“Random Play”

Remember a few years ago it was a big thing to know what people had on their iPods? Well, I just found a new blog I enjoy reading. It’s called “Words of Wisdom”. His latest post is a listing of the first 16 songs he listened to when he set his mp3 player to shuffle. I thought – Oh, what fun! I think I’ll try it! And because I found a complete stranger’s list interesting, I thought there might be a remote possibility that someone might find mine interesting. I am, however, going a little further and being a little more annoying. I’m going to tag a bunch of people to do the same thing. OH NO!! TAGS! Ha ha – gotcha!! Naturally you must list them on your blogs for all to see, so start listening! And no, there is no political, environmental, or humanitarian benefit to doing this. The only positive benefit is social and possibly psychological. Apparently you can learn a lot about a person looking at their list. Good luck with mine. *wicked laugh* Have fun folks.

I tag: Gabriela, Karin, Paul, Kinzi, Fantasia, Abufares, Ana Sourie, Omar, Kinan, and Sabenindam. If there are any readers who don’t have a blog and want to post their list in the comment section, please feel free. I’d love to see it!

So, em, here’s my list:

Heart – All I Want to Do (is to Make Love to You)
Backstreet Boys – Drowning
Captain Hollywood Project – More and More
The Cult – In the Clouds
Styx – Mr. Roboto
Youssef Boutros – Ahbabena Ya Ain
Loreena McKennitt – Prologue
Chris de Burgh – Sailing Away
Kiss – I Was Made for Loving You
Depeche Mode – Hole to Feed
Prince – When Doves Cry
Loreena McKennitt – The Highwayman
Toni Braxton – You’re Making me High
Ella Fitzgerald – Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer (left over from Christmastime)
Luigi Tenco – Vedrai Vedrai
Elissa – Ana Bastaghrab A’leeh

Can’t wait to see yours. πŸ™‚

  1. Thank you Isobel for the tag!!!

    I found your list most interesting especially so since we share several titles in our libraries.

    I was surprised to find Luigi Tenco – Vedrai Vedrai on your list. Its’ a very sad song but remains one of my favorites of all times. The Italian lyrics are haunting. His life, like that of his wife for one night, the Egyptian/Italian singer Dalida ended tragically. She discovered his body and the suicide note in the morning. 20 years later, it was Dalida’s turn to take her own life.

    Vedrai Vedrai… I will, I will
    respond to your tag today.


    1. Oh, good, Abufares! I’m glad you’ll play along! That song by Luigi Tenco, I forgot I had…actually half the stuff I forget is on my iPod until I throw on the random shuffle. Which is fun to do once in a while. It is a very nice song. In fact, I have an entire album of Italian songs, folk songs really, which is just wonderful. Hmmm…suddenly I got the urge to go to an Italian restaurant…well, Italy really…but the best I can do for now is Ottawa’s Little Italy. πŸ™‚


    1. Well, Gabriela, I hope you’ll join in! πŸ™‚ I just looked at Abufare’s post…I guess he copied my title, since I tagged him, and I copied the title from the guy at Words of Wisdom. πŸ™‚ It’s contagious! lol! Feel free to use the title too!!


    1. Hi Matt! Thanks for dropping by. Yes, I have the worst time answering the question, what’s your favourite kind of music, or who’s your favourite singer? lol! You just can’t peg me…except maybe to say “eclectic”. πŸ˜€


  2. Isobel, wow, I seem to be a day late and dollar short these days!

    Truth be told, I don’t have an ipod or MP3 player…but I will make up what my playlist WOULD be if my kids would just share. πŸ™‚


    1. You know, Kinzi, I should not have assumed that everyone had an mp3 player. So, yes, I love your idea…make it up…or list your 16 favourite songs of all time (that would be so hard for me). Can’t wait to see what you come up with. πŸ˜€

      1. Oh…fantastic, Fantasia! Thanks! Like your selection…know a lot of it and have very similar ones on my iPod…they just didn’t show up in the shuffle. lol! It would have been a challenge to put all that in a story, so perhaps this was a better option. πŸ™‚
