No longer cool

Just found out through PZ that Lauren at Feministe says the Random 10 meme is no longer cool, because some prominent blogger or other used the idea without crediting the source.

Since it's no longer cool, it's safe for me to join in.

The idea: open your iPod or iTunes or other, inferior mp3 player and set it to random play, then list the first ten songs that appear. Here's mine:

The Ocean (Dar Williams)
Extraordinary (Liz Phair)
San Juan Wayno (Calendar Music In The Central Andes)
Piri Wango Iya (Geoffrey Oryema)
Ergue-te Ao Sol (Madredeus)
Nil Na La Solas (Solas)
Hamdouchi (Majid Bekkas)
Does Your Heart Beat For Me (Patsy Cline)
Shaggy Dad (Lightnin' Hopkins)
Anna (Kaouding Cissoko)

Hmmm. Only one that's at all embarrassing.

What - Patsy Kline? ...and you do have Madredeus, but that's not from my CD - I have Antologia.

I have nothing written after 1856.
