Friday Random Top 10


First day this year rode my bike to work. Feels great!! Don't forgot that Saturday is support your local record store day. Minneapolis is blessed with a number of independent record stores. I plan to go to Roadrunner Records, probably to purchase the new Los Campesinos! disc. What store are you going to? Here's a top 10 to get you in the mood:

1. Vertigo -- U2
2. That's Me Trying -- William Shatner
3. In Dreams -- Roy Orbison
4. I Mean You -- Thelonious Monk
5. Jackson -- Johnny Cash w/ June Carter
6. Round Midnight -- Thelonious Monk
7. Hash Pipe -- Weezer
8. Livin' for You -- Al Green
9. Strange -- R.E.M.
10. C'mere -- Interpol

Bonus: Echos Myron -- Guided By Voices

Well of course I had to have a GBV in there, plus a rare Thelonious Monk double shot! Plus 3 one word songs by 3 sort of one word bands. What's your top 10?

It wouldn't be a Big Mak list without a little NIN and Mushugga!

Wow, Al Green, Marvin Gaye, Jackie Wilson, Supremes, good to see people still have that music on their I-pods.

Shoulda checked this on Friday so I'd known about Independent Record Store Day.

Gotta visit Fifth Element soon to get tix for Soundset and maybe the new P.O.S.

Iˇ¦ve recently started a website, the info you offer on this web site has helped me greatly. Thank you for all of your time & work.
