10 Random Songs From Your Music Playlist

Sat Jul 10, 2010 11:33 am

So, a bit similar to the "what are you listening to" thread, but with a bit of a twist.

If you can, put all the songs you have on your computer/mp3player/ipod etc, on random/shuffle, and list the 10 first songs it plays.

Be honest now, and post the first 10 songs it actually selects, and no cheating by ignoring the embarrasing ones you'd rather not want to share.  

Should give an interesting insight into what music we all listen to (or at least have)...

My 10:

1) Tool - Pushit (live) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d1pCAiows6E
2) Jorn - Sunset station http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0-kGt3ob-c
3) DJ Tiesto - HH Planetary http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbTe0pEPU_E
4) Finntroll - Tomhet och tystnad http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xCWQ98G-WQQ
5) Windir - The beginning http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUM-nKNLfFE
6) After Forever - Forlorn hope http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SpRJhTd7d0I
7) Dire Straits - Planet of New Orleans http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lJdPSahN-4
8) Ayreon - Cosmic fusion http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcziHiena4E
9) After Forever - The key http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJQyNpLOyQA
10) Linkin Park - Points of authority http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUyGziAjES4

There we go. Not too pleased with 3 and 10 as they are songs I don't listen to anymore. Maybe 10 years ago...
Also odd that out of the 5000 songs to choose from, it picked 2 of the 13 songs from the After Forever album Deceipher.
Oh well, over all not a bad result.

2. The National - Apartment Story
3. Silverchair - Waiting All Day
4. Francoiz Breut - Vingt A Trente Mille Jours
5. Sharon Jones And The Dap-Kings - Your Thing Is A Drag
6. The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - Contender

The only artist on that list that I listen to regularly is The National. An otherwise surprising list, even to myself.

I had to download that song for a video project I was working on, so it comes on every now and then when I listen to my music at random. Always takes me by surprise.
