And of course, I decided to take my ipod with me. And then there are choices - what is good walking-for-the-first-time-since-fall-and-still-trying-to-avoid-puddles-and-random-ice music? I decided to let the ipod just start playing songs in alphabetical order and see what I have.
I knew I had some eclectic music and hadn't actually considered how crazy it would seem to someone other than me. Here's what I heard today:
- Accidentally like a Martyr (Warren Zevon)
- Allison (Elvis Costello)
- two Israeli songs
- Across the River (Peter Gabriel)
- Act of Contrition (Madonna)
- Adayin (David Broza)
- Adeste Fideles (Frank Sinatra)
- and then two, not one, two Adon Olams. One by Josh Nelson and the other by the Sheba Choir. Interestingly enough, both are versions by black Jews. How many people do you know that have two versions of Adon Olam on their ipod? If it's more than one, and the other isn't a rabbi (or other clergy) I'm impressed (or scared for you).
