    "Jungleland" by Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band

alphabetization amusement

As I've mentioned before, I'm currently listening to the 751 songs on my iPod nano in alphabetical order by title. This does result in the occasional bit of repetition, as there are some songs I have multiple versions of.

My favorite, though, is the Jethro Tull song "Someday the Sun Won't Shine for You." I have five different versions of the song on my iPod: the original on This Was, the band's first album; live versions on A Little Light Music and the recently released Live at Montreux; an entertaining live version from 2002 that was done by the original four members of the band, who got back together for a special show at a pub in Britain, immortalized on Living with the Past; and the redone version on the "Beacon's Bottom Tapes" disc in the band's 25th anniversary boxed set, where they redid several of their songs.

But they're not quite all in a row. You see three of them list the song as "Some Day the Sun Won't Shine for You," and the other two have it as "Someday the Sun Won't Shine for You." Which means that Leadbelly's "Somebody's Diggin' My Potato" is right smack in the middle of them.

Okay, it amused me.......
