Random Roulette - Stick or Twist.

In all the time I've been blogging (not quite a year yet) I haven't once loaded up a randomizer/shuffle post - mainly because my player will cough up chunks of clunk from the catalogue when it's under pressure. So this time I set myself some rules...

List the first five songs and get 1 point for every good song.

Then - either stick if it's a good hand, or twist for another 5 points and repeat if you dare.

However should a clunker come into play - that's it. Bust. Game Over - lose all your points.

So, how many hands could I do before going bust? Well I make this three twists without any howlers so decided to stick at 15 points...

Little Rose Little - 'You've Got The Love'(Talcum Soul, Vol. 3)
The Upsetters - Return Of Django(The Trojan Records Sampler 2002)
David Bowie - 'Beauty And The Beast'(Stage)
Small Faces - 'Tin Soldier'(The Darlings Of Wapping Wharf Launderette)
Toni Daley - 'Like The Big Man Said'(Take My Tip)

Dub Specialist - 'Bionic Dub'(Mojo Presents: Studio One Selector)
Sex Pistols - 'EMI Unlimited Edition'(Sex Pistols Box Set, Disc 1)
John Martyn - 'Solid Air'(Solid Air)
Azymuth - 'Tarde'(Aguia Nao Come Mosca)
Eno - 'I'll Come Running'(Vocal Box Set)

Corciolli - 'Ponta Da Praia'(Electro Bossa)

The Beatles - 'When I Get Home'(Something New)
Gladys Knight & The Pips - 'Gladys Knight & The Pips'(Motown Chartbusters, Vol. 2)
Jim Stafford - 'Spiders and snakes'(Spiders and Snakes)

mmm, seems a bit complicated to me. And who's determining what's a good song here?!

My ipod shuffle gives me:

Un Poison violent, c'est ca l'mour - Serge Gainsbourg (Anna soundtrack)
Do you realize?? - The Flaming Lips (Yoshimi Battles the Pink robots)
So Long Marianne - Leonard Cohen (The Songs of Leonard Cohen)
Sometimes - Erykah Badu (Baduizm)
40 Past Midnight - Ocean Colour Scene (Moseley Scoals)

See, I could keep going forever!

I love the fact that you came up with 2 Sex Pistols tracks and John Martyn!

It does seem a bit of a fumble in the re-reading. My criteria for a bad song was completely subjective - if you reach for the fast forward or a song you'd be embarrased by pops up that's it - clunker, game over.

That's a dandy selection Cocktails, very cosmopolitan.

I only found out recently John Lydon was a John Martyn fan in his pre Pistols period.
