Friday Random Top Ten Updated



What does Padre mean by "updated"? Well, he's nicked borrowed an idea from pseudopiskie and added links to some songs, so now Leonardo will know how they go!


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

1. This Must Be The Place (Naïve Melody) Talking Heads
2. The Strayaway Child (Slip Jig) The Chieftains
3. Dum Sigillum (Perotin) The Hilliard Ensemble
4. Coming War Ozomatli
5. Divide And Conquer Hüsker Dü
6. Salute Your Solution The Raconteurs
7. Hero Worship The B-52's
8. Hunting Tigers Out In 'INDIAH' Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band
9. Burning Airlines Give You So Much More Brian Eno
10. Evening Hymn (H. Balfour Gardiner) Christ Church Cathedral Choir, Oxford

Well, we certainly took our chances today, eh? A lovely start, and then a slide into slight boredom, and then shaken out of our stupor for four songs. I love Coming War being followed by Divide And Conquer; ya couldn't plan that any better! As much as I love the Bonzos, this song brought things to a screaming halt (and that's two appearances or weeks in a row for the Bonzos, for those of you keeping score). I love the Brian Eno song; Matty Boy and I used to cover it in the early performances of The Wonders Of Science, before we had enough of our material for a set. As for the last track, well, it was only 11:07 am here in Panama when I made this list.

Hey, padre! There's also a little Wonders of Science reunion song over on my Random 10. I would never have heard any Brian Eno except that I met you! Just another thing I forgot to thank you for.

Thanks!
