Pandora Friday Random 10

Tryin’ something different this Friday; I’m letting Pandora* do the picking.  Here are the first 10 “thumbs-up” tracks to pop up on random setting:

  1. donnie irisAh! Leah!” – Donnie Iris, 20th Century Masters – The Millenium Collection: The Best of Donnie Iris
  2. “Lights over Roswell” – Djam Karet, The Devouring
  3. Fall on Me” – REM, The Best of the IRS Years: 1982-1987
  4. “Cynical Weathers” – Burnside Project, The Finest Example is You
  5. Song for America” – Kansas, Sail On: The 30th Anniversary Collection 1974-2004
  6. “Trans-Island Skyway” – Donald Fagan, Kamakiriad
  7. “Brain Damage” – Pink Floyd, Dark Side of the Moon
  8. Wouldn’t It Be Good” – Nik Kershaw, Greatest Hits
  9. “Take Me Home Tonight” – Eddie Money, Can’t Hold Back
  10. “Here I Wait” – GTR, GTR

* If you haven’t tried out Pandora, you need to give it a whirl.  You can create your own “stations” by identifying a song or performer, then Pandora will offer random tracks which are similar, based on many different criteria from it’s Music Genome.  You can tailor your station by adding more song(s)/performer(s), and by giving “thumbs-up” or “thumbs-down” as the track is played.  This is a GREAT way to find music that you might be unaware of but is similar to other music you like.  Give it a try!
