Friday Random Top 10


Wow Gophers put a defensive blanket on the Fightin' Illini. A nice needed win. Let's celebrate with a Friday Random Top 10:

1. Black Wind Blowing -- Billy Bragg and Wilco
2. Overture (live) -- The Who
3. Under Her Spell -- The Phones
4. Melt Show (live) -- Old 97's
5. A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall -- Bob Dylan
6. Whispering Pines -- Kelly Hogan and the Pine Valley Cosmonauts
7. Zooropa -- U2
8. Deliah (live) -- Koerner Ray and Glover
9. The Spider -- Weezer
10. I Still Miss Someone -- Johnny Cash

That KRG song is from their last concert ever at Princeton University. If you fill me up with beers sometime ask me about my theory of how the last verse of A Hard Rain, Tom Joad's speech to his mother, and the Holy Spirit and the theory of evolution are are linked. What's your top 10?


Nirvana - Curmudgeon
Nine Inch Nails - Something I Can Never Have
Jimi Hendrix - Purple Haze
White Stripes - Fell In Love With a Girl
Led Zeppelin - Celebration Day
Counting Crows - Up All Night
Wendy Sutter - Song VI (Philip Glass)
…And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead - Witches Web
Foo Fighters - Time, Love, and Tenderness
(hed) P. E. - Swan Dive

You took the bait...

That was a great response, free. I responded to it at my site.

I'm making you a 60's-70's mix, free. Nothing you can do about it. Well, except send a mailing address to me. (You still have my email address?)

I'll shy away from the usual suspects-Kinks, Who, Beatles, etc. Just a disc (or two) of fantastic music you may have overlooked. If you don't like 'em, no problem. You can use 'em as coasters.

Whaddaya say?

That's real cool E-6. I promise I'll listen, won't promise I'll love. btw, I do love the kinks, I wore out Kinks Kronikles on vinyl and listen often on the ol' I-pod.

I loves me a challenge. (As long as they're not financial...)

You should have 'em by the end of the week. Just so you know, I will require your unvarnished opinion.

Thanks, it already arrived in my mailbox!

It looks like a good set. I have the Nuggets selections (loves me some garage rock), Velvet Underground, Nick Drake, and Big Star Selections, and of course everyone love Badfinger. Other than that it will definitely be a new musical experience.

Give me a few days to digest.
