iTunes embarassment

This post on The Guardian's online edition touches on something that has perplexed me for some time- exactly how "random" is the shuffle function on iTunes?

I think the randomness is somehow directly tied to how much you are trying to impress persons listening. For example, if I was creating a random ten for the amusement of myself and my friends (who know my musical skeletons), I'd be relaxed, and hysterically-named Kasabian b-sides would pop up. Like 'Lab Twat' or 'Sand Clit.' (actual song titles).

Or this could be another item in the list entitled "Crap I Haven't A Clue About."
