Always spiffy, friendly and looking to enjoy Albuquerque to its fullest, Dan Mayfield is a true man about town. In addition to serving as editor-in-chief at Albuquerque The Magazine, Mayfield is a DJ—Dan the Doo-Wop Man—on Real Oldies 1600 AM. Hear his show on Sundays from noon to 1 p.m. We asked Mayfield to put his music library on shuffle—below are the first five cuts that appeared at random.

1) “Nowhere to Run” • Martha Reeves & the Vandellas • The Definitive Collection

“Nice. I was always more of a Martha Reeves guy than a Diana Ross and the Supremes guy. She had an unpolished but much more sultry voice than any Motown singer of the ’60s. When I hear her version of ‘Mickey's Monkey,’ I just do a shoulder dip on the twos and fours.”

2) “Me and Mr. Jones” • Amy Winehouse • Back to Black

“Loved ‘Me and Mrs. Jones.’ Though Winehouse can really belt it out when she wants, on this one it sounds like she's just singing in a baby-talk voice the whole time.”

3) “O.P.P.” • Naughty by Nature • Naughty by Nature

“Ninth grade! Holy cow I forgot how great this song is. How can I explain it? The last P, well, that's not that simple ... ”

4) “What I've Done” • Linkin Park • Minutes to Midnight

“Do-overs! How did this get on there? It has that weird ‘Twilight Zone’ keyboard riff that, luckily, distracts from the rap rock that ruined the mid-2000s.”

5) “Hit Me!” • The Sounds • Living in America

“Best Pop Song Ever. Love this. It's been in constant rotation on my iTunes since it came out. Everyone who hears this song thinks this band should be much bigger than it is.”
