Friday Random Top Ten

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

1. Jimmy Mó Mhíle Stór The Chieftains with The Rankins
2. When They Ring Those Golden Bells Emmylou Harris
3. Sacrificial Bonfire XTC
4. Ants Invasion Adam and the Ants

7. Dominica Palmarum Ensemble Organum w/ Marcel Pèrés
8. Where's My Snake? Bow Wow Wow
9. Soap Commercial The Psychedelic Furs
10. Peaches The Stranglers

Well, I don't really like this list much; a little too heavy on the New Wave stuff, but I will say "Thank God for the Stranglers!" It started out all girly with the Rankins and Emmylou Harris. Now, don't get me wrong, I love the Rankins and I love Emmylou Harris, that's why they're on my computer, but I guess I just wasn't in the mood for that stuff today. My faves on this list are Sacrifical Bonfire, Numberless. . ., Dominica Palmarum, and, of course, Peaches. Otherwise this list is kinda "meh" if you ask me and I know you didn't but tough beans 'cuz this is my blog.

Please post your lists in the comments; I'm sure we have no where to go but up!

There will be no sneering. Fred posts his lists and it rarely contains anything not recorded between 1958 and 1971. I like his lists and I like your list. My list today was a bit heavy with stuff from 1978 - 1983. Ya never know what will happen.

My only question is: are you still able to play all those wax cylinders?
ducks and runs

Grandmère Mimi said...

No, but I sure as hell can play my old LPs. I have a working turntable. The sound quality is excellent. Of course, I must tune out the scratches.

My list is way heavier on the Platters than is my collection.

Padre Mickey said...

Matty Boy and I were talking today about the fact that I still use my turntable and play my vinyl.

Fred Schwartz said...

And I just had my turntable from 1974 repaired yet again. If it can't be played on a turntable than maybe one ought not to play with it!

1. Raunchy by Duane Eddy
2. Suspicious Minds by Elvis (The Presley type)
3. California Girls Beach Boys
4. Back In the USSR the Beatles
5. All Day and All Night the Kinks
6. Fingertips Part 2 Stevie Wonder
7. Pappa Was A rolling Stone Temptations
8. 3/5 of a mile in 10 seconds Jefferson Airplane
9. Louie Louie The Kingsmen
10. Love Child The Supremes

There a ten spot for ya!

Padre Mickey said...

I gotta say, Fred, your list is much better than mine this time. Now I'll have that Kinks' song playing in my head for the rest of the day!

Fred Schwartz said...

A lot of those songs will do that. I happened to hear Suspicious Mind two days ago, one would think by now it would have faded!

OT: A big thank you for the plug a couple of days ago!

I See You!
