Friday Random Top 10


The Hold Steady and Drive by Truckers are here for two nights and I don’t have tickets. I thought when Obama was elected President everything was going to change for the better? Oh well, I guess we need a Friday Random Top 10 to soothe the pain.

1. The Golden Age – Beck
2. Curtain Calls – Old 97’s
3. Born to Lose – The Heartbreakers
4. Fallen from the Sky – Glen Hansard
5. Wishing the Days Away – Billy Bragg
6. Trying Your Luck – The Strokes
7. For the Price of a Cup of Tea – Belle and Sebastian
8. As Long as the Grass shall Grow – Johnny Cash
9. A Spoonful Weighs a Ton – The Flaming Lips
10. Tourette’s – Nirvana

Nice list for a cold and gloomy fall day. What’s your top 10?
