If Max does it, it’s a meme. Therefore I fired up iTunes and hit random play to see what came out. With 3,198 songs on our shared server, you’d think the results wouldn’t be so embarrassing…1. “Whenever, Wherever” – Shakira
2. “#41” – Dave Matthews Band
3. “Back Home Again” – John Denver
4. “We Walk” – Steelpole Bathtub (from Surprise Your Pig, an REM tribute album)
5. “The Arrival’s Gate” – Ani Difranco
6. “Seasons of Love” – Cast of RENT
7. “Lazyhead and Sleepybones” – They Might Be Giants
8. “Thanks Bro” – Filter
9. “Crawl” – This Way
10. “Bad Moon Rising” – Creedence Clearwater Revival

I was all set to complain that those make me sound lamer than I am, but after reconsidering I’m forced to admit that it’s actually a scarily-accurate picture of my music-listening personality. Yes, I listen to Broadway soundtracks and Top 40’s pop and feminist folk rock and classic rock standards.

  1. I had to do this, too. Heh! Fun meme!

    Hey, is John Denver’s “Back Home Again,” the same song from those commericals that used to air back in the early 90’s in NE Indiana? I think it was for the Hoosier Lotto or a local car dealership. The song from that commercial went something like, “Back home again in Indiana/blah blah blah/I’m your native son.”

    Heh. I’m horrible with lyrics.

  2. I know the song you’re thinking of. I don’t think they’re the same. I kept expecting those words in the song but it’s got a slightly different tune. (The Snook’s the John Denver fan.)
