First Five

We're doing this again, because fuckfuckfuckityfuck I'm busy. Why do these people think I should be working when i'm at work!?  What a grand gang of assholes.

Kidding, of course.  I love my job... especially the paycheck part.

So the game is that these are the first five songs that came up on my iPod this morning... presented with as little commentary or explanation as possible.

I know... it's kind of lame, but it's all I've got right now.  Deal with it, mother truckers.

1. JJ Jackson - But It's Alright

2. Graham Coxon - Bittersweet Bundle of Misery

3. The King's Singers - Annie Laurie

 I couldn't find the version by The King's Singers on YouTube, but this is similar.

4. Duke Ellington - It Don't Mean A Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)

5. The Ting Tings - Great DJ

Once again... this exercise has accurately depicted what a total and absolute nerd I am.  I mean... Annie Laurie sung by a choir??  Am I 72 years old?

Well I must run...I have some reruns of Matlock to watch while eating Werther's Originals.

Check you later, pals!


  1. Bullshit! You aren't a nerd! You're lovely. I listen to classical music all the time, my dear. Not only is it relaxing, but it's what all the cool kids listen to. You know, besides Duke Ellington (who I love BTW).

    Besides, if you knew my musical tastes, you'd probably go like this: 0_0

  2. Why thank you!

    My first real introduction to both Duke Ellington AND classical music came in the form of a tape my best friend recorded for me off of her dad's records. One side was a recording from a Duke Ellington record from the 1940s and on the other side she recorded Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. I still have that tape and covet it because it has all of those snaps and pops recorded on it. Newer versions just don't sound right to my ears.
