Alabaster crashes down

I am procrastinating because I do not feel like working on my paper right now. So I decided I would create an Acrostic iPod Playlist using my name and artist names (last names of people, first words for bands). And why not go all out and use my middle name too? It wastes more time that way.
I semi-randomly picked which song to include for each letter.

Acrostic iPod Playlist

J - "Sit Down" by James
O - "Concrete Sky" by Beth Orton
H - "Clear the Area" by Imogen Heap
N - "Ceremony" by New Order

W - "Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk" by Rufus Wainwright
E - "Wooden Nickels" by Eels
S - "Shoplifters of the World Unite" by The Smiths
L - "Sleeping Faster" by Lo-Fidelity All Stars
E - "Lullabye of London" by Everything but the Girl
Y - I don't currently have any "Y" on my iPod, but if I did, it would be "Mr. Blue" by Yaz.

W - "Glorious Day" by Weezer
A - "Kelly Watch the Stars" by Air
N - "Kyphos" by New Fast Automatic Daffodils
N - "Only" by Nine Inch Nails
I - "Sodom, South Georgia" by Iron and Wine
N - "The Perfect Kiss" by New Order (I have a lot of Ns in my name)
G - "We Just Won't Be Defeated" by The Go! Team
E - "Drama!" by Erasure
R - "I Believe" by R.E.M.

That was fun. Next time I will try song titles.

A nice eclectic mix. Why does iPod sort by first name anyway? I hate that.

Excellent, Tom. I like the idea of Enya on the same list as NWA and Radiohead. Maybe they will tour together.

I'm just sorry that it took a silly iPod game for you to admit you have a problem:
"My name is Tom, and I like Winger."

It's really a shame, Paul, that neither of us has a W in our names.

Erik, my opinion of you has always been pretty high, but the fact that your U2 choice was "Running to Stand Still" skyrockets your standing.
Good work.
