Might be time to do a iPod check post to compare and contrast iPod music.And so here goes. I'm posting ten songs in a row that played on my iTunes at work on Tuesday, with an indulgence in the middle because I want to give my musician cousin some props. Do you think any of these would help either candidate's demographic?
First, Eno, from Another Green World:
Next, some straight up jazz from Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers from 1964:
Then, some guy from Hibbing:
And because I can, a cover version of the song by my cousin, who performs under the stage name Janet Planet:
Back to the original list -- next, Los Lobos:
Next, some classic 80s cheese:
Then, Ray Charles tackling the Beatles:
Next, a personal fave from Thelonious Monk:
Then, classic Stones from Exile on Main Street:
Next, some early Cure:
Finally, a song I got from a friend that is one of the funniest New Year's Eve songs ever, from an emo band called Dismemberment Plan, from about 1997 or thereabouts:
I would imagine that I'd have a hard time getting elected with that song selection, but there you go. Feel free to post some of yours in the comment section.
