On the iPod™: Lunch at Prune, Preserved for Posterity

New, 14 comments

Nearly four years after Frank Bruni kicked off his tenure as Times restaurant critic with a stinging critique of Mario Batali's playlist at Babbo, everyone and their brother and their sister has hopped on the "What's on such-and-such restaurant's MP3 player?" train. So gosh darn it if we're not feeling left out!

Luckily, an Eater spy enjoyed lunch at East 1st Street favorite Prune last week—side note: the burger remains spectacular—and jotted down the names of the songs emanating from the house iPod. The genre-busting intensity on display that day will Blow. Your. Mind.

1. Neil Young, "Tell Me Why"
2. Neil Young, "After the Gold Rush"
3. Neil Young, "Only Love Can Break Your Heart"
4. Neil Young, "Southern Man"
5. Neil Young, "Till the Morning Comes"
6. Neil Young, "Oh, Lonesome Me"
7. Neil Young, "Don't Let It Bring You Down"
8. Neil Young, "Birds"
9. Neil Young, "When You Dance I Can Really Love"
10. Neil Young, "I Believe in You"
11. Neil Young, "Cripple Creek Ferry"
12. Bruce Springsteen, "Thunder Road"
