Day Fifteen: 10 Songs

Day 15- Put your iPod on shuffle: First 10 songs that play

I haven’t used my actual iPod in a while (well apart from as a wake-up tool on my Hello Kitty iPod alarm clock), so here are the first 10 songs that play on my iPhone:

1. Dixie Chicks – Not Ready to Make Nice
Wow. It’s been ages since I heard this. I have just done a wipe of my iPhone and added new tracks, including some old favourites. This song really struck a chord with me when I first heard it, and the video is really really good.
“It’s a sad sad story when a mother will teach her daughter that she oughta hate a perfect stranger..”

2. Chris Tse – Be Still, Be Brave
Short and sweet but kinda addictive, my friend Chris’ song is stuck in my head constantly.
“If you let it be.. if you let it be..”

3. Florence and the Machine – Dog Days are Over
So catchy and bouncy and just, good.
“Run fast for your mother, run fast for your father..”

4. RENT – La Vie Boheme
One of my favourite songs ever from a musical: I still know all of the words.
“Let he among us without sin be the first to condemn!”

5. Bic Runga – Hey
I love her early stuff and decided to reload the Drive album onto my iPhone this week. I just.. love the way she sings this song.
“What’s it to ya? You’ve been questioning why all day..”

6. Feist – 1 2 3 4
Another reload. This song always makes me happy. The Sesame St version is pretty amazing, too.
“Money can’t buy you back the love that you had then..”

7. Joni Mitchell – River
One of her best.
“I wish I had a river I could skate away on..”

8. Charlotte Martin – Cloudbusting
Charlotte’s version of this Kate Bush classic is pretty heartbreaking. One of my favourite covers.
“Keep it special, keep it dangerous..”

9. Taylor Swift – Mine
Yeah yeah, okay. Sshh you.
“You made a rebel of a careless man’s careful daughter..”

10. Rufus Wainwright – Chelsea Hotel No. 2
I just can’t skip past this. Ever. His rendition of this song is just so stellar; so sublime it makes my inner musician cry about never ever sounding this good.
“Those were the reasons, that was New York, we were running for the money and the flesh..”
