Everybody play the game.

The inspiration for today's post comes from one of those lame "use your shuffle play to create a soundtrack for your life" memes. So, I took the first 18 covers to hit my shuffle play and plugged them in as appropriately as I could. Or something. I quite frequently use my shuffle play to decide my posts, so it's not really that exciting. Enjoy!

Waking Up:

Hello sir Lobstar !

I have just discovered your blog, I find it fantastic.
As you I am keen on covers. So I have spent a part of my afternoon surfing on your site to see what kind of wonders you recommanded...

... And I must admit that I am very sad about this "shuffle" post !

Do you you think it would be possible (let's say for X-mas) to post-it again for the copy-right-?-latly-adopters like me ? ;)

Thanks for all.
Your Rss is in my feader !
