Editor's Note: Here are the rules for Songs for Sunday: one of our edteam will post the last ten songs from their iPod, then you share yours in the comments so we can compare! Let's play!

I'll try not to include all Madonna songs here, but given Tuesday's release of Hard Candy, the temptation is mighty!

Here we go . . .

4 Minutes - Madonna
Frozen Charlotte - Natalie Merchant
Pacific (original mix) - Freemasons
Don't Tell Me (Thunderpuss 2001 Hands in the Air Anthem) - Madonna
Feel So Different - Sinead O'Connor
Walking on Thin Ice (Louie Vegas Mix) - Anane
Time (Peter Rauhofer Timeless Club Mix) - Murk
Rocket Man (Alyson Calagna Mix) - Daphne Rubin-Vega
Isaac - Madonna
The Promise - Tracy Chapman

And now for some video fun!

Steve- What a fun, gay list! It's like something I would put on while getting ready to go out on the town (because we know I must have gettin' ready music... I mean, my hair alone takes hours.)

My random list:

4 minutes- Madonna
Bleeding Love- Leona Lewis
No Air- Jordin Sparks
In Love with a Girl- Gavin DeGraw
Mercy- Duffy (I LOOOVE this song)
I'm yours- Jason Mraz
Won't go home without you- Maroon 5
I will possess your heart- Death Cab for Cutie
Praying for Time- Carrie Underwood
Angels- Robbie Williams

Steve, I'm a little sad that the list this week is so Madonna light!

Hey - no criticize and run. What's your list, Serena? I'll be back with mine momentarily. I have to update the iPod. LOL

I just got a new album that's been on OCD repeat, so there's not much randomness to my last ten.

1. "And There It Is" sung by Natalie Wiess (download from www,
2. "Now" sung by Jonathan Groff, Dreaming Wide Awake: The Music of Scott Alan
3. "Surrender" sung by Cheyenne Jackson, Dreaming Wide Awake: The Music of Scott Alan
4. "I'm a Star" sung by Eden Espinosa, Dreaming Wide Awake: The Music of Scott Alan
5. "Home" sung by Shoshana Bean, Dreaming Wide Awake: The Music of Scott Alan
6. "Magic" sung by Adriane Lenox, Dreaming Wide Awake: The Music of Scott Alan
7. "Hardly a Hero" by Levi Kreis, One of the Others
8. "The Clock Strikes Three" sung by Michael Arden, from Forward
9. "Warhol Highway" Mare Lennon, Warhol Highway
10. "Living Well is the Best Revenge" R.E.M., Accelerate

You've already seen how boring my iPod is in a previous post. I update it every time we get a new president.

Off-topic (so sue me!): Steve, do you have or know where to look up the complete list of Madonna's dancers in her music video for Vogue? After googling for 30 minutes, I still haven't found it.

I found Jose Xtravaganza and Luis [somebody] ... and yes, I probably need to enroll in "Remedial Internet Research 101" even though it meets at 7:30 AM on Saturday.

... and these are video iPods we're talking about, aren't they?

I ♥ Isaac, Steve. That's one of her best songs in a while.

Here's mine - the totally random play edition:

1) Ordinary Day - Vanessa Carlton
2) Psychopath - Saeed & Palash
3) Ice Cream - Sarah McLachlan
4) Man in Black - Johnny Cash
5) Nutbush City Limits - Ike and Tina Turner
6) Saginaw Michigan - Lefty Frizzell
7) I Am Woman - Helen Reddy
8) You're in Love - Wilson Phillips
9) I Want to Live - Josh Gracin
10) Speed of Sound - Coldplay

With the new movie coming out, how about "Iron Man" by Black Sabbath? I'm sure some men would like to have their very own Iron Man. After all, Data from ST:NG was "fully functional." Maybe some woman would even love to have an Iron Girl.

I actually listened to a bunch of Kimya Dawson songs on the train back to St. E. They're sad and this city makes me sad, so it worked.

Poor St. E!

The Madonna Dancers (courtesy of the screen credits for Madonna: Truth or Dare listed at

Donna Delory, Niki Harris, Luis Camacho, Oliver Crumes Jr., Salim Gauwloos, Jose Guitierez, Kevin Alexander Stea, Gabriel Trupin, and Carlton Wilborn.

(Yeah, I know I'm the only one who cares, but I thought I'd post this list anyway.)
