Friday Random Ten

Radiohead "The Bends" The Bends
Lucy Kaplansky "Still Life" Flesh and Bone
Roxy Music "More than This" Street Life--Greatest Hits
Amy Rigby "That's the Time" Little Fugitive
Sinead O'Connor "Someday My Prince Will Come" Stay Awake--Various Interpretations of Music from Vintage Disney Films
The Velvet Crush "Heaven Knows" Free Expression
Graham Parker & the Rumour "Soul Shoes" (live) Passion Is No Ordinary Word--The Graham Parker Anthology
The Arcade Fire "My Body Is a Cage" Neon Bible
Roger Eno & Kate St. John "We Stay Still" Familiar
Matthew Sweet "This Moment" Sweet Relief--A Benefit for Victoria Williams

The Mekons "One Horse Town" F.U.N. '90

Random, indeed. That's a terrifically Sweet cover of Vic, a fine Velvet Crush song from a sadly unknown album, the Roxy cut is one of their late period best even without Murray karaoke visions, and there's lots of loved artists, but it's not exactly the best list o' songs. Oh well.

Decent variety of recent stuff,here, though nothing tickles the nostalgia bones. (Well, I did remember fondly our night with the HBs, which I posted on awhile back.) Bends is still my favorite Radiohead album, George, and you've got a cool, eclectic list.

Thanks to George for the Logan, the ERQ and a near-miss on the ERP. And when it rains it pours, as I see a couple of my songs have broken through the iTunes blockade around Generik's list.

Funny how we were just bitching about that. Or I was, anyway. I have a strange power over iTunes.
