I’ve been toying with the idea of just letting my iPod choose the setlist for a long while now. For a piece of tech I never really wanted (and still am not madly in love with) it does DJ pretty well. Whomever wrote the algorithm for selecting songs seems to have a similar mix-creation mind. Rarely do I have to fast forward songs of skip tracks…of course, it could just be I love my music collection that much.
Either way, I got in late last night from Ogie’s Trailer Park and, not ready for a 2am visit to slumberland, decided this was the evening for a full force sonic assault. I’d like to think it worked.
This show is different from most in that it’s fairly popular stuff (there’s even some hip-hop) and I didn’t spend hours weighing each lyric for tone and mood. It just is what it is: an experiment.
Give it a listen. Play the home game and send me a copy of your set list.
