Random Rules September - Submissions!

Post by Brad » Mon Sep 01, 2014 2:16 pm

As if there wasn't enough going on here already on this, the first day of September... it's also time for Random Rules!

All you need to do is submit your list of 10 random songs - the next ten that come up via the random generator on your entire music library. We'll pull them all together then start the next part in a couple days (48 hours or 10 lists, whichever comes last), then start the elimination process to create the Random Rules Jukebox for September.

Start posting!

1. Roxy Music - Avalon
2. Howling Bells - Wishing Stone
3. Goldfrapp - Alive
4. Death Cab For Cutie - Title and Registration
5. Freelance Whales - Emergency Exit
6. Bonnie Raitt - Split Decision
7. Jane Birkin - Alice
8. The Features - Big Mama's Gonna Whip Us Good
9. Tom Waits - Invitation to the Blues
10. Cody ChesnuTT - What Kind of Cool (Will We Think of Next)

Can't find the Raitt tune on youtube; the track listed under her album Slipstream is (obviously) not correct. This cover will have to do if you don't know the song; actually it's a pretty good cover!

Hmmm, I might try producing a list from my iPod next month (it has around 4000 songs on it vs the 11 and 1/2 k my library has) just for the sake of variety, but in the meantime, give it your best shot iTunes.

Chance the Rapper feat. Noname Gypsy - Lost
Flex feat. Belinda - Te Quiero
Rod Stewart - Man of Constant Sorrow
The Muppets (2011) OST - Life's a Happy Song
Aretha Franklin feat. Luther Vandross - Doctor's Orders
Bruce Springsteen - This Hard Land
Big K.R.I.T. feat. Joi - Shake It
Anita Baker - Just Because
Prince - Uptown
Decemberists - When the War Came

I have to say, I'm pretty ecstatic about this list, but I guess a list this beautifully eclectic had to come up eventually (I'm especially stoked to see "Life's a Happy Song", I have a massive soft spot for that movie) :music-listening:
The case of the Decemberists is a little complicated though, considering I learned of its existence and purchased it courtesy of the January Random Rules, so I'm not sure it deserves a second stint in the game... If anyone has any strong feelings on the matter one way or another, feel free to share, but I'll keep the 11th song here in the meantime.

Chance - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqjxjMcLK9U

K.R.I.T. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QiEHFybY-h8
Anita - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcrShxp8DPU
Prince - Yeah, not happening anytime soon
Decemberists https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CD3fCVPBgcQ

EDIT: For the sake of posterity, "Candle in the Wind" was the aforementioned 11th song... RIP Marilyn I guess

Nah, keep it in... we've had duplicates before - they always get voted out. Or... if we have our first two-time entry, so be it!

Hmm, I doubt either one of else will let a song double dip in the near future, but ok, we'll give the Decemberists a shot :D

Hey, if it's any help, Luke, I'd have eliminated Candle in the Wind faster than you can spell Decemberists. :whistle:
