Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Tuesday, April 01, 2021

Time for a new spew of shuffled-up tracks out of my iPod Touch. It’s a rainy April Fool’s Day here in New York, and that has nothing to do with this little exercise, but what the heck.

My last listing was back in January, indicating that this musical roundup has taken on a quarterly schedule. It’s anything but intentional, believe me.

As always, the Number Eight is brought to you by 8trk. Coming any day now, I hear.

1. “Starlett Johansson (Narctrax remix)”, The Teenagers - You don’t believe in monogamy.

2. “The Race Is On”, George Jones - Heartaches are going to the inside.

3. “We Are Your Friends (Lee Cabrera’s ‘Lower East Side’ Remix)”, Justice vs. Simian - You’ll never be alone again.

4. “Welcome To The Terrordome”, Public Enemy - Crucifixion ain’t no fiction.

5. “Fat Albert (TV show theme)”, Bill Cosby - And Bill’s gonna show you a thing or two.

6. “The One I Love”, R.E.M. - A simple prop, to occupy my time.

7. “Ch-Check It Out”, Beastie Boys - Sport that fresh attire.

8. “Sympathy For The Devil (Soul To Waste remix)”, Laibach - [instrumental, no lyrics]

With Google’s new Gmail Custom Time feature, you’ll never again lose out in a first-through-the-inbox race for giveaways:

“I just got two tickets to Radiohead by being the ‘first’ to respond to a co-worker’s ‘first-come, first-serve’ email. Someone else had already won them, but I told everyone to check their inboxes again. Everyone sort of knows I used Custom Time on this one, but I’m denying it.”

Just be sure to read the fine print before backdating your e-missives, on this fine April day. ;)
