Friday Random Ten

Pixies "Winterlong" Dig for Fire single
Buddy Guy "First Time I Met the Blues" Martin Scorsese Presents: The Blues
Peter Gabriel "Shock the Monkey" Shaking the Tree: 16 Golden Greats
Old School Freight Train "I'm the Man Who Loves You" Pickin' on Wilco
The Buckets "Buckets Theme" The Buckets
Gomez "Love Is Better than a Warm Trombone" Bring It On
Cesaria Evora "Cabo Verde Manda Mantenha" Cafe Atlantico
Bettie Serveert "Palomine" Palomine
Michael Nyman "Here to There" The Piano
The Handsome Family "No One Fell Asleep Alone" Twilight

bonus
Liz Phair "Nashville" Whip-Smart

An intriguing bunch, this week, a bit more representative of my catholic (no, not Catholic--go look it up) taste. Too bad I have the German versions of PG 3 and PG 4 on vinyl and not CD (and hence not iTunes), as "Shock den Affen" is pretty remarkable.

If you're a Wilco fan and never heard Pickin' on Wilco you should pick it up (sorry)--all instrumental, blue-grassy style versions of many of their best tunes.

Pixies "Winterlong" Dig for Fire single

I'm not familiar with this one. It's not on Bossanova, what is this?

After Bossanova the Pixies released a maxi-CD of "Dig for Fire"--still one of my favorite songs of theirs, btw--with 3 other songs, including "Velvety Instrumental Version" and "Santo." Plus this Neil Young cover, which originally appeared on The Bridge: A Tribute to Neil Young, which even includes Sonic Youth doing "Computer Age."
