    Hmmm…it’s probably something like “each of the songs use a minor pentatonic scale” or “each of the songs have a BPM of 82.”

    I guess the only think I can think of is that aside from that ELO jam I don’t want to listen to any of these songs.

    I’m gonna vote for “Blue Rondo à la Turk” by Dave Brubeck because it is in 9/8 and uses angular rhythms. Is my music choice right? Or wrong?

    I’d nominate:

    Wake Up – XTC
    or perhaps one of many from The Mighty Mighty Bosstones?

    Adam – the XTC track is perfect, but the only bosstones tracks that *might* work are those from the “Don’t know how to party” album

      Heh. Well, naturally I had to dig out the CD to rip so that I can find out for myself what happens after I upload…
