Friday Random Top 10


There will be eight 16 and 17 year old girls in my house tonight. I think Charlie and I will try to go the Wilco concert (even though we don't have tix) to get away. How about a Random Top Ten:

1. Life From a Window -- The Jam
2. Cry, Cry, Cry -- Johnny Cash
3. Minneapolis -- Lucinda Williams
4. All You Fascists -- Billy Bragg and Wilco
5. Pieces of Truth -- Foxboro Hot Tubs
6. Away with Murder -- Camera Obscura
7. Friday I'm in Love -- The Cure
8. The Static Age -- Green Day
9. Another Life -- Jack Logan
10. Copperhead Road -- Steve Earle

Bonus: Ruby Tuesday -- The Rolling Stones

A little variety there. That Camera Obscura album is awesome. What's your top 10?


While not a huge Simply Red fan, I do like a few songs; "Sunrise" is my favorite (special thanks to Hall & Oates)

“Paradise” – Bodeans, Black and White
Bonus Track: “See a Little Light” - Bob Mould, Workbook

#2: speaking of The Police, happy 58th birthday, Sting.

The denizens of Seattle are uniquely positioned to appreciate your transition from dome to proper baseball field. I hope your new stadium is as well thought out as Safeco Field (where the Mariners now play). It's a whole new experience.

While I'm on blogging hiatus, figure I can still drop the random ten into folks' comments, right? Good luck Twins! Always good to see at least one race go to the last day. But w/o Morneau, I feel for your offense.

9."Timebomb" Olds 97s Too Far To Care
10."Fancy Claps" Wolf Parade Apologies to The Queen Mary
bonus"Pilgrimage" REM Murmur

Camera Obscura will be in my top 5 with ease. Wonderful stuff.

Did you make it to Wilco? I'll be interested to hear how the show went. I caught the Bottle Rockets in Seattle last night. Whew! My earballs are still ringing! I'm going to have to start wearing earplugs before I'm as deaf as Bob Mould ...

Good result on the Twins last night. But Zack Greinke today. Yikes! That's the very definition of a Tall Order.

George, glad to see still do Random top 10s. Keep em coming.

Wilco was great, full review later.

Nice songs

My list is almost same. So, I think.....I don't need to mention again.

Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It's very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
