The Random Ten

I found this idea over on Pandagon and I liked it so much I decided to steal it and make it a regular feature. Can't say I like their new site design, but the writing's still as sharp and the ideas just as theft-worthy. This can be a group activity too. See, take the music source of your choice that has a random feature on it and list the first ten songs it picks for you randomly. Now, as they mention on Pandagon, there is to be no cheating. If an embarrassing song comes up or you end up with six songs by the same artist, well tough luck. After all, maybe you'll get a better set next week.

Here's mine (Song title - Artist):

1) I Got A Right Ta - Common

2)War Within A Breath - Rage Against The Machine

3)The Bachelor and the Bride - The Decemberists

4)Piano Solo - Dream Theater

5)I Don't Rap in Bumper Stickers - Sole

6)Aisle of Plenty - Genesis

7)Mic Check - Rage Against The Machine

8)Narcissist, 1999 (Live on WRIU) - Sage Francis

9)Long, Lonesome Highway Blues - Steve Earle and the Del McCoury Band

10)Give Me - Atmosphere

Not a bad mix. Don't forget to post your own Random 10 in the comments.
