spot. And "Sleep All Day" at number three? Really? On the other hand, only one disco tune made the top ten, so I'm not doing too badly.

The next ten, just because:

Moondance - Van Morrison

Bohemian Like You - The Dandy Warhols

Strict Machine - Goldfrapp

Love Rollercoaster - Ohio Players

Gloria - Patti Smith

Josie - Steely Dan

When I Found You - Mel Torme & Buddy Rich

JoJo - Boz Scaggs

Suffragette City - David Bowie

Personal Jesus (Acoustic Mix) - Depeche Mode

No, I'm not embarrassed by the Boz Scaggs selection. I'm a big fan of the Boz, and always have been - although I have to admit to a little relief that "Georgia" is only in the Top 30.
