Cultural Bias #70: Random Playlist

There’s a Facebook thread that asks you to submit a 25-song random playlist. The rules are simple: 1) turn on i-Tunes; 2) pull up your music library; 3) click on “shuffle;” 4) write down the next 25 songs that show up in order of their appearance. (No cheating!) Here’s how mine turned out:

1. “Crying Heart Blues” (Outtake) — The Band
2. “I Don’t Want To Be Kissed (By Anyone But You)” — Miles Davis
3. “Back to My Old Molehill” — The Flatlanders
