the last collection — Danielle on November 30, 2006 at 8:42 pm

Weekdays, I spend between 1.5h to 4.5h in transit, depending on where I have to go and what I have to do.

Daily… people watching, neighborhood watching…

Differences between 6:30am and 4:30pm… contrasts.

Time to read. Time to daydream. Time to stress. Time to zone out. Time to plan. Time to prepare.

Listening to the ipod shuffle, watching people.

I don’t mind transit. It’s easier than biking and cheaper than a car, but still not as nice as being able to walk where you need to go.

My list, right now.

(in between CBC podcasts, of course.)

La belle et le bad boy – MC Solaar
Intergalactic – The Beastie Boys
Your Woman – White Town
Don’t Believe the Hype – Public Enemy
Hey Ya! – OutKast
Once in a Lifetime – Talking Heads
If I Had a Rocket Launcher – Bruce Cockburn
On Her Majesty’s Secret Service – Propellerheads
Lose Yourself – Eminem
Can’t Get You out of My Head – Kylie Minogue
Cool for Cats – Squeeze
Dare – Gorillaz
The Weight – The Band
Heart Shaped Box – Nirvana
You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet – Bachman-Turner Overdrive
Bobcaygeon – The Tragically Hip
Everyday Rudeboy – Kardinal Offishal
Voyager – Daft Punk
Changes – Tupac
Trahison – Vitalic

Hey, I never said I had sophisticated taste in music. I’m highly susceptible to hooky beats. I love the iTunes, before I had never gotten into music just because of the expense and hassle. Now it’s amazing how easy and customizable it is. Truly we live in some sort of amazing future world.

If you’ve got any suggestions for tracks or podcasts please share them in the comments. What’s on your transit list?

    1. White Town’s Your Woman — hooky beat, indeed.

    3. Wish I could help because I’m fairly certain, from the few tunes I recognize on that list, that if I still listened to secular music I could offer a suggestion or two.

      However, I know you don’t like punk, and my commute is short enough that I’ve had the newest Hawk Nelson in the CD player for weeks. (I’m still too … shall we say “retro”? … to have an ipod. We still have cassettes, although we don’t listen to music on them.)

      Sorry! :)

    4. Hehe, that’s okay Rebecca! I’ll go check out Hawk Nelson on the itunes. I do like some punk, to be honest. I think in any genre there’s always a few awesome singles. I prefer the sound of things on the ska side of punk like the Clash and Sublime.

    5. Did you know that ‘Heart SHaped Box’ is a song about Courtney Love’s vagina? It’s a good song but the meaning behind those lyrics just turns me right off.
