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:

“Song and Dance Man” by Warrant (from Cherry Pie, 1990)

Late ’80s – early ’90s ‘hair’ metal hasn’t aged particularly well, and this is no exception to that.

“Love Will Keep Us Together” by Jimmy Scott & Flea (from Lounge-A-Palooza, 1997)

Remember the ’90s when we all thought mid-century lounge music was awesome? We were so dumb back then.

“Drive” by Ziggy Marley (from 50 First Dates, 2004)

Nope. Nu-uh. Not gonna do it.

“They Don’t Want Music (feat. James Brown)” by The Black Eyed Peas (from Monkey Business, 2005)

Dammit, this just went from bad to worse. The Godfather of Soul is rolling in his grave.

“Last” by Gravity Kills (from Gravity Kills, 1996)

Oh, hey… remember the ’90s, when every industrial band with a halfway decent hook got a record deal? We were so dumb back then.

Man, this was one uninspired Friday Five. You guys will have to do better!

What’s on your shuffle today?
