Friday Random Top 10


There’s an article today in the Star Tribune that mentions some of the musicians who will be in town to “entertain? the attendees of the Republican National Convention. The “big? names include Gretchen Wilson, Sammy Hagar, LeAnn Rimes, Big Head Todd, Smashmouth, and Daughtry. Woo boy, gonna have big times in the Twin Towns the first week of September!! Here's your top 10:

1. She Wants to Know – Guided By Voices
2. Candy’s Room – Bruce Springsteen
3. Puff the Magic Dragon – Peter, Paul and Mary
4. Dead – My Chemical Romance
5. I Can’t Explain – The Who
6. Polly – Nirvana
7. Can’t Let Go – Lucinda Williams
8. Legionnaire’s Lament – The Decemberists
9. Arkansas Traveler – Jerry Garcia and David Grisham
10. Geek Stink Breath – Green Day

O.k. That was different. Puff the Magic Dragon has always intrigued me. No it's not about smoking pot. Even though Peter Yarrow says it's about lost innocence, I also think it's about parents letting go of their children. Something that is very real to a parent of two teenagers.

What's your top 10?

Did you see the Pohlads bundled $217K for Obama?

I saw that. I knew the Wilf's were lefty's surprised Pohlad was a big Obama backer.

Wonder if that's the filmmaker son's influence (Bill?) at all?
