Friday Random Top 10


Sorry about light blogging lately, I've been dealing with family illness issues. Hopefully things are getting better and next week I can expound on H1N1 vaccine deniers, the Mpls Mayoral race, and crappy gophers football and hockey teams! Don't worry I wouldn't miss a Friday random top 10:

1. Don't Be Cruel - Jerry Lee Lewis
2. Chinese Lorraine - Jack Logan
3. To Sir With Love - Lulu
4. Wear My Ring Around Your Finger - Elvis Presley

A little different list today. Double shot of Fred Eaglesmith and a double shot of Jesus! Big Mak, how many Jesus songs do you have?


Jesus Don't Want Me for a Sunbeam - Nirvana

That's it. Although the People in the lab next to mine had a bet in which 'Jesus Built my Hot Rod' was played on repeat at high volume, and the first person to turn it off had to bring in donuts for the next week, so I feel like I've listened to that one enough times for it to count.
