Sunday Shuffle #211

Every Sunday morning I get up, open iTunes, and enter shuffle mode. The first ten songs that come up (not counting my wife's music - the stuff we share is fair game) are what constitute the Sunday Shuffle. There are still unplayed songs from our hard drive getting zapped early last year, so don't mind the songs with a "1." My Sundays don't feel complete without this feature or watching Sports Reporters. So, let's get to the first shuffle of 2011...

1. Little Red Corvette/Prince (1)
2. I Can See Your Future/Belle and Sebastian (10)
3. Fiery Crash/Andrew Bird (1)
4. His Majesty Rides/Josh Rouse (2)
5. And It Spread/The Avett Brothers (4)
6. A Valley Son (Sparing)/Grandaddy (2)
7. Kiss On My List/Hall & Oates (1)
8. The Smartest Man Alive/The Broken West (2)
9. Song For Marion Brown/Superchunk (14)
10. One Tree Hill/U2 (1)

  1. I don't think people give the song "One Tree Hill" enough props. This is my favorite song off "The Joshua Tree" and the one song off the album in which the lyrics don't follow a real meter, but it's necessary for the song to work. Then again, I'm one of the kooky people who think the second side may be better than the first one.

  2. I think it's hard to argue with either side of that album (and look at us showing our ages by talking about album sides). "Running to Stand Still" is one of my favorites from that album.

Sunday Shuffle #413

Summer is here and I'm happy that it is. Jill finished school this week, but Grant and I have to go through Friday. I have the week off from my TTT course, so I'm going to catch up on some reading and TV. There was baseball I could watch yesterday and I can watch some again today, so you can bet I'll be doing that. Few things bring me joy more than baseball and a book in my lap for between innings.

Sunday Shuffle #467

It's hard to believe we're already the last Sunday in September, especially with how hot it has been around here for the last week plus. I have units planned deep into October, though, so it shouldn't be that hard for me to fathom. I think the rhythm of school from the teaching side is messing with me a bit. That's fine. Anyway, I hope you have had a good couple weeks since the last time I posted.
