Still Rainy Thrusday Shuffle

Is It Done - J Mascis.  I love Dinosaur Jr. but J Mascis solo is kinda boring.  Really disappointed with the new disc.

 

Sooner Or Later - King's X.  More downer music.  Shit, I need something peppy to get over the rainy bullshit I've been dealing with.

 

I Dont Wanna Wake Up - Voivod.  Hey Zeus and Maria....  More gloomy music.  It's a shame that the shuffle is telling me to eat a bullet.

 

If You Don't Like It - Cinderella.  Here we go, a nice…

Cold BS Wednesday Shuffle

Back On Earth - Ozzy Osbourne.  For a Zak era song, this'un isnt terrible.

 

Blue - King's X.  Not feeling it right now.  The groove isnt quite there.

 

Be Yourself - Audioslave.  Makes me think of my sister.  Thinking of my sister makes me sad.  Ugh,

 

The Part Where I Cry - Willie Nelson.  Damn, this is turning into a bummer of a shuffle.

 

Move Bitch - Ludacris.  Stupid and unneeded misogyny.

 

Well this shuffle was…

Tuesday Shakes Shuffle

Spiders - Ozzy Osbourne.  Ozzy can do better than this.  One of my least favorite pre-Zak songs.

 

Release - Pearl Jam.  I went to sleep with this song in the earphones every night from late 1991 through early 1993.  Almost falling asleep right now.  

 

Promised Land - W.A.S.P.  A decent cover of a shitty song.  W.A.S.P.s latest disc is otherwise a great album.  Pick it up!

 

Brand New Day - Sting.  I like Sting.  I like this…

Mo Monday Blues

It's rainy and cold.  Yuck.

 

Retarded - Afghan Whigs.  It would take some balls for anyone to play this now.  I'd go though.

 

The Price - Twisted Sister.  These guys are great live.  Well, Dee Snider is great live.  The other guys are fat messes these days.  The song is good.

 

Jim, I Wore a Tied Today - The Highway Men.  Poor Jim dies of a fever and the guys have to get all gussied up and wear a tie to his funeral.  It's very homo…

Sunday Night Quiet Shuffle

Just had an excellent string of songs on the shuffle.  Hoping they continue for this late night edition.

 

In You Honor - Foo Fighters.  Second favorite Foo song.  Damn.  It's straight up metal.  Goosebumps.

 

Indian - The Cult.  Fuck the naysayers, Ceremony was a good album.  This song is particularly good.

 

Indians - Anthrax.  Well shit.  The shuffle is off.  Kinda defeats the purpose of being "on the shuffle"  Still though, I cant complain too…

Fun Fun Fun Fun Friday Shuffle

Which seat should I take?  Its FRIDAY!

 

Animal Backwards - Minus the Bear.  A Facebook friend turned me on to this band.  Great stuff!  Minus the Bear are like a progressive rock band for the rock snob set.

 

Under the Microscope - School of Fish.  Man, always loved this group.  Shame about the singer, what with dying of ball cancer and all.

 

One More Night - Dwight Yoakum.  Great singer but he will forever be Doyle Hargraves in my eyes. "Randy,…

Thursday Action Shuffle

Celestial Annihilation - UNKLE.  Upbeat ambient electronica.  Not feeling it right at the moment.

 

On the Corner - Twilight Singers.  Another from the most dominant record of the last 6 or so years.  I didnt like the electric organ produced beat initially but it's grown on me.  There is urgency when the rock kicks in.

 

One Headlight - The Wallflowers.  Funny, I was just thinking of how mediocre this song was just last night.

 

Hey Ya! - Outkast.  I…

Dead Elizabeth Wednesday Shuffle

Spreading the Disease - Queensryche.  Twenty Five bucks a fuck.  Great lyric.  Great song.  Love it.

 

John the Baptist - Afghan Whigs.  Best song on the second best Whigs record.  Probably the closest to a happy love song Dulli has ever written.  Glad there is a sinister subtext though.  He does, after all, have the devil in him.

 

King Stephan op. 117 - Ludwig Von Beethoven.  It would be pretentious of me to give an opinion other than "good".  This is good.…

Tuesday twice two and one

Waiting on the insurance agent, got time for a quick shuffle.

 

Just Tonight - Jimmy Eat World.  Bass heavy and aggressive.  No complaints.

 

Arnie - Primus.  Remember this day.......  Never cared too much for the sound quality on this one.  Distorted.

 

Over Now - Alice In Chains.  Seems like I'm getting a lot of AIC these days.  Maybe it's the universe's way of telling me I need to start using heroin.

 

See and Believe - Sevendust.…

It's a Wonderful Monday Edition of the Five

Good weekend, great weather.  Looks to be more of the same this week.

 

3-Minute Rule - Beastie Boys.  Smoothness.  Horns.  I like it!

 

Screaming in Digital - Queensryche.  Probably the blueprint for Mindcrime.  Anything from Rage is good.

 

Eruption - Van Halen.  Quick and dirty solo from Eddie!

 

Is This Love - Whitesnake.  The epitome of the 80's power ballad.  David Coverdale has one of the best rock voices around.  I will be…

Friday Five!

Red, Red Wine - UB40.   Nice!  A little 80's cheese to start things out.  The singer looked legitimately drunk in that video.

 

A Tout Le Monde - Megadeth.  I have a rule.  I hate any song with French lyrics.  If Dave sang it all in English I would like it.

 

Coming 2 America - Ludacris.  King Shit.  This was fun when it came out.  Now it gets a next.

 

Be Aggressive - Faith No More. FNM is always good for a Ludacris douching.

 

Dont…

Thursday Shuffle Affliction

Warm Tape - Red Hot Chili Peppers.  The synth is strange in a RHCP song.  Distracting.

 

Mind Power - A Tribe Called Quest.  Yay Q-Tip!  

 

Mr. Crowly - Ozzy Osbourne.  More strange synth.  Possibly my least favorite Randy era single.

 

You Really Got Me - Van Halen.  Not a great cover.  Just not finding the fun today.

 

Chinese Democracy - Guns n' Roses.  I like the song and I like the album.  The backlash was false outrage.

Hump Day Shuffle Grabbing Five

Tooth and Nail - Dokken. Don's voice is shot these days but George Lynch hasnt lost a fucking step. I've seen him three times in the last year or so, he knows how to play. Tooth and Nail is a pretty good introduction to the Dokken ignorant.

 

Been There All The Time - Dinosaur Jr. Fun song. Gotta get the new J. Mascis today.



Action Needs an Audience - Jimmy Eat World. Really digging the new, somewhat angry voice the singer is taking on. He seems to have lost…

Today is the Tuesday. Shuffle on.

In the Air Tonight - Phil Collins.  If you don't like Phil Collins then I don't like you.  I can listen to this song every day and not tire of it.  In fact I probably have listened to it as many times as days I've been alive.

 

Forever - The Brand New Heavies.  Too much jazz, not enough funk.  

 

Come On - Stevie Ray Vaughn.  I was a Stevie denier for the longest time.  Never thought blues was all that difficult of an art form.  A cheap used CD and a couple of…

Monday Shuffling of the Pod!

Of Mice and Men - Megadeth.  Ahh, the reflective Mustaine.  Plodding and kinda uninspired.  One of the lesser tracks on The System Has Failed.

 

Kitchenware and Candybars - Stone Temple Pilots.  Haven't heard this one in a while.  Not much to say.  It's okay.  The lounge singing at the end kinda sucks.

 

My Brother's Wife - Butthole Surfers.  Fantastic weird shit.  Lots or synth, great beat, over usage of stereo.  What's not to like?

 

I Against I -…

Apocalypse Upon Us Shuffle

Damn.  Southeast Asia is in shambles and I'm heartbroken over my inability to help.  Gonna see if I can fix that when the shuffle is done.

 

I Just Want To Live - King's X.  Kinda fitting song for today's news.  Good song, just like most King's X songs.

 

Burn In Hell (Demo) - Twisted Sister.  Ah, a surprise!  I've never listened to this version before even though it's been on the iPod for a few months.  Good production really helped out the record version.  The…

White Slavery Thursday Shuffle

Help Help - Pearl Jam.  Another of those so-so Pearl Jam songs.  It doesnt grab you the way it should even though all of the elements are there.  Oh well, they can't bat 1000.

 

Gamma Ray - Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros.  I'm late to recognize the pure genius that was Joe Strummer.  He was a pure musician, not beholden to any genre or style.  One of the few tolerable reggae influenced songs ever produced.

 

They Ride - The Twilight Singers.  Okay, I've…

Wed Nes Day Shuff El.

Halfway Home - TV On the Radio.  Really dig the "wall of sound" on this one.  Can't wait for the new album even though the single floating around right now isnt their best work.

 

Rive of Rapture - Death Angel.  Terminally overlooked thrash band, better than Slayer on their best day.  I hate to say it but their lack of 80's domination probably has more to due with their ethnicity than their talent.  

 

I Want To Love You Tonight - Ratt.  My favorite 80's hair…

The Post Gym Tuesday Shuffle

Rise - The Cult.  One of the best songs on the best Cult album, Beyond Good and Evil.  Every 80's rock band should have progressed and adapted their sound like The Cult.

 

Top Jimmy - Van Halen.  I owned the 1984 tape when it came out but just recently purchased a used CD copy.  Dave is more obnoxious than I remember.

 

Got Some - Pearl Jam.  Middle of the road.  I recognize it as a Pearl Jam but it's not a PEARL JAM song.

 

There's Not a Problem My…

Back from a uneventful weekend: It's the Monday Five!

Honestly - King's X.  Could have been the lead ballad on Faith Hope Love.  It's earnest songwriting, a rarity.

 

You Lie and Your Breath Stank - Infectious Grooves.  It's got the good hard edged funkiness but the lyrics are juvenile.  Not for everybody.

 

Shedding Skin - Pantera.  Far Beyond Driven is superior to Cowboys.  Its angrier.  Wish this song came up at the gym earlier, I might not have half-assed it.  As an aside, I played nickel slots with Vinnie Paul a…
