Sorry, (kinda) but after my ear/brain operation (probably only an ear operation but ear/brain sounds so much more dangerous, and koool) thought I'd update my blog the easiest way possible.
These were the rules:
1. Put your iPod... or iTunes, Windows Media Player, etc. on shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. Write that song name down no matter how stupid it sounds.
4. Tag at least 10 friends (make me #11 so I can see your results).
5. Everyone tagged does the same thing.
6. at least 8 of those people will hate you for it if you are over the age of 15.
My rule is that if you have the time to actually do this, you don't need to answer the questions, I'm just interested in seeing a list of the first 25 songs that pop up on your music player of choice when playing on a random setting. Then I will go in search of the cool music that you guys have that I do not have.

Play along! I was disappointed no 12 tone stuff, no ambient stuff, no African, no jazz came up, and what's with both Wilco and Leonard Cohen (though I can't complain about that one) coming up twice?
Oh, and I highly recommend the Judee Sill. Beautiful song.
