Friday Random Top 10


This past Wednesday I crossed over the 1000 mile mark on my bike for the year. I think my first ride was in mid-April so that is about 200 miles a month. Definitely room for improvement next year. On Sunday I am doing the Urban Assault Ride which looks like a blast. Let's celebrate with a random top 10:

1. The Good Life - Weezer
2. Van Lear Rose - Loretta Lynn
3. Up the Junction - Squeeze
4. Punk and the Grandfather - The Who
5. Before I Break - Uncle Tupelo
6. Joke about Jamaica - The Hold Steady
7. Hey You - Luther Wright and the Wrongs
8. My Impression Now - Guided By Voices
9. Papa was a Rodeo - Kelly Hogan and the Pine Valley Cosmonauts
10. Come una Peitra Scalciatal (Like a Rolling Stone) - Articolo 31

Bonus - Trial of Mary Maguire - Bobby Patterson

If you haven't heard it, you must seek out Luther Wright and the Wrongs countrified version of The Wall called Rebuild the Wall. It is a hoot! What's your top 10?


* 10,000 Days (Wings, Part 2) – Tool – 10,000 Days
* The Clincher – Chevelle – This Type of Thinking Could Do Us In
* The Big Come Down – Nine Inch Nails – The Fragile
* Filthy – Nothingface – Violence

* Karma Police – Radiohead – The Best Of

I realized I just passed 10,000 days old in June. Weird.

"Rock Bottom" UFO > Squishy Butt

As I said on your site E, that is one awesome list. Hey Stagger is Rock Bottom a cover of the Kiss tune? Big Mak with another heavy list

A Mogg-Schenker composition, free. Before I heard my first punk rock, I liked me some UFO (and Thin Lizzy--still do). One of these days, something from Force It is gonna show up on my list.

Correct, E-6. Two different Bottoms; but both definitely have that Dazed and Confused vibe. My high school buddies and I used to air guitar with broomsticks to UFO. Man, that was a looong time ago ...
