The Maker’s iPod playlist

A few weeks ago, I bought the Maker a used iPod Shuffle, the one that looks kind of like a pack of Wrigley’s Spearmint gum.  This was partly because I knew he’d enjoy having his own (both of his brothers already have a Nano) and partly to keep him from always borrowing mine.

He does in fact love it, and spends a fair amount of time listening and singing along to his playlist, which I reproduce here for your perusal and commentary (songs are in order of most favorite to least favorite, though this order changes periodically):

Star Wars (Main Title)    John Williams
Rabbit Run    Eminem
8 Mile    Eminem
Lose Yourself    Eminem
Down In Flames    Relient K
Jesus Freak      dc Talk
May the Horse Be With You    Relient K
Pressing On       Relient K
We Will Rock You    Warrant
Pinball Wizard    Elton John
Touch Me    The Doors
The Anthem      Good Charlotte
Penny & Me      Hanson
Get Out Of Denver    Bob Seger
God Of Wonders       Third Day
God of Wonders       Chris Tomlin
Kung Fu Fighting    Carl Douglas
Blue Moon    The Marcels
Rock And Roll    Led Zeppelin
Raised in Harlem    Michael Tait/T-Bone/Donnie
Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo    Rick Derringer
Trashed         Rob Rocker
Turn! Turn! Turn!    The Byrds

I will readily admit that my musical tastes inflenced his selection of most of these songs, though I want to be perfectly clear that he found Kung Fu Fighting all on his own.  And yes, the Eminem tunes are the PG-versions.

    Please let me have this child for a while! There’s no classical music on that list!!!!! I did, however, recognize the Star Wars one!

    I’m fine, thanks. I always preferred his work with that other band better.
    Still, it’s just so amusingly random admist all the other colours and shapes.

  3. What a funky list! I like the mix.

    The Maker is a big Rob Rocker fan, as are most who have heard his stuff. Let me know if you want me to hook you up with a RR Greatest Hits compilation.
