Clarence Ewing: The Million Year Trip writesFriday MP3 Shuffle: Happy Birthday Siouxsie Sioux Edition

Photograph from Mojo Magazine

Today we celebrate the birthday of Siouxsie Sioux, lead singer of Siouxsie and the Banshees. Formed in 1976 by Siouxsie and bass player Steven Severin, the band made a name for itself during the first wave of Post-Punk, developing adventurous, unusual sound structures and a look that helped pave the way for Goth culture. Bands ranging from The Smiths to The Weeknd have appreciated and been influenced by the group, and Siouxsie has been cited by Allmusic as “"one of the most influential British singers of the rock era."

To celebrate Siouxsie Sioux’s birthday, take your MP3 player, press the "shuffle" button, and share the first 10 songs that play:

1. INXS - All the Voices (The Swing)

2. Papercuts – John Brown (Can’t Go Back)

3. Lightning Bolt – Flooded Chamber (Earthly Delights)

4. Janelle Monáe - Give ‘Em What They Love (Feat. Prince) (The Electric Lady)

5. The Sword – High Country (The Sword)

6. Fire Room – Dashboard Fire (Broken Music)

7. David Bowie - Across the Universe (Young Americans)

8. Sonny Rollins – Body and Soul
