Random play

One of the best things about MP3 players is the random shuffle feature. Some people claim that their devices are in sync with them to a preternatural degree (don't these people choose the songs, themselves-duh!), but I'm not here to debate that. They do however, sometimes cook up a particularly heavenly run of songs that have nothing to do with each other, but somehow seem just right. While walking on the treadmill, I heard, in succession:
  • Looking for someone like you - Kelly Willis
  • Ordinary Joe - Terry Callier
  • Off the record - My Morning Jacket
  • Strawberry Road - Sam Phillips
  • My heart is the bums on the street - Marah
  • When I was cruel - Elvis Costello
Anyway, it was pretty awesome. That's all.
