Friday Random Ten

Stereolab "Motoroller Scalatron" Emperor Tomato Ketchup
Moe Tucker "Blue, All the Way to Canada" I Spent a Week There the Other Night
Los Lobos "Oh Yeah" This Time
Salif Keita "Moussoldu" Moffou
Elvis Costello "Hidden Charms" Kojak Variety
Beck "Hollywood Freaks" Midnite Vultures
Kate Bush "Between a Man and a Woman" The Sensual World
Neil Young "Buffalo Springfield Again" Silver & Gold
Uncle Dave Macon "Buddy Won't You Roll Down the Line" Anthology of American Folk Music
Elvis Presley "I'll Never Let You Go (Little Darlin')" (Alternate) The Sun Sessions CD


Les Negresses Vertes "Zobi La Mouche" Mlah

It's not a random ten without the Anthology of American Folk Music. Not too many brilliant cuts (ok, the Los Lobos, Neil Young, and Les Negresses Vertes are very very good cuts), but lots of fine artists. And, surprisingly, iTunes coughed up The Pogues (the Irish Les Negresses Vertes) after Les Negresses Vertes (the French Pogues), but that's a bonus bonus.

Nice list, Marty. iTunes' Shuffle is weird like that sometimes. Mine seems biased towards what I've been listening to lately. And it has certain songs and albums that pop up repeatedly. I remember reading a news article a few years ago, long before I used iTunes myself, speculating on what might be behind some of the tendencies of Apple's Shuffle algorithms, which are highly confidential. Does anybody out there know anything about them? George?
