Normally around now, I'd make a list of New Year's Resolutions, which would include not to procrastinate by blogging other lists, like this array of songs on my run mix, but since it's still 2007, what the hell...

Congratulations to Green to who got the most lyrics right. A CD is on its way to syncopate 2008. And Happy New Year, everyone.

1. "Know Your Rights" by The Clash. Love the guitar, the driving beat, and Joe Strummer yelling that if 3 rights is not enough... "Get off the streets!"
2. "Damn It Feels Good to Be a Gangsta" by The Geto Boys. Everyone knew that one. Was it because that many people actually saw Office Space?
3. "Steady Rollin' Man" by Eric Clapton (originally written by Robert Johnson). All of 461 Ocean Boulevard is great. Clapton should quit a bad drug habit before every album.
4. "Going Back to Cali" by LL Cool J. Awesome East Coast rap about the West Coast.
5. "Taking it to the Streets" by The Doobie Brothers. This gets me going like Rerun before he got caught taping the concert in that episode of What's Happening!
6. "It Was a Good Day" by Ice Cube. Hard to believe this was the same guy who later starred in Are We Done Yet?
7. "Rocky Mountain Way" by Joe Walsh. Surprised nobody got this one. Maybe I should've included "Life's Been Good".
8. "Running Free" by Iron Maiden. Not surprised nobody got this one. I like earlier Maiden -- raw and more punk-influenced, though it didn't fully utilize "Eddie".
9. "You Be Illin'" by Run DMC. "But Homes, you did not read it was a can of dog food!"
10. "Motorbreath" by Metallica. Thrash metal gets me going, but a lot of it is too frantic to run to. This one -- a favorite when I was a kid -- is an exception.
11. "Top Jimmy" by Van Halen. Tickets for VH with Diamond Dave in Vegas this week were so expensive, and wasn't sure I could win back the price at the craps tables.
12. "Pretend We're Dead" by L7. I also like "Shitlist", and included it on the CD.
13. "99 Problems" by Jay-Z. Though I have the DJ Dangermouse version, mixing Jay-Z and The Beatles on The Grey Album.
14. "Eminence Front" by The Who. Some friends & I just performed "Won't Get Fooled Again" and we totally rocked... playing "Rock Band", of course.
15. "Renegades of Funk" by Rage Against the Machine. Song kicks ass. That is all.
