The Ten v.001

As I try to get my writing life back in gear, I find myself returning to old ideas that never got utilized. One is the time I decided to write a novel using the Tarot as a guide. Yeah, I know, it’s not original at all; Philip K. Dick did the same thing using the I Ching. I’m not totally following that old route yet, though – for one thing, I can’t find my favorite deck. For another, I simply don’t have the time or unassailable personal space to reach a point of clarity for the cards to speak to me.

What I have done is become oddly obsessed with my MP3 player and what gets connected via the Random function. As this point, I’m unsure whether I’m trying to suss out things about myself or if my subconscious is trying to find usable patterns in sonic synchronicity. More bulletins as they occur, I guess. For the curious, today’s Ten was:

1. Shirley Bassey – Diamonds are Forever
2. Mitchell Froom – The Key of Cool (getting a 404 on that name? It’s the music used in Cafe Flesh)
3. Danny Elfman – Midnight Run
4. Spanky & Our Gang – Sunday Will Never Be the Same
5. Spirit – A Dream Within A Dream
6. Mandingo – Jungle Wedding
7. Nine Inch Nails – Last
8. Oingo Boingo – Dead Man’s Party
9. Pink Floyd – Goodbye, Blue Sky
10. Les Baxter – Tahiti, A Summer Night at Sea

  1. You’re not the only one to try < HREF="http://www.tomatonation.com/iching.shtml" REL="nofollow">that<>, either, I’m afraid.Personally, in spite of it being a relatively small percentage of the songs on it, my iPod is determined that I shall listen to Buddy Holly. I was working out yesterday, and Peggy Sue came around 3 times, until I finally caved and listened to the damn thing.

  2. Dude… no 404 or 601I have the Cafe Flesh soundtrack in vinyl in storarge but I need an mp3 copy. Have many key likes from the other tracks on this list. Looking for cafe flesh everywhere. Hope to find access soon. cheersRob
