25 Random Songs About Me

OK, so I finally did it. Here are my 25 random iPod shuffles, with two small apologies.

I have an iPod Nano, which only has like 700 songs, for better or worse. Most of the space is saved for boring talk radio. And the other day I just loaded up Cocteau Twins' Lullabies To Violane Box Set, which is like 77 mp3s. (Unfair bias!) Those are my only two handicaps.

Had I made this shuffle list from my entire iTunes library of 2,864 titles, every other song would have been either Bach or Coil.

1. Prince & The Revolution - Alexa De Paris (Extended Version)
2. The New York Collegium - Telemann: Concert for Four Violins in C Major
3. Wix - Taken Back
4. Vladimir Horowitz - Wagner: Tristan Und Isolde - Isolde's Liebestod
5. Einst├╝rzende Neubauten - Steh Auf Berlin
6. Cal Tjader - Soul Sauce (Fila Brazillia Remix)
7. Coil - Fire Of The Green Dragon
8. Coil - Nature Is A Language
9. Sufjan Stevens - The Man Of Metropolis Steals Our Hearts
10. Cocteau Twins - Oomingmak (Instrumental Version)
11. Coil - Stealing The Words
12. Cocteau Twins - Cherry-Coloured Funk
13. Cliff Martinez - La Cagaste
14. Thievery Corporation - Scene At The Open Air Market
15. Caspian - Private Detective
16. All The Pretty Things - The Gravity Of Your Smile
17. Joseph Haydn - Sonate 35 Moderato
18. Cocteau Twins - Alas Dies Laughing
19. Andras Schiff - Bach: French Suite #4 in E Flat BWV 815
20. Portishead - Small
21. Cocteau Twins - Those Eyes, That Mouth
