Five for Friday

No Doubt the Singles 1992-2003An "Occassional Series" here at Inspired by Daniel at Alien Soil, I fire up Media Player on random and post the first 5 songs here.

Want to listen? Head over to my profile and look for the songs tagged #five4friday. Sorry, not going to take the time today. If you miss that, let me know, 'cause I'm thinking of dropping that altogether.

  1. No Doubt - Running from The Singles 1992-2003
    my wife bought this CD, and I'm glad she did. Some good tunes, including this ballad.
  2. Lily Allen (DOCTOR ROSEN ROSENRx) - The Fear from It's Not Me it's Dr Rosen Rosen
    This is a download that I found through the daily World Cafe email from WXPN. I love the Lily Allen song, and this mellow remix is pretty nice alternative.
  3. REO Speedwagon - Ridin' the Storm Out from The Hits
    Showing the limts of my collection, this cong came up once before back in March. This live version is better than the studio by a long shot.
  4. Crash Test Dummies - Here I Stand Before Me from God Shuffled His Feet
    Odd but catchy tune by a unique and fun band. This guy has an amazingly deep voice for a pop singer. I love it.
  5. Lemuel Sheppard - Bad Man from WCBE Vol. 6 - Mixx on the Fly
    Great traditional blues tune. Opening lyrics: "Well, I went into a bar / tried to start a fight / couldn't find nobody who want to die tonight / I'm a bad man / you best leave me be / I'm a real bad man / didn't your mama tell you 'bout me?" Cool stuff.

Your turn, fire up your MP3 player, put it on random and give me yours in the comments. (Why doesn't anyone ever do this? Come on, you know you want to.)
