my international music collection
3:45 PM
so, i did something i don't do often: put my main music collection on random/shuffle. usually when i do shuffle it's on a smaller subset of my music, say, music i got in the last month, or something like that.

the first 10 results: most non-USA music. neat. here they are, with country designation.

Skatenigs - Hoosegow (USA)
Pitchshifter - Skin Grip (UK)
Roots Manuva - Awfully Deep (UK)
Benny Benassi - B-Tone (Italy)
Dokaka - Smells Like Teen Spirit (Japan)
Nancy Ajram - Sana Wara Sana (Year After Year) (Lebanon)
Neil Hamburger - He Wasn't One (USA)
Nitzer Ebb - K.I.A. (UK)
Queen - Princes of the Universe (UK)
Robert Normandeau - Éclats de voix (Canada)
Final stats: UK 4, USA 2, and one each Italy, Japan, Lebanon & Canada. That's a pretty good mix, I'd say. Maybe i'll update this as shuffle continues.

anyone else? this could be a good meme, right? :)

UPDATE: next 10:

Dr. Seuss - The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, side 1 (USA)
Les Rita Mitsouko - Petite Fille Princesse (France)
Momus - Don't Leave (UK)
The Knife - Marble House (Sweden)
Dream Theater - Through Her Eyes (Alternate Vocal & Alternate Sax) (USA)
Liaisons Dangereuses - Etre Assis Ou Danser (Germany)
Clutch - Land of Pleasant Living (USA)
Cassetteboy - NewsiswherejournalistsR (UK)
Mitch Hedberg - Gambling (USA)
Plump DJs - Tilt (UK)
UK is still in the lead! :)

New totals: UK 7, USA 6, and one each Italy, Japan, Lebanon, Canada, Sweden, France, and Germany.

UPDATE 2: one last update. next 10:

Björk - Bachelorette (RZA Remix) (Iceland)
NoMeansNo - Brother Rat (Canada)
Phonosychographdisk - Blow? (USA)
Gnarls Barkley - The Boogie Monster (USA)
Dandi Wind - Utopia Now (Canada)
dr. butcher m.d. - The Arrival (USA)
Ozzy Osbourne - Working Class Hero (UK)
Mogwai - Cody (UK)
Cansei de Ser Sexy - Alala (Brazil)
orNot! - Illigant Brogues (i'm from the USA ;) )
so, final totals for the 1st 30 on shuffle: USA 10, UK 9, Canada 3, and one each Brazil, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Lebanon, and Sweden. So, the USA wins, but with only 1/3 of the tracks.

Anyone else want to try it?
