Yes.  The Spice Girls.  Shut up.

Nothing else looks out of place:  The Raconteurs have been on heavy rotation here awhile now, mainly because Jack White yanks my chain in a huge way.  Franz Ferdinand’s last album was deliciously seedy and you know the Beastie Boys are never far from any of my playlists.  And people? I don’t often dig Clash covers but Annie Lennox’s funked-up version of ‘Train In Vain’  is made of bass and angst.  I highly recommend it.

Interestingly, though The Police are the largest part of my musical existence (along with Duran Duran – again, I say, shut up!), they only have five albums and so its rare they turn up on any “most-played list”.  I regard their music with something approaching mystical reverence, so just assume that I’ll hear at least one track on a regular basis and that track will very likely ‘Darkness’

For your edification, my favorite track at 8:10 pm is ‘Peaches’ by The Stranglers.
