Here it is! In the tradition of American Idle, every Friday I will turn the I-Pod to shuffle and see what it spits out. This Friday's Top Ten:

1. Indifference - Pearl Jam
2. Almost Blue - Elvis Costello
3. Let's Ride - Guided by Voices
4. Summertime - Janis Joplin
5. Burn, Baby Burn - Rev. F.D. Kirkpatrick
6. Returning the Screw - Fugazi
7. Mincer Ray - Guided by Voices
8. We Got the Neutron Bomb - The Weirdos
9. Leaving on a Jet Plane - Peter, Paul, and Mary
10. Adult Books - X

Favorite Song this week? Since I have two Guided by Voices songs in this week's top 10, I thought I'd go for the trifecta and call out GbV's Teenage FBI as my favorite. It's a perfect sugary "teenager-in-love" song with hooks a mile wide, frothy lyrics, and a synthesizer-led chorus that just brings down the house. More on Guided by Voices in the near future.

What's yourTop 10?

Interesting mix. I love the Carole King James Taylor medley. And Jazzman is about my all time favorite song. Some day I will get Britty to play that song on her Saxophone! Yeah.
