15 songs on the iTunes playlist

...I just posted this note over at my Facebook page. I figure it would be just as good here, too...

...pilfered from Lisa Mickey Hard-Knox Fairclough: 

(1) Turn on your MP3 player or music player on your computer.
(2) Go to SHUFFLE songs mode.
(3) Write down the first 15 songs that come up--song title and artist--NO editing/cheating, please.
(4) Choose 15 people to be tagged. It is generally considered to be in good taste to tag the person who tagged you.If I tagged you, it's because I'm betting that your musical selection is entertaining, or at least amusing. To do this, go to "NOTES" under tabs on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, enter your 15 Shuffle Songs, Tag 15 people (under the post) then click Publish

...I'm giving y'all some bracing space so that you can get yourself ready for the first title on my list; just my luck, I get one that a lot of people would actually consider to be dirtier than even Zappa's "Dinah-Moe Humm" ;-) ...


1. "Come in my Mouth" by Tobie Columbus (from the Original Cast album of the 1974 Off-Broadway musical Let My People Come -- I DID NOT CHEAT ON THIS LISTING! IT'S ACTUALLY WHAT POPPED UP FIRST ON THE PLAYLIST!!! HONEST!!!!!)
