Friday Random Top 10

| 1 Comment

An inch of slush on the ground, the North Dakota Fighting Englestads annual choke in the Frozen Four, Timberwolves battling for more ping-pong balls, and potholes big enough to swallow a Kia mean only one thing: It’s Spring! Here is this week’s top 10:

1. Crazy Baby – The Blasters
2. Apology Song – The Decemberists
3. Abraham – Jack Kerouac
4. Police Story – Black Flag
5. I’m Lucky – Joan Armatrading
6. Something – The Beatles
7. Men 2nd – Wire
8. Bad Days – The Flaming Lips
9. High Time – Paul Westerberg
10. Tall Dark Stranger – Buck Owens

I like this list. If you listen closely to Crazy Baby, you can hear a dog bark in the background about 2/3 of the way through – to the beat no less! Apology Song is the greatest “I am sorry your bike got stolen? song ever written and there’s nothing like a little Buck Owens to kick off your Friday morning!

What’s your top 10?
