Default Re: The Ten Song Shuffle Game

This is from a playlist. Some of the songs reflected my feelings about recent events.

1. Return Of The Giant Hogweed - Genesis
2. Can't Turn Back The Years - Phil Collins
3. Baby Please Don't Go - Them
4. Take Me To The Mardi Gras - Paul Simon
5. Sunspot Baby - Bob Seger
6. Frail Grasp On The Big Picture - Eagles
7. Learn To Be Still - Eagles
8. Time To Heal - Midnight Oil
9. Let's Impeach The President - Neil Young
10. The Jean Genie - David Bowie

Take Me To The Mardi Gras just pipped Baby Please Don't Go. Both songs mention New Orleans (Mardi Gras is about New Orleans, obviously).

FYI, I'm not sure if this is what you meant, but cities other than New Orleans observe Mardi Gras e.g. Galveston, Tx hosts a big celebration. Of course, New Orleans' party is the best-known.

Did one of these a couple of days ago for the first time in a while:

1. Albatross - Fleetwood Mac
2. Immigrant Song - Led Zeppelin
3. Waiting For The Worms - Pink Floyd
4. Black Country Woman - Led Zeppelin
5. Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin
6. More Blues - Pink Floyd
7. Outlaw Blues - Bob Dylan
8. The Old Laughing Lady - Neil Young
9. Sands of Nevada - Mark Knopfler
10. Jessica - The Allman Brothers Band

Led Zeppelin were the best represented band/artist in this shuffle, contributing three of the ten songs, and also have my two favourites from this selection. There's not a lot between them, although I marginally prefer Immigrant Song, so that takes gold. I'm fond of Black Country Woman also, but I think Albatross (my favourite pre-Lindsey/Stevie era FM track) is the third best track here. No Eagles or solo works this time around, which is a shame because with the exception of Waiting For The Worms and Jessica I'm not that wild about most of the other tracks. I'd have preferred Outlaw Man to Dylan's Outlaw Blues, which although good isn't one of my favourites from Bringing It All Back Home. The other three tracks are okay, but far from being among my favourites by those respective artists. Overall - one of the easier ones I've done, and I think my top three were the clear standouts from this cohort.

Another shuffle I did a week or so ago:

1. Cirrus Minor - Pink Floyd
2. All Along The Watchtower - The Jimi Hendrix Experience
3. Entre Nous - Rush
4. Water of Love - Dire Straits
5. Trampled Under Foot (Live) - Led Zeppelin
6. Help Me Rhonda - The Beach Boys
7. In Any Tongue - David Gilmour
8. Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues - Bob Dylan
9. Fast Company - Eagles
10. Can-Utility And The Coastliners - Genesis

Out of this group, the two Bob Dylan-penned songs stand out to me, with Hendrix's All Along The Watchtower (my favourite Dylan cover) edging out Tom Thumb's Blues for gold, although both are great tracks. Bronze goes to Trampled Under Foot, because I think it's the best of the other songs, although the studio version could have taken a higher placing as I don't consider it to be a standout performance on Celebration Day. I did get an Eagles song this time around, but unfortunately for me it was Fast Company - not exactly one of my favourites! The other songs are generally good rather than great, although I enjoyed hearing the Rush and Genesis songs.

Another random shuffle I did about a month or so ago but never got round to putting up:

1. Young Lust - Pink Floyd
2. Pony Boy - The Allman Brothers Band
3. Let There Be More Light - Pink Floyd
4. Fare Thee Well Northumberland - Mark Knopfler
5. Goodbye Blue Sky - Pink Floyd
6. I Can Hear Your Heartbeat - Chris Rea
7. James Dean - Eagles
8. On The Run (Live) - Pink Floyd
9. A Saucerful of Secrets - Pink Floyd
10. Train In The Distance - Don Henley

I have to say this was a rather Pink Floyd-heavy set of songs - I have a lot of tracks by them admittedly, but five songs out of ten is a lot for one artist and not representative of my music collection! It's probably unsurprising therefore that their songs take two of the medal positions, with gold for Let There Be More Light (one of my favourite early Floyd songs) and bronze for Goodbye Blue Sky ahead of Young Lust. Of the non-PF songs, James Dean was definitely the song I enjoyed most, so I gave it silver. I considered giving a medal position to Train In The Distance, but I just enjoyed the three songs I picked more that day - I think I was in more of a rock mood. I don't have much to say about the other three songs really, although I like Fare Thee Well Northumberland quite a lot.
