WOW = Wide Open Wednesday where E2TG opens up the entire contents of the 32GB memory card and shuffles the heck out of it.  Okay, so WOW Wednesday is redundant. How about WOW = Wide Open Window or Wide-Open Whatever… that’s not the point. 

The point is that when I load up all the songs which currently reside on my phone (merely a subset of my entire music collection, mind you) all bets are off. There is some really weird stuff, some familiar names (E2TG favorites and classic artists), genres ranging about as far as genres can range, new music, older music, and very old music.  Luck of the draw determines the results…  Here is today’s WOW Wednesday Shuffle….

After the jump…

Starting today and continuing for most days, I am going back to the classic shuffle size – if things get too backed up, I may do a super shuffle Friday every so often, but I think this will give me a better chance to really focus on the songs being featured…

“Suit and Tie” by Justin Timberlake (Feat. Jay Z) from The 20/20 Experience

Yes it is true, #E2TG mostly focuses our attention on lesser known, indie/diy artists who are out there making great music and who deserve a lot more attention than they often get.  Still… sometimes, we like to shake things up and throw a big hit pop song into the mix.  What can I say, I have a soft spot for hook filled hit singles…  This one takes us back to 2013 and the multi-talented Justin Timberlake and some dude named Jay Z (with or without a hyphen?).  Suit up! 

“Every Time the Son Leaves” by Telepathic Teddy Bear from Reactions

Defying odds… yesterday, we had a relatively new song from Telepathic Teddy Bear, and today, our WOW shuffle comes up with this gem from his 2011 album Reactions.


“I Love My Label” by Nick Lowe from Best of Yep Roc Singles/Jesus of Cool (2008 Reissue)
One of the bonus tracks from the reissue of Nick Lowe’s 1978 Solo Debut album. Nick Lowe, man. Freaking Nick Lowe!  The video playlist includes a live version of this song performed by Lowe and Wilco at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.  

“In Spite of Ourselves” by John Prine and Iris Dement from Cool As Folk/In Spite of Ourselves
And, the WOW shuffle ends with the always amazing John Prine and sweet, funny song performed with the equally amazing Iris Dement.
