ShuffleLog 19-Sept-06: Mid-Day Blockbuster

I had some high hopes for today's ShuffleLog. First, because I was heading to work around the terribly stress-free noontime commute hour (had a furniture delivery this morning, not a hangover). Second, well Hell, just look at the start of this thing...

ShuffleLog 19-Sept-06
  • Duran Duran, "The Reflex" - Seven and the Ragged Tiger (warning: their web site sucks)
  • Massive Attack, "Inertia Creeps" - Mezzanine (warning: their web site is almost unnavigable)
  • Oakland Faders, "Track 10" - Fader Nation Vol. 1 (Track 10 features a howling LL Cool J sample from "Mama Said Knock You Out")
  • Rakim, "Strong Island" - The Master
Strong start, to say the least. And then, when two of my favorite artists come up -- The Lovemakers and The Beastie Boys -- it all goes to Hell...
  • The Lovemakers, "We Should Be Taking Our Clothes Off" - Times of Romance
  • The Beastie Boys, "We Got The" - To The 5 Boroughs
  • Flipsyde, "Someday" - Single
Quite possibly two of the worst songs on their respective albums from The Lovemakers and The Beastie Boys. And that Flipside song, while a respectable effort outta Oakland, was a little disappointing after the confounding lyrics of "We Got The". Considering how much I dig -- and listen to -- those two artists, I'm surprised nothing more significant came up ("Root Down"? "Shake That Ass"? Hello?)

Of Note: Not a single electronic track, just when I declared that GU024 was going to make an appearance each and every day. No repeats or back-to-backs either.

The moral of this story? It's so much nicer to show up to work at 12:30pm (if you have to show up at all).
