Music Shuffle Meme

To make this the third successive meme in 3 days, here’s one from TimZilla. Firstly, the instructions:

  1. Open up the music player on your computer.
  2. Set it to play your entire music collection.
  3. Hit the “shuffle” command.
  4. Tell us the title of the next ten songs that show up (with their musicians), no matter how embarrassing. That’s right, no skipping that Carpenters tune that will totally destroy your hip credibility. It’s time for total musical honesty.
  5. Write it up in your blog or journal and link back to at least a couple of the other sites where you saw this.
  6. If you get the same artist twice, you may skip the second (or third, or etc.) occurances. You don’t have to, but since randomness could mean you end up with a list of ten song with five artists, you can if you’d like.

And here’s the 10 that iTunes gave to me:

  1. ATB feat. The Wild Strawberries – Let U Go
  2. PJ & Duncan AKA – U Krazy Katz (Clock Remix)
  3. Kelly Llorenna – Tell It To My Heart
  4. 4 Strings – Let It Rain
  5. Alison Limerick – Where Love Lives (Northstarz Remix)
  6. W.I.P. feat. Emmie – I Won’t Let You Down (Angelic Remix)
  7. Push – Strange World 2000
  8. The Sunclub – Splash
  9. Perpetuous Dreamer – The Sound Of Goodbye (Above & Beyond Remix)
  10. Phatts & Small – Turn Around

It’s not wholely indicative of my collection but I do have a lot of dance music. And before you grill me about #2, my defence is that it’s a good rave tune.


  1. Oh dear, I feel totally out of the musical loop now as I haven’t heard of a single one of those artists.

  2. 1. Erykah Badu – Bag Lady
    2. Christina Aguilera – Dirrty
    3. J-Lo – Play
    4. Pink – Waiting for Love
    5. J-Lo – Waiting for Tonight
    6. Faith Hill – The way you love me
    7. All Saints – Dreams
    8. Joe – I want a girl like you
    9. Mr Mister – Broken Wings
    10. Atomic Kitten – Always Be My Baby

  3. Good idea, so for fun I’ll post my list.
    01. Air – Cherry Blossom Girl (Talkie Walkie)
    02. The Rolling Stones – It’s only Rock ‘n Roll (It’s only Rock ‘n Roll)
    03. The Beatles – Nowhere Man (Rubber Soul)
    04. Marvin Gaye – The onion song (The very best of)
    05. Amelie – J’Y Suis Jamias Allé (Soundtrack)
    06. Bob Dylan – Gotta Serve somebody (Best of vol. 1)
    07. Ugly Casanova – Diamonds on the Face of Evil (Show your teeth)
    08. Travis – Last Train (The Invisible band)
    09. Mojo Perry – Smile (Closer to the far away)
    10. Egill Sæbjörnsson – Save Maline (Reproduced & Deper Egill S).

  4. Shuffle

    It’s another meme from Neil! And this one has a potential embarrassment factor of 9.9! What could it be? Why, it’s the Music Shuffle Meme! The rules are rather straightforward, kind of scary, and basically ask you to put iTunes…

  5. What a totaly random thing to do – let’s do it!
    I have yet to begin to consider even scratching the surface of my collection, but from those I have recently ripped here is my ‘random top 10’. Notice I found all my Tiger CD singles – supa cool. Wait till I get to the Echobelly collection….
    Tiger – Friends
    Goldie Looking Chain – You knows I loves you
    The Divine Comedy – Note to Self
    Tiger – I’m in love with RAF nurse (Mark Radcliffe show live)
    Faithless – Loves Lives on my street
    The Divine comedy – Charmed life
    Goldie Looking Chain – Time to make a change
    David Bowie – Don’t sit down
    The Rolling Stones – the singer not the song
    Faithless – in the end
