For today’s Ten on Tuesday, I have asked everyone to hit “shuffle all” and list the first 10 songs that play on their iPod or whatever device they use for music. I have to confess here, though, that my list is actually from November 24th. I had thought of this prompt and was going to use it for a blog post during NaBloPoMo – I had written the list and filed it away – put it in the freezer, as Vicki used to say, but then I never actually finished it and posted it. So I’m doing that today, partly because it’s already done but also because any list I create right now is going to be all Christmas music since that’s all that is on my iPhone at the moment. (My storage is full and I had to rotate off all of my other playlists to fit my Christmas stuff on there. There’s a solution to this problem arriving by the end of the week, though.) And so, on a Monday in November, these are the 10 songs I listened to on my way to work.
- Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush
- Try to Remember by Ed Ames
- The Long & Winding Road by The Beatles
- I’m Shipping Up to Boston by Dropkick Murphys
- Lawyers, Guns & Money by Warren Zevon
- Jolly Mon Sing by Jimmy Buffett
- Old Fashioned Love Song by Three Dog Night
- Eighteen Wheels & A Dozen Roses by Kathy Mattea
- Halo by Beyonce
- All That I Want for Christmas by The Rescues
It’s an eclectic list, that’s for sure, but any list from my music is going to be. I listen to oldies and 80s and schmaltzy stuff that my parents liked. I listen to rock ‘n roll and country and folk. And I love it all! I think it’s very appropriate that the last song of the 10 is a Christmas one. Yes, I started listening in November. Not to all of it and only in the car but that one by The Rescues is from a Grey’s Anatomy episode (season 6, episode 10 if you want to know) and it’s a real favorite of mine.
