iPod, myPod - turn the damn thing onPod

Can you believe I bought this in May? Mark and I bought a mini iPod each in the US. After two days of landing back in the UK, Mark had all his fave tunes on his blue baby. I took mine out of the box this week. And yes, I had to dust it off. I haven't had a moment spare since those sunny days in Clermont, FA. Boy - I wish I had of opened it earlier. I honestly thought it was going to take an age to upload all my "boingy" tunes - rather like my old MP3. I bought an iRock 2 years ago and lets just say I could only get 30 songs on it in about 2 hours upload time. So after uploading the entire back catalogue of the Manic Street Preachers, various throwback tunes of the 80's and some random 50's NY cafe style jazz - Im fit to pound the treadmills with more gusto. I do have a weird taste in music from a wide genre but thats me - weird.
But fully wired up.
And whats with the Q-tip style earphones - I just can't hack them. If I wanted to have my ear wax gouged out by two rubber nodules every time I go to the Gym, Id take a shovel and do it myself. So selfishly I bought a pair of Koss soft padded ear muff type phones - man, the quality is earth shattering.

Im going to do an Anna now and have a question a day. What's the top 5 tunes that you would put on your iPod? Answers on a Making Memories metal rim tag to the usual.

Ooh, must get Colin to get me one of those so that I can use it on our cross trainer that he's just splurged out on (it'll be a one-minute wonder).

My top five would be:

Wonderful Land - The Shadows
Olivers Army - Elvis Costello
All Along The Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix
Persuasion - Tim Finn
The Ladder Song - Citizen Band

See, I have weird taste too. A top ten would be better, mefinks.

Cripes, I don't know where to start, but I'll have a go!!

1. Sound of Silence - but off Paul Simon's 'Live Rhymin' album; it's a gospel version, and it is abso-bloomin-lutely fabulous - very atmospheric, totally moving.
2. Go Your Own Way - Fleetwood Mac - I lubs Fleetwod Mac - could have picked any number of theirs.
3. You're The Voice - John Farnham - a stonkingly fantastic tune.
4. Beds Are Burning - Midnight Oil - a rockin' anthem!
5. When Doves Cry - Prince - takes me back...

But ask me again tomorrow, and this selection will have totally changed :D - apparently, I'm getting one of these babies for Christmas!
