Uncool is so HOT!

I had the shuffle set to random, I fired up the iPod and I listened for four and half hours straight. Below is the result of my second experiment with the randomness of the iPod shuffle setting.

Before you look, I still swear I have somewhat better taste in music than what appears on the list below. Believe it or not there actually is music on my iPod that was written and produced in this century.

I believe the next logical entry will be to analyze how I became so old so fast.

Dang, girl, should I be worried that I love so many of these songs? I was just wondering yesterday if I should make the 99 cent iTunes commitment to a Terrence Trent d'Arby tune...
