fripodding and listing: the droid playlist (vol. 1)


The Indoob has been quiet this past week. But don’t worry, it’s been for good reason. I got me a new “toy” this week that will allow use of another toy I bought last year. Actually, this other toy is more of a crucial tool that will allow me to save close to $1,000 for now. But that’s another story.

This week I’ve also been busy collecting music. I’ve been having a super difficult time trying to figure out what song I wanted to pick today until it hit me–why not feature another playlist? So today’s friPod iPick is what I named the DROID list. Why?

Every song on this list was either found and/or downloaded via my Droid. I still have yet to really talk much about my new phone, but in due time.

For those familiar with some of the popular app that come from the Android Market, I specifically and exclusively only use two, for now. Shazam and iMusic. iMusic is a downloading app. Shazam is an app that listens and identifies whatever music is playing. It works about 90-95% of the time. So with this list I’ll tell if Shazam played a roll and any additional info like when and where it happened. This is list is not in any specific order. If anything, it’s ordered by date I added them to iTunes, now when I downloaded them.

  1. Wake Up – Arcade Fire — This song plays on the trailer for Where the Wild Things Are
  2. Why Can’t We Be Friends – WAR — A song I just love and used to have on a CD that has been lost. Sadness.
  3. They Can’t Take That Away From Me – Frank Sinatra — I got this song by accident, but I decided to keep it because it is a classic.
  4. Too Close – Next — Funny story about this song… When it first came out back in the day, I didn’t really know what it was about. But today, I still like it for the same reason I did before… the music and the beat.
  5. 1901 – Phoenix — I hear this song everywhere, car commercials, movie trailers. I gave in and I Shazammed this song on a trailer for I Love You, New York.
  6. Let It Whip – Dazz Band — A song that’s always been a hit, but always makes me think of The New Guy. I’ve always wanted this song way before that movie though.
  7. Mr. Bojangles – Sammy Davis, Jr. — This song almost and still maybe a featured song, but I recently saw a doc on Mr. Davis and this song caught my attention. So far I like his version the best.
  8. Kashmir – Led Zeppelin — I felt sad for iSaac only having 2 Zeppelin songs, and this is the only other one I was familiar with and liked. This makes #3. Plus it’s a good song. Shout out to Ocean’s Twelve.
  9. You Make My Dreams Come True – Hall & Oats(500) Days of Summer is what brought my attention to this movie. Possibly one of my favorite scenes. Also a fun and happy song.
  10. Anyway You Want It – Journey — Like Zeppelin and Sinatra, I’m light on Journey songs. But I’m not really sure why I downloaded this song. Possibly on a whim.
  11. We Made You – Eminem — Possibly and probably the only oddball on this list. But I like this song and realized I didn’t have it.
  12. If I Can Dream – Elvis Presley — I heard this song on a commercial for a new reality series by the same name.
  13. Listen to the Music – The Doobie Brothers — I heard this song while I was at the movie theaters in the lobby.
  14. Under The Milky Way – Sia — So I saw a Lincoln car commercial… it didn’t make me want to buy a car, it made me want this song. I will admit, when I listen to it, I like to imagine driving at night like the commercial. It’s the perfect nighttime driving song.
  15. The Boondocks Theme Song – Asheru — This is the very first song I downloaded. Another song I used to have once upon a time but lost. I currently have it as a default ringtone now.
  16. Valerie – Mark Ronson featuring Amy Winehouse — I spoke about this song last week. But I first heard it at a Ruby Tuesdays if I remember correctly. This has also been made into a ringtone on my phone for a couple friends.
  17. Hallelujah – Jeff Buckley — Apparently this is the best or most popular version of this song. No matter who sings it, I will think of Watchmen.
  18. Are You Gonna Be My Girl – Jet — One of those hype-and-get-excited songs I always wanted.

That’s it for today’s edition. I’m sure as time goes by, this list will probably grow, or I’ll start a new one. Or just like “Valerie”, you’ll see a specific song from this list showcased here. Although I already have something planned, but who knows. Have a fantastic weekend, Indoobians!

    It's a joyous holiday season as an ailing Sterling celebrates his official first Father's Day and Juneteenth by hanging out at Virtuous Con and the fascinating panels he attended.
