Friday Random Ten

Peter Blegvad "Gold" King Strut & Other Stories
Old 97's "Bel Air" Wreck Your Life
Stephen Malkmus "Discretion Grove" Stephen Malkmus
Pearl Jam "Spin the Black Circle" Vitalogy
Belly "Feed the Tree" Star
Run On "Anything You Say" No Way
Liz Phair "What Makes You Happy" Whitechocolatespaceegg
Jack Logan "Graves Are Fun to Dig" Bulk
Salif Keita "Dakan-Fe" Folon...the past
Terence Blanchard "On the Verge" Bounce

The Klezmatics "Moroccan Game" Possessed

So perhaps our iTunes is possessed, as a single Klezmatics track makes an appearance for the second time in about 6 weeks. At least it's a great cut. Otherwise this list is largely B/B+ cuts saying, "Hey, you forgot about us!" Plus a cut I would want to skip and pretend we didn't own, another from MTVs greatest hits back when the M stood for music, and a coda of world music and jazz.

Marty's got the best of it this week, I think George will agree.

George, thank you kindly for the stack of CDs. Lots of great stuff there to fill out my collection. I'm just now finding time to start enjoying them.

You're welcome, ahab.

Marty does have the best list, but I've sort of given up on mine ever being that great--just too many songs, so our iTunes is like many monkeys hoping to bang out Willie Shakes on their typewriters.

You've got a sort of embarrassment of riches issue, George.

Ha! I finally recognize a few songs, and you declare then B/B+.

Whatever makes you happy, indeed.

Sorry, Mike.

It's an embarassment, not always of riches.
