In the blogosphere, I believe this is called "filler"

It's a foggy Friday before a long weekend, and in a few hours, we'll be journeying south (well, a little south) to camp out, drink whisky/wine/beer, and eat bacon for two nights and the two associated mornings.

The road trip will not likely be accompanied by a kicky, quirky ipod playlist, but if it did, it might look like my Top 25 Most Played*.

1. You Wouldn't Like Me - Tegan and Sara
2. I Get Around - Dragonette
3. Everyday is a Holiday - Esthero
4. Homecoming King - Guster
5. Shock Box - Dragonette
6. Amsterdam - Guster
7. Take Me Anywhere - Tegan and Sara
8. Your Rocky Spine - Great Lake Swimmers
9. All the Way Up to Heaven - Guster
10. Rapid Roy (the Stock Car Boy) - Jim Croce
11. Aikendrum - Raffi**
12. Bumping Up and Down - Fisher Price Little People***
13. Must be Santa - Raffi
14. Standing Ovation - Chucky Danger Band (now Paper Lions)
15. Barrel of a Gun - Guster
16. Smoke and Wine - Hank Williams III
17. Jenny Don't be Hasty - Paulo Nutini
18. The More We Get Together - Raffi
19. Willoughby Walloughby Woo - Raffi
20. Better - Guster
21. Red Oyster Cult - Guster
22. Center of Attention - Guster ****
23. Little Round Mirrors - Harvey Danger
24. Stuck Between Stations - The Hold Steady
25. Chips Ahoy! - The Hold Steady

What's on your Top 25? What would you put on your 2-hour-drive road trip playlist?

*Which, if I don't get a successful hard-drive transplant from the Mac Store gods/geeks, will disapper into the ether until I can reformat the ipod and reinstall all my music. Fun!
** I should have known, but never expected the kids music to show up on my top 25. You try working out to your top 25 when Bananaphone comes on and you bust out laughing in mid-stride.
***Yes, the same people that brought you the audio monstrosity about which I've already written.
**** I must have been really insufferable during my Guster phase last year. Nice to know that Raffi and Jim Croce are rising up the ranks of the Top 25.

how is it possible that i only really liek 2 (the LAST 2) songs on your top 25 when for years I think we had the exact same play lists?

T & S is a mainstay on any of my play lists. Excellent choice!
