iPod Shuffle - Scholiast's haphazard listening habits

1) U2 "touch" (live). Very topical on my U2 iPod...

2) Morphine "radar". One of the almost 700 songs I ripped from Daniel's iPod when I visited him and his Børge in Lisbon.

3) Billy Joel "she's got away". The man's got the biggest eyes in modern history. And a big voice to go with it.

4) Jan Eggum "lillebror Per". This Norwegian artist's been around since I was little.

5) Morten Abel "keep yourself in motion". A Norwegian would-be popstar. He's actually quite good (I find), but his English has kept him within the borders of Norway...

6) Billy Joel "still rock'n'roll to me". Rather disproportionate him showing up again within 20 songs...

7) The Beatles "piggies". Liverpool lads! Yeah...

8) Rodrigo Leão "Alma Mater". Another one from Daniel.

9) Sting "mad about you" (live). I'm mad about Sting. Bo Kasper (# 17) may be cute, and Sivert Høyem (# 16) has the sexiest voice ever, but Sting's got it all...

10) Various artists "Finale" (from Never on a Sunday). Greek, in case you wondered.

11) de Lillos "fullstendig oppslukt av frykt". My all time favourites! Norwegian band.

12) Ane Brun "little lights". Better known for her duet with Madrugada's Sivert Høyem. But this one's nice too.

13) The September when "darker and later". Morten Abel's (see # 5) old band.

14) The white birch "storm-broken tree". One more off Daniel's iPod.

15) U2 "please" (live). Did I mention I've got a thing about U2?

16) Madrugada "try". Have to love his voice... Incidentally, they're from almost the same place as I'm from.

17) Bo Kaspers Orkester "bara förr din skull". My favourite Swedish band. The information is in Swedish, but this music map may help you! The singer is also the cutest guy...

18) Dead can dance "Yulunga". Amazing atmosphere in their songs.

19) Cracker "good times bad times" (from Tribute to Led Zeppelin)

20) Franz Ferdinand "take me out"

I just got an iPod last week, and I haven't even had time to start filling it with music. I'm really interested in your list here because there is much that I'm not familiar with... I'm always looking for new things to listen to. :-)

I'm iPodless... sigh. I keep asking my hubs to put MY music on HIS so I can borrow it sometimes. Like THAT will ever happen! I like Billy Joel too though... Congrats to Italy - did you watch the final game?

Remember, 'ripping' is a practice of questionable legality. 'Making an authorized back-up copy' is legal, and even advisable. There was an earthquake in Lisbon in 1755, and you never know when there may be another one. ;-)
