Friday Five : |ˈfrīdā – fīv| : On the sixth day of every week, I hit the shuffle button in iTunes and share the first five tracks and thought for each track. Sometimes there is a playlist involved, occasionally we’ll have a guest, but most of the time it’s just me. The rest is up to you, our friends and readers! Fire up the media player of your choice and share the first five random track of your shuffle in the comments.
I have so much I want to say about the following five tunes. Unfortunately, my schedule today won’t allow for that, so I’m reserving the right to come back and revisit this Friday Five when I have time later tonight. — MP
