I’ve been listening to all of my music on shuffle lately, which is unusual for me—usually I pick an album that suits my mood and listen to it straight through. Certain songs come up on shuffle way more often than they should in a random distribution. Here’s what my iPod thinks I need to hear more than anything else:
- Nick Drake bootlegs
- The Clientele
- Charles Mingus, Presents Charles Mingus
- Los Aterciopelados, Caribe Atómico
- Caviar, “Tangerine Speedo”
If there’s a hidden theme, I have no idea what it is.
