iPod Random 10 8-24-07

Karen’s Random Tens are usually much more interesting than mine, so check that out. (Her blog has inspired both this meme and “Wiki Wednesday.”)

I’m not sure what’s happened in the last couple of weeks, but the interference with my car iPod adapter, which goes through my FM tuner, seems to have disappeared. This is what I listened to on the way to work this morning, with comments:

“Stupid Girls,” Pink (she doesn’t want to be one – you go, girl!)
“Smart Woman (In a Real Short Skirt),” Jimmy Buffett (anything Jimmy is a great lead-in to the weekend)
“Essence,” Lucinda Williams (found you a smart woman, Jimmy!)
“The Tigers Have Spoken,” Neko Case (and another one!)
“Rocky Top,” The Flying Burrito Brothers (for the first time in 5 years, Chris probably won’t be in Neyland Stadium during football season, but still – GO VOLS!)
“Borrowed Bride,” Old 97’s (“life comes apart at the seams, it seems” – one of my favorite lyrics, and so often true)
“Don’t Let the Sun Catch You Crying,” Gloria Estefan (a very soothing interpretation of the British Invasion-era classic)
“Like a Prayer,” Madonna (smart woman? savvy, at least…)
“Cruel to Be Kind,” Nick Lowe (loved this song since 1980!)
“Jumpin’ East of Java,” Brian Setzer Orchestra (swinging my way into the parking garage at work)

  1. I finally had to get rid of my iTrip because of so much interference in the car. I bought a little cassette-deck adapter thingy at Radio Shack and it works GREAT!

  2. Karen – My husband has one of those too, and it works well. My car doesn’t have a cassette deck, though (just a CD player), so I’ve got the FM adapter. Still safer than driving with headphones on :-).
