count, ten, 10-A

Ten random things: March 3

The first ten songs in my WinAmp playlist this morning:

  1. The Boy Least Likely To - Be Gentle With Me
  2. Ben Folds Five - Magic
  3. Otis Redding - Try a Little Tenderness
  4. Matthew Sweet - I've Been Waiting
  5. OK Go - Here It Goes Again
  6. Aimee Mann and Michael Penn - Two of Us
  7. Dewey Cox - Walk Hard
  8. Dandy Warhols - We Used to Be Friends
  9. Ben Folds Five - Army
  10. Bay City Rollers - I Only Want to Be With You

My usual excuse for posting a list like this is that I'm feeling lazy, or that I'm pressed for time. Today, however, I have an entirely different and much better reason: this was the topic of my very first list of ten random things, posted on this date four years ago. Four years! That's a pretty good run for something so pointless.

I should perhaps point out that while these were the first ten songs in my WinAmp playlist this morning, they were not, in fact, the first ten songs I listened to this morning. I only had time to listen to the first five before I had to leave for work. For the record, the next five songs I heard after "Here It Goes Again" were:

  • Journey - Who's Crying Now
  • Beach Boys - Kokomo
  • Phil Collins - Two Hearts
  • Pet Shop Boys - West End Girls
  • Georgia Satellites - Hippy Hippy Shake

Which just goes to show that I have better taste in music than the person who programmed the all-80s in-house music system at the mall. Bold words coming from a Bay City Rollers fan, but come on, Journey.
