Friday Random Ten

I’ve never done this before, but I figure, as long as I’m here, might as well jump on the cool weekly things that Lauren does… so here goes. But let me give a little disclaimer: I am not cool. Seriously. Right now, my two favorite songs are “Lonely” by Akon and the new Mariah Carey ballad. I don’t listen to cool bands that you’ve never heard of. In fact, I probably listen to the exact same music as your dad, if, in addition to dad music like Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones, your dad also listens to a lot of Ani Difranco and really mainstream hip-hop. So please, don’t think less of me when my ten random songs are totally lame… I like them, but as stated, I am totally uncool.

1. Missy Elliot – I’m Really Hot
2. Jay-Z and Pharell – Frontin’
3. Ben Harper – In Your Eyes (live acoustic)
4. Ani Difranco and Bob Dylan – Most of the Time
5. Mindy Smith – One Moment More
6. Tom Petty – You Got Lucky
7. John Legend – Ordinary People
8. Rolling Stones – The Last Time
9. Tori Amos – Precious Things
10. Ray LaMontagne – Jolene

So this serves as pretty clear evidence that I need to update my music collection. Dang.

    This is my first entry, too. If any one thinks it isn’t cool, it’s because I don’t have a large selection on my computer…not because I’m not cool or anything…

    1) NOFX – American Errorist
    2) Sublime- April 29, 1992 [Miami] Leary
    3) Dvorak- Symphony no 9, Largo
    4) Sublime- Chica me tipo
    5) Alice in Chains- Would?
    6) Mindless Self Indulgence- Bite your rhymes
    7) Robert Johnson- Sweet Home Chicago
    8) Tool- Parabol
    9) Radiohead- Just
    10)RZA- Dead birds

    The dirty little secret of music nerds and musicians is we are just as dorky as everyone else.

    Hey – I think you got great taste. Jay-Z and other mainstream hip hop artists are successful because they’re incredibly talented.

    And Bob Dylan? You cannot go wrong with Bob Dylan, ever.

    I just want to know: where can I find that Difranco/Dylan collaboration? ‘Most of Time’ is a great song, and so perfectly placed in the movie ‘High Fidelity.’
