I-POD FRIDAY

Ipod_nano_g3_003
SW-C has been back in touch re his i-pod Friday which takes place today. I hope none of his work colleagues read this as it will only spoil the surprise(s)

Ipod Fridays

So in the end I made a decision…I wanted to portray a message in the music that I selected. So with a selection of cover versions and some other tracks I spelt that message out.

I’m also turning my Ipod Friday into a quiz featuring a solitary question, I’m offering the prize of a Mars Bar for whoever gets closest. Here is the question: –

How many cover versions are there in my forty songs?

So here is the set list – and go on then – folks how many cover versions are there in this list (JC you are banned from entering as you know the answer), the closest guess gets a special prize which will be revealed later, I appreciate its hard without hearing all the tracks though. Oh and if anyone wants to take a guess at the message I was telling people, then please feel free to comment.

  1. Twenty-six.

    May I get sent a Bounty instead of a Mars Bar, please, SW-C?

    Aah, and a fine compilation it is, to be sure!

  2. Well, it’s a hard task indeed, because as far as I can tell some common riffs are being used, partly excessively, which justifies it to be a cover in my book. Then again, what do I know? So: 24?

  3. I really hope it is 28 because that is a ‘perfect’ number. If it isn’t, I’ll stick with 28 because sometimes a cover is still original.

  4. I’d say 33 covers. 28 I recognise as covers, 2 I know as originals, so I’m just going 50:50 on the ones I’ve never heard of
