Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

It’s been a while since the last shuffle-generated listing of my iTouch’s song output. Today, this curious sequence came out:

Two Britney Spears remixed tracks to start, followed by a couple of Michael Jackson classics (one remixed and one from the Jackson 5 era). It’s almost like the two pop superstars decided to go to war, right on my music player! And in the midst of that high-voltage pop playback, one-hit wonder Noel somehow snuck into the mix.

And with that, let’s roll the last five songs to randomly tick up in my earbuds, along with a semi-cryptic lyric snippet from each:

1. “Circus (A Crowd Electric Remix)”, Britney Spears - I’m running this.

2. “Womanizer (Mr. Vega Combined Power Rework)”, Britney Spears - Baby you got all the puppets with their strings up.

3. “Thriller (Villains Thrilla Remix)”, Michael Jackson - Tonight.

4. “Silent Morning”, Noel - I’m on fire.

5. “I Want You Back”, Jackson 5 - Every street you walk on, I leave tear stains on the ground.

Overheard on the street this morning:

He’s not mean, but he is nervous; he bites first and asks questions later.

I’m going to presume this was describing a pet dog, versus a human being. Although, man or beast, if he’s that nervous, better he should chomp down before shooting his mouth off, instead of the more traditional shooting first and asking later.
