Due to a complete lack of creativity, I decided to do the popular “use shuffle on your MP3 player and take note of the first 25 tracks that appear” thing. While I wrote up a short paragraph for each track when I did this before, I decided to just post the list this time, along with the appropriate genre listed at the end of each line. Here’s to hoping you discover some new tunes out of this little experiment:
