What Comes Up On Your iTunes or iPod Shuffle?

Here is a fun idea. Go to your itunes or ipod. Put it on shuffle and see the first 5 songs that emerge. You can tell a lot about a person based on the music they listen to. Give it a shot and report your findings in the comment section if you want.

Here are my five from the 14.3 days of continuous music currently in my iTunes library:

1. Hear The Call of The Kingdom - Keith and Kristen Getty
2. Losing a Whole Year - Third Eye Blind
3. Mandolin Rain/Black Muddy River - Bruce Hornsby
4. Pride and Joy - Stevie Ray Vaughn
5. Das Wohltemperierte Klavier: Book 1, BWV 846-869: Prelude in E Minor BWV 855 - J.S. Bach, performed by Keith Jarrett.

(HT: Worship Trench)

I don't have an iPod (what a Luddite, I know!), but here are the CDs that I've been listening to over the past couple of weeks:

Caedmon's Call-- "Chronicles" (Derek Webb and co.-- so good!)

Norma Jean- "Redeemer" (BRUTAL punk-like stuff!)

As Cities Burn-- "Son, I Loved You At Your Darkest" (similar to NJ)

Earth, Wind, and Fire-- "Gratitude" (FUNK!)

Abraham the Poor-- "Pumpkin Patch EP" (from DSC-- my church-- and very, very good!)

Soular-- all songs (also local talent from ABQ and DSC!)

Extol-- "The Blueprint Dives" (scary, bracing, beautiful, *and* God-glorifying!)

Serena Maneesh (trance-spacey-pop-death metal, and I think, masterminded by a Christian!)

Chicago Transit Authority-- self-titled (the band that became Chicago, back when they used to rock hard *and* do free-jazz work-outs!)

The Airborne Toxic Event-- self-titled (brilliant, stirring, anthemic, and sadly, profane in a few songs)
