Friday Random Top Ten


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

1. Positive Vibrations The Soft Boys
2. Pakt Like Sardines in A Crushd Tin Box Radiohead
3. Can't Keep It In Cat Stevens
4. Somebody To Love ¡¡¡RAMONES!!!
5. Ouvertüre BWV 1069 (J.S. Bach) Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra
6. Knowing Outkast
7. Ant Music Adam And The Ants
8. Taking My Life In Your Hands Elvis Costello and the Brodsky Quartet
9. A New England Kirsty MacColl
10. On Top The Killers

Well, an interesting list today. We've got the Soft Boys setting the mood, followed by lots of good stuff. Mr. Yusuf Islam makes his first appearance on the Friday Random Top Ten, although under his old name (when you have over 3500 songs, it can take a while to make an appearance!). Adam and the Ants adds an embarrassment factor but at least it's one of the better songs. According to our "It's not going to get any better than this" rule I should have stopped at Number Nine, with the Late Great Kirsty MacColl's version of Billy Bragg, but I decided to keep going as we didn't have a Top Ten last week and Grandmère Mimi had to take up the slack. I believe I should have stopped at Number Nine. And, amazing enough, we have videos for every song! I really didn't expect that!

So, wadda YOU listening to? Please post lists in the comments, along with comments!

1. The Moon and New York City - Christopher Cross
2. Dino's Song --Quicksilver Messenger Service
3. Beck's Bolero -- Jeff Beck (and some truly great friends)
4. Slow Down -- The Beatles (the guitar licks are to die for)
5. Dirty Deeds -- AC/DC (alternative title is Dunder Chief)
6. Hail Holy Queen -- Whoopee and Friends
7. Ball and Chain -- Big Brother and the Holding Company (featuring the greatest all time female singer in the whole wide world)
8. Fire and Rain -- James Taylor
9. Old Black Water -- Doobie Brothers
