Friday Random Ten

For something different, the shuffle this week is just from 2007 adds to iTunes, which means it's not just 2007 music, btw.

Glenn Gould "Toccata in D major, BWV 912 - Vivace" Bach Toccatas, Vol. 1
Bonnie "Prince" Billy "God's Small Song" The Letting Go
Son Volt "Automatic Society" The Search
Son Volt "Highways and Cigarettes" The Search
Ryuichi Sakamoto "Manchukuo Waltz" Playing the Orchestra
Sparklehorse "Hey, Joe" Good Morning Spider
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah "Five Easy Pieces" Some Loud Thunder
Mott the Hoople "One of the Boys" [UK single version] All the Young Dudes
Ricochet "Duo de Amor" Astor Piazzolla Remixed
Sparklehorse "Eyepennies" It's a Wonderful Life

Sparklehorse "Hundreds of Sparrows" Good Morning Spider

This turns out to be a tribute to gifts from Ahab, with a bonus gift from Tessitura. Gee, while Visa might disagree, you'd think I didn't buy any CDs this year. There's lots of good stuff here, even with the repeats.

WMP shuffle after new download so I can play flac files (I love "On the Nickel." Interestingly, I can see all the songs I can no longer play, which is many more than half and would make this list very different (I might have had a Mott song, too), though the back-to-back Gillian Welch songs would remain. Two recent punk songs crept in as well.

George, the holiday week threw me off and I forgot to post my list over here. That was quite a discussion Tom got going over there today, huh?

As for the Sparklehorse and "Prince" Billy, I'm honored to have been able to contribute anything to the John Holmes of music collectors! I'll have to try one of those limited shuffles myself, in tribute to your contributions to my modest collection.

Marty, you're breaking my heart with those phantom listings. Please get me a snail mail address via George so I can share with you and try to appease your sadness.

Very kind of you, Ahab, especially as Hem was one of the lost. I'll send George the approval, or you can just contact me through my school email, which is public,

Marty, thanks for the address. I will be in contact with you. I've had a very busy week.

As for my earlier comment, a couple of martinis, some great wine and a cognac coupled with the fluffing our John Holmes gave me over Sparklehorse, had me very expansive last Friday night. And a bit melodramatic.

I'm sure I can't compete with your hip students, but you shall have at least some Hem from me.
