Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Thursday, September 30, 2021

I haven’t done this sort of thing in a while:

Step 1: Open your MP3 player.
Step 2: Put all of your music on random.
Step 3: Write down the first 10 songs it plays, no matter how embarrassing.

Here’s mine from earlier today, off my iPod:

1. “Running on Empty” - Jackson Browne
2. “24 Hour Party People” - Happy Mondays
3. “Magic Mike & Infiniti - 2001″ - Baby Anne
4. “Party For Your Right to Fight” - Public Enemy
5. “Pray” - MC Hammer
6. “The Number Song” - DJ Shadow
7. “Psycho Killer” - Talking Heads
8. “Hole Hearted” - Extreme
9. “It Doesn’t Matter” - Chemical Brothers
10. “The Race Is On (live)” - Grateful Dead

    Or maybe you are. None of these songs are exactly current — most of them are a minimum of 10 years old.

  3. Oops…you’re right — somehow the Psycho Killer song escaped me — OK, so now I know TWO of the songs, and like ONE of them. I still feel old. No, wait — I feel “classic!”

  4. The Random 10
    Yet another music meme, which came my way from Population Statistic: Step 1: Open your MP3 player. Step 2: Put all of your music on random. Step 3: Write down the first 10 songs it plays, no matter how embarrassing. Here goes: “I’m Bound To Pack It U…
