Friday Random Top 10



K.G. one game away from a Championship. Couldn't happen to a more deserving guy. Here's your random top 10:

1. Sons of Apollo - Guided by Voices
2. Humph - Thelonious Monk
3. Films - Gary Numan
4. You Belong to Me - Elvis Costello
5. West of the Fields - R.E.M.
6. Nebraska - Bruce Springsteen
7. I Love You Because - Elvis Presley
8. Marmora Pig - Washboard Hank
9. Mexico City Blues 149 - Jack Kerouac
10. My Shining Hour - John Coltrane

A little jazz, some Kerouac, both Elvi, Bruce, R.E.M. and GbV. Kinda weird, not sure if it works. What's your top 10?


Crooked Fingers "The Rotting Strip" Bring on the Snakes
Memphis Jug Band "Memphis Shakedown" Harry Smith's Antholgy of American Folk Music, Volume Four
Marshall Crenshaw "Girls..." Marshall Crenshaw
The Magnetic Fields "Take Ecstasy with Me" Holiday
Deana Carter "The Cuckoo Bird" Songcatcher
Moby "I Like to Score" Songs 1993-1998
The Mekons "Chop That Child in Half" Original Sin
Alison Krauss & Union Station "Every Time You Say Goodbye" (live) This Is Americana
Passengers "Slug" Original Soundtracks 1
Superchunk "Under Our Feet" Indoor Living

The Magnetic Fields "How Fucking Romantic" 69 Love Songs

Now that's some mighty fine random, starting off with a true Sad Bastard Music (thanks for the term, Marty) anthem, if that's not an oxymoron. But it's one of those weeks were the songs I don't recognize as well are still quite good--Memphis Jug Band, Deana Carter--and then you have to admire the range, as even the two MF songs are about as different as they could be. And even Eno sneaks in.

Don't have a top ten, but that picture is awesome!
