Goodbye Battery

It looks like my Ipod battery is finally dying. It goes from full charge to empty in about 1-1.5 hours. I knew this day would come. Does anyone know of a good Ipod battery replacement service? I really don’t want Tommy to take it apart and try to fix it on his own.

To commemorate the death of my first Ipod battery, I thought that I would list the 25 songs that it played the most.

25) “Favorite Thing” by the Replacements
24) “Safe and Sorry” by the Medications
23) “San Diego Serenade” by Tom Waits
22) “Try Me” by James Brown, off the Live at the Apollo album
21) “A Shot in the Arm” by Wilco
20) “Staring at the Sun” by TV on the Radio
19) “Where Have All The Rude Boys Gone?” by Ted Leo
18) “How Far Am I From Canaan?” by Sam Cooke and the Soul Stirrers
17) “Just for You” by Sam Cooke
16) “The Trial of the Century” by the French Kicks
15) “I Would Die 4 U” by Prince
14) “Obstacle 1" by Interpol
13) “Ambulance” by TV on the Radio
12) “That’s Where It’s At” by Sam Cooke
11) “Rebellion (Lies)” by Arcade Fire
10) “Wet Work” by Q and not U
9) “Wonderful People” by Q and not U
8) “Let Down” by Radiohead
7) “Indian Summer” by Pedro the Lion
6) “My City of Ruins” by Bruce Springsteen
5) “ELT” by Wilco
4) “Letters to Elise” by the Cure
3) “One Mic” by Nas
2) “Bring It On Home To Me” by Sam Cooke
1) “The District Sleeps Alone Tonight” by the Postal Service

Some songs benefitted from being on the Ipod early, like “The Distric Sleeps Alone Tonight” for example. There are some artists not represented due to the number of quality albums they have released, Elvis Costello and John Hiatt come to mind. But all in all, I don’t think this is a bad list. Other than that, enjoy you day off jerks.


  1. Hey! I would totally probably not break your ipod. Jerk.

  2. I know that you almost always actually acomplish the programming/soldering thing that you set out to do. It is more the in between steps when things get far worse that I am not sure that I could handle.
