Still reaping the rewards of a new playlist and tons of new (old) music. The iPod is filled only with songs I rated, so this is sort of graded on a curve... No crap should show up.

1. "Jailbreak" - AC/DC "He made it out...[pause]...with a bullet in 'is back!' I grew up on the Brian Johnson AC/DC, but when you go back and hear one of the Bon Scott could really belt it out. 9

2. "International Bright Young Thing"" - Jesus Jones Yikes. If those two songs came on back to back at one of my post-college parties, it almost certainly would have triggered a brawl. Jarring. 5 (at best)

3. "Dizzy" - Green Apple Quick Step Eh, used to be into this album for a while. That won't likely happen again. 6

NOTE: Those are two pretty weak cuts after my bold prediction.

4. "Rosemary" - Lenny Kravitz A good song, but the iPod seems to want to make up for rocking too hard on the first one... 7

5. "New Jack Hustler" - Ice T "How can I be down?" Me owning this CD was always something of a joke. The joke's on Ice T, now that he plays a cop on Law & Order. Talk about sell-out. Still, a fun song. 7

6. "Mother Goose" - Jethro Tull Can you say "minstrel-y"? 8

7. "Help Yourself" - Portable A one-hit CMJ intrusion into my life. I like this song a lot. Especially in the car.8

8. "I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow" - Soggy Bottom Boys I love this song. From the "O Brother, Where Art Thou" soundtrack. Aside from the fact that I think it is tremendous music, it just makes me think of the movie, and that's a good thing. 9

9. "The River Rise" - Mark Lanegan Solid solo material from the lead singer of the Screaming Trees. Kind of atmospheric, starts out with whistling and music boxes. 7

10. "Greedy Fly" - Bush Don't know if these guys still exist as a band or not, but over the last few years, I kinda thought it would be cool if Gavin Rossdale announced that they would be changing the name of the band due to the embarrassment of name association... Okay song7

7.3 average And it started out so strong... Now that I think about it though, that is probably an accurate average for a songlist comprised of only stuff I like. 5 being the worst stuff and all...

P.S. "qzgjwvwi" in a serif font is easily the most difficult "word verification" I've ever encountered.
