Shuffle Play Whiplash

iTunes just threw up a pretty good set of songs that spans almost the full range of my four-and-five-star playlist:

  1. “Solar Sex Panel,” by Little Village.
  2. “Mr. Brightside,” by the Killers
  3. “I Wish I Had an Evil Twin,” by the Magnetic Fields
  4. “Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat,” by Bob Dylan
  5. “Swing, Swing,” by the All-American Rejects
  6. “Flash,” by Queen
  7. “Buffalo Soldier,” by Bob Marley
  8. “Romeo and Juliet,” by Dire Straits
  9. “New Year’s Day,” by U2
  10. “D.J. D.J.,” by he Transplants

It needs a little soul (there are songs by Jackie Wilson and the Four Tops farther down), some alt-country (there’s an Old 97′s song a little later), some harder-edged alternarock (Foo Fighters almost count, a little way down, but the Afghan Whigs would be better), but it covers most of the bases as far as my musical tastes go.

It’s also a convenient excuse to test out the new “scheduled posts” publishing option on ScienceBlogs. I’m going downstairs to watch some cartoons, and we’ll see if this is published when I get back…
