They Might Be Random Fingertips


I have a bit of an obsession with Fingertips, a sequence of 21 unrelated songs mostly between 4 and 12 seconds long from They Might Be Giants' 1992 album Apollo 18. The liner notes say to put the CD on random shuffle so that the brief snippets play in a random order.

There are 51,090,942,171,709,440,000 ways to permute 21 items -- that's a little excessive, so I made YouTube videos of 100 such permutations. I selected two video clips for each track, mostly by searching for the track name in YouTube, and assigned them randomly, so there should be some visual surprises upon multiple viewings.

Here's a link to the YouTube channel I made to hold all 100 videos.

And here is Random Fingertips #1 of 100:
