Friday Random Top 10


You know that image on the Minnesota State Quarter? The placid lake surrounded by majestic pines with a Loon in the middle? That’s where I was the last three days. 15 minute canoe paddle to the site, sitting around the fire telling bawdy stories, swatting mosquitoes and horseflies, and retiring to a tent and a cozy sleeping bag. Now back to the grind and only 9 days to NYC. Anyway, here’s your Friday top 10!

1. I’ll Cry Instead – The Beatles
2. Man Out of Time – Elvis Costello
3. Mother – Christina Aguilera
4. About You – Teenage Fanclub
5. I’ll Go Crazy – James Brown
6. Straight Time – Bruce Springsteen
7. Teenage FBI – Guided By Voices
8. God’s Children – The Kinks
9. If I Could – Simon and Garfunkel
10. Red Rain – The White Stripes.

Over 7,000 songs on my I-pod and the one Christina Aguilera song pops up. What are the odds? (actually 1 in 7,023). Don’t worry it’s from the John Lennon tribute/Darfur album. Other than that a nice little list. A broad scope of music. What’s your top 10?

P.S. Anyone see the VH1 Rock Honors of the Who last night? The Flaming Lips played a medley from Tommy that just kicked ass!


Little Walter "Can't Hold Out Much Longer" His Best
Guster "Dear Valentine" Ganging Up on the Sun
Los Campesinos! "Drop It Doe Eyes" Hold On Now, Youngster
Tom Verlaine "Peace Piece" Songs and Other Things
XTC "Stupidly Happy" Wasp Star (Apple Venus, Pt. 2)
Victoria Williams "Junk" Water to Drink
Graham Parker "Green Monkeys" Human Soul
The Flamin' Groovies "I'll Cry Alone" Groovies' Greatest Grooves
Sonic Youth "Sympathy for the Strawberry" Murray Street
Alejandro Escovedo "Across the River" A Man Under the Influence

Graham Parker & the Rumour "Mercury Poisoning" Passion Is No Ordinary Word--The Graham Parker Anthology

Over 20,000 songs, so anything can happen.

Where were you at on your vacation? We went to Ely on a family vacation one time. I absolutely loved it up there. We even had a loon swim right up to our canoe.
