Friday Random Top Ten

Ya pushes "shuffle" and ya takes yer chances. . .

1. Lowside Of The Road Tom Waits
2. Smells Like Funk Black Eyed Peas
3. Blackbird The Beatles
4. In The Darkest Place Elvis Costello with Burt Bacharach
5. Little Cream Soda The White Stripes
6. Rolling Ocean Johnny Clegg and Savuka
7. Hello Skinny The Residents
8. Kokoku Laurie Anderson
9. Nothing New The Social Club
10. Knife Chase Tom Waits

Gee, Tom Waits opens and closes today's list. My "weirdo-music" cred is strengthen by the presence of The Residents, while Laurie Anderson strengthens the "poppy-weirdo-music" cred. Nothing New is from the album I produced for The Social Club, Flogging Peasants. I gosta say, the list started out a little dark and gloomy, but Jake White always blasts away the darkness!
Oh yeah, Happy Friday the 13th!

Hola David.
I don't use the Party Shuffle; I have my entire iTunes library on shuffle and push "play" and list the first ten songs which play.

Thanks for putting your list here. In fact, I invite everyone with iTunes or an iPod or an MP3 player with shuffle to post thier lists every Friday here in the comments (yes, that means YOU, susan s!).

Kinda folky heavy, you hippy you!

I See You!
