Playlist “Planet Express”

Not to be underestimated.

If this is not the shortest playlist by total length in minutes, if certainly feels it.  Three times, at least, I have had the iPod fall silent during the late intervals of a run.  Good opener followed by a VERY VERY loud Bif Naked.  I think I re-tuned this track to a -80% volume in iTunes and even that could use another drop.  The product of someone else’s digitizing a track which I totally did not download from ‘teh Intarwebz’.  The R.E.M. track is a motivator, as is the Manson track.  I discovered Mechanical Animals on a full play-through of that album and liked it.

One is a very significant song for me, necessitating its inclusion even if it isn’t an adrenaline kick.  Matt Good gets an appearance, and close on Loggins.  I think I’d used I’m Alright before in a different playlist.

This playlist is named after an icon ship from a show that was better than it was given credit for, and whose only failing was to have aired at a time when “The Simpsons” was still a rising star.
