Latest iTouch Shuffle Mix

After today’s looooonnnng day, it seems like talking about yesterday’s iTouch shuffle mix on a trek into downtown Toronto seems so….. well, yesterday.  But it’s a good, interesting mostly retro mix that I want to share with you.

Karyn White “Romantic” (1991)

Boys Brigade “Into The Flow” (1983)

matchbox twenty “How Far We’ve Come”

Royal Society “You Say (It Was Supposed To Be)”

Bram Tchaikovsky “Shall We Dance” (1981)

Elvis Costello & The Attractions “(I Don’t Want To Go To) Chelsea” (1979)

Gavin DeGraw “Follow Through”

OneRepublic “Stop & Stare”

Red Hot Chili Peppers “Scar Tissue” (1999)

Maxi Priest featuring Shaggy “That Girl” (1996)

Suzanne Vega featuring Joe Jackson “Left Of Centre” (1986)

Grace Jones “Private Life” (1980)

“Private Life” was a cover of a Chrissie Hynde tune from Grace’s CD of cover songs called Nightclubbing.  The video for that song wasn’t so hot but I did find the classic video for the now 61 year old Grace’s cover of Sting’s “Demolition Man” from the same album.  Enjoy!

Tuned-On! Top 300 of the 2000’s, Part 3 (200-151)

Let’s see – a few amazing dance anthems/comebacks (“It’s All True”, “Stamp Your Feet”, “Night Of My Life”), a solo debut (“Like I Love You”), two songs that re-entered my chart (“Last Train Home”, “You Want Me Don’t You” – the latter as a remix), doubles from Rufus Wainwright, Coldplay, Kanye West, and Marianas Trench, plus wondrous stuff from Tyler Hilton, iio, Darin, Blue Man Group, Mans Zelmerlow, Gary Go, Jamiroquai, Josh Kelley, and more!

Tuned-On! Top 300 of the 2000’s, Part I (300-251)

Yes it’s that time once in every ten years when I get to recap the list of my favourite songs of the decade.  Of course this list is likely to change even as early as next year, but it’s a snapshot of all that I thought was worthwhile in the decade.  In some ways it corresponds to my bi-weekly chart, but there have been some past favourites that I no longer play or hear as much as in the past, and those songs are not on this list.  This list is not exclusive to singles or songs on the radio…  there are many album tracks.

I will eventually post the full list in the sidebar to the right, but for now you’ll have to watch the blog each day this week for the first 200 songs.  The Top 100 will be revealed sometime during the week of December 28.

You can view the first 50 songs right here and of course by the tags you can see some of the artists who are on the list.

Enjoy, and post some comments about your favourite songs on the list!!
