Friday Music Report

According to my Last.fm profile, I listened to the following music the most last week:
  1. My Bloody Valentine
  2. Neko Case
  3. Catherine Wheel
  4. The New Pornographers
  5. Ted Leo & the Pharmacists
  6. Swervedriver
  7. The Shins
  8. The Wedding Present
  9. Bloc Party
  10. Blur
To slice and dice my music collection another way, so to speak, here are 10 songs drawn totally at random from my iPod using the smart playlist feature of iTunes.
  • "Straight A's - Dead Kennedys
  • "Truckstop Cassettes" - Portastatic
  • "Liberty Ship" - The La's
  • "Mass Romantic" - The New Pornographers
  • "Mohammed's Radio" - Warren Zevon
  • "What Goes On" - Bettie Serveert
  • "Conversations" - The Posies
  • "Lorca's Novena" - The Pogues
  • "Na Na Na Na Naa" - Kaiser Chiefs
  • "The Ruling Class" - Loose Fur
Would there be any interest in adding the actual mp3s of these Friday random 10 lists for your previewing pleasure (leaving them up for the week until the next report of course)? Or are most of these artists already well represented in your music collections? Maybe just one that I think is obscure? Just trying to gauge some interest and my your visits here more productive.

In a final music related note, I finally finished transitioning my many CDs to digital format. It only took a bit over a year and a half. Of course, the last 60 or so CDs had been sitting there unripped for probably a year, and I just wanted to add one particular disc last week, so I just kept on going until I was done. Let's hope I don't have to go through that again.

Anyone else have any juicy musical tidbits that may be of interest?

NP: "Little Girl"- Death From Above 1979
