6:50am's Attempt At Boredom Relief

Well, I'm officially nocturnal. I've just set my iTunes to shuffle and set play. Here's what it gave me, warts and all. Mostly warts, probably. *clicks*
1Elliott Smith
Good To Go

I'm not a massive fan of his self-titled but I really quite like this. It's one of his defeatist whisper-rants. Pretty good start.
2Less Than Jake
The Rest Of My Life

Haha. This is the ONLY LTJ song I have on my iTunes. I love it. Catchy as f**k and I adore the lyrics and drumbeat. Weirdly, it's a pretty depressing song, but it always makes me feel better about s**t. Cool.
3Hanson
Lost Without Each Other

YES! Here we go! This is more like the kind of thing I expected to crop up on a shuffle list. Shameful and bouncy teenie bopper music. Don't lie. You love it.
4The Format
A Save Situation

Haha. Apt title since this list has just been saved BIGTIIIIME. Dog Problems is a better album than I&L but I love both and the vocals on this track are awesome. Understated and beautiful.
5Garth Brooks
Friends In Low Places

I hate this. I like a couple of his tracks, the more ballady stuff, so I downloaded his Best Of. Mostly a mistake although his cover of To Make You Feel My Love is pretty decent.
6Anberlin
Paperthin Hymn

Yesssssss. Good stuff. "Who's gonna call on Sunday morning?! Who's gonna drive you home?!" Power. Energy. Anger. TUNE.
7Sonic Youth
Bubblegum

Intriguing. I forgot I had this, 'cause I still haven't gotten hold of any of their full albums, which I really should. Pretty disappointing alongside Kissability or Teenage Riot which are the other tracks of theirs I have on my iTunes. Meh.
8The Clash
Wrong 'Em Boyo

F**king song. I'm not sure I 'get' London Calling but this song turns me on big time. Good choosing, iTunes.
9The Arcade Fire
Neighborhood #2 (Laika)

What an album. What a band. WHAT a song. Love the distorted vocals and the concept of the song. Not as good as Tunnels. Easily brilliant though.
10Jack's Mannequin
Spinning

Everything in Transit was good but The Glass Passenger is actually my favourite JM album. Swim is such a good song; this is up there as well, catchy as hell chorus. Fantastic song.
11Pink
There You Go

Yep. There You Go. Next track please. *skips*
12Embrace
Come Back To What You Know

I have a soft spot for these guys. They can construct one hell of a melody and I'm a sucker for piano-pop. The way this climaxes about 3 times is just incredible.
13Avril Lavigne
Girlfriend

I have this album. And I like it. F**k you.
14Eminem
When I'm Gone

The song he retired on. Oh wait he's back. Oh well! One of the heavier songs of his later LPs, lots of emotional weight behind it. I just think the chorus is underwhelming, but the verses more than carry the song.
15Explosions In The Sky
It's Natural To Be Afraid

AOASIME is a bit disappointing in my opinion, and this track starts promisingly but never really hits me like anything off The Earth Is Not... or The Rescue. It's still decent, though.
16Joy Division
Love Will Tear Us Apart

Ha. Classic. What else can I say?
17The Decemberists
Of Angels And Angles

This is just beautiful. If you want to get a girl to fall in love with you, learn to play this. Perfect end to an album. Near-perfect acoustic song.
18Yellowcard
Down On My Head

Pop-punk is all over my iPod. Yellowcard are actually my most-listened to band on last.fm which is bullsh*t but only because when I listened to Viva La Vida non-stop last.fm wasn't working. Catchy as hell chorus. Enjoying it.
19Los Campesinos!
Ways To Make It Through The Wall

Meh. This is alright. Hand-claps and catchy guitars and teenage lyrics all over it. I just can't get too excited about these guys because of Johnny Foreigner. Although this is fairly good. Hmmm. Maybe I should listen to them again. JoFo, though...if you haven't heard them, DO IT. Soon. Now.
20The Gaslight Anthem
The '59 Sound

Such a generic ending in terms of my music :( I love this album & band but this is nowhere close to the best track on it. It still plays well though.
