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.

The Five:

Editor’s Note: for those of you paying along at home, this week’s Friday Five is about, oh, twelve hours late. I apologize for the disruption in your regularly scheduled Friday Five. —MP
