Thank you iTunes!

Were it not for "shuffle mode" on the iPod in the car, I might have completely forgotten several really great albums. Three that I've recently rediscovered: Kick by INXS, Bloodletting by Concrete Blonde, and Nothing's Shocking by Jane's Addiction.

Bloodletting Mmm... Yes, very good! Joey got decent airplay but (IMO) Tomorrow (Wendy) is the better song of the two.

I saw Concrete Blonde at the old 9:30 Club in WashDC in the late 80s. (Yes, the old 9:30 Club, with the infamous view-blocking pole...) They were still in their (semi-)Goth days; Mankey did some amazing guitar work. Great show, especially when 5 feet from the stage!

I recognize two of the bands, but that's all.

Back in the day, the radio stations around here (and I imagine most other places) used to often play Mediate immediately after Need You Tonight, as though they were one song (like in the video). I wish they still would. I only have that album on tape.

The Loved One is easily my favorite from Kick.

Another favorite of mine that you may rediscover, if you found them worthwhile at the time, Living Colour. Vivid has aged well, in my opinion.

When does Alice in Chains come up in the rotation?

Can't go wrong with Concrete Blonde. I loaded all of their albums into my MP3 player and let them go into rotation in my office at work.

That's what I love about having ripped every CD I own, including some I hadn't listened to in years, to my ipod. Tracks pop up on shuffle and "Oh, hey! Cool!"

*blink* Thought I was the only one who remembered the old 9:30 club.

Have a Nothing's Shocking patch on my straight jacket... the other two are good too.
