shall we dine al fresco tonight?

Which chair would you like?

It being Friday and all, it felt like the right time to resurrect the Friday Random Playlist. This poor neglected playlist game ends up on life support so often that we can't afford the electricity bills any longer.

Since this playlist was lifted from a Facebook shuffle meme that I was finally shamed into playing today, it features fifteen fabulous tracks rather than the standard ten. Living on the edge, I know.

For the record, I have no idea how my shuffle managed to play three consecutive Weakerthans songs. But to my itunes shuffle, I say kudos, you have impeccable taste.

1. Comment (if all men are truly brothers) - Wilco

2. Under my thumb - the Rolling Stones

3. Lettuce and vodka - X

4. That's not my name - the Ting Tings

5. Summerrain - Dubblestandart

6. We're a happy family - the Ramones

7. I don't love anyone - Belle and Sebastian

8. Laydown - Chikita Violenta

9. Drunk on aluminum - Wintersleep

10. Chinball wizard - the Wet Secrets

11. You cheat yourself of everything that moves - the Verlaines

12. Anchorless - the Weakerthans

13. Without mythologies - the Weakerthans

14. Fallow - the Weakerthans

15. Broken broken broken heart - Jeffrey Lewis & the Junkyard


There are two songs on this playlist which I have not only never heard before, but I have never even heard of the artist. How they ended up on my itunes is beyond me. Apple elves?

Care to make a guess as to which ones?

I'm going with 3 and 10 if only because they sound like the kind of thing one might pick up at some festival kiosk after knocking back a couple of cold ones at the beer tent.

I'm guessing Chikita Violenta (I wanna know her!) and Jeffrey Lewis and The Junkyard. Just guessin'.

Very descriptive and imaginative rendition of my festival life, Toccata! But not quite right.

Wow. You are some kinda guessing ninja, Phlegmmy! You are absolutely correct. Well done, missy, I shall contact you about your prize.

Toccata said...

I want a recount. Darn, I thought about 15 only because it sounded country and I couldn't imagine you buying anything country. I should have known a song with the title Lettuce and Vodka would have been too good for you to pass up.

p.s. We have snow!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I actually buy lots of country music, Toccata! But I shall recount anyway.
.... nope, still wrong!
Snow? Yoiks, the flowers are not going to like that.

you'll be happy to know we got some snow last night and our power was out for several hours. I guess that's what we get for being smug

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I don't wish a power outage on anybody, Kelly. No, not even you. But that will learn ya to be so smug.

I assume that is a picture of your back yard. Wow! It looks very similar to my back yard! Who'd've thunk it? Grrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Did you have dinner outside last night, WC? I was too lazy to shovel off the patio furniture, so we ate in the kitchen.
