Do the shuffle

Last night Kim and I went to see Ray Lamontagne. Well, that's what we told people. Turns out, he was just opening for David Gray which was a little disappointing. I like David Gray, but I LOVE Ray. I posted on Facebook that we were going to see him and Meg texted me with "who is Ray Lamontagne". Sorry to call you out Meg! Anyway, It got me thinking about how I have the music tab that I add to often enough but that no one ever looks at. On the one hand I think I need to revamp my blog, and on the other I think I need to talk about music more in the main posts. One, because people like Meg need to be made aware of the amazing musicians out there like Ray. Two, because I love music and it makes me happy.

I think this went around as an email once and I remember finding it entertaining so I'm going to give it a go. I put my Ipod on shuffle and I am going to list the first ten songs that come up. This make me a little nervous because I have music on my Ipod that I would have listened to a very long time ago. It could get a little embarrassing. I mean, I loved PM Dawn back in the day, but Seth has made fun of me to no end for having it on my Ipod. Whatever...you be the judge:

1) Sin for a Sin - Miranda Lambert
2) Heartless - Kanye West
3) Up to the Mountain - Patty Griffin
4) Money Made You Mean - The Indigo Girls
5) Carry Me On My Way - James Taylor
6) Uninvited - Alanis Morissette
7) Say You Love Me - Fleetwood Mac
8) The Rooster - Big Boi
9) Slow Like Honey - Fiona Apple
10) Gossip in the Grain - Ray Lamontagne

Alright, that wasn't so bad! The only way this will work is if you comment and do it too. If you don't have your Ipod (or whatever music player) with you just tell me songs I would find if I took a peak at it. I won't judge...I am hoping to maybe be inspired to listen to something great that I haven't heard before.


  1. Hey- we saw Ray at the Fox last November....AMAZING! I'm betting he comes back around since he has the new album with the Pariah Dogs!
    Here's my list:

    Southern Cross- Crosby, Stills & Nash
    Situations- Jack Johnson
    Breathless- Corinne Bailey Rae
    Get Up Stand Up- Bob Marley & The Wailers
    A-Punk- Vampire Weekend
    It's My Life- No Doubt
    Photobooth- Death Cab for Cutie
    All Dressed In Love- Jennifer Hudson
    The Water- Feist
    Tush- ZZ Top

  2. OK, so I've never done the shuffle thing so thought I'd try it, so here's mine :)

    Shoulda Known Better - Kristen Hall
    Santa Claus Is Coming To Town - James Taylor
    I Want You Back - Jackson 5
    I Am - Bebo Norman

    OK, so I love Christmas music and I have to confess, this is actually the first 11 songs that came up. A Miley Cyrus song popped up but ONLY because I have an almost 8 year old little girl who likes her music. Promise!! I try to avoid listening to her at all costs :)
