Friday Random Ten

Ya pushes the "shuffle" and ya takes yer chances:

1. Change Sparks
2. Telling Me Lies Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris
3. Starman David Bowie
4. Alquien Como Tú Las Plumas Negras
5. Neighbor Combos Nacionales (Lord Kitty, I think!)
6. It's Nearly Africa XTC
7. There She Goes Again Velvet Underground & Nico
8. Praise the Lord, O My Soul, And All That Is Within Me (Purcell) Chanticleer
9. Gloria Juan Luis Guerra
10. Ty Cobb Soundgarden

Ha! Great chorus on that last one! Two Panamanian acts: Las Plumas Negras, a Típico band, and some Panamanian Calypso by (I think) Lord Kitty. It's always wonderful when the Velvet Underground makes an appearance. #9 is not the Them/Patti Smith/A Cruel Hoax Dionysian rave-up, but a gospel-pop song en español. I don't like it, and the only reason it's on the iTunes is because the yoot wanted me to listen to it as a possible piece for the Coro de Jovenes, but the rule on the Friday Random Top Ten is stated above and I must live by it. And #2 is a lush and beautiful song about betrayal.

So I have this tune going through my head now: "Tell me lies, tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies..."

This isn't the song of which you speak, is it?

I See You!
