The shuffling first fifteen meme...

1) Turn on your MP3 player or music player on your computer.
2) Go to SHUFFLE songs mode.
3) Write down the first 15 songs that come up–song title and artist–NO editing/cheating, please.
  1. The boy with no name – Travis
  2. Are we alright? - Show of Hands
  3. Bring 'em all in - Mike Scott
  4. He never said - Martyn Joseph
  5. Blood red sky - Seth Lakeman
  6. Why does my heart feel so bad? - Moby
  7. Superhuman touch - Athlete
  8. I grieve - Peter Gabriel
  9. Black swan song - Athlete
  10. Also Sprach Zarathustra - 2001 Space Odyssey
  11. Chasing cars - Snow Patrol
  12. You (Live 2008) - After The Fire
  13. Somebody told me - The Killers
  14. '40' - U2
  15. Walking into battle with the Lord - Chumbawamba
I supposed I am slightly puzzled this list is relatively contemporary yet my overall library is substantially more varied Intriguing that over 50% are bands that have played at the Greenbelt Festival over the years...

Thanks for the tag Phil, if you haven't been tagged yet, go for it anyway (that's you, that is!).

i just did this myself yesterday, i think that perhaps we each got tagged by different folks for the same idea.

Can't be bad, two ATF tracks! Cheers for commenting historyguy...

Steve Hayes said...

I've only got one song on it at the moment -- been meaning to add others, but haven't got round to it.

The song is "39", by Queen.

Peter Banks said...

Nice one, Steve... take someone with a Mastermind specialist subject knowledge to know that song is a genuine Queen track!
