1- "Street Fighting Man" - The Rolling Stones (Solid cut of the album)
2- "Under Pressure" - Queen (Bowie really adds a great dimension to this song)
3- "Downtown Train" - Tom Waits (Easily my favorite song from him)
4- "Jumpin' Jack Flash" - The Rolling Stones (2 great Stones songs so far)
5- "Bron-Y-Aur Stomp" - Led Zeppelin (Not a great song)
6- "I Love Rock N Roll" - Joan Jett (I don't like it as much as I used to, but still good)
7- "Sunday Morning" - Velvet Underground (A good song, but there's ones on the album)
8- "The Tourist" - Radiohead (The closer of "Ok Computer"...)
9- "Release" - Pearl Jam (The {overlong} closer of "Ten"...)
10- "Andmoreagain" - Love (A nice song, but it goes better with the surrounding songs on the album)

Thanks for bringing this back!

Even though it's Tuesday now, I'll bite.

1. Coldplay - "X & Y"
2. Girl Talk - "No Pause"
3. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - 2nd mvmt. of String Quartet No. 16
4. Steely Dan - "Brooklyn (Owes the Charmer in Me)"
5. Michael Jackson - "The Lady in My Life"
6. Johann Sebastian Bach - "Geduld! Wenn Mich Falsche Zungen Stechen!" (from the St. Matthew's Passion)
7. The Allman Brothers Band - "Midnight Rider"
8. Franz Liszt - The "Inferno" movement from his Dante Symphony
9. Quiet Riot - "Cum On Feel The Noize"
10. The Rolling Stones - "What To Do"

Not the best my iTunes has to offer (particularly the Coldplay and Quiet Riot tracks), but maybe the classical tracks give me some better street cred...

So here's my thoughts. Feel free to tell me if this is silly...

What if...
I run "Random Rules" near the beginning of each month. After 10 completely random entries (or a full week, whichever comes first), I run a poll to pick 10 songs for the "Random Rules Playlist" that will kick off on Spotify.

I could pit all the #1's against each other, then all the #2's, etc., and everyone would have a chance to vote for each - not necessarily their favorite, but the one they think should be added to the playlist.

Each month up to 10 new songs would be added, provided they are available on Spotify.

For example, the above lists would yield the following songs in the #1 spot:
-Beulah - Gravity's Bringing Us Down
-Opportunity - Elvis Costello and the Attractions
-Rainmaker - Harry Nilsson
-Derek and The Dominos- Key to the Highway
-Lily Allen - The Fear
-Balthazar - Blood Like Wine
-The Band - Whispering Pines
-"Street Fighting Man" - The Rolling Stones
-Coldplay - "X & Y"
-My Bloody Valentine - Touched

(I would vote for "Street Fighting Man" in this case).

After votes are tallied (say every 2 days), the winner would be named and added to the "Random Rules Playlist" for posterity. Obviously, the playlist would be made available publicly. Then we would proceed with the next song group (spot #2, then 3, etc.).

Thoughts? Suggestions? I don't believe hearing every song would be a requirement for picking one... I'm trying to make this fairly simple.

Thanks!

I like the idea! It would be a good way to be (hopefully) introduced to some new songs without being too time-consuming. It also solves the problem of everyone feeling obligated to vote for their own picks; for example, there's a very little chance I would find my #1 random song this week to be worthy of my vote.

I forgot last Monday, so here's my random of the moment:

1. House Crew - "Euphoria (Nino's Dream"
2. Green Day - "She"
3. Beatles - "Her Majesty'
4. Devo - "Don't You Know"
5. The Stone Roses - "Shoot You Down" (Bootleg - Live at the Glasgow Green, 1990)
6. Blur - "Bank Holiday"
7. James Horner - "The Battle of Stirling" (Braveheart soundtrack)
8. Talking Heads - "Girlfriend is Better" (Live)
9. Pink Floyd - "Hey You"
10. Ralph Vaughan Williams - "Satan's Dance of Triumph" (Classical, from the tone poem Job)

After the overwhelming favorable response (thanks Kingoftonga and Chilton!), I figure I'll give this concept a go and see where we land.

6. Rogue Wave - Every Moment
7. Radiohead - You
8. The Damned - I Fall (John Peel Session 1976)
9. The Velvet Underground - Lady Godiva's Operation (oh no! a dupe!)
10. Black Sabbath - Into The Void

Thanks!

Yeah, I'm feeling a revival.

1- "My Sweet Lord" - George Harrison
Love this song.
2- "I Don't Want To Miss a Thing" - Aerosmith
Decent song, it's kinda cheesy, but not to the point where it's unlistenable.
3- "Down in the Valley" - Otis Redding
From his exceptional Otis Blue album.
4- "When I Come Around" - Green Day
Another great song.
5- "Cello Song" - Nick Drake
One of the many great songs from his debut.
6- "Handy Man" - James Taylor
I don't actually know this song...not exactly sure how it got onto (my) iTunes either...
7- "Changes" - David Bowie
Love it.
8- "Hey Joe" - Jimi Hendrix
Jimi taking someone else's song and making it his and his alone.
9- "Girl, You Have No Faith in Medicine" - White Stripes
One of the better songs from Elephant.
10- "Walking Spanish" - Tom Waits
Not one of his better song.

I'm on my laptop. My old computer died. I saved the hard disk with all the music but it doesn't fit in my laptop harddisk so I have a smaller collection here. Anyway :

Jurisno Cayetano - Buenas Noches Numadagu
Leadbelly - Eagle Rock Rag
Carmen Gonzalez - Caramba

So I have another Random Rules idea.

Here's what I'd like to do:
- Starting July 1st, gather up to 10 random lists (per Random Rules rules, above) in a thread like this one.
- Once we have 100 songs (10 songs each from 10 participants), compile the list, then start eliminating the songs.
- Continue eliminating one song per day per person until we have 10 songs left - one from each submitted list. In other words, once 9 of my 10 random songs are eliminated, my last song will reach the end.

The goal here is to create a "Random" song list of 10 songs - one from each contributer's list - that I can launch on Spotify or elsewhere as a measure of what we, as AM-ers, listen to and like. If it works we can continue in August and so on.

I think the random piece is pretty popular, and I've seen great success in the recent elimination tournaments, so I figured why not combine the two.

Let me know if you have any thoughts or questions, please!

Sounds good to me. In fact, it sounds so good, that I think that 10 participants are very few. It's the only "but" that I find. Although who knows, maybe i'm wrong.
