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:

“Since U’ve Been Gone” by Kelly Clarkson (from Greatest Hits – Chapter One, 2012)

Oh. Em. Gee. You guys! Don’t you just, totally, grab your hairbrush and sing along?

“Darlin'” by The Beach Boys (from The Platinum Collection (disc 2), 2005)

As much as I love The Bech Boys, I greatly dislike this song.

“The Sign (Ultimix)” by Ace of Base (from The Sign, 1994)

Blech! I saw the sign. I saw the si-ei-ei-ei-eing. I considered sticking a fork in my ear after about four minutes. (This is an eight minute remix of the tune.)

“The Broken” by Coheed and Cambria (from Year of the Black Rainbow, 2010)

Yes! Easily one of the strongest tracks from the band’s weakest effort.

“Walk On” by U2 (from U218 Singles, 2006)

I’m amazed that U2 doesn’t shuffle up more often. No, seriously, my library contains an absurd amount of U2.

What’s on your shuffle today?
