I woke up this morning, before I needed to get up as I’m not working. I was going to do my version of the post from Life of Angela called Teaser Tuesday but , whilst I was looking for it this Tag caught my eye, so I turned my iPod on. *Correction the Teaser Tuesday was Small Town Rambler’s Post. But that mix up was serendipitous because it was an enjoyable hour doing the music shuffle*
So here are the first 15 songs that came on.
1. Macy Day Parade; Greenday
I’m pleased this came on because Greenday are one of my favourite bands and I need to tidy iPod up as random stuff I don’t like is on there. For example, I got a free Pet Shop boys CD with a newspaper and transferred it straight to iPod but found I don’t like it much.
2. Tubthumping, Chumbawumba
I can not remember any other Chumbawumba songs but, I like this one. I can remember it playing when walked out of football after a defeat probably over 15years ago (correction seen as later worked out that it’s 14 years ago, gearing Tubthumping probably happened closer to 20years who; I’m old). It cheered me up 🎶 We get knocked down. But your never going to keep us down 🎶
3. Faster; Manic Street Preachers
https://youtu.be/rl2Jv4dzFqg This started with talking and I had to look what it was. The lyrics were muffled in an annoying tone; I word normally has skipped to the next song. I do like some Manics songs, when I had iTunes voucher I bought the singles collection. I’m afraid their songs often get skipped.
4. Laid, James
https://youtu.be/5yXqRiXMru0 This is from the ‘best of’ which I used to listen to on repeat when I was getting ready to go out.
5. Sally Cinnamon; Stone Roses
https://youtu.be/QYsQcIMPOnQ As soon as this one started I recognised it as Stone Roses but had to check the song title.
6. My Father’s son; Conor Reeves
https://youtu.be/pg6fQG5CtrM I was not sure what this was. I have it on my iPod because it was on the Brit’s 98 album which I transferred on to my iPod.
7. One Horse Town – The Thrills
https://youtu.be/aR7bqYYFPFE I saw these live in Shepherds Bush, London; 14 years ago.
8. She; Greenday
https://youtu.be/OnF0pkWD2Tc I told you I like Greenday!
9. Redundant; Greenday
https://youtu.be/6ydpSVvXE9k Again! That is something that can happen randomly mathematically. However, if the human brain was picking 15 songs at random it would make sure 15 different bands. In fact when iPods first came out Apple had to make them less random because people complained about the same thing being played.
10. Help me Rhonda; Beachboys
https://youtu.be/cUxMupNEno4 One of the random CDs that came free with a newspaper that I have on my iPod. Guess it is quite a jolly song.
11. Slash ‘n’ burn; Manic Street Preachers
https://youtu.be/b8a1WEjLqUw Interesting guitar riff to start; could not think what it was though! I enjoyed this more than the earlier Manic’s.
12. Closer; Kings of Leon
https://youtu.be/NlXTv5Ondgs Quite like this song; not as much as Sex on fire.
13. Stay Young; Oasis
https://youtu.be/VeRc1UVC2NU Yes!!!! My top favourite band. I can remember writing the lyrics from this 🎶 Stay young and invincible 🎶 in friend’s school leaver books.
14. If I had a Gun; Noel Gallagher
https://youtu.be/1NMUDb3Ewhs Noel’s Post Oasis, solo era. Like his voice as well as Liam’s who sings most Oasis songs. None of his post Oasis lyrics are as good as his Oasis lyrics.
15. Hello; Seahorses
https://youtu.be/8d9sdKyAJRU I love Seahorse Love is the Law, but I have enjoyed listening to this.
Time to think about getting up, once I have finished putting YouTube links in (hope they work they don’t look as Professional as Angela’s. Randomly after, I wrote 15 The next song was Love is the Law; Seahorses.
This is Angela’s version
