This Friday, I thought we'd branch off a bit and deal with songs that are not on my iPod, worse luck for me. See, my iTunes are housed on a computer so old that it doesn't have a burner, so I've only ever downloaded two songs, which I happened to get free. The songs on my iPod are either CDs I own or CDs friends have loaned me. Then with CDs I own, there's the fact that I bought most of them used/on sale. So while I might like to own, say, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' Greatest Hits (which contains #12 ), I own Wildflowers instead, because it was $5 at the used CD store. Some of these I know I can get from EG, so it's partly a to-do list. However, #1 was the first track I tried to download from iTunes, and they don't have it, at least not as such. They have some version from Napoleon Dynamite, with an "alternate ending", and I'm a bit wary. I might have taken my chances but I would have had to buy the whole CD. Oh, well. Someday. So, songs I would like to have on my iPod, but don't:
1. The Promise - When in Rome
2. Somebody - Depeche Mode
3. The Secret Life of Morgan Davis - Ben Folds (Five? Not sure. It was never on an album.)
4. Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want - The Smiths
5. Girlfriend in a Coma - The Smiths
6. Ask - The Smiths
7. Ain't Too Proud to Beg - The Rolling Stones cover. Actually, this is already on my iPod by the Four Tops, but I love this version.
8. Beast of Burden - The Rolling Stones
9. You Can't Always Get What You Want - The Rolling Stones
10. Creep - the Chrissie Hynde version. My all-time favorite cover.
11. Here's to the Losers - Frank Sinatra
12. American Girl - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
13. Surrender - Cheap Trick*
14. Punk Rock Girl - The Dead Milkmen
15. I Wanna Be Sedated - The Ramones
16. It Never Entered My Mind - Miles Davis
