The Bookkitten's iPod playlist: soundtrack for a VGNO

This was the playlist I listened to during the VGNO tonight:

1. "Jerk It Out," the Caesars
2. "Are You Gonna Be My Girl," Jet
3. "A Little Less Conversation (JXL Remix)," Elvis Presley
4. "Superstar," Sheryl Crow
5. "Swingtown," Steve Miller Band
6. "Born to Be My Baby," Bon Jovi
7. "Born to Run," Bruce Springsteen
8. "California," Phantom Planet
9. "Candy Everybody Wants," 10,000 Maniacs
10. "Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon," Urge Overkill
11. "Hungry Heart," Bruce Springsteen
12. "Human Touch," Bruce Springsteen
13. "If I Had $1,000,000," Barenaked Ladies
14. "Like the Weather," 10,000 Maniacs
15. "Paranoid," Garbage
16. "Scattered Pieces," Domestic Problems
17. "Sweet Caroline," Neil Diamond
18. "Sweet Home Alabama," Lynryd Skynryd
19. "We Didn't Start the Fire," Billy Joel
20. "The Rising," Bruce Springsteen
21. "You Shook Me All Night Long," AC/DC
22. "Voices Carry," Til Tuesday

Funny...there was a lot of Jersey in this playlist. In addition to the obvious Springsteen and Bon Jovi, the Barenaked Ladies tune reminded me of when I saw them in concert. It was the summer of 2001, and my best friend and I, along with another mutual friend, went to the PNC Bank Arena--ahem, the Garden State Arts Center--to see them. Vertical Horizon opened.

That was a great summer. I'll have to blog about that someday...

It is really amazing how music has the ability to transport us to memories of another time or place. I have decided to start working on my music mix for Paris. I want to have music I associate with Paris so that when I listen to that music when I get home it will remind me of my time there.
