The first random 10.

I am of course waiting for it to explode in my ears or catch fire or whatnot, but I finally gave in. Stupid new music technology. Horribly cute little practical thing. I own an iPod. R. would be so displeased. So far all I can manage to hate are the default headphones. Dammit.

And, of course, this requires that I post the virginal top ten. Mind you, I haven’t got everything in there yet (not a single bit of rap or any Manson, nor have I hit hard the soundtracks rack), but here’s what showed up on the first random shuffle after the first night of dumping songs into iTunes.

  1. AFI, Fall Children (All Hallow’s EP)
  2. Depeche Mode, The Love Thieves (La Femme Nikita soundtrack)
  3. The Cure, 100 years (live from Ultra Music Festival)
  4. The Cure, Want (Wild Mood Swings) – why did I know this would be here?
  5. David Bowie, I’m Afraid of Americans (Best of Bowie)
  6. Pink Floyd, One Slip (A Momentary Lapse of Reason)
  7. AFI, The Missing Frame (Decemberunderground)
  8. Depeche Mode, Sweetest Perfection, (Violator)
  9. AFI, Totalimmortal (All Hallows EP)
  10. The Cure, The Upstairs Room (Japanese Whispers)

The next twenty:

Pink Floyd, Pink Floyd, AFI, The Cure, The Doors, The Cure, The Cure, The Cure, Smashing Pumpkins, Smashing Pumpkins, Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, The Cure, AFI, The Cure, AFI, AFI, The Cure, The Cure, The Cure, Afro Celt Sound System.

Hmmm, guess which bands I put in first?

    Am I way off base here, or do you like the Cure?

    Whatever gave you that idea?

    The sad part–I’ve only put in the major albums. I have to see how much space I have left b/f I decide how much to put in of the bootlegs, live shows, and singles/b-sides.
