Just a little refresher on the Rules of the Random Ten:*
Hit “shuffle” or “random” on your favorite digital music player, be it on your PC, your iPod or some other device, and report on the first ten songs that it spits out. No skipping the embarrassing stuff. Post your list here in the comments, or tell us where we can find them.

*Rules are made to be broken. If you want to skip a over few songs because your “random” list has five in a row by the same band, that’s cool. The lists are more interesting if they have more than two artists. Or if you want to do something completely different, just say so.
