First fifteen music meme

1) Turn on your MP3 player or music player on your computer.
2) Go to SHUFFLE songs mode.
3) Write down the first 15 songs that come up–song title and artist–NO editing/cheating, please.
  1. They Dance Alone – Sting (Nothing Like the Sun)
  2. I’m Scared – Duffy (Rockferry)
  3. Safe – Chris Squire (Fish out of Water)
  4. Soul Survivor – The Rolling Stones (Exile on Main Street)
  5. Sister Morphine – The Rolling Stones (Sticky Fingers)
  6. Fire – U2 (October)
  7. Hymn To Her – The Pretenders (The Singles)
  8. Lovers in Japan – Coldplay (Viva La Vida)
  9. Fever – Starsailor (Love is Here)
  10. Falling off the Face of the Earth – Neil Young (Prairie Wind)
  11. Single Handed Sailor – Dire Straits (Communique)
  12. Sit Yourself Down – Stephen Stills (Stephen Stills)
  13. Might Tell You Tonight – Scissor Sisters (Ta-Dah!)
  14. Brandenberg Concerto #3 in G – J.S. Bach
  15. Frozen Rivers – After The Fire (Der Kommissar)
Glad a bit of culture crept in there (14) and was getting worried when the Stones appeared two in a row (4 & 5). Some stuff here I haven’t listened to for ages (3 & 11) and a couple of favourites (6 & 12). No real embarrassments and yes, I do like the Scissor Sisters (13). (12) comes from one of my all time favourite albums.

Tagged by Paul Trathen with this music meme originally posted by Alice Smith.

Since Peter Banks’ band came in at (15) I tag him along with Jonathan Evens, Maggi Dawn, Simon Robinson and GerrardusA.

Shall take you up on this, but may have to exclude the chapters of the King James Version of the Bible, each of which is a track on my MP3 player.

Thanks for the credit Phil - I got it originally from Mark Oestricher in USA...! Fun hey!!

Excellent! As Gary said, I'll take you up on this but will exclude the Bible. As my wife and I share the library I'll also exclude her music. Nice to see Young Neil in your list :) (The security word verification for this comment was 'RINGO' - HA!)

I've also had a go. Glad to someone else has Starsailor on their list!
