Do the truffle shuffle

As always, as I listened to my iPod in my car today I became particularly bored with my overplayed playlists so I decided to put it on shuffle.

What came forth from the depths of my iPod's soul chilled me and thrilled me to my very core...

The following is the best shuffle mix I have ever heard:

  1. Coal to Diamonds- The Gossip
  2. Rise Up- Diane Birch
  3. Amish Paradise- Weird Al
  4. Algo Esta Cambiando- Julieta Venegas
  5. Headlock- Imogen Heap
  6. Semi-Charmed Life- Third Eye Blind
  7. Natalie Marie and 1cc- Spill Canvas
  8. Play for Today- The Cure
  9. Mind's Eye- dc Talk
  10. Siamese Twins- The Cure
  11. Skeleton Key- Margot & the Nuclear So and So's
  12. Landslide- Smashing Pumpkins
  13. Burritos- Sublime
  14. Know Your Onion!- The Shins
  15. Subbcultcha- Pixies
  16. I Just Can't Wait to be King- The Lion King (YES! hahaha)
  17. Dutch Courage- Spill Canvas
  18. No Good Deed- Idina Menzel, Wicked Soundtrack

Throw in about three skips over some Doors music (I really should just take them off...) and there you have it!

See, for me, what makes a shuffle mix great is when it is made up of songs that I know the words to. If I know the words to a song, no matter how terrible it is or how much I hate it, I will sing along and have a good time. I LOVE singing along to songs more than just about anything musical. I can't play an instrument, I can't read music, and I can't actually sing but when I am singing along to a good song, I feel like Pavarotti!

Oh, and the other thing that makes the shuffle feature great is that when you have an experience like mine, it makes you feel like your iPod is giving you a mix tape... Awww!

Tell me about a great shuffle/mix that you love!
