The Lola Shuffle - "The *Has This Been The Longest Week Ever Or What?* Edition"
I mean seriously! By Tuesday I had already had a long week! I think it's because we were programmed during our oh so important formative years to expect a 3 month summer vacation - so when June rolls around, our minds, bodies and souls are ready for 3 months of mindless, for the most part unplanned activity, or non-activity depending on our mood. Yeah, that's it.
So Lola, get out of your "I should be on summer vacation" stupor and shuffle us up a nice list...
- I Shot the Sheriff - Eric Clapton (while this is good, I prefer Marley's version)
- Kiss - Tom Jones (conversely to the above, I prefer Tom's cover version to Prince's original - this one sounds naughtier, in a good way)
- In The Navy - The Village People
- I Could Fall In Love With You - Erasure (I totally credit my colleague Sarah for turning me on to Erasure. Although I'm not quite the pathological stalker fan she is, I do enjoy some of their music. I really like this one.)
- Dancing In The Dark - Bruce Springsteen (Forever a classic - always makes me smile)
- Under African Skies - Paul Simon (Great song!)
- Volcano - Jimmy Buffett (Fun!)
- Oye Isabel - The Iguanas (an old favorite)
- Pinball Wizard - The Who (Ummm...Lola - what have you been doing? Have you been "fraternizing" with strange iPods? Or, heaven forbid - a Shuffle! I didn't know how this "got in" to Lola! Good song though...)
- My Life - Billy Joel
Good job Lola - but we still need to solve the "Pinball Wizard" mystery, young iPod!
Enjoy your weekend - I'm going to pretend it's a 3-month summer vacation...(sigh)
