How's this for a meme? Turn your iTunes to "party shuffle" (otherwise known as "random"). What are the next ten songs? Mine are:

1. Give Me Another Chance, Big Star
2. For What Reason, Death Cab for Cutie
3. GreenCastle Hornpipe, Beginish
4. I'm Not Down, the Clash
5. Mitwa, Udit Narayan, Alga Yagnik, Sukwinder Singh
6. First to Finish, Last to Start, Ted Leo and the Pharmicists
7. There Goes the Fear, Doves
8. The Ashplant Set, Dervish
9. Know Your Onion!, the Shins
10. Brief Candles, the Zombies

What does this prove, other than that I have kind of random taste in music? Well, aside from the crowd that does "Mitwa," I think Dervish is the only band on that list that has a single female member, and the only woman in Dervish is the singer. (Women singers are still more common than female instrumentalists in Irish music, although it's not as true as it once was.) It appears that my feminism doesn't extend to my musical taste.
