iPod Shuffle: Part 11

In an effort to listen to songs that don't get much intentional play on my iPod, I present Part 11 of my 'iPod Shuffle.'  So, play along with me:  Select 'shuffle' on your mp3 player, write down the first 10 songs that come up and listen to them.  No cheating!  Here are the 10 songs that came up for me.  Please share your ten in the comments section below.  Hopefully you'll hear something cool that you haven't heard before.  Click on those little players to hear samples of the songs and to purchase on Amazon MP3.  - Bret

Bauhaus - Kick In The Eye
     Bauhaus were innovators, fusing rock with funk, reggae/dub and bossanova.
Sinead O'Connor - Nothing Compares 2 U
Porno For Pyros - Tahitian Moon
     A stellar track from Good God's Urge.
Chris Bell - You And Your Sister
     Beautifully sad.  From the late member of Big Star's solo album.
Michael Cashmore - Broken Seas
     From the Current 93 / Antony & The Johnson collaborator's 2006 debut.
Lucinda Williams - Right In Time
     I really dig this opening track from 1998's Car Wheels On A Gravel Road.
Pixies - The Happening
     I need to start listening to the Bossanova album again.  This is cool.
Emmylou Harris - Goodbye
     Amazing cover of one of my favorite Steve Earle songs.
U2 - Slow Dancing
     A cool B-side written for Willie Nelson to sing.
The Police - Synchronicity II
     Solid track from The Police.  The video is pretty out of control.  LOL
