Next 3 Songs in Shuffle Mode

Monday Rant
There are some things that just have to be said – it could be because it makes you crazy, it’s a particularly helpful insight, or just a story you want to share.  I have plenty.  Here is one.  I welcome you to leave yours or your reaction in the comments section.

I love my Sony Walkman. And for no other reason than sheer curiosity (and I'm assuming you are curious), here are the next three songs playing in 'shuffle' mode:

1) Neil Diamond "Dry Your Eyes" from his "Beautiful Noise" album (1976). A great song from an awesome album, Neil Diamond was a staple in our home growing up as my older brother was a huge fan. Dry Your Eyes was performed by Neil Diamond with The Band in Martin Scorsese's film, The Last Waltz.

Best chart position: Did not chart/not released

Best line from the song:
"Right through the lightning and the thunder
to the dark side of the moon,
to that distant falling angel that descended much too soon"

2) R.E.M. "Shiny Happy People" from their "Out of Time" album (1991). A favorite in the college years, R.E.M. contributed many great songs to the soundtrack of an era.

Best chart position: #10 U.S.

Best line from the song:
"Everyone around, love them, love them
put it in your hands, take it, take it
There's no time to cry, happy, happy"

3) Van Halen "Jump" from their "MCMLXXXIV" album (1983). EXCELLENT! What else is there to say? Fun to sing along with, fun to (try and) dance to; it still makes me crank it up anytime it comes on. Van Halen at its commercial finest. For a time at NBA games, it was the theme song of the opening tip.

Best chart position: #1 (5 weeks) U.S.

Best line from the song:
"And I know, baby, just how you feel
You got to roll with the punches and get to what's real"

I hope you enjoyed this trip down the mp3 lane. Sing - it'll make you feel better!
