Friday Random Ten

Stephin Merritt "The World Is Not Made of Flowers" Showtunes
Emmylou Harris "Waltz Across Texas Tonight" Wrecking Ball
The Flamin' Groovies "Between the Lines" Groovies Greatest Grooves
Uncle Tupelo "New Madrid" 89/93: An Anthology
Glenn Gould "The Art of the Fugue, BWV 1080 - Contrapunctus" The Gould Variations - The Best of Glenn Gould's Bach
Otis Redding "Come to Me" The Complete Stax-Volt Singles 1959-1968
The Pogues "Blue Heaven" Peace and Love

Ed's Redeeming Qualities "Sad" More Bad Times

"Rivers burn and run backwards, and for her that's enough." I always sort of felt that "New Madrid" was the song when Tweedy finally became equal to Farrar, and therefore it shook the group and couldn't bring it back. Just an idea.

Oh, I forgot to comment. That's a damn fine k.d. lang song that popped up on my list this week.

Ahab, it looks more like you forgot to list!

How do you do this anyway? Inquiring minds (ok, Rickey) want to know. Do you simply tell itunes to create a random playlist of 10 songs?

Rickey, I just put iTunes on random and list the next 10 songs it plays.

(To be honest, I usually do this Thursday night and wait to post it until Friday. And often to speed thing up I don't even listen to the entire song.)

1. Ten Pole Tudor - "Three Bells In A Row" - The Stiff Records Box Set
2. George Jones - "He Stopped Loving Her Today" - Super Hits
3. Gorillaz - "Every Planet We Reach Is Dead" - Demon Days
4. Moby Grape - "Come In The Morning" - Moby Grape
5. Social Distortion - "Story Of My Life" - Story Of My Life (Promo EP)
6. Wilco - "Summer Teeth" - Summerteeth
7. The Blasters - "I'm Shakin'" - Collection
8. X - "Unheard Music" - Los

9. Kate Bush - "Hounds Of Love" - Hounds Of Love
10. Son Volt - "Creosote" - Son Volt Retrospective

**Bonus** Elvis Costello - "Living In Paradise" - This Year's Model

Rickey -- there are a couple ways to generate a Top Ten list. You can just put your iPod (or whatever MP3 player you use) on shuffle, and then record the first 10 (or 11) songs it plays; or you can go to iTunes and select Party Shuffle, and it will generate a random selection of songs from which you can make a list of the first (or second, or third or whatever) 10 or 11 there. I usually pull my list from a set that I listen to when I do my after-lunch walk some time during the week.

Since I have never seen anyone else who even knows who Jack Logan is I have this question: Have you ever been able to get the 2nd disk of Bulk uploaded to I-tunes or any other .mp3 play format? The disc works fine listening but won't upload.

Well done then george. Well done indeed. These posts truly are the lazy man's delight.

Hey, I love your Favre Interception Watch! What a prima donna.
