The Friday Five

Friday Five : |ˈfrÄ«dā – fÄ«v| : 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:

Somedays won’t end ever and somedays pass on by, I’ll be working here forever, at least until I die…

“Phantom” by The Sisters of Mercy (from Some Girls Wander by Mistake, 1992)

My Popdose colleauge, Annie Zaleski, shared a collection of goth documentaries yesterday that sent me reeling back to the days where my wardrobe consisted of so many shades of black. While I never bought in to the goth culture wholesale, I certainly had an affinity for the music. This B-side to the 1983 12″³ release of “Alice” has a groove to it that just about anyone could get behind. Not a bad start

“Good Vibrations” by The Beach Boys (from The SMiLE Sessions (disc 1), 2011)

So, as this week’s Friday Five is the 10,000th post on Popdose, it is only appropriate that this tune be accompanied simply by this sentiment (say it with me, boys and girls): Fuck Mike Love.

“You’re All I Need to Get By” by Marvin Gaye (from The Complete Motown Singles, Volume 8: 1968 (disc 40), 2007)

“Texas Flood” by Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble (from Texas Flood – Legacy Edition (disc 1), 2013)

“Another Guy’s Song” by Julian Velard (from Mr. Saturday Night, 2011)

What’s on your shuffle today?
