30 Songs [updated]

George from The Nevermind Aesthetic didn’t tag me for this, but I did it anyway because I was curious.

Instructions...if you're interested:
1. Turn on whatever MP3 player you possess.
2. Go to SHUFFLE songs mode.
3. Write down the first 30 songs or more that come up--song title and artist.
4. NO editing/cheating, please. Write them order.
5. Choose 25 (or so) people to be tagged...or not. 
So here goes:

  4. These lists are always fun if only as ways to find stuff to add to your iPod or iTunes library.

    PV has been on a Facebook lists' run of late. Liked the beers and the dream festival musical lineup as well!

  5. why the fuck are you listing to so much lefty shit?

    I think I counted precisely 4 non-left tracks on PC's list.

    Where at least is the collected works of Bob Roberts?

  6. It's getting near time to just start deleting Anonymous comments, I"m thinking. There's no value in them.

    This nonsense above is just another example.

  7. Oh really. Well lets see - if Laborite Unionists over at the Standard were listening to Wagner and Bruckner and Beethoven then we'd have a very legitimate cause for complaint.
    Of course they're not, they're off with Bob Dylan and Bill Bragg. Well I'm pleased no Bragg made either list - but let's face it: most of it is the Internationale with a drum kit.

  8. Still not sure I get your point, anonymous, but let me make three.

    1. This is s bit of fun, showing random (sometimes little played) songs of one's MP3 player. That's all it is.
    2. Musical values aren't political. Fact is, even The Internationale had a great tune. :-)
    3. If Labourite Unionists over at the Standard were listening to Wagner and Bruckner and Beethoven, then I'm immediately embrace them as comrades. ;-P

  9. What the cock? Mr. Nony Mouse... are you saying that art can only be created by people who have the same values as you? What a depressing viewpoint.
