Clarence Ewing: The Million Year Trip writesFriday MP3 Shuffle: Happy Birthday Desmond Child Edition

(photo from

Today on the MP3 Shuffle, we celebrate the birthday of songwriter extraordinaire Desmond Child. According to Wikipedia, he’s the son of a Hungarian aristocrat and a Cuban singer, which is pretty cool in itself. But he’s also made a name for himself penning hit songs for a bunch of popular hard Rock bands including KISS (“I Was Made for Loving You”), Bon Jovi (“You Give Love a Bad Name”), Aerosmith (“Dude [Looks Like a Lady]”), and even Ricky Martin (“Livin' la Vida Loca”). If you were listening to a commercial Rock station in the late ‘80s, you were hearing this man’s words on a regular basis.

To mark this prolific artist’s accomplishments, let’s play the shuffle. Hold your MP3 player high, press the shuffle button, and share the first 10 songs that play:

1. The Eagles - One of These Nights (One of These Nights): Before U2, before Sting, there was The Eagles, the ultimate Band to Look Down Your Nose At

2. Animal Collective - Street Flash (Water Curses EP)

3. RP Boo – Bang’n on King Dr. (Fingers, Bank Pads, & Shoe Prints): I’m digging this music even though there is no possible way to relax to it.

4. Bleach Party - I Thought I’d Seen a Ghost (Endless Bender)

5. Santah - Did We Sing?: A really cool Chicago band. I was lucky enough to see them live at Andersonville City Made festival this year.

6. Seven Teares - Like Your Black Hair (Power Ballads): Alternative Rustic Renaissance Revival? Yes, this is happening.

7. Diana Ross - I’m Coming Out (Diana): Everything Beyoncé is doing, Diana did first and with more versatility.

8. Deerhoof - No One Asked to Dance (Deerhoof Vs. Evil)

9. The Tarts - Hurry Me Home (The Tarts)

10. Lisa Germano - Tomorrowing (Slide)
