    Inspired by noticing that both Nico and Popul Vuh have apparently unrelated (genetically) songs called "Abscheid"* I decided to make a playlist of all the songs on my iPod that have the same name without being related. I figured this'd be rather easy and would be a quick listen. Wrong. I am up to 97 songs over almost 6 hours and only through letter B.

    I am most excited to listen to discover songs that I didn't realize were covers.

    If I were feeling ambitious and thought people would guess I might post on how many songs I ended up with and have people guess at how many covers I unknowingly included. It'd just be a blind guess, though; I doubt I'd post all the songs and no one'd want to look up everything anyway.


    *Though it turns out I was wrong, the Popul Vuh song is "ie" and the Nico one is "ei." Damn words I don't know.

    I tend to accidentally play Land of Talk's All My Friends when I'm looking for LCD Soundsystem's All My Friends, and vice versa. I'm okay with either option though, really.

    Carry on.

    I would love to be listening to Geogaddi and have the Marnie Stern song "The Devil Is In the Details" pop up.

    Also I hope so many of these are covers.

    Also the song title that is currently winning is "California" at five unique songs.

    Yeah, the other one was a Wild Light song, it was just called California when I heard it, but evidently they renamed it before release.

    The California I'm thinking of was used as a TV show theme tune. Please give me the others before I go nuts.

    Too late.

    Joni Mitchell. Low. Rogue Wave. Quasi. I Was A King.


    Also now "The End" has tied "California."

    I have two on my hard drive. One is Joni Mitchell (I didn't even know I had her on my hard drive?) and the other is Low.

    Haha. I do have the Doors and also the Beatles, Les Savy Fav, Vivian Girls and David & the Citizens.

    I am now through H and am up to 325 songs, almost 21 hours.


    My favorite combo is "Going Down" from Ani DiFranco, the Germs and the Stone Roses. Or maybe "Gone" by Babes in Toyland, Kanye West and the Wedding Present.

    And "Home" has tied "California" and "The End" at five.

    i can think of even more "California"s off the top of my head

    Phantom Planet Wax

    This is a good activity. I'll do this sometimes with a certain word (like Burn, that i seem to have a billion of), or songs that have the same words in titles as opposed to whole titles

    i like the idea of a playlist of them

    How strict are you being? I'm choosing not to include "the" variants (ex. Albatross, The Albatross) and minor wording differences (All In My Mind, All In The Mind).

    there are a LOT of songs called "Angel"

    The one stretch i'm giving myself is including songs that have parentheses

    None of those would be included as pairs on my list.

    I'm ignoring punctuation but any word difference means it doesn't count.

    Additional parentheticals that are actually part of the song title are a disqualification but notes like "Closet Mix" or "featuring Dwele" are no issue.

    I'm also ignoring stage direction type words like "Intro" and such. That's just cheating.

    I'm also ignoring classical and jazz. Too many adagios, etc.

    I only ended up with 2 "Angel"s, Massive Attack and the Satintones. I know Spectrum has an "Angel" but I guess I don't have it on my iPod.

    That's how I'm doing it. I'm also disqualifying singulars vs. plurals or this shit would be way too long.
