    Here's a "meme" that's been doing the rounds of the blogs last year, I thought I'd resurrect it here. Apologies if it's already been done, but I searched and didn't find a relevant thread.

    What you have to do is go to your chosen music player on your PC, or maybe even your iPod or other portable music player, and get it set to "shuffle mode". Then list the first ten tracks that it shows - no cheating, you have to show even the embarrassing stuff too!

    Mine were:

    Killing Joke - Asteroid
    System of a Down - Psycho
    Bruce Dickinson - King in Crimson
    Feeder - Just The Way I'm Feeling
    The Vandals - Don't Stop Me Now <-- ****** excellent!
    Black Candy - Downfall
    Bush - Mouth (The Stingray Mix)
    Raging Speedhorn - Chronic Youth
    Metallica - Stone Cold Crazy
    AC/DC - House of Jazz <-- not their best track ever

    Good job it didn't find the Bon Jovi ;)

    My media player is Rhythmbox 0.8.8 on my Ubuntu installation (don't like Windows).

    Anyone else?

    I like the idea...but I just fried my MP3 player (forgot I needed a step down transformer here in the UK)

    Ouch! But why would you need a step-down transformer? We have 240 volts, whereas the US is 120V???

    That takes me back! Does anyone still have it on their concert programme? It was all the rage about 10 years ago or so. Great piece but I can't see it making its way back on the list somehow now!
