The Shuffle

enlight24I decided to charge up my Ipod Classic today for the first time in a long while, over a year, maybe two. I can’t remember what is on it. I have a reasonable idea of course but I’ve completely blanked the disc and re-loaded several times in the past to remove a lot of spurious tracks that I never listened to, it’s a 120GB so it holds a lot of junk if you let it.

So I set it to Shuffle this morning and for absolutely no reason at all I began writing down the tracks it played, and this isn’t the first time I’ve done that, which is worrying. Anyway, as I’d taken the time to write them down I’m going to share them. There’s no editing or omissions in an attempt to look cooler, after all, I am either the coolest guy on the planet (according to my dog) or well past the age where being cool is a thing (ask anybody else other than my dog). Here we go then:
