Friday Random Top 10

| 1 Comment

Last night at the Harriet Bandshell I saw an Elvis Impersonator. About mid-way through the act Elvis brought out his long lost (blonde) “son" and they did dueling Elvii for a couple of songs. The crowd, mostly people in their late 50s and early 60s, went absolutely nuts. In honor of Elvis and his son, here’s your weekly top 10:

1. Larry – Buffalo Tom
2. Chinese Lorraine – Jack Logan
3. Folks on the Block – The Magnolias
4. Moondance – Van Morrison
5. You Can Never Hold Back Spring – Tom Waits
6. Room a Thousand Years Wide – Soundgarden
7. For All the Cows – Foo Fighters
8. Free Nelson Mandela – Special AKA
9. Who Will the Next Fool Be – Charlie Rich
10. Expectations – Belle & Sebastian

A little stoner rock, a little jazzy folk, a protest song, rockabilly, punk, plus Belle & Sebastian. Not a bad list at all. What’s your top 10?
