Friday Random Top 10


I saw John McCain last night on David Letterman and man he sometimes just comes across as kind of a dick. Say what you want about Obama’s experience or Sarah Palin’s stupidity… I am not sure that John McCain would wear well with the American Public over four years. Here’s your Friday Random Top 10:

1. You Are My Sunshine – Johnny Cash
2. Moulty – The Barbarians
3. Days – The Kinks
4. Full Moon, Empty Heart – Belly
5. Sweet Dreams – Patsy Cline
6. Ball and Chain – Janis Joplin
7. Oddfellows Local 151 – R.E.M.
8. Plains of Nebrasky-O – Eric Anderson
9. Donut Shops of Ontario – Washboard Hank
10. If I Told You – Husker Du

Sometimes the Friday Random Top 10s are just gems: I wish I could give the list to everyone so that they could hear what real good music sounds like and radio stations all around the country would take that list and play it on an endless loop. The above is definitely not one of those examples. What’s your top 10?


Brian Eno "Dead Finks Don't Talk" Here Come the Warm Jets
Lightning & Group "Long John" Martin Scorsese Presents: The Blues
Talking Heads "Pulled Up" Talking Heads: 77
Randy Newman "Cowboy" Guilty: 30 Years of Randy Newman
Sex Pistols "Anarchy in the U.K." Great Rock'n'Roll Swindle
Laurie Anderson "Puppet Motel" Bright Red Tightrope
Iris Dement "You've Done Nothing Wrong" My Life
Laurie Anderson "Speechless: The Eagle and the Weasel" Bright Red Tightrope
Victoria Williams "You R Loved" Loose
Wayne County & the Back Street Boys "Max's Kansas City 1976" D.I.Y.: Blank Generation--The New York Scene (1975-1978)

Glenn Gould "Gigue from Suite for Piano, Op. 25" Thirty-Two Short Films about Glenn Gould

That's what makes the Random thing fun, free. Plus, any list with "Days" is a winner.

1."C'mon Everybody" Eddie Cochran
2."Gonna Find Me A Substitute" The Pretty Things
3."Electrolite" R.E.M.
4."Johnny Angel" Shelley Fabares
5."Still In Love With You" Thin Lizzy
6."Reuters" Wire
7."Flying High Again" Sloan
8."Hopeless Friend" Graham Coxon
9."Baltimore" Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks
10."Evil-Hearted Ada" Flamin' Groovies

I just read this article in Rolling Stone before work this morning.

Pretty interesting, to say the least.
