5 On Friday - Doing The IPOD Shuffle

Travis of Trav's Thoughts has invented this delightful meme called 5 on Friday.  The rules are simple.. 

1. Grab the banner, make your post title Five on Friday, and be sure to link back here.

2. Go to Playlist.com to make your play list of five songs. You may choose a particular theme to share with us, or post random tunes if that's your vibe for the day. You can simply post the play list, or you can add a little summary about what you are sharing.

2a. Don't feel restricted by the tracks listed on Playlist.com. You're welcome to use any type of media to share your Sets.

3. Be sure to sign Mr Linky so everyone can visit your Set.

4. No tags, but feel free to invite your friends to play along if they need a post topic on a Friday.

This week, I took the easy way out by just putting the IPOD on "Shuffle Songs" and then using the first five songs that came up that were available on Playlist.  The following box is the result.  Just to give you an idea how eclectic things can get, I've also listed the next twenty songs that arrived.  The Highlighted ones have a link to You Tube.

Well, for some reason the real Carole King version was swiped for a drunk person's version on the playlist - and I had a weird fascination with it!

Also loved the Travelling Wilburys and the Leonard Cohen songs today.

Happy 4th of July, Jamie!

Carole King must be drunk. My words, I sound better than her.

Loved your list.

Jamie said...

Fixed the drunk Carole King pretender and substituted Neil Diamond.

When you've had enough of your iPod and don't want it any longer, how about you ship it over to the East Coast and I'll keep it for ya! I love the eclectic mix of songs you've got on there and can only imagine what the rest of 'em look like!

Heck, I can't pick a favorite so I'm not even going to try!

I'd forgotten about the Streisand song. I have the sheet music somewhere. Thanks for memories.

Loved your Ipod shuffle. I often go to the Ipod for FOF inspiration.
