Thursday jukebox

Set RhythmBox on "random", hit "forward", discard the horrible ones... note: if you don't see an album listed, I probably ripped it before Linux had CDDB-enabled rippers capable of filling in the album field in the mp3 headers.

  1. Arlo Guthrie, "Deportees"
  2. Mississippi Fred McDowell, "Soon One Mornin'"
  3. Townes Van Zandt, "Snake Mountain Blues" (Legend)
  4. The Cranberries, "Dreams" (Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?)
  5. Hole, "Reasons to be Beautiful"
  6. Air, "Cherry Blossom Girl" (Talkie Walkie)
  7. Cat Power, "Metal Heart" (Moon Pix)
  8. Tracy Chapman, "Subcity"
  9. Belle and Sebastian, "Like Dylan in the Movies"
  10. Suzanne Vega, "Blood Sings" (99.9F)
Oh, I also skipped dupes. Hit Townes and Tracy a couple of times. Interesting selection up there, from folk to blues to alt-country to shoe-gazer to grunge to electronica to alterna-cat (sorry, Chan is her own category) to "contemporary"...

Now for one more spin of the "Next" button:

  • Leonard Cohen, "Everybody Knows".
Hey Mimus, I promise that I did *not* rig my "next" button, that's what really came up when I hit "next"!

  1. I have no idea what you're talking about,but I like Arlo.


  2. And Emmylou is now officially older than dirt, but damn she can still sing...
