Segue of the Day 5/27/04

Everyonce in a while, with iTunes set on random play, it will play two songs that segue together so perfectly that it’s just stunning. I really need to start keeping track of these so I can remember to put them on a mix cd someday. I think I’ll start posting them here.

Today’s great segue: “Give Judy My Notice” by Ben Folds, into “Many Rivers to Cross” by Jimmy Cliff. The two songs end/begin in the same key and blend together perfectly.

How about you — what great segues have you heard lately?

  1. Wow! What a great question! However, I can’t really answer it, as I so rarely use the shuffle in iTunes. I most often make playlists, and so have already carefully chosen my own segues (which is a rulest word, by the way).

    Too, I’m so often buying new music, that I have a smart playlist that has new music added to the library from the past 9 days (why 9? don’t ask). Right now I have 11.5 hours in it, so I really don’t have time to listen to iTunes on random shuffle! My new music playlist is the closest thing.

  2. I also have lots of pre-planned playlists. But I find that the great thing about shuffle play is finding great segues that wouldn’t come to mind otherwise, or songs that comment on each other unintentionally. The coolest moments in mix CDs are the accidental ones. 😉
