It's finally getting cold enough to get some ice down for the rinks. Broomball/skating season will soon be upon us!

1. Conversation -- Gary Numan
2. The Murder Mystery -- Velvet Underground
3. Fame Throwa -- Pavement
4. And I Love Her -- The Beatles

8. Help -- Howie Day
9. This Is Not a Photograph -- Mission of Burma
10. Blackbird -- Sarah McLaclan

Bonus: One Way Street -- Bevery Williams

Not the greatest list. Three Beatles tunes, only one original version.


Time to put Pandora back in its box; this week’s random 10 are soundtrack tunes off the extended harddrive.

“Panic” – Yasunori Mitsuda, Xenosaga
“Absinken” – Klaus Doldinger, Das Boot (The Directors Cut)
“Half of Me is Wild” – John Scott, Greystoke, The Legend of Tarzan

“Samwise the Brave” – Howard Shore, Lord of the Ring: The Two Towers
“Treasure” – Trevor Rabin, National Treasure
“The Far Side of the World” – Christopher Gordon, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World

Waterworld is one of those "Great Soundtrack/Bad Movie" situations. Unfortunately, it works the other way, too.
