In my continuing bid to attack this nasty winter that seems to have a death grip on our landscape and soul, I am going snow mountain biking this weekend. Never done it before and I really don't have the right gear, but what the heck. Here's a Random Top 10 to get me going:

1. I am Trying to Break Your Heart -- Wilco
2. Flower -- Liz Phair
3. What You Do To Me -- Teenage Fanclub
4. I Will Dare -- The Replacements
5. Making Waves -- Golden Smog
6. All Together Now -- The Beatles
7. One Tree Hill -- U2
8. Swingers -- The Wedding Present
9. Can't Hardly Wait -- The Replacements
10. Complex -- Gary Numan

Bonus: Lake of Fire -- Meat Puppets

Wow, talk about your "greatest hits of alternative music." (plus a lesser Beatles Track). Maybe I should go into radio programming. What's your top 10?
