Music Meme'd by Mom

I've just been tagged by (Ortho)Mom(Of4) to do a certain musical meme that she says has been floating around the Blogosphere, but until she tagged SEVEN PEOPLE AT A TIME(!) had not yet entered the Judeoblogosphere (insert comment about hhuqot ha’umot or something here).

Directions:
  1. Turn on your mp3 player.
  2. Hit shuffle.
  3. Put the first fifteen songs that come up in a post. No matter how embarassing. No cheating!


Okay, here goes...
1. My Girlfriend's Deadthe Vandals*
2. AdrianJewel — Pieces Of You
3. NyaraiThomas Mapfumo and Blacks Unlimited — Worlds Of Music (Disk 1)*
4. Ahavat YisraelBlue Fringe — Live in Silver Spring
5. New IntroBuffy the Vampire Slayer Cast — Buffy - Once More With Feeling***
6. Different TownTBC / They Might Be Giants — HomestarRunner****
7. Erev (ערב)Rita
8. Just A GirlNo Doubt — Tragic Kingdom
9. AcheinuKaskeset — Made From The Best Jews On Earth*****
10. SixteenNo Doubt — Tragic Kingdom
11. So AloneThe Offspring — Smash
12. Engal KalyanamM.S. Viswanathan and Vali — Worlds Of Music (Disk 2)
13. There I GoJason Spitz — Anything You Want******
14. CeciliaSimon & Garfunkel — Simon & Garfunkel's Greatest Hits*******
15. Build Me Up, ButtercupVibrations — We Can't Afford Instruments


Notes:
*A brilliantly funny band I was introduced to in college, by MPMYF and the guy cropped out of my present profile photo.
**A set of three CDs that came with a textbook for a "Musics of the World" class I took in college
***The Buffy musical episode. Ya gotta problem with Buffy?
****HomestarRunner for my friend PomestarTunner!
*****Mmmm... Jewish Acapella music...
******Young (Jewish) folk singer my brother met at a Hillel something or other years ago
*******First CD my family ever owned!

Postscript:
Where's all the rap? All the rock? All the rap-rock? The contemporary Israeli music?

Just so yall don't have a skewed impression of my musical tastes, I recently downloaded seven songs:
JerusalemDan Bern — Dan Bern
Lighters UpLil' Kim — Naked Truth
An Mhaighdean MharaAltan — Island Angel
No More DramaMary J. Blige — No More Drama
The AnthemGood Charlotte — The Young and the Hopeless
Numb / EncoreLinkin Park and Jay-Z — Collision Course
Ue wo Muite Arukō (上を向いて歩こう) [I Look Up When I Walk] / "Sukiyaki"
  — Sakamoto, Kyū (坂本九)

Back of the hill is correct; MP3 players are chukot hagoyim.

Mar:

who says i was quoting that pasuq? ;-)

tBotH:

it's a computer program that plays MP3 files. i've heard of people carrying around shiny little boxes and calling them mp3 players but that's obviously a dirty sleight-of-hand trick.

MCAryeh & TuMChic:

thanks!

Jameel:

oh go back to your muqaat‘a, mr. chukot hagoyim :-P

Do you have Tropical Lazor Beams?

Habib:

interesting!
I wonder how that thing went.

HsychoRoddler:

Nope, i do not. And they frighten me. I have a bunch of songs and i'm not sure where exactly they're from, or where i got them from. They might be from the CD... "Different Town", though, comes straight from a sbemail, though!

Steg, no access to your e-mail from work (I'm not set up for Outlook here). So this is your weekly Radio Reminder--Fudge's show starts in 15 minutes! Eek--I'm outta here!

THANK YOU SO MUCH SHIRA!!!

Unfortunately i'm about to head upstate for Shabbos, so i'll be in transit and unable to listen. Sorry Fudge!
