ShuffleLog 29-Sept-06: We Have A Repeat, I Repeat, We Have A Repeat!

Time to start checking the schedule for trains to AC.

Not one, not two, but three repeats today.

ShuffleLog 29-Sept-06
  • Bloc Party, "Helicopter" - Silent Alarm
  • Foo Fighters, "In Your Honor" - In Your Honor (Disk 1)
  • Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, "Heavy Metal" - Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
  • AIR, "Venus" - Talkie Walkie
  • The Beastie Boys, "Song For The Man" - The Sounds of Science (Disk 1)
  • Crazy Town vs. Steve Miller, "Tipsy Butterfly" - SixxMixx
  • The Streets, "Who Dares Wins" - Original Pirate Material
  • Subtonal, "Shibuya", 24:7 (Disk 2)
Geez, where to start?
  1. Jen and I went to see Clap Your Hands Say Yeah at Rumsey Playfield in Central Park last night. The last song they played? "Heavy Metal". Which first showed up in this pathetic little project a week ago.
  2. There's only been one other AIR song to grace our ShuffleLog presence. You guessed it: "Venus". That's lightning striking twice.
  3. Nothing terribly noteworthy about "Shibuya", either musically, philosophically or ShuffleLogically. But the trifecta of repeats occurs three months from the last day that I spent in California before moving to New York.
Yeah, I got nothin'.

Remember, a song has a .161% chance of even being played. What are the odds that it is repeated? What are the odds that 3 out of 8 songs in a single day are repeats? There have been 84 songs played since I started this whole mess. 84 out of 622, 13.5% of all songs. So far, we've had 4 repeats and a single album hogging 11% of all ShuffleLog tracks (Fader Nation Vol. 1).

Dammit, why did I skip Calculus in high school?
