What’s on Your iPod?

I tend to ignore those silly Facebook quizzes/question games, but I enjoyed this one because it demonstrates exactly how bizarre and random my taste in music is.  I figured, why not get to know (and potentially mock) your fellow Balloonbaggers’ musical stylings?  For example, I would love to know if Sarah, Proud, and Tall has a treasure trove of Britney Spears on her iPod.  (Or if she is even permitted an iPod at Shady Pines or wherever she is convalescing after John’s birthday bash.) Also, I’m fairly certain that Cole celebrates Jack Johnson’s entire collection:

Here we go:

First rule – be honest! Don’t keep shuffling forward for cooler songs. (1) Turn on your MP3 player or music player on your computer. (2) Go to SHUFFLE mode. (3) Write down the first 20 songs that come up – title and artist.

Here’s mine:

  1. The Grid – Daft Punk (Tron Legacy Soundtrack)
  2. Proper Motivation – Michael Giacchino (Lost Season 1 Soundtrack)
  3. Fatalism (Ryuichi Sakamoto & Yukihiro Takahashi Remix) – Massive Attack (Heligoland)
  4. Brilliant Mind – The Furniture (Some Kind of Wonderful Soundtrack) [we must be out of our brilliant minds]
  5. Forces Fiction – John Tejada- (Sasha Live at Avalon Los Angeles, 06/24/2006) [ok, that’s a little weird!]
  6. Sam – Massive Attack (Danny the Dog)
  7. The Sinner in Me – Depeche Mode (Playing The Angel)
  8. SpottieOttieDopaliscious – Outkast (Aquemini) [dayum, dayum, dayum!]
  9. Daylight Robbery – Imogen Heap (Speak for Yourself)
  10. No. Danses Des Cygnes – Tchaikovsky (Swan Lake)
  11. Eachhoureachsecondeachminuteeachday: Of My Life – Maxwell (Embrya)
  12. Shame On a Nigga – Wu-Tang Clan (Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers))
  13. Ghetto Thang – De La Soul (3 Feet High and Rising)
  14. B-Boy Bouillabaisse – Paul’s Boutique (Beastie Boys)
  15. Never Let Me Down Again – Depeche Mode (Music for the Masses)
  16. In the Wee Small Hours – Carly Simon (Sleepless in Seattle Soundtrack)
  17. Where I Belong – Sia (The Colour and the Small One)
  18. Naima (Live The Village Vanguard 1961) – John Coltrane
  19. Release – Black Eyed Peas (Bridging the Gap) [before they got wack]
  20. Sleeping Lessons (The Shins)

Whaddya got? Don’t lie!

    What is this ‘iPod’ you speak of? Is that like a cell phone? ‘Cause I don’t have one of those, either. What, people don’t listen to vinyl anymore?

    I don’t have my iPod, so forgive me for going a bit off topic – but we listen to the digital music channels on the AT&T Uverse cable system.

    We started listening to the R&B Classics. I did not realize how much of that music I know and enjoy, especially from the 70s.: The Spinners, Lou Rawls, Earth Wind & Fire.

    I guess I used to roller skate to a lot of these songs.

    5. Might (Modest Mouse)

    18. Jig (Reel Big Fish)
    19. Spin the Globe (Reel Big Fish)
    20. Double Groove (Unfinished Outtake) (Talking Heads)

    Gives a somewhat accurage picture of my music taste, although mixed in with plenty of stuff that I’ve either never listened to or haven’t listened to in years. The two Reel Big Fish tracks are particularly misrepresentative (don’t remember getting it, never once given them a listen).

    19. O.A.S.D. – Ion Dissonance

    20. Bad Wings (Them Jeans Remix) – The Glitch Mob

    Any looks of confusion caused by act names should be attributed to the fact I’m into everything from techno to folk and world music. I’m kind of surprised the shuffle missed the entire Middle Eastern collection, but it picked up from the Jawaiian discs so I can’t bitch too much.

    But it also leapfrogged my Celtic music folder, which I find unconscionable.

    Here’s what I ended up with…

    Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – The Wild One, Forever (Live)
    Modest Mouse – Bury Me With It
    Trombone Shorty – Where Y’at (Live)
    The Beatles (in mono) – Drive My Car
    Gorillaz – Dracula
    Fountains of Wayne – Amity Gardens
    R.E.M. – You’re In The Air
    Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – Any Way You Want It (Live)
    The Rolling Stones – Monkey Man
    Queens Of The Stone Age – Hangin’ Tree
    R.E.M. – Falls To Climb
    Daft Punk – TRON Legacy (End Titles)
    Gorillaz – Re-Hash
    Takeharu Ishimoto – Owari-Hajimari
    Gorillaz – Hillbilly Man
    R.E.M. – Just A Touch
    The Beatles (stereo this time) – Don’t Pass Me By
    U2 – Crumbs From Your Table
    Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – Mystic Eyes (Live)
    The Killers – Forget About What I Said

    You can figure out albums on your own (except for Takeharu Ishimoto…that song is from the soundtrack for the video game The World Ends With You).

    I guess what surprises me is after checking to see that I had a crapton of R.E.M. on the iPod, I got two songs from Up?!

    28G worth of songs (yea, it’s an older ipod). Something like 6,150 of ’em. Where do you want me to start?

    Heavy on 60’s & 70’s rock, pop, blues, motown & some folk. It doesn’t stop at the 70’s but goes on. It’s just that in the 80’s rock kinda sucked other than the Pretenders, the Police, U2, the Clash and any of Jerry’s bands. (not an exclusive list, more of just a slice of what I thought was good in the 80’s) Yea, typical boy of my era.

    Also, I firmly believe most people scroll through their iPod and select only the ‘cool and hip’ music and leave out their occasional guilty pleasures like Justin Timberlake or Keisha.

    (Not that either of those are my guilty pleasures.)

    Oh fuck it, yes, I love “Bringing Sexy Back” and “Tik Tok” so sue me.

    I’ll argue for Ke$ha outclassing Katy Perry any day of the week so long as I don’t have to throw Lady Gaga into the discussion. Then they both can eat her dust for my tastes.

I’m surprised no Stones songs came up as I have three Stones Albums on my iPod right now (Some Girls, Exile on Mainstreet, and Sticky Fingers) and yes – I have some Bowie too (Ziggy Stardust). He may be a ponce but he’s great nonetheless.

    Like quicksand, 10 seemed sufficient to me. Weirdly unrepresentative, it seems to me, of what I have, but random sampling doesn’t lie:

    Presidential Rag, Arlo Guthrie, Friends of Chile Benefit 5/9/74
    Visions of Johanna, Bob Dylan, Blonde on Blonde
    Mexican Cousin, Phish, Hampton VA 3/7/2009
    Life from a Window, The Jam, This Is the Modern World

    All the Trees of the Field Will Clap Their Hands, Sufjan Stevens, Seven Swans
    Kings of African Music, Fela Kuti & Youssoun N’douri & Ali Farka

    I mean, I’m not sure I’ve ever actually listened to that Arlo Guthrie one before…

    I don’t have an ipod. And like, as if I were organized enough to keep music tracks in a music folder. My music folder is empty.

    I see some stuff in My Documents with Public Enemy/Moby Make Love **** war. A folder of Purcell choral music. Some Sonny Boy Williamson II and Jimmy Reed tracks. I got a folder of some Gamelon music. A folder of new rock bands a guy down the hall sent me a few weeks ago with cool new stuff I should listen to get up to speed on what happening now. Most of them sound OK, but I have not bothered to learn the names. And some fast tempo ska for when I feel sleepy at work.

    That’s the best I can do.

    … how do people keep track of their favorite songs these days? It seems like there is just so much music, so many bands, so many albums where you love just that one song so much and shortly forget the name of the band and the album and that song just wanders around in your memory … do people have some way of keeping track of which songs they most cherish? The other day, and not for the first time, I had to spend hours trying to recall enough of the lyrics of the song half floating around in my head where i could google the lyrics and then find the song on my hard drive (2 TB of music, roughly) (turns out it was McKinley’s “Amsterdam”). How do people organize and track their music? Is it just iTunes, mostly (which I loathe)? Just wondering, after seeing such musical diversity in this list.

    Buying products from one of the most evil, litigious companies with a history of abusing contract workers.

    We won’t even get into the number of jobs that were sent to Asia so you could have their cheap products.

    We won’t even get into the virtual slave labor conditions that exist in the Foxconn plants in China.

    I wrote a monkey to make the list and look up the videos. Sadly, more than three links will put me in mod hell, so none for you.

    Also too, my program defaults to doing the friday random 10, and I forgot it was 20 and I’m too lazy to go back and do it again.

    Mexican Radio – Wall of Voodoo

    I still have their first 2 on vinyl and occasionally listen to them. Stan Ridgway is under appreciated. Saw them live in the early ’80s in a college town bar.

    But you have your principals and you stand by them, right? Support workers rights, as long as it is Republicans abusing the workers.”

My iTunes music is sadly out of date but here goes:

    I usually just haul artists in and out and swap out periodically. Currently:

    Band of Skulls
    Broken Bells
    Carolina Liar
    Gnarls Barkley
    Green Day
    Mumford and Sons
    My Chemical Romance
    Sleigh Bells
    The White Stripes

    Probably most of everything each of those artists has done. Basically all of my Radiohead is in there, so that’s probably 1/3 of all the tracks. I think Green Day is just since American Idiot.

    I’ve probably got a dozen or so genre clusters that I put together and swap in and out and adjust over time. Music goes tightly with what I’m doing, particularly if I need to concentrate. If I read a book and then reread it, I’ll often hear the song I was listening to the first time I read a given page – even years and years later. Same goes for painting a room, etc. There’s a spot in my bedroom that when I look at it I hear Stacked Actors by Foo Fighters. I painted it 6 years ago. It was a spot where I was having trouble cutting in the wall color and that song was playing. Conversely when I hear the song, I see the color of my bedroom wall. Almost everything I do calls up a song, but listening to music helps push that out (it’s quite distracting) unless it’s a very different genre. I can’t push Foo Fighters out with classical, but I could with any of the stuff above. The list above is my coding collection. Writing code means modern, usually somewhat chaotic music. Outdoor projects is 60/70 rock. Books vary, depends on the book genre. That kind of thing.

    You guys complain about earworms, but you have no idea…

    @MattR – Hey Man, Nice Shot is one of the handful of songs that instantly make me change the station when it comes on the radio. I always wonder why it was so popular, and who could possibly WANT to listen to it. Mystery solved. :)

    Like another early commenter, I leave the Christmas stuff on the ipod all year, but skip it when it comes up out of season on the shuffle. There’s a lot more classical in my CD library but I tend to listen to that only at home, not when I’m at work or on the road.

    If it were based on what I listen to most, there would be a lot more jazz for uncle ebenezer, especially a whole lot of Pat Metheny and stuff from the GRP label.

    Kind of alt-rock heavy there, but number 6 is proof that there’s a fair bit of J-Pop (or whatever category motion graphic music falls into) on the old iTunes playlist. This is really embarrassing, actually.

    Shuffle more-or-less gets left on full-time. It makes for interesting segues between songs.

    1. Into the Atom Age – XTC
    2. Bright and Morning Star – Mindy’s Revenge
    (Never actually listened to this. This is some random free CD I picked up somewhere years ago. Turned out to be contemporary gospel soft rock. Now that I’ve listened to this song once, I can say that it’s actually not horrible as semi-acceptable background music. I just can’t take contemporary gospel stuff lyrically. The lyrics are usually incredibly awful.)
    3. Rocket – Herbie Hancock
    4. (Da Le) Yaleo – Santana
    5. It’s a Shame About Ray – The Lemonheads
    6. Lady Is a Pirate – Megan Slankard
    (Another random freebie CD acquired somewhere along the line. Like this one quite a bit. Stayed in my car changer for months. Know nothing about the artist, though.)
    7. Fierce Flawless – Ani DiFranco
    8. Sunday (The Day Before My Birthday) – Moby
    9. The Man Who Couldn’t Cry – Johnny Cash
    10. Poison – The Constantines
    11. Other Side – Cross Canadian Ragweed
    12. Clean It Up – Butthole Surfers
    13. Into My Arms – Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
    14. Vertigo – Aztec Camera
    15. Howard Dean’s Great Restoration Speech (Faulkner Remix) – Michael Faulkner
    (Oh wow, did this ever take me back. Hearing this was like remembering the greatest love of your life that got away. Man, was that ever an amazing summer.)
    16. Summertime (Gershwin) – Bobby Womack and The Roots
    17. Guiding Light – Television
    18. The Destroyed Room – Sonic Youth
    19. Earthquake – 24-7 Spyz
    20. I Kissed a Girl – Jill Sobule

    Caveat: There’s always one “cheat” that I really do have to execute on these things. I collect Christmas music. I have an overwhelming amount of it. I have to use my non-xmas playlist when I do these random things because to do otherwise would lead to 20 Christmas songs, which is not even remotely representative of my collection of “music that is actually meant to be listened to.”

    I’m not sure how iTunes makes its choices– two of these 20 are things I’m sure I haven’t listened to in over three years. And I listen to Tom Waits almost constantly, and he didn’t even make the cut (sorry, Tom.)
    Anyway, it left out both the “really weird” and the “really normal” parts of my library, so I don’t think it’s predictive of anything very much about BJ’ers musical tastes.
    Doesn’t mean I’m not curious, though, to find out if any tunes/artists keep popping up.

    By the time I got here, ABL, there were just over 200 responses already, so I couldn’t read thru them all (who can?).

    I will throw my list onto the pile because while I’m ordinarily a humble guy, my musical taste is teh awesome, so I know my picks will stand out. Here ya go – totally random (song, artist, album):

    1. Emakhaya – by the Heshoo Beshoo Group (from an awesome compilation of African Jazz called ‘Next Stop Soweto, Vol. 3’)
    2. Catgroove – by Parov Selar (Coco Part 2)
    3. 33 Degree – Thievery Corporation (Radio Retaliation)
    4. The S.A Move – Skophom (Heh. This off of Vol 2. of the ‘Next Stop Soweto’ series. This one is African pop-psychedelic tunes from the 60’s & 70’s. Another great album. Funny both of these came up on shuffle…)
    5. Strode Rode – Sonny Rollins (Saxophone Colossus)
    6. Allergic to Lies – Lee Scratch Perry & Dub Syndicate (Time Boom – de Devil Dead)
    7. Interlude (2) – Joshua Redman – (Timeless Tales… This one may not count as it’s only about 40 seconds long).
    8. The Mystery Zone – Spoon (Transference)
    9. All in Forms – Bonobo (Black Sands)
    10. Primavera – Ludovico Einaudi (Divenire)
    11. Sister Sadie – Horace Silver (Blowin’ the Blues Away)
    12. Fruity Pebbles: VIII. Lefty’s Elegy – Real Quiet (Tight Sweater)
    13. The Snow Prelude N. 2 – Ludovico Einaudi (Nightbook – Hmmm. I got 30G on here why’s he on twice? He’s great though, so who cares?)
    14. Candle Burned Out – The Shout Out Louds (Work)
    15. Imaginary Bars – Great Lake Swimmers (Bodies and Minds)
    16. Beyond the Zero – Bill Laswell (Dub Chamber 3)

    20. Trailer Park Ghost – Brad Mehldau (Elegiac Cycle)
    BONUS: Tick Tick Boom – The Hives (The Black and White Album)

    That was fun! I’ll confess: I’d probably skip some of the above depending on my mood, but I usually play this 30G ipod on an ‘All Tracks’ shuffle.

    I have listened to every Thermals album to death–I love them. I’ve played Returning to the Fold and I Hold the Sound (and other songs of theirs) more often than a sane person should hit “repeat.” Ironically, the only time they ever scheduled a concert where I live, they cancelled.

    I will check out the bands you recommended that I don’t already know. My favorite albums of the last year or so are These New Puritans, Hidden; the Klaxons, Surfing the Void; and The Sunshine Underground, Nobody’s Coming to Save You. Not that you asked, heh.

    You’re right. We really are hideous people for listening to our iPods. I hope you can forgive us, and will provide a how-to guide to phonograph construction in the near future.

    Interesting that you imagine the only possible alternative to Apple is to technologically regress. Must be difficult when the options in your mind are so limited and so few.

    I always enjoy the hypocrisy of my fellow progressives supporting companies like Apple that have such abysmal records with regard to progressive policies. As long as it is “cool” or “hip” your values go right on out the window. All talk and no action.

    Fookin humans, they’re so fookin’ humanlike.

    Though my main issue with Apple isn’t them exploiting workers (not that it isn’ horrible – but could you tell me one tech company producing hardware for the mass market that doesn’t? Yeah, thought so – this is why we need government regulations – the free market dictates that the most effective will win, everything else being equal (and depending on consumers to go with the “moral” choice is fool’s bet, when applied to big enbough numbers), so everyone goes with chinese prison workers -_-) – it’s that they’re fookin’ control freaks and want to tell me what I can and can’t do on devices I fookin’ bought.

    And that excuses it.
    It is like the “No one could have expected” excuse. Anything to excuse what was convenient or expeditious.

    As for companies with mass market products that have not outsourced? Would Bose count? Do you need more? Since this was a music thread it seems quite appropriate.

    As for the rest, I covered that basic point with “litigious”. They enfoce their rules and their methods regardless of what you want. If you or anyone else even comes within a mile of something they feel they own, they having a very large legal staff break out the civil suits.

    Ditto that on the control freak aspect of Apple being the part I like least with the company (as though any company is or could be morally perfect). Well, that and the cultish behavior of some of the users. It’s a well designed machine for some but not all purposes and it’s not a deity or a digital/stylistic version of the rapture. Got a pod as a gift and burn my own stuff. I not deranged enough to believe that I can catch moral cooties from the silly thing though. sheesh.

    Blowing down some champagne and getting a good start on my three-day weekend. Inspired by this thread, I switched the output of my computer sound card from the speakers to headphones so I can crank the volume without offending the neighbors. Put together a playlist combining some of my random 20 with songs from other commenters or songs inspired by other commenters. Bob Seger is currently wailing through the still relevant antiwar song “2 + 2 = ?”

    Hmm. I have been reminded that it is nice to occasionally turn the volume up to 11. Cool.

    Well I knew a guy in high school
    Just an average friendly guy
    And he had himself a girlfriend
    And you made them say goodbye
    Now he’s buried in the mud sand of a foreign jungle desert land
    And his girl just sits and cries
    She just doesn’t understand
    So you say he died for freedom

    Awesome list. I would be happy to have any of those on my Droid. (And some I do.)

    I saw the Allmans do “Stormy Monday” live back in the day. Religious experience.

    On the jazzy side, Lou Rawls and Les McCann do an excellent version.

    Holy fuck! Bob Lind, “Elusive Butterfly.” Did I put that on there?! Even I can’t be that old.

    Yes, I am. Yes, yes, I am.

    Jeez, as long as I’m going for the soaring, melancholy violins, let me see if I can find Bobbie Gentry’s “Ode to Billy Joe.”

    Mission accomplished.

    And I think I will be okay. Dawn approaches, and we have the post-Newtonian clarity of Miles to see us through.
