Friday Random Top Ten

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

1. Mary Anne With The Shaky Hand The Who
2. Ahora Quieres Volver Samy Y Sandra Sandoval
3. Stupid Marriage The Specials
4. Everything In Its Right Place Radiohead
5. Over And Over Neil Young
6. I Can't Own Her XTC
7. When I Write The Book Nick Lowe
8. Psalmus 111 (Monteverde's Vespro della Beata Vergine) Taverner Consort
9. Triptych Roxy Music
10. Blitzkrieg Bop ¡¡¡RAMONES!!!

As usual, a strange list. We gots yer Who, which is always good. Actually, what I was listening to was the alternative version which came with the iTunes download of The Who Sell Out. It features an organ with a tremblin' lesley and is very nice. Followed by some Típico-pop with Samy y Sandra, gettin' ya ready for Carnaval. What can I say about Stupid Marriage? Just "Tek 'im aweh!" Hmmm, moody Radiohead, from the album I loves and Matty Boy don' like so much. Noisy Neil Young and Crazy Horse (too bad there wasn't a video for this song) and mellow XTC. Nick Lowe (the video is Rockpile) and Roxy. Too bad there wasn't a video of Taverner Consort, but psuedopiskie has probably performed this piece. The Lovely Mona and I sang it in a choir here in Panamá which toured the Interiór many years ago. Finally, ¡¡¡RAMONES!!! doing THE BEST ROCK SONG EVAH! Why dem German yoots just sittin' there? Cripes!

Please to be placing your own top ten lists in the comments for our perusal. We won't mock you.
